Dang, this room is in need of some serious feng shui.

I knew right off the bat this was going to be a spooky one, starting with Abbie’s dream about her ghostly mother. I didn’t realize it was also going to be so touching. A sudden rash of suicides at Tarrytown Psychiatric has prompted officials there to call in the police; knowing Abbie’s connections to the place, Sheriff Reyes gives her full control of the case. Abbie calls on Jenny for assistance, partly because she has firsthand experience as a patient, but also because Crane is down for the count with a nasty head cold. He’s also rather touchy because he doesn’t feel well, so when Hawley brings some roofied matzo ball soup, the trio leave him to sleep through most of the episode.

Mr. Hawley, your taste in entertainment leaves much to be desired.

Mr. Hawley, your taste in entertainment leaves much to be desired.

This is one of those episodes that reminds you how similar the universe of Sleepy Hollow is to that of Supernatural. The two leads investigate a series of unusual murders, do a lot of research, consult an expert in arcane objects, the tousle-haired lead gets thrown around while the other recites an ancient text, the evil creature is defeated, and the two leads have a meaningful chat about the growing threat of the Big Bad. Throw in some snarky dialogue and nicknames, a lot of darkness, some great special effects, a creepy creature, and a bit of television related humor–hey presto, Sleepynatural! SuperHollow? SuperSleepy seems to be the preferred title on Twitter.

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?

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

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.

I must confess, Captain, that while I sincerely support the arts as part of an educational curriculum,  I am puzzled at its predominance in the everyday occurrences of school chidren's social lives.

Please pardon my irregular posting; my work schedule interferes with my writing time most weeks. As my meanderings about Doctor Who seem to have settled into an every other week pattern, I’ll continue including two episodes in those entries. I’m going to attempt to keep separate Sleepy Hollow and Supernatural posts, as I usually have more to say about those. However, I now have another show that I’m hooked on(Gracepoint) that airs during Thursdays when I’d usually do my catch up writing, so who knows how things will pan out.

Onward to Sleepy Hollow!

Do you know another word for "undead soldier assembled from 18th century parts"?  This crossword is quite baffling.

Do you know another word for “undead soldier assembled from 18th century parts”? This crossword is quite baffling.

After last week’s jam-packed episode, this week slowed the pace down somewhat. A bit of a letdown, but really, as much as they crammed into the season premiere, it was bound to be less intense. If the writers kept up on that pace, we’d see the entire implied seven year story arc in three.
