I know, I haven’t done a review in a while, but I’m currently traveling Europe! I haven’t had much reading time, but I started watching Sleepy Hollow and thought I’d try including tv reviews into this blog! I binge watched two seasons of this show, and I can’t separate them in my mind. This is a review for the whole show, and the entirety of this review is spoiler free.-Sleepy-Hollow-promotional-poster-sleepy-hollow-tv-series-35189274-401-595

So, this TV show is about a man from colonial America, Ichabod Crane. He travels to America, leaving his life in England behind. Here, he participates in the war between the English and the American. Things happen, and Crane finds himself in modern day New York (the state, not the city). The demon he had to fight back in his time has come back, and he has to continue his battle with it. In the modern city of Sleepy Hollow, he meets Abbie Mills (this amazing, kickass female character who deserves all the love in the world).

Crane and Abbie form this really close relationship over the course of the show (platonic, because Crane has a wife), but it’s one of the coolest relationships I’ve seen on TV. They constantly have each other’s backs and are willing to sacrifice for the other. One thing I love about Crane is his adaption to modern technology – a process that is filled with laughs, and keeps the show lighter. Over the course of two seasons, this humour doesn’t stop. There is constantly small things for the viewers entertainment.

Sleepy_hollow_lyndie_greenwood_Another thing I love about this show, is the amount of diversity within. Abbie and her sister, Jenny, are both strong WOC and main characters. There’s also Frank Irving, a POC. Sleepy Hollow follows two families very closely: Abbie and Crane’s families. In the second season, the show brings Irving’s family into more importance, although not as much as Abbie’s or Crane’s. Having diverse characters is one thing, but it’s the portrayal of these POC’s that’s the most important. Both Abbie and Jenny are incredibly strong willed and highly important to the storyline. None of the characters are treated differently (by writers and other characters within the show) based on their skin colour.

I’ve rated Sleepy Hollows 5 stars because it’s an easy show to follow because it’s fun for the viewer. I wouldn’t say this is a family show as there’s probably too much gore and killing for younger audiences. (Perfectly suitable for teenagers +). The overall plot is amazing, and I love the character development from all of the characters (the most change coming from Katrina), although my favourite changes are Crane and Jenny.
