It's true that "Project Runway" has a new producing team. But give them props for retaining the basic elements, like the runway set. I read Heidi was a bit disappointed that virtually everything was the same, right down to the music.
If you don't think that matters, consider what Bravo did with its replacement series. Just my opinion, but I thought it was awful. Isaac Mizrahi was a real tool as the host.
Next season they are back in New York (already shot), with Nina and Michael once again making a steady (and bitchy) contribution as judges. That's direct from Nina.
I happen to agree with many of the posters here that the designs this time out were not up to the standards of seasons past. Who really knows how that happens? At least the designers weren't asked to dress the models in leaves and twigs as in previous seasons.
I haven't agreed with the judges on any of the past winners. Some of the finalists who proved themselves to be craftsmen were pushed aside in favor of contestants with little more to offer than chutzpah. I was rooting for Christopher because he seemed to want it so much. And then there's Logan.
Damn, he's hot.
