    starts Tuesday night on ABC... I know Donna's fully on board... who else is looking forward to this show? what other new fall shows are people excited about?

    I watched the premiere episode of Sleepy Hollow last week - it has potential - kinda mashing the mythology of Sleepy Hollow with a little Rip Van Winkle and adding to it all sorts of supernatural stuff as the headless horseman is none other than one of the four horsemen of the apocalypse.

    I didn't like Sleepy Hollow at all. Looking forward to SHIELD though.

    Sleepy Hollow had too much exposition, but it had potential.

    they crammed a lot into that second ep of Sleepy Hollow to fit the formula that they know works:
    - advance the backstory of one or more of the main characters (in this case, both Abby and Crane)
    - advance the mythology/mystery of the show
    - have a self-contained plot (evil witch that must be stopped)
    - avoid any hint of romance between the two main characters
    - have John Cho in a guest role
