gatesJune 21, (THAINDIAN NEWS) One of the treats that ABC Network had planned for its viewers on Sunday was the much anticipated supernatural crime drama series “The Gates” which premiered in the channel last night. The show is among the five series that ABC is all set to premiere this week and it would not be misleading to say that the hype engulfing the series is also quite high among the viewers.

The manner in which the pilot episode of the new supernatural crime series unfolded was enough to stop the viewers from moving away from the television screens as it events of the episode managed to keep them completely engrossed.

Although, many felt that “The Gates” is an amalgamation of the hit ABC show “Desperate Housewives” and the nation’s obsession with vampire stories, it indeed was successful in holding the attention of the large number of viewers who had tuned in to watch the season premiere of the supernatural crime series.

Last night’s episode of “The Gates” introduced to the viewers to the protagonists of the show Nick Monahan played by Frank Grillo, his wife Sarah played by Marisol Nichols and their two kids. Life takes a completely different turn for the family when they shift to an upscale community called The Gates where Nick Monahan is recruited as the chief of police.

Although initially things seem absolutely normal, gradually the police chief and his wife realize that something is surely wrong with the neighbours as they are not what they seem to be.

However, critics of the series have reiterated that show has nothing new to offer to the viewers who have already seen enough of supernatural sagas.
