Sleepy Hollow: Deliverance

Eat your heart out, Sam Winchester.  My hair is superior.

Eat your heart out, Sam Winchester. My hair is superior.

I have been remiss in writing about this week’s episode; how is it the end of the week already? No wasting time, then. This week, we learned exactly what that creepy spider crawling down Katrina’s throat was all about: making her the vessel to birth Moloch into this world and out of Purgatory. That sounds like fun, doesn’t it?

Doctor Who: Dark Water

Oh, Doctor, you are in for multiple shocks.  That ain't Mary Poppins.

I must say, I really enjoyed the last two episodes, but this week’s was at a whole other level, and I’m eager to discuss it. Okay, okay, quick recap. “Flatline” was fascinating, with intriguing new aliens from a two-dimensional dimension that were a good kind of creepy. By that, I mean I wouldn’t mind seeing them turn up again down the road. The concept of two-dimensional creatures from a previously unknown universe is something I wouldn’t mind exploring further. They have the potential to become the next Weeping Angels. The special effects were incredible, including seeing the Doctor’s full-size face peering out of a toaster-sized Tardis. It also included the never-not-entertaining bit of the Doctor’s hand creeping over the subway tracks ala Thing from The Addams Family, wearing the Tardis like a seashell.

Supernatural: Paper Moon

Aaaand....ACTION!

Aaaand….ACTION!

What do Sam and Dean Winchester do when they decide to take some down time from hunting? Sit around beside a lake drinking beer and wearing Wayfarers. I kept expecting Dean to declare “I’m so bored!” with every second that passed. He settles for giving Sam crap about his messed up elbow(didn‘t Castiel say it was his shoulder?). You would think they would at least be fishing.

Crane, you are a walking encyclopedia of weirdness.

Crane, you are a walking encyclopedia of weirdness.

It’s Halloween week, and Henry Parrish is working overtime. It seems he needed that piper’s bone flute in order to curse Sheriff’s Corbin’s son, on duty in Afghanistan, and turn him into a wendigo. For those unfamiliar with the legendary creature, it’s a vicious cannibalistic forager who was once human. And this one has the benefit of a far larger FX budget than Supernatural was allowed when they faced the same creature in their first season.

I may be tied to a chair in the middle of a Devil's trap, while you inject me with sanctified blood, but dang, my hair looks fantastic!

I’ll be honest–the first two episodes of this new season did not inspire me to write anything about them. Dean is now a demon, out having a good time with Crowley. Crowley wants them to settle down and set up Hell-keeping together. Sam is looking for Dean and doing sketchy things in his pursuit. There’s also a new character, Cole, looking for Dean as well. He has vengeance on his mind. Sounds promising, but somehow didn’t grab me.

I bet "It's not you, it's me," sounded a lot classier two hundred years ago.

This is the perfect show to watch around Halloween time. They know how to do creepy. Whether it gives you nightmares or not depends on you. But the Weeping Lady might provide some nightmare fuel. As it turns out, Ichabod was betrothed to someone before he departed England, Miss Mary Wells. And despite the fact they agreed to break their engagement before he left, she’s come across the Atlantic to track him down and take him home. The determined eighteenth century crazy stalker could not be put off by a silly thing like an ocean.

If you're going to walk amongst the stars, it's best to take the proper precautions. Lack of oxygen, spider germs, space whales...you never know what you'll run into.

I don’t know what it says about me that I seem to be developing a favoritism for grumpy characters who aren’t terribly likable most of the time. Between The Doctor and David Tennant’s characters on Broadchurch and Gracepoint, I think a pattern is developing. Or, it could just be a fondness for talented Scottish actors, but that makes me sound rather shallow, doesn’t it? Besides, that fondness was already in existence.
