There is little of the bickering among the contestants that has been so prominent in some seasons. And there is no clear villain among the cast. Didn't miss either one.
As for the "extra's": We do not have Bravo TV in our cable line up, so the shows are a first time view for me. I can not tell you how much extra footage there is per episode. The extra features included in the DVD are minimal to the point of ridiculous. A short "Wear is he now" on the winning designer and a series of brief and obvious make up instructions are pretty much it.
Early on, Tim Gunn pronounces this season's ensemble to be the most talented group they've had on yet... but it's a little hard to believe him since the cast lacks the dynamism and sharply defined personalities of earlier seasons. Nevertheless, a couple of designers quickly reveal themselves as unlikable or bizarre, and that always adds a little narrative spice. I would say that this season was largely packed with bland personalities, but once they drop out in the first half, the show gets more exciting, and when it becomes clear that one of the most irritating contestants has a pretty good shot at winning, the subsequent eliminations will get your adrenaline going.
This season was also marked by constant one-upping on the part of Heidi Klum and the producers -- almost every episode has a twist or a Big Secret. Sure, it's gimmicky... but so what? It's also fun! Perhaps the greatest thing this season is Heidi's new wardrobe -- after being pregnant and having her baby during previous seasons, she's now trimmed back down and is again able to wear whatever she wants. One of the great joys of this season is to watch the reactions of the contestants as Klum arrives on the runway in one eye-popping outfit after another.
Great show. Looking forward to Season Five! (Joe Sixpack, Slipcue film reviews)
Each season begins with approximately 12-16 up-and-coming fashion designers selected to compete for the opportunity to design a show for Fashion Week in Bryant Park of New York City. Each episode introduces a new challenge for the designers in which they have minimal time to sketch and purchase materials for the challenge, always accomplished under significant time restraints. The challenges themselves are often very interesting, such as the challenge to create clothing from non-traditional materials (e.g. items from a pet store, flowers, or items reconstructed from their own pajamas).
In addition to the challenges, the designers themselves bring a lot of color and character to the show. The mentor, Tim Gunn, is terrific at encouraging the designers to to do their best with his trademark "Make It Work, Designers!" And if that isn't enough, the judges (Michael Kors and Nina Garcia) offer thoughful critiques. And then there is the third judge and show host, Heidi Klum, who offers valuable input and something pretty to look at.
But at the core of it all is the fashion. It is really interesting to watch the clothes come to life in each challenge, culminating in a runway show.
If you like fashion, you'll love Project Runway!
