Wow, so that was interesting, huh?
Opinions seem split on the decision to, well, split the premiere in two parts. In theory, it sounded great–more screen time for all these fierce queens! And what a twist! Can you imagine what will happen when the two groups finally meet?
But ultimately, I think it shrunk the scale of the episode’s drama. Or maybe it’s because I watched most of the episode on my tiny iPhone screen when the preview showed up on the Logo TV app!
Even with just seven queens, it was really Adore and Gia’s show, wasn’t it? Their constant commentary ran throughout the episode, much more than any other queen. The only cutaway to Ben I can remember is “Barf.”
I’m not complaining, though–both Gia and Adore are welcome surprises to an already stellar cast! Gia is a Chicago queen, and I’ve seen her steal the spotlight at several shows in town. But we haven’t met, and I wasn’t sure how she’d fare on the show. But I do love her style, and I think she’s bringing just the right amount of cattiness for some good drag drama, without resorting to the shrill, screaming attacks we’ve seen in previous seasons. We’ll have to wait and see whether she’ll retain the role of “top bitch” when Bianca enters the picture. ↓ Read the rest of this entry…
