Glitch, Netflix

06 Mar

This series on Netflix, has a storyline similar to The Returned, except the characters climb literally out of their tombes.

The problem is that the one who wrote the story forgot to give any of the characters any of that. The first 4 or 5 episodes, you won’t witness any variety in responses to the unusual circumstances. None. Emotionally, the characters are even more dead than the state of being you’d expect from somebody who is supposed to be dead.
You do see how the ones who are saddled with solving the problems, namely a police officer and a local doctor, seem to have some inner struggle with the happening, but that’s it. No feisty responses from them either. You just wanna slap ‘m so they do anything you’d expect under the circumstances.

And no, it’s not the acting. You can see how it’s not the actors who do it wrong. They simply haven’t really been given any dept. It does become a bit better after a few episodes, but still most of the responses aren’t in any way realistic. Even if the series continues, I won’t watch it. Rather the French version of The Returned. Far better storyline.
