    I wish I were more excited about this than I am, but I’m certainly still going to watch.  Are they still doing 90-minute shows or are they back to just an hour?

    Yeah, my enthusiasm waned a little after the Gretchen season, but I’ll be watching.  At the very least it’ll be worth watching to see the wonderful Tim Gunn!  From Lifetime’s schedule it looks like a 90 min. episode starting at 9, repeating at 10:30.  I’m not sure if that is just for the season premiere or for the whole season.  Personally, I remember liking having a 90 minute season opener, just because so many designs fly by and you barely know the designers yet.  However, I got tired of having such a long show for the rest of the season, with so much filler drama.

    I’m glad they appear to be sticking to the 90-minute formula. It really opened up the show. I’m surprised they didn’t do that for the All-Stars season.

    Also, you may have heard that two designers quit in the first week of shooting. I don’t know if they were lured back or what happened afterwards.

    I agree, my excitement for the show is pretty much gone too. I’m not even sure, if I will be watching all of it.
    It wasn’t the Gretchen Season that killed it for me (Infact this was one of my favorite seasons) it was the atrocity of the Anya season. All about personal dramas, the wrong designers were put in the spotlight and even made it to the finale. Ugh actually it can only get better from this…

    I didn’t care for the Anya season either- to me, it continued the decline I started feeling with the Gretchen season.  And I’m all for a reasonable amount of personal dramas- a reality show wouldn’t be a reality show without them- but somewhere along the line this and other shows decided to start milking the dramas too much.  Surely to a point this *does* make for a more interesting show, but not to the point that it backfires.  Many of us still watch primarily to see the designs, strange as that may seem 😉

    Really, though, I stay interested mainly because of Gunn, and to a lesser extent, Klum.  And we’ll see if any/many of the designers can keep my interest this year.

    I do love the Tim Gunn/Heidi Klum combo. 

    I actually started to lose excitement for the show in what was, I believe, the season before the Gretchen season.  It was a season where Michael and Nina were not there A LOT, so there were a ton of guest judges, which is cool because it’s nice to see faces rotated in and out, but there was so little continuity that weak designers (like Logan, who I loved as a personality but clearly wasn’t bringing it, design-wise) stuck around for way too long while stronger ones were eliminated on what felt like a whim.  I agree that both the Gretchen season and Anya season lost their focus, both in terms of the stuff we had to sit through and in the judges’ interpretations of what was great vs. what was so-so.  Gretchen was an awful winner, IMO.  But her season did produce some pretty juicy episodes.  I loved that one insane group challenge where, at the end of the episode, Tim comes in and blasts the team for letting Gretchen manipulate and control them.  The trainwreck meltdown on the runway was Emmy-worthy, but then they kept pusing these grudges and personality clashes and cattiness way past the point they should have.

    I loved Anya and her many, many, maxi dresses, who only sewed for FOUR MONTHS! I didn’t realize the show was returning this week. I’m curious to see what the new fields of designers is like. Maybe they’ll be some surprises along the way. They’ll need to do that at this point to keep things fresh, if that’s possible.

    Weird group this year. It’s more of an international flavor this season, and that’s a good thing. I think I could listen to Buffi talk all day.

    Crazy to think that it’s been 10 seasons and eight years already. I’m glad they brought back Patricia Field as a guest judge, who was the first judge in the first episode lo these many years ago. Lauren Graham is just basically a fan of the show with some knowledge of fashion, so it was good they had someone who works in the field to back her up.

    The judges certainly didn’t hold back, did they? That has to be a punishing experience to just stand there and be shredded when you know you didn’t perform at your best. Ouch.

    Once again, I’m happy they kept the 90-minute length. Cramming all of that into just 60 minutes would have been too frantic.

    Tim Gunn, love you more than my luggage.

    By the way, fans of the show have to read the Tom & Lorenzo blog and Twitter. They started out as fans with the “Project Rungay” blog and now they’re basically network-approved, but they’re still very sharp and funny.

    Nice returning episode. I think the right two people were in the bottom two, and I would have been fine with either going home. The weirdo Japanese guy could have been picked too, but I think he’ll stay around a while longer for added laughs (or drama) while the judges try to figure him out. Tim Gunn is on his game as usual. The judges were as biting as ever (Nina and Tim really went in on some of these people, and for the most part, they deserved it). Patricia Field’s voice sounds like an eighty-year-old lifelong smoker, and for some reason, I dig that. The Times Square show seemed like fun, and I liked the large-scaleness of it for their big tenth anniversary show.

    Also. congrats on the Emmy nomination for Reality/Competition Program! Season 9 certainly had its moments, so I hope they choose well in submissions. I knew they would still make it in. I just didn’t guess that they’d drop “American Idol” for “The Voice” (thought that they would be more likely to let go of “So You Think You Can Dance?” first, and the new singing competition shows would cancel themselves out).

    This was a good episode, it was filled with the usual Project Runway elements. Annoying contestants were there, horrible names were there, horrible hair, horrible makeup, awful tattoos (a mensroom sign?), incredibly idiotic attitudes, Tim, Nina, etc…It was a nice episode for the show.

    Already this Gunnar character feels like a Joshua Part II, in fact it’s as if Joshua never happened and you know, Joshua DID happen…a lot!. But in this first episode Gunnar trumped Joshua in the Top Annoying contestants. I really don’t know if he was worse than the sight of that guy with the bang, Raul I think it’s his name, what exactly is the purpose of just having that tiny bit of hair on your forehead? 

    The deserving people were in the bottom, although the old lady could’ve been there too. I don’t get what was so special about Melissa, do girls really want to wear that? Does Heidi really want to wear it? I guess keeping the uncomfortable asian kid was better than somebody who thinks snake skin in the middle of your chest is a good idea.

    My cable was out last night, so I only just caught the episode on the Lifetime site.  It was a pretty good first episode, introducing all the designers.  Already I don’t like Gunnar- he is just picking fights for no reason, just so he can take some of the spotlight and appear more interesting.  Raul with the bang– I’m calling him “Squiggy”; didn’t care for his designs and I wouldn’t have minded if he’d been in the bottom.  Ven’s rose bustier was absolutely gorgeous- I have a feeling he didn’t win because the overall looks were slightly conservative.  Christopher was a good winner- *loved* his longer gown.  He reminds me of Michael C.  Melissa’s dresses were okay, but I didn’t care for the leather jacket.  I don’t think I’d put her quite in the top 3, but I can’t think of who I might’ve liked better.  She reminds me so much of the Olsen twins that I think I”ll call her Mary Kate 🙂

    The right ones were in the bottom, though I think I would’ve preferred if Lanty had left.  Beatriz’s dresses were plain, and the cape was strange, but at least they weren’t as fugly as Lanty’s.  I had a feeling they’d keep the Japanese guy around awhile, just because his “personality” (I use the term loosely) would get better ratings.  The first outfit was a hot mess, and not in a good way, but the 2nd one was sufficiently strange that I guess I’d be okay with seeing what else he can do.

    Among the rest, I actually liked the older woman’s first look, though the second was pretty awful- the model looked like a pregnant bumblebee.  I loved Dmitri (is that him- the good looking one?)’s first gown, but not his other look.  I’m curious to see what the lesbian gal will do.  I didn’t care for the gal with the black ninja look- don’t we see a designer who does that every season??  

    Edited to add- I actually thought that Lauren Graham was one of the worst guest judges they’ve had.  I don’t think she made one comment that was really worthwhile.  YMMV.  Loved Patricia Field, though- hope she’ll be in some more episodes.

    Look forward to the season!

    I was calling her Tara Reid Olsen. I was watching it with a friend and we also got the Michael C thing with Christopher, even down to the crying and whining only to end up winning. Everything was Michael C, not just physical.

    God, Gunnar has to be one of the most annoying contestants this show has ever seen. (Christopher isn’t much better.)

    Also agree with the comments about Lauren Graham. Her “critique” about how some designers are famous for designing t-shirts, come on. If they’re going to have guest judges who are actresses at least get actresses who are known to be fashion icons.

    I wasn’t really impressed with Melissa’s clothes either. I’m not sure why the judges felt that the modern girl would run out and buy her clothing considering her models looked like zombies.

    And lastly — Beatrice was the right contestant to go home. Lantie and Kooan both have unique styles and some promise at least and aren’t just, as Michael said, snuggie designers.
