The third season of Queer Eye is uplifting, informative and as emotionally profound as ever.
Just as the tagline boasts, Queer Eye really is so much more than a makeover. Participants don’t just get a new hairdo, they get a whole new attitude and an interior design transformation to go with it. What is so special about the show is that it genuinely feels like these 5 sassy gay guys are changing lives.
The first noticeable difference about season 3 is that half of the episodes revolved around women, whereas the first season focuses on men exclusively. In the season opener, the crew take a huntress on a physical and psychological journey to feeling her best and most beautiful self. Physically, she underwent one of the most gorgeous transformation yet her experience of feeling beautiful for the first time in years is even more lovely than her stunning blond locks.
The standout episode of the season is
Although “Black Magic Woman” stood out the most, that’s not to say the other episodes weren’t powerful too. Every makeover had its moments and Karamo’s visual depiction of a gamer understanding that he has isolated himself from the outside world was deeply moving. “Jones Bar-B-Q” was another memorable episode.
Overall, the new season was at the very least, uplifting and emotional to watch. More than this, it left us feeling empowered, inspired and filled with the wisdom imparted by five sassy queer guys.
