‘Pose’ Continues Its Unparalleled, Triumphant Storytelling with Stunning Season 2 Premiere [RECAP]

Coming off a bold, breathtaking and often devastating first season, the season two premiere of Pose on F/X delivered all the magic of its peerless debut. Make no mistake, Pose is the most special series on television, and it’s one of the strongest representations of queer people in contemporary media. Where else are we seeing stories about young, poor, trans and gay people of color told with such dignity, depth and hope? Season two is already masterfully blending the personal and political, unique and universal experiences and themes that resonate...

The Winner Isn’t the Only Reveal on the ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ Finale [RECAP]

As I sort of felt coming, RuPaul’s Drag Race ended, and all I feel is relief. It was an overly-long season that was capped with an overly-long finale. Sure, the right person won, but it came at the conclusion of a 90-minute finale that really only featured 20 minutes of content. Instead we were treated to extended runway walks from this season’s queens (and plenty of previous gals), unnecessary video packages that really said nothing at all about the final four and a performance from what could only be described...

‘Game of Thrones’ Delivers a Divisive Series Finale [RECAP]

Game of Thrones ended its decade-long story last night, and fans are split on its controversial ending. That’s a sentence I could’ve written years ago when the show’s plans for its conclusion were first revealed. It’s impossible to please everyone, and today’s viewers feel increasing ownership over the content they consume. Every day we’re mashing react buttons on every one-liner, video, webseries, podcast, etc., etc. But there’s a reason why everyone isn’t helming their own multi-million dollar television series. As the remaining lords and ladies of Westeros laughed off last...

One Less Queen Everywhere as ‘Drag Race’ Picks Its Final Four [RECAP and RANKINGS]

You guys, I am tired. Don’t get me wrong, I still love RuPaul’s Drag Race, but mama needs a break. As we head into the upcoming finale, the thing that excites me most is for the whole thing to be over. It’s not the fault of the queens or the producers or Ru herself, there has just been a crushing cycle of RuPaul’s Drag Race content for so long now. If someone needs to be blamed, I guess it’s VH1. Rolling from season to season of Drag Race and All...

A Rough Night for Silky (and a Rougher Episode for Us) on ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ [RECAP and RANKINGS]

Woof. That certainly was one stinker of a RuPaul’s Drag Race episode. Full of fan-favorite, dependable challenges and a head-to-head lip sync between two queens who have yet to appear in the bottom two, all the ingredients were there for a barn burner. And yet? In the words of Mama Ru herself, “Meh.” Instead, all this season’s shortcomings were on full display in an overly dramatic, over-stuffed episode. Let’s hunker down and power through, because this was a slog. After the typical, obligatory sadness over Shuga’s departure, Vanjie and Silky...

It’s All a Bunch of Hocus Pocus on ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ [RECAP and RANKINGS]

We all know are queer people are magic, right? I don’t mean to generalize, but having heightened empathy, creative aptitude, connection to nature and enduring spirit does make me believe that queer people are basically witches. (Every time we take our PrEP with vodka-soda we grow stronger!) That’s why I’m surprised it’s taken RuPaul’s Drag Race so long to do a straight-up magic show. Really, the line between a magic show and a drag show is already razor thin. It’s a great medium to test the gals’ showmanship, humor and...

‘Game of Thrones’ Masterful Battle and Shocking Conclusion [RECAP]

If, like myself, you spent the weekend watching Avengers: Endgame ahead of Sunday’s long-awaited Battle of Winterfell episode of Game of Thrones, you may have come in to Sunday’s installment wondering “How are they going to be able to top THAT?” While both series were building to massive battles the scales of which we’ve rarely seen, narratively (and at times visually) the two pieces of art have many parallels. Just by nature of their timing, it was inevitable they’d be lumped together in the cultural conversation. With a 22-film build...

Queens Have the Right to Remain Ridiculous on ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ [RECAP and RANKINGS]

It seems last week’s loose Snatch has led to a much tighter race between our remaining queens on RuPaul’s Drag Race. We’ve finally axed about half of our starting lineup, so now’s the time for the frontrunners to really start swinging. And last night’s episode gave them just enough rope to hang themselves. That’s not to say last night was a total disaster, but two fairly open-ended challenges and an ambitious runway theme all but begged the queens to show us what they’re bringing to the table. Who turned it...

A Cold Knight In ‘Fell On ‘Game of Thrones’ [RECAP]

After an opening episode that served to reorient viewers to the major players for Game of Thrones‘ final season, our second installment was a rich, textured example of excellent storytelling that allowed viewers to soak up emotional moments with character they’ve grown to love. And characters they’ll likely have to say goodbye to soon. Yes, ahead of next week’s sure-to-be-spectacular Battle of Winterfell, all around the North, reunions and respect were shared among the major players. Instead of the breakneck trips around Westeros we’re used to, the story stayed put...
