Apparently Shangela is hosting with Ross Matthews on Logo this year instead of Michelle Visage. (I still miss Michelle Collins... she was made for this. I know her and Carson didn't sit well with the viewers.)

preview for next week!

the vixen's level of pettiness continues to make me swoon and screech in equal measure. "but you attacked... my dream". bitch, please! just like highlander, there can be only one. nevertheless, eureka continues to annoy. "i didn't have a problem with vixen to begin with". my eyes nearly rolled the gently caress out of my head.

kameron getting some focus! holy poo poo! she seems more and more like a final three competitor now, especially given this week's cher-themed challenge. the michaels dynasty lives on.

this mini-challenge might be the best one in the whole god drat show. ru still says the technically-correct-but-still-weird-to-me 'jif'. i love it. i love her. she seems to legitimately crack up at monet's diss as well. WE GET A VANJIE IN THE FIRST TEN MINUTES OF THE EPISODE. asia is the queen of shade, seriously and god drat i love her - but it gives me life to see her get accidentally for-real smacked in the face by ru. god drat that's funny.

another rusical - this time with live singing! hurrah! now even if when they get terrible, terrible lyrics, it should still be entertaining and queens have a chance to redeem or doom themselves. good stuff

I honestly never thought that a contestant could be more of a downer than Nina Bo'nina Banana Fofana Osama Bin Laden Brown (boom boom boom).

But now we have The Vixen.

I wonder if they'll keep the runtime for 11, or if it's just a season 10 landmark thing. Either way I hope they take some cues from the editing. Having mini challenges and more time spent with Ru interacting with the girls makes it feel so much more like a proper season of Drag Race.

this season, i've found find myself wishing Survivor would adopt the 90m format. there's so many cast members who never get any airtime, who feel completely underdeveloped, and entire plot points that disappear because of the tight cut needed for telly.

the extended 90m episode gives you time to think about characters that you might not otherwise. everyone gets a look-in.

that said, i think RPDR has generally had a pretty solid editing team, even when it was shorter eps.

The editing has always been good and delightfully shady, but the earlier seasons had episodes the same length of seasons 7-8-9 and still had time for mini challenges and werkroom Ru. As for runway/critique time in those seasons, I blame all the scripted challenges and musicals. They always run long so we get a truncated runway more often than we should.

Also, a lot of the time the runway was the challenge, so there was naturally more time to cover everything.

Holy Moly! DARKSEID IS!


Frankly I think Vixen is being unfairly piled on. Ive soured on Eureka (which sucks because overall shes a strong if not one-note competitor) because she outright stated she purposely says certain things to get a rise out of people. Oh, its a competition, people shouldnt take it personally. But Eureka - or the producers who chose what to show us - keeps making word choices that push Vixens buttons. Vixen was very hurt, and oh, dont the producers WANT to see that explosive vulnerability on the show? Its an extremely dicey thing but the overall attitude towards Vixen on social media is very willfully ignorant of what were being shown and ignorant of what we know to be true: that we NEVER get the full, true story of what happens in filming. Its a mess, and not a fun go back to Party City mess either.

Between Rus ignorant trans remarks and my being more aware of how the show tries to manipulate my perspective as a viewer (much like Eureka tries to manipulate the narrative by poking for a reaction) I keep questioning why I return to this show every season.

Miss Vanjie needs to come back, sending her home was total bullshittery.

Vixen is being piled on because shes being an rear end in a top hat. She lashes out every chance she gets, claims people wont let her speak when she steamrolls everyone, and is insistent that she gets along with everyone but Eureka when thats clearly not the case.

She hasnt brought anything to the competition other than constant antagonism and that one gorgeous peacock dress.

the extended 90m episode gives you time to think about characters that you might not otherwise. everyone gets a look-in.

As someone who has seen 35 of the 36 seasons of Survivor, it doesn't matter how long the episodes are, it would have the same effect. For most of the show's history they were able to fit in all contestants into each episode, and up through maybe the 15th season I was able to remember the name of every single person to compete on the show.

But as the show has gone on, Jeff Probst and the other producers have instead focused on macho men doing macho things, or any contestant making big moves. If you're not one of those two, you're simply not going to be shown. It started to become obvious what was going on when they stopped talking to everybody at the reunion. There was even that one season where they didn't even have everyone on stage.

If they extended the episodes to 90 or even 120 minutes, you're not going to get more of Sebastian who I'm not even sure has spoken a single word on camera all season. You're just going to get an addition 30-60 minutes of Dom, Wendel and Laurel.

Of course, it doesn't help the fact that this is one of the worst playing casts they've had on in a long time, or that this season is relying on a gimmick to an absurd extreme.

I live(d) for Vixen but she's been stirring poo poo since day one. Lest we forget her shoving her nose in Aquaria and Cracker's business and repeatedly trying to gently caress with people for her own entertainment when she has the power to pick teams.

She's made a lot of excellent points about how fans view queens of colour on this show. But she is also a super bitch.

i agree; the vixen still rules.

the most moving part of the last ten seasons of untucked is vixen getting a message from home, then crying saying she wasn't angry, she was hurt. that poo poo was real. she also - quite accurately, as far as her footage in the show is concerned - said she only cries when people say nice things about her; the rest of the time she gets mad.

meanwhile, eureka spent the first three episodes crying because she wasn''t automatically doing as good in challenges as she wanted. bah!!! give me one hundred vixens. i'd rather her explosive, irrational temper every day of the week.

you're very right. i want them to take bigger, more substantial risks with survivor. all they do is introduce new idols, new plot gimmicks. they play the editing incredibly safe - after thirty five season, they still don't know how to make a goat compelling, unless they're a ZaNy ChArAcTeR like phil shepherd. it's very very frustrating. i think there's plenty of life left in the survivor tank, but it's all in the NZ and australian seasons now.

this is very off-topic though. drag race is life!!
