I actually caught yesterday's episode (first one I've seen). It was pretty damn funny, especially their comments upon first entering the house.

"What is this, art?"
"Yeah, sort of. Why, do you like it?"
"No. It's horrible."

You might double check, but I think new episodes are on Tuesday nights, 9 p.m. central time, so 10 eastern.

Also, I caught a few of the older episodes on Saturday afternoon between 4 and 7 p.m. central time. And the show is on the Bravo channel.

'Queer Eye' Sets Record for Bravo

http://www.cnn.com/2003/SHOWBIZ/TV/0...eut/index.html

And here is another article that discusses the issue of stereotypes and how the show was created.

I think the reruns are on Thursdays at 9 or 10.

I really don't think it's overly stereotypical of gays - anymore than it is stereotyping straight men as hopeless, sloppy buffoons with no fashion sense.

Of course my friend and I who watch together on the phone call it our 'Joe Millionaire" so we are aware that it is a guilty pleasure and kind of crap TV - but there is hardly anything on that isn't.

I can't stomach reality shows

they're more staged than actual sitcoms or dramas

watching it, I can see the grimey fingerprints of producers molding it the way they want...it's annoying.
like that fucking "who wants to marry my dad"
what a horrible show. those lie detectors and the magic shows and the fax machine (oooooh....the fax machine is going off...que the slow motion and dramatic sound effects). survivor is not much better.

of course, I haven't seen this queer eye one, so maybe it's not so fake.

Me too! I finally saw some episodes tonight--hysterical!

Actually, I think they do a great job too. Make-over shows are generally terrible and fakey (with the exception of the British "What Not To Wear") but this one is very well done, imho.

For those who watch the show, does a portion of the entertainment come from the fulfilling of stereotypes?
Yes.

Let me go on the record as saying I have been liking the show but I am starting to find it boring. It is the same thing again, and again, and again.

With the bordom at the last episode, I started thinking about the stereotyping. Part of the show's humor is not just in the stereotyping of some of the Fab Five, but in the stereotyping of the straight guy on the show.

I am betting that my fascination with the show that I thought I was hooked on fades rapidly. I also think if it were reveresed and fight straight guys were remaking gay men, the world would be up in arms. I will watch again, but I think I may be tired of this show quickly.

I have watched two shows and enjoyed them.

As for the "stereotyping" well they say there is a little truth behind all stereotyping.

Of course, any one picked for a "make over" is going to be clueless. I do not see that as Straight casting, but a necessity for the show.

What is nice about it, is the concern the fab five has for the feelings and success of their client.

The fab five were obviously chosen for their abilities.

I have two gay friends that desperately need their services.

The reverse argument often times is a good test for reasonableness. It dose not always apply.

If you are going to say Liberal politician should be treated the same as a Conservative politician for making a bigoted statement, that makes sense.

Sorry, but survey says gay man is better at interior decorating than straight man.

I like the show but do agree that I think this show is part of the "reality shows" trend and that once people see it enough times it will star to get old BUT saying that I love the show. It's to funny!!
