Guys, I’m not sure how I’m feeling about Sleepy Hollow right now. I mean, I look forward to watching it every week. I find it entertaining and enjoyable. But I don’t have much to say about it. And it’s making me think, what does that say about the show? It sorta feels like we’re spinning in circles and while I really do love the monster-of-the-week episodes, I’m beginning to wonder what happened to the actual plot.
Gotham’s golden rule is definitely not “do unto others,” unless what everyone wants done unto them is murder. No, the golden rule is “no heroes,” which we’ve seen plenty of proof of. The only people not adhering to this rule seem to be Jim Gordon, and Bruce Wayne. Turn out ten years prior another person flouted this rule: Harvey Bullock.
We know what you’re thinking. We do. It cannot possibly be time for holiday exchanges. And yet.
I read my first Hellblazer comic in high school. A friend of mine had a copy of Sandman, Vol. 1 and I fell so thoroughly in love with John Constantine that I wrote his name on my backpack next to Gavin Rossdale’s. A place of honor, I’m sure you’ll agree. Since then I’ve reread all 300 issues of Hellblazer numerous times. I even watched the movie Constantine twice, despite Keanu Reeves not being Constantine AT ALL. (I also thought it was hilarious that Gavin was cast in that movie. Worlds colliding! AND HE WAS SO HOT IN IT, UNF.) I have a bit of thing for this character, because nothing kills me more than a sarcastic asshole with a soft spot for his friends. And yes, I know that a network television show based on this comic is going to be “de-bollocksed” (I’ve read the interviews with the comic writers), I’m still hoping it’s going to be a great tribute.
We understand that even the most hardcore fanpeople have real lives that demand their attention. (Can someone do away with the whole ‘paying bills’ thing so we can quit our jobs and be full-time fans? Thanks.) Here’s a recap of this week’s posts so you can get caught up on all the keysmashing.
Mistrial: 1. A trial that the judge brings to an end, without a determination on the merits, because of a procedural error or serious misconduct occurring during the proceedings. 2. A trial that ends inconclusively because the jury cannot agree on a verdict.
