Recap/Review: ‘Sleepy Hollow’ Episode 2 ‘Blood Moon’

rs_293x473-130711142629-634.sleepy.cm.71113_copyLast night was episode two of the new Fox hit ‘Sleepy Hollow‘.  I am going to give a brief recap, but I will try not to give too much away for those of you that have yet to see it.

Recap:

Last night’s episode was called ‘Blood Moon‘.  The Horseman is not in this episode for very long, instead, the main focuses are the witchcraft and demons that are terrorizing Sleepy Hollow.  In this episode, you will see a demon, a couple of resurrections, a bit of witchcraft, a ghost, crazy dream sequences and a lot of fire.

Lt. Mills is slowly beginning to believe Ichabod’s story a bit more as he shows her some of Sleepy Hollow’s oldest secrets.  There is an internal threat, someone close to Lt. Mills, that is aiding the dark forces.  Katrina is still coming to Ichabod in dreams to tell him what’s coming and how to handle it.  Lt. Mills begins seeing a ghost and a few possessions of this ghost will help Lt. Mills and Ichabod discover more about the dark forces that threaten them and all of Sleepy Hollow.

There is a new character that is introduced, she’s a bit evil and I don’t believe we will be seeing her in any of the upcoming episodes. She was the main focus of last night’s episode.

Not to worry, there are still a lot of scenes of comedy cleverly woven into the madness of ‘Sleepy Hollow‘ as Ichabod is still trying to come to terms with how his beloved town has changed in the two centuries he has been “asleep”.

Review:

I loved last night’s episode.  I think it is great that the writers have decided not to put the main focus on just Ichabod and his battle with the Horseman.  With the addition of demons and witchcraft, it gives the show much more substance and greatly increases the wow factor of the show.  With the added substance, the show does not get boring at all as if, the show were just based around Ichabod and the Horseman battling.  The added twists and turns greatly elevate my interest in ‘Sleepy Hollow‘.

I will strongly caution that you pay very close attention.  Like with the first episode, there are a lot of plot twists and dream sequences that help to better explain what is going on and if you are not paying attention, you will be beyond lost.

Sleepy Hollow‘ is definitely showing promise and quickly becoming one of my favorite shows.  For those of you that have read the classic ‘The Legend of Sleepy Hollow‘ and or have watched the various films out that are based off of the story and think it is just going to be the same, I urge that you watch the show.  It is vastly different and, in my opinion, much more entertaining that most of the films out.

Sleepy Hollow‘ has all of the makings to be a hit television series.

For those of you that missed last night’s episode, below is a link to watch it (I know for sure it works for US viewers not sure about UK).  It is spam and virus free.  It is from Fox.
