The best of the Quibi titles are the ones that end after their short runtimes and make you immediately want to jump to the next episode, and you just don't get that here.

They take drag to a deeper, more artistically-satisfying level than Michelle Visage is going to demand on RuPaul's Drag Race, and they feel as educational and nourishing as Velour keeps reminding you she is. T

[Nightgowns] at least has an informative structure, highlighting each act bite by bite, giving us a rousing performance at the end of every installment. It's a mini-documentary that could live anywhere, really, but exists on Quibi just fine.
