Synopsis: From co-creators/executive producers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci (the Star Trek and Transformers franchises, Fringe) comes the adventure thriller Sleepy Hollow. In this modern-day retelling of Washington Irving's classic, Ichabod Crane (Tom Mison, Salmon Fishing in the Yemen) is resurrected and pulled two and a half centuries through time to find that the world is on the brink of destruction and that he is humanity's last hope, forcing him to team up with a contemporary police officer (Nicole Beharie, Shame, American Violet) to unravel a mystery that dates back to the founding fathers.
Welcome to Sleepy Hollow
Mysteries and Mythology: The Secrets of Sleepy Hollow
Was very surprised at how much I ended up liking this show. I think the whole biblical/supernatural aspect and historical anachronisms from Ichabod make this a real unique series. Particular kudos to the makeup department for some pretty good work on a TV budget. Here's hoping that foretold 7-year journey turns out to be 7 seasons.
Just wish Fox would've kept Almost Human going, too .
i started this show back when it was released but stopped watching due to my hectic schedule with school. i fell behind on so many shows. i however did finish watching it during my break between spring and summer classes. incredible show! i cannot wait for season two. first day buy of course!
Cool, wasn't sure this was getting a bluray release since most shows were up for preorder months ago so here's hoping for Almost Human despite its cancellation. Then again Alcatraz got a bluray release after being cancelled.
Haven't seen this but I how about re-releasing Burton's 1999 film in a special edition(new extras please) including remastered A/V and of course AVC video(the first BD release looked terrible in every way),
It's been 8 years since the first BD, so let's get on with it Fox!
And the first BD of Burton's film hardly looked "terrible in every way". Anyone with a display large enough to fully resolve 1080p can tell it was a dramatic improvement over the dvd "in every way", even compression. Don't buy into the falacy that MPEG2 is automatically inferior to MPEG4 - it's not. Though many inexperienced reviewers bought into the fad of blaming, even high bitrate MPEG2 for aspects not even related to compression in the early days of the format, and some still haven't learned any better. Not that I'm sure it wouldn't benefit from remastering, as the master used is no doubt dated, but such benefit wouldn't likely be monumental, it would be more in line with The Terminator or Dracula, governed more by the style and techniques in which the film was shot than the limitations of the equipment in use when it was mastered.
As for this show, I wanted to like it more. It grew on me by the end of the first season, but I had a hard time getting past a Headless Horseman riding around decked out in a full, modern era arsenal at first, despite the early episodes being shot in my hometown, before they decided to move everything to Wilmington to save money. Glad to see Fox decided not to shun it on the format like most of their TV shows.
Yay! This show was such a pleasant surprise last season. I loved that it was just simply unashamedly FUN, something that seems rare on TV these days. I rarely buy TV shows on Blu-ray, but this is one I will definitely pick up.
