The first two seasons of “Queer Eye,” a reboot of the Bravo unscripted hit from more than a decade ago, debuted this year to broad critical acclaim. In his review of season two, Variety’s Daniel D’Addario wrote, “‘Queer Eye’ seems to have decided that facing challenges and adjusting expectations shouldn’t solely be the province of its experts. As a result, it’s as fascinating as it’s ever been, a document of gay men in 2018 — proud but uncertain about Pride, liberated but carrying wounds from an all-too-recent past — that feels unexpectedly vital.”
