Is this the Bravo reality show? Or am I COMPLETELY lost?

Quite a turn for me....Since moving, I have only watched TV when staying in a hotel room. I don't even have my TV plugged in.

I haven't seen it, but my gay friends hate it and from what I've read about it, I don't blame them.

I read the thred backwards, knowing what the show was about.

I am sorry Yertle, but I just about fell on the fllor laughing when I read this. I am SURE you did not mean this statement in the same context that I read it in.

I think it is WAY too fast, but, hopefully, it will help straight guys realize that they have something in common with gay guys. I don't know; I doubt too many "straight" guys watch Bravo anyway.

How come? What have you read about it?

I've only seen one episode but I loved it. Good tips, funny, and the guy looked pretty good in the end.

Because it presents gays as prissy stereotypes. And straight men as stupid. I guess. I don't know--I haven't seen it. Of course stereotypes exist but it doesn’t serve the gay community in a homophobic society to constantly present only these stereotypes without balancing it out with non-stereotypes. Within my large group of gay friends, not one of them is a decorator, stylist or hairdresser. They are clinical nutritionists, mortgage loan officers, gardeners, landscapers, publishers, editors, writers, dentists. “Six Feet Under” is the only show I’ve seen that presents a nice range and balance of realistic gay people (but I haven’t seen “Queer as Folk” which apparently is really great, too).

Here's an excerpt from the Village Voice that presents a pretty balanced review of the show, written by a gay man--not negative at all, actually, but interesting, and I guess this excerpt outlines my concern. But the review also offers many positives about the show, so I'm interested to see it (when I renew my cable in the fall):

But then, Queer Eye isn't really about getting a sartorial education. The makeover is just the surface of this spectacle. Its deeper draw is the relationship between two seemingly antagonistic types. Here, straight guys let down their guard before a squad of swishies and welcome the results. I suppose it's a sign of progress that this interchange looks plausible, but it's a measure of how far we haven't come that the meeting must be staged on stereotypical ground.
