    GLOW is an American comedy-drama television series created by Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch. The series revolves around a fictionalization of the characters and gimmicks of the 1980s syndicated women's professional wrestling circuit, the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling (or GLOW) originally created by David McLane. The first season consists of 10 episodes and was released via Netflix on June 23, 2017.
    This may be the best out-and-out comedy Netflix has produced. Kimmy Schmidt couldn't sustain the novelty of the first season.
    Great soundtrack, costumes, lots of (not just gorgeous) women (a surprising amount of nudity) and our own Kate Nash in a recurring role. OITNB's Jenji Kohan is an exec prod and wrote episode 6. The creators were writers on OITNB and Nurse Jackie.

    I binge-watched this over 2 days and found it quite entertaining, I also liked how they managed to mesh a bit of the mid 80s vibe with some bits of 70s stuff here and there, which back then was very much the case, depending on how "advanced" the city/region you used to live in was. I mean it wasn't like: end of the 70s.... -BOOM- everyone's wearing mesh gloves and painting themselves in neon colors, it was much more gradual than that, but I knew it was sorta "inspired" by the 80s anyway. LOL at that pregnancy test!

    Thank god I wasn't the only one that noticed. Stranger Things was also adept at that, but that was set in the early 80s. There's still people that have kept their perm from 30 years ago, its never gonna be completely one decades style in a decade.

    I was a bit surprised to see "F**k Nixon" grafitti still on a toilet door ten years after Watergate.
