Product Description

Carson's Style (plus bonus DVD outtakes and Season 1 episodes), Kyan & Jai's Looking Good (plus bonus CD); Ted's Food & Wine (plus bonus CD) and Thom's Home (plus bonus DVD of Season 2 outtakes)

Amazon.com

Every member of Bravo's stylish quintet gets to shine in The Fab Five Collection. Fashion expert Carson Kressley ("Style"), interior designer Thom Filicia ("Home"), and kitchen connoisseur Ted Allen ("Food and Wine") all get their own double-disc sets, while grooming guru Kyan Douglas and culture maven Jai Rodriguez share one ("Looking Good"). Each features an hour of highlights (clips arranged by theme). In addition, Carson and Thom's sets include bonus outtake DVDs. The other bonus discs are hour-long CDs: the dance-oriented "Deep Collective" for Kyan and Jai and chilled-out "Lounge Essentials" for Ted, whose DVD also includes recipes.

The highlights are instructive and entertaining, but only two full-length episodes are included. Consequently, this collection is likely to be appreciated more by those already familiar with the Emmy Award-winning series since much of the context is gone, i.e. who the subjects are and why they agreed to appear on the program. The first episode, included with Carson’s Style, is "He's a Little Bit Country, She's a Little Bit Overwhelmed," in which the Five "make better" a New Jersey contractor who wants everything to be perfect when he proposes to his girlfriend. (It was actually the fourth episode.) The series debut, "Hair Today, Art Tomorrow: From Mess to Masterpiece," included with Thom's Home, focuses on a New York artist who wants to make a good impression at his first gallery opening. (In both cases, the two hours of material could have easily fit on one disc.)

Overall, The Fab Five Collection is an enjoyable look back at the first season of Queer Eye for the Straight Guy. Like the show, it’s packed with witty comments and useful tips. Now Bravo just needs to bring the entire series to disc--with commentary from every Fabulous member of the Five. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

This was a REAL disappointment. The initial Amazon review gave the impression that I was buying the show since I live overseas and only see recordings from time to time. I was looking forward to seeing all the shows back to back. These DVDs were clips and outtakes from the shows and if I had opened this before leaving the US I would have returned it. For me, it was a big waste of money and the producers of the show should know it. I'll avoid any offering that comes out in the future based on what they turned out this time.

As someone who has not seen many episodes of Queer Eye, I was a little disappointed. The 8 DVDs contain only 2 full episodes, and the rest is out-takes, snippets, and 2 music CDs. While it's always fun to watch the guys, when it was out of context of an entire show it wasn't as enjoyable for me. I like to know the back-story on the straight guy. Worth purchasing since there's nothing else out there right now, but it could be better.

This group of DVDs is mostly a collection of themed montages. A clip here, a bite there all around a single individual. You jump quickly from spot to spot. To me, it was like watching hours and hours of an introduction. That said, I live overseas and have limited access to American TV so it was better than nothing. Glad I borrowed it and didn't buy it.

I never saw Queer Eye for the Straight Guy during its initial run on television, and only in the last year or so did I finally get caught up with it via streaming services. Nevertheless I instantly fell in love with the Fab Five, and was dismayed to find that none of the seasons were ever released for purchase on DVD proper. I happened to come across this box set, which is basically a collection of hour-long clip shows and compilations of the guys' best, funniest, and most memorable moments, and it's not half bad, assuming you know what you're getting into ahead of time. Here's a rundown of what exactly is included here:

- "The Best of Carson's Style." Includes second disc of Carson-related outtakes (which in my opinion may be worth the price of this entire set alone, lol) and one full-length episode of Queer Eye as a bonus feature. It's the one titled, "He's a Little Bit Country, She's a Little bit Overwhelmed," with that really cute urban cowboy guy who's planning to propose to his girlfriend.

- "The Best of Thom's Home." Includes a second disc of Thom outtakes as well as the very first episode of Queer Eye ever aired as a bonus feature. Thom initially took a while to grow on me, but he can be pretty darn witty when he wants to.

- "The Best of Ted's Food and Wine." Includes a bonus audio CD of "Lounge Essentials" which contains an intriguing selection of breezy tracks with relaxing jazz and island elements. Cocktails, anyone?

- "The Best of Kyan and Jai's Looking Good." Includes another audio CD called "Deep Collective" which, even as someone who typically loves dance/club music, I found to be a bit uninspiring and probably best suited for background noise.

I have to say that this show is great. I actually never watched it when it was on television, but my wife was a fan. I purchased this as a gift for her. We watched them together. There are two episodes as other have stated. It is difficult to find one of the two on the menus.

The rest of the discs are either not DVDs or are just crazy cracked out clips that only a die hard fan could enjoy. I was constantly wondering what was the setup to the 10-20 second clip, or wishing to see more... just as it flipped to another one. It is actually very tiring to try and watch. Almost like Blair Witch meets Bravo. A decent show, but so shaken and tossed at you that it's hard to know where to look.

Like I said, a die hard fan will be "hey I remember that" over and over. Anyone else will be lost.

Now... it is not the shows fault. It is Bravo's. Bravo should really release these full seasons on DVD and they could finally make up for this mistake.

Yes, like other reviewers stated, season box sets of Queer Eye would have been great. However, if this is what we get, I'll take it. Thom's and Carson's dvd's were my favorites - not the least of which was because each contains a full episode. The two episodes they picked were great choices and the pieces of the other episodes sprinkled throughout appeared to be from mostly four other episodes so you still get a beginning to end experience by watching each designer's own dvd. I watched all of the dvd's and loved each one. I just might watch them again this weekend.

The collection contains all of the verve, style and 5 sets of discerning queer eyes. I watched this show religiously when it aired and recently found it back on Esquire channel - albeit at the crack of dawn. I'll take the Fab 5 with my morning coffee over the dreary news any day.

The rest of the 6 designer dvd's provide outtakes, loads of quips, lots of magic performed on needy straight guys as well as "quality time" with the 5 guys this straight woman would be happy to be stranded with on a desert island.

Had I bought this set assuming it was lots of complete episodes, like many of the reviewers, I would have been let down too. But, since I knew what I was getting, I LOVED this set. It is a great representation of the personalities, the talent, the style and the heart of the Fab 5!
