Better than you might think!
3 November 2001 | by LorifanSee all my reviews

Since GLOW came into being in the mid-eighties, it has attracted a large amount of ridicule. It is often portrayed as sexist and cheesy, with humor that misses the mark badly.

Is this fair criticism? To some extent, yes. Certainly some of the wrestling was not of a high standard, and the skits and comedy were usually unfunny.

But if you search out matches involving some of the better GLOW girls, such as Attache, Spanish Red or Tina Ferrari, then you will be rewarded with excellent wrestling matches, played by women who are really convincing in their roles. Attache in particular, is an absolute star, a mixture of toughness, charisma and huge appeal.

In summary, GLOW is something of a guilty pleasure, the kind of show you don't want to admit to liking, but secretly do!
