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.
September 12, 2019
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.
September 12, 2019
Apparently designed to amuse and annoy gays and straights alike, this is an instance of stereotypes trumpeted proudly and with reckless abandon.

Is TV too afraid of gay men who don't look and act flamboyant and queenie? Probably.
September 12, 2019
One feels an obligation to provide some sort of context when talking about a show called "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy," but the fact is, the program has no particular claim on words like "milestone" or "turning point."
September 12, 2019
Stereotyping? Sure. But if the Fab Five are gay cliches, they are also witty and stylish enough to ensure that Butch looks a whole lot better and not a screaming queen after their day with him.

Queer Eye for the Straight Guy was as polished as Carson [Kressley's] fingernails and as groomed as Kyan [Douglas'] expertly coiffed 'do. Watercooler TV-in-waiting, it's this season's must-have accessory.

Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, is simply fabulous. I love it I love it I love it!
September 12, 2019
[Queer Eye for the Straight Guy] is funny, incredibly warm and moving. And there aren't many comedies on the air or coming this fall that have even one of those characteristics.
September 12, 2019
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

While the stereotypes with which it plays might trouble some viewers at first glance, this is a series with attitude, edge and a keen sense of humor.
September 12, 2019
You'll wish these makeover gurus were headed to your house.

[Queer Eye for the Straight Guy] is a surprisingly funny, sweet, entertaining show that's sort of a one-way Trading Spaces for both the home and the man.
September 12, 2019
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.
September 12, 2019
The appeal of [Queer Eye for the Straight Guy] has nothing to do with stereotypes. It has to do with the way the show fulfills a desire that has come to be almost forbidden in our culture: the desire to be taken care of.
September 12, 2019
It's a fun romp, particularly in its full-hour format.
September 12, 2019
Queer Eye is less a gay reality show than it is a twist on fantasy fulfillment.
September 12, 2019
That the Straight Guy in question isn't so much made over as refocused helps make this hour fun and refreshing.
September 12, 2019
Queer Eye for the Straight Guy is destined to have you cackling with evil glee one minute and vowing to exfoliate the next.
September 12, 2019
Queer Eye is a show about people who need people. It's a gay-straight version of a Michael Jackson-Paul McCartney duet. "Queer Eye" is glasnost.
