Hidden Treasures 5: Sleepy Hollow T.V. Series

Happy Monday Gamers, Geeks and Friends! Today’s post will be the weekly Hidden Treasures post where I try and shine the spotlight on a movie, show or video game that I would regard as an “Overlooked” item. You can view all of our past Hidden Treasure entries by clicking here.  This week I want to give the space to one of my favorite current T.V. Shows; Sleepy Hollow! Sleepy Hollow is an American, historical drama series that follows characters Abby Mills and Ichabod Crane. slee

Forget what you know about Sleepy Hollow from the Headless Horseman to the Movie starring Johnny Depp, this show takes a slightly different approach to the original lore. Sleepy Hollow is a town in Massachusetts that has a small population. The new Detective in the town is Abby Mills and she is working with her partner and mentor August Corbin. One night when called to a disturbance at a nearby ranch, Abby sees something that she hasn’t experienced since her childhood, a supernatural event. images This spirals a string of events culminating with the discovery of a man named Ichabod Crane. What would you do if you woke up 150 years later? This is what Ichabod Crane has to cope with as he wakes up in the modern era. While waiting in the cell, Crane overhears Abby detailing the events that happened at the ranch. Astonished by what he is hearing, Crane lends his information over to the detectives and begins to team up with Abby to track down the culprit.

What I love about this series is that it melds together different tales and takes it stage in modern day America. Crane, who is from the 1700s wakes up in a world filled with technologies that he cannot fathom. The first season really drew me in with the banter he would have with Lieutenant Mills, an African American woman in the role of an officer.

Abbie Mills:
Mr. Crane, I’m Lieutenant Abbie Mills.

Ichabod Crane:
A female lieutenant. In whose army?

Abbie Mills:
You’re not gonna break character, huh?

Ichabod Crane:
You’ve been emancipated, I take it?

Abbie Mills:
Excuse me?

Ichabod Crane:
From enslavement.

Abbie Mills:
Okay. I’ll play along here. I am a black female lieutenant for the Westchester County Police Department. Do you see this gun? I’m authorized to use it. On you.

Ichabod Crane:
If you’re insinuating I endorse slavery, I’m offended.

Abbie Mills:
Wait, back up. You’re offended?

Ichabod Crane:
I’ll have you know I was a proponent of the Abolitionist Act before the New York Assembly.

Abbie Mills:
Congratulations. Slavery has been abolished 150 years. It’s a whole new day in America.

I also love watching the growing relationships between the characters in the show. Due to the experiences each person shares, their bonds deepen and make for really good TV outside of the main story-line. I really believe that if more people gave the series a chance, they would like it. It’s witty, filled with drama, and contains pretty good action scenes. My top reasons to “Play” this series is listed below.

Play:

  • Provides a different historical retelling of some of our nation’s events.
  • Drama, Mystery, Action and Comedy are represented well throughout the series.
  • Currently on it’s 4th season so you will have plenty of episodes to keep you entertained.

    A while back I watched the first couple episodes of this but then got sidetracked (story of my life lol) but I definitely liked what I saw of it. Reading this makes me want to get back into it for sure. Thanks for sharing!

    • Thank you and thanks for the comment! It’s a really interesting series so I hope that you enjoy it. I always like to shine the spotlight on little known titles because you never know what you may like. Due to marketing or just not a lot of buzz about a show or game. Enjoy!
