Topic: Queer Eye for the Straight Guy


  
  Queer Eye for the Straight Guy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Queer Eye for the Straight Guy is an hour-long American television series that premiered on the Bravo cable television network on July 15, 2003, and promptly became both a surprise hit (at least by the standards of cable TV) and one of the most talked-about television programs of 2003.
The Queer Eye cast has helped prepare for such events as a marriage proposal, a first dinner with a girlfriend's parents, and a backyard barbecue.
Queer Eye was briefly broadcast on terrestrial channel Channel 4 in the UK, but gained low ratings.

The show starkly reveals the cultural mythos of straight and gay: it's as though pure artifice meets primal nature, as if Marie Antoinette's Minister of Etiquette and Frippery were trying to acclimate a gorilla to life at the French court.
A sub-theme is the flirtation of gay with straight men, and the straight guys usually seem almost pathetically grateful to have someone with taste help them pick out their furniture.
But one guy is listed as a "culture" consultant, and the chances that I am going to defer to a gay dj in matters of culture are none and none.

QEFTSG is nothing more than an acceptable and fluffy view of gay men, sort of like asexual butterflies, that straight viewers can ooh and ah at because these guys have beamed down from outer space for all they know.
Straight men were chosen for this premise because of the culture clash and society's tiny little niches for straight and gay men, not because straight men are yokels in need of rescuing.
Queer Eye Jumped The Shark when Jai (the useless one) became the ringleader, trying to be all butch by rounding up the other guys and being the team leader.

Fitting into the genre of both reality television and "make-over" programs, Queer Eye for the Straight Guy stars five openly gay men (Ted Allen, Kyan Douglas, Thom Filicia, Carson Kressley, and Jai Rodriguez), each of whom has a particular talent (food and wine; grooming; interior design; fashion; and "culture," respectively).
Indeed, many other homosexuals praised the program for its matter-of-fact portrayal of openly gay men as well as for its mostly warm-hearted approach which is so at variance with other reality TV programs.
The series' success was such that television networks in both the UK and Australia announced by the autumn of 2003 that they would be creating localized versions of Queer Eye for the Straight Guy for broadcast in their countries.

They're funny, incredibly optimistic (I mean, when they first encounter the straight guy challenge du jour, how can they keep from turning right around and leaving those slobs in their squalor?), and by the end of the show, you sense they really care about the success of the straight guy's makeover objective.
That guy was hilarious because of the way he was trying to be so tough and manly in front of the guys and then went to being so animated, almost “girly” in front of his woman, even to the point of using the word “divine”.

 Queer Eye for the Straight Guy | PopMatters Television Review
In the premiere episode of Queer Eye, the victim (their term, not mine), Butch Schepel, gets shredded in the manicured claws of his image benefactors.
Why people sacrifice their intimacies and dignity for a peripheral stab at minor, fleeting recognition is absolutely beyond me. It's almost as if television has become the supreme existential validation and no one can be said to have lived if they haven't at some point nationalized their groping wants.
Harvilesky does have a point, though, when she says Queer Eye is "destined to have you cackling with evil glee." Even I laughed a couple of times, between shudders.

First and foremost I absolutely adore the US version of queer eye, but this doesn't even compare to it.
All the people on the show are really unfunny and camp and the end result of the makeover never makes you go WOW like the US version.
But the absolute worst thing about this show is that it has lost all the charm and wit which attracted me to the original.

 Queer Eye for the Straight Guy
Sure, Queer Eye is not about homosexuality as such but about dressing in a way that gays admire.
In it, a girl and a guy assist various men and women with their wardrobes, hygiene, etc. Like any art, these skills are not obvious to everyone, and personal shoppers and makeup artists are artists in every sense of the word.
The truth is that in general, straight men tend to be pigs, and in general, gay men tend to be tidy, well-dressed, and mindful of their physiques -- is it necessarily a bad thing to learn from the positive habits of gays?

If this series were called Straight Eye for the Queer Guy, its producers would be forever banished from the Left Coast for bashing gays.
While the aesthetic results of Queer Eye’s makeovers are sometimes impressive, the banter that flies throughout the process is saturated with homosexual innuendo.

Rather than force change, Thom has the keen eye to accentuate his subject's taste in the redecoration process.
His quiet manner, simple (but by no means minimalist) aesthetic and confidence-boosting touch allow the men to rearrange their house to still feel like home, while successfully pleasing mothers, sisters, girlfriends and wives.
Burdened with various arduous chores (teaching a graceless guy how to work a room is a tricky task, indeed), his creative, gimmicky tactics make the men appear smooth with only a hint of doofus, instead of the other way around.
