Five Reasons FOX’s ‘Sleepy Hollow’ is a Keeper

So if you aren’t aware of hit show Sleepy Hollow, approved then I just have ONE question for you — what rock are you sleeping under?! Not only is it an AMAZING show, cialis 40mg it’s the biggest show on FOX since 24, which is another show I’m still obsessed with today!

Let me explain something to you, if you haven’t read my bio — I don’t really watch television. I think television has lost its touch since the late 90s/early 00s and it bums me out. Too many reality TV shows, not enough quality. It’s annoying. So when I discovered Sleepy Hollow, not only was I happy to see something non-reality show, but I was happy to see something GOOD. And boy, oh boy, is this show good.

It’s thrilling — tons of drama, a bit of scary movie, a bit of humor, and some fantasy. It’s the perfect package. If that’s not enough to convince you to give this show a chance, then allow me to give you — “Five Reasons FOX’s Sleepy Hollow is a Keeper” (and why you should watch):

1. Ichabod Crane

Sleepy Hollow TV series Ichabod Crane

Crane was put under a spell, by his wife (who we discover is a witch), for his protection. He awakens from the spell, centuries later, to new world that makes no sense to him. He soon discovers that he wasn’t the only thing that woke up from a spell.

2. Sleepy Hollow Legend

The story of the Headless Horseman is an American folk tale made famous by author, Washington Irving. It tells of a German mercenary (or Hessian) that was decapitated during the war of the American Revolution. He was buried in a graveyard near a church. He is said to have risen as a ghost and haunts the town. He decapitates his victims, just as he was decapitated during the war.

This is the primary story of the Sleepy Hollow, but there are other overlapping stories. Such as the Four Horsemen, which stems from the story in the Book of Revelations, which is the last book of the Bible.

These tales are woven together in a way that I almost forget which story is which. But I love how creative the writers of this show are! To think of tying the Headless Horseman with the Four Horsemen? Cool!

3. Nicole Beharie is FANTASTIC

She’s a beautiful girl. But what’s more, she’s an amazing actress. In the four episodes that I have seen, she has brought SO much emotion to screen. From her tension-filled relationship with her sister to her struggle to recall her painful childhood, I feel every tear she sheds, every angry word she speaks, every pain filled gasp she takes. Nicole is taking the character of Abbie Mills and bringing her to life. Big time.

4. Fantastical characters & historical flashbacks

Sleepy Hollow Cranky Witch

From witches to headless horsemen to The Sandman to Ichabod Crane in uniform. There is a bit of everything in this show. Fantasy meets reality. Myth meets truth. Science and logic meet the unexplained and unexplainable.

The police force, which is founded on finding factual and tangible evidence, has to rely on the strength and capabilities of a man, who was buried for centuries and doesn’t know how to use a remote control! Or a car radio. And has outrage over “donut tax!”

But it is brilliant to watch!

5. Tom Mison is HOT

He’s British!

Yep, the European imports are taking over… and I do NOT mind.

There is so much that has yet to happen in this show, but it’s already been renewed for a second season, which is fabulous. The show’s been getting fabulous ratings, and the storyline is great. I’m just going to sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride!

Well, there you have it. My Top 5 Reasons to watch Sleepy Hollow. If you have any more, I would love to know what they are!

Geeking out,
