If RuPaul’s Drag Race is back on TV — call it a “Lost Season,” call it the long-unseen Season 1, or call it “The Greatest Story Ever Tucked” — you can bet your sweet gherkins that my demented, drag-loving dog-butt is going to be popping up in a little video to recap it. SO… Here ’tis!
And what a season it is! The original Drag Race queens… The divas who started it all… Juggling, the “Loca”-liciousness, the never-ending chants of Camerooooooon! It’s all begging to be reveled in again. And truly what’s just as amazing as the charmingly low-budget production elements is the fact that all of the smarts, cleverness and heart of the show as we know and love it are all there from the very first episode.
So please enjoy. And warning: This first “Lost Season” Extra Lap Recap is a manic love-fest as I try to focus on the landmark nature of what you’re viewing. I mean, this is the episode that launched a thousand lip-syncs! Can you even remember a time when “condragulations,” “bring back my girls” or “…while you untuck in the Interior Illusions lounge” was not part of your daily lexicon? Me neither! So watch and get refreshed!!!
AND WATCH OUT: This recap is packed full of extra-special RuPaul commentary you won’t see elsewhere! Gag a little, raise your church fan, wait for the Faye Dunaway/Chinatown homage and feel the spirit!!!
And then come back next Tuesday for more Ru-cappery… Besos!
