Daniel Much Preferred Beaver Pelt (Sleepy Hollow 2×06, “And the Abyss Gazes Back”)

keysmash television recap sleepy hollow season 2 episode 6 and the abyss gazes back header2014: The Year of the Wendigo.

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.

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.
