DRAMA

GLITCH

8.30PM, ABC

From Match­box – the mak­ers of The Slap and The Devil’s Play­ground – Glitch has a solid pedi­gree, but this re­viewer is strug­gling. Think The Re­turned or Res­ur­rec­tion – peo­ple back from the dead is the premise. Yes, it’s spooky. Yes, it hinges on be­liev­ing the un­be­liev­able. And yes, it should be a slow- burn. But for mine, un­be­liev­able de­fies belief and it’s slow as op­posed to slow- burn.

LUKE NGUYEN’S UNITED KING­DOM

8PM, SBS

SCI-FI

ZOO

8.30PM, TDT

If best­selling au­thor James Pat­ter­son – he is ex­ec­u­tive pro­ducer of this se­ries based on his book – is your thing, you’re al­ready on to this show about a wave of vi­o­lent an­i­mal at­tacks across the globe. Tonight’s sec­ond ep sees the zo­ol­o­gist Jack­son Oz ( James Wolk) save his best mate Abra­ham ( Nonso Anozie) from a lion at­tack in Botswana. Chill­ingly for Oz, it strength­ens his the­ory an­i­mals are killing hu­mans purely for sport.
