Product Description

The hip series Project Runway is a pop culture sensation. International supermodel Heidi Klum returns as host, heading a glamorous panel of celebrities and fashion icons in search of the next star fashion designer.

Amazon.com

The fourth season of Project Runway returns with another group of telegenic contestants intent on winning the $100,000 cash prize and the chance to jumpstart their careers as fashion designers. The 15 competitors include sensitive Ricky Lizdale, earth mama Kathleen Vaughn, and impishly adorable Christian Siriano. Thanks to his quirky looks, hip designs, and popular catchphrases ("fierce," "ferosh," "hot tranny mess"), Siriano became such a pop culture sensation that he was parodied by Amy Poehler on Saturday Night Live. Though it is full of drama and its share of cat fighting, Project Runway has always been a step above your run-of-the-mill reality series. Whereas The Hills relies on a coterie of frenemies to ramp up its ratings, Project Runway actually seems interested in the contestants and how they will succeed in life beyond the series. Hosted by supermodel Heidi Klum, who exhibits a wry sense of humor while keeping the show moving at a brisk pace, the series is smartly entertaining. Fan favorite Tim Gunn returns, as does judge Nina Garcia. This season's guest stars include fashionista Sarah Jessica Parker, who helps critique the contestants' creations for her affordable Bitten line. But former football pro Tiki Barber is a scene stealer, appearing in an episode where the competitors have to design an outfit for him to wear on television. (Some of the pieces that the cast comes up with challenge the notion that Barber looks good in anything.) All 13 episodes from the Bravo series are included in this four-disc set. By the time Klum says auf wiedersehen to the runner up, most viewers will agree that the right contestant won. --Jae-Ha Kim

I just started watching this season on DVD and was looking at the back of the DVD case. One of the included extra features names the winner in its title. Be careful about reading the back of the DVD if you don't want to be spoiled.

This is my favorite season of Project Runway ever. The level of talent is unparalleled. Any of the final three designers could arguably have won and most likely would have won any of the prior seasons. Some of the challenges are silly (making costumes for wrestling divas comes to mind) but they add a bit of comic relief. The guest stars are appropriate and interesting. Sarah Jessica Parker's episode is a particular favorite because not only are the designers awe-struck, but they also have to wow her with a design for her "Bitten" line using only $15 of materials. Tiki Barber's challenge is also particularly interesting because it once again showcases the differences between designing for women and men.

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.

Season Four of "Project Runway" starts out slow, but it builds up steam and draws you in... the show is still a high-class production and leaves other "reality" shows in the dust.

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)

I don't sew, but I adore this show!

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!

I had to have Fourth Season Project Runway precisely because I HAD viewed the season and knew the winner. I wanted to be able to revisit the many entertaining moments of this season time and again. For me, Season Four is one of the show's very best. Even knowing the outcome of the challenges does not spoil its value for repeat viewings. Mentor Tim Gunn is still the same very lovable, mega-talented and highly revered mentor we met in Season One. One of the things so endearing about him is the fact that his face still seems etched in surprise at his popularity. Heidi and the judges have settled in comfortably to the success of the show and everything we have loved about them from the beginning "carries on". Not to "spoil" the conclusion for those who buy this for first time viewing, the winner was not a slam dunk. I find myself still cheering at the announcement of "Who will be America's Next Big Fashion Designer"?. If you love all things Project Runway, especially what made it popular in the beginning, Season Four is a classic and must to own.
