REVIEW: Sleepy Hollow Season One

There are little to no spoilers in this review.

I will always remember some advice a professor told me. No matter how great a story is, the ending is what sticks to you. Even if you loved the beginning and you loved the middle, if the ending wasn’t up to par, you begin to regard the media less highly than you did before. Although I found most of the season of Fox’s new show, Sleepy Hollow to be quite enjoyable, it unfortunately followed a similar pattern of having a disappointing ending.

I must have taken the amount of minorities on television for granted, because after my childhood, minorities never seemed to lead shows.

Review: Sleepy Hollow

25 Sep

Often with new television shows, the pilot episode alone never succeeds in hooking the average person. Instead, potential viewers watch the first few episodes, seeking a sample of the series before determining whether or not they will commit to the full season. As a result, I have decided to look at some of the new shows that will come out during the fall and make some predictions about their longterm success.

Today I’ll examine Fox’s new Monday night drama, Sleepy Hollow.

Upcoming New Fall Shows I’m Excited About

15 Sep

Did you notice the title? Shows I’m excited about. Me. MEMEME. Not all the shows, not the best sounding shows, but shows I’m ready to watch for either the most random reasons or because why in the world not.

If you’re interested, I may/may not do recaps on some of these shows. Probably Sleep Hollow. BECAUSE I AM SO EXCITED and will be so disappointed if it’s terrible. :(
