Great 80s Wrestling Fun
30 June 2017 | by mercklenSee all my reviews

This is an excellent pilot and a very fun, well made show. The review calling it "Misogynist Trash" is completely irrational and nowhere close to accurate. This show is anything but misogynistic-the overwhelmingly female cast is diverse, intelligent, well defined, and wonderfully cast. It was written, produced and developed by intelligent female creators including Jenji Kohan of 'Weeds' and 'Orange Is The New Black' fame. Every one of the fantastic cast of female characters is empowered and emboldened by her foray into the strange carny world of professional wrestling. The show has a lot of fun Easter eggs and inside jokes for pro wrestling fans, but is just as enjoyable for viewers with no familiarity with the world of "wrasslin". GLOW is a dramedy set in the 1980s, and the period specific music, set design, and costumes are a real treat. This show is simply a joy on every level and manages to subvert and redefine some worn out tropes over the course of the season If you like fun shows about misunderstood outcasts coming together to achieve something bigger than themselves while becoming a ragtag family this is a must watch (the excellent music choices and era-specific 80s touches don't hurt either). It's very easy to fall for this show, and very difficult not to watch all 10 episodes in one or two sittings. Ignore the negative (and completely off-base) reviews and give GLOW a try- you won't be sorry.
