Sleepy Hollow 1.12 & 1.13 Reviews: “The Indispensable Man” & “Bad Blood”

Despite the fact that “The Indispensable Man” and “Bad Blood” feel very much like two separate entities and not a two-part conclusion to the first season of Sleepy Hollow, getting back-to-back episodes of this show teaches us one thing: the more Sleepy Hollow, the better. That fact itself will become painfully obvious in its eight-month absence, partly because we’ll be losing one of the most fun shows on television but more specifically because these episodes round out the first season spectacularly.

Everything that makes Sleepy Hollow so easy to root for is here in spades. On the lighter side of things, Ichabod is having a bunch of phone problems – auto-correct, GPS, voicemail, poor service and an outdated handset all give him an opportunity to capitalize on the humor of being a man out of time. The only moment that stands ahead of those is when, at the beginning of “Bad Blood,” he wanders into a war reenactment, which he initially believes to be a dream from his past. If anything, there were probably more comedic moments in these episodes than in the average episode of Sleepy Hollow, but considering how dark the events that transpire become, it’s for the better.
