    Keep Sleepy Hollow tv show going at least another year. I’ve enjoyed the episodes and plan my Monday nights around watching.

    Sleepy Hollow is FINALLY shaping up to be a show with a complicated back story. This show is pure indulgence for me. Tom Mison is gorgeous, Nicole Beharie is beautiful, and the most important thing, these two have chemistry!! I applauded them adding John Noble (the lovable Walter from Fringe) but feel that so far, they aren’t using his character to bring out the brilliance of his acting. Hoping to see that change as the series progresses. I AM surprised and thrilled to see a second series commitment from them already. But if they want to keep the thrill going, they need to even out the episodes a bit toward a visionary story that builds and grows. Otherwise, we end up with the same-old same-old on too many other typical shows we have to choose from. I hope they get a consistent show-runner who is a talented and organized story teller with some vision. As well as committed writers, directors, and producers. It’s really the only way this show will shine. FOX? Are you listening?

    Well, I DID like it until I realized that there were only a few shows! What the heck! No Halloween episode? Um, kind of defeats the purpose I think. It was such a great fall show….Too bad they will make us wait and by then I will probably not want to see it. This is why I never watch T.V. Thanks guys, really appreciate the planning here.

    What a great new show. The story is really good and intense and the graphics are great. I hope this sticks around…..

    I loved the show, its smart funny, perfectly plotted, and I find Cranes remarks about the turn of the nation very, very charming and correct. I certainly think it has a good chance to go the distance. Its not for everyone. But I imagine there is enough of the mean spirited, badly thought out snarky shows that this one is a refreshing change. And NO. I don’t think its even a bit rushed.

    I really like this how. It so reminds me of “The Night Stalker”. I do hope that it is renewed. I think that it is really well written and the two leads fit the parts beautifully – (not like the horrible PC cast in the reincarnation of TNS a few years ago.

    I really like this show but I am afraid it will go the way of most network shows, being cancelled quickly without giving it a chance. This really irks me with the networks, most shows I really like are all of a sudden cancelled. It has got to the point where I am reluctant to even start new series because as soon as I get into it, it gets pulled.

    I loved this show! I had no intention of watching it until my sister and her husband recommended it. My son and I just watched episode 1 online. We are hooked! I can’t wait to watch episode 2! I had no idea George Washington also helped prevent the Apocalypse. I love it!!!

    I love this show. Great wrting, great actors and right away their connection to each other is that of a show in is 2nd season . They better keep it around. New idea, great special effects and a very talented cast.

    When the coming attractions first aired I had to wonder just where they were going to go with this one. I couldn’t imagine how they could build a series on it. Well, so far they have my attention. Including George Washington in this was shocking but clever. I like it!!

    I want to like it, but the premier felt more like the outline of a story that should have been told and developed over two hours. This was very rushed, as if the network didn’t have confidence in it. I’ll give it a few more episodes to see if it improves.

      Thank you Anthony, you cleared up my fuzzy TV screen. I too wanted to like this, but it felt a little like falling into a black whole. Interesting but lacking a bit of clarity. An extra hour might have been a bit more crystallizing. At another location a post was made regarding the use of “Sympathy for the Devil”, always a fun piece of work, but a very pricey addition. With the money Mr. Jagger made on this it would have perhaps been wiser to use it on better development.
