This Video Of The ‘Queer Eye’ Casts On ‘Celebrity Family Feud’ Is So Fun

Two groups of absolute icons are about to star in an upcoming episode of Family Feud. The group of men who starred in Bravo’s Queer Eye for the Straight Guy 15 years ago and the Fab Five of Netflix’s revival of the show will battle it out to win a grand prize for charity. This video of the Queer Eye cast on Celebrity Family Feud will get you so pumped for the episode.

The match-up event, which was announced in early May, will pit the two casts against each other (all in good fun, of course). The Netflix show’s team is called "Queer Eye: The New Class" and includes Jonathan Van Ness, Antoni Porowski, Bobby Berk, Tan France, and Wesley Hamilton. (The fifth Fab Five member, Karamo Brown, was unable to join due to a scheduling conflict, so they brought Hamilton, one of their Season 4 "heroes" to take his place.)

The older show’s team is called "Queer Eye: OG" and includes all the original Queer Eye for the Straight Guy members: Carson Kressley, Ted Allen, Kyan Douglas, Thom Filicia, and Jai Rodriguez. In case anyone needs further clarification, in the video, Family Feud host Steve Harvey asks, "So you all are considered the OGs?"

"Yes, the old gays," Kressley cheekily responds.

The sneak peek shows both Queer Eye casts having a blast — laughing alongside host Harvey and celebrating as they answer questions correctly. At one point, France even puts his head down on the table in front of him, giggling because Harvey is giving him a hard time about being a fashion expert. All in all, it’s pretty clear the episode is going to be a blast to watch.

The event also serves a greater purpose. "I’m glad they had nine of us … out queer men, showcasing different kinds of families," Rodriguez says in the video. "Growing up, I would have loved to have seen this kind of family represented."

The "OG" team will play to benefit The Trevor Project, a nonprofit to help and serve LGBTQ youth. The "New Class" guys will play to benefit GLSEN, a nonprofit geared toward creating a better world for LGBTQ students.

Check out the full clip below to get a sneak peek at what’s in store for viewers of the episode:

The Queer Eye episode of Celebrity Family Feud episode airs May 31 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.

‘Space Force’ Review: Steve Carell’s Netflix Comedy Is Glitzy, Frivolous Fun

For the second time in as many weeks, this TV review ought to be framed around what our chosen series isn’t rather than what it actually is: i.e., “Space Force” is not “The Office.” Despite sharing a creator (Greg Daniels), star (Steve Carell), and loose genre affiliation (a workplace comedy), the new Netflix series isn’t shot in a mockumentary format, nor is Carell playing an infuriating buffoon. More to the point of what made NBC’s sitcom such a massive, re-watchable hit, “Space Force” doesn’t find humor in painfully awkward yet universally relatable office drudgery, so much as silly scenarios set against a grand backdrop.

It’s a farce and, at most, a light satire when it comes to politics. Despite sharing a name with the American military’s newest and most widely ridiculed branch, Carell and Daniels only take mild pokes at their characters’ odd patriotic obligation — and the President who felt it necessary to make space our next “war-fighting domain” in the first place. For instance, General Mark R. Naird’s (Carell) billion-dollar mission is based on a tweet from POTUS that tells him to put “boobs” on the moon by 2024, which they’re “pretty sure” is a typo. The joke stems from the Commander-in-Chief’s idiocy, sure, but it’s also broad comedy. Combine that with the choice to never mention Trump’s name and you should have an idea of the wide demographic targeted by this very expensive comedy.

“Space Force” follows General Naird, a successful lifelong veteran who thinks he’s taking over the Air Force when he’s given a promotion. Not quite. Instead, Naird is tasked with starting up the U.S. Space Force and putting boots on the moon’s surface by 2024. To do this, he and his family move to Colorado where American tax dollars build a secret, expansive base of operations populated with scientists, officers, and astronauts-in-training. Political pressure to turn a quick profit pushes launch dates forward, despite cries for patience from Naird’s chief scientist and de facto No. 2, Dr. Adrian Mallory (a pitch-perfect John Malkovich).

Popular on IndieWire

The pilot shows Naird trying to balance practical requests with impractical demands: Key politicos want him to launch the first military satellite while they’re in town to watch, while his team of scientists beg to delay a few days for better weather. Similar conflicts follow, be it between Naird’s military-bred stubbornness and his more forward-thinking media chief Tony Scarapiducci (Ben Schwartz, dialing Jean Ralphio down to a six), or Naird’s obligation to country above all else vs. his familial responsibilities to his daughter Erin (Diana Silvers), wife Maggie (Lisa Kudrow), or even himself.

At times, “Space Force” can go way off course, as it does in Episode 2 when Naird tries to train a (CGI) monkey to fix a broken satellite — these kind of inane ideas steer Carell into Michael Scott territory, but the talented actor keeps his disconnected sitcom leaders from bleeding into each other. With a clenched jaw, gray hair, and raspy growl, Carell feels like he’s bringing Brad Pitt’s “War Machine” caricature down to Earth; he walks a fine line between cartoonish indifference and wearied heroics, and Carell usually hits the right mark for each moment. When he has to reach for the laugh, he tends to get it.

Still, “Space Force” might fall apart without Malkovich. As the well-spoken, well-reasoned foil to Naird’s blunt-talking, “when in doubt, drop a bomb” general, everything from Malkovich’s carefully paced elocution to his subtle reactions work in brilliant comedic contrast to his regular scene partner. Together, Carell and Malkovich forge a charismatic pair that could carry even more episodes than they already do, while Malkovich’s Dr. Mallory could certainly stand for more development on his own. After seeing the Illinois State alumnus find delectable humor in his eccentric “New Pope” earlier this year, it’s great to see him sink his teeth into a full-time comedic turn.

Also helping to elevate the serviceable comedy is the gleaming production itself. Mallory and Naird’s hijinks are captured with the big, beautiful gravitas more reminiscent of “The Right Stuff” or “Apollo 13” than “The Office.” Rather than cutting to a tiny kitchen to hear from various talking heads, shots are framed to capture enormous sets, lots of moving pieces, and the kind of shock-and-awe VFX reserved for big-ticket dramas. While styling the series as though Space Force is struggling to pay the rent may have opened more avenues for “Office”-esque humor (high-tech paintball fights and endless rooms of supercomputers aren’t exactly as familiar to everyday office workers as outdated machinery and Dunderball), Daniels, Carell, and pilot director Paul King built their series with a lot of jokes based on how much money is wasted on costly screw-ups. So, “Space Force” has to look impressive — and with directors like Oscar nominee Dee Rees stepping in for the sixth episode, yeah, it looks really, really good.

With all that in mind, “Space Force” is a diversionary delight at best. Missed opportunities abound (whether it’s under-developed characters or first-draft jokes), and anyone expecting a “Veep”-level satire or “Office”-like innovation may be disappointed. Season 2, which seems inevitable given the talent involved, could easily go haywire or refine itself into something better. As it stands, “Space Force” is clearly made with joy. Maybe it won’t fill the “Office”-sized hole in Netflix subscribers’ hearts when the series leaves the service later this year, and perhaps it could serve a greater purpose than silly fun. But I certainly prefer this version over one that only aims to recreate the past.

Grade: B

“Space Force” premieres Friday, May 29 on Netflix.

This Montage of David and Patrick's Cutest Schitt's Creek Moments Requires Some Tissues

David Rose and Patrick Brewer from Schitt’s Creek are relationship goals, to be sure, but how did their love story begin? I’ve watched the show at least five times through (although I’m waiting until the Netflix drop for season six) but I still have trouble recalling their exact meeting — or some of their cutest moments along the way.

Although the ever-iconic “Simply the Best” dance will be forever in my heart, I’m grateful Netflix compiled a refresher of their full love story so I can appreciate every stand-out moment: from their first conversation to their wedding day. Watch the full video above to take a walk down memory lane with one of TV’s greatest couples, played by Dan Levy and Noah Reid. A word of advice: make sure you have some tissues nearby. These sweet scenes are also major tearjerkers.

Sweet Magnolias Was Shot in the Same Town as The Vampire Diaries (Serenity = Mystic Falls)

Joanna Garcia Swisher stars in the new Netflix series Sweet Magnolias as Maddie Townsend, a Southern single mom of three who opens up a spa with her two best friends. Their spa is in a gorgeous house in Serenity, SC, a small town they call home. Though Serenity is a fictional town and not a real filming location, production did still take place in the south.

Though the series, based on the book of the same name, is set in idyllic Serenity, it’s filmed in Georgia. Covington, GA, to be exact, according to Marie Claire. The town sits just outside Atlanta and has hosted other filming of a huge variety of other shows and movies, including The Vampire Diaries. The historic town dates back to the 1800s and even hosts tours of Mystic Falls so you can see filming locations from the popular vampire show.

Called The Hollywood of the South because of its picturesque scenery used in filming, Covington has plenty to do and see if you make the trip down South. It has cute bed and breakfasts that look just like Maddie’s spa in Sweet Magnolias, even if that spa isn’t quite real. The exteriors of the spa were shot at a real-life law office in Covington, but the interior shots were in a studio. The town offers other tours besides the Vampire Diaries one, as well, including a ghost tour and a tour of other filming spots.

If you make the trip to Covington, one spot you have to check out is Mystic Grill. Not only might it be familiar from The Vampire Diaries, but it’s also featured in Sweet Magnolias. The restaurant in the Netflix show goes by the name Sullivan’s, and it’s Dana Sue’s (Brooke Elliott) own place. She owns and runs the restaurant, which is one of the most frequented spots in the show. Everyone can be found there at some point or another, including Noreen (Jamie Lynn Spears), the woman Maddie’s husband Bill (Chris Klein) got pregnant and left her for. Sound like a messy story? It is!

The show also filmed in other locations nearby, including in and around Atlanta. However, if you want to make a trip to the most Serenity-like location you can find, you have to head to Covington. You’ll feel like you’ve stepped right inside Sweet Magnolias and will be joining Maddie and her friends for their next margarita night.

Netflix June 2020: New Anime, TV Shows, Movies, And Originals To Stream

Summertime is right around the corner, but because with many of us still stuck at home, there’s a lot more TV watching happening. In June, Netflix will deliver loads of new original content, including two shows which will have their final seasons. Here’s what we know is coming to Netflix next month.

June marks the end of the Fuller House revival. The second, and final, half of Season 5 of Fuller House arrives on June 2. That means it will be the last time you can watch Stephanie, DJ, Kimmy, and the rest of the gang get in wacky situations and get out of them with hugs and understanding. How rude?

Also coming to an end is the hit series 13 Reasons Why. Originally, the show followed a teenager who came across audio recordings of a classmate who had committed suicide. From there, the series went a bunch of different directions, and on June 5, the series will come to an end with Season 4.

Spike Lee is bringing his talents to Netflix this month, with Da 5 Bloods arriving on June 5. The upcoming movie follows Vietnam vets decades after the war, as they head back to the country to honor someone who fought alongside them. Also, they buried some gold during the war, and they want to retrieve it. Check out the first trailer for the movie here.

Below, you’ll find everything announced that’s coming to Netflix in June. Keep checking back as Netflix releases its full list in the upcoming days.

And if you’re looking for something new to watch, consider listening to GameSpot’s weekly TV series and movies-focused podcast, You Should Be Watching.

Netflix announces season 2 of The Politician will drop next month – sending fans wild

NETFLIX has announced season two of The Politician will drop next month – sending fans wild.

The first series premiered last year and followed high schooler Payton Hobart as he ran for student body president.

  • The 20 best series on Netflix
  • The 25 best films on Netflix

Earlier today, actor Ben Platt – who plays Payton – took to Twitter to share the artwork for series two featuring the key characters, which was swiftly retweeted by Netflix's official account.

The poster also revealed season two will premiere on the streaming service on June 19, and fans were beyond excited by the news.

One wrote: "I AM SO READY" while another added: "Bring it on. Exciting!!!!!"

A third tweeted: "I can't wait! I LOVED this show!"

Season two sees Payton determined to unseat Senate Majority Leader Dede Standish, who is campaigning for a new term in the New York State Senate race.

Bette Midler plays Chief of Staff Hadassah Gold and while she is on team Dede, as Payton starts to figure out what kind of politician he wants to be, he has the potential to expose plenty secrets and lies.

However his dreams could be upstaged by his mother Georgina (Gwyneth Paltrow) as she makes a huge decision of her own.

The second season features seven episodes – one less than the first season – which were completed before the coronavirus pandemic.

Ryan Murphy, who created the series alongside Gwyneth's husband Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan, recently revealed he had considered delaying the third season for some time to pick it up later in Payton's career.

He explained to Collider: "I think where season 2 ends, what I would love to do is take a couple of years off and have Ben Platt get a little bit older for his final race.

"That would obviously be a presidential race, right? That’s always what we had designed, and I think that’s what our plan is."

“I’m going to wait. Ben is young, so I want to wait a couple of years to figure out how we age him up a little bit. But that’s always been my plan.”

The Politician season two returns to Netflix on Friday, June 19.
