GLOW is full of engaging characters, who pull viewers into their lives and backstories. However, the show relies too much on blatant sexuality, obscenity, offensive, and hurtful humor, and physical exploitation of the female wrestlers to get its points across. An important message of empowerment, perseverance and compassion may be lurking beneath the surface of GLOW. These positive themes are subtly interwoven under layers of gritty reality, and over-the-top, melodramatic debauchery. Sadly, the series is studded with more negative examples than positive ones.
GLOW: Here’s how much nudity is in season 3! – HITC
We regularly see the actors themselves — not stunt doubles — hoist each other up on to their shoulders, perform daring leaps and impressive suplexes. They hit the canvas hard and simply get up again. Female nudity played for comedy is vanishingly rare on screen. The scene also served to re-cement the friendship between Ruth and Debbie, so it genuinely was essential to the story. The scene is intimate and powerful, quite unlike the usual female shower scenes that invite viewers to watch as detached voyeurs rather than engage empathetically. Season three focuses a lot on the toll wrestling and performing takes on the body and the mind. They are treated equally seriously, as we see Debbie Betty Gilpin and Cherry Sydelle Noel worry about what having a child will do to their bodies and careers.

What We Know So Far. About the Fictional Drug. The beloved actress goes fully topless not once, but twice, in the very first episode. A few weeks ago, she made headlines confessing about a time when she was asked to take her shirt off with a bra top still on for an Entourage audition and just the other night, she joked on The Late Late Show with James Corden about her very real nerves heading into her first real sex scene in Sleeping With Other People. So, this bold bit of nudity is a bit of an ironic punchline.
