“GLOW” Burns Bright! Alison Brie Rocks New TV Show! Incredible Documentary Too!

Time To Wrestle!

Well, if you are female that is – because it’s time to celebrate the incredible women who were members of “GLOW” – The “Gorgeous Ladies Of Wrestling!”

This TV sensation ran for five years in the late 80’s – and the behind-the-scenes story is as wacky as what happened in the ring!

Netflix just began streaming a great new TV series starring Alison Brie, telling the story of the formation of “GLOW” – and the story is terrific.

The Real Women Of “GLOW!”

If you want to learn more about the phenomenon that was “GLOW” before you dig into the TV series, Netflix is also airing a documentary made five years ago about the real TV show!

Here is the trailer for the documentary:

The documentary is fascinating, hilariously funny and very honest, with candid interviews from the women who participated as characters in the TV show – it is a must see!

Then, after watching the documentary, you can start streaming the TV show!

I love that Netflix allows you to binge watch if you want – because this compelling new series is impossible to turn off!

  1. Not really sure that I buy into the ‘truth’ of wrestling these days. However, those ladies know how to put on a show!
    Best wishes, Pete.
