Queer Eye Gets Political: How Netflix’s Reboot Makes Over Homes, Outfits and Minds Down South

  • PEOPLE.com
It’s a swampy day in the sleepy town of Winder, Georgia, as Queer Eye’s new Fab Five tears through the modest home of Cory, a police officer with an affinity for Nascar, pickle juice and American flag-printed shorts. His basement is cluttered with beer guzzler helmets and deer antlers, his bedroom closet with his late father’s suits, with which he can’t bear to part.

As the guys giddily rummage through Cory’s belongings, the scene could be straight out of the makeover show’s original run 15 years ago. Until Karamo Brown, the culture expert, discovers Cory

‘Queer Eye’ Star on Reboot: ‘Helping People is Never Going to Get Old’

An iconic TV series known for its eye-popping makeovers just got one of its own.

On Feb. 7, Netflix will unveil eight new one-hour episodes of “Queer Eye” — a freshening up of the groundbreaking 2003-07 Bravo Emmy winner in which five outspoken gay men beautified the lives of hapless city slickers. In its heyday, nearly 3.5 million viewers from all demographics embraced the highbrow superheroes each week. It spawned 13 international editions and one CD soundtrack. Alas, stylist Carson Kressley’s exasperated one-liners are now part of the early-aughts time capsule, along with studded Nokia flip phones and hot pink Juicy Couture sweats.

Enter the Fab Five 2.0: culture expert Karamo Brown, spitfire hairdresser Jonathan Van Ness, no-nonsense decorator Bobby Berk, cosmopolitan fashion pro Tan France and soft-spoken chef Antoni Porowski. They’ve ditched the bustling New York City streets for rural Georgia, focusing on grizzled men of the Red State Deep South. (They’ve also

Help, I'm Really Torn About Netflix's New Queer Eye Reboot

Netflix has released a first look at the upcoming Queer Eye reboot, and it's hard not to feel conflicted. Slated as one of the streaming giant's shiny new 2018 shows, the revival follows the same concept as the original: a group of gay men help one tragic heterosexual clean up every aspect of his life. The trailer is certainly laced with emotional moments that may make you well up in tears. At the same time, though, do we really need to watch footage of straight men asking, "Which one of you is the wife?," in 2018? I can't help but wonder if some aspects of the show - things that may have been daring and educational in 2003 - will come across as dated in the present day. But hey, guess we'll just have to wait and see. Queer Eye drops Feb. 7.

Queer Eye Returns: See the Heartwarming First Trailer for the Netflix Reboot

New crew, new you.  Netflix is about to launch its reboot of Queer Eye, the makeover show that ran for five seasons in the early 2000s on Bravo. It featured a group of five gay men giving complete makeovers to straight men, and the new version is perfectly updated for 2018. As the guys say in the trailer, 10 years later, the fab five are fighting for acceptance instead of tolerance.  The trailer gives us a look at a few of the lucky men whose lives get a bit of a sprucing up, and it's hard not to feel all warm and fuzzy just from the brief look at their transformations and their newfound confidence.  "Gay or straight, a common thread that holds every human...

‘Dark’ Theories and Burning Questions: Jonas’ Fate, the Wallpapered Room, and That Massive Back Tattoo

‘Dark’ Theories and Burning Questions:  Jonas’ Fate, the Wallpapered Room, and That Massive Back Tattoo
[Editor’s Note: The following contains spoilers from the entirety of Netflix’s series “Dark.”]

Netflix’s German supernatural mystery thriller doesn’t fit neatly into any puzzle box, but it sure is addictive and intriguing. Initially built around the case of a missing boy in Winden, “Dark” quickly bursts through the confines of the small town — not by reaching beyond its borders, but beyond its time. The curious time travel element, however, is a tricky one, and two warring forces are trying to control it. Unfortunately, it seems that many young boys have been caught in the middle.

The time travel occurs in 33-year increments, which creates a curious connection with Winden’s past, present, and future. In particular, viewers have gotten to know the young, middle-aged, and older versions of the same characters that hail from a few major families. Trying to keep the various surnames, generations, and each person’s secrets straight is difficult enough, but throw in a kidnapping priest, arcane references,
