Show Notes Chapter Markers

Happy Wine Wednesday! It's the holiday season and shows are on hiatus, so it's the perfect time to discover new faves and take the occasional trip down memory lane to revisit past shows.  In the previous episode, Reverend Solomon Missouri and I discussed a new fave - The Bear.  This week, I'm switching gears and revisiting a show that had so much potential and then completely alienated its audience in an astonishing fashion - Sleepy Hollow.

I'm joined this week by Stacey and Tamara to unpack our very complicated relationship with this series.  The discussion is broken out into two parts.  In part 1, we discuss the Sleepy Hollow pilot and revisit the magic of Tom Mison and Nicole Beharie on screen.  As always, the pilot discussion is spoiler free and limited to the events of the pilot only. 

In part 2 of the discussion, we talk about the series as a whole and pull no punches.  We get into the terrible treatment of Abbie Mills as a character and Nicole Beharie as an actress.  We discuss the writers biggest crimes against the audience and the many, many times the show completely wasted the potential of its talented cast.  It was a long overdue, cathartic conversation about a show that went from being must see television to me  blocking most of the writers' room on social media after their poor responses to valid criticisms from the fans.

Check the chapter markers to see where part 2 of the discussion begins (roughly around the 1:16:00 mark).

Friendly reminder: we drink, we know things, we use adult language, and we have a good time!
