Anyone remember how long it usually takes after the show has ended before its up on Hulu? If I recall 7 was on around mid-November? That's only a really poor guess though.

I'm really excited for this season too. The cast looks pretty drat solid and interesting.

So hype for this, mainly because the team behind the show must be super pumped to not repeat last year's shitshow.

I really want the inside T on what on earth was going on backstage before and during the show last season. Heck, I want the inside T on every season, period. (When does Willam's book drop again?) I'd especially love the full origin story, Season 1 is so clearly drag-on-a-dime that it continues to be unbelievably charming. I was hooked from the moment they decided the first photoshoot challenge was to just have the queens lay on the hood of a car while they sprayed water on them. :allears:

Most likely the Season 7 mess was just a natural result of poor casting decisions in creating that particular mix of queens while messing with the Untucked format, though.

Anyway, onwards and upwards! :dance:

Quinctia has the right of this, imo. The problem was the mismatch between the queens and the challenges. It would have succeeded as a fashion-focused season.

I actually thought the Untucked format was the best thing about the whole fiasco. Smoking ramp 4lyfe.

You're right, it's as much about the challenges as it is the queens, and the first episode's fashion challenge is instantly memorable because so many of the girls really turned it out before immediately beginning the onslaught of GROUP ACTING CHALLENGES :argh:

Same as last season, I think, available through World of Wonder's YouTube channel tomorrow, broadcast on Canadian TV (and possibly others) after the show like normal. The format will likely be the same, but they'll probably have made some quality of life upgrades and maybe made it look a little less bare backstage now that the Realness theme is gone? We'll see. Either way those couches looked uncomfortable.

Aaaaactually, Logo just recently changed how the episode viewing works. It's not available unless you have a cable subscription with Logo on it.

It was surprisingly bait and switch considering how Tempest was telegraphed last season.

Also UNTUCKED SPOILERS Bob and Derrick are really tearing into each other in a super entertaining way, I am here for this rivalry despite how predictable it is. They have great rival chemistry

EDIT: Thinking about it more, their differences feel fundamental and philosophical about how they look at and think about drag so it's not super personal but it's still fiery. :getin:

Just curious, how common is Logo among cable companies? Time Warner has had it here (central Ohio) since the late 90's, and before that the only people I knew that had it got it through satellite.

I guess I just thought that if you had cable, you had Logo.

First 10 minutes of the next episode were up on Logo's servers, featuring:


- Naomi coming for Laila in a serious way and Laila admitting she needs to step up her game
- A simply adorable mini-challenge
- Acid Betty getting fully slotted into the villain role
- Chi Chi clashing with Acid
- Thorgy spilling what sounded like honest tea about Acid's reputation back in New York that IMHO cements their rivalry that was hinted at in the first episode


All really delicious stuff proving this season isn't a one episode wonder, holy poo poo it's all happening :dance:

In my experience Logo required a specialty entertainment/extra cable package. Just having the basic cable package like most people usually isn't enough to do it.

Disasterrific.

I've found that the ios app still works* for me, logged in. I don't know if you can still do it, but you could choose xfinity as your provider and log in with facebook, and you could watch. I still can.

* The logo ios app, much like their website viewing plugin, does not stream properly; I wanted to watch a bit of Season 1 this weekend...it took me twice as long as the runtime to get through episode 1, and then I gave up. My favorite part was coming back from the commercial break before the runway judging for the app to suddenly be showing me part of a random episode from Season 7. So it works as much as it ever did. You can probably muddle your way through an episode if desperate. If you do get the app to work, you should be able to watch live. Or, if they get slammed during the initial airings, there are often repeat airings of episodes late, late on Monday nights. For me, live streaming of what was currently on the channel has worked slightly better than on demand streaming in the past.

...we haven't ever had Ace of Base, I don't think. Their couple of well-known singles would've made fun choices. Perhaps when they're done scraping the bottom of the Paula Abdul barrel.

I was a bit sad at the quality of the lipsync, given Applause is one of my favorites.

This isn't Middle Earth, Quentin. There aren't enough noble quests to go around.

I don't have Logo with my basic Comcast package in Oregon, but I just watched the episode on the Logo website. :shrug:

I've done a 180 on Kim Chi. Totally adore her now.

I still love Bob, Acid Betty, Dax, Thorgy, and Cynthia is adorable but not long for this season. I'll put a dollar down on her being out before Snatch Game. She's cute and silly, but she's not great.

I want to see what, if anything, else Derrick can do. I liked Robbie in the confessionals, but I want to see a different style. I assumed that Laila was the first one out from the challenge talk with Ru, but she worked it in the lip sync, so maybe she's got some more depth. Overall, that was a strong start for the season, and I'm very eager to watch more.

what a humorous anecdote.

Okay, apparently Logo only does the cable thing for past seasons? It prompted me to log in when I tried rewatching season 6 earlier this week, but this episode gave me no issues outside of the usual with the Logo player. :shrug:
Regardless, I don't think my cable company is getting Logo any time soon. Rural town local cable companies probably aren't reaching for LGBT content.

Whoever said they wanted a show of Cynthia and Tammie talking about nothing is a genius and I want it funded yesterday.
Dax is a loving dork and I love him for it, but I don't see him lasting very long, unfortunately.
Bob, Acid Betty, and Kim Chi didn't disappoint, I was smiling basically constantly whenever Bob was onscreen.
Robbie is absolutely not winning, he and Jinkx have incredibly similar drag styles and there's no way reality TV would crown something so similar so soon.

What the holy gently caress was that lipsync?

Acid Betty is a super oval office, and I can smell serious competition this season.

I hope Kim Chi has a better strut than what she served.

Bob is hilarious, and should never shut her pie hole.

Derrick seems sweet, but spaced out.

CLFontaine is goddesses

I'm not so sure about the rest, Dax's look was real meh for me. Naomi has real potential, but should have been more clever about the boat. Thorgy's wig was thirsty. Robbie seemed like a more bitchy Jinx, and I hate to say that because I am from Seattle.

I am happy Layla won. Is anyone else getting a lazy spooky vibe? It's like if Adore had a goth pot head little sister.

I'm turning against Bob early. I can see Acid B's point about it getting thin if his joke ratio sucks and its his only way of interacting so he forces it on people. But his runway was very good so he'll be around forever. Hopefully Betty vs Bob on future Untuckeds is fireworks rather than squibs.

Also I was really impressed with how much Derrick resembles my second favourite Britney Spears photo.



How dare Michelle try to snuff out his Brit impression so early on. Was Chad given the same treatment?

I'm still not sure how Cynthia Lee Fontaine sailed through the runway segment. Was that corset with hot glued candy good in a manner that was lost on me?
