Critic Reviews for RuPaul's Drag Race Season 5

In Season 5, it appears we're back to glamour-land, with a slate of queens who, with a few exceptions, seem to value being "fishy"... above all else.

It's actually pretty hard to tell if the queens are "killer" yet, but I will give them this: They're looking pretty good.

There isn't any reality show on television funnier than Drag Race, and I can confidently say that there aren't very many shows period that pack in as many laughs as this one does in an hour.

Just when you thought every topic had been covered, season five prompted an excellent, eye-opening conversation about the drag rights of transsexual women.

RPDR has not yet surrendered to the been-there-done-that-ism of Project Runway. There's still some life in the old girl.
