Episode 088 – Skyscraper Glow

It’s that skyscraper glow! And from the top rope coming down hard with a flying elbow is Netflix’s second season to “Glow” and her opponent weighing a total of a sizable mound of Chinese Dollars, it’s that other Dwayne Johnson flick, “Skyscraper”.

Skyscraper glow

Welcome to an all-new all wrestler themed episode where we royal ramble on about our favourite sport of all. Well to be exact one show features women struggling with identity, sexual harassment and Marc Maron’s moustache. The other is a movie starring the people’s movie star The Rock, where he’s not a chief primatologist. And Kevin Hart isn’t anywhere to be seen to chew up the scenery.

Just let that soul glow!

“Glow” returns to Netflix for a second season, as we rejoin the gorgeous ladies of wrestling. Picking up right where we left off in the last season. the girls now must keep a show running after the success of their pilot taping. But new hurdles appear in the form of locker room drama, slimy executives and the escalating tension between the main characters Ruth and Debbie.

The new season ups the stakes in both character arcs and plot, while managing to be topical and still fun. Just like the best of wrestling, it’s multiple storyline threads that culminate in a grand finale that will leave fans smiling.

Towering inferno 

In our main review segment, we scale the heights of “Skyscraper”, the latest from Mr Hollywood himself, Dwayne Johnson. This Rock plays a former FBI agent who must rescue his family from a newly built skyscraper. Not only is the building the tallest in the world, overtaken by criminals and set afire. This also marks the first non-comedy of director Rawson Marshall Thurber’s career, and his second collaboration with Johnson, following 2016’s “Central Intelligence”
