GLOW: Why The Show Glows
Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling (GLOW) is a fictionalised group of women’s wrestling organisation set in the 80s that banks on the success of it’s counterpart WWE. But the ladies in the organisation and the ones getting roped in aren’t actual wrestlers.
These women are struggling, aspiring actresses, models and stunt women who fell into the profession by accident and out of desperation to make a living. Women of all race, age, body type, unite in a grimy gym which we see from the eyes of our protagonist Alison Brie who plays Ruth Wilder.
The message of feminism, self-exploration in GLOW is clear as a crystal. These women through their insecurities and some predictable and unpredictable character developments find what makes them feel the best version of themselves.
GLOW in it’s glorious totality is a breath of fresh air.
Glow: The Saga Continues
The previous seasons of GLOW have hit our screen at the summer time making it the perfect binge-worthy content we want to devour ourselves in. And you don’t binge GLOW because it’s binge-worthy, you do it because you have to.
Season 3 of GLOW saw a major shakeup for the wrestling ladies as they made their way to Las Vegas. Carmen left the group, Sam is making movies with his daughter and the centre of it all Ruth and Debbie the best-friends have now seemingly parted ways.
After Ruth (Alison Brie) rejects Debbie’s (Betty Gilpin) proposal to direct her show they separate ways. Ruth goes her way to pursue acting. And if the centre of GLOW have gone their separate ways, what does it leave for Season 4?
Glow: The End
Well, the only good thing about GLOW ending on Season 4 is the fact that the writers are aware of it. We won’t be left with any heart-shattering cliff-hangers and so the gift of closure has been bestowed to us.
GLOW Season 4 was meant for a summer 2020 release but with the wake of the Corona Virus Pandemic, the production of the show had to be stopped after only one episode of the new season had been shot.
The fourth season of GLOW will focus on a completely new vibe with the girls moving back to Los Angeles. Ruth will be seen focusing on her acting career while the other girls focus on Debbie’s new wrestling show.
And the one thing that remains certain is- through this ride of female friendships and the journey of self-exploration we feel a little stronger, more confident, comfortable with the beauty of being different and we can only hope Ruth and Debbie find their way back to each other.
