Sleepy Hollow Fans: A Podcast To Get You in the Mood For The Season 2 Premiere

After being blown away by a Season 1 finale no one predicted, Sleepy Hollow fans have had to wait a long time for the September 22, 2014 Sleepy Hollow Season 2 premiere on Fox.

There are a few great ways to occupy our minds until the Sleepy Hollow Season 2 premiere — Season 1 is available on DVDs are available on Amazon (check the sidebar, please!).

There’s also a new podcast on Nerdist.com. Usually, TV JURISTE avoids podcasts and web videos. Simple reason, can’t skim them and it’s the rare podcast that can hold our attention.

That being said, the official Fox-approved Sleepy Hollow podcast on Nerdist.com may change our minds. It’s either pretty good or we’re just really desperate for Sleepy Hollow information.

On August 27, 2014, Nerdist posted its first Sleepy Hollow podcast, featuring interviews with Orlando Jones and executive producers, Heather Kadin and Mark Goffman. A new podcast will be posted each Tuesday.

Here at TV JURISTE we love Sleepy Hollow, and thought we were experts. But, this podcast taught us a few new tidbits, including:

  • The creators originally intended to hire Latino actors to portray Abbie and Captain Irving.
  • According to the podcast, a researcher on the show (who was promoted to writer) reported to the executive producers that George Washington’s doctors tried to resurrect him after three days. This supposed bit of alleged history led the writers to create the zombie George Washington scenario in the Season 1 finale. A few brief Internet searches did not yield any credible sources, but plenty of Internet rumors, for the claim that Washington’s friend, William Thornton, actually did try to reanimate Washington shortly after his death. If anyone out there has a credible source for this claim from material written by a historian, please let us know in the comments section!

TV JURISTE  typed this post while listening to the Nerdist.com podcast. I suppose that’s the key to making it through a podcast, multi-task!! Seriously, we’ll be tuning in to the weekly Nerdist.com Sleepy Hollow podcasts.

Postscript: don’t throw this post in our face later with claims that we’re hypocrites. TV JURISTE definitely plans to post a few podcasts in the coming months (they’re easier in some ways and some commentary just works better as a podcast).
