Instead, she MURDERED Mark Darcy. And everything went to shit. What was the point of spending two books reinforcing Mark and Bridget’s soulmate status and then tearing the whole thing down? God help us all if 50-year-old women are only interesting when they’re having flirty text conversations about farts (no, really) with jailbait fuck-buddies and trying desperately to hide their hangovers from their children. If Fielding wanted to write a book about a single woman of a certain age, why not just make a new one up? You can do that, you know. And she may as well have, because I didn’t recognize this Bridget at all. The Bridge I knew was well-intentioned, but clumsy. This one is flighty and obsessed. When she notices her children at all, she’s resenting them for throwing the babysitter wrench into her social plans. She’s now a screenwriter, which I would have bought if she’s been writing a project at all similar to her (it seems) life-full of personal diaries. But no no, instead, Bridget is writing an adaptation of Hedda Gabler. Impressive, right? It would be, if for 75% of the book, she didn’t think that the original was written by Anton Chekov. (“Oh, fuck. Just googled Hedda Gabbler and it IS by Henrik Ibsen and spelt with one b…”) Her dad is dead, so she’s now free to either ignore or make fun of her mother. (“She started to gabble, as she always does when I say I have to go.”) Her once cute and sassy friends are now depressing; no one has anything better to talk about than the Match.com date who wants to pee on her. And why exile Shazzer to LA? Because if she were there, she’d tell everyone to get their fucking lives the fuck together right the fuck now and there’d be no book to read.

“What are holidays for,” Abbie asks, “if not airing our grievances?” Add “Is Seinfeld fan” to the “Abbie Mills Is Perfect” list of qualities and sign Ichabod to do a little grousing. It wouldn’t be Sleepy Hollow without some futile railing against the modern world, and this week’s first target was probably the most deserving yet. How dare McDonald’s not only eradicate a “thrice daily tradition” but also pass off fried potatoes from the Austrian Netherlands as French-Scottish food? Abbie seems a bit of a fast food fiend, so one can imagine just how often Crane is frustrated by the culinary bait-and-switch of the (please to read in Ichabod’s condescending cadence) “drive-thru.” He’s like that angry dad who just wants everyone to SIT DOWN and SHUT UP and HAVE A GOD DAMN FAMILY DINNER. (“I drive a Dodge Stratus!”)

The Top 5 Things We’re Thankful For This Year

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!! I’m getting ready to head to Brooklyn to cook…
May we also point out that, while Ten’s hair was relatively (and disappointingly) flat throughout the rest of “Day of the Doctor,” he has a noteworthy “hair boner” (copyright Kim Rogers) only when he’s sharing the frame with Rose? And don’t you dare say that the height and placement of David’s hair is not significant, because it is the most reliable barometer of Ten’s emotional state that we have. You know this is true.

It’s so romantic that Liv’s MARRIED LOVER – who’s so obsessed with her that he summons her BY FORCE if she refuses to talk to him – built her a house UNDER HIS WIFE’S NOSE that all memories of the several hundred people that he murdered (including her own mother, she believes) are completely erased? Accio, self-respect!

Now don’t get me wrong…the courtly way that Ichabod loves Katrina is VERY swoony. I mean…he knew which necklace was the best for Katrina and it wasn’t the garish piece that Abraham selected. He knew right away that the simple and delicate necklace was the one for Katrina. Which to me proves that his future descendant is none other than Dawson’s Creek HERO Pacey Witter. Head Canon Accepted.
