So, back in 2019 word got out that Netflix's reboot of Queer Eye was coming to my hometown, Austin, Texas. I've seen most of the original series from the early 00's and all of the reboot series. Given Austin's unique physical and political location, I thought - yeah, that'll work.
Austin sits on the edge of the Texas Hill Country, and while the eastern portion of town is mostly flat to rolling fields, the further west you head through town, the higher the hills. It's a mix of lovely green trees and white limestone, and in the more densely populated areas, people do try to make the most and beautify through art and color. Most of the new skyline defining architecture I find intensely boring, but there are a few stand-outs (the new Google building is amazing). All of which looks swell on camera.
