    GLOW (Season 1)



    A show that opens with Scandal's "The Warrior" and closes out with Pat Benatar's "Invincible" is all right with me.

    This show is quite good. Allison Brie and Marc Maron are the standouts, but it's a deep female-driven ensemble. Reminiscent of Orange is the New Black in some respects, but a lot more fun. It's got elements of the classic underdog story, but what's really interesting is how it tackles the way in which stereotypes are limiting for the individual, and yet so intoxicating for humans en masse. The show never condescends to its low-brow subject matter. On the contrary, it shows great affection for it, and actually makes professional wrestling seem kind of fun.
