I just realized, I LOVE paranormal. I do. I’m sorry. I read all the Twilight books (again, I’m sorry). I love watching The Gates on TV (okay, most of the time I forget it’s on and have to play catch up on Hulu). The Gates is a new show on channel 5 on Sunday nights. It’s a little like Twilight meets Desperate Housewives meets CSI. Paranormal drama with each episode. Gotta love it!
I like The Gates. I do. There’s a whole lot of paranormal going on. You’ve got your regulars—vampires, werewolves--BUT there is also witches and succubus type beings (female demons who get their energy from killing men). Me likes this!
I had just finished catching up on episodes I had missed when I turned to my husband and said, “Boy, if I had to pick between being a witch or a vampire or a werewolf, I think . . . I think I would pick witch first, followed by vampire, because I don’t think being a werewolf would be fun at all—except I would get a new wardrobe all the time (shredded clothing).”
His reply, “Go with vampire. You’ve already got witch down.”
Ahhh, he knows me!!
So I asked him, “If you had to pick what would you choose?”
“I’m pretty sure if I got to be anything, it would be victim.”
That made me laugh. I could totally see that—but if I were a vampire, I could bring him back and make him my vampire companion who would forever be bonded to me . . . WAH,HA,HA,HA!!! (Wait a minute, we have an eternal marriage we are bonded forever. Hmmm . . . there has to be a perk here somewhere . . . could he be my slave? Yeah, I like that. I will give him immortality and he will be in charge of washing dishes and laundry for FOREVER . . . WAH, HA,HA!!!)
All that dark paranormal stuff intrigues me. (Don’t get me wrong, I like holy stuff too).
It’s all fun. NO!! I don’t believe in witches or werewolves and I don’t care to be on an Edward or a Jacob team , I just like the concept of something different. In the aspect of creativity, maybe there isn’t much being done with it that hasn’t already been tried, but I am willing to give The Gates a go. It’s winning me over—especially with the concept of a human’s (police chief and his family) living right in the mix of all this. You know at some point, one of these creatures is going to get them. But which one? I must keep watching.
Vampires and werewolves . . . throw in the witches and succubus’ and you’ve got me at hello.
