Critic Reviews for RuPaul's Drag Race Season 4

Apparently the best queen was to come, and she appeared last night in the show's season 4 premiere: Sharon Needles.

With all the subterfuge came a lack of authenticity... I hope Ru saw that, and that next season she finds a middle ground that preserves the mystery while also preserving the moments the audience really wants to see.

Mar 26, 2019 | Full Review…

They're one women vamping machines, and the fact that they also manage to be some of the funniest characters on television is just a bonus.

Nov 16, 2018 | Rating: B | Full Review…

It's such a brilliant slap-in-the-face to the reality competition genre.

Nov 16, 2018 | Rating: A | Full Review…

Take the show back to its dirty, sarcastic, low-rent, b----y beginnings. Trying to turn it into American Idol is a huge mistake.

Mar 27, 2019 | Full Review…

Drag Race speaks to that same strange zone in my brain that derived so much pleasure from characters like Macho Man Randy Savage and Jesse "The Body" Ventura.

Audience Reviews for RuPaul's Drag Race: Season 4

    It wasn't the most amazing season, but a lot of talented, iconic queens are found in this season! Sharon Needle's win marks a bit fo a turning point to me.

    Season 4 of Drag Race is interesting, because while the queens aren't necessarily fantastic in the challenges or on the runway, they're generally amazing lipsyncers with enormous personalities. As a result, season 4 has some of the series's best reality TV moments. There are some major twists in this season which feel well executed, and lead to a satisfying ending.
