The Gates - Pilot

I hadn't planned to watch The Gates, I feel like I have too much tv already and it seems like juswt another vampire/werewolf bandwagon jumper....

I watched it tonight and I am glad I did - it was pretty awesome... I am pretty confused still but from what I gather it will have a lot of awesomesauce so I am willing to, based tonights pilot, give it a shot.

There was vampires, werewolves and... something else...

It is filmed in Louisiana (how many vampires can they fit down there?) and looks to have an interesting and complicated plot... My guess is witches in addition to the werewolves and vampires (There are ladies with magical potion shops)

Basically a chief of police moves into gated community with his wife and two kids after leaving some kind of drama behind.... within gated community there are some aggressive werewolf boys who have rules and some vampires, and a girl who seems to control minds somehow or memories... *shrugs* it was a lot in one episode but I think it will all come together, I am hoping at least because I am adding it to my pvr series record list.

Who else watched it? Thoughts?

I watched The Gates, it's definitely on my list of tv shows to watch each week. I loved it, it does have vampires and werewolves and from what was shown I think those ladies with the potions are witches. It somewhat reminded me of Vampire Diaries because it also has vampire, werewolves, and witches. For the police chief and his family I think something happened in Chicago that might have endangered their family. I remember that somewhere in the ep they said the police chief really gets into his work, like he never lets anything go.
