The Voice, Oct. 21 – Real Battles

Unlike the previous week's battles, these really are battles and not duets. Not that duets are bad, it just makes it really hard to choose one or see one of ...

The Voice, Oct. 15 – Battles or Duets?...

These battles continue to blow me away. They are all so good that I'd rather have them just keep them around as duets. If you listen to the iTunes ...

Looking through preview of who will be performing tonight, I can't say I want half of them to go home. I'm hoping for a lot of saves, but if it ...

Ricky Bobby, despite being a race car driver, is one of the last names I'd expect to come up on The Amazing Race. Nevertheless, the "great Ricky Bobby" is quoted ...

It's the last of the blind auditions. None of the coaches have many spots left on their team, and they're all being super-picky. Cee Lo Green, of course, has the ...

There's nothing better than great editing that shows contestants being pompous, only to end up eating those words later on. One team member starts out calling his team "survivors and ...

Project Runway Season 10: Off to Times Square

Welcome to the tenth regular season of Project Runway.  After the experiments of All-Stars, with a new host, a new mentor, and new judges, the tenth season brings back the old crowd:  Heidi, Tim, Michael, and Nina.  Unfortunately, it also brings back the hour and a half running time, which will doubtless be filled with endless shots of people sewing and/or sniping at each other.  We get enough of that even when the show’s just an hour long.  Trust me. Before the show proper starts, [...]

Project Runway All-Stars: Vampires, Safaris, and Therapy, Oh My!

Last week on Project Runway, the three finalists faced their last challenge:  Make a mini-collection of five outfits in four days.  Inevitably, they also faced the inevitable Project Runway “twist”:  Make an extra outfit in the remaining time.  (I put “twist” in quotation marks, because Project Runway does this every season, so it really can’t be considered unexpected.)  The real twist — in the sense of something unexpected — was that the designers had to make the sixth outfit out of leftover fabric from earlier [...]

Project Runway All-Stars, Mar. 15 – Funks and Frantic Days

Last week on Project Runway, the designers all got a lesson on the business end of their chosen industry.  They had to design for a client, Nanette Lepore, a fashion designer associated with Nieman Marcus.  Their looks had to fall within a given price range and they had to work within a very small budget.  They also had to accept feedback from their client and make something she would be happy to sell.  Mondo won and Kenley was sent home.  For the first time in [...]

Project Runway All-Stars: Of Fashion and Business Sense

Last week on Project Runway, the designers had to create looks that incorporated lighting technology, be it actual lights or glow-in-the-dark neon strips.  The runway show was the first in Project Runway history to be held under black light.  Austin won and Jerrell was sent home. The following morning, the designers have breakfast, and Kenley wonders out loud what the challenge will be.  “Probably designing something,” says Mondo.  Thank you, Captain Obvious.  Let’s narrow it down a tad, shall we?  Mondo later comments that this [...]

Project Runway All-Stars, Mar.1 – Lights! Camera! Fashion!

Last week on Project Runway, the designers visited the United Nations building.  They also had to make dresses inspired by flags.  Mondo won and Mila was sent home. No shots of designers waking up or having breakfast or the like.  Instead, it’s off to the runway, where Angela tells the designers that for their next challenge, they will have to “light up the runway.”  The camera crew then turn off the lights and turn on black light, so the designers can see that Angela’s skirt [...]

Project Runway All-Stars, Feb. 23 – United Nations of Fashion

Last week on Project Runway, the designers visited Broadway.  There they learned they would have to make a costume for a character in a Godspell revival.  Mondo won and Kara was sent home. The following morning, Mila vows to “wow” the judges– which probably means she is going home.  Too often, when a designer makes such a vow, they end up in the bottom.  Austin, meantime, tells us that he thinks Kara deserved to stay over Mila or Jerrell.  He and Kenley then talk about [...]

Project Runway All-Stars, Feb. 16 – Live on Broadway

Last week on Project Runway, the designers had to make sportswear for a high-end vacation during any one of the four seasons (spring, summer, fall, and winter).  They were divided into pairs according to which season they were using.  But rather than being teams, each pair had duke it out in a fashion face-off that produced one winner and one loser per pair.  Jerrell won and Rami was sent home. The following morning, at the apartment, Kenley and Austin talk about how shocked they are [...]

Project Runway All-Stars, Feb. 9 – It’s the Season…

Last week on Project Runway, the designers went to Central Park to find a “muse” who would inspire them– and give them clothes to serve as raw material for their newest look.  Mondo won and Anthony was sent home. The next morning, at the Flatotel, Mondo tells us that he finds Kenley loud, obnoxious, and annoying– but also kind of amusing.  He adds that he “loves to push her buttons.” On the runway, Angela has large totebags for everybody.  Since Mondo won last week, she [...]

Project Runway All-Stars, Feb. 2 – Hear Me, O Muse!

Last week on Project Runway All-Stars, the designers had to make an outfit inspired by gelato flavors — in six hours.  Michael became the apparent front-runner by winning his second challenge in a row, while April was sent home. The next day, the designers meet Angela in Central Park.  There she explains their next challenge:  They have to find a “muse”  during the next half hour.  In Greek mythology, a muse was one of nine goddesses credited with inspiring various artists, especially poets and playwrights.  [...]

Project Runway All-Stars, Jan. 26 – The Ultimate in Fast Fashion

Last week on Project Runway:  All-Stars, the designers had to make a cocktail dress for a very demanding client:  Miss Piggy, who needed something flamboyant to wear while promoting her latest movie.  (Yes, The Muppets has come and gone, but All-Stars was inexplicably bumped from its original summer slot to make way for Project Accessory.)  Michael won and Gordana was sent home. Back at their apartment, the other designers congratulate Michael on his win.  He’s pleased of course, but he tells us that he still [...]
