In "A Very GLOW Christmas," the greatest gift of all is the return of wrestling

B

Fun fact: WWE stands for “World Wrestling Entertainment,” but if you ask Vince McMahon what it stands for, he’ll just say “WWE.” Kind of like how “Kentucky Fried Chicken” is now just “KFC.” It’s a case of Vince McMahon doing anything not to say “wrestling” or to consider his “sports entertainment” empire a “wrestling”…

Glow season three makes a "Hollywood Homecoming," at the worst possible time

C+

After a complete break from the Fan-Tan and professional wrestling in the previous episode, the last thing GLOW needed in its next episode was more of a break from professional wrestling. Especially since “Outward Bound” was supposed to be these characters’ vacation, yet you’d still almost think they’re still on one …

A Very Special GLOW explains the dangers of “Desert Pollen” on the body and mind

B

It wouldn’t seem like “The One Where Melrose Screws A Gigolo” would be the GLOW episode where body issues and physical and mental health in professional wrestling (and in general) are a major topic of discussion, but that’s exactly what “Desert Pollen” is. In fact, even that aspect of the episode ultimately speaks to…

The show must go on—and it does—with the returning GLOW’s “Up, Up, Up”

A-

For those familiar with the real-life G.L.O.W., there was always the question of when—if ever—Netflix’s GLOW was going to take its show on the road. Specifically to Las Vegas, as that’s where the original series was filmed—at the Riviera—in the first place. GLOW, instead, took some additional steps to get there,…

With “Years, Continents, Bloodshed,” it's the end of Veronica Mars as we know it

B

Well, this episode certainly explains what Veronica meant in her season premiere voiceover about this particular spring break being “the beginning of the end.” Veronica Mars’ fourth season finale is the end of Neptune as we know it, the end of Veronica Mars in Neptune, and—as you can probably also tell from people’s…

“Losing Streak” reaffirms Keith Mars’ World’s Greatest Dad status, Veronica Mars’ self-fulfilling prophecy

A-

Whenever you talk about the best television parents of all-time, Keith Mars’ name shows up a lot. The father-daughter relationship between him and Veronica has been integral to Veronica Mars’ identity from the very beginning, powerful enough for all of us to find Enrico Colantoni asking Kristen Bell, “Who’s your…

As spring break gets deadlier, Veronica Mars visits the ghosts (and boyfriends) of seasons past

A-

Only four episodes in, the fourth season of Veronica Mars is surprisingly dense. Except for the Maloof family ring (presumably) and Dick Casablancas’ acting career and life as “King of Spring Break”), everything has ended up being in service to the larger mystery of the bombings, which are now classified as a serial…

With “Keep Calm And Party On,” Veronica Mars’ need to be right blows up in everyone's face

A

While there, naturally, had to be a lot of exposition and character introductions in the first two episodes, “Keep Calm And Party On” is the first episode where things can just be. And in being, a lot happens. In fact, despite only being the third episode of the season, this is also the turning point: Not just because…

In “Chino And The Man,” Veronica Mars addresses true crime, Big Dick's buddy, & "New Logan"

A-

While Veronica gave an understandable reason for refusing Logan’s marriage proposal in the season premiere, her opening voiceover in “Chino And The Man” takes a turn by further explaining that she felt like Logan “proposed on a lark.” Whether that’s true or not, that’s what Veronica believes, especially as there was…
