    This show makes me so happy on so many levels. I love seeing the ballroom scene in action - queer/POC being beautiful, creative, and strong in face of adversity. It's so extraordinary and such a privilege to watch this community. The judges are a dream team: Law Roach - THE fashion icon who's always looking good and ALWAYS cracking me up. Jameela Jamil - She might legit be the most beautiful woman on the planet, I mean my god. She's also hella funny and has the biggest heart on the show. Megan Thee Stalion - She is the baddest mothafuckn bitch on the planet, OK?! I really can't think of anyone cooler than her. Leiomy - MOTHER! She is legendary herself and all her feedback and scores for the houses are always on point. Host is the best: Deshaun West who is dreamy and fabulous. I also should add that the cinematography and music is the best out of any reality tv show I've ever seen! OMG. HBO: well job. Bring on more POC/queer representation please.

    Fantastic! This is what Ballroom looks like when the participants have money, designers, and professional choreographers. For years I have binged youTube videos of Ballroom performances. This is next level.

    What a glorious celebration of dance, vogue, costumes and so much more. A true experience for the eyes and the soul, one cannot watch legendary and not feel at least a tingle of pride in our LGBTQ culture

    Loving it. It feels generally authentic yet accessible. I enjoyed Episode 2 better than 1, especially the judging. Looking forward to the rest of the season.
