Sleepy Hollow, The TV Series

Just caught my attention ladies and gents, Sleepy Hollow TV series base on the book of Washington Irving "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow". If their are things in the movie world that I remember the most, it would be crime and mystery movies and Sleepy Hollow of 1999 was one of those.

The TV series premiered on American Channel Fox on September 16, 2013 with a modern-day retelling, its now on its second season, hopefully its as interesting as the novel and movie versions.

Story Rundown

In 1781, Ichabod Crane dies in the midst of the Revolutionary War while on a mission for General George Washington. He rises from his "grave" in modern day Sleepy Hollow after the Headless Horseman, (revealed to be Death, one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse), is summoned back from his watery grave by an unknown party. The resurrection of the one causes the resurrection of the other due to the intertwining of their fates as a result of their blood mixing shortly after Crane decapitated the Headless Horseman on the field of battle.

Lt. Abbie Mills begins investigating the Headless Horseman after he beheads Sheriff (Clancy Brown), Mills' mentor and partner. Mills' investigation reveals the presence of two occult groups, one for good, the other evil, in Sleepy Hollow both of which are concerned with the Four Horsemen and the associated apocalypse. The killing spree the Horseman embarks on causes Crane and Mills to team up.

As Crane's worldview is from 18th century Colonial America, some friction can be expected between him and Abbie, and also between him and the people he must now work with.
