    Started yesterday, replays on Friday night. Anyone watch it?

    I kind of like it. Some of the fish out of water jokes were corny, but I'm giving it a couple more episodes.

    I thought it wasn't bad. I plan on giving it a couple more episodes as well.

    I said it in another thread, but I just can't believe this is a show, and that it will last longer than 4-6 shows.
    I was reading Defamer's TV preview the other day, and they did Sleepy Hollow.

    This is obviously not a show to be taken as a realistic portrayal, consequently, after suspending disbelief, I found the first episode to be enjoyable. I'm in to watch the show for as long as it holds my interest.

    Completely forgot to DVR it, which means it might be a season before I get to it.

    I felt the same exact way when I heard that this show existed. If it gets a 2nd season then I'll check this show out over the summer.

    I might have changed my mind on this after listening to Andy Greenwald's description on Hollywood Prospectus Pod...

    "It is SOOO crazy... It's basically like National Treasure meets Once Upon A Time meets Starbucks jokes. The Headless horseman is one of the horseman of the apocolpase... And George Washington was basically dealing with Witches to win the Rev/War, there's cults, and the world is ending... and it's set in Westchester."

    "This show owns its craziness, it knows how bonzers it is"

    I just read John Noble's going to be on it, so I'm probably going to start watching. I hope it's not another Alcatraz.

    I hate the chick playing the cop, and the whole "Hey, it's 2013, meh" attitude of Crane annoys me, but I'll give it a chance to grow on me.

    Anyone watch episode 2? I saw the first 5 minutes before I went to the gym and was already nervous that they have no idea what to do. But I'll still watch it later this week.

    I have a couple of shows DVRed that I'm going to plow throw eventually, including this one.

    I didn't hate #2. It gave me hope that they'll find some kind of footing. Still feels a little wooden, but better than the first one.

    I liked both of them.....Granted there were some issues ...industrial metal walk ways and stairs in tunnels forgotten under the town for over 200 years....

    That was annoying me too. Lazy production design.

    Anyone else think the shots of the Four Horsemen in the trailer for upcoming episodes purposely looked like the picture from the Judas Priest Nostradamus album? Like they googled "Four Horsemen" and just ripped it off exactly?

    I was in after watching the first episode (I was teetering on the fence after the Headless Horseman was using the guns stolen from Harolds gun safe) but after watching the second I am on the border of not watching anymore. I will watch a few more and see what happens. Was anyone else reminded of Terminator 2 when abbies sister aka Sarah Conner was doing pull ups in the nut hut?

    I don't know how I feel about Orlando Jones being in the show or the dead sheriff that is now haunting Abbie and being her spirit guy. He reminds me too much of his role in Pet Sematary 2.

    There's no way you couldn't be reminded of Sarah Connor.

    The interesting thing is this addition of the dead cop and all his research, originally Ichabod and the cop found an old library with all these old documents left behind, maybe they thought that was too much like "National Treasure".

    I am watching S01E03 right now and the FOx affiliate in boston broadcast it in SD over the HD or something because it looks like shit. I know it is the HD feed but it looks horrible
