I love history, especially legends and folk lore, so I was excited when Sleepy Hollow came to television in 2013.  The basic premise was interesting and, of course, centered around the tiny town in upstate New York and the antagonist, the Headless Horseman. That first season laid the foundation for an apocalyptic battle of biblical proportions... Read More
