Mean, Bloated and Boring
I can't watch it, and I love fashion shows. The judging is BRUTALLY mean and unsupportive. They don't tell the contestants who did well and who didn't, instead they sit down their star-studded judging panel in the workroom, pluck a few designers from the group and individually drag them, hard, in front of their colleagues. Once the designer has had a chance to "defend" their work then Heidi asks all of the judges, "have you changed your mind"? As if they're a group of high school mean girls deciding if someone can sit with them or not (spoiler alert: none of them have changed their mind). Even after they designer is eliminated, Heidi continues to dig in and tell them why they suck. It honestly gives me anxiety to watch these judges. They are MEAN to the designer's faces and it's awful.

Also, this might appeal to some folks, but the budget is clearly so obscenely huge to the point where it feels grossly indulgent. It just feels yucky to see all this wealth and opulence on display, especially during the time of a pandemic and global recession. A one million dollar prize! No fabric budgets! Taking the entire show to Paris for a few episodes! Wall-to-wall pop music that is expensive to license! An A-List panel of world-famous judges! Insanely fancy catwalk shows! Parisian models! Heidi dancing on the Moulin Rouge stage! While I love a good escape, I really don't want to be reminded of how Amazon has more money than god while people all over the world are losing their businesses and being plunged into debt.

Speaking of Amazon, the other big difference on this show is that the winning designs are being sold on Amazon. This means the best designs do not get rewarded, but the ones that are the easiest to mass produce. Project Runway was always my favorite because it was about creativity and the design process and seeing what inspiration could come out of time limit, budget, and immense pressure. I became less and less interested over the years as the show shifted to focus on the interpersonal drama, reward the most commercial designs, and give more screen time to Heidi/Tim. I like H/T, but they are not the reason I ever watched PR. I know some would consider this sacrilege but I actually prefer Sirano in Tim's place on PR because he gives helpful, actual technical advice, whereas Tim has just become a nice grandpa dispensing lukewarm advice and comments (and who has never actually sewn or designed anything) and says "I'm concerned". None of that has changed here and now the show has built in to the format a reason for rewarding the most commercial designs again and again.

The show basically feels like it's a meaner version of Project Runway that's trying to stand out by throwing as much money as possible at it. It feels cruel, overly indulgent and honestly just not that interesting.

disappointing
i have been so excited to watch this after being such a huge PR fan for many years. unfortunately, i am so put off with how rude the judging is, especially from Naomi Campbell. I trying to understand do they want designers or people who can sew. they say one thing and then criticize for the other. Idk. i think i will stick with Nina and the original Project Runway crew.

A more elegant Project Runway
First, I love Heidi and Time - love, love. Second, this show is a more mature and elegant Project Runway. The designs are elevated - I'm loving the different points of view. I like the judges more than I thought that I would - Naomi always brings the drama, but she keeps it real and has a good POV; Altuzura is a nice guy, perhaps a bit too nice. Nicole is a little soft spoken, but makes good points; Carine - well, I knew that she would definitely have a strong POV and I like hearing what she has too say. I just wish I could hear more of the judges deliberation - hearing their critiques helps me to understand what I see on the pages of the fashion magazines. Oh, and the date nights...uh no. Although I love Heidi and TIm, I could do w/o the forced/scripted dates! Just let them be themselves and it would be sooo much better.

Boring
Boring. No focus on the sewing. Over use of the word tech pack. They have a “designer” on the show why can’t sew.... Just vanity shots of Heidi Klum dancing at the Mulin Rouge. A disappointment.

finished, but with some loose threads
most of the background music vocals are annoying and grade a cheese 🤢, especially over the expressions of the designers over personal moments. i miss the deep in studio drama as they execute their pieces. not diggin the mystery seamstresses. Tim talks are too edited. and the judgment and elimination process lacks the tension of project runway's, miss the individual critiques. the heidi/tim clips are a bit or miss, but glad they're back. since it's the premier season, i'll reserve some judgement. hopefully each future episode will advance from the last.

Heidi Klum can be cruel
Heidi can be quite unfeeling to the contestants- a trait I noticed in Project Runway that seems to have only ramped up. Their tourist "romps" feel forced and pointless. I fast forward through them now.
Each episode the judges make the lowest ranked contestants beg for their spot on the show. Its embarrassing to think the producers think we want to watch that. People watch these shows to connect with the artists in their creative process. Look at all the Great British (insert blank) Shows. The contestants are treated with dignity and the shows are so popular they've migrated to American television. No small feat. I keep watching due to the contestants themselves. Generally courteous and professional designers- though there are varying and confusing degrees of skill and creativity. Some ultra creative and some producing the ho hum. Two stars as I keep watching it but it doesn't make me feel good.

Miss the sewing, but mostly miss the individual critiques.
As anyone who is an aspiring designer, it is good to hear feedback for everyone's work. What if you loved a dress but then never hear what the judges think? It's disappointing. I appreciate the emphasis on design, but I find it annoying to pull away from tailoring skills and then not fully embrace accessing the looks. Episodes are 40 ish minutes? They really need that extra 20 minutes to talk to everyone. Or better yet, cut out those little side scenes and just give us more meat from the episode. I WANT to hear more, not less. I feel this is another victim of the world's need to condense culture and I hate it. It's also obvious who is going to do well or bad because they show almost no one else the whole episode. All we see of the other competitors are their final designs, then usually, don't hear what the judges even think. SUPER disappointing. It's okay, I will watch it more but it can't ride on the fame of its hosts.

I like it! Give it a try if you like Project Runway
It’s just like Project Runway except the designers are more established in their careers and using this show to take it to the next level. Amazon really pumped a lot of money into this show to Help make it a good show. I like it so far! It very design focused and not very dramatic... why some people say it’s boring. But there’s enough fake drama to watch right now on TV, this is really to watch talent come to life. Give it a watch, there’s plenty of time on your hands to do so at this point of 2020.
