Project Runway, S5 Finale Part I: Jerrel Wuz Robbed!

Well, here it is, people.  The end of the season.  If you tuned in last week you saw Jerrel get shit on by the judges after he won the challenge fair and square and then was told that he was going to have to RE-compete to show at Bryant Park.  Why?  Because despite her FUGTASTIC dress, and her BITCHTASTIC attitude, Kenley somehow managed to survive and didn’t get eliminated.  Oh, no.  All four of them went home to create collections and compete against each other  again. Heidi tells the designers…

Project Runway, S5 E9: Asstrology

This episode is chock full o’ things that I love:  fashion, astrology, and drama!  Oh, where to begin? How about a recap of last week?  Diane von Furstenburg is fabulous, Kenley whined and cried, Stella got Auf’d for refusing to listen to Tim Gunn (will they NEVER learn?!) and Leanne won again. (yay!) Terri begins this week by being an ass, foreshadowing many scenes to come.  She is dancing around singing “the witch is dead” because Stella is Auf’d.  Blayne and Suede are talking about some stupid dream Suede had. Kenley…

Project Runway, S5 E7: Keith’s (sa) Turn To Go!

First of all loyal readers, let me apologize for slacking off last week.  I won’t bore you with the details, but it was pretty much the week from hell with the only bright spot being the Drag Queen episode of Project Runway.  As much as I enjoyed watching it, however, I simply didn’t have time to blog about it; and before I knew it the week was over and I was too late. And so, I’ll just pick back up with Episode 7:  Keith’s (sa)Turn to Go Home Recap!  The drag…

Project Runway S5, E5: The Jungle Brooke

We are down to TWELVE designers and things are starting to get interesting.  More personality conflicts, more difficult challenges, more meltdowns! We begin with a review of last weeks’ successes, failures, and one-liners.  Korto won the Olympic challenge with her boring pantsuit.  Jennifer lost with her tea party outfit. Korto begins by reminding us she has immunity and says she can relax and leave the drama to everyone else.  (Oh, foolish Korto.)  Daniel and Keith are shown lifting weights because this is Bravo and there’s always a need for gratuitous shots…

PRS5, Episode 4: Gold Mental Winner

The ultimate reality show in the history of the world is The Olympics!  Who doesn’t love to watch the emotional successes, the crushing failures, and the sheer excellence of the competitors?  Which is why it makes perfect sense to use it as the basis for a Project Runway challenge.  Except for the very minor detail that Fashion Designers are almost diametrically opposed to athletes in their self-expression.  But whatever.  Let’s do this thing. We open with gratuitous shots of all the designers looking haggard in their apartments as they get…

PRS5, Episode 2: The Green Bile

Let me just begin by saying that I am completely confused by this episode of Project Runway. For the most part, even cheesy reality TV tends to have a logical (albeit obnoxious) sequence of events. We know what to expect, and that’s why we tune in. The sweet expectation of bullshit is exhilarating! I’m feeling so…cheated by this episode. In the very beginning, we get a blah-dee-blah-blah recap of the previous epi, and the real action starts when Heidi (looking really hot in her crown of milkmaid braids) takes her…

Project Runway Season 5 – Episode 1

I watched the premiere episode last night at 8:00 in a leisurely manner, and then re-watched at 10:00  so I could make notes for my review. It was an EXCELLENT first show of the season, with plenty of everything that keeps us coming back to PR. The contestants were still too many for us to get a whole lot of face-to-camera time in this epi, however there were a couple standouts: Blayne, a tanorexic, bleachy haired chap who claims to love “urban” style (which means he wears knit caps…
