Critic Reviews for Queer Eye Season 2

All Critics (30) | Top Critics (13)

The new series brings less acid humor and a lot more heart than the original, and while its fumbling attempts to address America's political and racial divides can seem cringingly naive, it's a dependable source of pop-culture comfort food.

The dark underside to the Fab Five's affirming messages about confidence and self-acceptance are that everything bad that happens to you is your fault.

Dec 18, 2018 | Full Review…

Ever-so-gently, the Fab Five test out how anyone can possibly try to construct their "best" selves once the social proscriptions for how to dress and act have been lifted.

There's a bit of combativeness that makes the show vastly more interesting than standard reality fare.

Dec 18, 2018 | Full Review…

The show's depiction of queerness is more diverse still, with the gang making over both their first woman and their first trans man...

The eight-episode series bounces on a rhythm of optimistic acceptance where the original Queer Eye on Bravo shimmied to undermine persisting prejudices. Exceedingly formatted, the result is still just too sugar-coated for my palate.

Queer Eye is a reality television program, and is as prone to blatant emotional manipulation and nakedly capitalist bootstrap logic as any other. But it's a contemporary kind, and one that channeled the zeitgeist better than most...

Dec 6, 2018 | Full Review…

Queer Eye's new purpose is a bit meatier than its predecessor's because it aims to leverage its five experts to find the goodness that already exists in their makeover subjects. The avocado recipes and round brush techniques are just bonuses.

Oct 16, 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…

The new Fab Five are aspirationally empathetic and intersectional, and the people whom they meet and transform end up bettered ways they could never have imagined - as do we as an audience.

Jul 16, 2018 | Full Review…

The Fab Five demand to be seen as exactly who they are, comfortable in their skins, and it's the confidence and positivity they radiate when they burst into peoples lives that are so attractive.

This made for the most redemptive, surprising, uplifting half hour on TV all week.

Audience Reviews for Queer Eye: Season 2

    Another A+ season and this show just keeps getting better. The Fab Five continue to be super entertaining and funny and I love they are just very nice and caring people and they continue to have outstanding chemistry. I love everyone of the Fab Five but I still just really love Antoni. This show just continues to be really funny and really entertaining while continuing to pull at the heartstrings. I still love and sing along to the theme song every time it plays. Queer Eye is still my favorite reality show of all time and my 2nd favorite Netflix show.

    Queer Eye continues to address important topics, both with some light-hearted fun and with a lot of emotions. The Fab 5 open up a lot and by helping other people, they grow as people as well. It's heart-warming and beautiful.

    Just not as engaging as the original Fab Five.
  • Aug 19, 2018
    It's not an episode of Queer Eye if you don't cry a little.
  • Aug 17, 2018
    ALL the feels in this show! Combines the best of superficial joyful self expression to really serious, heart-warming scenes and being a confident "you."
  • Jul 25, 2018
    Superficial and stereotypical
  • Jul 17, 2018
    Such a charming show! HAs all the elements to warm the heart. Definitely a lot of laughter as well.
