Three years ago, the Fox Network premiered Sleepy Hollow. There is no way to describe this series without it sounding monumentally stupid. Someone had the idea to combine the writings of Washington Irving, the Book of Revelation, and the American Revolution into one mess of a series. British scholar turned American revolutionary patriot Ichabod Crane woke up in modern day Sleepy Hollow, New York, where he teamed up with a local policewoman, Abby Mills, to stop the coming apocalypse. The Headless Horseman is there, and it turns out he’s the Horseman of Death. And everything was outlined in George Washington’s personal Bible.
Really, just describing the show makes it sound, at best, dumb. And, to be fair, it is somewhat dumb. In the first year, the series was actually rather fun. Then the second came around, and, well, it got kinda not good. Now, in season three, the show may or may not be working to fix the narrative problems of season one. How successful will it be?
