Quickie chat about Salem
As with most new shows I find that the first episode doesn't ever live up to the hype, and this was no exception. That doesn't mean I won't watch anymore, but it does remind me that I need to reserve judgement until I'm a few shows in, otherwise I risk missing out on a really good paranormal program. After browsing the internet for awhile it seems obvious that the ratings for WGN were good but the reviews were mixed.
Is Salem going to be the new American Horror Story, which draws me in each season with masterful plot twits and incredible characters while continuing to horrify with fascinating scenes of blood and death? Or are we looking at the another Witches of East End, a show that was more beautiful people acting magical while having sex and keeping secrets that I could care less about and little to do with powerful witches that lead interesting lives?
