It was announced that Netflix has suspended (fired) Kevin Spacey from House of Cards (whom I believe he may have produced to an extent) after the allegations of sexual abuse came to light. Part of the situation might have been further exacerbated with him “coming out of the closet” at the same time, which was not ironically rejected by the LBGT community in poor taste and timing. In view of these matters, I wanted to provide some personal thoughts on the situation.
The Defenders came out on Friday at midnight with me watching around 5am since I was simply too tired to stay up a few extra hours. I managed to finish the series this morning after catching a few more episodes last night and have been mulling over the show for a good day now. I’m not going to do an episode-by-episode review but tackle the series as a whole, especially in the realm these four characters.
If you were a pro-wrestling fan during the 80s, it would be impossible to have missed GLOW in some format. Even if you weren’t into women’s pro-wrestling, at the very least, you may have encountered the anomaly that occurred for a brief stint that built up a sort of cult following and oddball subculture. So when Netflix announced that it was going to create a series around the federation, naturally someone like myself would be inclined towards giving it a shot.
