Witches in Salem. Not a new idea and I for myself go back and forth concerning the rating and the quality of this show.
A young woman is driven into the arms of witches by the hubris of the religious beliefs in a port called Salem. The puritans are religious nutjobs, pretending to be believers but are unmasked to be hypocrites, and the witches want their dark lord to rise, but are undone by their own petty fights between themselves. Then to ease the american soul a little, the cruel killing of native americans is mixed in to show atonement.
With all this going on it is not clear for me, where this show wants to go. The second season is almost through and I still do not feel connected with the characters - and this is not for the lack of good acting. I think the producers/directors/writers still need to find their bearing and then this show could rise sky high riding the broom.
