Anyone heard the word on this? Good or bad? Looks like great potential fodder for WH campaigns! Sleepy Hollow mad a fan out of me with an even thinner premise, so I'm willing to give it a shot. Then again, it could be a set up for a terrible CW-esque show with young, hip, misunderstood pagans in love. :P

Looks interesting. Hope it will be available on Hulu.

Saw the premire last night, liked it a lot.
Very WH in mood and feel. Looking forward to more.

It didn't 'grab' me like I thought it might. I'll give it an episode or 2 more to see though. I can't put my finger on it, but it seems very forced at the moment. There doesn't seem to be a reason for the things that are going on.

It's not going to win any awards, but it wasn't terrible for a first outing. I can see why Harliquinn felt "rushed." It looks like the producers are dropping all sense of mystery with the show. You know who (some of) the key villains are and know what their plan is. The only criticism I had was there were a few moments here and there that I thought would have made an even better show. (What if the true witch of Salem had left with her long lost love and set up shop in 1690's New York, for instance). Also, for some reason, Shane West's makeup (the hair piece, specifically) looks off to me – like a cheap wig.

But as far as fodder for Witch Hunter, this is a banquet! I almost feel the need to amp up my game after watching the pilot. You had a hound, familiars (gotta finish those stat bloc conversions now!), and enough weird visuals to juice any campaign.

So yeah, it's not Supernatural or Sleepy Hollow, but I'm in for a few episodes at least. I figure this is one of those shows that's either going to get better or die after the first season. I'm going to have to keep my notebook handy while I watch, too.

So the whole season is over now and I have to say I enjoyed it a lot. Gonna pick it up on DVD when it comes out.

Darn near perfect WH chronicle for a New World campaign.

Still 4 eps from the end. So spoiler warnings please if you are going to discuss the fine points. Gracias!

Season 2? Yes, it's already a go. TNT is putting a lot of investment behind it and want to keep it going.

Henry has been talking up this show to me for some time. I guess I should get some eyeballs on it.
