Yes, thank you, Darren, this is great.

It's been a while since this aired, so here are some quotes from the episode to jumpstart everybody's memory:

Ichabod: I'm saying the rule of tyranny betrayed the weight of my conscience and I couldn't allow myself to give my life for anything less. So, yes, I became a spy under the command of General Washington.
Polygraph Technician: General George Washington?
Ichabod: Do you know him?

Abbie: I told you to stay in the car.
Ichabod: Yet as you know, I am insane and therefore impervious to simple commands.

Abbie: He described the appearance of the man that I saw in perfect detail.
Captain Irving: He described a man with no head. Would you like to corroborate that, Lieutenant?
Abbie: No, sir.

And one of my favorite bits:

Abbie: Mr. Crane, I'm Lieutenant Abbie Mills.
Ichabod: A female lieutenant. In whose army?
Abbie: You're not gonna break character, huh?
Ichabod: You've been emancipated, I take it?
Abbie: Excuse me?
Ichabod: From enslavement.
Abbie: Okay. I'll play along here. I am a black female lieutenant for the Westchester County Police Department. Do you see this gun? I'm authorized to use it. On you.

That really was about as perfect of a pilot as I have ever seen. So often the pilot of a show is just something to suffer through so that you can get oriented, but this could almost have been standalone.

I think you quoted all my favorite parts of the pilot. Especially the last one.

I think it is the humor that really drew me in. The first promos were just dark and spooky, but then one came out with some snark in it, and I decided to give it a shot after all.

I just love all the snark. :D

Shows like this aren't my usual cup of tea but the snark and history pulled me in from the very start of the show.

I agree. The snark, the banter...for me to like a show it has to have wit. The attractive co-stars is also a plus :)
