Rasha: So we’re here to talk about the Sisters Mills in a character study, yes, in good part prompted by the death of Abbie on Sleepy Hollow. What have you watched of the 3rd season? G: A plurality, if not a majority. I skipped about six. Maybe more. It was pretty boring. But I have […]
Rasha: DUDE, THEY WENT FULL OCTAVIA BUTLER KINDRED. Gemma: Nearly full. I have to say I appreciated their acknowledgment of their own limits. As I was figuring out the time shift, I was like “sh*t, are they gonna go there? are they actually gonna go there?” and then up come the white dudes and I […]
Rasha: Happy Birthday to You! Gemma: Thank you thank you!! R: For you AND THIS EPISODE!!!! G: Seriously! I have some hope again now. R: I take back what I said about HTGAWM last week. Sleepy Hollow, I can’t quit you. This episode was EVERYTHING. Damian Kindler has to write all the episodes from now […]
Rasha: Are there things we liked about this episode? I’ll start with mine: 1. In an episode that threatened, on the surface, to be an All-Hawley show, we saw pleasingly less of him than we have in some episodes where he’s just Hawley Ex Machina. Which means that: 2. We saw Jenny and Abbie roll […]
Rasha: Okay, let’s first name the things this episode is giving us, aside from life eternal. Gemma: A great deal of fodder for our theory on the meta-narrative of the show as a whole. The beautiful and disturbing ways that we never know the whole story. Complex, fascinating, disrupted family love. R: I’m getting served: […]
Rasha: I want to say about this episode: Vindicated! Gemma: Now we know what that mysterious red mist was. I enjoyed the decreased emphasis on MacGuffins, but I’m really starting to miss Jenny. We haven’t seen her do anything interesting for quite a while. R: Sigh, yes. And Irving. Or even Reyes. I could do […]
Rasha: Okay, I’m ready to chat this demonspawn episode. Gemma: Demonspawn away! R: I laughed out loud when they were trying to break in and Abbie’s like “They’re an evil society, TRY 666!” I love the pitch of high camp and high drama obtained in this show. G: I generally agree, but this one felt […]
Gemma: So, Ichabod’s jilted love! Rasha: It was a nice break to see a character not exclusively deployed in the battle between Good and Evil. She brings ambiguity on so many storylines! I suppose the Piper should fit this mold, but didn’t quite so well. Because jealousy and lies and Katrina! G: Yes! Confusion on […]
Rasha: Ok, to the demon zone? Gemma: The Demon Zone! G: Sad lack of Jenny this week. And rather joyful lack of Katrina. R: Sleepy Hollow taketh and it taketh the bad away.
Gemma: This ep felt evasive to me. Rasha: That is not what I was expecting, but go for it. G: I think they, pardon the phrase given the context, dodged the bullet. R: Oh, snap!
