5.0 out of 5 stars Making it work July 23, 2011
Format:DVD
"Project Runway" is a perennial guilty pleasure. Cat fights among fashion designers, Tim Gunn's mentoring, Heidi Klum's Teutonic accent, there's fun for everyone. "Project Runway" is very much at home in New York City, especially when the three finalists show their lines at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week at Lincoln Center. The 8th season is a standout with its flamboyant characters. The drama at the Parsons School of Design is as much a highlight as the challenges&the looks.

The 8th season had fascinating challenges-using materials from a party goods store, a Marie Claire (1-year auto-renewal) challenge, using avant garde hats from Philip Treacy (who designed Princess Beatrice's hat for LIFE The Royal Wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton: Expanded, Commemorative Edition (Life (Life Books))), making a 6 piece collection, using First Lady Jackie Kennedy as inspiration, and L'Oreal make-up. During the 8th season, Alexander McQueen (Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty (Metropolitan Museum of Art)) killed himself, and Heidi Klum commemorates him.

The 8th season had its array of characters- from Carlos Casanova, the middle-aged designer Peach, the Laotian Andy South, the granola/hippie-ish Gretchen Jones from the Pacific Northwest, and the inimitable Mondo Guerra. Mondo Guerra was a standout with his designs;he even managed to make his HIV+ status into a clothing pattern. Heidi Klum wore one of his dresses to the premiere of Black Swan.

1.0 out of 5 stars Total Turn Off January 26, 2011
Format:DVD
I've been a great fan of Project Runway, seen every episode several times, bought every season on dvd & watched them several times. I've recomended the show to anyone who'd listen. There have been good & not so good seasons, good & not so good judging, but season eight was worse than the worst that preceeded it. The judging was totally inexplicable & inexcusable. People were kept on the show who never should have been on the show at all. The final winner was a jaw dropping shock, one of those "what were the thinking?" moments. I was so put off by season 8 that I have no intension of buying it on dvd. More, I was so disgusted I may never watch upcoming seasons. Tim Gunn was the only one to come off well & the only reason I may relent & watch future shows.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still entertaining March 30, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
"Project Runway" Season 8
-------------------------------------------
Note: mild spoilers below
-------------------------------------------

This season features one of the least talented - or least exciting - design pools to date, with really only one designer whose work was on a creative par with the best contestants of seasons past. And yet, even without much "wow factor," the show was entertaining and engaging to the very last minute - the formula still works. The final choice was a naked, shameful travesty -- we were screaming, throwing things at the TV, but comforting ourselves by muttering that the loser (who was robbed!) will make millions as a celebrity designer, without any doubt.

Some changes and trends this season: the three main judges (Klum, Kors and Garcia) were much, much cattier than in previous seasons (although Heidi softened up a bit by the end) and week after week Heidi appeared in some of the worst clothes she's been in to date. In the parlance of the show, her own personal "taste level" seems pretty suspect these days. A couple of the designer melodramas were quite striking, particularly the "reveal" on contestant Michael Costello, which was one of the most genuinely painful moments I've seen in reality TV. All in all, this was a good, entertaining season - we enjoyed it. (Joe Sixpack, Slipcue.com film reviews)

3.0 out of 5 stars 3.5 Season-Emotional Drama Over Fashion Design October 31, 2010
There is a formula to reality tv contests, which comes down to one likely to win the ratings race in television and thus bring in more money from advertisers. While ostensibly this reality show is a clothing competition, the real purpose of the show is NOT to find the next great great fashion designer but rather TO GET THE HIGHEST POSSIBLE RATINGS AS A TV SHOW. If you read the end credits carefully, you will even discover that the show reserves a great deal of power so that decisions are very much in the hands of those who create tv shows. The people you see onscreen by no means hold the power in the entire disqualifying process. Indeed, the most remarkable thing which happens this season is that there is a spinoff show which follows it which features two talented designers (who did not win) who were fabulous characters in their season of this show. The spinoff show was much better than this show this season because they are fabulous characters plus very daring designers. (Too daring for Kors and Garcia, as per usual.)

The above pathos wringing problem was never more evident that this season. Every drop of drama which could be wrung from these "characters" was done so. I could almost imagine the person behind the camera crying, "Cut! Let's try hitting that wall with a little more oomph, Michael, to show how really upset you are." Or "Hmmmm, let's bring back our most bitter and envious contestant as a "helper" and let her vent her spleen against one of the contestants still there." Ergo the "character" Ivy the minute she hits the sewing machine accusing a contestant still in the running of cheating.

Then there is the problem of judges who seem like they have been judging too long.
