I’ve only seen a couple episodes of the new Queer Eye, but I enjoyed the ones I did. Honestly, the most powerful one was when Karamo happened to be driving (they swear this was a coincidence) when the makeover subject’s cop friend pulled them over, and pretended it was real before identifying himself with a cackle; Karamo’s obvious discomfort at this interaction, as a black homosexual man in the South who wasn’t sure what he was walking into, led to conversations between him and the actual subject — also a cop — that were pretty raw and unexpected for a show that mostly just wants to make people look snazzy and live and feel better. I love it when people sneak in a little learning with their hugging.
