Netflix got the most Emmy nominations because it had the most shows, not the best ones
With 112 nominations, Netflix overtaking HBO for the most nods "is a reflection of volume, and an emerging status quo," says Willa Paskin. Netflix aired 70 new shows during the nominating period, while HBO aired 20 new and returning shows. "Forget hours: to stay ahead in the prestige game, HBO’s bread and butter, it would seem to have make more series to keep up," says Pasklin. "But there’s another way to look at these numbers. HBO still has way more nominations per show than Netflix does: Of the 10 shows with the most nominations, HBO had three; FX had two; Hulu, Amazon, and Netflix each had one, which is another way of saying that Netflix got the most nominations because it had the most shows, not the best ones." She adds that amid the "overkill" of so many potential contenders, Emmy voters glom on to stuff they could actually remember and start using "brands like HBO, Netflix, and FX to look for contenders. Unlike Netflix and the networks, HBO and FX aren’t trying to appeal to everyone, but in terms of reliably attracting attention for their series, they too are the new networks."

The Fab Five have gone global for the special "make-better" episode Down Under, helping make over a farmer named George in a town that is actually named "Yass." "I think because Australia just legalized their same-sex marriage moment," says Jonathan Van Ness, "it's only fitting that we would sweep into a gorgeous little town and create a gorgeous community moment because, honey, is this rolling hill moment everything? Yes! Do they need a more pulled-together bistro? Probably." ALSO: Antoni Porowski is opening a restaurant.

Queer Eye's return for Season 2 begs the question: How "queer" is it?
Source: The Atlantic
"It’s 2018—how is there a popular new TV show that portrays gay guys as sassy hairdressers, fashionistas, interior designers, platonic best friends, and underwear models who appear to mostly live off amuse-bouches?" says Spencer Kornhaber. "A skeptic of 'woke' culture might argue that the success of Netflix’s rebooted Queer Eye is a sign of latent hunger for the comfort of stereotypes. A sociologist might say we’re seeing the results of decades of prejudice funneling queer men into trades coded as feminine. A superfan might echo the company line, as once articulated by home-décor guru Bobby Berk: 'We’re just five guys who happen to be experts in our field, and who happen to be gay.' The truth probably combines all three explanations. But as highlighted in the second season that now arrives just four months after the first, Queer Eye is queer on a level deeper than its sanctifying of homosexuals as domestic superheroes."

Queer Eye will do its first-ever makeover for a transgender man
“That episode for me I think is one of the most powerful episodes that will ever be seen on TV,” says Karamo Brown of the Season 2 episode. "First of all, usually when we see the first trans experience, we usually see it through the lens of a trans woman. We never really see our trans brothers being highlighted and showing their experience."
