Late-hour fundraising
30 August 2017 | by Mr-FusionSee all my reviews

Throwing GLOW into doubt before it even hits the air, that's a solid dramatic hook. The girls resort to other sources for continued funding and I liked the heart in this episode. Coming together to put on a show; it's very Muppets.

It's also got just a dash of depravity when they go from car wash to conning donors. I loved the "Back to the Future" gag, especially Maron doing lines on a Reagan photo at a Say No to Drugs benefit.

Things really seemed to click here.
