IT’S NOT SLEEPY HOLLOW WITHOUT ABBIE MILLS…

On the topic of Sleepy Hollow, I think it’s fair to say I am missing Abbie Mills.

I think Alex (Rachel Melvin) and Jake (Jerry MacKinnon) are great additions to the cast. Diana (Janina Gavankar) is very slowly growing on me and I don’t mind Molly (Oona Yaffe). However, it’s not the same. I find the episodes slightly hard to watch as no-one had chemistry like Ichabod (Tom Mison) and Abbie (Nicole Baharie). I am incredibly grateful for Jenny (Lyndie Greenwood) still being there, although the show is slightly hinting at her departure with the ‘new jobs’ that have become available and her only wanting to find and train the new witness (a job that she is currently doing).

I don’t like the fact that they are no longer in Sleepy Hollow (I am in hopes that this will change!) and I don’t like the fact that they are trying to get Alex and Jake together. It all seems a little bit forced. The chemistry between Ichabod and Abbie was unmistakably strong, the bond between Abbie and Jenny (although it took some work) was incredibly strong, as with the relationships between Ichabod and Katrina, Jenny and Joe, Daniel and Abbie, I could go on. Whereas, now, apart from Alex and Jake no-one seems to have that super strong connection. Not even Ichabod and Molly. 

I believe Malcom Dreyfuss (Jeremy Davies) is a brilliant addition to the cast. He is a really good villain with quite a clear plan. His acting is good and his sidekick Jobe is also an asset to the series.

I am still watching, waiting and hoping that incredible things happen and I fall right back in love with the show, but for now… all I’m doing is missing Abbie Mills. It’s certainly not the same without her.

SLEEPY HOLLOW IS BACK!

Good morrow to you!

So, Sleepy Hollow.

Now I for one – love Sleepy Hollow. The film version is probably one of my top 5 films, I absolutely adore it. I came across the series when I was looking for something new to watch, that hadn’t already had too many seasons. So there it was- Sleepy Hollow in all its Tom Mison glory. Now, because I love the film version so much the series had A LOT to live up to… Well we’re on season 4 now and I’m still watching so they must be doing something right, right?

Now the sad departure of Abbie Mills left me, really in denial. I secretly hoped she would be coming back but I wasn’t aware that we’d be losing other characters too. Daniel, Sophie, Joe!? I know we’re only one episode in and there’s plenty more to come but they were definitely missed. One friendly face was of course Jenny, thank goodness she came and saved the day.

I really quite like Jake and Alex, I think they add a nice vibe to the cast and although they aren’t quite Sophie and Joe, they are very likable characters. Diana though? I really don’t know about her, she may have to grow on me… They’re setting her up like she’s the next witness, her wonderful, kind, supportive partner is killed by a demon and its Abbie Mills and August Corbin all over again.

The first episode of season 4 wasn’t dramatic nor has it left us wondering very much. It was more like a setting the scene episode. Ichabod has been taken out of Sleepy Hollow, he’s gained a Homeland Security partner, reconnected with Miss Jenny and has found a wonderful (pretty convenient) archive room set with its own researcher AND engineer.

I’m interested to see which direction they take this season. I think the only thing I’ve been left wondering is, is Diana the witness or is it her daughter? The pictures that kid is drawing of Ichabod aren’t only very good but they are also slightly creepy, especially considering she doesn’t know the guy. We’ll see what happens!
