The Gates (2010)
A "Vampire Diaries" wannabee
4 March 2018
Two vampires that go back and forth between being good

and evil. Throw in a "good" witch, werewolves, ghosts, and

other demons. Then add a main female lead that takes turns

loving and hating the two vampires, and what do you have?

Buffy, Angel, Spike, & Willow or Elena, Stefan, Damon &

Bonnie. Add some additional "supporting roles" in the guise of

friends, and what do you get? "Buffy, the Vampire Slayer",

"The Vampire Diaries" and other wannabees, such as

"Twilight", "Being Human", "Underworld", and more. Then

throw in some odds & ends (more similarities) with "Eureka!",

a bit of "The Grunge" and "The Ring" and you basically end

up with one show with different titles. "Buffy" was okay,

"Twilight", and especially "The Vampire Diaries" were a little

better. And it all culminated with a big let-down in "The

Gates". Don't waste your time with the last one. "The Gates"

only lasted one season, and tried to encompass the main plot

points of all the others in that short time span.
