No Chance for Romance? A word about Ichabbie.

The possibility of their paring isn’t the only reason I watch Sleepy Hollow, but I think it’s time I addressed the elephant in the room. ^From lissinator.tumblr.com. I’ve recently gotten caught up and watched every episode of Sleepy Hollow*. In my honest opinion Abbie’s scenes with Danny, and Crane’s scenes with Zoe aren’t believable. Their so called “relationships” seem like a contrivance...

“Hollow” Hope?

*Apparently this post’s title was a sign. Only a few hours after I published it, I learned about Nicole Beharie’s latest role. Over the weekend I read this article. Well, not all of it. I skimmed my way over to the section about Sleepy Hollow. Take a look: Fox has Sleepy Hollow, which recently ended its third season with a shocking finale that saw one of its leads die. While nowhere...

This week on Underground

Log line: Innocence is lost when children are forced to face the harsh realities of the world. My first impression? I love the kids on Underground. I can’t wait to see what’s revealed as this episode shows us more of their talent. Also, I wanted to talk for a minute about the characters as a whole. I really love the fact that none of them seem to embody the tropes that you’d...

And not a lie was told.

[soundcloud url=”; params=”auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts=false&visual=true” width=”100%” height=”450″ iframe=”true” /] As I listened to the Black Girl Nerds podcast yesterday, I felt inspired to say something more about Sleepy Hollow‘s latest episode. I agree with...

Sad about Sleepy.

These are my thoughts on the latest episode of Sleepy Hollow. If you haven’t seen it, here’s a recap. Note: I keep tweaking this post. As I said on Twitter, when I write angry, I can sound like a stuffy English textbook. Preface: A Word About Writing In response to a tweet about the latest happenings on Sleepy Hollow, I said that I didn’t have any faith in TPTB (aka The Powers That...

Watch It!: Underground

Since childhood, I’ve been curious about my heritage. I’m first-generation Caribbean-Canadian. I didn’t pay much attention to this fact until I was older. However, there was one thing that I understood above anything else: I wasn’t only Canadian, but North American. A part of me has always been fascinated by the history of Black people in the United States. My country has its own tumultuous...

I approve this message.

If you’ve been with me for a while, you know that last year I wrote this post. Looking back, I think it’s obvious  that I didn’t deeply consider the impact of watching The Cosby Show. However, in light (or perhaps “in spite“) of  what we all know, I felt a strong push to say something.  I was determined not to let one man’s actions ruin the legacy of a show that was a...

Defaults and Diversity

I don’t read many scripts. Just after I typed that, I looked to the skies, hoping that the Scriptwriting Gods don’t zap me. Apparently, I’m breaking a cardinal rule of aspiring screenwriters everywhere. (Rule #1: Watch ALL the movies. Rule #2: Read ALL the scripts…) Quite frankly, I think it’s a waste of time. The public complains about folks in LA constantly churning out the same old thing...

TGIT? #HTGAWM!!

Are you ready? Tonight’s the night! I’ve seen Scandal. The pilot, via iTunes, and…Snippets here and there. I know it’s good. EVERYONE knows it’s good. But the show I’m waiting for is How to Get Away With Murder. Viola Davis is back, looking better than ever. Not “classically beautiful” my ass! “Be careful who you show your crazy to.” “You call it crazy. I call it...
