Marc Maron is very good at playing a sleazy horny cokehead

No seriously, he's great in this. And all the Ladies are killing it. I grew up on 80s wrestling so this is my jam.

I'm on episode 5 and loving it but I gotta ask... when does the actual wrestling start? Season 2? :v:

The "THIS IS A SOAP OPERA" moment in episode 5 was brilliant.

e: on episode 8, and I want to amend my previous statement: Sheila and Justine are both the best. READY STEADY GO

I know, I felt like a complete idiot but I was grinning like one.

On ep 6 or 7 right now, and Sheila the She-Wolf is the greatest.

Her bringing the "coven" of Goths to the show really gave me the 80s feels.

Also, Marc Maron is totally playing Sam as "What if Stan Lee got into women's wrestling/trashy horror films instead of comic-books?". He would be perfect for a Stan Lee biopic or comedy mini-series.

Holy poo poo, you're right. gently caress!

Just finished the last episode and it was perfect in every way. Goddamn waiting a year or so for more of this!

Youtube has tons of old GLOW matches, they're pretty fun to watch to see where they took inspiration/characters from.

It's also why there's an abortion plot, a divorce plot, and what's essentially a trans coming-out plot (Sheila's otherkin story.) The show's about feminism in the 80's.

I agree but I would add that the show is also often about the 80s themselves, mostly for humor but also for capturing a certain innocence about sleaze and excess.

It's also got a lot of "working class hero" in the vein of Rocky and The Wrestler.

It felt like Cherry was supposed to have an ever larger role than she already does but that a lot of it ended up on the cutting room floor. I suspect it got pushed to season 2 since they left in all the setup stuff (her past with Sam, her pilot, etc)

I've no idea where but I have 100% heard that "Porn you can watch with your kids" line before, a long time ago. Probably in some stand-up routine?
