WE BREAK DOWN THE FIRST 17 SUPERNATURAL MINUTES OF THE GATES
ABC put the first 17 minutes of its new supernatural series The Gates online. You can see it below and we have a short, spoiler-ish summary after that if you don’t feel like watching.
In the first scene we see a contractor crash his truck after almost running over a kid in an exclusive, wealthy community called The Gates. The kid’s mom, a seductive-looking Euro MILF, lures the contractor into her house. Enticing him into the kitchen for sex, she instead pops out some fangs and bites him. OMG, she’s a Euro MILF vampire! Later she takes a shower to cleanse herself of blood, looking guilty and shamed the whole time.
Meanwhile, a family moves into the community: a guy who we learn is the new chief of police for the town. He and his family seem amazed by their new home, which, oddly enough, they’ve never seen before (not sure what that’s about).
Back with the Euro MILF vampire, we see her rubbing some kind of cream or ointment on her legs, then one of her legs burns slightly for reasons we’re sure we’ll learn soon enough.
Then there is some boring school stuff and a shot of the chief visiting the high-tech police station. There the two deputies show the chief that the entire town is wired with cameras. And, oh look, they can see a recording of the crashed truck and the contractor going into Euro MILF vampire’s house.

RHONA MITRA IS A VAMPIRE WITH A CONSCIENCE IN ‘THE GATES’
In the ABC summer drama “The Gates,” premiering Sunday, June 20, Rhona Mitra plays a wife and mother in an exclusive gated community who has some outstanding skills.
“My character does make mean red-velvet cupcakes,” she says.
But Claire Radcliff also has an issue — she just can’t keep her vampire fangs to herself.
“She’s an addict,” Mitra says. “It’s an addiction (for her), but it isn’t for everybody. For example, her husband can keep it at bay. He can do that one drink and put it down, but hers is a very, very hardcore battle. She won’t settle for the methadone equivalent of heroin.”
Yes, Claire is a vampire, and so is her husband (Luke Mably), but not their daughter.

What do you think? Hit or Miss? Are you going to watch? It does kinda sound like a cross between Desperate Housewives and Being Human … but maybe that will be a ratings winner?
