"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.

"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)

Just finished watching an episode per night of Season 8 and ultimately feel quite turned-off by the whole thing. The no-longer amusing bitchiness of Gretchen, Ivy, etc., the arrogance and superciliousness of Michael Kors and much of the manipulation and slickness of the production left us with a certain feeling of time badly spent and having been had. What was really offensive was the sadistic exploitation of poor Michael Costello and his meltdown when he lost - on and on mercilessly humiliating him and us. Ugh! Tim Gunn remains very special and endearing, but it's not enough. Sorry.

While visiting my daughter in New Jersey I came across Project Runway which I absolutely loved. I am from Canada and, I believe we don't have that particular show in our area. So, I ordered all eight seasons from Amazon.com As long as they keep producing the series, I will continue to order them. I love Tim and Heidi together and, I respect the decision the panel makes each week of the competition . I pick my favorite and, look forward to Fashion Week. What can I say, I am a loyal Canadian fan who loves, loves, this unique series. Looking forward to Season Nine.....

Last season you can buy (later ones are digital streaming only). This one has Gretchen Jones, the designer everyone seems to love to hate, but a favorite of mine. Plenty of other designers as well that went on to the series of "All Stars" shows, so I'd say one of the best seasons.

This is one of the best seasons. Many of the seasons lack a true story arc and memorable participants, but this one showcased not only talent but complicated individuals dealing with their goldfish bowl experience with varying degrees of grace and spirit. I won't interject a spoiler but will say that one episode, whether staged or cut for maximum impact, still achieved that impact and will stay with you. Perhaps the best of the PR seasons.

Season 8 was as much about bullying and instigating negatively on the job as it was about fashion. Gretchen decided that she thought very little of one of the designers work and all the other designers followed suit. They treated the persecuted designer poorly, not talking to him and telling the judges that he lacked in skills and should not be there (even though he continued to have winning designs that gave him immunity). I watched the entire series and loved ever minute of it. I plan to watch it again!
