If you took pretty much every aspect of the Twilight franchise and tossed it into an episode of Desperate Housewives, the hybrid that would manifest itself would probably look something like The Gates.
The show primarily follows on the Monahans and their move from their life in Chicago to a picture-perfect planned community filled with vampires, werewolves and witches. Lets get to know the characters on the show, let us bore your with the human characters first:
Nick Monohan – is the new Chief of Police in The Gates. He moves in with his family in order to start a new life from his detective work in Chicago, which ended when he shot a man. He takes his job wayyyy too seriously and feels wayyyy too guilty about everything. Like take a chill pill dude and and for your info … slacking is not as easy as it looks.
Frank Buckley – owner of The Gates. He secretly records residents for their dark secrets (maybe as a form of blackmail). His current wife, Vanessa has a lot of bite.
These are just the humans; we still have the vampires, werewolves, witches and a succubus to introduce. The Gates premieres on Saturday (14th May) at 10:00pm on Channel 5. Let’s all be sugar, spice and everything nice and welcome them to the neighbourhood.
