  1. Ha, that's interesting. Where did you get this from? I'm honestly asking because I thought they mostly drew on German expressionism, but I might be wrong. There's this very nice article about them and their inspirations: https://www.theguardian.com/books/2020/feb/27/kraftwerk-by-uwe-schutte-review In any case, we're veering waaaaay off topic, so I guess I'll just stop here. All I wanted to say is that It's fine if you don't find some comedians funny, everyone is entitled to their own opinions. I love Noel and Matt (and Kraftwerk) so I recognized that specific reference immediately, b
  2. On my first try. Where there's a will there's a way!
  3. But they don't even remotely look like Hitler! I personally adore Matt and Noel but I understand their humor might not be for everybody. But come on though, they would never do a parody of nazism on British television, so next time before calling them idiots do some research maybe? Apart from that, I love how nobody can pronounce Giuseppe's name correctly but I imagine after many years of living in England he has given up on correcting people. He and Crystelle are definitely my favorite.
  4. THANK YOU, I couldn't agree more. I feel like Ru is pushing for her to get ahead in the competition exactly like she did for Gottmik last year. And I'm sorry but while we're at it, in episode 2 Electra clearly deserved the win in that lipsync against Vanity Milan. I sometimes feel the judges' decisions are based more on other factors than on how well the queens actually perform in the show. Anyway, I haven't agreed with the judges much in the past seasons, but I'm starting to think this one takes the cake. Two wins in a row for Krystal Versace?! I thought she'd be the first one to go home!
  5. Do medications that list "suicidal ideation" as one of their side effects even exist? And aren't they immediately withdrawn from the market the first time someone acts upon it? The whole thing was just bizarre. In any case yeah, absolutely NOT Heather's fault. So did Masha also lose a daughter? Or was that her in a weird visual metaphor where she sees her child-self get run over by a car? Sometimes it's hard to tell with this show.
  6. I haven't read the book and don't want any spoilers, but does anyone know if there is ANY reason why Masha should be Russian? Because Nicole Kidman is doing a terrible job with the accent and she doesn't behave or look Russian at all, so I'm wondering if anything significant (other than me being less annoyed with her terrible acting) would change in the story if the character was, just sayin', Australian? Michael Shannon is great, as always, and I agree about the absurdity of being "starved" after half a day of not eating, which basically means skipping a meal, something that I'm sure ha
  7. This was the most boring episode in the whole season (and that's saying a lot, 'cause the other ones were certainly not peak TV entertainment). I don't know what Drag Tots is, the animations were awful and I thought it was too close to being simply a drag version of the Powerpuff Girls (which I was never a fan of to begin with) to find it even remotely interesting. Plus, I didn't understand what the challenge was (were they supposed to be superheroes? Cartoon characters? Because none of them looked like either.) Eureka looked like Olenna Tyrell from Game of Thrones, but not nearly as funn
  8. I'd add the comedy writers to that list. Skits on RuPaul used to have at least a few really good jokes and they were honestly fun to watch, and now they're just boring as hell. I also completely disagree with Kylie's win, I thought she was terrible. She's just not silly enough for the show, I don't think I've ever seen her laugh or make any kind of jokes in the workroom, she takes everything too seriously and she seems kind of disconnected from the rest of the group, so I really don't understand why she's still here (and Scarlet is not). Pandora, on the other hand, is my absolute favorite
  9. I honestly don't understand the hype for Karen from Finance. Is it only because she had been mentioned by some other drag queens before the Down Under season started? Why is she in the final four? I mean, I have nothing against her personally, she seems very nice, but she's been kind of middle-of-the-road for the entire season. I wish Maxi was still here instead of her.
  10. I only have three things to say (apart from the fact I'm very happy and relieved Symone won, she truly deserved it and had been my favorite all along): 1. if that's really Kandy Muse's mom, wow girl. How old was she when she had Kandy? Minus 10 years old? She looks like a teenager! 2. I can't help but think the spinning wheel was rigged, because the only way to make sure Kandy would be in the final two was to have her lipsync against Rosé. Gottmik wasn't exactly my favorite, but she deserved a spot in the final lipsync more than Kandy, who IMO didn't even deserve to be in the final 4
  11. steal the look: Wow, they are really willing to go to the greatest lengths to keep Kandy in. They just CAN'T eliminate her. I would wonder what that does to her self-esteem, but I don't think she realizes. Anyway, as much as I love Rosé, I agree that her runway look wasn't very flattering. I like the idea but the dress was a bit wonky and it made her and her neck look very short. At this point I really, really hope Symone wins.
  12. I don't understand why Symone and Kandy fought so hard over the role of Dominique when Dominique was clearly the character that had the least amount of screen time and lines and also the character it would be the least fun to play because she was the only queen who didn't shrink. Kandy's outfit looked like one of those shower curtains that have pockets where you can put hair products and brushes and stuff. It even had hooks. As a matter of fact if she had gone for the real, see-through thing and put shampoo, a loofah and a couple rubber duckies in the pockets she might have actually look
  13. Although I understand the concept of a pot-stirrer who keeps the audience watching, I still don't understand why the judges would agree to go out of their way and look this phony and incompetent just for the sake of pleasing the producers. I mean, if needs must they could still keep Kandy on without acting so fake! In any case, I still prefer to watch queens loving and supporting each other (see: RuPaul UK) than someone creating drama for no reason and being undeservedly kept on the show when someone else (see: basically everyone who was eliminated before Kandy) who deserved it more was sent p
  14. I couldn't agree more with all of this. When Ross Mathews said during the critiques that Kandy set the standard for everyone that followed her and "no one topped that" I wanted to cry. I think what happened is the judges decided beforehand (like 5 episodes ago) that Kandy needed to win a challenge because she was the only one who had never won, so they said "ok, the first time she doesn't blatantly suck we're going to give her a win." So when this roast came about, they were like "ok you guys, this is our (only) chance" and then tried to laugh as hard as they could to give the impression
  15. what. just. happened. I was already a bit upset when Ellie didn't make it to the top three. I agree she wasn't ready for the crown but I would've FOR SURE put her above LC. Tayce and Bimini were the only true contenders for the crown, and I wouldn't have cared who won between them two, I love them both. But Lawrence Cheney?! Why? Well I guess Ru has been enamoured with her since day one, set her heart on it and refused to see anything that happened afterwards. I hope this doesn't mean we're (slowly, very slowly) heading for a Kandy win in the US race. Other than that, I loved this s
