on Sleepy Hollow

books, op chopper studious
Anyone else catch the finale last night? Boooooo to it being a finale now (and not back until fall, I was kind of hoping they might do a summer run with this first season being short) but for the rest of it,
heee so ridiculous and absurd and so much fun - it really does feel like Supernatural for the 2010s, with Mills sisters instead of Winchester brothers (Abbbbbbie~~~!), and even more crack (following a map to purgatory from zombie George Washington's secret Bible because OF COURSE THEY ARE). And I didn't guess Walter Bishop's (or whosis... :P) secret identity but it has all kinds of potential (also rather love that if I'd thought about it, it's an obvious conclusion, seeing as he's the only other recurring white character on the show besides his parents who's still alive, that I can recall?)

Parents dealing with children who thanks to shenanigans are their age or older than them seems to be a thing on TV these days (there was Henrietta Bishop, and River Song, and of course the amazing genealogical clusterfuck that is Once Upon a Time) - well, it is an intriguing story, and I'm curious where it will go in Sleepy Hollow. Though not as curious as I am to see Abbie get back and kick ass and be all adorable siblings with Jenny, because I don't get nearly enough sisters on TV and the Mills are filling that gap so very nicely!

*raises hand*

I missed an episode here or there but had seen enough to know the players. This show is so RIDICULOUS but so unashamed of it that I kind of have to applaud them for it.

Well, sure. How else are they going to defeat evil?

And I didn't guess Walter Bishop's (or whosis... :P) secret identity

Me neither. Goddammit, Denethor.

Abbie and Jenny were sort of the only reasons why I watched this show. Yes, I do enjoy the bond between Abbie and Crane but that almost felt easy. Writing good sister material for TV is so much harder. I loved their talk before Abbie went off with Crane to Purgatory. The Mills sisters and their tragic past that shaped them is the best backstory of this show.
