I must say, I’m quite impressed with Salem. Salem is WGN America’s first attempt at an original series. I’m sure the Christians and the Neopagans are not going to be happy with it. But for those of us who are good old-fashioned Devil Worshipers, It’s nice to see a series based on medieval Folklore about Satanism. While the show really doesn’t accurately represent what most real Satanists believe, it’s still nice to see a show that actually acknowledges the belief in a literal Satan for a change that has some basis in medieval beliefs about the devil. It may not be true to life, but as a spiritual Satanists I found it entertaining. If you’re looking for a horror series centered on medieval devil worship and witchcraft, you will absolutely love Salem!
I plan to do a more in-depth review of the program this weekend on one of my other blogs.
