I don't mean to undersell this show but IT IS THE GREATEST THING THAT HUMANKIND HAS CREATED. No Joke, No Question, No Comparison.
10 June 2017 | by horridhendySee all my reviews

I'm sorry but it is a crime against humanity that this show is not allowed to be rated 11/10, I know that's an impossible score to give but it is equally impossible to think of how any TV show could be rated anywhere close to how fabulous this TV show is. It has created A WORLD. There is now a Drag Con, there are COUNTLESS web shows, Rucap shows and music that has come from this show.

It is better than The Godfather, Pulp Fiction, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones combined times one hundred by a LONG SHOT.

I don't think the English language has the requisite language to even remotely describe how insanely transcendent this programme is. If there is a God then this is the only TV show (s)he deigns to watch.

You will never watch anything that will ever live up to this show. It is EVERYTHING. If you disagree, call the "NURSE" and "SHUT YOUR UGLY BOAT MOUTH" because "I SAID I FELT". You may read this review and think "GOOD GOD GIRL GET A GRIP" but "DONUT COME FOR ME" because this show makes me "FLOOD MY BASEMENT".

"This show is PERFECT, it's BEAUTIFUL, it's the best show on Television, You're amazing, Everything about you is PERFECT. Did you produce this show yourself? The audience EATS IT UP EVERY SINGLE TIME an episode comes out. This show could release it's worst episode and the audience would still be like "RuPaul's Drag Race" your programme is BEAUTIFUL."

"HALLELOO", "YES GAWD". "OKURRRR". *Tongue Pop*
