I love this guy. He becomes known as Crane, instead of Ichabod, on the show. His constant struggles to adjust to the modern world are quite hilarious, and his observations (and rants) about modern society are awesome. Donut tax, anyone?
HERE. One thing hubby and I had been wondering throughout the season was how long would he continue to wear his 200 year old clothes? We agreed it won't be the same if/when they ever decide to start changing things. Well sure enough, one of the episodes right towards the end of the season had Abbie trying to convince Crane to try some new clothes. When he stepped out in skinny jeans I almost died. I *HATE* skinny jeans! They should be banned. And to see my beloved Crane in them was horrifying beyond belief. (Ok, yeah, it was freakin' hysterical too.)
I know a lot of people have tried to watch this show and couldn't get into it. I think part of the problem for them is that it's not a very 'deep' show. At first I didn't like it that they seem to conveniently solve each part of the puzzle they encounter in one episode. Some people don't like the mix of the old story in a modern setting. I think the show has gotten stronger as it's gone on. Characters and things seem more connected now, and not just popping in for whatever handy reason there happened to be. One big magazine or newspaper review said something along the lines of 'There's nothing really scary here but the chemistry and mythology is fun.' And it's true. There is a lot of history in each episode, a lot of folklore or mythology, and then it's sometimes tweaked to add a layer to the story. But it really all comes back to Crane and Abbie . . .
As I said, the first season has ended and we have to wait until fall for the show to return. BLEAH! Luckily we saved every episode on our dvr and I fully intend to watch them all again soon. I will also buy the dvd set when it eventually comes out. But for now I want to make a prediction about the second season premiere. I won't go into too much detail so the spoiler level can remain low.
Ok, in the season finale, Crane, Abbie, and Henry found some information and also figured out they need Katrina to help do something. They found a way to get Crane and Abbie into purgatory, where Katrina is trapped. She explained that a soul can leave purgatory if another takes its place, so Abbie decides this is her part to play in this whole thing, and she stays behind while Crane and Katrina leave. They say they will be back for her and Katrina will take her old spot back and let Abbie go again once the task they need her for is accomplished. Things, of course, don't go as planned and Katrina gets separated from Crane. Also, Abbie comes across some information and is now racing to find a way back out of purgatory.
Meanwhile, Jenny had been working on a lead somewhere else and ended up in a car accident. My prediction is the she will die as a result of this accident, and it will be her soul that takes Abbie's spot, allowing her to leave purgatory. That's very sad to me, but I'm pretty sure that's how it will have to be. Unless those sneaky writers left it that way so it seems like that's the obvious solution........hmmmm. Ok, now I *really* can't wait for the show to come back!!!
Have you watched Sleepy Hollow? Are you hooked like me? Or did you give up and move on? I'd love to hear your thoughts!
