May the odds be ever in your favor.

++ It's that time of the year for show renewal/cancellation announcements. American Gods was renewed for a second season after only two episodes! That is absolutely outstanding and wonderful! Elementary was also renewed, it took some time for it to be announced but I'm utterly relieved nonetheless. Agents of Shield and Brooklyn Nine-Nine both have renewals for their respective fifth seasons. I'm sad about Powerless though, it was a cute little show that deserved more attention. And while I haven't even bothered with Once Upon A Time since the first season, just hearing the kerfuffle surrounding their recent announcements has been quite a doozy.

++ Sleepy Hollow has finally been cancelled! I know it's a bit odd to be celebrating the axing of a show, but let's be real, this one is probably the most deserving for obvious reasons.

This show started out with so much potential and promise, it was silly and ridiculous but honestly fun and entertaining, with a diverse cast and the relationship and equal partnership between Ichabod and Abbie being one of the biggest draws of the show. But after the first season the original showrunner/writers left and someone else came in and completely ruined everything that made the first season good. From disrespecting the fanbase and the story/characters to mistreating the actors, especially what they did to Nicole Beharie, the show dug its own grave. This is one of those few examples of shows that started off strong but it all went downhill so quickly. Needless to say, many predicted this cancellation from a mile away, it's just a shame that it didn't happen much sooner. Good riddance, either way.

As a sidenote though, it's genuinely disappointing that we'll never actually get to see Abbie/Ichabod become canon as they should've been, something else the show tried to sideline. I do hope that Nicole and Tom get to work together again in the future, their chemistry was just off the charts and they clearly adored working with each other.
