In Which I Review Sleepy Hollow (3x17)
--Ichabod and Abbie having a normal everyday moment like coffee and donuts is too precious for words.
--"If this doesn't work, we're just two people. In a boat. Singing."
--I don't talk about it much but one of the best things about this show, apart from the natural chemistry between Ichabod and Abbie, is how it defies traditional color lines with heroism. Abbie Mills, black 21st century woman, holding the American Flag on the Delaware, replicating one of the most iconic white-man moments in American history. That's powerful.
--The special effects of the storm were cool, but it would have been nice to see some of this intense (as Jenny called it) hurricane instead of just the after effects.
--So why is the FBI spying on Abbie? Do they know she's a Witness?
--The Ford Product Placement was annoying and obvious.
--"This time you are not alone." These two, I'm telling you...bless.
--One more to go!
