Glitch is an Australian mystery-drama TV series and it is about a small town where things turn upside down for a cop and other people as six deceased people suddenly rise back one fateful night.
The story/premise intrigued me from the start. You feel just as confused as the people in the show. How did they come back? Why are they back? Is it something supernatural? Or is it science related? All these questions and more raise through your head in the first episode and becomes the framework of the series experience.
Now, there is a good amount of characters in it, but they don't get an equal amount of development, nor are they all interesting or well acted. But the ones that are interesting certainly keep the intrigue level high enough that you want to know more and want them to solve this mystery and get answers.
The story creates interesting scenarios and makes you wonder what would you do if you were thrown in this situation. And like I said earlier, while some characters aren't that interesting, others are, and their storylines definitely keep you hooked. My favorite, in particular, was of Patrick Fitzgerald. His history made for some cool plot elements.
The pacing isn't perfect, and it is slow paced most of the times, but it rarely gets boring. The only times I really got bored was during the more lovey-dovey stuff, which when coupled with the bigger mystery at hand just didn't seem interesting to me.
Currently, there is only one season out (the second will arrive this year) with a total of six episodes, so it's a short series and an easy one to try I would say. Really looking forward to the second season and seeing where it all leads to. A good enough series.
