Sleepy Hollow’s independent success is testament to the power of its unique blend of horror, humor, escapism, and mystery, which has been augmented by a uniformly excellent cast and breakneck, twist-laden storytelling. So far, it’s also the only freshman show to have been renewed for a second season.
Saul would prefer having an asset within Iran, someone the U.S. can “control” to force regime change — the only acceptable option in his mind. (Note to Homeland: The U.S. did something kind of similar 60 years ago. Didn’t work out so well!)
It’s one of the weirdest continuing commercials on the tube today — a crudely animated series of ads that feature Antonio Banderas and his sexy accent as the voice of a bee who is shilling for allergy medicine. Nasonex’s ads are almost too weird to work, and yet they appear to, simply thanks to the unshakeable recognizability of their bee-voice. Banderas? More like Beederas.
Why you should watch: Andy Samberg’s quirky cop show, which was created by one ofParks & Recreation's showrunners, was recently picked up by Fox for a full season despite good-but-not-great ratings. SadParksfans can find some solace here; much like the public servants of Pawnee, the ensemble of officers onBrooklyn Nine-Nineare weird but lovable, overly competitive, and frequently incompetent. Though Samberg’s Jake Peralta is at the center of the action, supporting characters like the yogurt-loving and princess-castle-building Terry Jeffords (played by former NFL player Terry Crews) steal the show. LikeParks & Recreation,Brooklyn Nine-Ninealso boasts its own prickly, deadpan department head prone to priceless reaction shots (Andre Braugher).
Straight out of Pawnee: This scene of a youth outreach seminar gone wrong.
It’s to Breaking Bad's great credit that the show doesn't cheat the intelligence of either Walter or Hank for the sake of drawing out the suspense a little longer. A lesser show would have done everything possible to drag this cat-and-mouse game out over an entire season, but Breaking Bad has always played fair.
