Pop Style Opinionfest: Meet the Queens and Say Goodbye to the Dowager Countess

Posted on March 11, 2016



Kittens, we are all about the aristocracy this week. First, we spill gallons of tea all over the RuPaul’s Drag Race season 8 premiere. We’re going to be podcasting our way through the entire season, just as we did last season, so we had a lot to get off our chest when it came to first impressions. Find out our favorites, our predictions for the finalists, and who’ll be the biggest bitches and crybabies of the season. Also: our thoughts on why this may be our favorite cast in years. And of course, a total bitchtastic rundown on every picture from the photo challenge (see below) as well as every runway look.

And if that’s not enough queening around for you, we spend the second half of the podcast saying goodbye one final time to Downton Abbey.


First, by talking out the reasons why the show became as insanely popular as it did and noting where it went wrong and what its weaknesses were as a series. And then? We just do a whole lot of shipping and fanfiction by discussing where the franchise should go next. Show creator Julian Fellowes may have given everyone on the show a happy ending, but he dropped some tantalizing hints about what could happen to some of these characters – especially the Crawley grandchildren – down the line. There’s still a lot of story potential in the show once you free it up from having to be a showcase for Maggie Smith.



It’s all there, darlings, from fanboy squeeing to blogger bitchery.

Thank you all once again for all your support, and as per the uzh, you can download/subscribe to the podcast here.
