The drama this season is a bit over the top and makes it a little stressful to watch. I like watching the creative process more than the diva-antics, which I wish they'd tone down.

Better than last Season by far! Thank you for doing away with the weekly team challenge concept. However, the drama this year was overboard in my opinion... just not something I'm into. I guess that is par for the course for reality TV, but I'm more interested in the creativity and the heart of who someone is as a designer. There were two individuals in particular - really pushing the boundaries. Were they truly that way or was this the 'magic' of produced reality TV? Either way, not a fan of that. And is the talent pool getting shallow? There seemed to be many designers who lacked essential sewing skills and knowledge. Anyway, 4 star because I'm happy they went back to the old formula. Kudos for trying something different, but I feel individual challenges give a better idea of a designer's aesthetic (or lack thereof). Heidi is still my favorite all time host and love the dynamics of the judges - even when I don't agree with their choices.

This season seems to have taken the project out of project runway and replaced it with all manner of consumer product placement instead. Drama between designers has taken over the drama of the challenges, and the resultant clothing is often predictable and problematic on many levels. Critiques from Mr. Gunn are sadly lacking as is much discussion of the "meat" of the challenges. The venerable PR may have indeed have been slowly jumping the shark for several seasons, but this season has it landing flat with little hope of revival. Seems grim, but after 11 seasons of going from absolutely loving, to feeling "meh" about PR, I'm more than sad to see it lose its way...

I love the changes that have been implemented this season. The show was due for a bit of a makeover. Only a few of the contestants this season have over-the-top, drama causing personalities. Timothy's absurd meltdowns were so funny to watch. I can't believe i'm saying this, but i miss seeing him on the show. I was dying of laughter when he was teaching his model how to stumble down the runway as if she was being pulled by an unseen force.

It's so refreshing to watch a reality show that requires its participants have brains and talent. The contestants are fashion designers vying to be one of three finalists who get to show a collection at New York Fashion Week. I am constantly amazed at what they can accomplish in the weekly design challenges. They have to whip up couture gowns or other clothing genre from materials found anywhere form a traditional fabric store (New York's Mood) to hardware stores, candy stores, or even a collection of auto parts. Most weeks they only have a day to complete their garments. It's fascinating to see what they can accomplish. Their mentor, Tim Gunn is extremely nurturing and always offers solid advice as their work progresses. The hostess Heidi Klum does a wonderful job and proves that she's much more than a pretty face. Judges are designer Zac Posen and Nina Garcia of Marie Clare magazine who are offer constructive criticism but are also quite supportive of the contestants. Each week there is a celebrity guest judge. They range from designers, like Roberto Cavelli to celebrities like Sarah Jessica Parker, January Jones, or Susan Sarandon. A designer is eliminated each week unti they're down to three. The three finalists are then given money and a few months to design their collections. Each season ends with the Fashion Week runway show and the selection of a winner. It's really fun to see so much talent at work. There's a little bit of the reality show "drama" between contestants but that seems to be downplayed and doesn't get much attention at all. That's one of the many reasons i enjoy this show.

We own all of the Project Runway dvds. Once they switched to instant video we lost out since we're rural-fringe and have *very* limited internet access. Provide dvds-on-demand (like season 1) and we'll watch it. Until then we're locked out.

There is an additional episode titled "Episode 0" that is a one-hour show about the selection of the contestants. Viewers who purchased the show through iTunes received access, but not Amazon subscribers......Would have enjoyed seeing it.

Last year was rough on Project Runway fans and contestants, as it seems the writers/producers/decision makers thought to increase the drama by capitalizing on the most hated aspect of Project Runway Challenges: Teams. The designers were miserable, and our winner was so emotionally beaten down she almost left. There is enough drama in this high pressure situation cramming a bunch of creative personalities in one competitive space, that there is no need to artificially heighten it.

This year, they went the other way, and I think so far it's been a rousing success, my favorite season ever!
-There is first the anonymity aspect: The judging panel does not know who the designer is of the fashions walking down the runway in advance (unless of course there is a designer who is a one-trick pony, which always happens). But this eliminates bias.
-There is also the Tim Gunn addition: Tim Gunn gets to sit on the judging panel, and though not judge, add in comments about how he advised the designers or how they struggled that the judges may not have known, which can certainly be relevant. In addition, Tim gets one "Tim Gunn Save", where he can essentially veto the judge's elimination of one designer if he believes that person is actually very talented, and maybe just had a bad challenge.
-There are instances where they let the designers relax a little, to allow them time to re-center and re-focus rather than just caroming blindly from challenge to challenge trying to just figure out how to please the judges as they lose their own identities.
-And though of course there are always patently gay designers on the show, this year they have a few that are just so heartwarming and adorable and completely vindicate the gay rights movement of marriage equality by representing how loving and supportive and family-oriented a gay partnership can be.

Love it, keep it up!
