    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.

    $3/month for 3 months of Starz. You only need 1 month for this show.

    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.

    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.
