Project Runway Recap: The Fashion Farm

Runway Previously: A whole herd of vaguely indistinguishable people showed up. Sewed things. Currently: A whole herd minus one! This is Project Runway!

Project Runway Recap: "Back to New York"

Runway So I've been sitting here, watching NBC's primetime lineup and feeling really bad about it, what with Jeff Zucker and Jay Leno being the devil twins incarnate or whatever, waiting for Project Runway to start, getting increasingly anxious because WHAT IF IT SUCKS AGAIN? One transitional season we can forgive, right? But two awful seasons, back to back?

Project Runway Season 7 Sneak Peek!

Runway SPOILER ALERT: It's Tim Gunn at his Tim Gunniest, being adorably concerned while at least one designer flips out of his skull.

Meet the Project Runway Season 7 Designers

Picture 24 And when I say "meet" I course really mean "let's look at their promo photos and make sweeping, baseless predictions about them."

Project Runway Recap: "Finale, Part II"

Runway OH MAH GOD. I HAVE HAD MUCH WINE. Note to self: Do not schedule "date night" on a ProjRun FINALE night, especially a date night that involves MUCH WINE and power outages and transformers blowing the hell up and WHATEVER, THIS. Is Project Runway.

Project Runway Recap: "Finale, Part 1"

Runway Hi. My name is Amy. I'll be your recapper for this evening and I am still really, REALLY annoyed about last week's episode. Even more so than when I wrote last week's recap. I've taken some time and pondered some stuff and grown as a person and I now officially hate Irina's drapey drape of calf-muscle tummy-pooch sadness more than anything ever and Althea's hot mess of unfinishedness and if I knew what any of the ProjRun producers actually looked like and saw them in a parking lot I would totally whack them in the kneecaps with a tire iron and then be all, NO, YOU MAKE IT WORK, BITCHES.

All right then. Let's get this terrible season over with.

Project Runway Recap: "The Art of Fashion"

Pr6-ep12-19 Previously: Zzzzzzzzzzzzz.

Currently: Zzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

(In other news, the mouse and keyboard of my MacBook are officially, completely fucked. The cursor keeps jumping around and deleting whole chunks of text and moving shit around and I have a date with the Genius Bar but in the meantime please to excuse any typos and/or formatting weirdness I may have missed. I blame sabotage by Peanut Butter & Jelly Fingers . Children! Kids! Monsters.)

(THIS. Is Project Runway.)

Project Runway Recap: "Best of the Best"

Picture 32 Previously, we said goodbye to Little Lord Peppermint Fauntleroy. Currently, we're getting ready for a new episode of the "most talked-about season yet," according to the Lifetime voiceover. Well, that's ONE way of spinning all the "WORST SEASON EVER" declarations?

THIS. Is Project Runway! A pale poop-brown shadow of its former ferocious self.

Project Runway Recap: Korsapalooza!

Project-runway Last week, Christina Aguilera was as orange as Michael Kors, and Sherin out-fugged the rest and was sent home. 

THIS is Project Runway!

Project Runway Recap: "Sequins, Feathers and Fur, Oh My!"

Pr6-ep9-35_1 Previously: We THOUGHT the problem was the stupid challenges...until they gave us a decent challenge and the stupid guest judges inexplicably ousted Epperson. We also THOUGHT we hated previous episode titles until we saw this one. Gaaaaaaahhhhd, you guys.

(Also, for the record, my four-year-old came out of bed five times during the initial airing.)

EIGHT designers left? Eight? That seems like way too many. Did this season start off with 27 contestants or something? I can haz double elimination week plz?

This week's challenge features Bob Motherfucking Mackie! He is remarkably well-preserved, like a fine vintage holiday-edition Barbie doll. Our little bitches are to create an extravagant stage look, inspired by Mackie's style. Which, for Christopher and those of us who did not go to design school, is technically defined as: B-A-N-A-N-A-S. Bananas with a side of Sparklecorn.

Project Runway Recap: "A Fashionable New Beginning"

Pr6-ep8-2 Okay, Show. Sit down. We're gonna have a little pre-episode pep talk here.


I mean it. I may have committed to recapping the entire season here, but so help me God, if you do not start delivering us some 1) non-lame, non-boring, non-generic-cute-dress challenges, 2) Michael Kors and Goddamn Nina Garcia Fashion Director Of Marie Claire at every judging panel, and 3) look, I don't actually have a third specific demand but I feel like I needed another sentence to make my point that things are just Not Good -- rest assured that I have NO PROBLEM with posting a four-sentence recap every Friday that says little more than: blue crap, brown crap, insane crotch, unfinished hem, zzzzz. And then I will pass out vodka shots to all the commenters while we sit around and bitch about how great this show used to be.

Are we clear? Okay. Let's try this again.


October 02, 2009

Project Runway Recap: "The Sky Is the Limit"

Pr6-ep7-1Previously: Okay, so there's a Nicolas in my son's preschool class, and GOD, y'all, I gave a four-year-old  the stinkeye this week because REALLY? CHEAP FREDRICK'S OF HOLLYWOOD ICE QUEEN FABRICS REALLY? I think I may need to see a psychiatrist who specializes in Reality Show Overload Syndrome.

Currently: These people. These producers. And Lifetime. It's just not looking good.


September 25, 2009

Project Runway Recap: "Lights, Cameras, Sew!"

Pr6-ep6-7Previously: Johnny flailed, lied. Nicolas cackled, lost. Buses! Throwing! The death of traditional print media!

Currently: KILLING ME, with these cheesy episode titles.

Newsflash: Everyone is actually pretty happy to see Johnny go. The competition will be more serious, less loud, plus they're finally allowed to unlock the cabinet with all the cold medicine.

Nicolas busts out a classic reality show cliche. "I'm not here to make real good friends."

Project Runway Recap: "Fashion Headliners"

 Pr6-ep5-11 It is 10:02 P.M. and I am about to hit "play" on my TiVo, but I am looking at the episode title with a mixture of triumph and disdain because CLEARLY, I totally called the newspaper-fabric thing last week. But if I called it -- as someone who never even once correctly predicted the solution to a goddamn Encyclopedia Brown mystery -- then there are truly no surprises left in Project Runway Land.




September 11, 2009

Project Runway Recap: "What a Woman Wants"

Previously: Non-hot, non-tranny MESSES. Not even hot messes. Warmed-over-in-the-microwave messes.

(My husband just hurled a Peppermint Patty at my head, and I'm not talking about Nicolas.)*

Qrytlis-I'm-not-even-going-to-try-spelling-that-this-week frets that she's going to be known as the bitch, after last week's bus-throwing with Epperson. She spells "bitch" out loud, correctly even. Gordana tells her she simply failed to stand up for herself. Also: she sucks, but Gordana is not a B-Y-T-C-H.
