    Alaska was AMAZING. Loads of nods to season 9 and a moving piano rendition of Roxxxy Andrews's Read U Wrote U verse :D

    Apparently Valentina is here in October, and Sasha Velour in January. Tempted by both, although I'm struggling to imagine a whole show by both of them. Obviously Alaska has the songs (and personality), and then there are the comedy Queens. But what do the others do in their shows? Is it just lipsyncing, largely?

    Sasha Velour is an amazing performer

    After an impromptu S6 rewatch, I've carried in to S5. Only up the double elimination but I've noticed two things.

    Roxxxy isn't as awful as I remember, maybe that's a bit Ruvisionist after AS2

    And isn't Jade Jolie a NASTY PIECE OF WORK?

    I liked Roxxxy in S5. I didn't get the hatred for her really until I saw AS2 and it was less "hate" and more "annoyance"...

    I think it's probably going to get a bit nastier after Alyssa vs Coco dies down a bit, but let's see.

    In S5 she was an actual bitch to Jinkx. In AS2 she was just... there.

    Yeah, actually I kind of liked her in AS2, KIND OF. I felt a bit bad for her really, it wasn't her fault she was being saved

    People were TOO QUICK TO FORGET she gave us the greatest lip sync moment of all time to that point with her second wig :disco:

    Roxxxy and Phi Phi were perfect examples and how to and how not to get RUDEMPTION from a second appearance on Drag Race.

    Roxxxy was almost neutered in AS2. Although she should have been euthanised at least a fortnight before she finally hobbled off.

    Oh and yes, Jade Jolie is utterly repulsive.

    Not a Jolie fan, but let's not forget it's thanks to her that we got "BACKROLLS?!"

    Roxxxy was a disgusting jealous bully and cunt for the entire duration of S5. I rewatched it recently and she was even fouler to Jinkx than I remembered her being

    Obviously she was much more charming in AS2 despite overstaying her welcome by about four episodes and ma belle Jinkx might have long since forgiven her but I certainly haven’t

    :hitler:

    I've rewatched a lot of it as well, and thought it would be easier to watch knowing the glorious outcome, but strangely it almost seems even worse.

    Jinkx is on What's The Tee? this week, and is as delightfully engaging as ever.

    In a bizarre turn of events, Ru doesn't seem to have turned Michelle's mic off this week. She barely shuts up!

    Storm Brian is keeping me indoors today, so can anyone tell me if both (or either) Hurricane Bianca or Drag Becomes Him are worth watching? Or anything else that may be on Netflix or Amazon Prime that I'm not aware of.

    Although I suppose it depends what you want as your rep - S5 gave her TOXIC DUMB BITCH WHO SERVES vs DUMB AND DOESN'T REALLY SERVE after AS2!

    Hurricane Bianca is awful but worth a watch.

    I doubt very much that there's mileage in this as a new thread (although please split if it proves otherwise), but I am very much enjoying the new Jinkx Monsoon album The Ginger Snapped. Far better than the one she bunged out a few years back.

    It's heaps better. I only started this morning when I saw her pushing it on a YouTube video. This Town is really good.

    This Town is astonishing. I feel like I need to hear a great chanteuse performing it. Which in many ways I guess I am :disco:

    What's On, She Evil and Friends were the tracks that immediately jumped out at me, but it's This Town I keep revisiting.

    I never realised (until I was playing it this morning when Mr L pointed it out) that Friends is an early Adam and the Ants cover.
