‘Ru Paul’s Drag Race 13×16’ Review

by Rhys Payne

We have finally reached the final episode of Ru Paul’s Drag Race! This has been a season that has created some incredibly iconic moments like Lala Ri’s bag dress compared to Utica’s sleeping bag outfit or Symone’s powerful BLM outfit. We also had the first-ever trans man competing on the show (Gottmik) who has given […]

‘Ru Paul’s Drag Race 13×15’ Review

by Rhys Payne

This weeks episode of Ru Paul’s Drag Race was not a traditionally normal one. As we are only one episode away from the finale of the season, the queen met up (albeit virtually) to talk about the season and recap some of the most iconic moments. I talked in a previous review about how this […]

‘Ru Paul’s Drag Race 13×14’ Review

by Rhys Payne

Last week saw both Kandy Muse and Olivia Lux in the bottom two with Olivia been told to leave the competition. She had only been doing drag for just over a year so to get this far in the competition (beating out drag icons such as Tina Burner and Tamisha Imann) is incredible! I can’t […]

‘Prank Encounters: Season 2’ Review (Netflix)

by Rhys Payne

A little while ago I reviewed the first season of Prank Encounters that was hosted by the enchanting Gaten Mazzerato. I hadn’t heard anything about the show since, so I assumed that there would be no second season but to my surprise, Netflix released another season! This is a show that is somewhat similar to […]

‘Ru Paul’s Drag Race 13×13’ Review

by Rhys Payne

People are still talking about last weeks roast, due to the accusations of body shaming by Utica, who went home. She has since apologised for her ‘jokes’ but I am sure this is not how she would want to be remembered in the competition. Instead, I hope people will remember her for her iconic fashion, […]

‘Nailed It: Season 5’ Review

by Rhys Payne

Nailed It has created its own niche in the television market, so much so that I can’t imagine the show coming to an end any time soon! There are so many tweaks and alterations season by season (like, for example, pairing the contestants up – which they did for this specific season), to make the […]

‘Ru Paul’s Drag Race 13×12’ Review

by Rhys Payne

Due to the few early episodes where we met the queens in one vs one lip-syncs and the proceeding episodes where no one went home, this season of Ru Paul’s Drag Race seems to be never ending. At this rate, the finale episode (I wonder if they will do a big scale event or not) […]

‘Waffles and Mochi’ Review (Netflix)

by Rhys Payne

On March 21st it was ‘International Puppet Day’ which celebrated ventriloquists all over the world (don’t worry I didn’t know either!) and I have recently reignited my love for puppetry as an art form and how entertaining it can be done… if done right. Now I love the likes of Jeff Dunham and Avenue Q, […]

‘Ru Paul’s Drag Race 13×11’ Review

by Rhys Payne

Last week episodes of Ru Paul’s Drag Race had a theme that ran through the mini, main and lip-sync song which made it must more congestive viewing-wise! We also saw the very controversial elimination of Denali whom many thought would win the competition. If you remember, Denali was told to leave after Olivia made her […]

‘Ru Paul’s Drag Race UK 2×10’ Review

by Rhys Payne

We have made it to the finale episode of Ru Paul’s Drag Race UK second season and what a season it has been! For the audience, this season of Drag Race has only been on the television for 10 weeks but for the queens on the show the competition lasted just under a year with […]

‘Marriage Or Mortgage’ Review (Netflix)

by Rhys Payne

Now let me start this weeks review by painting you a picture… Imagine you and your partner have saved up around $30,000 but you have to decide whenever to have the wedding of your dreams OR the house of your dreams (I know which I would choose but that’s beside the point). I know many […]

‘Canine Intervention’ Review (Netflix)

by Rhys Payne

Nothing used to fill me with excitement more than going for a walk and seeing all the cute dogs that were also out and about. This has become less common due to the current global situation… Now if you saw the cover photo for the new Netflix original series Canine Intervention you would be led […]

‘Ru Paul’s Drag Race 13×10’ Review

by Rhys Payne

In last weeks episode of Ru Paul’s Drag Race, we saw the return of the iconic snatch games with had a very mixed bag of impressions. We had a modern interpretation of Mary Queen of Scots by Rosè (who has since created a hilarious sketch of this character adapting to modern life in New York) […]

‘Ru Paul’s Drag Race UK 2×09’ Review

by Rhys Payne

Well… last weeks episode of Ru Paul’s Drag Race UK was a lot! We had a very interesting comedy challenge performed in front of an empty audience, with one of the queens jokes having to be bleeped-out due to their nan ringing up the BBC (it was A’whora); we had drama by the bucket full; […]

‘Ru Paul’s Drag Race 13×09’ Review

by Rhys Payne

Now the production team at Ru Paul’s Drag Race are shady but know exactly what they are doing! In the last episode, we saw Kandy and Symone in the bottom two with Ru Paul deciding to award the converted double shantay (double save of you will) which cause outrage with the fans on social media! […]

‘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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
