DON’T MISS: “GLOW” – As the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling return for Round 2, they’re confronting the good, the bad and the ugly realities that come with being fresh-faced, basic-cable celebrities. Meanwhile, Ruth and Debbie settle into the day-to-day rigors of making the show together while dealing with the thorny issues that continue to plague their friendship. Also, Sam is getting even crankier now that he has a teen daughter to care for and 20 episodes of low-budget TV to churn out. The wrestling is harder, the stakes are higher and the hair is even bigger. (Friday, Netflix).
