Jumps right into the action with a scene on the battlefield during the Revolutionary War and continues pretty much non-stop. Terrific to see Ichabod Crane brought to life as a decidedly good looking Brit fighting on the side of the colonies. This version of Ichabod is a stark departure from Johnny Depp’s pale and melancholy interpretation or Disney’s always hungry lanky scarecrow with Bing Crosby’s voice. Tom Mison’s beard is not historically accurate. Most men in the 18th century were clean shaven although I can imagine that while waging war, shaving might not have been a regular occurrence. However, I happen to prefer my men in tall boots and long coats with facial hair so I am more than willing to overlook this issue altogether. It was great to see Clancy Brown (the Kurgen from the original Highlander movie) make an appearance – unfortunately involving decapitation, also a constant occurrence in the Highlander universe. I kept waiting for him to mutter in his incredibly deep voice, “I know his name” or “Of course you are” – two of his lines from Highlander. Ichabod’s introduction to the present day is well handled, humor is interspersed with what I feel are realistic interpretations of how this man would react to an impossible situation. I like the ensemble of characters coming together. Lt. Abbie Mills is feisty and confident as a black female police officer without being preachy or playing the victim. Sleepy Hollow is refreshingly intellectual compared to much of the offerings on tap. There's a lot of dialogue, and a number of historical, scholarly, mythological, and theological concepts that get bandied about with more or less reasonable authenticity. I can’t wait to watch more.
