I guess it’s not for everyone – my wife hates it, and only watched the first one with me because she works with Blue Hydrangea’s uncle.
Baga Chipz and The Vivienne have both played in Brighton, so it’s like watching friends on TV. (sic)
I really like drag as an art form – it’s part of what we do, and I see it as extended family.
Some, like my wife, find it an offensive form of parodying women – but having been hooked on the first UK Series, then the Canadian (never really got into the US), I can’t wait for series 2 of UK – and Canada!
I don’t see it as a parody of anything but itself – it really sends itself up, and while the art itself is serious, the show never is.
