Clearly there are RuPaul's Drag Race fans on this side of the pond, who are stupefied spoiled brats, who leave one star trashy reviews of an iconic and award-winning television show. It isn't World of Wonder's fault, it's not Amazon's fault, nor is it RuPaul's fault, that the U.K. episodes have already aired in the U.K. (which is appropriate considering each queen lives there), while each episode is made available in the U.S., the day after the episode is broadcast on LOGO TV. If they have a beef about the show, take it to LOGO TV. It's puerile and disingenuous to say you're being ripped off, or the show stinks, when we know you won't miss one minute of an episode of the new U.K. Series.
For true DRAG RACE fans, season one of RuPaul's Drag Race U.K. is a winner! The accents are different, and the pool of talent is smaller (with 1 UK drag queen for every 5 in the USA), this group of ten queens is highly entertaining and talented. RuPaul's couture gowns are incredible, and it's a joy to watch comics Alan Carr and Graham Norton as judges. Alan Carr is one of the funniest comedians on the planet, and I know that American audiences will love him.
I've seen the first four episodes of RuPaul's Drag Race U.K., and this is the same winning formula that we love and have grown accustomed to. Ignore the bad reviews here and check the show out yourself. Each episode so far has the same joy, laughter, tears and love that keeps us coming back for more. Long live the queens - I mean DRAG QUEENS - on both sides of the pond. And may the best woman win!

The show would be great. ...IF I COULD WATCH IT. ("Don't rate a show based on Amazon not showing it") Really Queen? If I can't watch it I can't rate it now can I? This rating is based on AMAZON's inability to deliver WHAT WAS PAID FOR!
Do not buy this, AMAZON doesn't seem to have the rights to sell it...or they don't know how to deliver it.
I found it refreshing but I’m bias being American. I’m sure most people feel the same as Americans are very harsh, loud, and meaner queens. I just didn’t understand most of the references and that’s my own fault. Even though I’ve been to the UK twice it was never a place I enjoyed like the rest of Europe. The top three girls were hilarious and amazing some of the other girls needed a lot of work. I’m sure season 2 will be ten stars and those with most experience and more “seasoned queens will “turn it” to make it a classic. The snatch game was just as good or better than the talented jinx monsoon, Bianca Del Río, Chad michaels, and Tatianna. The first seasons (American version) of RPDR, were amazing the rest lost their touch. The girls were by far much nicer in the UK and I felt that they were so excited to be compete, the movement was in the motherland and drag queens received the respect and national spot they deserve too in the UK. The reason I didn’t enjoy like the American counterparts, is because the lipsynching isn’t as dramatic or energetic but I’m sure after this season the girls will fight and improve and may easily beat Americans. It was a Godsend especially during this covid nonsense!
