Sleepy Hollow (the one with the golem, which Abbie apparently heard about at Sunday school, but I helpfully learned about from fanfic)
*bickering about language #1: Scrooge, Christmas trees, & eggnog
*”You strangled me!” “He means thank you.”
*guest star: Henry! (‘hey, so you don’t have much family, and we don’t either, so we could maybe hang out together’ I CAN’T BELIEVE THIS ACTUALLY WORKED)
*bickering about language #2: sex, dating, & crossword puzzles
*Captain Irving and Macey being adorable (“You’re getting hot chocolate, not a puppy.”)
*bickering about language #3: waiting by the car (I guess at least Crane didn’t have an ax this time?)
*”Ah! What hellish form of torment is this?” “Funhouse mirrors.” “When did irony become a national pastime?”
*the Christmas stocking
Really, the key takeaway from this episode was ‘why wasn’t Katrina better at arts and crafts?’ Seriously, she couldn’t have knitted the kid a kitten or something?
Other thoughts: I’m totally willing to go the ‘Jeremy’s not dead’ route. That was the whole point of the crossword misdirection conversation, right?
Quip-Off Tally For The Week:
Neither episode was particularly light-hearted, but Sleepy Hollow did have the benefit of including more Christmas, which I liked. Plus, Sleepy Hollow took two extremely creepy concepts (circuses, dolls coming to life) and made them not very scary, while Almost Human took a not not too scary concept (cloning) and made it super creepy. Sleepy Hollow comes out the winner for the week in my book.
