Page 1 of Heels
Just watched the first episode of this, pretty good, drama about a small time wrestling operation in small town USA, run by one of two brothers (the heel/bad guy), the other is his rival, the crowd favourite, in the ring.
Sort of reminds me of Sons of Anarchy with the inner family squabbling :)
few episodes into this, it's very good, actually to gasped out loud when something happened in the episode I watched today.
It's not about wrestling as such, so don't let that put you off, it could be sibling rivalry in any business, but wrestling allows for some colourful characters, and interactions :)
I really enjoyed Glow (it's a shame that was cancelled but they finished it without any real loose ends so that's fine!), so I might try this if it has a Sons vibe.

Glow another one of those shows I always meant to watch - at least in part because of Mark Marin (legendary podcaster and stand-up) but never got round to.
yeh, I meant to watch Glow but forgot about it.
saw the finale of Heels, really good stuff, only 8 episodes, fingers crossed it gets a 2nd series. Reviews seem positive, but then that means nothing if it is tucked away on little viewed platform :(

watched 1st episode of season 2 last night, v good, glad they have the recap at the beginning, and the internet to read recap of season 1 finale!
Not to spoil things but it was cancelled after season 2 and apparently ends on a cliffhanger :(
despite knowing it's been canned, I watched the rest of season 2, and it was very very good, I wonder if it involving wrestling put people off, who might have watched it if it was more "acceptable" entertainment/sport?
