[A]charming, low-key series.

Glow never lets itself become too serious: any incipient earnestness is swiftly undercut by a well-timed gag or quip.

There's magic in taking something ludicrous and finding the humanity in it, and GLOW knows that trick well

GLOW is terrific, but how could it be otherwise? The source material alone makes this an instant winner.

In the same way the wrestling league surprised viewers 30 years ago, viewers may be surprised to find Netflix's GLOW is one of the best new shows they'll see this summer.

All of this is bundled into an entertaining, amusing and at times poignant first season that also has some wretched excesses and predictable turns.

Audience Reviews for GLOW: Season 1

GLOW has some winning moments over its ten episode story line, but also some head-drops. Like the predictable world of TV wrestling GLOW telegraphs plot points and botches character development opportunities.Nonetheless it's an entertaining comedy with some excellent performances particularly from supporting cast members.
