I'm a sucker for anything '80s so when I saw that Netflix was releasing a new television show called GLOW (Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling), a fictionalized version of the women’s wrestling circuit set in that awesome decade, I was instantly enamored and excited. So, like any person obsessed with Netflix, I melted into my worn out couch and pressed play on the whole season.



 Unfortunately, it didn’t take long for the concern to set in and after the first episode I realized I heavily disliked the main character, Ruth Wilder (Alison Brie), who was a very unlikable failing actress. The kind of character you cringe at because she reminds you of the most embarrassingly flawed parts of being human. Additionally, the story started out moving along slower than molasses and the amount of wrestling was not at the level I wanted. 

As I continued to watch the show, however, I enjoyed the character development of Ruth and the other women wrestlers.  Ruth pulled deep inside herself and became someone whom you empathized with and could understand, especially after her fake speech in front of a bunch of rich white people about how wrestling saved her life from crack (just watch the show, it’s hilarious).  The women not only developed as characters but united as a heartwarming team of underdogs, who bonded so deeply their periods synced up.   

As much as I loved the women on the show, I also loved the character of the director, who had the best jokes of the whole cast. Not everyone is going to love the term 'womb goof' (in reference to a miscarriage) but I couldn't help but laugh.  He had no filter and was an unapologetic asshole with a heart of gold.  

In the end, the final episode pulled out all the stops and gave me the crazy wrestling moves I so desired since episode 1, without tarnishing the 80’s glitz that first drew me in. There was, however, one complaint- there were too few episodes in the first season and now I have to wait an entire year to see more of the great women of the show.  I would give GLOW a one shot rating for delivering on not taking itself too seriously while also being full of fun, females, and fighting.

The review is the season is very interesting, it shows the writer also likes to watch it and enjoyed it. I have seen only a few episodes of last season and I liked it too. The story is just amazing.

I've watched this movie together with my friends. The movie is very funny and inspirational. It pushes you to achieve your passion in life. It teaches you to never stop until you reach your dreams. It is a good movie to watch for teenagers, I must say. The story is beyong amazing.

One of my most anticipated Netflix series this year. GLOW is definitely a bingeable type of television series that you just can't get enough of. This comedy-drama series is all about the real life journey of female professional wrestlers in the 80's. I really love everything about this show. I can't wait to see the second season of this show because apparently, Netflix renewed this series for a whole new season with 10 exciting episodes. What a great news, isn't it?

They still do this where I come from. It has always been more fascinating than MMA. I guess a lot of people now are objectifying men more than women. I think women are now viewed as more intelligent. But do you know who is better? The XXY chromosomes group. They are the hybrid. They can do things better than anyone else because they have the strengths of both gender and I guess the only weakness would have to be their looks sometimes because people still think they are freaks. But believe me they are the best. I think they are the only ones capable of making movies like this.

GLOW: Gorgeous Ladies Of Wrestling. I could say that this kind of story has something to do with women empowerment. For some people, they have the idea that women, girls, ladies or females should have the character of being prim and proper. Wrestling is a combat sport which usually plays by men. Primarily, it involves hardcore fighting that somehow not suitable for women. But in this story, we could reflect that when it comes to real life, women can also do what man can do. How ironic that women in this story were wrestling because of fame. Hope I could see more of your reviews with this Netflix series. Thank you for sharing your thoughts.
