The young women who make it to the final dozen to form GLOW are exposed to sexism in the industry on a daily basis and from a grotty gym they transform their bodies into weapons. It’s impossible not to view this show through a 2017 lens and the script even appears to acknowledge this.

Mais Légion est-il revenu pour les affronter ou pour une autre raison ?

Ce n’est pas le seul retour que l’équipe devra gérer.

The show has a very strong cast, featuring Sydelle Noel as no-nonsense Cherry with a firm hold over Sam who shrinks in her presence and Britney Young as Carmen, the daughter of a famous wrestling giant who suffers from stage fright.

Kia Stevens puts in a hilarious performance as Tammé whose wrestling persona The Welfare Queen throws food stamps over her enemies whilst Sunita Mani plays the uncomfortably funny Beirut the Mad Bomber in the ring, having been encouraged by producer Sebastian “Bash” Howard (Chris Lowell) to play the Arab ‘stereotype’ as a result of her Indian heritage. Her performance as the broke and desperate Ruth is pitch-perfect, making a morally ambiguous character likeable and someone you cannot help but root for.

When Ruth Wilder (Alison Brie) auditions for yet another insubstantial female acting role and doesn’t even manage to land the part, she appeals to the casting director for pointers.

She is told that she is the ‘real’ girl that no one wants to cast and is offered pornography as a career alternative.

Of course, there is an issue with the fact that the form of female empowerment we are witnessing caters to the male gaze, but if you look at the Hall of Fame-ers in male wrestling they are doing exactly the same; showing off their physique in minimal outfits and presenting their bodies as an attractive, powerful ideal.

It might only have been a baby step, but it was nonetheless a step for women and GLOW celebrates this with an array of vibrant, strong and funny characters in the ring.

There are moments in the show where you might lose some enthusiasm for this zero-to-hero story, however.

With a strong cast of predominantly female actresses, GLOW attempts an Orange Is The New Black-style exploration of the personal lives of the women outside of training but fails to show much of substance with any bearing on the overarching narrative.

It is in her numerous scenes as different characters and wrestling personas that her star quality really shines through, however.
