Movie Monday – Welcome to the Small Screen

The Gates

Written by: Grant Scharbo and Richard Hatem

Directed by: Terry McDonough

First Aired: June 20, 2010

Summary: Nick Monohan and his family move from Chicago to a quiet, upscale planned community called The Gates, where he will be chief of police. They soon realize that their neighbors are not who they seem to be.

So, I thought that I might change it up a little this week and review a new summer television show that’s on ABC – not to be confused with ABC Family – that’s completely taken me by surprise and I’m completely addicted. It’s all the thrill and mystery of the first season of Desperate Housewives mixed with supernatural bits of Supernatural. In fewer words, it’s phenomenal. In fact, I’m watching episode three as I’m typing this.

Three episodes in and I’m still left wondering what’s going on completely, a fact that I’m thoroughly enjoying, and everything that is happening is throwing me for a loop. Already there have been vampires, werewolves, witches, healers, murders, and succubi, and I'm guessing that there's a lot more to come.

If you’re looking for a good summer show to counter-balance Big Brother (love), and you’re into mystery, romance, intrigue, and the paranormal, this might be for you.

If you need further convincing, check out the YouTube channel here that’s dedicated completely to this new show!
