In Which I Review Sleepy Hollow (2x17)
Guess who goes along for the ride? Welcome to the American Revolution, Abbie.
--Doctor Who shout out right at the start. Should have guessed we'd have time travel based on that.
--So are all those people witches now? Semi-witches?
--Frank Irving is back! I guess? I found this portion of the plot to be very frustrating and poorly written. Do better by Frank and Jenny, writers.
--Ichabod with flamingos. Life is good.
--If Sleepy Hollow wants extra praise next week during the season finale, they will not only embark on a mythology heavy episode, they will explore gender and race in the American colonial period. Having Abbie--a black woman of the 21st century--in the land where slavery was commonplace? Very good jumping off point for discussing race relations in America.
