In this episode we explore the fan-grievances-campaign that caused a change in writing and execution from the showrunners of FOX’s Sleepy Hollow.

V.H. (SpoilerTV) – Quote. “Sleepy Hollow is a smart, well-written & acted show that is entertaining, exciting & emotionally affecting.” Unquote. 

J.W. (Spoiler TV) – Quote. “Sleepy Hollow is a great show with a cast that has great chemistry. Reverting back to what worked in season 1 will bring the fans back, the last episodes & upcoming ones proves that.” Unquote.

R.G.R (Rotten Tomatoes) – Quote. “ Thank you so much, Fox! Just thank you so much for interfering with a once bonkers show by turning it into boring formulaic stuff. Absolutely poor decision on your end and this season which held great promise, turned into a snooze fest on most of its episodes. Because when it was great, it was spectacular and hilarious. When it wasn’t… it was below average. Not even sure we’re getting a third season to correct this, because that last episode sure felt like a goodbye and a damn fine goodbye at that. Oh well, still hoping for a second chance…” Unquote.
