The end of season one was so suspenseful and amazing, and this was...not. I loved a ragtag band of misfits on the run with no resources. Some creepy mercenaries holed up with a fragmented team is significantly less fun to watch. Coulson is kind of creeping me out, and I didn't get much of the character development or team interaction I enjoyed in the latter parts of season one. Ward better be lying because he is way more entertaining as an unrepentant bad guy.
The only emotional resonance was the FitzSimmons arc, and I care about that enough to watch a couple more episodes. I hope they get back on their feet soon.
You know, I can't tell you with a straight face that Sleepy Hollow is a good show, but I can tell you for sure that it's fucking entertaining. The production values seem to have increased this season, so it's gotten less cheesy-looking, and Ichabod has gotten even more attractive (even though I didn't know such a thing was even possible).
Watching Abbie and Ichabod live out some action movie/horror movie fantasy of gunning down the Headless Horseman was seriously my favorite thing in the whole episode. I'm sorry it was fake, but I also like knowing that's what Abbie's id came up with.
And all the scenes where they hugged each other after their long separation! Aw! So much feeling, and none of it seems sexual. How much do I love friendship stories? I think friendships are just as deep and resonant and interesting as romantic relationships, and it's so nice to see at least one television show thinks the same thing.
Oh hey, I found a comment fic meme! Come leave some prompts if you want. I'm going to try and write a couple stories so I can say I posted something in September.

I really want to sign up for some holiday exchanges, but I don't know if I can. I looked at my debate schedule, and I'm working every other weekend of October, three weekends in a row in November, and also the first weekend in December. Half of those are out of town trips. I'm going to miss having a life outside of school...
