THE GATES IS BACK

Written by

So to speak. “After these long, lonely months without a Columbia soap opera,” writes CTV producer totally independent operator Katie Simon, “we decided it was time for a change. Prepare yourself for Exclusion Suite, Columbia’s SECOND original soap opera, coming this January to an internet connection near you.” Get involved in what’s sure to be a classic piece of Columbiana by auditioning “Sunday 12/2 and Monday 12/3 from 7:30 to 9:30pm at a location TBD.”

Of course you’ll never live it down, and our lives have enough real awkwardness as it is–y’know, without the fake, CTV-produced awkwardness that’ll end up on YouTube and turn you into a laughingstock on IvyGate. But in Bwog’s opinion, this is but a pitifully small price to pay for immortality.

But wait: the real, CTV-produced “Gates” is also coming back this Spring, says director Davide Barillari! Word has it that Season 2 of won’t disappoint fans of college-budget, student-produced camp. CAVA, coke, drunken violence, endearingly cheap, on-location shots…been there, done that. An Afghan opium ring operating out of the archeology department? Now you’re talkin’! We aren’t ones for wild speculation, but we’re anticipating plotlines involving drugs, awkward romance, angst, booze, an asshole CC professor…and also sperm banks, genetic diseases, gang warfare, an intractable moral dilemma or two, and the discovery of chilling secrets buried deep in the bowels of Low Library. We can hardly wait.

  1. Which  

    fraternity house is that? Looks to me like AEPi, which as we know Brett Robbins is a brother of. Also, is that Spec Sports Editor Jon Tayler among the observers? Must be covering the fight.

  2. Sam  

    Just to clarify, Exclusion Suite has no connection to CTV or The Gates, beyond the bit of acting and music I contributed to the Gates and Katie's oddly intense fandom.

  3. who is  

    in the cast besides monica quaintence and alice hu? in other words, who is the hot brunette in red in that picture?

  4. oh no  

    ahhh lord help us!! this show is hysterically badly acted and scripted, although for college kids not bad at all actually. Props to CTV for making it, kind of amusing, just wish they didn't take themselves so seriously!

    check out a preview here:

  5. Guys...  

    I heard that at Into the Woods, they are going blow up a Model-T ON STAGE. I don't know about you, but that's something I want to go and see.

  6. Crap  

    The show is bad, with that monica girl, who is kinda ugly, the show becomes unwatchable

  7. Katie  

    IS an artistic genius.

  8. blatant plug  

    what about scent of youth? that show is da buttaz, and is also available on youtube.
