This looks good
i think it looks overly glossy and sanitised and quite tone-deaf.
ryan murphy is so hit and miss.
Why tone deaf?
It looks potentially quite fun but the tone of the trailer is all over the shop
from the trailer it looks like the people on the ballroom scene were something glamorous almost fancy. i don't see any of the grit or indeed "realness" of what paris is burning showed. the whole thing looks like a 00s fashion shoot recreating ball culture.
Is this actually based on Paris Is Burning or anything? Or was Phoenix just making a connection?
It looks commercial and dilute as fuck, but all social trends/movement eventually become that way. So while I probably won't watch it, at least it's carrying drag forward. I'd rather have what looks like a corny drag Step Up than nothing at all and drag just fading away into obscurity as another fad.
So is anyone watching this? I'm up to episode 6, it's a bit sappy in places but I'm loving it. Episode 6 is especially moving.
I plan on watching it eventually, I just don't have the time. It's getting a good reception and has been renewed for season 2.
So why does @Suedey hate it?
so does it do the misery of our brothers and sisters justice or is it all FAB AND GLAM DARLING as the trailer suggests?
I'd say say it's both really. There's definitely glam but it also touches on the subjects of poverty, HIV, acceptance of gay and trans people, etc.
