Project Runway: Are you watching?

I've been watching this season halfheartedly at best. I'm not sure why it's not holding my attention. Is it the move to LA? The absence of Nina and Michael? The fact that none of the contestants are particularly entertaining or memorable?

I guess that's a lot of reasons.
Are you watching?

I'm watching and I think it is a lackluster season, too. For all of the reasons you said. But I still like the design process and will keep tuning in.

I am watching, and I think the regular judges being so absent has definitely been a part of how boring (love Nina!) the season has been. But none of the contestants are truly standing out, in personality but more importantly in design. Some very talented people, obviously, but no Christian Siriano among them.

No, I basically stopped watching after my friend Brandon was kicked off the latest season of Project Runway Canada (with Iman as host). He kinda deserved to be booted, but it was difficult to watch after.

I'm still watching, but I'm mad that there's someone they haven't kicked off yet. But I'm pretty sure it will be soon. And I agree that a lack of continuity in judges makes it harder for them to properly judge the contestants because I think that consistency should also be evaluated.

Christina Aguilera was a terrible judge but I was really impressed with Milla Jojovich. She had a lot of good comments to make.

No. I'm totally overwhelemed with the amount of shows I'm watching right now. I can't add any that aren't awesome!

I still watch it and think that the talent level of these designers is really amazing but I admit that sometimes I fall asleep. I think the Asian designer at the beginning of the season with his nesting egg pregnant outfit should not have been sent home. It set the tone for the rest of the season for very safe wearable clothes but not edgy outfits. Maybe it is just me. Mary

I'm still watching it, but I agree it's not the same this season. There isn't that one designer who's doing things so differently that you're so overly impressed, but you also know you could never wear what he/she creates. Everything is too "sellable." And I do miss Michael and Nina. Especially Michael. Now Heidi's left to make their tough comments!

I'm watching. I think some of the designers are pretty good. And I like Models of the Runway, too. Aunt T
