    Fuck I was posting this and hit submit by accident. Thread title is fucked. Can someone fix it?

    Anyway, you get the idea. Alison Brie, Netflix, Jenji Kohan and wrestling. Can't go wrong. Thoughts?

    Have you watched the documentary about GLOW. It's decent.

    Admittedly, I miss GLOW and POWW. But, I don't remember as much about the latter promotion.

    Yep. And I read that Jillian Jacobs (Britta) is a huge PWG fan. Would be amazing if she had a cameo.

    Jenji Kohan can do no wrong in the right setting. Weeds kind of fell off the rails but OITNB has only gotten better. I'm excited to see what she does with this.

    I would love for this show to be a huge success causing women's wrestling to become trendy, and for WWE to take notice, and create an all women's show. Am I pushing it? Ok I'll sit down.

    In a sense, female wrestlers have already began this push for more exposure by their importance on NXT.

    Yes.

    She's pretty good as in actress, I enjoyed her on Community. As for this, I'm interested in the project, definitely gonna have to check it out, once it's released.

    It looks like it'll be really good. Jenji Kohan has won me back with OITNB after Weeds got all up its own ass and sucked for the last few seasons it was on. Hopefully OITNB stays as good as its been.

    As much as I like the aspect of a pseudo "biography" about GLOW, I'm mostly excited about Marc Maron playing the promoter. He's fucking awesome and as soon as I heard what his role was I was on board. It's a perfect casting.

    The official date is the twenty-third of June. Well, I've to admit, I'm not really feeling it. Although, it looks funny in parts, it doesn't remind me of G.L.O.W.. Actually, after watching the trailer, it looks similar to the comedy-drama film Whip It.

    I didn't watch the trailer (I never watch trailers) but am really looking forward to this series.

    GLOW looks awesome. If it's anything like Orange is the New Black, it'll be a success and will get more mainstream attention for wrestling as a whole. Awesome Kong and Alex Riley being apart of the cast makes me even more excited.

    Just watched the entire damn thing, and I would say, it's good.

    It's accessible too. By which I mean, you don't need to be a wrestling fan to follow it. Almost in the same way, you don't need to understand the paper business to follow The Office.

    There's a couple of cameos early on - Daniels, Kaz I think, Carlito, Tyrus, Morrison, Joey Ryan, Alex Riley - who atleast can say, he's a better actor than Cena. And if your goal 10 years ago was to see pop star Kate Nash topless, that's in there too.

    The former Awesome Kong is great in it. Who knew, she was funny. And can actually act. Never for a second does it feel like a typical wooden wrestler cross-over.

    Alison Brie does a great job too.

    I wonder how much training, and how much of the in-ring stuff the actual actors actually do.

    I just finished as well. It's good for the most part. More funny than serious drama. I was obviously expecting an orange is the new black style but maybe more on the serious side than on the comedic. For me it was funnier than OitNB.

    A couple of points; I was disappointed not to have a Matilda the Hun character, I know they didn't use real characters but they had approximate doubles for a lot of them. There was zero kayfabe, which I thought would be a really interesting plot device. For example the two friends would be kept apart by company rules not giving them a chance to work through their differences. It would also have been accurate as glow had very strict kayfabe policy. Also something that we've not really seen in film before.

    A couple of things that annoyed me. The women essentially train themselves, which makes it all look very easy. Like anyone can do it. And one nitpicking the top heel and top face standing at ringside having a chat after their match. Just set that backstage.

    But all in all very good.
