Coming late to the party since I was abroad for the last 3 weeks

There was no way Marina wouldn't take the win this episode, what an amazing queen. And yes!!! Tia grande! For a moment I thought they were gonna make them lipsync against each other! That would have been so cruel

Not the best but not the worst snatch game. It seemed like half the gals did well and the other half… not so much. I do think Nymphia should have been in the bottom; she was by far the worst. But I do think it was a little unfair that Ru seemed actively annoyed with her, cutting her off, etc during the game. Also Mhiya was way over praised for storyline reasons (going from quiet to outgoing, taking direction) for what was otherwise a pretty mid performance.

lol i just saw this after asking if anyone was gonna watch this season of Ph

Disregarding the audio quality (i had to turn up the volume really high) the season was off to a good start. I agree with the placements for this ep and was absolutely entertained by Arizona and Jade (she looked so gorgeous and was correct for picking that Adarna reference)

Having read several opinions about the group number, i think it’s a good point that this challenge shouldn’t be the opener because the girls haven’t bonded yet. And while it seems “Pop Off, Ate” can’t be beat, “Boogs” is pretty catchy too

I’ve read so much tea about the queens already lol. I can’t wait for the episode where they merge. It’s looking to be US season 5 levels of mess (in a good way; think Alyssa vs Coco)

As a former costume designer in theater, Serena Morena's look seems like a rough draft. Like that's what you work up to test a design, and then you refine it. I'd look at that and say, "Great, the concept works structurally....now let's make the bodice darker green, tighten up the transition from the white flower to the green above the waist, add sparkle around the edge of the flower, and work up yellow-tone makeup so her whole head and neck are the pistil. Oh, and get a better wig and style it more appropriately, maybe add some sparkle." It was a really great idea, it was just still in sketch phase.

Honestly, Margaret's was the worst, most unsavable look to me. It felt like messy fabric and craft store items thrown together. I'm not sure what it was supposed to be, really.

Regina's was exquisite, but a little expected. I enjoyed the cactus, and Gala's weird shape and her head "blooming" when she first came out. Christian's was pretty, but not super floral to me...more gradient. And girl, her wig looked like evidence from a crime scene. Those red sparkles were blood spatter evidence.

Like pretty much everyone else, I did not get peyote from Matraka. I even searched for photos of the cactus it comes from (hey there, NSA!), and still don't get it. The little flowers are pink, but the petal pattern is totally different, so... The dress itself was really cool, and would have been better without the flowers and that weird monstera leaf head piece (a plant that grows in an entirely different biome, by the way). Her performance in the main was so good, I'm happy with her being top. But I'm not sure that this look, though interesting, really fit the brief.

I haven't watched the first season of DR France (planning to this week), but decided to try Season 2 because I desperately needed a palate cleanser for All Stars (my heart is still sad).

OMG, I love this! Definitely the needed pick-me-up! There are so many interesting and talented queens. Really, really high quality overall. I'm genuinely excited to see what they do next week!

Honestly I like them all, but a few I'm looking out for. I particularly like Sara Forever, who had the audacity to strut in dressed as a vulva with her head as the clit. Lordy! And then followed that up with an excellent performance, good writing, creative runway...she's one to watch. And I live for a good "fuck gender norms" queen, so I'm definitely looking forward to watching Piche, though I low-key suspect she'll be out halfway. I've got my fingers crossed for Ginger Bitch, whom I immediately fell in love with, and was sad to see not have quite the confidence she needed during the performance. I genuinely hope that's a hiccup, because she's funny and adorable. And we even have two creature queens (be still my heart)!

I'm not mad at the judging, though I might have put Ginger (love her and hate to say this) in the bottom two instead of Kitty, but that's a quibble this early on. I will say, that for claiming to not lip sync, Kitty put on a better show than I've seen in three episodes of DR Mexico, side eye fully intended. Also, her runway look was literally fire.

Anyway, I'm really excited for this, and can't wait for the next episode!

I highly agree! It reminds me of season 12 US. What a strong premier. They all seem to not have come to play

jbdigriz,
jbdigriz avatar

I hear you! There are definitely the tingles of a really good season already, and it reminded me of the start of Season 2 US, another utterly insane powerhouse of a season.

Doll_Tow_Jet-ski,
Doll_Tow_Jet-ski avatar

I haven't started watching because my max is 2 seasons at a time. Right now I am on AS8 and Drag Race México. Still, looking forward to AS8 ending so I can start with DRF. @jbdigriz I strongly recommend season 1. Specially if you want to see the journey of Lolita Banana, which you sort of need to appreciate to see her on Drag Race México. But also because the queens are just awesome, and Nicky is a great host.

Anyway, thanks for sharing your enthusiasm for the season. You've tickled my curiosity!

jbdigriz,
jbdigriz avatar

I totally get waiting. Was planning to do the same until...well...you know. :'( I guess All Stars is kinda already over in my head, since I'm 99% sure of who will win both the crown and fame games.

Anyway, won't post any more spoilers here, since I know you're not watching yet. Do you want me to post the France episode 2 thread? So you don't get accidentally spoiled by a reply notification preview? It is worth saving and savoring, if that's your plan.

If you can, then please do go ahead and post the Post-episode discussion for France S2E2. Work is crazy these days for me so a helping hand is much appreciated

jbdigriz,

Yeah, I hope you really enjoy it!

Okay, I put up a DRFrance episode 2 thread. I"m happy to keep doing them until you have time to catch up with the season; I've got some time this next few weeks.

Coming late to the conversation since I just started watching. I agree with your bottom two placement. I was heart broken to see Rose and Punani being separated. It reminded me of when Sugar & Spice were separated in US season 15, which also broke my heart. But Kitty Space rightfully won that lipsync.

In the runway I absolutely loved Piche (I loves me some genderfuck drag) and I am living for the confessionals of Moon. I hope she stays long

jbdigriz, in All Stars [S08E10 - The letter L] - Post-episode discussion
jbdigriz avatar

Oh god, why? :'(

I'm just trying to come to terms with this.

I guess it will allow Jessica into the Fame Games, where she'll likely win, so at least she'll get some cash. But man it just feels like a slap in the face, that for the first time in the show's history (!), they have to get down to two queens, and Jessica is the one that got eliminated. Jessica has been an absolute joy to watch excel in pretty much every challenge, and not hating Kandy, but looking at the performances this season, Jessica has been in all measures just better. Bonus ick, it kind of screws everyone else in the Fame Games, putting one of the real top two in with them.

And now we get to sit through an hour finale of Kandy being predictable, Jimbo being endearingly weird and beautiful, production trying to drum up some tension, and Jimbo being crowned. Jimbo totally deserves it, and I'll love to see her win, but man it would have been so much more fun and interesting to have Jessica and Jimbo be the top two.

Uugh, uugh....uugh.

The one bright light here was getting to see Priyanka again. She's a true lip sync assassin, and absolutely steamrolled Kandy without even rolling out the big guns. Makes me want to watch her season of Canada again. (Aside: dream lip sync battle...Priyanka vs Anitra.)

I'll try to take some consolation that the most iconic moment from this season will have us forever wondering if we have enough on our ETB cards for soft shell carne asada tacos with (expensive!) guacamole. Nothing else this season can match that.

tl/dr: My disappointment is immeasurable and my day is ruined. Jessica Wild Forever!!! <3

This is going to be exactly what the finale is going to be. I am going to miss the multiple lip syncs for the finale and at least the drama. This feels like it was set up exactly for Jimbo since she can't lip sync. I think she was the best in the season overall so its not unexpected but more of a bummer.

jbdigriz,
jbdigriz avatar

Yeah, aside from any of the stuff about which queens are or are not going on, this format just sucks in general. A top three is so much better, or even a top four (where they take it to two during the final episode). Particularly if the top three are all really strong queens that are just different in style.

I dunno, maybe I'm just over this season in general. I'm kind of excited to see the eliminated queens (missing my dear Yessica and desperate for more of The Lala Ri Experience) next week, but feel like I could almost skip the finale. I do want to see what Jimbo wears/does, but that's about it.

dumples,
dumples avatar

I some times feel like the finale can be kind of boring. I have skipped them before and just looked up the final lip-syncs. I am thinking the Fame Game episode might be better than the Finale to see everyone again

Doll_Tow_Jet-ski,
Doll_Tow_Jet-ski avatar

I would have also liked to see a top 3 with Miss Jessica Wiiiiiild!!! lol
However, I have mixed feelings. I have always found it a bit cringe/sad when we get a top 4, and then 2 of the queens who are clearly not going to win get told that they are not even going to lipsync for the crown, and are told to sashay away. In a way, I think I prefer an honest top two than a top two disguised as a top 4.

If I had to guess, I think Ru/production got the memo with season 14 and the endless double shantays and elimination-less episodes. I remember Ru being very adamant about wanting there to be an elimination on every episode on season 15. Maybe this is in the same line. Ru/production want eliminations to become a more constant aspect of the show, probably to keep the audience on their toes. Maybe season 8 was a test, to see how the audience would react. The problem is that regardless of how the audience feels about top 2 vs top 3/4, their opinions are going to be biased because I think it's fair to assume most people would have preferred Jessica to make it to the finale instead of Kandy.

jbdigriz,
jbdigriz avatar

Yeah, I see what you're saying. I think it only works if the top 4 all actually have a shot at the top, rather than are filler for the first half of the show. And I agree that probably won't happen.

Oh man, Season 14 was a burden to watch because of that. If they were going to do all that goofiness, they should have just gone with the AllStars Season 7 format where they kept everyone the whole time and awarded them points (except for the irritating point changes at the end, that made all the earlier wins not really matter, that was AWFUL).

I dunno...turning it over and over in my mind, it is so hard to find a "perfect" format, because usually by the time we get halfway through the season, it seems very clear who will be placed where, or very close. That's the real flaw, I think. To get around that, you'd have to change up the whole idea of the show's individual competitions, I think.

Doll_Tow_Jet-ski,
Doll_Tow_Jet-ski avatar

Your words feel correct! Gurl... You're right in that we can take solace in all the iconic moment moments Jessica gave us, soft shell tacos with expensive guacamole will live rent-free in my mind until way past my Alzheimer.
But yes, I love Jimbo but they really liked my passion for this season with this one. I just want this season to be over so I can start watching France 2.

I tried watching but as soon as I saw the top 4 around the werkroom table, I lost interest. Just find it gross how they treated the queens especially Clover throughout the season. Might watch someday, but not soon. I’ve moved on to Mexico. New ep today!

goldenbug,

I was in love with Clover and I hope she gets her skills honed in for an All Stars and show them how it is doneee.

I liked Pitita but this season was... Not great.

goldenbug, in Question for all of you: What would you like to see in this community?

I wanna talk about my favorite queens (the Sashas), about outfits, about fav lipsyncs and to complain about disappointing seasons (Drag Race España 3, whyyyyy are you like this?!?)

More to the point, we can doweekly fashion threads, we can do 'what challenge would you like to see?' Questions and so on.

Shiiit I love this season already. What an iconic cast. I can already tell there's going to be some of the best confesionals we've seen in the franchise. I am specifically dying for Roxxxy's and Vanje's. Anjeria also delivers.

I think the only queen I'm not really a fan of is Gottmik. For the rest, I live for all of them. It's crazy to see, now I'm watching her again, that I think Shannel is the OG delusional queen LOL

That lipsync was everything. I thought Jorgeous had it at first but Anjeria turned it up. Her old southern christian lady dance really does it for Ru.

At first I wasn't so happy about the cutting a queen off twist, but seeing the queens are taking it like a compliment puts some relief into the whole situation.

And I'm calling it already in episode one: My favorite to take the crown right now is Roxxxy. Let's see how things evolve.

GlitterInfection, in Meet The Queens of All Stars 9 | RuPaul’s Drag Race

Very excited for this version of All Stars! I loved the All Winners season, and this looks like it will have similar vibes.

I wonder if the charity focus will change the challenges/mini challenges?

It feels like just in the promo there’s a lot higher level of respect towards the queens. It was great to hear them discussing all the accomplishments they’ve had since they last competed.

Doll_Tow_Jet-ski,
Doll_Tow_Jet-ski avatar

Good points! I am hoping for a non-elimination season. Seeing Channel leave the competition before the finale would be criminal. Same with Nina, Roxxxy and Anjeria

GlitterInfection,

It would be a really short season if we didn’t get a non-elimination season, plus that would be kind of not charitable so to speak.
