Critic Reviews for RuPaul's Drag Race: Season 1

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (1)

Yes, it's funny and campy and an absolute treasure trove of GIFs, but it's also honest-to-god more substantive than one might expect when all you know about the show is that there are huge wigs involved.

It's a nearly dead-on spoof of Project Runway and America's Next Top Model... Yes, Ru is playing both the Heidi and the Tim parts on this show and frankly, that's a little bit of genius.

Rather than simply treating drag performers as people to be laughed at and/or scorned, the show also focuses on the hard work and talent that goes into drag performances.

Ru presides over everything with the theatrical sternness of Tyra Banks and the motherly wisdom of Oprah.

Drag shows are not for everyone, but anyone can enjoy an insider's peek at one of the more outré forms of transformative entertainment.
