Continuing the international expansion of Drag Race, it's time for Canada's Drag Race!



Yes, it's time for yet another edition of the series outside the current dumpster fire that is the United States! This production appears to be more in line with Drag Race Thailand, where it's not explicitly linked to the main series (unlike Drag Race UK). That doesn't mean that the various elements of the show won't be in play, expect the same show just with less Ru and more of a Maple Leaf flair!

Your Judges:
- Brooke Lynn Hytes (Runner-Up, Season 11)
- Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman
- Stacey McKenzie
- Traci Melchor

DRUK was excellent, and I can't wait to see what this batch of queens serves up for us.

Episodes are Thursday evenings at 9 pm Eastern on Crave in Canada and WoW Presents Plus in the US, see your local providers for more information for other broadcast times.

Be aware that since we're using a single thread for all Drag Race shows that we're going to have a combo of AS5 and CANDR conversation going on at the same time. As always, previews should be in spoiler tags but once the episode is broadcast it's fair game. Be kind and fierce, bbs!

It may be our last Drag Race for quite some time...

Yeah US doesn't get Drag Race on their subscription service. Not sure about Drag Race Canada. They have a big list of DR country availability accessible from their front page.

It had Canada, UK, and one season of Thailand. But, I don't think that's enough to justify paying for a subscription otherwise. The US series is so difficult to watch if you're not watching it live or buying a season pass that I thought at least I'd be able to watch it all in one place. I think Hulu currently has some seasons? But I think that's the only place available to watch it otherwise right now.

We're about to run into this problem with All Stars in my group rewatch. UK Netflix has all the main seasons, but it doesn't have All Stars except for 4 and 5. US Hulu has All Stars 1 and 2, but not 3, 4, or 5. I have of seasons 1-7, and all stars 1 and 2, but after that they are impossible to find anywhere.
I legit don't know how we're going to watch All Stars 3. I haven't even thought about Canada yet but I'm sure that's going to be just as difficult once it's over. You'd think a cultural phenomenon like this would be readily available but alas.

WoW Presents Plus is the only way to watch CanDR in the States. I don't see keeping my subscription once Canada is done, but I'll have it the next two months.

It looks like the last 3 season for both shows are available at VH1.com if you have a log in for that.

The Werq the World series is really good and worth a watch. That's about it. Wow Presents Plus is a pretty lovely service.

One of the worst and best things about going to see strippers in Canada is the sad lil walk they do around the stage with their magnet on a rope to pick up all the loonies and toonies that got thrown.
