Welcome to Sleepy Hollow
Verified purchase
Two hundred and fifty years ago in the town of Sleepy Hollow, scholar and Revolutionary War spy Ichabod Crane is killed on the battlefield by a masked Hessian soldier, but Crane manages to decapitate the Hessian in his final dying moments. However, Crane is somehow resurrected in the modern age of smartphones and Starbucks, finding that his headless Hessian foe has also returned, but as one of the the Four Horseman of the Apocalypse.

The end times are near, as witches, ghosts, and demons rise. If the Headless Horseman is reunited with his head, the other three Horsemen will ride as well, and it will be Hell on Earth. Crane, accompanied by street-wise police Lieutenant Abbie Mills, find they are the biblical Witnesses, destined to battle the forces of evil and save the world.

Sleepy Hollow takes a number of interesting and rather fun liberties with Washington Irving's classic ghost story The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, blending it with elements of Irving's other work, Rip Van Winkle, as well as shows like Supernatural and The X-Files. There's even a reference to comic book character Captain America, as both he and this version of Ichabod Crane are "men out of time." The show utilizes horror and supernatural elements very effectively, and also blends these elements with historical elements that cast a new spin on the American Revolutionary War.

The show also uses humor very well, as Crane must adapt to a modern world that he finds bewildering and baffling. Tom Mison's performance as Ichabod Crane shines here, as he doesn't overplay it, his subtle reactions to things like automatic car windows (not to mention cars themselves), and his seemingly legitimate outrage over a tax on donut holes is sheer gold for the viewing audience. His uncanny chemistry with Nicole Beharie's "Leftenant" Abbie is truly the emotional backbone of the show. (Side note - Beharie is exiting the show before its fourth season next fall, so I cannot imagine this show without the Team Witness chemistry of Crane and Abbie.) The great John Noble joins the show halfway through the first season, adding even more depth to the impressive acting talent on display.

If there are any flaws with the show, it's that the season is too short, lasting only a paltry 13 episodes. Also, the subplot involving Katrina, Ichabod's wife who is trapped in Purgatory, lends little emotional heft to the main story. Yes, Ichabod wants to reunite with his wife, but we don't get to spend much time with her or get to see them together often enough to feel anything emotionally for their relationship.

Though the show has fallen off in quality in subsequent seasons - you get the feeling they had a good idea with this show but didn't know where to take it - the first season is still one of the best first seasons for a show in recent memory. It made me a fan, so much that I visited the actual Sleepy Hollow in upstate New York (I live an hour and twenty-minute drive away) and had to enjoy some Apple Pie a la Mode at a diner named The Horseman while I was there. Watch the pilot and you'll get the reference.

Filmmaker Len Wiseman (the Underworld series, Live Free or Die Hard, the Total Recall remake) is a producer on the show and directed the pilot episode, and it exists as probably his best work. Welcome to Sleepy Hollow. The Headless Horseman awaits you.

Horror/comedy/adventure roller coaster ride moves quickly and enjoyably
Verified purchase
Ichabod Crane (Tom Mison) is killed in 1781 during the Revolutionary War by a Hessian mercenary, but since his wife (Katia Winter) is a witch, he rises from the dead in modern-day Sleepy Hollow, New York. Unfortunately, his killer has become the demonic Headless Horseman, so Ichabod teams up with police officer Abbie Mills (Nicole Beharie) to find out what’s happening, stop the supernatural bad guys, and save the world.

There’s horror — all kinds, from outright monsters to haunted houses to more subtle mental fears — and comedy (particularly when Crane encounters a particularly odd part of modern life), suspense, mystery, and teamwork. Mison plays admirably old-school heroic (the British accent helps) while Beharie is determined and strong and caring and fearless, with a mystical history of her own. They’re truly partners, helping each other to win through against the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, trusting each other in spite of their very different backgrounds. When they first meet, Crane gets off on the wrong foot by referring to her as an emancipated slave, since that’s the only thing he can assume about a black woman with a badge, but he soon learns much more about our world.

It’s also great to see Abbie with her sister Jenny (Lyndie Greenwood). They have severe disagreements, but eventually, they’re able to appreciate each other, and it’s a pleasure to see such a complex relationship between two strong women. The interactions among the cast are outstanding, particularly with Orlando Jones as Abbie’s boss, a man who slowly comes to accept the weirdness while trying to protect his daughter and atone for the times he left her and her mother alone.

The show does a good job of balancing the overall mythology — the battle against the Horseman — with specific challenges in individual episodes — such as when a boy from the lost colony of Roanoke carries a plague to Sleepy Hollow, or they fight that episode’s demon or other supernatural threat. As the season continues, we learn more about Ichabod’s history, with flashbacks to his prior life and time with his wife as he seeks to free her from Purgatory.

There’s a lot in this series. They’re not skimpy with ideas or revelations, making for an enjoyable roller-coaster ride with characters you can care about, spooky twists, and some gorgeous scenery.

My Best New Series
Verified purchase
Once again, as happens rarely with TV, I watched the pilot and it was so unique that I had to keep watching. I now cannot wait until season 2 since season 1 is a cliffhanger for all the main characters. You know a series is good when you watch every bonus extra at the end of the set to get as much information as possible about the show, its actors and its creatures-not to mention the directors, producers and all of the staff. And I could have watched even more about it.

This is a very unique blend of a person out of his time and yet not a time traveler. It is about the book of revelations and the four horsemen. There is mythology and magic and witchcraft just to mention a few themes. There is also humor which tones down the scary parts and believe me some of the episodes and creatures are right out of nightmares.

The Chemistry between the two main stars and also their chief and the her sister is amazing. They all seem to fit together so well. What a Cliffhanger. I hope this series is given a real chance and stays on for many years to come.

The acting is great but what really makes this fun is the take on historical figures and events. The show does a great job of humanizing the history and origins of the country even if it's fiction. It's been a good way to get my pre teen son interested in history and finally paying attention in class because he finally realize history can be fun.

It becomes evident rather quickly in Sleepy Hollow that the show's creative team is following in the well worn footsteps of such supernaturally themed shows as The X Files, something they themselves reference in one of the commentaries included on this new Blu- ray set.

Deleted Scenes and Gag Reel

The Corbin Files: is an assemblage of little mini-mysteries excised from the hapless Sheriff's tape recorded musings on his files.

Audio Commentaries:
Pilot, featuring Heather Kadin, Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci and Len Wiseman

The Indispensable Man/Bad Blood, featuring Tom Mison, Nicole Beharie, Alex Kurtzman and Mark Goffman

Welcome to Sleepy Hollow : is a spoiler filled review of characters and plot points.

Mysteries and Mythology: The Secrets of Sleepy Hollow : is an interesting piece delving into the mythology that infuses the series. This also has a number of spoilers.

Welcome to the 21st Century, Mr. Crane: is an amusing look at some of the moments of consternation Ichabod endures as he attempts to understand our modern world.

The Horseman: looks at the series' horse wrangler as well as some of the horses used in the show.

The Horseman's Head: focuses both on the central mythology as well as the actual skull prop used in the show.

One of the best collection of "extras" I've ever had.
Verified purchase
Excellent extras - interviews with the cast and crew, very informative. Really propels you into the whole Sleepy Hollow universe and makes the series even more enjoyable. I love the series, but I don't have any friends who watch it! In fact, I've only met one other person who has even heard of it. Clearly I need new friends. But all that aside, if you like the series already, you'll really enjoy the extras. If you don't know the series yet, this is a great way to start. Excellent strong female lead and, need I say it, hot male lead (yup, those are my standards, pathetic as they may be). More fantasy/adventure/buddy cop drama with a dark supernatural twist. Not conventional science fiction. Anachronisms abound but not time travel per se. Good guys tyring to stay ahead of the bad guys. Good plot twists.

First season of Sleepy Hollow.
Verified purchase
The series deals with a twisting of the Legend of Sleepy Hollow, which in this reality never existed. The Headless Horseman, the personification of death itself, and Ichabod Crane fall into a state of suspended animation when they see to kill each during the American Revolution. They awaken in the 21st century and set off a battle between good and monstrous evil. The first season was, by far, the best.

The Legand of Sleepy Hollow "Some Legands are Real!"
Verified purchase
Amazing show. Season 2 is right on its way. I was able to enjoy this TV show with my family who sometimes everyone here is doing something different that we cannot enjoy family time, but this show was different. I bought it on blu ray so my parents would enjoy it in Spanish as well, Sleepy hollow is a show about one American solider who with our founding father George Washington help fight the British and established America. But little did the American people know that a cult who worship a demon had a different idea for America siding with the British, Our father Washington had to give his all to protect our nation, our future and our rights the constitution itself from evil!...placing a spell on one of their most trusted Mason Brothers to protect the future. The man who beheaded Death!.. turning him into "the Headed-less Horseman" Our protagonist finds himself 200 years in the present year of 2014 siding with a female detective who little does she know her destiny is intertwined with our protagonist. Now, they need to find Washington diary to stop Death and his demon master from releasing the four horseman of the apocalypse and opening up the end of days.
