I was a late-comer to the Project Runway phenom, but I've made up for it by watching all the seasons on Lifetime or Netflix. I've even watched all the Project Runway All Stars seasons. I was so excited that Tim was going to continue with something similar! Well, I watch it faithfully, but I will say I am pretty much bored by it at this point.
The only thing remotely interesting to me is Tim himself.
The judges suck, the contestants are horribly uncreative and mundane,
the mentors are unlikeable and distant and the whole thing is just not
begging for another season, IMO. I mean, Shan won last night's challenge by making what I
would consider to be a pillow case dress with a long train . . . slapped
together in one hour and made of the most horrendous GIANT POLKA DOT fabric I've ever seen. Oscar doesn't win because his gorgeously crafted
piece (which was totally inspiring from the color to the draping) was
"too old." And Asha's dress looked like lettuce in bondage -- UGH.
They are all so awful, I don't care who wins. Oscar is the only one
with a personality; at least he is happy week after week and always has
an idea and always chooses the right fabric and makes beautiful things.
I don't dig the LA vibe, either. Maybe that's why the show isn't edgy enough for me. I like a little "Fierce"ness; I like the NY streetscapes. It's busy, it's business; LA is like . . . vacation.
So, whaddya think?
