  1. Aww, see...I'm into them, so I feel like Courtney does have feelings for Z she's just not acknowledging them yet. I think they're adorable together, though, so, totally biased. With respect to Katie, I agree she's a crap manager, but did she really refuse to punish Lexie? From what I remember, she tried to bring it up and Sandy shut her down hard, then they had some conversation about second chances and whatnot. I feel like Sandy's at fault for all of the drama- including whatever Delaney did wrong on deck. Who puts someone in that position as, like, a make-a-wish kind of moment? I
  2. A season with so many explicit "this is my platform" moments definitely factored in what type of person the winner would represent, but I think it could have just as easily gone to a Big Queen so they could check that box. The next regular season will probably do that, but hopefully they'll edit it so it feels earned. I still think Kylie deserved the win based on her talent. I'm just cynical about the show.
  3. I thought the right person won. I also think they were smart to eliminate Trinity before this challenge. Here's hoping next season incorporates actual criticism. Watching Holland made me realize that's what I resent about the US version lately. They either demolish people or pretend they're perfect. It's annoying. Did anyone else totally forget Shea had won the last season? Also, why couldn't their verses have just been fun? It shouldn't always have to be about a platform.
  4. As a trainer, I love this kind of episode, because I can use it in class. It illustrates so many bad management moments without being a cheesy training video. Working around the problem of Lexi instead of dealing with it, having conversations with subordinate employees you probably shouldn't, being in a management position without the will to make decisions, the impact of a leader who checks out but won't let go (that's how I see Captain Sandy- she half-knows a lot and tries to manage from that perspective)- such a wealth of "what not to do." I also sort-of enjoyed the clunky way they in
  5. They did one of my favorite Rusicals ever, and I again appreciated legit criticism on the runway, even when the topic was so personal to the contestants. I felt respected as a viewer, like they trusted me to get that you can compliment and criticize.
  6. Agreed. I feel like they can simplify this whole thing, and make it fun again, by featuring a couple queens each episode (a little info on what they've been doing, tell us whatever sad stuff some viewers apparently need to know to relate to these characters), and ending each episode with a lip sync battle or runway walk off. Get to a final four that way, have a fun finale where they do whatever it is they do best to show off that all of these queens are super talented, call it a day. Who's the target audience for this show now, anyway?
  7. How would that time off work with guest stars? Were they just spliced back in like they were there for lip syncs after they'd appeared? They'd totally do that.
  8. On the bright side if this is received well maybe we'll get away from skits or madlibs to promote weird cartoons, and we'll get more showcases. All stars arguably should just be them let loose with a budget- like they all do for a living. That could be awesome. Plus, this has to be cheaper for them, aside from licensing songs.
  9. Didn't the last comeback special end with a non elimination? Would they really repeat that? If Twitter is to be believed this was the best episode ever. I'm so out of sync, but man am I glad this forum exists. Thanks for a place to dislike something without being dismissed as a hater.
  10. I credit the small cast size for preventing the teams thing that sometimes happens. They can spin the originals off onto a show that's more...overtly a Golden Girls reference.
  11. It's hard for me to think of Silky as redeemed because of this story. https://www.pinknews.co.uk/2021/01/06/drag-race-miss-vanjie-sily-nutmeg-canache-partying-face-mask-coronavirus/ I definitely think she's a better performer than I did before the season started, but part of me is like...she should have done well. It was literally the only thing she had to do. It's hard for me to be that impressed- not just because it's her, but because the whole thing feels tilted. I mean, I've seen Yara live. Given a day to rest and prep a performance for one song...wouldn't have been a conte
  12. I want to believe Erika. I also think the meeting with the others was reasonable, and I'm glad they aired it. I don't get why Erika is not just selling him out instead of reinforcing the story that seems to be from lawyers defending him. Love, maybe, but he cheated and was mean. She didn't play it right. More importantly, did Crystal and Sutton casually agree? That deserves a beat.
  13. Thank you! I smell shenanigans. This is the best story, giving Silky redemption (although she was promoting a club during quarantine right, so...), and probably giving the last queen out the ticket back in (with a win, finally). But, I feel like she had so much more prep time it's absurd. She had a guitar on the floor for gosh sakes. Waving flags around is not the same as performing well. And someone probably inflated that costume for her. Whatever. It's a game show where the sole criteria for success is impressing Ru, and we're almost done. At least this style of episode has minima
  14. I actually like most of this cast, and that it's a smaller group, but I also wouldn't be mad at a purge.
  15. I can't handle Ramona anymore. It's not cute, because it's not hard to shut the fuck up and listen to people sometimes. I don't get it. I think I'm mad at myself as a viewer for not...I get that these shows have been segregated, since jump street. I shouldn't have just watched anyway because the drama is fun with a glass of wine. The woman talking about her experience giving birth was, what, the fourth Black person ever to get to talk on this show? Why not just let her finish a frickin sentence?
