:D thanks!

imo I enjoyed the early episodes but I felt like the show improved expontentially once Ruth found her character; it's like you know it's coming but it takes a while to get there.

I really love the casting of Brodus Clay & Carlito as Macchu Picchu's brothers, that whole backyard training scene + montage was terrific

This was really good. Only three episodes left to watch. For some reason I felt like this had a very Cheers-y vibe. Not just because Alison Brie does an extended Diane Chambers impression for the first half. Just something about the lovable loser-iness of it. Also Stacey and Dawn are clearly Cliff and Norm.

I've yet to really get into this, partially because I watched the documentary first and it was so good. Watching the first episode of this felt like an inferior product, but I'm probably wrong

Unchanging Window (Ross), Friday, 30 June 2017 21:10 (one year ago) Permalink

it's heavily fictionalized, so the real story is only the barest of a framework for the netflix show

it's almost better if you just watch it as fiction. kinda like orange is the new black: that had very little to do with the actual story of the actual woman who was in prison, and was just a jumping off point for all kinds of made up lols

This show has renewed my faith in Alison Brie bc I really liked her but I think her characters in Mad Men and Community were kinda underwritten so it wasn't clear how talented she really was but, maybe bc it's not made by men, in GLOW she's extraordinary & undeniable.

I am not ashamed to say that I teared up when they played "Invincible" in the final ep <3

- I love how Debbie is so beaten down & sad in all the non-wrestling scenes but in the ring she radiates strength & confidence & beauty

- same with Ruth, she's weird & awkward & detached & doesnt fit anywhere and carries herself like a middle-schooler and then turns into this freaking POWER-BEACON as Zoya

- i love how the emotional beats of the story are economical, the actors sell the moments so well but nothing is overdone or melodramatic...it all feels earned & human

goddamn i love this show

Yoni Loves Chocha (VegemiteGrrl), Saturday, 1 July 2017 06:32 (one year ago) Permalink

Easily the best TV of the year so far. Alison Brie is phenomenal but it's a great ensemble and it manages to be uplifting without being mawkish. I Think VG says it better, though.

i wasn't sold on this until the sudden leap into fantasy at the end of ep one, but then i liked it enough that i watched it all in a week, which is more television than i watch in most months

highlight for me was maron's sad esprit d'escalier at his typewriter at the open of the third episode. at leasy humor-wise. a lot of the debbie-ruth interactions were just heartbreaking. betty gilpin phenomenally good, the scene at the wrestling match where her facial expression transitions from 'not feeling this' to 'gets it' to 'thirsty' just amazing

something about the show's register that bugged me. i kept expecting scenes to resolve with 'character embarrasses themselves' as the joke. then found their actions implausibly succeeding. particularly in the penultimate episode, the whole plot of that v wackety-schmackety-doo.

Started out very A League of their GLOWn. (I assume that's been invoked upthread?) but we were quickly sold, and I was surprised at both how much I liked or empathized with characters I thought I might hate (like the James Spader yuppie guy) and how impressed I was by the quality of the acting across the board.

If I were Netflix, I would start green-lighting as many shows set in the '80s as possible.

Good, otm writeup by Nussbaum: http://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2017/07/03/the-glitzy-verve-of-glow-and-claws

Arguments break out immediately, and they continue to roll through the show, even as we get the requisite training montages and behind-the-scenes drama: Is it O.K. to act out a crass stereotype if it makes you a star? How about if you get paid a ton? What if your performance is genuinely funny? Is it subversive—or cathartic, or even therapeutic—to expose the ugliest ways people see you? Or is that just an excuse you make because it’s better than being ignored?

Unlike other eighties-pastiche series, such as “Red Oaks” and even the terrific “Stranger Things,” “glow” feels like it’s set in the actual eighties, not a dream board of eighties movies

Binged all 10 eps in one sitting. LOVED IT! Much of what I loved has already been covered better in the thread, but I think maybe the most genius moment was Sam finding out 'Mothers and Lovers' had already been made with a bigger budget.

Listen to my homeboy Fantano (D-40), Sunday, 2 July 2017 02:08 (one year ago) Permalink

I thought this show would be better, cuz he milieu is so fascinating and the characters are interesting and has good actors but it's just not working for me. I feel like it started to look at what makes wrestling interesting but then drops it...I feel like these characters probably would have been much more interested in wrestling than is depicted, like, they were passionate about it!

Also the lead character feels like a one dimensional joke on "serious actress" and not in a way that's funny or interesting. Also reminds me too much of piper from oitnb

Listen to my homeboy Fantano (D-40), Sunday, 2 July 2017 02:12 (one year ago) Permalink

The 80s-ness didn't seem overdone imo. Since at least half the show took place in a non-descript gray gym or in old-ass motel rooms, there wasn't a whole lot of period-specific scenery to deal with. (I thought Stranger Things was really good at this as well.)

Somebody wrote a thing at Pitchfork the other day about the music selections and how unique they were, and I gotta call bullshit on that. I LOVE most of the music that was used, but let's not pretend that Howard Jones and Journey took a whole lot of thought.

GLOW is mostly about women figuring out who they are .. and wrestling

i think that you kinda have to be down with the first part to be able to enjoy the show

also, i'm not saying everyone has to like the show but imo it's well made & well written. any mediocrity is maybe viewer's own baggage rather than a failing of the show

Yoni Loves Chocha (VegemiteGrrl), Sunday, 2 July 2017 02:34 (one year ago) Permalink

Agree. I think if you just want to watch a bunch of characters thrown together, given almost no depth, you should probably be watching actual wrestling.

As someone who listens to Maron talk three hours a week, every week, I actually found myself using him as an anchor while I focused on learning about everyone else. There was a moment when I thought they were going to give characters flashbacks a la Orange Is The New Black, but it was really just Sheila doing the wolf thing. Maybe flashbacks help, maybe they don't. I feel like I know OITNB characters better than I do these women, but maybe learning about them more organically is okay.

if you come in wanting some deep exploration wrestling & wall to wall dope moves you will be disappointed is all i'm saying

There is no relationship yet. They're a tiny operation that doesn't even get on television for the first time until the last sequence of the last episode, and even then it's only on a small cable channel between two strange shows.

Οὖτις, Sunday, 2 July 2017 05:39 (one year ago) Permalink

I didn't watch GLOW as a kid, but I thought the doc a few years ago was neat and I like Maron and Alison Brie and came to really like everyone else in it. Plus, the episodes are short, so you don't have much to lose.

Ⓓⓡ. (Johnny Fever), Sunday, 2 July 2017 05:51 (one year ago) Permalink

I wanted to like this far more than I actually did. The acting is pretty good (Kate Nash excepted, who is dreadful) but every single plot beat is telegraphed way in advance so after 10 minutes you can tell exactly what the cliffhanger will be.

Maron and Brie are the standouts (and have a totally unresolved sexual tension in the one real surprise the series delivered, not putting them together at the end) and have some great lines.

As stated above, the 80s feels totally thrown at it (for example this is
summer 85 - Back To The Future has just been released - and Hair Metal didn't really become a thing until the autumn of 86 with the Bon Jovi reference specifically a year out; alternatively, the aerobics craze started in gyms in the late 70s - the ONJ single Physical was 81 and Jane Fonda at home was 82, both of them felt like death knells and it was gone in 83) which chimes with the music supervisor's quote above.

It was an entertaining enough dramedy and I'll watch the next season, but it's very much a tier 2 Netflix commission.

in the one real surprise the series delivered, not putting them together at the end

Maybe I'm a dummy and didn't pick up on some clues, but the real surprise of the series was when Sam finds out [redacted] is [redacted].

Sam and Ruth having an adult relationship that doesn't involve sex is the kind of thing that should happen in tv more imo.

Ⓓⓡ. (Johnny Fever), Sunday, 2 July 2017 13:46 (one year ago) Permalink

Yes, and that's why it was surprising they went that way with Sam & Ruth.

Sam the [redacted] is completely trope-tastic and a mainstay of teen fiction. Telegraphed from the episode where [redacted] shows in-depth knowledge of his film history, but also by "how old are you?" in ep 1 and the fact that they're the only one that has a relationship outside of the main cast.

Mud... Jam... Failure... (aldo), Sunday, 2 July 2017 13:54 (one year ago) Permalink

Mulder & Scully, Don & Joan, Leslie & Ron...these are all the most compelling type of tv relationship, so I'm looking forward to Sam & Ruth continuing the legacy.

When I think through these seasons, though, and try to settle on a favorite MOMENT from the whole thing it comes down to: Bash just before he's going to be a ringside announcer for the first time (from S1E10). He's been waiting his whole damn life to do this and it's happening, finally.

The Harsh Tutelage of Michael McDonald (Raymond Cummings), Wednesday, 4 July 2018 00:39 (eleven months ago) Permalink

Bash’s legit delight during every minute of the battle royale was one of my favorite things. The things they do to show you how much he loves wrestling really pay off.

And Raymond otm: while i find the stories are a little bit underwritten at times, the show’s love for the characters is unmistakeable and I dunno if I would trade that. It feels more, idk, nourishing? I hate that word but that’s what popped into my head.

Squeaky Fromage (VegemiteGrrl), Wednesday, 4 July 2018 04:09 (eleven months ago) Permalink

This show is like the decent stuff in OITNB (multi ethnic ensemble female cast) x 10 and w out any of that show’s egregious baggage, just really enjoyable and occasionally genuinely moving. Kia tearing up after those “get a job” chants was too real.

So much love for this series. An underlying theme that culminated in the final show was how much better they got a selling the moves in the ring, culminating in Liberty Belle vs the Lumberjackson. I’m not sure if that was intentional or just as a result of the actors getting better at it going through the series but it seem right nonetheless.

Avoided the thread til now, and hey it got weird. Ok anyway, just finished S2. Goddamned great show. All the more for being a program where empathy is extended to every single character in the cast, and there are zero villains (unless we count Glen and the TV exec), which is a refreshing change of pace.

And it would seem that the wrestling show within a show in which a multicultural, multiethnic cast was put together for cynical and exploitative reasons has allowed for this show to have such a cast in a way that’s completely positive and warm and open and beautiful.

Betty Gilpin remains one of the best at reaction shots that I’ve ever seen, one of my biggest laughs this season was during the radio show scene, with her extremely subtle reaction to when Brittanica said, “we’d marry all our fans if we could!” And that argument scene in the hospital, yeah that shit was raw. That was incredible.

Another big lol was the Griffith Park Observatory as the fortress where Liberty Belle’s daughter was being held captive.

finished season 2 last night. shoulda seen it coming but I still got a little choked up when Ruth finds out that she gets to fly in and take the bouquet. Allison Brie is so great and it's just a terrific character, a borderline-annoying overachiever who is lovable nonetheless. I also really enjoyed the unexpected way they handled her incipient love triangle with Russell and Sam. maybe her decision did seem to hang a little too squarely on her brief conversation with Justine's mom about trying to get past dating guys who ran hot and cold, but it was still not how I anticipated things were going to play out. I will say if I had one gripe it's that it seemed a little inauthentic how abruptly Sam went from being basically a huge dick to suddenly an all-around good dude.

We finally caught up with season 2, and while the first few episodes were kind of inconsequential, the characters were so well drawn that it's a joy to see things play out. Bash (the character and the actor) may be our favorite. Just a complicated dude, and it's harder to act dumb or for that matter act like a bad actor than it seems.
