Yeah, it's laugh out loud funny and one of those shows it's hard to stop watching as I always find myself thinking 'Just one more episode and then I'll sleep!'

I didn't know that witchcraft was massively prevalent in Colombia. I would think that Central and Eastern Europe would be your best bet, or Africa and parts of Asia if you're after something a little more exotic!

Witchcraft is fairly popular everywhere away from the gaze of the Western World. Latino witchcraft appears to be popular in academic circles and the underground of the occult at the moment. I work with an African woman who tells me fantastic stories of witchcraft and Fortean madness from her home country.

Anyhow I was actually making a reference to Gloria from Modern Family...

The reference was totally lost on me as I have never seen it (or even heard of it). The world of TV is a scary labyrinthine place where I very rarely tread.

Despite my little joke regarding your internet witch hunt, I did read somewhere not too long ago that a woman was burned to death in Colombia on suspicion of witchcraft only a few years ago... whether that is true or not is an entirely different matter though. As you know, I'm a casual fan of the occult and witchcraft but it has always been something that has fascinated me. I should really try and indulge my fascination a little more and read more into it.

I tend not to watch telly too much but have lately started to watch the odd boxset people at work have lent me and that's how I discovered Modern Family. You should check out "True Detective", I think you would really like it.

Yeah, once you step outside Europe the rest of the world seems like our Middle Ages in regard to witches. There are some horrific things going on in Africa by witches and those accusing people of Witchcraft. From talking to some of my Pakistani co-workers, black magic and witchcraft are very real problems for people in Pakistan and amongst the Pakistani population here. It all sounds great to me but then again I'm not living with the belief that I could be cursed at any moment or that a djinn might attack me!

A few people have recommended me True Detective. It may be something I delve into eventually, but my general problem is that I have so many films to watch/that I want to watch without also getting invested in a long running show (or multiple shows) as they can become quite addictive and dominate your viewing. I do watch some TV very late at night in the form of stuff I have on DVD, but that is more to relax (and usually fall asleep to) as it will be an old favourite show (usually comedy based) that I've seen many times before.

I've barely scratched the surface where African and Asian witchcraft belief is concerned but it's definitely interesting stuff.

TV is time consuming, I watched "True Detective" in one sitting after being completely hooked by the first episode...here's two images to sell you the programme...
