I love the new season of television shows. After a summer of reruns and channel surfing because nothing is on, the long-awaited new shows are about to start. I must admit to having my favorites. Returning is “Once Upon a Time,” “Revolution,” and “Grimm.” Don’t forget the nerds of “The Big Bang Theory” and who else out there is glad we are finally getting to meet the mother on “How I Met Your Mother.” Then there is a promising new show that is a spin-off – “Once Upon a Time in Wonderland” about Alice and the White Rabbit (who doesn’t see a crossover episode in the future???).
But what I really want to talk about is one that I am totally hooked on after only one episode – “Sleepy Hollow.” Wow! Fox has found a winner with this show for sure! First of all, the story is just captivating (yes, one of those that I wish I had written – darn it!). But really, let’s talk about the most important thing – casting. Ichabod Crane, thanks to Disney, has never been one to make a girl “weak in the knees”. Then along came Johnny Depp and blew the theory of Ichabod out of the water (sort of). I mean, yes, he ended up being a hero, but there was still that cute little scared Ichabod of Disney fame lurking in the shadows. But now we have Mr. Tom Mison, and my oh my, he has definitely broken the mold of Mr. Ichabod Crane. Tell me, readers, which one would you rather be fighting a headless horseman with?
I know Johnny Depp has his fans, but Mr. Mison has my vote!!!!
