Default Queer Eye (Netflix Reboot).


I noticed that there wasn’t a thread for one of the best reality shows on Netflix right now and wanted to right this wrong.

YouTube Video


I am properly obsessed. Shout out to solo player sab for kicking my ass and getting me to give the show a go already (I planned on watching it, I swear).

I have been gushing over this Fab Fivesome since Season 1, and now, having finally finished Season 2, I needed to expand on these feels and carry that love over to you lot.

Does anyone else watch this? What have been your highlight episodes these past two seasons? Who are your faves of the five? Did you watching the originals Queer Eye? If so, how do you think this reboot compares? The Five have been talking a lot about wanting to makeover folks from all sorts of walks of life, and not just ‘straight guys’. What kind of person would you be interested in seeing them makeover? What are your favourite things about this show in general? Let’s talk, people!

For those who don’t have Netflix, I hope you can see this YouTube video of them making over some randy in Australia. This is pretty much the format of the regular show, too. I can’t handle the sweetness T_T

Oh, and Jonathan has a podcast called ‘Getting Curious’. If anyone’s curious.

^H Y P E D

I desperately need it back in my life T_T

And bc I’m the type of person to answer her own questions lmfao (half of them anyway).


What have been your highlight episodes these past two seasons?
Omg
Season 1 Faves
Tom - from the first episode. When he told the Five, ‘You guys are making me cry’ I lost it, bruh. It was a strong episode to start out with as it really set the tone methinks!

AJ - My heart really broke for AJ. Always having to hide a part of yourself from your loved ones because you’re afraid of what might change. Dammit! The out scene with his step mum fucked me up.


Season 2 Faves
Tammye - “You know Mama loves you, right?”
“Yes.”
“But Mama owes you an apology, because she has not loved you unconditionally

That is all. And Bobby’s story. Noooooo. T-T

I actually have to go back and rewatch this season, I feel like I’m forgetting everyone


Who are your faves of the five?
From the go, it was Jonathan and Tan, but after watching several of their group interviews, Antoni and Karamo have grown on me considerably. Bobby is getting there (I definitely think he’s under-appreciated).

What are your favourite things about this show in general?

BREAKING DOWN TOXIC MASCULINITY AND REACHING OUT TO COMMUNITIES THAT HAVE HISTORICALLY SHUNNED MINORITY GROUPS. These men are doing such important work breaking down barriers and combating stereotypes and spreading the love! And I love how the show strongly promotes a self-love vibe and just tolerating folks for who they are. And just how they drag these people from dark places who just weren’t feeling themselves and now they have life again, like. Like, it gives me all the feels. I want a fab five hug now.

I've seen every episode and I'm genuinely surprised by how much I enjoyed it. Jonathan says shit like me (baby bobbers is struggs to func) and is otherwise hilarious. To my surprise I really like Antoni. I don't dislike any of them, but my top two are definitely Jonathan and Antoni.

The show got nominated for an Emmy too.



My favorite episode might be the first one from season 2, that was emotional as fuck. I've enjoyed every episode except for the one with the lying gamer guy.

Th Fab 5 said it best themselves what the difference between the original and the reboot is; tolerance for the original, acceptance for the reboot.

Who's my favorite character? Well....

I love it so much. And I love all the guys. I think maybe they go like Antoni, Tan, Karamo, Bobby, Jonathan for me though ... but like that's loved to loved I adore them all no hate here.

And yeah I agree about the first episode of the second season I fucking sobbed like a bitch and I never cry it was a real trip!

They got nominated for 4!

When I think about my favorite thing about the show, I'd say what Fancy had written is pretty spot on for me, too. From challenging and redefining masculinity to breaking down the barriers that set people apart..and doing so in a way that is just so wholesome and heartfelt. I find it so impressive.

I also find myself EXTREMELY motivated to clean up my mess of a life, so, there's that too

Favorite Episodes:
Season 1, Episode 1 (You Can't Fix Ugly) - (SPOILER) Tom is just the cutest man. And of course, his love story with Abby is just adorable. Queer Eye was extremely smart for placing this episode first in the series because it certainly has that hook-factor.
S1E4 (To Gay or Not Too Gay) - (SPOILER) AJ's coming out scene with his step mom just destroyed me. Watching him break down was just so incredibly real and you can just feel the anguished relief (does that makes sense?) that was pouring out.
S2E1 (God Bless Gay) - (SPOILER) Ok seriously who doesn't love Mama Tammye? I loved this episode for so many reasons...the fact that it was the first time they featured a woman, that we see a mother apologize to her gay son for reacting the way that she did to his coming out, that we learn about Bobby's troubled relationship with religion, that we see the Fab Five so smitten with adoration for Mama Tammye...it's just so heartfelt and I swear I cried like five times throughout the whole episode.
S2E5 (Sky's the Limit) - (SPOILER) This one hit really hard for me because it made me think of an old friend who was trans that we lost to depression. I found this episode to be very heavy in a lot of ways but I really loved how it brought trans issues to the forefront and even featured the Fab Five - themselves - struggling slightly with the concept and wanting to understand more about Skyler's plight. Considering how often LGBTQ is lumped together, it's easy to be misguided into thinking gay men or women automatically understand and empathize with the issues facing transgender people. My heart really ached for Skyler and I'm really glad the Fab Five tread into these waters. And also TODERICK HALL YAAAAS.

I got my friend to watch it all and she sent me a message saying "I mean, do you cry at every episode or is it just me??" and I don't cry at every episode, but I've definitely teared up lots. I can't pinpoint specifically when other than S1E4 and S2E1. That dialogue from the mum really got me, I know Fancy posted it above but:

“You know Mama loves you, right?”
“Yes.”
“But Mama owes you an apology, because she has not loved you unconditionally”
Powerful.

The cynic in me questions how staged it could be though - I think regardless the show is doing a lot of good but I'm always a little bit icked out when some private family moments are happening with a camera crew in the room filming every bit. I think it's pretty genuine though, based on the reaction of the mother of the Iranian dude who was clearly furious but hid it a bit because there were cameras lol.

Obligatory

^Yeah, funny you should mention that, because I had a similar thought during the episode with the Trump-supporting cop (S1E3 IIRC) where spoiler ahead Karamo and the cop are having a long conversation in the car about tensions between police and the black community. Seems like there were some buzzwords that might've been planted by production; the dialogue, the conclusions they drew, even the cop throwing in 'black lives mattered' like it didn't quite roll off his tongue all that naturally—it just felt kind of forced and after school special-y. Particularly after that scene in the beginning of the episode where Karamo was pulled over by the other cop as a joke, which was obviously staged by production and is a pretty fucked up prank to begin with, whether it was supposed to be a pre-cursor to the aforementioned conversation or not.

And okay, I’m going to be the hundredth person that says this but that episode with Mama Tammye fucked. me. right. up.
