FINALLY a positive and mostly accurate representation of modern Satanism!

It's a great show for adults and teens, but definitely NOT for children. This show manages to be both original and entertaining like the Archie comics are, but not a blatant cheesy ripoff of Bewitched like the original TV show was. This darker and more serious supernatural drama will keep you on the edge of your seat if you enjoy occult references and a bit of dark humor...it has good, positive representations of both Satanic characters and LGBT characters! It's a bit of a soap opera though in that it focuses rather heavily on dating, romance, and who ends up sleeping with whom...
