AVClub: At a certain point for genre shows, being pleasant isn’t enough. Usually that point is right before we hit the season finale, because season finales (and the episodes leading into those season finales) are when the shit, like well-loved velveteen rabbits and little wooden boys with soul, becomes real. The last half dozen or so episodes of Sleepy Hollow have been gratifyingly fun to watch. The heroes are charming, their banter delightful, and the relationships work well. There’s been some decent character development, and the actual plotting, while rarely thrilling, has been able to stay out of the way of what’s actually working: namely, Ichabod and Abbie (and to a lesser extent, Jenny and Joe) doing their thing.
