Motherland: Fort Salem Season 1 Finale Witchbomb Reignited Our Faith

The season finale of Motherland: Fort Salem was a perfect lead into the second season for the recently-renewed Freeform series. Many questions were answered, with some of those answers leading into some rather interesting new questions (and concerns). "Witchbomb" ended up being a silly string can of surprises: some more predictable than others, but still […]

Motherland: Fort Salem Season 2 Gets Green Light from Freeform

While the current health crisis has definitely changed the way the networks and streamers handle their Upfronts, TCA sessions, etc., the work of giving green lights or axes to potentially new or returning series must go on. To that end, Freeform had some good news for fans of Motherland: Fort Salem: the supernatural drama-thriller will […]

Motherland: Fort Salem Season 1 Review: Coup Saves Its Best for Last

This week brings us a new episode of Freeform's Motherland: Fort Salem and while it finally emphasized the sense of urgency, it also left me wanting more in a sense that it felt like there were some things missing that I needed to make it a satisfying watch. However, maybe because there is so much […]

Motherland: Fort Salem Season 1 Citydrop Review: Tally Takes the Lead

This week's episode of Freeform's Motherland: Fort Salem continued right where it left off, packed with action and showing just how far our witches have evolved with their training. As always, we get some inconsistencies with our "rebel" heroine but we also see how much the other two have grown. We witness some particular nastiness […]

Motherland: Fort Salem Season 1 Mother Mycelium Review: A Saving Grace

This week, Freeform's Motherland: Fort Salem finally brings us the urgency and pacing we have been craving. This episode has been the best one so far, putting our witches-in-training in a situation even professors at Hogwarts would cringe at. Viewers finally get a chance to see our threesome in a bit of action and showing […]

Motherland: Fort Salem Season 1 Up is Down Has A Very Raelle Problem

This week's episode of Freeform's Motherland: Fort Salem sparks up something very important that I need to address: viewers need to start having a serious conversation about Raelle (Taylor Hickson). Her petulant character continues to take the attention away from the matters at hand and distracts from the storyline with no real character development. While […]

Motherland: Fort Salem Season 1 Episode 5 Bellweather Season Review

The fifth episode of Freeform's Motherland Fort Salem was a frustrating shocker. The episode was filled with teen angst and it was saved by a very surprising and gory ending. It was an episode to give viewers more of this witches' world, their wedding customs, and more of an understanding of how this matriarchal society […]

Motherland: Fort Salem Season 1 Episode 4 Hail Beltane Review

Last episode of Freeform's Motherland: Fort Salem picked up right where it let off previously, and it was packed with lots of little details and world-building. The show feels like it is starting to pick up and tension is building faster. There are still a lot of questions that have yet to be answered. Viewers […]

Motherland Fort Salem Season 1 Episode 3 A Biddy's Life Spoiler Review

"Motherland: Fort Salem" Gave Witches Room To Work Their Magic [REVIEW]

The second episode of Freeform's Motherland: Fort Salem is much more concise and feels more linear—not sure how to explain it. Pretty sure it might be since our main characters have probably been introduced, our story can move freely and smoothly.  Though I am still a bit confused about the way time seems to be […]

"Motherland: Fort Salem": Chaos Hits Home in "My Witches" [PREVIEW]

Okay – we're not gonna' lie: the opening scene to Freeform's Motherland: Fort Salem completely caught us off-guard. That terrorist attack by The Spree was so disturbingly horrific, it had me checking to see if something screwed up and I was watching American Horror Story. The series doesn't exactly believe in the term "subtle" – […]

"Motherland: Fort Salem" Opener Casts Promising, Flawed Spell [REVIEW]

As first episodes go, Freeform's Motherland: Fort Salem did a strong job of meeting season-starting expectations. It set the series' tone and introduced us to our main characters without having to beat us over the head with their pasts. It grabbed my attention and kept me watching. By the time the hour passed, I was […]
