I finally saw Glow Season 2 on Netflix, and it’s better than the previous season! It’s a masterpiece that glows, and it’s perfect. To no surprise, my favorite character is Zoya. But, all the ladies rock and the show is just perfect. Glow is one of the best shows on Netflix right now. Episodes are short but intense. And, I hadn’t enough. I binged it in record time. I just hope we’ll enjoy a third season soon. And if you feel like it, you can see the documentary about the real Glow women who made it happen, Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling.
SPOILERS: this review contains massive spoilers from the second season of Glow. If you haven’t seen this one, nor the first season, go to Netflix right now. It also has great music!
We find our characters having a second season on the TV. However, things aren’t that easy. Sam, the director, is jealous because Zoya (Ruth) is flirting with a cameraman. But so is Liberty Belle (Debbie). They’re making Ruth’s life miserable between the two. Plus, Ruth has super cool ideas to make Glow shine even brighter. To make matters worse, one of the high fishes of the TV station asks Ruth to a dinner. She thinks it’s something serious, but he only wants to have sex with her. She decides to run, and then the show is canceled.
Sam also has to deal with his daughter. By the end of the show, the mother shows up, and he has to accept that she’s going back to her mother. Sam is a very cranky old man who has many issues. But he has a good heart under all those weird layers or crankiness. He loves his daughter, and he likes Ruth. By the end of the show, he stops being a dick. Now we’ll see for how long he’s capable of not being a dick to everybody.
Debbie, on the other side, had an awful time. She’s divorcing her husband, and she’s putting all her frustrations on Ruth. So, she wants to punish her (instead of her husband). She goes as far as to break Ruth’s ankle!
Brittanica (Rhonda) has visa problems. She’s from the UK, and to keep up with the show, she decides to marry one of the fans. However, Sebastian, the wealthy young producer, decides to marry her. He does so after a dear friend of his dies. But he doesn’t say anything to anyone. He’s worried as hell (you’ll see that on his face.)
There’s a lot of love and wrestling in the show. We also get to have a glimpse on the world of wrestling, the TV, and the 80s. All the funky fashion and the weird TV spots are gold.
Wrestling is an art, and getting to know the origins of female wrestling is impressive. It’s also empowering to see how ordinary women became terrific. I highly recommend watching the documentary that you can find on Netflix if you want to take a look at the real women who inspired the show. Wrestling is very dangerous, despite being very flashy. It’s tough to do what they do, and if not done well it can have serious consequences.
I’m just amazed at the show. I loved the second season way more than the first. The only thing that I dislike is how long episodes last. They’re too short! I want more and more of this series.
For the time being, I’ll just binge the whole series again (from the first season) and enjoy Zoya the Destroya! Ruth is funny and passionate. But the character she plays is so irreverent and funny that I can’t get enough! All the ladies rock and are amazing. Just give this show a try, and maybe you’ll end up watching wrestling as well.
