Continuing down the retro road of the 1980’s, Netflix serves up some Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling in their fresh new series, GLOW. I’m loving so much attention being paid to women dominated series. About time. Certainly GLOW feeds us all the components needed for a compelling and absurd comedy while serving up what it felt like to be a woman breaking into acting during the Reagan era. For me personally I don’t connect with these 80’s flashbacks. I get GLOW and think it’s well-done. It just doesn’t move me nor does it make me laugh out loud or compel me to keep binging. Similar reaction to Stranger Things. I know I’m in the minority. Certainly that time period was good to me. For some reason I’ll probably be happier when they start retro-ing the 90’s. 3 out of 5 for GLOW. If you’re a fan of the decade, you’ll probably want to give this a try.
