Defective disks, twice in a row. Unplayable.
Verified purchase
The first copy i got from Amazon, disc 2 was unplayable. The discs are a weird purple color and look like they were made on someone's home computer. Disc 2 had a large purple chunk of plastic embedded in the outer edge. So I returned the set, and waited for the replacement to come in the mail. So imagine how angry I was when the new discs, the replacement set, ALSO was defective, and disc two was unplayable. I am super angry.
****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.

~* I hope Project Runway "Carries On" for many seasons to come ~*
Verified purchase
What sets "Project Runway" apart are innovative contests - the first project (called "Innovation") sets the tone, as it actually involves the designers going to a grocery store with $50 and being required to build an outfit out of things they find at the store. The challenges during the series are just that - challenges; they don't take it easy on the contestants and require definite skill to succeed. The results of the tasks are definitely interesting to see, as there are some that are remarkably creative, and others that just don't work.

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.

Extra Features

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 !!!

A delightful PR season!
Verified purchase
The first season of PR was such a delight: the designers had no idea what to expect and every episode was a fresh surprise. Heidi plays hostess in showing the designers the workroom and the runway area, and the overall pace is more relaxed than in recent years. The models play a huge part of the initial seasons and enhance the mix of personalities and drama in and out of Parsons. The designers are allowed to drink and go out dancing and generally bring much humor to the challenges. Do yourself a favor and watch the first 3 seasons to see why people fell in love with this program!

The first, the best!

I am a huge Project Runway fan and have loved every season in its own right. But season 1 keeps pulling me back in. It's not like other shows where I get bored when I already know the outcome - the contestants themselves make such great TV that it doesn't even have to be about the fashion. Who can resist such deliciously sarcastic Jay commentary? Austin is a marvel every time he appears on screen, more fabulous each time. And Wendy... what can one say about Wendy Pepper? I can only sit back and marvel at the sheer magnitude of her ambition. She's easy to hate, but as a mom, I related to her in parts at the end of the show, leaving me in an uncomfortably ambiguous state of mind about Wendy.
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!

FINALLY! Creativity on Reality TV!
Verified purchase
I was immediately hooked when I caught some re-runs of this show on Bravo, and decided to buy the DVDs...ALL OF THEM! As an artist and photographer, I was immediately captured by the premise of the creative challenges presented to the budding designers each week. Heidi Klum is the attractive hostess of the show, ably supported by Tim Gunn, the Director of the renowned Parsons New School of Design. 12 hopeful designers start off the competition, and are eliminated one at a time each week after they are evaluated by judges (including designer Michael Kors & Nina Garcia from Elle Magazine) on the runway for their fashion creations. Some of the creative challenges include using things purchased at a grocery store to create a dress, re-designing the uniform of a postal worker (after spending a day in the field wearing the uniform), and working with the models (who also get eliminated one at a time each week) to create the model's ideal wedding gown. Reality TV is usually about the drama and contrived situations; do they exist here? Sure, however, it is refreshing to see that the majority of the show is about design and critiquing the unique creations that the designers whip up...and I do mean whip, as each challenge is done with very little lead time. The last 3 "survivors" get to exhibit an entire line at New York's Fashion week (actress Parker Posey sits in as one of the judges), with the grand prize including a photo spread in Elle Magazine and $100k in funding to create their own design line of clothes.

Extras on the DVD include "Wear Are They Now" featurettes for the final 5 designers; deleted scenes (which are best watching AFTER you watch the episodes, as they show further behind-the-scenes antics of the 12 contestants); a design photo gallery for all 12 designers.

An excellent set for up-and-coming designers as well as models. This show is a class act that rarely gets bogged down in the emotional drama (although there are a few choice scenes!).

"the Prada of reality shows"
Verified purchase
I am a Project Runway addict so I ended up buying the DVD set. I do wish there were more bonus tracks on the DVD but I am happy to have all the episodes.

If you have never watched Project Runway and are at all interested in the creative process or what it takes to be a designer, this is a show for you. I was once an art school major and it totally reminds me of when I had to scramble together a design project along with my other classmates (there was definitely the pull and balance of competition vs. helping each other out, racing against the clock and trying to create something which met the criteria for each design challenge but still was true to your own creative concepts). The criticism of the show which is totally valid is that the Producers had the final say who would and wouldn't get eliminated - so really the best designers don't end up in the final 3. The Producers are more worried about making the show more "interesting" by keeping enough tension and drama in the show. I think they would have been better off just letting things happen without their interference - I really wanted to see the 3 best designer's collections at the end so that was a major disappointment - DON'T READ ANY FURTHER IF YOU NEVER SAW THE SHOW, it will ruin the ending for you...

On the DVD, I wish they had included the fourth runner-up's collection who apparently agreed to put together a collection using his own money because the final competition in real time preceded the airing of the final competition. In my opinion and in many other viewers' opinions, the fourth runner-up should have made it to the final three instead of Wendy - it was so obvious that the Producers forced the judges to keep her in because she created so much tension in the show.

Project Runway is my favorite "reality" competition show on televison. As a custom clothing maker, Project Runway re-ignites my desire to create and I enjoy watching other creative people work through their unique challenges. The extended, behind the scenes episodes flesh out the episodes from tv and give you more insight to the creative process. I think the following seasons are much better than the first season, of course they worked out the kinks and Heidi is much more comfortable in her role in the more recent seasons. All in all, it is enjoyable for any fan of the show. One warning tho, it does contain a little more language and a few obscene gestures than allowed on the commercial television episodes. Not enough to concern anyone, but just to let anyone with kids know, there are "PG" moments.

First Season: Don't buy, watch it free.
Verified purchase
Wendy ruined this first season for me. Austin brought it to two stars; he is such an entertaining personality. I am glad that I watched other seasons first because had I watched this season first, I would not have watched another season ever. Not worth the money. It is depressing and frustrating to watch "designers" be carried without merit.
