Bite Club: A TV Show To Rival The WSL’s Shark Drama
Fleeting shark encounters intertwined with fabricated coastal drama!
How would you describe the WSL to a non-surfer? Possibly as a ‘fabricated drama intertwined with occasional shark terror’, a unquestionably unique corner of the entertainment market which the WSL previously had a stronghold on.
But now, it’s come to our attention that there’s a newcomer to this market, an Australian TV show called ‘Bite Club’.
“The show centres around a group of shark attack survivors, named the “Bite Club”, who are being targeted by a serial killer.” The Wikipedia page reads about the upcoming series.
Australian’s love crime, and the only thing we love more than crime drama, is people getting nibbled off the coastline. Bite Club is simply a conflation of these two favourite pastimes filmed along Sydney’s idyllic Northern Beaches.
Typically, when you pine for shark scares and semi-manufactured scenarios you’ll whip open the WSL app and check when the next day’s action is scheduled. Now, you’ll no longer need to wait around for swells and tides to align, you can just tune in every single Wednesday for what’s shaping up as another exceedingly shithouse installment of Aus television.
We Australian’s aren’t exactly blessed with thought provoking, nor even mildly entertaining television, and now we’re being served up this half-baked bait; yeah, we’ve got the Bachelor and First Dates – the pinnacle’s of reality television – but when it comes to truly scripted affairs we have little content of genuine interest.
And while our Netflix is VPN restricted and consequently quality starved, Bite Club appears to be a stark reminder of what life was like before online streaming – in short, fucked.
Bite Club’s opener kicks off on Wednesday on Channel 9, so tune in quick before it’s inevitably demoted to a lesser timeslot before being taken off air altogether in a few month’s time.
Will you, like me, be boycotting the WSL to dive head first into this thrilling Australian TV drama?
And who are you betting on being the serial killer? The main detective? A psychologically affected family member? Or perhaps a mentally impaired dentist who still believes in the tooth fairy?!
