I didn't see Boy Meets Boy cuz ain't got no cable.
I found most of the guys on PIS annoying, and the production itself was dead (about all they did was fight about who was gay and who wasn't). I did like the hot tub scene with whats-his-name in his underwear. The woman in PIS had all the charisma of a weed eater.
IMHO, I believe that Queer Eye perpetuates stereotypes, but not in a bad way. It shows the fun and acceptability of those stereotypes. It shows that those stereotypes are of value to society. In the past, being into interior design or hair stuff was a point of mockery; Queer Eye has turned those things into something to celebrate. Like in the late 1960s and early 1970s, it was taboo for African American men to tap dance; Gregory Hines managed to turn that stereotype into something worth celebrating. What Gregory Hines did for tap, I believe the guys of Queer Eye are doing for gay stereotypes.
I used to build miniature floats for pretend parades when I was a kid. In a town of 150, that's a bit odd. I also twirled baton in grade school (I became the class mascot--they were too young and too sheltered to be homophobic). I went through my time of horror that I did that, but now I celebrate it, thanks in part to Queer Eye.
Now I'll go PM you that I answered this.
