No kidding. Tim = Awesome, everyone else = subject to change without notice.

And they REALLY need to reconsider this trend of "Oops, here's another challenge, make two more outfits! Surprise!" it's NOT improving quality, just stressing the designers out.

That's what's killing me. BM have taken a perfectly good, skill-based show and tried to turn it into Survivor. For a dose of sanity, take a look at Top Chef which is still under the Magical Elves umbrella. They have their share of drama, but the show is still mainly about skill and time management. There's rarely a case when the cheftestants can't deliver decent quality in the time given.

Absolutely, the surprise twist adds nothing to the show, nothing to the challenge, and the designers don't learn anything from it. They need to watch reruns of the show when it was on Bravo and remember what made it a hit. I seriously do think they need focus group input. Maybe, but connecting with viewers, they can save the show. It really has great bones.

I wouldn't want to see Heidi gone, she can be annoying, but she really is a major part of the show. I wouldn't want to see Nina or Michael Korrs gone either. But, I'd like them to go back to the serious, considered critiques they gave pre Lifetime. It also seems that the new longer format has brought nothing to the show. I think it's all taken up by commercial time, there is probably only 10 more minutes of show.

I wouldn't mind if they auf'd Michael Kors. I find his Mad Libs critiques annoying. They aren't nearly as witty as he thinks they are, and they're certainly not constructive. I'll bet a lot of the designers they're aimed at stand there thinking, "WTF is he talking about?"

Heidi thinks she's the star of the show.
:lol: Poor thing, bless her heart.

After the undeniable Texas sized gap, I'd place ninagarcia as the second "star" of PR behind Tim. :encore:

Then Heidi, then Christian Siriano (since contestant designers are, four seasons hence, still trying to invoke him and to wit "be" him), then the classic runway itself ... then finally that bitter orange queen. :cat:

ETA: Just noticed that this thread says "Season 7" ... it's "Season 8" y'all. Oh, wait, unless we're ignoring that frightful foray into LA ... the equivalent of Amazing Race's "Edition for which we shall not speak its name". :drama:

Got me thinking. Wonder if Heidi's trip into the workroom is foreshadowing of a Tim-less PR? If so, I'm done.

I can't imagine they would be so stupid as to get rid of Tim. If they are, they deserve to lose the show.

The producers should realize how important Tim is to PR; and do whatever is necessary to keep him - and those of us who watch the show because of Tim - haooy!

If they get rid of Tim, I will stop watching.

And you went to FIDM or Parsons, yes Jayar?


Nope. But I never have posted here like I knew what I was talking about. I mention what I like, but I never give a technical rundown of dos and don'ts. And LC, have you ever been to a skating competition? 99 per cent of skating FANS are completely untiffed.

In my estimation, they could lose the comments from the designers during the runway show. I preferred it when they silently patted each other on the bat and looked like proud peacocks as their clothes were shown.

:angryfire So you lied , circa 2007, when you told me that my cat-embroidered "everything" bag and peg leg Jordaches were "a delicious combination of 'retro' and 'ahead of its time"?

I attended the show and will probably share more detailed thoughts as we reach the finale -- and yes I was totally wrong about Valerie making the top 3.

I'm in the middle of watching the NYC inspiration episode. I just had to jump up and say that I loved Tim Gunn's comments as Mondo was frantically zooming by him at Mood with some pretty intense, unidentifiable textiles! He chuckled and said,"I see you're going full Mondo!" :lol: :saint: :encore:

And Swatch was garbed in some sort of schmatta; I guess since I'm recording it, I'll have to go back and look at what constitutes canine couture!
