GLOW Season 3 on Netflix: Is Debbie going to be the center of attraction this time?

GLOW’s Debbie Liberty Belle Eagen said to her best friend Ruth that when she turned 14 she realized that people only cared how she looked. Ruth agrees to what her best friend told her and agrees to join her for dinner. Together they eat burgers and laugh with their mouths full.

There are very few shows out there which examine women’s world especially women’s complicated and sometimes traumatic relationships with their bodies. This is the concept on which Netflix’s GLOW is based on. GLOW is a fictionalized account of Eighties wrestling troupe, the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling. GLOW is a comedy-drama which is definitely objectifying and could have been easily sleazy. But GLOW is a bright Trojan horse which is exposing the societal injustices our bodies slam into from time to time.

GLOW gives each of its characters whose stories are given some space to breathe, which makes GLOW a ragtag ensemble of characters. Cherry, the head trainer, worries that having a baby might change the way her career is leading. Arthie is confused about how she should define her sexuality. On the other hand, Jenny is trying her best to convince her politically incorrect roommate Melanie about fortune cookies at Asian-themed hotel.

The new season of Netflix’s GLOW completely belongs to Debbie. Once fierce and fragile at the hands of Gilpin’s, Debbie faces a lot of battles outside the ring instead of inside the ring. As the toughest part of her life comes, it is still a question as to how she is going to react to it. It comes when a producer in a sea of male chauvinists invokes delicious strain of misandry in her.

But for Noughties indie-pop, Kate Nash is yet to be seen loosen up in her role as Rhonda.
