    Heels (Starz Series Starring Stephen Amell)



    Imdb summary:
    Two brothers and rivals - one a villain, or "heel," in the ring; the other a hero, or "face," war over their late father's wrestling promotion, vying for national attention in small-town Georgia.

    This is the show that CM Punk will have some role in. I don't have Starz but I'll find a way to watch it after it airs.

    I've only seen clips of GLOW on Netflix but this kind of has the same feel imo. With Green Arrow in the mix I would like to believe he'll have at least some integrity and not let the producers turn into some sideshow bullshit like most.

    I may have to check around to see if I know someone with Starz.

    Ringsidenews posted something about season 2 and I guess it was a typo but it got me really confused on how I missed it. I'm excited for it.

    The dialogue can be rough, but it's pretty enjoyable. I assume it'll pick up more as we delve into the effects of what happened at the end of episode 1

    95% critics, 96% fan score on rotten tomatoes.

    I'm glad to see it's doing well.

    Fuck the critics. Fan score on RT is pointless too but way more reliable than the critics. It scares me when the critics and fans are so close, it shows that someone is lying lol

    @MTR were you able to watch it? Let me know if you want episode 2, it just came out. I haven't watched it yet.

    If anyone else wants to start watching just send me a PM if you don't have Starz.

    I enjoyed episode 2. No wrestling but some character development.

    Ace is such a mark, not wanting to be booed when he's a natural heel.

    Episode 3 has Punk as Ricky Rabies.

    Episode 3 with one Phil "CM Punk" Brooks is out. I won't get to watch it until later today though. Got a bunch of stuff for the baby's room to put together.

    I really enjoyed episode 3. I wish this wasn't on Starz so more people could watch it. Punk did a great job, his acting seemed a little wooden at first but it felt more believable as the episode went on. I don't know much about Tracy Smothers but apparently he was a big part of the inspiration for the Ricky Rabies character.

    Ace was great as a heel in the ring. I'm interested to see what happens with Wild Bill. He was featured a lot in the trailers before the show started so I had a feeling he would have some type of fall from grace.

    Once again PM me if you want to watch any of the episodes. More people should watch this show and tell their wrestling friends about it.

    Episode 4 aired on Sunday. I just got around to watching it today. Didn't show a ring once but had a lot of character development. This is a good show, I wish it was on a channel more people watched.

    I'm loving it. I'm glad it's not on AMC or USA, we would get ZERO SSC. Episode 4 was great. Ace just reminds me of Edge so much.

    I just meant HBO or Showtime might be better. However they would have a high bar to reach for a second season with either of those and hopefully with Starz it's manageable. What is SCC?

    Starz has a pretty solid reach as well though obviously not as big as HBO or Showtime.

    SSC=Strong Sexual Content Did you see that blonde Edge was tagging? Well, both but the most recent? Yessir!

    5 episodes in and this show is getting really good. The actual wrestling portions are...what they are, but the acting is pretty good and I like where the story has gone since episode 3.

    I also noticed that the ring gear they're wearing gets better from episodes 1-2 as the series progresses. I wonder if they got a real gear maker involved? lol.

    Finished episode 5, my intrigue is growing.

    Crystal has become an interesting and complex character, she might just steal the show when all is said and done.

    My best friend and I have been watching this but I think my oldest son would dig it (He's 20, big wrestling fan) so I'm going to binge it with him see what he thinks.

    Every episode imo is better than the last. This past one was phenomenal. Last night we watched ep 5 and I told him this is my favorite show about wrestling in terms of what's on today.

    I'm surprised Mick Foley didn't promote that he was going to be on Heels last night.

    I thought episode 6 wasn't quite as good as the previous episodes. It wasn't bad at all, just not nearly as good as 5.

    I did enjoy how Ace is becoming more of a layered character in that he's a spoiled brat in the ring but has flashes of being a good person.

    I'm glad he didn't because I marked the fuck out. I would've been pissed if they advertised him for 12 seconds of camera time.

    I wonder where Bobby Pin is from because I thought putting ranch on everything was a midwest thing.

    The guy who plays Diego has a podcast and he had Punk on the most recent one. This was before he signed to AEW, but it's still good. It makes me interested to listen to some of the other ones with other actors from Heels. It's called Dropping Character.
    https://linktr.ee/droppingcharacter

    Interesting to hear that Ace Steel is training people in Florida for WWE. I didn't know that.

    He really puts over Mickie James. I didn't know he ever had any kind of debut with her for WWE. Reading up on it apparently it was on Sunday Night Heat and I guess never aired?

    Well, the actor's IMDB says he was in a short film called "A Midwestern Methamphetamine Fairtytale"

    Love this show! My only critique is - can we please never have any more episodes where the wife is singing (on the porch/in church, etc). Please.

    I could take 1 hour of just the wife doing whatever the fuck she wants. She is super hot.

    That was a real good episode.

    Willie is an asshole, really impressed with James Harrison as an actor.

    That was a powerful performance from Alison Luff.

    I really hope we get a season 2. Seems like by now we'd have some kind of info that Starz greenlit another season but who knows. Wrestling is a very very niche form of entertainment and this show tries to appeal to a broader audience but idk if it's working. I love this show, I think it's the best wrestling show we've had since the late 90's.

    Unfortunately I started watching this show as it aired and very much like it, which means there won't be a season two. Can't remember the last show I started watching when it began and saw it be renewed.

    Great penultimate episode. Should be a crazy season finale. I hope it's not a series finale also.

    Fantastic episode but those last five minutes were nothing short of brilliant. Can't wait for the finale. If it is the series finale, this was a hell of a run. I'd be hard pressed to think of another series with only eight episodes that was this good.

    Yeah if all we get are these 8 episodes, that's fine by me. Last night's episode was incredible. My question is this....is this a Starz production or can the people involved maybe wind up on Netflix, Hulu, etc? If wrestling were more popular in the mainstream we'd have heard a 2nd season was signed and sealed by the 3rd episode that's how good this show has been. Hopefully it's appealed to a good percentage of non-wrestling fans.

    They should have 50 cent add his name to it. All his shows do well.

    My understanding is that it's not a Starz production, they're just the app streaming it. If they choose not to pick it up for a second season they producers and showrunners (including Mike O'Malley who plays Gully) can then shop it to someone else. Kind of like how NBC picked up Brooklyn 99 for a couple seasons after Fox canceled it.

    A different streaming service with more customers? I don't know how many subscribers Starz has vs something like HBO/MAX or Netflix but another service might want to take a chance on it. But fingers crossed Starz renews it.

    I would imagine it's no different than any other channel. If they "can't make it" on Starz, I don't really know what that means. Is it the easiest place to get over? I guess I don't know what you mean by that.

    Agreed. We’ve only just scratched the surface of the potential storyline material, I’ll be royally pissed if there isn’t a season two.

    In kayfabe, how do you make sense of that ending?

    Still hoping we get a season 2.

    I'll spoiler my response because it's pretty simple:



    I hope they have a season 2. If they don't, they wrapped it up pretty nicely in my opinion.

    I enjoyed that episode.

    If it is indeed the series finale, which I really hope it isnít, you can


    If we get multiple seasons, there are easily 5-6 secondary storylines that could be had.

    This is one of those situations where maybe Starz were waiting to see how people reacted to it overall. It's one thing as fans of wrestling to finally get something that is entertaining, that in a way appreciates the business and the art of pro wrestling. It's another thing if you're someone who despite being a fan of drama, action, athleticism, you might still think wrestling is corny.

    Nash always has to be hyperbolic instead of letting people enjoy things.

    Maybe 10. Netflix has proven that more than 10 episodes usually makes shows drag.

    Trailer for season two. First episode was this past weekend.



    First episode wasn't too bad but that trailer definitely has me excited for the season.

    Yeah Starz is running a crazy deal I have it through Amazon Prime for the next few months.

    Watched ep 1 of the new season last night. Incredible.

    I had to log in to check but yep, Season 1 is available if you get Starz. I mean it's better than NOT watching it at all. If you can't afford $5 a month I totally get it every dime counts. I have like 9 streaming services I pay for it's like having cable lol

    Yeah I have cable mostly for wrestling and a handful of streaming services. I can swing it for a short period but need to make sure I can see it all. Keep evaluating our streaming and cable on a regular basis to help tweak budget.

    Yeah definitely watch Season 1 it was great. I will say this about Starz, don't really know much about their shows outside of Heels and I think Power is on there, but they do have some really good movies like all the new Spider Man movies.

    The final two episodes of the first season were some of my favorite TV of the last few years. Just incredible.

    Really enjoyed episode two of this season. They set some stuff up that I’m excited about. The ending was kind of dumb but I’m intrigued as to how Ace gets out of the situation.

    The first two episodes were great, up until that stupid ending.

    Kelli Berglund is really good; Iím excited to see what she does with the rest of season two and beyond.

    That back and forth with Ace and the guy at the store was hilarious even if it was brief. He told Ace, you're really going to go hiking in soccer shoes? That's what happens.

    Agreed. Great scene with some laughs and a nugget of warning. Just because Ace is an athlete doesn’t mean he can go Into The Wild and survive. Maybe this is what he needs for some humility and growth.

    Season two is really good, a shame that we’re already headed down the stretch run. Kelli Berglund is killing it.

    I hope there are more seasons coming…

    That was a disappointing ending to the season…

    Reportedly the series has been canceled. I feel like it getting a second season was a surprise so this isn’t shocking at all.

    I'm reading that this was one of the most watched shows they had and the way this season ended feels like they wouldn't have ended it that way if they knew this was it. That's what sucks. Season 2 was fire, imo better than the first. There were like 4-5 other shows cancelled as well so I'm betting this is more to do with a direction change than the show being good/bad.

    From what I’ve read it seems like it may be a victim of the writer’s strike as well.
