SHANE WEST readily sacrifices his body for the Germs. The actor doesn't have much on Darby Crash, the original frontman of the infamous late-'70s L.A. punk provocateurs, who had a habit of cutting his chest onstage and smearing peanut butter on anything that moved before committing suicide in 1980, at age 22, with a heroin overdose. But to portray Crash in this year's Germs biopic "What We Do Is Secret," West underwent intense body modification to match Crash's feral, ragged physique.

First, a really bad Germs bio-pic, followed by three 50-year-olds and a TV actor impersonating the dead lead singer playing live as the band ["With Shane West, 'New' Germs Spreading," Dec. 27]. It sounds a lot more like "Punk'd" than punk to me. The "new" Germs are the complete antithesis of what was exhilarating and exciting about punk, circa 1977. Nicole Panter Twentynine Palms Panter managed the Germs from 1977-80.

"Salem" carries a warning: Witches are real, but they are not who or what they seem to be. The drama, which will premiere April 20 on WGN America as its first original series, explores what really fueled the town's infamous witch trials while exploring the dark and supernatural truth behind them. Set in the late 1600s, "Salem" revolves around an epic romance and "bolder new vision of witches," producers said. In this case, the witches are the witch-hunters. FULL COVERAGE: Winter Television Preview Brannon Baga, creator and executive producer of the series, described the concept as " 'Wuthering Heights' meets "The Exorcist.' " "Our take on this show is that witches are real," said Baga ("24")
