A tv show review by: Lee Sonogan
(2017) 1H/Comedy, Drama, Sport (Season 1)
An overall description of the show is a look at the personal and professional lives of a group of women who perform for a wrestling organization in Los Angeles. All the actresses were trained to wrestle by Chavo Guerrero, Jr. This is the second Netflix Original Series from Jenji Kohan. You will feel and see the 80’s feel watching this show. It’s weird/dark and is mostly funny.
Before being cast as Carmen Wade on GLOW, Britney Young was the personal assistant to Rachel Bloom and Aline Brosh-McKenna on the CW series Crazy-Ex Girlfriend on which she also guest-starred. Each of the other actresses has starred in well-known movies you may have heard of. Indy wrestlers from America make interesting cameos in the show.
This show makes professional wrestling more relevant, I like that. Deep at the core of the show, it’s all wrestling terms and slang done in an impressive way. GLOW was praised by critics upon its release; receiving a 96% approval rating from review aggregation site Rotten Tomatoes, the site’s consensus being “With spot-on 1980s period detail, knockout writing, and a killer cast, GLOW shines brightly,”. The ending is the last fight on their second show and it is certainly something. I recommend this to any wrestling fan and people who like the eighties feel.
PS – I am actually interested where they go with it if it has a second season in the future. Plus do not be sceptical about this show. It has interests for a lot of people.
