It's a Huge Disappointment, Ursula
on January 31, 2007
Ursula Hayden (who played Babe the Farmer's Daughter) has purchased the rights to the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling and is trying to revive the franchise. As a huge fan of the show, I thought this was good news. However, based on this DVD I'm not gonna hold out much hope for its return:
Dear Ursula (because I know she's going to be reading these reviews),
If you want to revive interest in GLOW, this isn't the way to do it. You don't start by lying to the small band of hardcore fans that kept interest in the show alive. This is not "The Very Best of Glow." You really ought to have called it "Some Random Episode from Season Four"! It is not two hours long. Even with the "bonus" matches in the "features" section it clocks in at under an hour. It shows a pretty blatant disregard for the fans, if you ask me.
And Season Four? I know that these were your years on the show, but these were the episodes that killed the series! Market shows from Seasons One and Two, focus on the wrestling, lose the campy comedy bits, and drop any episode with the annoying commentary from Motor Mouth Morgan. Do that and you'll be golden.
Thanks for listening,
A rabid GLOW fan (Ashley Cartier rules!!!)
