Have any of you watched the new WGN sereies "Salem" yet? Sunday was episode two and you can catch up on WGN.
I got really excited to watch this show for two reasons. The first being the fact that I am a Salem With Hunt nerd, of like, EPIC porportions. I have always been extremely fascinated by the fact that teenage girls were able to turn a small Purtin town upside down with accusations of witchery and devil worshiping. It also shows how fast a religious perspective can blur actual facts. It has always fascinated me that a town could believe something with no concrete evidence and place death sentences on those who declared innocence. Like I said, I am truly fascinated with it.
He went from this....
The second reason I was really excited to watch it was Shane West was back on TV. I don't know if y'all remember him from "Once Again", but probably will from "A Walk To Remember". I don't think he is hot, I just got excited because I thought he had disappeared from Hollywood only to emerge onto "Salem" with a beard that is ever so slightly graying and the looks of a 40 year old man!
So I get all settled in and excited to watch it and with the first ten minutes I couldn't figure out where in the heck it was going, by twenty- thirty minutes in I was scared and by the end of the hour long show I couldn't wrap my brain around what the hell was happening. Seriously, think Vampire Diaries meets Van Helsing meets some cheesy 80's horror film with bad special effects! Shit was intense, I tell ya! I don't want ruin any of it for anyone thinking about watching it.
Has anyone watched it? What are your thoughts? Is anyone else a Salem Witch Hunt and Trial nerd like me?
