News & Interviews for AJ and the Queen: Season 1
The gospel Ruby-slash-RuPaul preaches is not one of great transformation but rather one of great transcendence, and the vision of queens as mini-Oprahs, capable of therapizing away America's wounds, is seductively comforting.
AJ and the Queen can be a lot of fun... But the series is riddled with scripting snags, potentially by virtue of trying to balance camp and commentary in hour-long episodes.
Despite some stumbles and clumsy writing, the first season of AJ and the Queen is a heartwarming, heartbreaking delight that lets you ride out every emotion while giving you a few laughs and some amazing drag, too.
Unfortunately, RuPaul continues to get in her own way in this series. Pretty annoying, since I wanted to love this series as a longtime RuPaul and Drag Race fan, a fan who sees the good and the bad of RuPaul's reign.
Fasten your seatbelts, as Netflix's AJ and the Queen is a rambling, overlong road odyssey.
'AJ and The Queen' is a pleasant comedy for lovers of the classic pop divas, sequin and musical numbers. [Full Review in Spanish]
If nothing else, hopefully watching RuPaul explore the world of smalltown drag will inspire you to go out and support your local queens.
It's evident that AJ and the Queen wants to cover many stories and balance different tones to the point that it becomes a pastiche. [Full Review in Spanish]
It's trying to be everything and the product is a show whose seams don't quite match up.
RuPaul, my dear, you may be the Queen of Drag Race. But when it comes to scripted programming, you stall out at the starting line. I'm sorry, my dear, you are up for cancellation.
Audience Reviews for AJ and the Queen: Season 1
6d agoNot the best acting by a long shot for some of the characters, but all in all an endearing story and fun too.
Apr 13, 2021You can't stop watching RuPaul and Izzy G on their way to Texas to locate Izzy's grandfather. It is a lot of fun, melodrama and slick talking all the way to Texas!
Sep 23, 2020Its a fairly nice modern day "Priscilla, Queen of the Desert".
Aug 09, 2020This is a very good série that RuPaul created. But unfortunately, Netflix will not make the second season of it. I loved the serie and you should give it a try.
Jun 30, 2020Love this best LGBT+ TV show ever. Love the comedy , drama and the connection each character has with the audience. No discrimination found here. A fun loving TV show everyone can enjoy.
Jun 16, 2020This series has A LOT of different subplots in it, so try and keep up. It was funny, campy - but also could be very sad and very sobering at times. The ending = amazing. Never saw it coming.
May 24, 2020May need to be a RuPaul fan, but if you are this is a must!
May 20, 2020It's one of the kindest series there is, overwhelmingly so. World needs more unconditional kindness and cheerful extraordinary series like AJ and the Queen. It's also fresh and different, for those, who is tired of watching flat and resembling each other stories over and over again. Need season 2!
May 12, 2020BEST SHOW EVER! It's such a great story. Its unrealistic in its portrayal of how people react to LGBT and drags... but that's part of its beauty... imagining a world that's more accepting. The characters are all amazing except the villains which feel too much like disney villains. By far the best Netflix has to offer
May 08, 2020Im sad it was cancelled. I liked this netfilx show
