1 | For Season 2, does Glow really need to figure out if Debbie’s husband is a decent guy who occasionally says/does the wrong thing or an unbelievably insensitive, clueless (and, in the finale, borderline cartoonish) jerk?

The next big hurdle will be getting $5 million set aside in the state’s budget to fund the credit.

"It was beauty killed the beast."
The Empire State Building was opened on May 1st 1931. President Hoover pushed a button in the White House in DC and the lights to the tower in NYC flicked on for the first time.
