TV to knit to-

I've never seen Star Wars-not the original, not the sequels, prequels, or spin-offs. At first, I just wasn't interested, then it became a cult hit, so I chose to be obverse. I've never actually watched Survivor, Desperate Housewives, and with the exception of 4 weeks in season one, no American Idol.

But I love Project Runway. It's the only show I ever record besides What Not To Wear (BBC). I was surprised at how grumpy I was when I realized I forgot to set the DVR last Wednesday. (We all know darned good and well my DH will not sit thru an episode!) I find it comforting that other people BESIDES me screw up garments.

I know the network has a lot of input. I've seen the garment scores, and they don't necessarily match each week's "winners" and the "losers". I know they slant the clips like crazy to produce "Good TV"...

We are down to Fashion's Final Five. I like Uli, I like Michael-both of them come off as likeable people. I can't stand Jeffrey, who may be ok in real life, but comes off as an asshole. However, he has a good edgy thing going on. I LOVE Kayne-but he veers dangerously toward flamboyant design, sort of Castro goes to the prom. The only thing they all have in common is they have original thoughts and act on them.

My least favorite is Laura-geez, I hope she gets auf'd this week. She likes to "redesign" the same low-necked, Empire waist shape again and again. Or possibly her thing is copying vintage Oscar de la Renta, I am not exactly sure. See what I mean?


And from what I've seen on the previews, she plans to use "Oscar Templates" center and right this week! Auf with her butt!

Whitney loves PR, as does most everyone I know. I'm not there yet. But, I am with you on the "What not to Wear".

I REALLY like reading Project Rungay, because those guys are hysterical. Am I right about Laura and Oscar? Man, that girl is dull.

whitney said...

bets, there was a very sad moment in my apartment last night. first, i could NOT believe they let those turds try to come back on the show...luckily, neither prevailed! then, our poor kaynie...at least he made it this far with all of his fabulousness!

i am now putting all of my rooting energy into michael :)

Now don't speak badly of my precious Laura! I adore her wackiness, sharp tongue and elegant designs. But I believe you got your wish bc the NY Post covered the PR collections at the Spring '07 shows in NYC and our Laura didn't get a mention. Also found photos of each of the PR collections shown last Friday and lovely Laura's were decidedly Fall-looking, long sleeves, black lace, turtlenecks. So assume she was auf'd. The other 3 finalists showed Spring collections.
