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 !!!

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.

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 first, the best!
Verified purchase
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!

Project Runway at it's best!
Verified purchase
This is where it all began. It's so much fun to go back and watch the first season of Project Runway. Even if you feel the show has become disappointing, you can see how great it was when it started. The contestants are memorable. There's Daniel (who we got to see again in Season 2), Austin Scarlett, who not only made some amazing designs, but also modeled at one point when one of the runway models failed to show up, Kara Saun, Wendy, and Jay. This show is great because it's a reality show, but the contestants really have a lot of talent. The best parts are when you get to see their ideas come to fruition in the workroom. Tim Gunn is excellent as a mentor and guide. The extras are also very good. If you love Project Runway but haven't seen the first season, this is a must. If you saw it years ago, you should watch it again. It's excellent!

I watched PR starting from season 3 and recently I read the newest book by Tim Gunn so I decided to get the first Season on DVD. Pulled an all-nighter and had a blast watching how it all began and comparing it to how it works now (Heidi doesn;t do as much personal greeting, Tim is smoother but still right on the mark, the basement where it all began looks so pedestrian!)The whole Wendy drama was a bit much & at the end-- SPOILER ALERT-- I really thought Kara should have been disqualified or penalized more heavily for the way she cheated with the shoes. It's tough to make Wendy look sympathetic but Kara did that with the way she handled the shoe issue. Wendy called her out and she was spot on. I don;t think Kara would have been allowed to get away with this on later shows. But I guess since Jay won it was a mute point. Tim did his best to level the playing field--and the show must go on. If you want to see its "rough" beginnings, this Season is a hoot and well worth the money.

Project Runway--You're In : )
Verified purchase
What's interesting is that I first checked out this show because of a poll I did. I typically do watch lots of Bravo's shows but hadn't checked this one out yet, so when I did a survey which addressed Project Runway in detail, it made me really want to watch it then. And it's been one of my favorite TV programs ever since. You don't have to be a fashionista to be interested in a design competition. Whether official or not, we're all movie critics & food critics etc because we know what WE like. I was surprised a certain someone made it to the finale, even though I liked the final collection, & disappointed when a specific someone didn't. As far as the DVD goes, the background music plays too often & too loud in comparison to the talking taking place, which is a bit frustrating. And it'd be nice if the Wear Are They Now special feature was more current to this release than just shortly following the season's end.
