All these years later, this season is still difficult to watch.
Verified purchase
The most unlikable people ever, on Project Runway, seem to be in this season. Ivy (the worst), Gretchen (also the worst) followed by Valerie and at certain points others chimed in. They bullied and insulted Michael C. through the entire season. It was disgusting. I love the fact that Michael C. is the most successful designer (along with Christian Seriano) to come out of PR. I'm sure 10 years later the real hateful ones are still struggling and they deserve it. Besides the fact that the best person did not win this season, most of the designs bored me to death especially the loudest mouth there, Ivy. I love Mondo and Michael C. The drama made it so hard to watch.

Not a Good Season
Verified purchase
I remember watching this on TV yup all of 10 years ago.
I was appalled at the bullying by a number of people led by Gretchen and all intent on sinking Michael who just kept on winning competitions while they tried to tear him down. However, that DID change as Gretchen's support system got eliminated.
What bothered me also about this season well Casanova being eliminated because Michael Kors thought he only designed for old women - UH that's a huge market Michael!! Boomers have cash and we like to spend it. Frankly after that comment and Casanova's elimination the fun of this series disappeared for me and I have not purchased ONE Michael Kors designed item since. My silent protest. Yes 10 years later I am older but sorry I don't wear clothing that you espouse OR make.
I found the designs in general in this Season to be bland, lackluster, no real wow factor except from Casanova and from Mondo. Gretchen's items were IMO terrible and just monochromatic. No fun, flair and just are you serious?? Her jewelry was terrific. The odd part of this is that Michael has become quite the designer and Mondo is successful also. However, be that as it may the bullying that took place and intimations of cheating against one person over and over was just nuts and there should have been a lot of meetings with these designers to knock it off. They were NOT that talented with the exception of 2 and Casanova. He brought light and joy and constantly got slammed by Kors for designing for old ladies which nearly caused him to leave. So no this is NOT my favorite season. I love Tim Gunn and Heidi Klum and admired her for her fight for the hopeful winner. She was quite forceful and frankly spot on. The series as a whole is good, watching budding designers is fun but Nina is dated and so is Kors. They don't understand that more then 20/30 year olds buy clothing.

"Project Runway" Season 8
-------------------------------------------
Note: mild spoilers below
-------------------------------------------

This season features one of the least talented - or least exciting - design pools to date, with really only one designer whose work was on a creative par with the best contestants of seasons past. And yet, even without much "wow factor," the show was entertaining and engaging to the very last minute - the formula still works. The final choice was a naked, shameful travesty -- we were screaming, throwing things at the TV, but comforting ourselves by muttering that the loser (who was robbed!) will make millions as a celebrity designer, without any doubt.

Some changes and trends this season: the three main judges (Klum, Kors and Garcia) were much, much cattier than in previous seasons (although Heidi softened up a bit by the end) and week after week Heidi appeared in some of the worst clothes she's been in to date. In the parlance of the show, her own personal "taste level" seems pretty suspect these days. A couple of the designer melodramas were quite striking, particularly the "reveal" on contestant Michael Costello, which was one of the most genuinely painful moments I've seen in reality TV. All in all, this was a good, entertaining season - we enjoyed it. (Joe Sixpack, Slipcue.com film reviews)

Good Show. Poor Discs.
Verified purchase
I am a PR fan and have all the seasons on DVD. This last season was good in challenges despite that Lifetime now owns the rights to put it on.
Lifetime have decided for money grabbing reasons to make the show less fashion, and more commercial. I fear they will within two seasons, lose many, if not most of their loyal fans. I do not need to have informercials within the show about the products they are using. It is cheap and tacky. ( Slutty slutty slutty! ) They are proud to say it is now 90 minutes per show and yet I doubt we actually get half that, and what we do is loaded with HP and other product pushing. There are more than enough commercial breaks - too many, in fact. We do not need more of them in the weekly challenge. They make staying with it a challenge itself.
And why is Lifetime spoiling it with a "on next weeks show .." for goodness sake, we are going to watch it, don't take away that last little guess. Next they will be announcing the winner and loser BEFORE the show starts.
They have taken one of the best basic ideas of a show and turned it cheap. I for one enjoyed getting to know the models as we did when Bravo had it. We even had the "Models of the Runway" and would see their selection. For me an average person, it was fascinating to see further and deeper into the fashion industry by getting to know these ladies who walk the walk but don't talk any talk - until we had PR! That voice has been silenced by Lifetime. Do they not see see how they are destroying such a great concept?
I suspect a 'holier-than-thou' mindset has taken hold as it is Lifetime. Sad.
On the discs? They were sold to me new. They were used. The box had been opened and the dics had fingerprints on them.
Love the show - but overall, low score.

One of the best seasons
Verified purchase
This is my favorite season of Project Runway. The cast of designers is diverse and full of character--including Casanova and his "Exactly" catchphrase. =P There's a lot of talent to match the character. However . . .

*SPOILER ALERT*

The treatment of Mondo in this series is "disappointing." He "wins" a challenge where it came down to public vote--yet is denied the win. He proved over and over he was innovative and cutting-edge and yet, they gave the win to the wrong person (in not only mine, but many people's opinion). Thankfully there was Project Runway All Stars to offer redemption--not for Mondo, but for Project Runway itself. =P

*End Spoiler*

My other favorite seasons include the first (what a way to kick off the franchise!), seventh, and ninth. My least favorite are when they tried moving the show to California. Thankfully they were wise enough to bring it back to NYC where it belongs.

More fashion; less workroom drama please. Intolerable once Casanova left.
Verified purchase
Between Gretchen & Ivy, I felt angry after most of the episodes because of the incessant bullying of Michael C (Casanova should be in every season!). Then when Casanova left, the show went from frustrating to intolerable. Don't the producers realize that the majority of their viewers are adults?
Let us watch the judge-designer discussions and the discussion amongst judges! That's why we all watch--critiques by fashion professionals are something we do not normally have access to and it's really fun to learn about color, print, proportion and silhouette. We can all get as much drama and negativity as we want--at our own workplaces!
Any parents out there planning to force their artistic kids to abandon their dreams should have to watch the end of Episode 14 Part 1 to see what that does to your children!
