GLOW: Inspired by the real-life Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling show from the 1980s, GLOW is a treasure trove of mile-high hair, blue eyeliner, spandex, and stellar songs like "Invincible" by Pat Benatar, "We Don't Get Along" by The Go-Go's, and "The Look" by Roxette. It also touches on some very topical issues of the era, such as sexism, racism, and inequality.
"[Co-creator] Carly [Mensch] always says this — I'm attributing it to her even though I'm saying it — I feel like we're writers with very modern brains but I think we're also very committed to really honoring the period," co-creator Liz Flahive told Gothamist of the series, which features an ensemble cast of badass women. "So I think we don't want to do anything that is distracting in any way, but I think that our hope is that it doesn't just live as a sort of nostalgic thing that you're watching. I think it wants to, ideally, bump up against the times we're living in a way that makes you think.” (Photo via Erica Parise/Netflix)
