Catch up at Fox.com BEWARE OF SPOILERS In week three ‘Sleepy Hollow’ has completely left behind any ideas that it may be a simple retelling of the headless horseman and cemented itself as a strong entry in to the realm of occult television shows. In other news the rating continue to hold strong so if the slippage can remain minuscule for the next couple of weeks it should level out as having a healthy enough audience to keep it on the…

Catch up at Fox.com BEWARE OF SPOILERS We’re a little late to the party with reviewing episode two after a busy weekend of keeping up with the ‘S.H.I.E.L.D.’ pilot and taking a #GYCO trip to see Paramore. I was pretty stoked for this series after watching the pilot last week because it blew up the mystery and the legend of the show to epic proportions. I also keep a close eye on the ratings so it was great to see that…
