    G.L.O.W.

    Just a reminder for those following Netflix's wrestling show about the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling, that series 2 debuts at the end of June.

    I'm really excited to see this come back! I had a great time with the first season.

    I also watched the pilot of the actual series a while back and found it both hilarious and strangely compelling. If I ever get the time I'd be very interested in checking out the whole original product, it's certainly unique as hell!

    This is nearly here. With so much of the first season focusing on learning to wrestle and finding a character, it's going to be interesting to see how the show evolves this year.

    I'm super excited for this! Probably my favourite thing I watched last year, not least for the whole wrestling side of things but I felt like the entire program was handled excellent. The abortion episode, and everything around that, was one of the more powerful bits of TV I think I've ever seen.

    Kia Stevens (Awesome Kong, Kharma) just shared a trailer on her instagram/Twitter and the next season looks a lot of fun.

    Did you see the video they did to Flashdance to announce the date?

    Season 2 has dropped. Watched the first couple of episodes. Really good stuff so far.

    Binged it through in 2 days, thought it was even better than the first season! Great show, wish there was more already!

    Haven't gotten around to it as yet what with my wrestling catch-up (I was SO FAR behind) and little bits of World Cup here and there, but I'm pretty hyped for it nonetheless. Will probably clear through it in a couple of days once I get going.

    FINALLY gotten around to this. Haven't binge-watched it but started and definitely intrigued by how it's set up.

    As in you've started at the beginning of the series? I think you'll find a lot to like, especially as it goes on. Big fan of the show.

    Yeah, started at the beginning of series 2. Now getting into it a lot more. The whole accidental heel turn and Ruth/Zoya saving the day was pretty fun.

    Liked the second season even more, lots of fun stuff and clearly very savvy to the wrestling business without being inaccessible to non-fans.

    Very nearly finished this now. Once you get into it they fly by. Loved the Muppets take Manhattan reference.

    I heard there's already a third series of this confirmed, which is cool. I wonder how long they are going to run this for - there's around four series on TV so maybe it could run for five seasons, if you factor in that it started earlier and could also have a few episodes dealing with the revival/legacy of G.L.O.W.?

    Be cool if somewhere in there was a little nod to Ivory ending up as one of the most important women in wrestling during the Attitude boom.

    5 seasons sounds about right, though if they have steam for more I won't say no!

    Particularly impressed with Awesome Kong's performance on the show, she's as good as just about any of the professional actors. Never would have guessed it but I hope she gets more work based on how well she's done, particularly since I don't think she wrestles much any more.
