What do you think is making Sleepy Hollow not only a huge ratings hit, but a huge fandom hit as well?
I think there’s various things, and I can only speak to the things that connect me to it from a fan perspective. THere’s a lot of different points of entry into the show. If you’re just a history buff who wants to learn about the secret lives of the founding fathers, that element is in the show and it’s not entirely fiction based. If you’re a fan of mythology and supernatural elements, we have that. If you’re a fan of procedurals, from a storytelling element it’s hard to get ahead of where we are going. The time travel world is there too.
