Saw Ms Brie in something recently, and had a flash of Wow! She's not aging well!

Then reminded myself that she is ten years older than Annie Edison, her character on COMMUNITY, so is actually aging quite normally!

Oh, I'll be watching this.

(I can already envision my wife walking in on me:  "What the hell are you watching?  Female wrestling??  Seriously???")

Marc Maron is disturbingly good at playing an absolutely horrible person.

"Marc Maron is disturbingly good at playing an absolutely horrible person."

He said his years of experience as an asshole coke addict helped him in his role as an asshole coke addict wrestling promoter.

I've watched the first few episodes.  It's kinda funny but it tends to....wrestle...with it's attempts to be poignant.  

Orange is The New Black does it better.  

To me....it would have helped if it was an out and out comedy with no feints at drama.  I kinda recall watching GLOW way back when.  Everything about that stuff was funny.  This should be too.

Alison Brie and Betty Gilpin deserve Emmy nods.

I just heard Alison Brie does nudity in this series. I am SHOCKED, to you hear? SHOCKED?

I must make a comprehensive study of this, for science.

(Interestingly enough, I think Brie and--to a lesser extent--Marc Maron are the only actors who have any nude scenes throughout the entire series.)

Maron really reminded me of the sleazy magazine guy who snuck photos of She-Hulk in JB's FF run.

A lot of accounts seem to suggest Maron really is only playing a slightly different version of himself, but I thought he was fantastic.  He probably deserves an Emmy nod for this as well.  His character is sleezy, but still in a very funny, believable, kinda likable way, too!

@Shaun.

Nope.  That isn't the case. A few others have appeared nude.

I researched this, for science too of course. Sadly, just a side boob shot. But my unrequited love of Alison Brie means I will watch the rest of the show as well.

Hmm. My research must have been more scientific than yours!
