GLOW

Netflix’s newest original comedy, GLOW, is a ferociously funny look at the world of ladies wrestling in the ’80s. Mad Men and Community star Alison Brie plays Ruth, a down-and-out (and self-sabotaging) actress struggling to find her voice in a sea of rejection. Her big opportunity? Playing the heel in an uproarious new ladies wrestling show produced by a washed up film director played by with curmudgeon-y grace by Marc Maron. GLOW is a rare gem: an utterly entertaining romp with something actually meaty to say about life. GLOW approaches its material with heart, nuance, and joyous irreverence.
