You'll wish these makeover gurus were headed to your house.

Besides that stylish "queer eye," there's a zestfully quick ear for wit, whimsy and joie de vivre. You don't have to like makeover shows to love this reality romp.

Top Critic

Echoing the vacuous brain decay of Jack from Will & Grace, Bravo seeks to show gay men as materialistic vamps, style clowns with cock-centered worldviews who see conversation as an opportunity for Three's Company-level double entendres.

The Fab Five often act like fraternity brothers, egging each other on with sexual innuendos and silly hijinks. Still, Queer Eye is one of the more intelligent makeover shows on television.

September 12, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Unfortunately, the hour-long show's formula grows old after a few viewings, and the Fab Five's frequent product plugs start to seem like a worse crime than household clutter.

It's a fun romp, particularly in its full-hour format.
