Have you ever wished your life was more like a video game? Glitch is an original comedy series that was Kickstarter funded, and created on a roughly 18K budget. It's about a game tester ("Glitch") who is going through a quarter life crisis (much like we all have) and begins experiencing old school and 8-bit glitches that mess with his life. Written by
Web-series are a new thing and there's a lot of stumbling around you know? But this is one of my favorite shows of all time even including regular TV. I don't even know if I can explain why exactly, but I love it. It's super geeky and at first seems nothing but reference after reference, but the story is really tight, the dialog is fun and witty, and the actors are all very good. You have to watch all six episodes I think to get why it's really as good as it is, but trust me it's worth it. I wholeheartedly recommend this show to anyone who likes video games, the 80s, reference- fests, or just good comedies. I have show it to my non-geek friends and even they love it and they miss like half the jokes! I hope this team keeps making stuff, and really goes somewhere.
Glitch is a video game tester who makes a wish that his life was more like a video game. But what happens instead is his life becomes prone to glitches. He is guided by "the old man" who appears as a different archetype in each episode, and he's a terrible guide. His friends are Samus and Wyatt, who don't know what's going on with Glitch but love him anyway. Samus is Samantha's nickname, and she's a girl but a real nerd. And Wyatt is like this zen guy, but also a huge geek. They're kind of this little trinity and it's really fun to watch them interact with each other. The supporting cast is also stellar and really shine at various moments.
Each episode is like 15-20 minutes, so they're full length, which I prefer in web series, not the like 5 minute thing. Cause the thing is, each episode is it's own story completely, like there's a different theme to each of the six (the pilot is just a pilot, but the rest are all wild and different from each other). But when you see them all at once, it's also a really good story. It's how TV should work.
It's a web-series, low budget and I think a first-time thing, so it has some flaws, but overall I love it, and I think even the flaws have their charms, haha. If you have the time, I recommend anyone reading this review actually make the commit to watch all six episodes, I swear you'll really feel rewarded if you do. I know it's lame to rate something a 10, but I did because this really hits the spot for me, and should be what web-series aspire to be, you know?
Good job you guys, and keep up the good work. I'd love to see more, both of Glitch and anything else you do!
