Alison Brie, left, and Betty Gilpin in GLOW on Netflix.

What to watch this weekend: 'GLOW,' second season of 'Preacher'

Ready to rumble: GLOW

Four words: Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling. Yes, the fluorescent, body-slamming soap opera GLOW starring a cast of exaggerated characters is back, this time as a fictionalized Netflix series. Alison Brie (Community, Mad Men) stars as Ruth, a down-on-her-luck actor struggling to make it in Hollywood. She slowly but surely finds her calling with GLOW, a new TV show created by B-movie director Sam Sylvia (Marc Maron). Alongside the best friend she scorned (Betty Gilpin, Nurse Jackie) and a dozen other ragtag women, Ruth becomes a showstopping wrestling character. The quirky comedy comes from the creators of Orange Is the New Black and features plenty of big hair, blue eye shadow and neon leotards and is punctuated by '80s hits like Patty Smyth's The Warrior and Tears for Fears' Head Over Heels. Can we please get a soundtrack, Netflix? Now streaming on Netflix....
