Netflix fans have been flocking to the streaming service’s YouTube page to watch the web series I Like to Watch, where drag superstars Trixie Mattel and Katya Zamolodchikova share their hilarious and sometimes irreverent views on all of Netflix’s hottest shows.

Throughout the web series’ run, there have been numerous viral moments, and one hilariously notorious instance that has been memed, GIF’d, put on T-shirts, and is now even a popular drag costume.

We’re big fans of the series, and so we wanted to publish a guide of sorts to help other fans find the best episodes of I Like to Watch. 

Below, we shared the five funniest episodes of I Like to Watch!

Funniest episodes of I Like to Watch

5. The Knight Before Christmas

Cheesy Christmas movies starring Vanessa Hudgens have become a perennial favorite, and fans of her popular The Princess Switch franchise can eagerly look forward to a third installment, which is currently in production.

In 2019’s The Knight Before Christmas, Hudgens meets a hunky time-traveling knight, and, in typical Christmas rom-com fashion, the two hit it off. Naturally, Trixie and Katya have a lot to say about the movie. It’s like sitting down with your best friends, laughing at (but secretly enjoying) the annual holiday rom-com.

4. Too Hot to Handle

In Too Hot to Handle, Netflix took a group of hot, shallow strangers, put them all in a tropical paradise together…and then informed them that the actual competition was that they’d all have to refrain from any kind of intimate contact for four weeks. If they did, they’d win $100,000.

Every single participant on the show is extremely unlikable. So, what could be better than watching Trixie and Katya skewer them all for 20 minutes straight? Easily the best moment is when contestant Francesca says, “I have 310,000 followers right now…” and Trixie responds with, “I have 2 million, so eat s***.”

3. The Great British Baking Show

Food competition series are extremely popular right now, and Netflix saw a great opportunity to join in on the action by acquiring the UK’s The Great British Baking Show. What’s even better is having Trixie and Katya’s commentary throughout. Like most viewers at home, they critique the food, gawk over the handsome contestants, and ultimately, realize they have no culinary skills whatsoever.

One aspect of the series that audiences have loved is its positive, friendly spirit…this also happens to be what Trixie and Katya hate most about the show. Brace yourself for a hilarious dose of cynicism, cattiness, and spite to be peppered on top of this wholesome favorite.

2.) The Haunting of Bly Manor

Netflix’s 2018 remake of The Haunting of Hill House was a smash hit and led the way to its spiritual sequel, The Haunting of Bly Manor. The series has been dubbed a slow-burn and is seen as being much more of a psychological thriller than a horror like the original show.

One of the more unsettling aspects of the series is how odd and creepy the children are. This only leads to intense (and hysterical) ridicule from Trixie and Katya, who don’t hold back just because they’re kids. But viewers will most likely be distracted by the absurd plastic witch fingers Katya wears throughout the episode.

1. Glow Up

As drag queens, Trixie and Katya are used to applying makeup on a whim. This means they have an arsenal of insults for the aspiring makeup artists on Netflix’s reality show, Glow Up. What made everything even funnier is that many of the contestants on season 1 simply weren’t that talented and consistently created awful, laughable looks.

Artist Cody Choi, who was one of the show’s models, even shot to internet fame after Trixie and Katya became obsessed with the stunning expression his makeup look gave him. Luckily, it’s all been in good fun and Trixie Mattel has even started following Choi on Twitter.
