Why Queer Eye’s common-ground approach doesn’t make sense in 2018
On the Netflix reality show, it’s up to the Fab Five to search for common ground while “the subjects must simply be polite and passively tolerant,” says J. Bryan Lowder. As he points out, that approach is “wildly at odds with the shows other demands. The queens must calm their clients with assurances of sameness while simultaneously drawing on their profound difference—particularly on the world-transforming aesthetic skills and sensibilities for which gay men have long been derided as sissies or stereotypes—in order to bring their students revitalization and happiness. Indeed, the more I reflect on Queer Eye, the more I feel like the whole thing is a queasy-making trade of queer talent and joy (see how the straight man, moribund just yesterday, now grins so brightly!) for little more than a ‘Well, y’all are all right.’”

Netflix’s Queer Eye seems like an awkward fit in these "woke" times
Looking back at the original Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, the five stars had — with the exception of Carson Kressley — personalities that “were all pretty muted and down-to-earth,” says Kevin Fallon. “I had prepared myself for a cacophony of men in a**less chaps snapping their fingers and shouting ‘fierce’ every three seconds; in reality, they were certainly quippy, but also just normal, competent guys.” In the Netflix Queer Eye, “the men in the reboot are appealingly well-intentioned, but hardly as calibrated,” he says. The problem, he adds, is that the new Fab Five “subscribe to the modern reality-TV idea that LOUDER! IS! BETTER! At some point, this grating big-ness became the default for anyone looking to make an impression on reality TV, but it generally has the effect of seeming artificial and hollow. It’s a shame, because the encounters the hosts have with the men whose lifestyles they’re meant to rehab are, once the hysteria settles, quite genuine. Beautiful, even.”

- The Atlanta-set reboot seems recalibrated “slightly but emphatically… for the Trump era”
