Anybody catch the pilot of Braga's new tv show, Salem? It's available for free viewing on Hulu and Amazon.com.


It's a fictional historical drama that focuses on the Salem witch trials held in Salem, Massachusetts during the 17th century. It's contention is that there were real witches in Salem and in Braga's historical fiction, they were running the trials.


Only one episode has aired so far. I liked it, I found some of the main characters to be quite interesting, but I would say it ignores the sexual political dimension of the real Salem witch trials. It's definitely more fictional than fact, and very sensationalized.
