****EDIT: I was able to buy a used, real copy of the show on Ebay. The discs are silver-colored and work perfectly. I ripped them to my computer so that I could watch the show on my laptop and I discovered what the problem is. Disk 2 of the original DVD set was stored in a strange way, where episode 9 wasn't included as it's own track. The person making these purple disks probably has software that can't fix the issue.
Another refreshing point about "Runway" is although there are definitely big personalities in the pool of contestants and the show does show some catfights and arguments, the series focuses more on the actual work that the contestants are trying to do. Additionally, some of the people are actually pleasant to one another, which is a real shocker for a reality series. Additionally, Heidi Klum actually makes a very good host, managing to not keep the focus on her in her scenes, and yet not be so subdued that she becomes a non-factor. It's a tough balance, but she achieves it quite well. The pacing and documentary-style cinematography are also faster and sharper than most similar shows on TV today.
The bonus features are fun, included is a series of rather interesting "WEAR Are They Now?" segments, as well as deleted "SEAMS" and a pictorial gallery of some of the designers work throughout the course of the show. The "WEAR" segment catches up with Jay, Kara Saun, Austin, Robert, and Wendy. Totaling 40 minutes in length (all combined) I found these to be fairly interesting, offering a rather extensive look into what the designers have been doing since the show's conclusion. The deleted scenes (with a total run time of 15 minutes) offer the typical helping of "the stuff we didn't show" scenes where the camera was too shaky for the footage to make the final cut. Lastly, the designer gallery is simply a slide show of the designers work including final products of clothing they made, as well as looks at sketches of ideas that they may have had during the creative design process. There are no audio commentaries on this disc set but hopefully there will be one in a future season release.
I really enjoy watching Runway, although I do not always agree with the voted off designer, it remains an edgy an innovative show. I think that just might be the charm of the show. We all have our personal favorites but you can never be sure who will win !! Each week when the current episode airs, I call my sister and we gossip through the entire show each trying to predict the winner and loser !!!
Let's not forget dear Kara Saun... daring yet sophisticated style, no shenanigans tolerated...and then SHOEGATE! Between her blowup with Wendy and the Shoegate saga, I could watch that last episode a hundred times.
Don't forget Robert, admirer of women...and their bodies. Poor Kevin, one of Wendy's "bus" victims... Vanessa "I CON'T SEW" - her performance at the reunion show is pretty memorable. Stand in awe as Austin himself does a turn on the runway, goggle at the terror that is Morganza, gasp in shock when Wendy is chosen for the final 3, sending Austin (fabulous Austin) home... clutching one of the most gorgeous dresses made that season, laugh helplessly at the sharp wit from Jay...
Come on, pop a drink and sit down with me. Just don't take my dye!
