So I came home and watched all the episodes in a row. :P

Like the series so far and I hope that they will produce more for a second season and further. :)

Added to my list, but haven't watched it yet. Probably watch at least two episodes later. It's nice to see something wrestling related get mainstream support though.

 

Watching now. 

 

Cool of them to throw a memorial to Chavo Sr. into the credits of the one episode too.

Finished. 

 

Really fun ensemble, the show was its best when the scenes included a large portion of the cast I thought. 

 

Kharma was a standout for sure!

Just finished. Nice quick watch. 

 

Actually kind of refreshing to have a series with shorter episodes.

 

Watching the actual pilot episode of Glow (1985) on youtube now, and it's bizarre seeing Ivory so young...also had no idea that Glow actually dropped f-bombs and shit. Pretty progressive for the time.

Definitely liked the first season and you definitely feel there is lots of room for lots of characters to delve into in a next season. I'm eager for more tbh.

Is there even going to be another season? I guess there could be, but it didn't really strike me as a given.

I see no reason why there wouldn't be. This season was just the birth of GLOW. They have plenty of places to go with it from here onward.

I heard it just glow in name only and won't fallow what really happen or have any of the real characterz

 

Yeah it's almost like it's "based" on something and not a documentary. 

 

idk I was expecting a bio pic

Yeah, I guess I just thought doing the show about the birth of Glow was the entire point. I didn't think it was supposed to be an ongoing thing...more of a one-off "this is how Glow came to be" type thing. Obviously, I'm in favor of more episodes...because it was a fun show.

 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

As for it not being based around real people...that's just for the sake of trademarks and stuff, I'm guessing. If they had actors portraying actual characters, then they would need to okay everything with all of those characters. Easier to just have a loose script about the birth of the company with similar characters or whatever. And from what I can tell after watching the real pilot episode of the 1985 Glow promotion...it seems very similar to me in every single other way. But that's just my opinion. Oh well...people need something to complain about, I guess.

Favorite character is definitely Marc Maron's character (Sam). Always been a fan of Marc Maron...but like Lunchbox said, he was practically born for this role. Favorite character of the actual wrestlers is probably Ruth, just because I enjoy the banter between her and Sam. And she has amusing reactions to things.

Yeah, Sam was my favourite character overall too but of the wrestlers it was Justine.

My GF and I binge watched this the other night. We both enjoyed it, and I thought the whole thing represented pro-wrestling pretty well. Surprisingly, Kharma has some acting chops. She really stood out, as did Mark Maron. He was amazing in his part, as dreadful as the character was. I just can't wait for season 2 now.

I've noticed there's a doc on GLOW from 2012 on Netflix, I'd imagine it just got added before the show's release. Gonna give it a watch and see how close the show was to the real thing. Loved the show btw, hope it comes back for a second season.

Thought the show was great. Marc Maron stole said show.
