Looks like it would make for a bonkers movie that would be the kind of fun ride that Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter should have been. As a TV show? Looks terrible. How the hell is that supposed to sustain itself?

The very idea that you would insist that being a film like Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter would be the better option than a TV series really leaves me scratching my head. Excuse me while I give you the side-eye.

Did you miss the part where I pointed out how that movie didn't work? I hated that movie, but on paper, I like the idea of doing something completely bonkers like that. But that's beside the point; I was trying to say that I can see this kind of craziness working within an 80 minute time frame. But seriously, how the **** is this sustainable over hours and years of television?

Looks like it could be pretty entertaining. Would've been awesome if Brown's character was still alive.

I think Fox would be pleased if this show had similar ratings to Grimm.

Kinda makes me hope that they could make it so the other three horsemen could make an appearance at some point.

To bump this up a bit...

A lot of people are saying that no matter what happens to this show, Nicole Beharie is on the rise.

I hope so, because she's a very talented actress and stunningly gorgeous. She's only 28 so there's plenty of time.

TCA: In Fox’s ‘Sleepy Hollow’, Icabod Crane Meets Four Horsemen Of The Apocalypse, Rip Van Winkle & Superman
By LISA DE MORAES, TV Columnist

Fox’s new drama series Sleepy Hollow bears as much resemblance to the Washington Irving story to which it has glommed on, as Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters did to the German folk fairy tale about the two cute tots who nearly got baked. Which is to say, barely. The Irving short story, set in 1790, was about a superstitious schoolmaster in Connecticut who is competing with the Tarry Town troublemaker for the daughter of a local rich guy, but who gets frightened out of town when his rival lobs a Jack-o-Lantern at hime, while masquerading as as the legendary Hessian trooper who’d had his head blown off by a cannonball in the neighborhood during the Revolutionary War and who returns nightly to look for his head.

Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci has reinvisioned Icabod as a superhero who is resurrected two and a half centuries later, finds the world on the brink of destruction and the Headless Horseman now one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse from the Book of Revelation. Rather than crawling into his bed and pulling the covers over his head, like you’d think, the guy who used to fear Jack-o-Lanterns instead rises to the occasion, teams with a contemporary cop, and unravels a mystery that dates back to the Founding Fathers, which is before even his time.

“It’s been done,” exec producer Len Wiseman said dismissively at TCA Summer TV Press Tour 2013, when asked why they didn’t do a show about Irving’s Icabod. “We knew from the beginning we really wanted to show a different version… He’s tied to the apocalypse and part of a greater war… Yes, Icabod will still be a professor “but our version is like the Clark Kent.” The schoolteacher “is his cover — his day job.” Crane is now an action hero who, in theory, died — or went to sleep — fighting for the “ideals” of this country, and now gets to see what became of those ideals.

The Headless Horseman on Fox had his head cut off by Action Hero Icabod, and there’s some Rip Van Winkle — another Irving short story — thrown in for good measure though, Orci said, sadly there are no plans for a Rip Van Winkle character.

We are such fans of Sleep Hollow growing up,” Kurtzman insisted, despite all evidence to the contrary. In their version, these Irving scholars will focus a lot of attention on the Headless Horseman. Among the things they will explore: How much personality can you get from someone when they haves no face with which to express, well, anything. Kurtzman said they’d hoped to have a scene in the pilot in which the headless horseman was being interrogated. HH can still write, can apparently hear, explained EP Len Wiseman. “You can have that communication – that kind of stuff…What I really love about this guy is, in our version the Headless Horseman is actually almost a mistake…once he gets his head back he’s part of that bigger picture,” Wiseman said.

Wait a minute – HH is getting his head back? Oh yes, only not in the first season, the producers said. Except in flashbacks. Meanwhile, Fox’s Icabod, when not saving the world, is also trying to get in touch with his wife. Yes, Action Hero Icabod had a wife, who is “trapped” in purgatory, “midseason,” or whatevs. She’s communicating with him in dreams, in which there are clues as to where she is and how to get her back. EP Mark Goffman assured critics Icabod wants to “rekindle” that relationship and bring her back.

Later this morning Fox programng chief Kevin Reilly said “Sleepy Hollow” is getting a plum Monday timeslot because it’s a “big tent show” like “Prison Break” and “24.” Washington Irving rolled over in his grave. a

This is silly. Why would the Headless Horseman travel into the future? What is he the Terminator? And Icabod Crane is Reese?

He doesn't time travel. He was killed/put into stasis when he's resurrected in our time.

The preview looks interesting, but knowing Fox it won't last more than a season.

I am excited about the program.

Sleepy Hollow is one of my favorite tales; I love all of the adaptations.
