RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 6 episode 3 begins as expected. While the showdown between the 2 halves of the cast was set, what followed was “Hi Gurl! What’s your name?” You didn’t expect them to stay standoffish for long, did you? Besides, now it’s time for the passive-aggressive bitchery to begin. Oh, Bianca Del Rio, give it to Gia Gunn. Give it good. Didn’t appear like anyone from one team knew someone from the other team ahead of time, which makes sense if Ru is trying to set up a rivalry between the two. It would’ve been fun had their … Continue reading
Last week on RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 6 we met the first half of the dragtestants. Now it’s time to meet the 2nd group in RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 6 episode 2. The second group gets to come in to the workroom after the first group has a mini celebration with cupcakes, some kind of pink drink and silly string. Mama Ru has to let them girls have it so they’ll go to bed. Don’t make Mama mad! And so the next morning, or the next week or whatever kind of illusion we’re trying to foster here…. (wink, wink) the … Continue reading
Downton Abbey is done. The Olympics are over. What a perfect time to keep my television viewing habits going and start RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 6! Yay! Who needs to get up off the couch? Ru is setting us up to believe that there’s some sort of horror/slasher movie theme this season. Whatever. After watching this first episode, I can report that there were no references to blood or horror at all. We’ll see if that holds up for the season. And speaking of seasons, we’re treated to our first twist of RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 6, and it’s a … Continue reading
RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 1 Episode 2 opens with Ru telling us in his pop-up that this episode marks the first group challenge in Drag Race herstory. “Long ago, when the lighting was hard, and the focus was always soft…” – RuPaul I love it when RuPaul throws shade at herself. Is there a term for that? Self shade? Boomerang shade? Shady boomerang? Someone get on that & make it snappy. One thing I didn’t notice in last week’s episode is the TV Ru uses to tease the episode’s challenge. It’s like the AV club cart from high school. Only … Continue reading
Lo these many years ago, a little show called RuPaul’s Drag Race debuted. And while the show would go on to win fans all over the world, when it came time for Saturday marathons, the first season has always been conspicuously missing. Well no more. Logo is re-running the entire first season. So start your engines – here comes RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 1 episode 1! Let’s look at how The Big Gay Sketch Show embodied it before we get started (Don’t play if you don’t like the naughty words that RuPaul has bleeped every week. They’re not bleeped here.): … Continue reading
It’s time to wrap up Season 5 of RuPaul’s Drag Race with a finale extravaganza. Who was crowned the victor after this 2 hour episode? Will it be Jinkx? (A fan favorite, but apparently not favored by other contestants.) Alaska? (Can a couple produce 2 champions?) Roxxxy Andrews? (Not a popular fan choice, but this is Ru’s decision and hers alone.) Why am I showing a picture of Detox when she can’t possibly win? Because that monochrome makeup is SICKENING. Can I get an amen? If this episode is feeling too long for you, why not head on over to … Continue reading
Otherwise known as a clip show, RuPaul’s Drag Race brings us the Season 5 Countdown to the Crown! It’s a look back at all of Season 5. The memorable and not-so-memorable queens who have left us earlier this season. Is it a fun episode? Sure. Will you learn anything earth-shattering? No. Absolutely not. Will you be prompted to visit the vast array of RuPaul online media outlets to cast your vote for the winner of Season 5? Oh, you bet you will! So to that end, remember that you can declare your allegiance to #TeamJinkx, #TeamAlaska or #TeamRoxxxy at the … Continue reading
RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 5 is down to the final 4 — RoLaskaToxx and Jinkx Monsoon. Roxxxy being ‘mean’ to Jinkx & then Jinkx looks all forlorn. The shade of it all! At least that’s the way the episode is being edited. Half the time in this episode and the corresponding Untucked, the four contestants seem to be having a good time with each other. The mini-challenge is an old-fashioned bitchfest. With puppets. Well done on the cross-promotion, LOGO. The network seems to be getting the hang of this. The drag queens have to pull a puppet out of the … Continue reading
AT-TEN-TION! This week on RuPaul’s Drag Race the dragtestants need to makeover their drag sister. Those drag sisters are newly-out gay veterans. Some appear to be in their 20s or 30s, while the oldest is in his 60s. To pair up the family members, the drag queens need to go to drag booty camp for a military-style workout. Putting them through the paces is Storm from Barry’s Boot Camp. Fans in Southern California can enjoy his Butts & Legs class a couple of times today, so work it out. I live in Milwaukee, where no trainer, or anyone else, is … Continue reading
If you want to be surprised by last night’s Project Runway, do I have to tell you that you really need to stop reading this post right now? Ok, so I won’t be giving too much that a Project Runway fan of average intelligence couldn’t discern pretty quickly. But seriously, if you want the illusion of suspense to remain, don’t watch the video embedded below. Lifetime, can we talk? Just you & me. Come on over & sit on down next to me. I just want to talk to you as a fan. Someone who loves Project Runway, even when … Continue reading
