Gemma: I finally watched Insecure, which we can mostly save for a longer post if we want. Rasha: Yes, especially since I haven’t seen most of it. Maybe… maybe the way I feel about it is the way other folks felt about Girls? How did people feel about Girls? Maybe I feel about Insecure the […]
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: So Michael’s going to die, or not die. One of those two, definitely. I just read some TV reportage that 20 deaths are planned in TV finales this year. Gemma: Your powers of deduction are astonishing. Given how many TV shows there are, that actually sounds like a low estimate. I did enjoy Michael […]
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: Five things we wish would happen in Sleepy Hollow, a list from each of us. My #1: For once, Hawley doesn’t have a MacGuffin. He’s like, “naw, I’m fresh out. I got nothing.” Gemma: That would be awesome. My A#1 is Katrina either becomes completely evil or leaves the show.
Gemma: Welcome back! So, I’m pretty sure that Sleepy Hollow is the new purgatory. Rasha: Because of all the former residents of purgatory who are walking around? And also because the kid at the store at the end says it’s neither heaven nor hell. You know, the folks at LOST always denied the Island was […]
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: 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.
