Personal Quote:

Guardians of the Galaxy S01 E08: Hitchin’ a Ride

agua1

Other than a nameless Venom appearance, I can’t really figure out what the point of this episode really is. We have a wild goose chase, with little logic to the plot, if there is one. It’s fun, yes, but nowhere near as much fun as the first few episodes of “Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy.” Meet me after the hyperspace jump for my brief thoughts on “Hitchin’ a Ride.”

On last week’s episode of “Sleepy Hollow,” we met good ole Thomas Jefferson. Why was the writer of the Declaration of Independence and the third president of the United States hiding out in the sewers of Sleepy Hollow? He and his monster posse had important information for our dynamic duo. Too bad Ichabod and Abbie couldn’t save the books. This week we’re asked the question, “Who really cracked the Liberty Bell?” Our dynamic duo has to stop a coven of witches from gaining power. Which side will Katrina be on?
