Salem: The Series

    So looking forward to this! WGN America has produced a new series called Salem, focusing on the infamous Salem Witch Trials, probably the most intriguing part of American history, in my eyes. Unlike the play and film The Crucible, the series is proposing that actual witchcraft played a role in the trials and community during 1692. As someone who has grown up with a curiosity for the trials and its secrets, I've spent many years reading up on the subject. I've always wanted to see a show or film portray the trials more accurately, because the tension between the people involved is probably enough drama already. As fictionalized as this depiction of the trials looks however, it does seem like it's going to be pretty awesome! I look forward to the partial accuracies and the fictionalized fabrications and how they will all melt together. I'm not expecting it to be the best show on television, and hell, I may not like it after all, but I think it's worth a shot. If you've been dying for Halloween lately like I've been, this may be our fix!
