Ask Matt: Crossover

Does the Bones/Sleepy Hollow Crossover Make Sense?

Question: I tend to enjoy crossovers, but the Bones/Sleepy Hollow merger has me scratching my head. On the one hand, we have Bones with the ultra-logical, anti-spiritualism in any way/shape/form Temperance Brennan, vs. Sleepy Hollow with its plethora of witches, demons and all else occult. Have you ever seen a crossover with two shows that are not only so different, but diametrically opposed in their worldview? I just don't see how it can work. And on a completely different note, I just finished catching up on Once Upon a Time and I have just one thing to say: Why oh why haven't they found a better wig for Fairy Tale Land Snow White yet? She looks like she's wearing a wolverine pelt on her head. — Pat
Matt Roush: There once was talk of The X-Files and Picket Fences doing a crossover, but that never transpired (although two episodes apparently echoed each other way back in December 1994). It is peculiar for a show grounded in forensics to hook up with a show that dwells so heavily in the supernatural, but as an upcoming story on the stunt in TV Guide Magazine will detail, one aspect that links the two series is how each is built around an unusual partnership of opposites. So as Abbie bonds with fellow law enforcer Booth and Brennan finds a kindred spirit in Ichabod, the prospect of their disparate worlds colliding might not be all that jarring. I'm just hoping it's a fun experiment, and not all that concerned about believing the "reality" of it all. Regarding Snow's wig: Our in-house Once expert Gregory E. Miller agrees with you that the wig is and always has been horrible. Guess it's too late to change it now.
