Trivia

When the girls go to the wrestling event, professional wrestlers Christopher Daniels and Frankie Kazarian make an appearance wrestling each other. They are currently signed with Ring of Honor (ROH) as a tag-team called The Addiction. Also interesting to note, the building they are wrestling in is the American Legion Post #308 in Reseda, CA which is the same building that Pro Wrestling Guerrila (PWG) holds events in. 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 »

Watched the real thing and this is just as fascinating and fun
30 June 2018 | by spatulachicSee all my reviews

I was about 10 or 11 when the original GLOW was on and I loved it. It was an hour of irreverent and terrible comedy surrounded by women doing something I'd only seen men do - wrestle. Even with the terrible acting and costumes and the dash of racism, i felt empowered.

This series had me hooked from the beginning. As much as I worried about Alison Brie being miscast, she proved from the start that she was born for this show. Every actress and character brings something to the table, although with only 8 episodes each season, we won't get as much character development as we should with the minor characters. Marc Maron brings a brilliance i never knew he was capable of bringing (I say this as a fan of his.). Once you see these characters in action, you root for them. They're the underdogs of their own story and they're fabulous.

Part of my love for this show is the nostalgia but most of it stems for being a well-written, well-acted, engrossing show. This is one of Netflix's underrated gems.
