Well done
25 June 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This show follows out-of-work actress Ruth as she enters the newly developed world of women's wrestling and it's a lot of fun! There wasn't as much action as some may have anticipated, but I think it's important to have a solid intro season for the characters of the show and it succeeded in that. The two main actresses both have spot-on comedic timing and had me giggling most of every episode and Marc Maron is perfectly cast. The show sums up the era well and properly captures the confusion and bewilderment about wrestling during that time. Hair, make-up, set dressing, and music is all great and takes me back in time. Each episode can stand on its own as well. The episodes are relatively short and don't drag on. Even if the follow-up seasons aren't good, the first season is a real achievement and I hope everyone involved is proud of that.
