Once upon a time, in Salem, MA, some women were put on trial because they were witches. Wait, no, sorry, they were put on trial because they were believed to be witches. Yeah, it was a dark period for the colonies, and that probably makes for better television than a happy-go-lucky period. There is a lot less you can do with a happy-go-lucky period than with a dark period. But, we'll leave that for now and close with the notion that WGN is launching this new period piece tonight as part of their rebranding effort.
