Wait... why would anyone complain about Alison Brie in a wrestling outfit?

Some people are just plain miserable.

So, to recap why this will probably be awesome for those still on the fence:

 

- only 10 episodes

 

- Alison Brie as Ruth, an out-of-work actress who finds one last chance to live out her dreams in the form of a weekly series about female wrestlers

 

- Marc Maron will play Sam Sylvia, a washed-up Hollywood director who has a very complicated history with women — and now must lead 14 of them on the journey to wrestling stardom

So, the first season is out now. I just watched the first episode and it is fantastic. Great detail and paying hommage so far. Anyone else already seen it or still planning to do so?

Looks tremendous. I've just watched the first episode so far, but I definitely plan on seeing the rest of it soon. Gotta say - the costumes, the clothing, the songs selection, and just the atmosphere in general is terrific.

Plus, I mean... I'm only one episode in, and Alison Brie has already been naked like three times. So there's certainly that.

Oh. And, if the pilot is any indication, sleazy Maron should be an absolute blast.

My review for Paste: https://www.pastemag...d-pro-wres.html

It's really, really good.

Episode 2 was even better than the first. The scene with Maron directing the "miscarriage kick" angle was fantastic. Couldn't stop cracking up. Maron stole the show, but the girls' reactions put it over the fucking top.

Only two eps in, but it's aces so far.

The quick-clip promos at the end of episode 3 were fiyah. It's some of that old Saturday Night's Main Event shit. Camp. Cheese. Pro 'rasslin in its purest form.

Ethel & Edna, the Beat Down Biddies, are money acts. There's just no convincing me otherwise.

:lol: @ the drug-dispensing Rocky 4 robot. Classic.

 

I'm digging this show wayyy more than I'd expected.

I absolutely loved GLOW... so so so so good. Binged it this morning and afternoon. We weren't planning on it but we got hooked in.

 

It is so good, filled to the brim with one liners and tightly wound narratives.  It gets wrestling, even when it kind of pokes fun and critiques it, and that was what where it could have really disappointment.

 

It is one of hose wrestling things that I can enjoy equally with non-wrestling fans I enjoy having those in my life.

Just finished watching the entire season, and loved it

Hopefully Netflix is planning on a 2nd

Yes. Exactly. I'm watching it with two friends that totally don't care one way or another about actual wrestling, but they're eating this up right here with me.

I'm in the same boat today. Caught the first episode, stepped away to do some things around the house, rain started pouring down, and so we dove right back into the show. 5 episodes deep as we speak. It's easy viewing, for sure.

Speaking of episode 5 - that scene where Debbie attends her first live wrestling match and finally "gets it" is wonderful. That moment is magic.

Watched the whole season in one sitting last night with my girlfriend. She enjoyed it quite a bit, I thought it was too hokey. Which was maybe the point, but it just embarrassed me for them in many of the scenes with Alison Brie. The fabricated drama & over-the-top acting I think was too much for me.

Brie's Soviet Russia shtick is supreme. Lana and Handsome Rusev should straight up lift some of those lines. Good stuff.

Any show that allows you to shout "Iran number one" at the TV as a response to a question asked is a win in my book.

I'm halfway through the series, and while this isn't quite as good as some of Netflix's best series (Stranger Things, One Day at a Time, Grace and Frankie, etc.), it's still pretty damn good. Hope it doesn't get cancelled after 2-3 seasons.
