What I Watched Today – Incl. “Sleepy Hollow” & “Key and Peele”

*NOTE: These posts will contain always #spoilers.

Sleepy Hollow: Maybe it wasn’t a good idea to watch this show before bedtime, especially after that last moment in the mirror. #shivers.

I love Abbie’s voice. It reminds me of someone else’s but I can’t place it. Time to IMDB her.

I think it’s interesting how they took the Sleepy Hollow story and added the Four Horseman in order to stretch the mythology to be TV show length. Despite spoilers, I didn’t know John Cho knew the Horseman, just that he dies, but how did he know what he knew!? Also: YO homegirl got a bite on her!! Yo!

7 years of tribulation… oohlala (#shipping it already, along with everyone else lol) but interesting theoretical series timeline. Also, she is very short and is very tall. I’m sure that makes it hard for the camera crew.  I’m guessing that the season ender might be the Headless Horseman getting his skull (though right now it seems in precarious hands under the protection of an unbelieving and non-powerful police department) and then the other three arriving will be the next storylines.  Obviously it’s sooo far off to tell, but it’s like knowing that on Once Upon a Time, the season would end with them getting their memories back and that’s exactly what happened. I’m ready and would be pleased for a surprise though. I really enjoyed this, it’s right up my alley: mystery, supernatural, with some religion and literature thrown in. Also a black female lead. I am definitely going to continue watching this. (Just have to remember to put it on my DVR.)

Key and Peele: Key and Peele are BRILLIANT. It’s topical and funny and really smart (both clever and use of literature and theater despite maybe some not expecting their audience to care about those things.) Watch the intro Hoodie sketch, the Rap Battle Sketch (until the end), and the Les Mis sketch. Can’t wait until next week!

I also watched:

The Daily Show

The Colbert Report

Late Night with Jimmy Fallon

I suppose only Fox shows started this week. More posts to come next week when more shows premiere!
