So a vaguely humpy and fashionably scruffy Ichabod Crane (Tom Mision) wakes up in modern day Sleepy Hollow after being killed in the Revolutionary War 250 years ago, and partners up with Sheriff Abbie Mills (Nicole Beharie) in order to stop the Headless Horseman, who is sort of like Jason Voorhees sans tête. There’s a lot of nonsense about the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse and Book of Revelation and George Washington, Demon Hunter, and don’t get me started on Ichy’s wife, the witch, who’s trapped in his dreams and being chased by an evil hammerhead-shark thing. I wish it had spent a little more time letting Ichabod adjust to the new century instead of plunging us headfirst into the show’s already muddled mythology. Tom Mision is cute, but I’m not sure if he’s Tumblr cute, if you know what I mean. And I’m not sure if I’ll continue watching. I DID like his battered and deconstructed military coat, very Dolce & Gabbana 2009. It was perhaps my favorite part of the show.
