@TracyAskew @torgodog  Yeah, Kat has some sort of secret agenda.  Hope they pursue the idea of Abbie studying to become a witch in training.  That would create some believable conflict for Ichabbie.  He would be reasonably hesitant to get involved romantically with another witch.


Hated to see Hawley leave. Odd because I haven't always been so keen on the character.  Yet I've always liked his scenes with Jenny beginning with that scene at the boathouse with the coffee.  I never understood why the writers floated the idea of Hawley and Abbie as a romantic option.  For me, Jawley would be the appetizer relationship to tide me over before the main course of Ichabbie was ready.

Ratings were up for this week's episode.  It was pretty solid with Frank, Jenny and Abbie being in the forefront.  And the karaoke duet at the end gave Ichabbie shippers something to swoon over.  Twitter response was strong with many saying this seemed like first season Sleepy Hollow.

Sleepy Hollow isn't the first show to go through a sophomore slump, but this stubborn shift in character focus has been frustrating. Admittedly, I found some parts of season one to be a bit clumsily written, especially when it came to defeating the weekly monster. "Oh, we must destroy this witch. How fortunate that we're in this tunnel filled with 200 year old gunpowder," or "Oh, we must destroy the gollum. How fortunate we stumbled through this carnival and my blood that just so happens that will kill it has coated this sharp piece of broken funhouse mirror."


And don't get me started on how they handle exposition in the dialogue. And all that Colonial America who's-who name dropping.


A lot has been said about Abbie and Frank's diminished roles in season two, which I agree with. But also lost has been some of the menace and entertaining spookiness. Henry and the Headless Horseman got so emo.Even Molluch seemed less threatening. Considering all the whoop-ass he put on Andy, you'd think he'd backhand Henry for all his mommy/daddy whining. Maybe the producers fell in love with John Noble's voice, but he's not the powerful threat I thought he'd be when the second season began.


Honestly, Katrina could be an interesting character, but the actress isn't helped by the writing. She's a bit of a wimpy witch and more concerned with correcting past mistakes than preventingfuture catastrophes. They could've done something fun with her initial fascination with reality television; but the producers seem happy with her being a Mary Sue. They don't have to kill her. Why not make her evil? I don't care if they retro her history and it turns out that she had an evil twin she had banished to an enchanted mirror before meeting Ichabod, and that twin comes back and takes Katrina's place. Evil lookalike Katrina could be fun. Think how she'd mess with her nephew Henry's mind.


However, this last episode with the haunted painting indicated a shift back to the first season's strengths. Abby spent time at the police station (remember that place) and mentioned the book she received from her mother during the asylum episode. Abbie has shown some ability to master incantations, so perhaps she's going to be a witch in training. Frank returned and the show remembered he had a family. His ex-wife made an appearance.I'd love for his daughter to return.


There are four more episodes left. Hopefully, it's not too late.

One thing I've learned participating in Babe Wednesdays is just how under represented black women are in the visual media and many genres, especially sci-fi/fantasy.


I couldn't find any tasteful Santa Ladies or Elf Ladies, but was able to find some vintage Christmas art.

No one has mentioned Duncan and Jessica from As the World Turns.  They were together in the early 90's.  They married and even had a daughter.  Of course, WW viewers weren't happy with the pairing, so the writers came up with this contrived storyline where Duncan's first wife Shannon came back and he suddenly had to leave Jessica to take care of Shannon in Scotland.  I wasn't watching the show back then, but from what I've read the rushed nature of the parting stunk of viewer interference.


The only reason I started watching ATWT in 2000 is because I thought there would be a bw/wm relationship between Andy and Denise.  But that storyline's potential died a slow and miserable death when the show switched head writers.

@PJDeanwriter  Yeah, I try and tell myself that Katrina is a necessary evil along the road to Ichabbie, but the show isn't as fun with Abbie as a sidekick.


I'm more interested in Barry and Iris on The Flash.  Those rooftop scenes and Barry confessing his feelings to Iris?  They're my favorite bw/wm couple now.


After seeing Alfred and Fish Mooney together on Gotham, I want to see more of them together.  Oh, they could never be lovers.  But just a little bit of flirtation would be good.

@nyaw  Jumping the Broom is the movie you're thinking of.  And I thought her character's husband was light skinned.

The casting is ridiculous.  Just save your money and watch Big Hero 6 instead.


Of course, even if it was cast accurately I probably wouldn't want to see it.  I already know how the story ends.  It's not like I'd be on the edge of my seat worried that the Hebrews wouldn't get across the Red Sea in time.

Netflix is supposed to have an Iron Fist show airing by 2015.  I hope Misty Knight is part of the cast.

@EarthJeff  Thor slept with Zephyr, and Loki wanted Storm, even after she rejected him.  (Might have to zoom in to read the panels.)

@Kaiju_Bleu @Geekette221B  I love "What Dreams May Come."  Sad that I remember my favorite scene is him trying to reach through to his dead wife who had committed suicide and was lost in her own grief.


One of my favorite films is The Fisher King, and one of my favorite movie scenes of all time is him following Amanda Plummer in Grand Central Station and the commuters start dancing.  And near the end when he asks her, "Are you my girl?  Are you MY girl?"
