The Gates …

THE GATES

THE GATES

The characters live in a gated community called The Gates. However, the difference with this gated community compared to others is that not only humans take up residences in The Gates as the community houses vampires, witches, werewolves, succubus and other supernatural creatures. The one code everyone lives by is that no supernatural creatures can hurt or attack another in the community and everyone be it human or otherwise has to live by this code. The only drawback is that the humans does not know of the existence of the supernatural creatures whom they call neighbours.

In the pilot, we see Detective Nick Monahan (Frank Grillo) and his wife Sarah (Marisol Nichols)and their children Charlie (Travis Caldwell)and Dana (McKaley Miller )moving into The Gates as Nick has been offered the post of chief of police after having a trying time in Chicago due to an incidence whereby he killed a man in custody. By the first episode, he notices something strange among the people living in The Gates but he has no concrete prove.

The other characters are the Radcliff’s that is Dylan Radcliff (Luke Mably) and his wife, Claire (Rhona Mitra). They’re both vampires and they have an adopted human daughter, Emily (Georgia Cole). As the season progresses, Nick finds out about the werewolves and vampire community and he does his best to protect everyone’s secret.

The show also has witches in the form of Peg Mueller (Victoria Platt) and Devon (Chandra West). Of these two, Peggy is a good witch and is the doctor in the community while Devon uses her powers in an insidious way.

The best thing about this show is that it doesn’t drag the storyline on whether each character is human or not. The plot is exciting and keeps me on my toes. This is one show I recommend though I do concede that this show is not everyone’s cup of tea.

ABS-CBN To Launch New Noontime Show on February 2011

 

Willie Revillame put himself again in another controversy involving his former home studio ABS-CBN.
During his live birthday celebration last January 26, 2011 on “Willing Willie”, Willie aired his anger over longtime friends John Estrada and Randy Santiago for allegedly closing a deal with ABS-CBN to host a new afternoon game show with Kapamilya female stars Mariel Rodriguez and Toni Gonzaga.

According to Willie, Randy and John are fully aware that he already lobbied an afternoon game show to TV5’s big bosses Manny Pangilinan and Atty. Rey Espinosa which the two will be co-hosting.

If the ABS-CBN show pushes through, Willie will have no choice but to withdraw his place as Best Man on John’s wedding to Priscilla Meirelles this February. Aside from that, Willie also threatened John that he will campaign for Eat Bulaga! just to make sure that John and Randy’s new show a flop.

After ‘Pilipinas Win na Win!’ the Kapamilya network is again working on a new noontime game show which will premiere on February 2011.

The still unknown noontime game show will be hosted by John Estrada, Randy Santiago, Mariel Rodriguez-Padilla and Toni Gonzaga.
Except for Toni, the three other hosts were part of Willie Revillame’s previous noontime game show on ABS-CBN. Mariel used to Willie’s co-host in “Wowowee”. While, John and Randy were Willie’s co-hosts in “Magandang Tanghali Bayan”.

Although no formal announcement has yet to be made by ABS-CBN executives about this new show, it already created a stir when Willie lambasted John live on air during his birthday celebration on “Willing Willie”.
