Atypicalpremieres worldwide August 11and today Netflix debuts this first look clip from the premiere episode — parents of teenagers will relate.

GLOW tells the fictional story of Ruth Wilder (Brie), an out-of-work, struggling actress in 1980s Los Angeles who finds one last chance for stardom when she’s thrust into the glitter and spandex world of women’s wrestling. In addition to working with 12 Hollywood misfits, Ruth also has to compete with Debbie Eagan (Betty Gilpin) a former soap actress who left the business to have a baby, only to be sucked back into work when her picture perfect life is not what it seems. And at the wheel is Sam Sylvia (Marc Maron), a washed-up, B-movie director who now must lead this group of women on the journey to wrestling stardom.
I came across this trailer will looking at other trailers. Well to be honest I feel down that movie trailer rabbit hole. But DAM I am glad I found this one.

Okay I am a little late seeing this and passing it on so I am hoping you have not seen this awesome Deadpool Musical. The musical is a parody of the Beauty and the Beast “Gaston” song. Right? I think it is that what it says on the Youtube page.
Oh hell it doesn’t matter just have fun watching it. A lot of time and love went into this production and it really, really shows.
Okay I have no idea what this about. Well a girl who is her own boss. Yeah I know your thinking it’s more than that and of course it is, duh. But it does look interesting. Interesting enough for this 55 year old white dude to watch.
