‘GLOW’ finds its footing in Season 2 by ramping up emotions and stakes (TV review)

T

he Netflix series “GLOW” (Gorgeous Ladies Of Wrestling) is intriguing to me because of its ’80s pop look and feel. Apparently based on true events, the show centers on a down-and-out director and a cast of nobody actresses who are enlisted to create a ladies wrestling TV show. With just 10 half-hour episodes, we were able to burn through Season 1 fairly quickly when it premiered. It’s solid, with some pacing issues while the characters and stories are established, but overall it rates a 3/5.

With the characters already established, the writers are able to really focus on their stories, with many of them outside the ring.

The second season comes in strong, expanding on Season 1 in every way. With the characters already established, the writers are able to really focus on their stories, with many of them outside the ring. With solid performances, the emotions and stakes are ramped up by the season finale, leaving me excited for what Season 3 has to offer.

Check out a trailer for “GLOW” and if it piques your interest even a bit, give it a watch. Again, at just 10 half-hour episodes, it’s a quick watch that you just might enjoy.
