BITCH! Go off! I don’t think I’ve been this enthralled by television in a long time as I was during the last three minutes of this week’s Drag Race.
After my first viewing, I felt like I needed to catch my breath. We’ll get to the lip sync in a minute, but first I need to vent. If I don’t, I might explode. Beautiful material. The work of the season, in all honesty.
And what about the incident before it? The rest of it is excellent, too. With this episode, the season as a whole seemed to take a giant leap forward, emerging from its mediocre middle phase and into its thrilling final act.
The episodes are now longer, but there are other factors at play as well. Yes, we are finally back to our regular 90-minute format after a season defined not by the drama in the episodes but by the high-stakes drama of network programming decisions.
Episodes of the first eight seasons of Drag Race, in particular, were complete, satisfying works of art that could be watched in their entirety in just 60 minutes.
There is no doubt that is no longer the case. It’s nice to have some breathing room in this episode, as it’s clear that this is now a show that requires the full 90 minutes.
