'Orange Is the New Black' and other reasons to stay home in June
In 2017, Netflix is really delivering on the whole kick **** women on TV theme.
And there are two shows that I am really excited for.
First off, Orange is the New Black, which has been around four seasons now.
Is this a step forward or backwards for equality?
This season, we're brought back in the thick of it, and it starts hard and fast.
Especially because the whole season takes place over just three days, so toothbrush shivs aplenty.
How many can you squeeze into 72 hours?
[LAUGH] I think you can squeeze in plenty.
The second ever episode was called Tit Punch.
Now, if that doesn't tell you what the show is about, I don't know what will.
But, this isn't even the Netflix show that I'm most excited about for this year.
I wanna talk about Glow.
They're looking for unconventional women, whatever that means.
Hello ladies, I'm Sam Silvia, and this is Glow.
Sorry, what's GLOW?
Gorgeous ladies of wrestling.
So this one's also from Jenji Kohan and Liz Flahive, so Orange is the New Black and Homeland, but it's a fictional show about an actual wrestling promotion from the eighties in Las Vegas.
And the thing I love about it is the really awesome eighties vibes.
So from the old TVs to the brick cell phones, everything down to the pitch perfect costumes, and the soundtrack.
I mean, what I love, and fair cop, a bit of personal bias here, is that it's a wrestling show that takes wrestling seriously.
So it deals with the business of wrestling, the behind the scenes, and the work that goes into making it look so good.
Totally but for [INAUDIBLE] that's all about wrestling, it's not just body slams we go into the world behind the wrestling, the life of these women outside the rings.
It hits the same nodes as orange is the new black, but it's a much lighter half hour comedy instead of the hour long drama
So you'll be able to watch Orange is the New Black from June 9th, and Glow is out on June 23rd.
Better cancel your plans for that month.
