Netflix’s Queer Eye is three seasons old and it is a rage worldwide. A makeover show headlined by five gay guys is doing the show a great disservice as a one-liner description, so we decided to go into what makes this show so awesome. Originally a remake of an older show, Queer Eye is not just a show, it is a cultural phenomenon. Here’s why you should be watching it.
1) More than just a makeover show.
First things first, Queer Eye is a lot more than just a makeover of someone’s life. Each episode has a ‘hero’ – someone nominated to undergo the ‘makeover’. And while some tangible aspects of the person are changed like their home, their hair and their wardrobe, they go through a cathartic experience of re-discovering themselves on the show.
2) It will make you laugh, smile, and happy-cry
If you are looking for a feel-good watch after a bad day, look no further than Queer Eye. We challenge you to not tear up for atleast a few episodes. The show goes deep into people’s lives and stories and while each transformation lasts 5 days, seeing their lives come around is truly heart-warming.
3) You meet some amazing people and hear their stories
Queer Eye is an opportunity to learn about diverse stories and how people have used some of the biggest challenges in their lives as a gateway to their life’s purpose. Whether it is Mama Tammye, a cancer survivor, Skyler, a transgender struggling with identity, or Wesley, a disabled man, we meet them and are inspired instantly.
4) In a bleak world, Queer Eye gives us hope
If you are let down by the happenings of the world around you as most of us, Queer Eye is a reminder that humanity exists. Its underlying message is that we are all more similar than we are different and that we should unite to help each other. It is a reminder we all need and we can learn from.
5) Last but not least, the Fab 5
The five men who are the magic-makers in the show are also the best thing about it. Tan France, Jonathan Van Ness, Bobby Berk, Antoni Porowski and Karamo Brown will end up being your favourites, both on screen and off it. They genuinely seem to be as nice as they seem on the show and once you get hooked to them, you will never have enough.
Three seasons of Queer Eye are streaming on Netflix.
