Yes, of course it’s a ridiculous premise, but Sleepy Hollow is easily my favorite new show of the season, and not just because I started out with pretty low expectations. While it doesn’t have the futuristic science and often nauseatingly horrifying effects of Fringe, it does have a Fringe kind of look and feel and dialog style, maybe because it was created by two of Fringe‘s co-creators (Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman) and many of its producers and other behind-the-scenes-people.
And squeeingly, starting this coming Monday, Sleepy Hollow will also have one of Fringe‘s stars, John Noble:
