Oh Naya. This is also the same date that Cory Monteith died in 2013. I’m heartbroken today. RIP.July 13, 2020 at 11:37 am #1203583962
“Levitating” being a future single is all I needed to know.July 13, 2020 at 8:45 am #1203583637
Major episode for John Lithgow! That last scene, hmmm. This will change the entire series if the cliffhanger is genuine next episode. Not sure what I think about it yet.July 12, 2020 at 11:26 pm #1203583293

I’ve been bad and totally skipped ahead, b/c I just couldn’t wait until August or September for this series to conclude. This goes to some really dark places in the coming episodes, and yet it’s grounded with bits of needed levity here and there for balance. Michaela Coel’s mind, bitches! I just can’t. I have no hope that the Emmys will remember this next summer, which is terrible, but whatever. Greatness stands on its own terms. I’ll keep the updates going regardless.July 12, 2020 at 11:18 pm #1203583287
Amazing, transcendent, and everything else that’s already been said about this masterwork applies here. It’s one of those rare times when you know that you’re watching greatness, something game-changing and historic. I’ve only experienced that feeling a few times in my life. Very glad I finally saw this in any capacity. It’s funny to me though knowing that some people paid thousands of dollars to see this live on Broadway, while I saw it for free on my phone in bed lol. Life in the “new normal” for ya.July 12, 2020 at 7:12 am #1203582343

It was obviously tanking when it received just “good” reviews, abyssal ratings and mediocre audience reception (that was, again, already incredibly small).
Ratings aren’t the complete story. Niche HBO shows do not receive major ratings. That’s not a reflection of its content. “Run”‘s Metacritic score was 74. So it wasn’t a critical dud by any stretch.July 11, 2020 at 9:21 am #1203581294
When the show came out it became clear that it wasn’t going to be a main contender in comedy due its low quality and small audience so announcing its cancellation in the middle of voting doesn’t matter since it was never going to get many votes to score nominations.
It wasn’t “low quality,” for starters. That’s entirely subjective. You aren’t psychic, nor do you know how Emmy voters are going to respond or not respond to this show. Bye.July 11, 2020 at 8:04 am #1203581147
Ugh. Alexis overplayed her hand in two ways, first by trying to Manila Shea, and then with Indiagate creating the seeds of doubt with the remaining queens that did her in tonight. She showed classic drag queen regality this cycle, and for that, she should be proud. This has introduced her to a new generation of fans like myself who didn’t watch her season, so good going there. Cracker winning was a choice, I guess. Her second dress was ill-fitting. No one really stood out here b/c this “backyard BBQ ball” was a shitty challenge theme. Alexis’s second runway was stunning. That was my fav of the episode along with Shea’s bridal look. The first set with the monologues, yikes. Jujubee, perhaps? Cracker was memorable, at least, and Shea’s nod to the infamous “90210” challenge was cute, but woofff. Blair’s second look was fine to me, or as fine as an unconventional materials sewing challenge can be. I think she should have capped at top five though. Without the shenanigans of “All-Stars” at play, I think she would have been gone by now. Roxxy as a lip-sync assassin, for what exactly? She had two shining moments on her season with the wig reveal to “Whip My Hair” and the bus stop story. No Kameron Michaels? Trinity K. Bonet? Dida Ritz? Monét is NOT an assassin. Vanjie is NOT an assassin. Morgan is NOT an assassin either. But I digress. I will say that’s how you properly pull off a 3-in-1 look, so kudos where they are warranted, Miss Roxxy! Awful Ariana song to have to lip-sync to. I thought the final four would be the finale, but another challenge is in store. Really hope Jujubee can nail this comedy challenge and secure her spot in the finale. Top 2 or top 3? Hmmmm. It’s sad to me that it looks like a S1-S3 queen is at this much of a deficit to win the crown. 3/4’s of this field are from seasons 9 & 10. Last two winners are from, you guessed it, seasons 9 & 10. Seasons 4, 5, & 7 round out the “Hall of Fame.” You have your work cut out for you, Jujubee. WoW clearly is only interested in young queens to continue the franchise moving forward, and older queens are at a marked disadvantage winning outright now.
