LOGO Explains the Lack of Season 1Nov 09, 2011
By Cesar A. Fernandez
Just like everyone else, I was ecstatic to see these shows finally get a DVD release. But just like everyone else, I had some questions I wanted answered before purchasing. Rather than freaking out and spamming the comments with "WHERE'S SEASON 1?!?!?!?", I decided to go straight to the source and ask the team over at RuPaul's Drag Race directly, via Facebook. These were my questions, and these were their answers:
Me: "Is Season 1 coming to DVD as well? And are the "Untucked!" episodes included with the Season 2 & 3 DVD's?"
LOGO: "Hi doll, lucite heels are clear, but some of our music for season one couldn't be cleared. Untucked isn't on the DVDs but lots of extras."
So understand ladies and ladyboys, they did try to put Season 1 on DVD, but licensing the music (probably Destiny's Child) was probably a bit too expensive. But don't be sad, Amazon sells all of Season 1 digitally, so at least you can own it in some form.

A Refreshing Addition to Gay CultureJul 25, 2012
Although I am a gay man, for so long I found it difficult to swallow that gay culture existed. Our social group seems to be obsessed with sex and superficial squandering. And in a time when ultra-masculinity is the new moustache, nothing feels exciting or refreshing anymore. I understand being different is difficult and folks want to fit in and show the world the gays can be just like everyone else, but when did we stop expressing our authentic selves?
Enter Drag Race. Start with Project Runway . . . toss in a little Tyra, a lot of humor, and finish with a ton of sass. That's the show. The contestants have a new challenge every week, each progressively tougher, and in the end the "Next Drag Superstar" is crowned. The production value increases from Season One and there are more and better contestants. You'll definitely find one hell of an entertaining ride here.
I grew up watching drag queens perform in the gay bars, and to be honest I found them a bit scary. I believe many people, especially men, feel this way because we are uncomfortable with our feminine side, which these gentle-wo-men find so easy to express. After watching the show, you'll have new respect for drag queens and see it's definitely an art form.
So in terms of gay culture, Rupaul gives it. He shows us that while being different is tough, nothing is more valuable than loving and expressing yourself. I've never been more impressed or proud with a gay celebrity than I am with Rupaul. He is truly a Super(role)model. YOU . . . better . . . WORK!

By Matthew Anderson
How can you pass up the season that bore Jujubee, Raven, and Pandora Boxx? Three of the best queens in the game, this season is OVUH.

Where the frock is Season 1 & Untucked!?Oct 18, 2011
RuPaul's Drag Race continues to wow me season after season. Their was no hesitation when it came to buying Season 2 on dvd. I am glad to see that it is uncensored...BUT WHERE IS SEASON 1? Season 1 was what started it all with some of my favorites, Nina Flowers & Ongina!!! AND WHERE IS UNTUCKED!? Untucked is a HUUUUUGEEEEE part of the show...this season cannot be complete without seeing Mystique yell "BITCH I AM FROM CHICAGO!"
Also i know LOGO explained why the first season would not be released, saying the music could not be cleared and instead of Untucked...that their would be lots of bonus features...yet there was only a few. The bonus features include meet the contestants, a closer look at the outfits from the "gone with the window" episode, Grand finale acting scenes & Reunion fan questions answered.
Overall i am happy with the Season 2 Release, but i can only rate this 3 out of 5 stars. I hope to see Season 1 & both seasons of Untucked released soon!!!
