*sigh* I TOLD myself that after gruesome Gretchen won, I was done with PR. Oh, but there I was, watching again. I thought this cast was one of the most under talented I've seen yet. Compared with the Santino Season? Snaoooze.
The whole show this time around was more about the designers NOT knowing what to do rather than enhancing their already great skills. One reason I liked Bert so much was that at least he knew what the hell he was doing. Viktor Luna had stunning designs week after week. He could make stuff in 2 days that looked like they took weeks. People hated Josh's personality but I liked him. Sorry but at least he was fun and a bit bitchy. You need that dramaz, especially in a dull season. PLUS, his clothes were interesting.
The finale was a let down...hey, remember the days when the designers were thrown another challenge on top of everything else? These guys get 2 days and $500 at MOOD to "enhance" their collections! WTH! Anya has nothing to show that doesn't look like it came from my old home ec class but manages to whip up an entire new collection in 2 days. Guess it pays not to have to sew.
The end was such a disappointment. I have no words. After seeing the entire season--and coveting Viktor's coat and his OWN dang fabrics, I can't believe they chose Anya. Josh came in 2nd and really deserved to be at the top, imo. Either he or Viktor should have won. Anya had the same dress the entire show! Come on..not only that, the fabrics were pre-printed from MOOD. I think her edgy "look" and 1/2 shaved head wooed the judges into thinking her winning would give Project Runway a 'face'. Ugh... sorry..you lost a viewer AGAIN. Now let's see if I can keep my promise not to watch.
PR has a "hot face" as the winner, that's about it, imo.
