Is Your Faith Restored in Project Runway?

The latest season of Project Runway premiered this week, and I have to say — I'm impressed. I was excited about the return to New York and the potential that comes with a fresh new group of contestants. Now that I've seen the first episode, I'm encouraged that the show will be an exciting must see again.

From the portfolios we glimpsed onscreen and the first looks the designers sent down the runway, it seems like the competitors are as talented as they are quirky (my early faves? Jay and Seth Aaron). And it was so, so comforting to hear Michael Kors telling a designer what odd object his dress resembled, and Nina icily tearing down an outfit. So if you watched, tell me, do you think Project Runway is back to its old standards, or do you think it's lost its mojo?

I think it's so stupid that people were all up in arms about last season - every season has been the same! The only difference last season (and the only legitimate complaint I think any fan could have) was that the judges weren't consistent and some of the celeb judges were boring (and some of them were great). I don't ask a lot from this show; I love the judges and the fashion and I don't care whether or not the contestants are flamboyant or loud or crazy. As far as I'm concerned; faith never waivered...

The only reason Ping was in the top 3 was the wording of the challenge. If she continues to design dresses that make women look unwieldy, my guess is that she'll be out. I think the first episode is kind of hard to tell on shows like this. There are so many contestants, and all of them claim to be the best/try to stand out the most/have a catch phrase.I like my reality shows the best when they get down to fewer contestants (around 8 or so) as it is easier to get acquainted with them then.

I voted yes, but I read on BPR they are considering going back to LA again in season 8. If they do that I'm going to be super disappointed. It's not at all the same.

The designers look a lot more talented than last season!I'm disappointed in the person that went home, I was really excited about what that person was going to design based on the portfolios they showed.And HOW THE HELL was Ping in top 3?! How?

Definitely restored. I actually cared for who might win the challenge. I hate to diss the city, but the LA season just plain sucked.

I already love Anthony. You can tell he's going to make us all laugh like crazy. I've missed contestants like him. I still don't think any contestant has made me laugh as much as Santino, but we'll see!

BTW, I'm so happy that they are back in NYC. I hope this means MK and NG are back to stay!

Judging by the portfolios they showed at the beginning of the episode, these designers look pretty talented. Hopefully they will be able to let that shine through in the challenges.

I definitely think it's getting it's mojo back! Thankfully we can put that whole LA season in the past and lock it away and never think of it again.
