Wonderful seeing the old queens again

I was disappointed that this title was streaming only but realized with my Nexus 7 or new gen. iPad I never really used my DVD player anyway. I never got to see this season when it aired so it was pleasant to have a season one drag marathon uninterrupted. These competitors really set a high bar for the seasons that followed and the majority of the girls have become memorable icons in the world of drag. Several of the recurring challenges that show up from season to season get their start here. I definitely recommend this title and the other seasons as well to get prepared for the upcoming All-stars show this Fall to get acquainted with the fierce queens that will be battling it out.

Love it!

I don't know how I heard about this show, but I found it and absolutely fell in love with it! RuPaul is great and the contestants kept it entertaining! If you've ever seen a drag show, this series kinda gives you a nice glimpse of the catiness that goes on behind the curtains! Who knew there was an art to lip-syncing!?!? =)
