Glow is smartly written and the kind of character-driven TV that not only reflects our own messy lives but also those of the people we know, even if we’re not bouncing around a ring.

To call it a feel-good hit would be a bit reductive and presumptive, but “GLOW” deserves all the love and respect thrust upon it. Sit back, turn it up, and enjoy.

GLOW fully owns its campiness and its showy aesthetics, but it’s smart and subversive underneath the glitter.
