Critic Reviews for Queer Eye Season 1

All Critics (32) | Top Critics (15)

The new Fab Five prove dependably charming and charismatic, and rule over the show's familiar bailiwicks -- though they do so, it must be said, with a bit more wet-eyed sincerity than the O.G. crew.

It's a tasty reality TV smoothie: part food show, part real estate show, part makeover show, part matchmaking show, part therapy, and sweet throughout.

This is the best feel good show you will see in your life.

The result is a warm, hopeful, infectiously entertaining show. Bring on series two.

The Queer Eye reboot is even better than it should have been. These Georgia boys are more than just makeover consultants: They are healers and sages for our time...

Jun 28, 2018 | Full Review…

The strange tale of how the reboot that no one asked for became the only reboot we needed.

Jul 13, 2018 | Full Review…

It's the show's beating heart and empathetic spirit that makes this one of the year's best.

Such a wonderful, sweet, lovely show. I cried from joy.

Sep 7, 2018 | Full Review…

Maybe it's because things have changed significantly since the original 2003 debut, in cultural outlook, as well as in the finesse of reality-show editing, but the new version feels much more relaxed, less a novelty, and emotionally richer.

No matter who you are, there's something in this show for you.

Aug 31, 2018 | Full Review…

The nicest, kindest critique of toxic masculinity imaginable. The makeovers aren't only about new clothes and a haircut: they're about men waking up to a new sense of self, and a new participation in their own lives.

Aug 27, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

It might sound crazy, but Queer Eye is a reminder that reality television, even within something as vapid as the makeover subgenre, is capable of changing a little corner of the world.

    This show has changed me. Truly it is so fun, positive, and promotes such a great message. I watch it whenever I feel down or whenever I need motivation to go to the gym or take out the recycling. It makes me a better person.

    Reason why I created an account. Been checking this site for years, yet this did it. I'm on season 3 now and can't stop watching it. This is what reality TV should be all about. It is a beautiful portrayal of humanity, love, a lesson about the basic most primordial needs and truths about what we strive for as humans. It makes me feel happy and it teaches me about others and about myself. Watch it. It is a celebration about life and being truly alive.

    This is a refreshingly fun and positive show that despite your alignment or background, there's something in here for everybody.

    I love this show so much and it is really entertaining, funny, heartbreaking, and heartwarming. I get emotional and cry like every episode. The casting was phenomenal, I love everyone of the Fab Five, they are funny, have outstanding chemistry, and are really nice to the people they are making over, they are never rude or judgemental they just really want to help. Out of the Fab Five I just love Antoni. I just love the theme song I sing along every time it plays and they picked the perfect singer to perform it Betty Who's voice on the song is stupendous. This is my favorite new show of 2018, my favorite reality show of all time, my 2nd favorite Netflix original show, and one of my favorite shows of all time, this was a A+ first season.

    This crew is not nearly as talented as the original fab 5. Seems like either they aren't trying or they are trying too hard. Annoying at it's best.
