Glitch: Australian paranormal TV series struggles to bring its undead to life - The Guardian
I’m your typical Aussie couch potato. My plate is full with a nine-to-five square-meal day job, followed by a seven-to-twelve TV binge session. Needless to say, my existence is mostly ordinary.
Yet American Horror Story’s washed-up, fame-hungry amputee who runs a freak show in Jupiter, Florida is someone I can relate to. As is True Blood’s feisty teen vampire struggling to abstain from draining her mortal boyfriend’s veins. Not to mention the mobster devoted to “waste management” in The Sopranos, Orange is the New Black’s lesbian drug mule and Mad Men’s alcoholic creative director crackerjack raised in a whorehouse who goes on to steal his dead army buddy’s identity.
Unfortunately for ABC’s new six-part series Glitch, Senior Constable James Hayes and the clan of undead that turn his humdrum country town upside down don’t resonate. They don’t provide me with the escape that I’m yearning for. Both the mortals and the corpses in Glitch can be drop-dead boring. And it’s a shame, given Glitch’s slick treatment, stunning scenery and gothic atmosphere.
Glitch begins when Hayes (Patrick Brammell) discovers five bewildered mud-clad people wandering around a moonlit graveyard, having just clawed their way out of their graves. With his partner in cadaver-hiding crime, Dr Elishia Glass, in tow, he does his best to keep the town’s undead influx under wraps.
Little do the two realise that the hundred-year-dead town mayor has gone rogue. And then there’s that mysterious and volatile man with the sinister glare on the loose.
The series’ clincher is that one of the undead is Hayes’s wife Kate (Emma Booth); her life claimed by breast cancer two years earlier. Hayes has moved on and impregnated Kate’s best friend Sarah (Emily Barclay). Flashbacks of an unfaithful Don Draper returning to his fifties nuclear family at the conclusion of Mad Men’s pilot immediately spring to mind. However, while Draper’s dalliance with his mistress...Source: www.theguardian.com
