Plain Ketchup: The Gates

It’s a soap opera about a town full of vampires and werewolves.

If you’re going to do that, you either have to:

  • have silly fun,
  • do a really slow build into it ,starting wth the soap opera and teasing the weird stuff in to make it seem real, or
  • be damn emotionally accurate, so real about human beings that the biting types are either a context to reflect on humanity, or a clear allegory

This ain’t none of that.

But hey, The Gates has high schoolers who can invent a single-write lie detector that actually works, and who trust it works without rigorous testing.

sigh.

yuck yuck yuck
