Miscalibrated Internet Receptor Stalks

Just watched the pilot of Sleepy hollow and it's pretty good

Great acting, writing, cinematography (that shot where the camera swings open with the door and gets a shot through the spy-hole? Amazing!) and especially sound design but… [spoilers after the cut]

…what got me most pumped was the titles telling me Clancy Brown was in it. I thought it would be great to have him as a mentor character to the young cop, and then he gets killed in the second scene!? What!

Oh, the lead guy's English accent is pretty authentic, too, so that's a plus. It really grates when American actors put on an accent that only ever existed in BBC announcers in the 1930s, (James Marsters on Warehouse 13, for example) just hire a British actor, Hollywood's lousy with them! I'm glad to see that's what they've done here.

Edit: I know the actor in this case is English, I thought I'd implied as much in the last sentence ;)
