  1. Season 4 was available on Amazon Prime until they started airing Season 9 (because Prime only makes a certain number of seasons available), so it can't be a super hard and fast rights thing.
  2. I was spoiled as to the format, and who win each round and the finale, and I still found the finale riveting! But I've had the very unpopular opinion that this has been a really great season. Watching Peppermint v. Trinity, I spent a lot of time thinking "how does Pep win?" But what I love is that she held onto her reveal until the exact right moment, and made me forget about Trinity. In retrospect, I kinda thought we've already seen Trinity do this exact same performance to a Britney Spears song. Sasha really took the costume destruction to the next level. She won via gimmick, but ultimately, those gimmicks weren't cheap and I think that's what drag is about. I love Shea but was disappointed with her lip sync. We haven't had a Whitney song since Shannel, right? I've been wondering for years when we were going to get "It's Not Right but It's Okay," which I love for. When Ru announced that song I was hollering. Sasha did not disappoint.
  3. For real, my friend said something about Kimora's look at the finale party, and I honestly thought "Kimora Lee Simmons was at the finale party?" Totally forgot there was a person on this show named Kimora (and I'm okay with that, frankly).
  4. I must be watching a different show, because I loved this season and I think all of the final 4 is great in their own way. Yeah, this episode was edited in a way to make it look like all of them did well, which makes us all able to say "I knew they weren't going to eliminate anyone!" which kind of pisses me off, but even so, I think it was justified. With that said, Trinity was the only one who had a final look that I like. Isn't the last runway supposed to be your best drag? Only Trinity gave anything that was WOW (Peppermint's dress might have been wow if it looked/wore a little more expensive), and she was the only one who looked better then than she had in the past. I was also a bit underwhelmed with Shea's performances this episode. As a Shea True Believer, I still thought she performed better than Trinity, and was arguably better than Sasha, but I expected her to blow them out of the water. I was wrong. Peppermint and to a lesser extend Sasha (although our expectations were appropriately lowered for her) are the ones who really impressed me with the choreography and really selling it. Shea's legs were too straight. Is that a thing? It was bugging me. She looked too stiff while she was dancing. I love about Trinity that she's really shown herself to be versatile and, despite the more sour parts of her personality, she's actually very positive when presented with something outside of her comfort zone! Many of the look queens we've seen on this show give up when presented with something they don't want to do, or they pull a Derrick Barry and look like absolute shit while doing it, but Trinity really excelled. She impressed me a lot, but I still think she's the weakest of the four, because although she's versatile, I don't think there's a single way in which she's better than all the rest. Nevertheless, I think she does a good job rounding out the final group, and I'm really pleased with the level of talent and professionalism that has made it to the end.
  5. I don't know, Rusty is pretty old. On further inspection, she was saying "there's no place like home." So I'm not sure why they didn't play the sound.
  6. Not to pile on, but Alexis didn't know the words, right? Or is she just kinda sloppy with it? Also, what do you think Sasha said at the end of her rainbow runway? Did she sing "Somewhere Over the Rainbow?" She was obviously doing something that referenced Dorothy that the show didn't want to buy the rights for. Shea is amazing. I like Sasha, but I agree with the critique that it wasn't ball drag. Shea may not have done rainbow, but it was so amazing that I didn't care.
  7. What I loved about Peppermint is that absolutely none of her jokes were "Michelle is such a slut..." which I think is the very easy, tired way to go. I know Michelle isn't bothered by it, and I'm not either, but she didn't go lazy with it.
  8. The tops and bottoms this episode were totally obvious. But I thought Alexis deserved to go home. Her lip sync was soulless. I'm glad to see Peppermint and Sasha do better.
  9. I see Aja took acting lessons from the 6th Grade Play School of Shrug Acting. Will not miss.
  10. Alexis did great as Kris Jenner because like Kris Jenner, she's the worst. This scene in untucked where she summons everyone over to scold them for not telling her to put on a different outfit is about the most annoying thing anyone has done on this show since LaGanja. Girl, shut up. I really don't think Farrah is very exciting but she occasionally shows flashes of wit that makes me think there's something there that she's holding back. I think she won the lip sync because Santi Alley didn't know the words and also her mouth is insanely distracting. Valentina is probably what Farrah wants to be, and Farrah should watch her for tips. She's super fabulous, incredibly sweet, and every once in a while when she starts to veer into annoying territory, she pulls it back with some hilarious self-deprication ("it's not in the budget" re: covering her house in crystals). Valentina, Shea, and another queen-to-be-named-later for final three, please.
  11. In the first two episodes, I didn't like Eureka and Trinity personality-wise, and I didn't think anything of Shea, but I really appreciated all of them in this episode/untucked. Shea's rapid "I can fix that" to Nina's "I'm a born-again-virgin" had me howling. Aja's personality is one of my least favorite since at least LaGanja, if not all the way back to PhiPhi. She's crazy if she thought that ugly ass outfit with the busted make-up and wig line was going to put her in the top three. And she said she took a risk? Was the risk going out there with no cohesion? But she slayed the lip sync. Alexis is starting to get a little cloying, and it's turning her into a filler bitch. Is she the one who said there was a lot of astigmatism in the pageant world? Because it's the best thing she's said, and she didn't even mean it.
  12. Soooo this week's "Holding Out for a Hero" is an instant classic. Aja killed it. I mean, she would have won without the jumps, since Kimora didn't know the words, but damn. She pulled it out.
  13. I suspected this part was heavily edited. There was a cut-in interview that just said some generic "really, girl?" stuff. I think the only queen who interacted with Valentina with the candle in-frame was Aja who, a) I think is Latinx, and b) is from New York, so she must be familiar with these. Because yeah, it strikes me as very odd for a culturally-connected group to see those candles as so curious. I have to think it was fake.
  14. I was on the fence about Eureka, but the fact that she pointed out Nina in untucked and said she should be in the bottom three because she wasn't memorable? With that red lace all over her face? And the mouse outfit and the Georgia peach??? Nina is the only one who had two outfits I remember, never mind three. I'm getting bitchy bitch, not fun bitch, from her.
  15. I'm disappointed in Alaska, but I still think she's killing the competition and likely deserves to win. I would have chosen Katya to win based on the leg guitar alone, but I'm sure Ru and the producers know which lipstick each queen picks, and I think they selected Alaska for the drama. My pet theory is that Alaska probably knew Roxxxy should go home, but didn't expect to win, and didn't even try her hardest to win, so her plan was to choose Tatianna, not give it her all, and then Katya would win and send the right person home, and then when they returned to the workroom Alaska could show for the camera that she had Roxxy's back. It just didn't work out that way because the producers wanted to fuck with it. Alaska has C.U.N. and T., I just wish she had a little more courage to go along with that nerve.
