Exquisite Corpse: Sleepy Hollow returns Monday

Fox’s Sleepy Hollow enters the homestretch of its first season tonight. Though no corpse is as exquisite as this one recapping Ichabod’s adventures.

Fox’s Sleepy Hollow was pitched as a twenty-first century update on Washington Irving’s early-nineteenth century short story, and looks like The Following meets National Treasure, only if Sean Bean was missing a few pounds above the neck. Ichabod and the good leftenant are on the trail of a witch who’s trying to bring about her own resurrection as Sleepy Hollow sets up a monster-of-the-week format that is still watchable, if not quite as much fun as the pilot. Leftenant Abbie has to face her past with her sister and must face a faceless dream demon and when did Sleepy Hollow become Buffy the Vampire Slayer? Was it over when the Germans opened a hell gate and tried to bring about Armageddon?!

I would have written the teaser text in Middle English, but I don’t have that font on my computer. In the meanwhile: John Noble!! It’s like Christmas, but with more skulls! More like *neck*romancer, amIright Deputy Andy fans? Or: A Long Journey for Ichabod and Abbie Wherein They Encounter an Ent. All things about this show are not awesome.

    Did I use that photo for one of the recaps? If not, why not? That photo expresses everything about this show. EVERYTHING. For starters, I’m looking at it, I’ve *seen* the episode, and I’m still trying to figure out what the what is going on there……..
