So good I've watched both seasons twice... In a week!!!!!
9 July 2018 | by beau-67970See all my reviews

After watching mediocre series, GLOW was a breath of fresh air. Every single character had texture and were so compelling to watch. I found myself invested in every one of them. I felt I was watching real people, as opposed to actors acting like real people and what made this possible was the writing AND the talent.

What really sold this series to me was the true depiction of the 1980s; the cinematography, the soundtrack, the casting (this is how people looked in the 80s) and the grit. Such an awesome production. Alison Brie, Betty Gilpin, Marc Maron and Chris Lowell really stood out for me but the whole cast were amazing. Kia Stevens is also a talent to look out for. Her voice alone stood out for me; it was soothing yet powerful. I digress...

The writing was so brilliantly done that I felt every nuance was necessary and added to the overall story. Whether it was a pause, an unspoken word, a sigh, every bit of it was crucial and made the script meaty and real. I can't stand a script that sounds pedestrian and forced, like it has been overly rehearsed. The GLOW writers have the conversational flow of script writing down pat. They deserve awards!!!

Another element that makes this series what it is, is the chemistry between cast members. I believe them; Ruth and Debbie's tension but care for one another, Sam and Bash's good cop, bad cop routine and the ladies ensemble as a whole. There's drama, suspense, COMEDY and great music! A winning combination.

It's so good I've watched both seasons twice. Bring on season 3!
