I can guess what Coxy has to say about this. The technical term 'nobbers' will occur.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Salem_(TV_series)Salem is a fictional story based on the infamous Salem witch trials in the 17th century in colonial Massachusetts, when the government was dominated by Puritan leaders. It questions whether the Puritans were right in their actions, whether the people punished were innocent, and centers on powerful figures who controlled day-to-day lives of ordinary people, but were not who they appeared to be.
I was thinking about getting this, but got Black Sails 2 instead. I'd be very interested to hear what you think.I just found out about this new (April 2014) TV series, and I don't recall it being mentioned on the forum before now. Although I haven't seen more than a trailer yet; it does look as though it's pretty decent. I've just started downloading the first season to watch tomorrow.
Quoting from the wiki entry:

Drama,The Left Hand of Darkness Episode 1of 2
Adapted by Judith Adams
Science fiction with incredible humanity from a brilliant feminist writer. This is the first dramatisation of Ursula Le Guin's 1969 novel which is as groundbreaking in its approach togender as when it was first published over 45 years ago.
In a snow-changed city in the middle of an Ice Age on an alien world, one young man prepares for the biggest mission of his life. Alone and unarmed, Genly Ai has been sent from Earth to persuade the world of Gethen to join The Ekumen, a union of planets. But it's a task fraught with danger. Genly is shocking to the natives. This is a world in which humans are ambigendered - everyone can be a mother, and everyone can be a father.
First Minister Estraven is the only person who champions Genly's cause, but their relationship is deeply incomprehensible and troubling. Genly's life is at risk and he must decide who to trust.
Director: Allegra McIlroy.
Please listen out for Le Guin's superb "The Left Hand of Darkess", this afternoon Sun 11 Apr on R4, or afterwards online. Quintessentially Fortean, an amazing story from a genius author. @Mythopoeika @Frideswide , I believe you are fans, from your life-book-like-lists?
Excellent novel! Pretty long too, is it a single movie?
