Definitely agree that this format takes all the drama out of lsfyl. I was hoping the show would pick up after the intro episode but then a bunch of this episode got eaten up by adore being stupid, so I'm pretty disappointed from that angle.

Also, as the founder and sole member of the Bring Back Santino Rice Fan Club, I...

Nah I likes Santino too, and thought his high-fashion biased critiques were useful.

RuPaul is not a drag king or a faux queen so why on earth would she just a show about them? Besides Michelle Visage is the biggest faux queen around so what's the point.

Because Ru is ready to pass down the crown whereas Michelle will take her to the grave.

I suppose I just feel like maybe people should stop trying to link everything together like drag queens must be inclusive of all things with "drag" or "queen" when in reality it's not as if any of the 3 mentioned categories run in the same circles too often.

Exactly, the run off part. I've never known a drag queen who didn't find most faux queens a bit like the obsessed kid in high school who follows you around liking everything you like.

No insult intended to faux queens, and I adore my drag queen friends, but let's not pretend they're a bunch of inclusive, hand-holding types except with other queens. And even with other queens not so much.

Well it's not like drag kings came into being in the 90s. If there were enough people clamoring to watch them, they would have a show.

I think the general concensus is that for the most part there's no sense of whimsy with drag kings, like there is with the queens. It's not compelling television.

Anyway, this is a silly argument. This is Ru's show and she worked her rear end off to get it, let her decide who she wants to highlight. Her judgement got her this far.

also part of what works about drag race is catty gay men being catty. nobody wants to watch a drag king show to see exciting behind the scenes footage of who's moving into whose house at the end of the season

Lmao way too accurate.

So can someone please explain their love of Tatianna? I've gone through the past few pages of posters explaining how happy they are to have her back and I just go "huh"? I've never found her funny for more than a line or a look, her drag feels low rent, and she comes off more bitchy than PhiPhi (ok, not this past episode PhiPhi).

Did I miss an episode or something?

I've been convincing myself that people are falling for her redemption story, because I can't find anything particularly impressive about her either.

drat, I didn't think Alaska could sour me on her, but she really came close this episode. That was just an ugly (and I'm guessing desperate) side of her.

I agree that Alaska is, by far, the most polished and likely the most talented of the bunch.

I just always get into that internal argument of "yeah but who needs this more?" and I'm not sure if Alaska really needs the boost to her career.

Bianca has also been showing up in more and more gay porns on tube sites. Usually as the sassy waitress who gives the foxy customer some attitude right before he finds the glory hole in the men's room.

I'm one of them she even got a blowjob through the glory hole but it was a very poorly special effectsed other dude's penis. It didn't even line up hardly at all but it seems like a weird thing to do like I can't imagine selecting a porn to buy and thinking "of my favorite drag queen is in this the sex must be super hot"

I thought Bianca was funny on rpdr but her output since has made me wonder if that was just a fluke

I think part of it is that she just works better in small doses. When I watched her stand-up special a few months back by the end her voice had gotten so grating that it was hard to pay attention to what was coming out of her mouth. Also, her jokes mostly landed with a thud, which makes me think she'd make an amazing emcee or host but more stage time than that is wasted.

Still love her, though.
