    •  they are starting to remind me of Dark Shadows (3+ / 0-)

      the old TV show.  I am expecting Barnabas Collins and Quentin to pop up at any time.  Of course the old tv show had the excuse that they literally wrote each week's script on the fly and so sometimes forgot what  had happened the previous month.  For example, one popular character was killed off and then brought back after the fans protested.

      So far the show fails to hold my interest.  They have already missed the first major chance to engage viewers by ramping up and camping up the 18th Century character and his experiences with the 20th Century.  For example, his only reaction to the abolition to slavery is a few throw away lines.  Think of the differences in the two centuries and all the changes and all the squandered opportunities for writers.  I think they have David Barton as their consulting historian

      •  indeed, although the tension between Abbie's (0+ / 0-)

        ex-lover and Ichabod seems promising particularly on the dialogic interchange over prior combat expierience
