Yesterday I was reminded by my friend Billy of an amazing and terrifying thing called "GLOW: Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling." In the eighties this was a fun thing for guys to watch and I guess. It never really did anything for me as I hadn't hit puberty yet, but it was funny and campy, and I knew I wasn't supposed to be watching. I remember my father and my brothers would watch it on the weekends and sometimes if mom was away i'd get to sneak in some glow time.

In this clip, it is amazing to see how topical they could be by tackling such issues as immigration and tolerance.
