‘Ru Paul’s Drag Race UK 2×08’ Review

by Rhys Payne

So last week the queens had to create an outfit from household items to transform themselves into lockdown (s)hero’s and I enjoyed that the show referenced the global situation, as everyone knows about it and is thinking about it. We saw A’whora shine as she crafted an incredibly impactful and dramatic outfit that served as […]

‘Headspace: A Guide to Mediation’ Review (Netflix)

by Rhys Payne

Having gone through Catholic-based education since I was young, we used to regularly meditate in class as a form of prayer and so all my life I have associated mediation with a form of religious celebration. It was always pitched as an opportunity to focus on the lord etc., so you can imagine my surprise […]

‘Ru Paul’s Drag Race UK 2×07’ Review

by Rhys Payne

In last weeks episode of Ru Paul’s Drag Race UK, we saw the elimination of Tia Kofi who was known for her camp outfits (which the judges called too ‘local’ for the biggest drag competition, but I have to be honest it’s this style of performance I would love to see live; and you can […]

‘Ru Paul’s Drag Race 13×08’ Review

by Rhys Payne

We never managed to get that drag mother versus daughter lip-sync that I believed was obvious from the moment the cast was announced. The family members Tamisha Imann and Lala Ri have now both been eliminated, with Lala going home last week and Tamisha the week before. Despite being “obvious” I would have secretly liked […]

‘We Are The Champions’ Review (Netflix)

by Rhys Payne

A while ago I reviewed a show called Home Game, which shined a light on the many local sports which people not of that country would not be aware of. This series, We Are The Champions, is somewhat similar – although it is not focused on hyperlocal sports but instead international events that people may […]

‘Ru Paul’s Drag Race UK 2×06’ Review

by Rhys Payne

Last weeks episode of Ru Paul’s Drag Race UK will go down as one of the most memorable in episodes of Drag Race her-story! It started with all the queens been sent home and forced to quarantine for 7 months which was crazy; we had the return and second elimination of the international cabaret sensation […]

‘Ru Paul’s Drag Race 13×07’ Review

by Rhys Payne

In last weeks episode of the US version of Ru Paul’s Drag Race, we saw the elimination of the people’s queen Tamisha Imann. She had entered the hearts of the viewers from the moment she entered the werk room and so many people (myself included) was left devastated by her exit. Tamisha managed to maintain […]

‘Ru Paul’s Drag Race UK 2×05’ Review

by Rhys Payne

Okay, so the opening of this weeks episode of Ru Paul’s Drag Race UK was the most unusual in drag race her-story for multiple reasons! The episode starts with the queens discussing the iconic self-elimination of the enigma that is Ginny Lemon. A queen walking out during a lip-sync had never happened before, so seeing […]

‘Ru Paul’s Drag Race 13×06’ Review

by Rhys Payne

In last weeks episode of Ru Paul’s Drag Race, we saw Joey Jay sashay-away which is a shame as she bought a perspective new and exciting view of drag so it’ll be exciting to see where she end up in the coming months! Additionally, in the last episode we saw one of the best-crafted looks […]

‘Bonding: Season 2’ Review (Netflix)

by Rhys Payne

Bonding is one of those programmes that you discover while deep-scrolling through the Netflix archives but turns out to be an incredible show that makes your wonder why is no one talking about it? I originally reviewed the first season of this show almost two years ago before joining the Nerdly team and the reason […]

‘Ru Paul’s Drag Race UK 2×04’ Review

by Rhys Payne

Ru Paul’s Drag Race UK is quickly becoming one of the most unpredictable shows in modern television. Last week we watched Astina sashay away despite having previously won a challenge (where most of the other girls have not) ;on top of two fan-favourites going home very early in the series. It’s impossible to guess who […]

‘Blown Away: Season 2’ Review

by Rhys Payne

One of the first-ever shows that I reviewed, over two years ago, was a Netflix original series called Blown Away; a show which shines a light of the often ignored art form of glass blowing. I was super excited that this sector was allowed to be shown to a wider audience to get the recognition […]

‘Ru Paul’s Drag Race 13×05’ Review

by Rhys Payne

In last weeks episode of Ru Paul’s Drag Race we bid farewell to the gorgeous Kahmora Hall, which must be particularly difficult considering her ‘sister’ Jaida Essence Hall won the previous season of Drag Race. We also bore witness to one of the greatest lip-sync performances in drag race herstory by the dancing diva Denali, […]

‘Ru Paul’s Drag Race UK 2×03’ Review

by Rhys Payne

It seems like every Drag Race review I write starts with a moment of silence for the queen who went home the week before. It’s getting impossible to predict who is going home week by week as two of the heavy hitters, and my personal favourites, have gone home in the first two weeks – […]

This is the episode that every Ru Paul’s Drag Race fan has been waiting for, for what seems like the longest time (but it’s only been three weeks!) This weeks episode is when the two groups of queens finally come together to compete against everyone! It already seemed like the show is relying on Eliott […]

‘Ru Paul’s Drag Race UK 2×02’ Review

by Rhys Payne

Ru Paul’s Drag Race UK deserves a massive round of applause for one of the most conducive episodes I have ever seen. If we ignore the mini-challenge in this episode; the runway, main challenge and judging panned were used perfectly in tandem to give a very well structure and thematic episode. The episode revolves around […]

Season 13 of Ru Paul’s Drag Race has been a rollercoaster of a series so far with shocking lip-syncs in the opening episode, to the inclusion of the franchise first-ever trans man… and the exciting journey continues!

So last weeks opening episode of Ru Paul’s Drag Race Season 13 received mixed reviews from fans around the world. While the twist of lip-syncs as soon as the queens entered the werk room was, at first, very exciting it fizzled out quickly when everyone had to watch the same scene played over and over […]

Every year at Christmas/New Years period people constantly complains that there is “nothing good on TV” which is only exaggerated this year with all the limitations on filming with the new Covid guidelines.

‘Big Mouth: Season 4’ Review (Netflix)

by Rhys Payne

Objectively speaking, I am a massive fan of Big Mouth and have reviewed the show since the first season in 2017. But, for those of you who have not heard of this show before, it’s an animated mature comedy about children going through puberty… Which sounds like it shouldn’t work (and at times does become […]
