Ooh lots of new detailed write-ups I'll need to check out. ❤️ 

 

Thank you! :hug:  Oh, I thought you were somewhat. I think you would enjoy it.  :yes: NPH is incredible in that role and you'd love it. I can't really think of a show to compare it to, but it's a fun one to watch. I don't think of it as a comedy like a sitcom, but I think dark comedy is the perfect description of it. Really? I posted so many funny gifs though. bye2.gif.7960d44992e1eeff806cdce1d9856c2 I think you'd get it if you watched. The general storyline is drama, but it is full of humor and overly dramatic. 

 

That's an accurate representation of what goes on the whole time. :lmao:  Thank youuu. :hug:❤️ 

I hope you will like mine. :’( Gah just realized i got another one to do. :lmao: 

 

You’re welcome. :hug: Oooh I’m sure i heard of it but I can’t really recall? Ooh wow, you think soo? Maybe I would, hmmm. I did like what I saw from NPH as it’s sooo different from him. Also forgot to say, super surprised ASOUE outlasted How I Met your Mother here haha. Ooh ahhh ok i see - yeah it’s not an obvious kind of comedy but hmm dark comedy. I heard of this genre but it’s interesting. Ooh yea I know you did, haha. Some of it I didn’t get. :ph34r: But this last sentence makes sense.

 

LMAOOO omgg wow. That always cracks me up when characters are like that in shows. :lmao: You’re welcome!

RuPaul’s Drag Race is a reality television competition which has been airing since 2009, and currently in its 12th season. It first aired on Logo TV - it quickly began the highest rated television show for Logo TV. Upon its mainstream success, the show made a move to VH1 in 2017. Its success can also be measured by its spin-off shows such as RuPaul’s Drag U, RuPaul’s Drag All Stars, Untucked, and RuPaul’s Drag Race UK.  The show won 4 consecutive Emmys for Outstanding Host for a Reality or Reality-Competition Program, and for Outstanding Reality-Competition Program which is impressive. 

 

Now onto the show, it follows the legendary drag queen known as RuPaul in the search of Amerca’s next drag superstar. On the show, RuPaul is the host/mentor/judge/producer where he is joined by other judges such as Michelle Visage, Carson Kressley, Ross Matthews, Santino Rice, and guest judges.  


Each week of the competition, the queens must compete into mini challenges where they must perform a different task with limited time to get repeated (e.g.: the first challenge is always a photoshoot, the reading challenge known as “the library is open”). The winner of this mini-challenge is often rewarded with an advantage when it comes to the main challenge. After the mini challenge, the queen compete in the maxi challenge of the week which varies from improvisation or acting, making a runway, lipsync, and doing a makeover - the winner of the mini-challenge is often rewarded with a prize such as a vacation, cruise, cosmetic items or designer clothing. 

 

Following the mini-challenge, the queens are judges based on their performance as well as their look on the runway where they have wear an outfit following a theme that is assigned to them - RuPaul often will start the runway with “the category is…” which is a nod to the ball scene in New York in the 1970s & 1980s, mainly.  And once the queens receive their critiques, they are either in the top, safe, or in the bottom - the 2 queens in the bottom will compete in a Lipsync for your life where they lipsync to an iconic song, sometimes from a guest judge. The winner of lipsync gets to “shantay you stay” while the eliminated queen must “sashay away”. 

 

And now, if you thought this write-up was over then you’re mistaken as I will be doing a quick overview of each season which will feature some iconic gifs, runway looks, and lip syncs of that cycle. Start your engine because this write-up will be something else as I wanted to be #extra. 

 

 

SEASON 1

119-1199167_rupauls-drag-race-season-1-promo.jpg

 

The first season of RuPaul Drag Race is often known as the season with a terrible filter. It's also the forgotten season - the first season was essentially a pilot for the show. There was 9 drag queens, and the winner of this season is Bebe Zahara Benet. It's not necessarily my favourite season but when I think of the first season, I think about;
 

  • Victoria Porkchop being the first queen to be eliminated, and therefore becoming a meme queen.
  • Akashia's fall on the runway
  • Shannel losing her head piece during LFYL
  • Ongina revealing that she is HIV+, following the Mac-Viva Glam commercial.
  • Shannel nominating herself for elimination, because she couldn't handle the criticism. 
  • Tammie Brown vs. RuPaul during the reunion
     

And now here some quick highlight of the season featuring memorable lipsync for your life, runway looks, and some memorable moments from the first season.

SEASON 2

latest?cb=20140111092301

 

The 2nd season premiered in 2010 - while the show did not have the same viewership as recent seasons, many of the queens on the season are beloved by the fandom. As a whole, the season isn't as memorable as other season mainly due to the fact that there's barely any iconic moment from the season, and the runway looks were still a bit basic. But despite all of this, there were memorable moments;
 

  • Morgan McMichaels vs. Mystique Summers in Untucked - their fight gave us "B!tch, I am from Chicago!"
  • The introduction of Snatch Game where Tatianna slayed as Britney Spears. And kudos to Pandora Boxxx for her Carol Channing's impersonation, as well Jessica Wild's version of RuPaul. 
  • The library is officially opened - we received some iconic read, notable Jujubee's read of her fellow contestants.
  • Jujubee being wasted while performing "Black Velvet"
  • Raven being a lipsync assassin - she loss the finale lipsync to Tyra Sanchez but we do not talk about that. 
  • Tatianna vs. Tyra Sanchez in Untucked
  • Tatianna vs. Raven at the reunion

SEASON 3

6658351_orig.png?273

 

The 3rd season aired in 2011, and it remains one of the strongest season in my opinion. This season also introduced us to Michelle Visage as a permanent judge. The season was filled with drama, memorable challenges, iconic runway looks and legendary drag queens. Here are some of the highlight of the season, in my opinion; 

 

  • Shangela being the first returnee after being eliminated during the 1st episode in the 2nd season.
  • Memorable challenges like Queens in Space, Fitness Video, and the Morning News Show. 
  • Shangela vs. Mimi ImFurst in Untucked
  • Mimi Imfurst picking up India Farrah during their LSFYL
  • Snatch Game: Stacy Layne Matthew as Mo'nique,  Raja as Tyra Banks whom smized too hard, Alexis Mateo's version of Alicia Keys, Manila Luzon as Imelda Marcos, and Yara Sofia trying to do a British accent. 
  • Alexis opening up about her love life with a military man during the patriotic message challenge, and where she delivered an iconic runway look.
  • The formation of a clique known as Heathers (Raja, Carmen, Manila, and Delta)
  • The iconic tullegate from Untucked.
  • Raja & Manila dominating the runway - the perfect top 2 for the season.

A Sasha & Shea double crowning would’ve been perfect for S9’s storyline. 😘

Just read your "A Series Of Unfortunate Event" write-up, @miss denise! Very detailed and loved reading it - although not a show that I interest in but maybe I will eventually watch it if I run out of shows :haha:

Thank you! Everyone saying it doesn't interest them. :broken: 😢 I really think it's something a lot of people would enjoy. Hopefully you do check it out sometime!

Agreed! S3 is up there for me - I could have put more runway looks but was limited with what I could find :haha:

 

But such a good season, esp that top 2! Even though I love that Top 4 :wub:

Not going to lie - rewatching S9 and doing the writeup made me realize how much I like Shea! So I would have been fine with that outcome

I know I will! I should read it a little later tonight. ❤️ So do I! 

 

I'm sure of that much since I thought you knew I watched it, but I thought you heard more about it too. Yes, I do. :wub: It's awesome! Oh, well I don't know what to say about that. 😛 But I know the ending of that show was not well received at all. Yes.  Oh? I thought they made sense. 😢 But you'd get it if you watched. ❤️ 

 

lol. Count Olaf would show up in the millions of disguises and the adults were just clueless. :wub: So funny.
