Marc Maron's a standout, essentially playing a much angrier Ted V. Mikels type. It's not going to be getting any notices as the best show on television, but there's a solid foundation for the future there if it gets picked up (and being from some of the creative team behind Orange is the New Black likely gives it a leg up in that department)
Really liked the first episode of GLOW. Hopefully this continues!

I thought GLOW was a lot of fun, with a good ensemble cast, though Marc Maron is great. Given the short-lived source material, I wouldn't expect it to last beyond a second season, which I'd gladly watch, but season 1 is self-contained enough that if the show doesn't get a second season, I'm fine with that.

A nice easter egg in the intro.

Just finished both seasons of GLOW. Along with being a tight, entertaining show we get an inspired Alison Brie. Holy shit, i had no idea she had these kind of chops. Picking up an entire series on your back and carrying it to the promised land is no small feat. I can't say enough about her work here. She's an absolute star...

Absolutely. Just finished Season 2 myself, and she's terrific in this. I particularly enjoyed

Episode 8, where besides the genius of presenting a crazy show-within-a-show version of GLOW she simultaneously conveys how campy the material is (complete with Zoya's virtuous goat-riding Russian twin Olga) and her joy in being able to perform it.
