Netflix’s wrestling drama GLOW is funny, poignant, and wonderfully acted, but what makes it really interesting is how aware it is of its own contradictions.

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.

This new interpretation of GLOW… is packed with an excellent ensemble cast… sharp commentary on gender and racial stereotypes, and an awesomely ’80s soundtrack. It’s also just plain fun.

One of the best things about GLOW is the sheer Eighties-ness of it all — it’s a sensory explosion of synth-heavy tunes, neon lights, high-cut leotards, hairspray… and even a robot which dispenses cocaine.

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

DEAR WHITE PEOPLE – What the critics are saying about the TV show!!

All those detractors who accused it of “race-baiting” only proves why a series like this is so relevant and necessary. But Dear White People is not arrogant or deranged enough to think it’s got the answers. It’s simply asking the questions.

mart, engaging new show, with exceptional cast, that gets better episode by episode – always a good sign.

Dear White People is a pop culture-savvy, sometimes explicit, always entertaining look at that process. It’s the perfect series for young people negotiating a world where struggles over identity grow more complex every day.

Dear White People does its job by furthering a vital discussion with interesting characters.

May 1, 2017 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

The show is beautifully character-driven, weaving through romantic and platonic and unrequited relationships, while also highlighting those aforementioned multitudes of blackness.

Yet despite all the right-on sloganising, there’s lively playing from an unfamiliar cast who create some intriguing characters, and the series may well prove worth pursuing.
