The Headless Horseman

The outfit is nothing to write home about, so here’s an impromptu TV review instead:

I had some unexpected free time this past weekend, which I spent watching the new Sleepy Hollow TV show. I love the Tim Burton movie, I like the writers, and the premise looks interesting. So far I’m enjoying it, but I think they make the mistake of overloading it with too much mythology so early in the series – to sum it up, the Headless Horseman is one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse and Ichabod Crane is brought back from the dead to stop the end of the world. Which is all well and good, except it leaves the episodes weirdly uneven, and I often wonder what the “Monster of the Week” has to do with the bigger story arc. They should’ve taken a leaf out of Fringe (written by the same guys, Kurtzman & Orci) and presented it as an episodic show with an overarching mystery, and let us learn about the mythology as we go. Of course, that risks putting the show in the same trap that Fringe fell into, where it gets so wrapped up in the mythology and becomes way too convoluted.

The cast is good, though. Tom Mison, who plays Ichabod, is too pretty for my taste (mostly because I know him from Parade’s End, where he plays the quintessential pretty boy), but Nicole Beharie, who plays a Sleepy Hollow’s police officer unwittingly pulled into the fight to stop the Apocalypse, is awesome, and they have fantastic chemistry. Honestly the only regular character I don’t like is Ichabod’s wife Katrina, who’s not so much a character as a vessel for the writers to tell us what’s going on. Still, it’s only been three episodes, so I’ll keep watching.

    classy outfit, I really like it!

  3. Haha, I am literally sitting here now watching last week’s episode of “Sleepy Hollow” on On-Demand. I keep wondering why Ichabod hasn’t gotten a hair cut or at least some new clothes yet – he continues to wear that one outfit he’s got that’s over 200 years old. Men …

  4. This is an adorable outfit! Your shirt looks so elegant and comfortable, and the red shoes are so fun.
