Here's another reason you need to watch "GLOW" — Chris Lowell and his '80s blazers are an absolute delight
There are many, many (many, many) reasons you should stop what you’re doing and binge-watch Netflix’s latest original, GLOW. While you might initially tune into the series for the strong female characters and the age-old underdog story of good wrestler vs. wronged wrestler, you stay because the ladies are all well-developed and well-rounded and kick ass, and tbh, it’s amazing.
And then you stick around because you’re laughing, crying, and cheering along with the show.
If you still need one more reason to binge all 10 episodes like it’s your job, here’s another: Chris Lowell wears some really sweet ’80s threads, as if he was born to wear a slightly oversized blazer.
Lowell (who you probably best know as Piz, of #TeamPiz fame on Veronica Mars) gives a completely stellar performance without stealing the show from the women. Playing Sebastian — or “Bash,” as he prefers — he’s the producer for the TV show (within the TV show), G.L.O.W. He has a fondness for wrestling, along with cool ’80s robots and spending mom’s money.
GLOW’s showrunners, Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch, actually approached Lowell for the role, and at first he was hesitant to accept. In the end, they won him over.
And after watching Lowell’s performance, along with getting a look at some of Bash’s best outfits, we are eternally grateful, too. Never thought a fun fantasy would be “Piz in blazers,” but here we are.
And Lowell hopes his new look sways some votes in his favor.
GLOW is great, please watch GLOW. It’s streaming on Netflix RIGHT NOW, and #TeamPiz for life.
