ScFi Party Line #245 Sleepy Hollow – Ode to Abbie

imageThis past weekend three of the members of SFPL got together to discuss the shocking, and unwelcome demise of one of our favorite characters from Sleepy Hollow, Lt. Abigail Mills. (And no, I’m STILL not okay with this.)

Cat, Darrell and I also pay some tribute to Joe Corbin, who we lost in the previous episode, and reflect on one of last season’s shocking departures in the form of Captain Frank Irving, played by Orlando Jones.

You can listen to the episode here; you can also read my views on the departure of Nicole Beharie/Abby Mills here.

Back to the blog, and I’m in a MOOD because: Sleepy Hollow

I have been trying for weeks to find the “perfect” opening to come back to this blog. After being away for the better part of six months and with so much going on during that time with TV and movies, I was just waiting for the right thing to come along and motivate me to share my thoughts again. In the wake of several of my favorite characters on TV being killed off (or presumed dead), the final straw for me came in the form of the death of a major character on the FOX show Sleepy Hollow. And so I am here to rant. Or complain. Or both.

Spoilers ahead.

Ichabod Crane is venturing out of Sleepy Hollow.

Tom Mison, who plays the loveable and out-of-time Ichabod Crane on FOX’s Sleepy Hollow, has been announced to appear at Dragon Con Labor Day weekend. Mison joins cast mate John Noble, who plays his son Jeremy Crane/Henry Parrish on the hit show loosely based on Washington Irving’s “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” tales. In the show, Mison’s Ichabod Crane is awakened after a 250-year bewitched sleep to join forces with Lt. Abbie Mills, as the biblical witnesses of Revelation with the purpose of averting the apocalypse. Crane and Mills fight various demonic forces – sometimes from within their close circle of allies – while Crane slowly learns to navigate life in the 21st century, all while connecting the present day with events from the past.

Sleepy Hollow‘s season 3 premiere is scheduled for October 1.

Dragon Con is the largest multi-media, popular culture convention focusing on science fiction and fantasy, gaming, comics, literature, art, music, and film. Every Labor Day weekend, about 40,000 people crowd the streets and take over the hotels of downtown Atlanta to meet friends, celebrities, cosplay and totally geek out. This year’s event will take place September 4-7. Ticket information can be found on the official website.

I will need a clone for Thursday nights this fall…

First, Sleepy Hollow; now, The Originals.

In announcing their fall schedule last week, FOX confirmed that the surprise hit Sleepy Hollow would be moving from Monday to Thursday nights at 9pm for their third season. As Thursday night in my household is already a TV-heavy night (we watch The Vampire Diaries, Scandal and How to Get Away with Murder almost religiously) this announcement already gave me a bit of a headache.

Now, it has been confirmed via The OriginalsInstagram account that it, too will be moving to the same day and same time slot.

Get ready for #ThirstDays! #TheOriginalsmoves to Thursdays at 9/8c, right after #TVD this fall! – @theoriginals

I don’t know what I have ever done to the TV or fandom gods to deserve this…I wonder if the clone gods at Orphan Black is taking requests?
