I got a press release from Bravo heralding the final season of Queer Eye which starts on October 2nd. I thought Queer Eye got canceled long, long ago. The release says this is their fifth season but I think Bravo is using that term very loosely. The show started on July 15, 2003 but if it has been running continuously for five seasons they must be hiding it in the commercials for Top Chef or something because I haven't seen it.
I loved Queer Eye when it first started and I think everyone would still enjoy it if NBC and everyone over there hadn't run it into the ground as fast as possible. It's almost like they said, OMG, we have a gay show that everyone loves and so put it on all of our networks. All of them, including Telemundo. "Hola Carson"
Instead we got an episode here and there and they just ruined it. So, I guess I will try and make an effort to at least watch the season premiere because it will be reunion of sorts of the people they have helped over the past "five seasons." It will be done in a beauty pageant format with Susan Lucci (maybe I won't watch) hosting.
