Trivia

The series was shot on several locations in Los Angeles; mainly in the San Fernando Valley. Chavo's Boxing Gym, which is GLOW's training grounds, was a combination of two locations: the interior was a studio set while the exterior was the rear of the San Fernando Masonic Lodge. The Pink Motel in Sun Valley was used as a stand-in for The Dusty Spur Motel, GLOW's sleeping quarters. Other notable locations include the Mayan Theater and the Hollywood Palladium. See more »

Goofs

There have been many moments during shows and matches in the series where kayfabe (or the protection of the wrestling business) was broken. While it exists in-name-only nowadays, back in the 1980s, it was still taken very seriously. See more »

Crazy Credits

The first episode of each season is the only one to show the opening credits at the beginning of the show, plus it plays Scandal's "The Warrior". Every other episode in a season is a cold opening with the opening credits at the end. See more »

An instant '80's' classic made better through diverse casting and taboo breaking story lines!
27 June 2017 | by francesca-80418See all my reviews

I adored it! I watched it twice through straight away. Take every lighthearted, cult 80's film from your youth and roll them into one, then inject the diverse casting and perspectives that all of those films were sorely missing, sprinkle on some amazing 80's fashion and music, serve with some fearless subject matter (storylines covering miscarriage and abortion, misogyny, anxiety. Racism and infidelity) and you get GLOW! What cinema in the 80's SHOULD have looked like. Just like Dirty Dancing, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Back to the Future and The Breakfast Club, this show is going to be one that I watch again and again....and again. Something that I put on when life gets stressful and I just need to disappear into my kitsch 80's fantasy for a while. The episodes are short but impactful, the dialogue is fun and full of humour, after watching it you and your friends will just want to dress up like a wrestlers and start practising moves on each other! An all round hit for me, 10/10!
