Still a high-quality show!

"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)"
Good Show, Bad Judges

"First of all I love this show, it is only "reality" show where I watch it every week, and not an episode here and there. That being said I hate how the judges play favorites, I know this is partly due to the producers decisions, but their favoritism is way over the top. For instance take the obnoxious Christian Siriano (no he is not sexy, he is disgusting) he pretty much produced the same outfit every week. It had to be black (with maybe some white, tan or brown if you were lucky) tight, with giant hats, and with either feathers or ruffles (or both). There was no thought of whether people could wear this stuff all he had to say was that it was "fierce" for the judges to go gaga over it. I ask you; if any other of the contestants had made his horrible prom dress wouldn't they have been kicked off? Other contestants make similar outfits and they are kicked off for not being "creative" enough. The same for having a signature "look" such as prints or draping, if they do it every week they are criticized, not Christian though. Christian makes the same outfit every week and he is hailed as a genius. And then on top of it he was a condescending, jerk who thought everyone was beneath him, and was constantly critical of everyone else. I don't know why people even liked this guy he was such a jerk. Oh and then for the final judging they Victoria Beckham as a judge! Like what does she know about fashion? I know she has been dubbed a "fashion icon", but for goodness sake she is a Spice Girl! They dressed like crazy prostitutes! Anyway I like the concept of the show I think the judging stinks, hence the three stars. Wouldn't it be nice if the people could judge? I know it won't happen, but it would be nice.
The best reality show

"I absolutely LOVE this show and have been watching it since it started. This lull of time that passed as the show established its new home on the Lifetime network put me thru major PROJECT RUNWAY withdrawal and so I purchased all 5 previous seasons on dvd. What a treat. Any show is more enjoyable on dvd without commercials and editing. To watch the show from the first episode till the last without any interruptions allowed me to gain even more from this season than before. I love all the seasons but found this one to be the best. I thought this was the season with the most talented fashion designers and the season leads to a final three all deserving to be showing their line at fashion week.
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."
