So apparently while watching the KC Chiefs, CHIEFS, play on Sunday against Dallas, there were a shit ton of promos for a new Fox show entitled Sleepy Hollow. Yes folks it’s true, Fox decided that a gritty crime show will now incorporate the story of Sleepy Hollow complete with axe wielding, headless horseman and Ichabod Crane, because nothing says long lasting series than a continuous cat and mouse game of the cops searching for a headless killer. How long do they honestly think they will get out of this premise. We already know the killer of the show. We already can tell that his victims won’t have a head when he is finished. We already can tell this will be a fish out of water story where Ichabod will have to learn to deal with modern technology and form a sexy partnership with his handler. So what’s left here to explore? I just seriously laid out the entire premise of the show in three sentences without having to expend a lot of brain cells to come to this conclusion. Get ready for my new show about a group of fishermen who are wondering why there is a shortage of fish out in their fishing grounds until they stumble upon a man drifting at sea named Ahab who knows the real reason for their fish loss. MOBY DICK.
Anyways, I decided now would be a good time as any to talk about one of few Tim Burton movies that doesn’t get on my nerves. Also it’s a movie where Johnny Depp isn’t doing his usual weird, accessory wearing roles.
