The Introduction

Off in Belt Buckle Bay, an often uneventful town, there are three who protect the freedom and highlight of local gay boys and girls – The Super Drags. There is Safira, a dainty girl who day persona is Ralph – a makeup artist. Then there is Patrick, a tech wiz whose drag persona is Lemon. Lastly, there is Donizete, aka Scarlet, when in drag, who is all about that commission from selling store cards. Together, under the advisement of Champagne, they fight the forces of evil. Be it Reverend Sandoval, a homophobic pastor; talk show host Jezebel; or Lazy Elza, who sucks the life out of young gays to become youthful again.

Question(s) Left Unanswered

  1. Why did Champagne pick these three specific people and who came before them? Also, are all their powers based on their gaydar and thus anyone can have powers or do you need a special something?


It’s A Silly Show, But So Comical

A guy complaining he wasted time doing a enema.
My enema was all for nothing!

To put it simply, this show is ridiculous. You have these three heroes, who give you a PowerPuff Girls, if not Sailor Moon vibe, facing off against “The Terrible Forces of Shade.” Then they have this Charlie’s Angels type figure as a boss, and the villains we’ve met? They just make you want to roll your eyes. Yet, I should note, this show, in general,  makes you wanna roll your eyes — but with a smile. Because this show really does capture the extraness of drag and translate it to animated form. Not just by how the girls look, but what they do.

Take Lemon, right before saving a villain, who is knocked out, squeezing the dude’s genitals just because she couldn’t help herself. Much less letting him go because she thought he was cute. On top of that, we got Lady Elza pulling a Winifred Sanderson, from Hocus Pocus, to be young and beautiful again. All the while, we got all these quips and shady jokes which will surely get at least one good laugh out of you. Especially as the show uses celebrity names to push jokes/insults.

On The Fence

It’s Definitely Not For Everyone

From its animation style to the jokes, it does seem this show isn’t going to win over many beyond who you’d think this show is for. Focusing on the animation, it feels just a few ticks above a basic 90s cartoon, and isn’t the most visually appealing. Then, with the jokes, as is custom to drag culture, or at least mainstream drag culture, the jokes are very corny. There isn’t a single one that requires thought and if you don’t have a decent foundation on gay lingo and culture, you’ll be lost and probably feel this show is not for novices.

First Impression: Mixed (Stick Around)

The main thing holding this back from being marked positive is the animation. Set that aside and this could have maybe been in the lower echelons of having a positive first impression. For while the jokes aren’t the strongest, and the mixing of PowerPuff Girls, Charlie’s Angels, and more can be hit or miss, this is rather enjoyable. Add in it is only 5 episodes, so it isn’t a huge commitment, and it seems like a good binge watch.

But, it is hard to get past the animation, even though you know the style does match the humor. Hence the mixed label. This is something which can definitely grow on you, maybe become what some call “A guilty pleasure” but it needs time. Mostly in the form of you needing time to adjust to the zaniness of the production.
