Netflix had this series and I started watching it. At first glance, it almost looked like it was going down the PTSD explanation of Mary Beth Norton's In the Devil's Snare. But then it went down its own ahistorical path. If you want to take an existing poorly documented event and make up your own history, or make minor revisions to fit your theme, like Henry Miller's The Crucible, reimagining the witch trials as McCarthyism.
