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.
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

Such boring people on this one. I liked the one with Santino Rice. Very Comical. The Clothing designs were great . I'm ordering season 5 soon.
If you only buy 1 copy of project runway - MAKE IT THIS SEASON!!!
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.
The show is always adhesively held together thru the charm and wit of Heidi Klum and the show could not exist without the heart and guidance of Tim Gunn. And judges Nina Garcia and Michael Kors always have honest, valuable opinions as each projects designs are shown on the runway. The unique thing about PROJECT RUNWAY is that all the contestants are people seriously pursuing a career in fashion with intense drive and the judges are all experts in the field as is Tim Gunn. The drama that unfolds on the show is not manuipulated but merely due to the fact that while having these contestants do challenge after challenge and get eliminated one by one they form relationships and we get to care about these people. Watching it unedited with no commercials I found this season to make me root for people I didn't particularly care for when I previously watched this season.
This show truly gets under your skin and is very addictive. There is talent here and just by being what it is the show provides huge entertainment. I can watch each season over and over even though I know the outcome. There is a class and sincerity that rises this show above other reality shows out there. And to watch contestants wear their hearts on their sleeve as they pursue their dreams to be big fashion designers is a gift. I can't say enough about this show and this season in particular. This season on dvd was short on extras. There is a short profile on the winner after the season ended but I am fine with the lack of extras. I would have loved blooper reels and even more of a history on each contestant but all of this really is a part of the show anyways. So I give this dvd a A++++++ but do say realize you aren't getting any extras. If you are ok with that you will be in PROJECT RUNWAY heaven.
