It could so easily be nauseating, but the Fab Fives life-affirming makeover show still has a impressive knack for staying the right side of saccharine
After two wonderful, weepy, life-affirming seasons of Queer Eye( Netflix ), there were bound to be questions about longevity. How many more the National T-shirts could Antoni perhaps own? Will France cause its namesake Tan honorary citizenship for pioneering the French Tuck? Can avocados ever be the only ingredient in a recipe? I would gladly take an endless number of its makeovers- there’s nothing more heartwarming than a lumberjack detecting he desires himself- but inevitably, there will be a question, more, over whether it can still churn out the freshness it fetched when it first made an up-to-date spin on its old-time guise, Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, at the start of 2018.
The Fab Five do not balk at fridges full of leftovers on the turn, or T-shirts that have long since missed their yell as a dishrag, and for this third season, they have pointed that can-do attitude towards their own format. That’s not to say there are any progressive differences in the premise: five homosexual people, in differing colours of preposterous, thought to the midwest of America to meet people whose lives need shaking up and give them motivational speeches about self-worth and self-care while straightening up their impression. There are still, however, attempts to widen the net- to make it precisely that little bit different.
