Better Than Last Year with a Couple Exceptions...
Verified purchase
Better than last Season by far! Thank you for doing away with the weekly team challenge concept. However, the drama this year was overboard in my opinion... just not something I'm into. I guess that is par for the course for reality TV, but I'm more interested in the creativity and the heart of who someone is as a designer. There were two individuals in particular - really pushing the boundaries. Were they truly that way or was this the 'magic' of produced reality TV? Either way, not a fan of that. And is the talent pool getting shallow? There seemed to be many designers who lacked essential sewing skills and knowledge. Anyway, 4 star because I'm happy they went back to the old formula. Kudos for trying something different, but I feel individual challenges give a better idea of a designer's aesthetic (or lack thereof). Heidi is still my favorite all time host and love the dynamics of the judges - even when I don't agree with their choices.

this is my favorite show
Verified purchase
hi. i am sure if you watch any tv shows on line, you are acquainted with the downside of internet television....that is, every show is not readily available to watch, so when you have nestled in to your favorite chair, don your comfy sweats that no one sees you in outside of the house, have plopped down with your kitty and a bowl of popcorn on your lap, push the button and then find that the episode you want to watch is not available for your view...what do you do? well, you don't call "ghostbusters"....(that's for sure)...you just click to your amazon.com video store and watch that episode for the $1.00-$2.00 fee they charge (i have always gotten mine for $1.00 as i am a prime member) and then you can continue on with your evening...it is that simple and has saved me many a time from blowing a gasket. in fact, i find that more often than not, i just go to amazon and pay that minimal fee because it is way way way more reliable and effortless than going through all the "hoopla" that you find yourself doing online. i find some of the sites (like lifetime) quite frustrating and not all that "user friendly". thanks amazon!

A Reality Show that Isn't Stupid
Verified purchase
It's so refreshing to watch a reality show that requires its participants have brains and talent. The contestants are fashion designers vying to be one of three finalists who get to show a collection at New York Fashion Week. I am constantly amazed at what they can accomplish in the weekly design challenges. They have to whip up couture gowns or other clothing genre from materials found anywhere form a traditional fabric store (New York's Mood) to hardware stores, candy stores, or even a collection of auto parts. Most weeks they only have a day to complete their garments. It's fascinating to see what they can accomplish. Their mentor, Tim Gunn is extremely nurturing and always offers solid advice as their work progresses. The hostess Heidi Klum does a wonderful job and proves that she's much more than a pretty face. Judges are designer Zac Posen and Nina Garcia of Marie Clare magazine who are offer constructive criticism but are also quite supportive of the contestants. Each week there is a celebrity guest judge. They range from designers, like Roberto Cavelli to celebrities like Sarah Jessica Parker, January Jones, or Susan Sarandon. A designer is eliminated each week unti they're down to three. The three finalists are then given money and a few months to design their collections. Each season ends with the Fashion Week runway show and the selection of a winner. It's really fun to see so much talent at work. There's a little bit of the reality show "drama" between contestants but that seems to be downplayed and doesn't get much attention at all. That's one of the many reasons i enjoy this show.

Irritated about paying for PR, but the quality is worth it!
Verified purchase
I missed the first few episodes of Season 12 and didn't realize that I'd have to pay for it until I was trying to view it on Lifetime.com. I was irritated that they're now charging for something that used to be free. It's only because I love PR so much that I reluctantly paid $1.99 per episode to catch up. I have to admit the quality of the streaming from Amazon.com blows Lifetime's streaming away! I could watch the episode full screen without any hiccups. I can't remember the last time I could do that on Lifetime. Thank you Amazon!

As for the episode, it was a great combination of design plus drama. I agreed with the judge's choice for the top 2 winning looks (but not the top 3) and, ultimately, the winner. I love Tim Gunn's expanded role on the runway and the spontaneous decision the judges made about how to handle an issue that I won't describe now because I don't want to spoil it for anyone who hasn't seen the episode yet. This issue has come up many times before and not been addressed adequately until now. Bravo, Project Runway!

Best of all seasons of PR
Verified purchase
Loved this season best among all of them---so much talent in one place!! Loved some of the background stories and was blown away by Justin. Dom's final Retro collection was remarkable and rather reminded me of stained glass windows. Am hoping something in that line will make area stores where I purchase. Loved the save by Tim G and thought that was unique. It is so much fun to watch the manufacturing process and then make my own decision on who I would choose to win each week. Really like that you took the team away from their normal atmosphere for field trips. Nature does provide a great deal of insight to our lives so hope you continue in that area. Thanks to all at PR and to Amazon for having this available.

Can't wait for next season!
Verified purchase
I still really love this show but I feel like they're focusing a lot on the drama between the designers these days. That being said -this season had some truly talented designers (albeit some truly weird ones as well) that had great personalities and I looked forward to seeing their creations each week. I thought the changes this season were good ones. The blind runway makes sense because surely judges start to have favorites at some point. SPOILER - I think the Tim Gunn save went to the wrong person but I think it's a good idea for him to be able to rescue a designer. The judges and Tim getting a close up of the designs was fun to watch and I'm glad they took craftsmanship very seriously this season.

Not the best season of designers, but I still like it
Verified purchase
I have seen all episodes and seasons of Project Runway since the beginning, and feel that the designers from Season 12 were not as compelling as in other seasons.

I do like how they changed things up a bit in Season 12 and have the anonymous runway show, where the judges don't know who the desinger of the fashion look is until after the runway show. Also, the judges look at the designs up close along with Tim Gunn after the runway as they are making decisions for the winner and loser of the challenge which is really nice. Plus, Tim Gunn is granted one "save" for the season where he can opt to save a designer who will otherwise be eliminated.

Good season overall, but I feel that the design talent is slightly lacking.

Fun, entertaining, and you sometimes learn something
Verified purchase
I love this show, and I'm not a reality TV fan AT ALL. However, Tim Gunn majes me smile, and I even catch my husband chuckling at his comments. I like the fashions. I enjoy the byplay between designers until they get to weepy or bitchy. I enjoy the critiques a lot—good way to learn something about fashion and why things do or do not work. I wish the first few seasons were available, but sadly, Bravo has benched them. If you like fast-paced programming that doesn't lag, and you enjoy women's clothes, try this—you might get a kick out of all the personalities and the celebs that show up to judge from time to time.
