I think the UK is 'owed' at least 1 more series of UnReal. Which was the last one you saw? Was it the Black Bachelor (S2), or Lady Techie Bacherlorette (S3)?

foxybrown - 04 May 2019 03:30:43 (#911 of 960)

Black batchelor, I thought that was S3

Whatever I googled said S4 was only 8 episodes and was the last

Sadly, I’m never going to see Unreal.

And this neither- Making The Cut on Amazon prime Heidi Klum, Tim Gunn, Naomi Campbell and Nicole Richie judges on a seemingly Project Runway copycat

As Christian Siriano and Karlie Kloss now present PR, which hasn’t appeared on Sky

KittyKarateRedux - 16 Jan 2020 08:20:34 (#913 of 960)

Ah PR is on bloody HAYU. Surely all these competing content networks can't continue? I guess I could surf the free trials to watch it next time I've got time off.

Amazon has stopped dishing out so many free trials these days, or I'd suggest you held out until March for when the Gunn/Klum thing starts and have a binge month.

Yes and Sky doesn't seem to be getting many of these programmes either, its crazy to be subscribing to all these things. Im about to break and get Netflix

Whatever happened to * Next Top Model shows? I miss them so much.

I've been watching Amazon's attempt at Project Runway (Making the Cut). It's alright. In some ways it works better - it's no longer a shamateur competition, everyone on it is already a semi or fully professional designer. There is a seamstress service who do the sewing overnight on the challenges, so sewing skills do not have to be top of the line (but having some skills is DEFINITELY helpful). You have to wonder how much Amazon selling the winning clothes changes who actually gets through. Tim and Heidi are a delight as ever. They have a new magazine editor judge Carine Roitfeld (or at least in the first few episodes) who has resting 'I can smell a fart face' when watching the clothes. Naomi Campbell has shown up as a friend of Heidi on the judging panel - at one point she was shushed for being too rude about the clothes on the runway in case everyone heard.

When Glow Up gets close to a finish on BBC 3 I'll make a start on that. I hated Ding Dong woman.

StakludKar - 22 May 2020 20:46:27 (#916 of 960)

Naomi Campbell is 50 (but has she got Old Knees?)

foxybrown - 23 May 2020 17:44:05 (#917 of 960)

I've seen one of the new Glow Up its a poor substitute

Tyra Banks got some heat a couple of weeks ago as the old ANTMs were revisited, particularly Danielle and her gap teeth

I remember when Naomi was at least a year older than me, now she's 2 months younger.

DejaLu - 23 May 2020 18:53:17 (#918 of 960)

I’ve noticed Naomi getting younger, too!

Resurrecting the thread - I've just started Next in Fashion on Netflix. Seemingly a poor man's Project Runway with Alexander Chingford who's legs are like twigs and some bloke with a grey quiff. Anyone else watched?

KittyKarateRedux - 27 Mar 2021 14:09:02 (#920 of 960)

Not watched, but will find it!

foxybrown - 27 Mar 2021 14:17:26 (#921 of 960)

God bless lockdown because I wouldn't be sitting here otherwise.

foxybrown - 27 Mar 2021 14:18:48 (#922 of 960)

I look forward to your critique Kitty

Did you see the new PR with Christian Siriano? I don't think they showed it over here

KittyKarateRedux - 29 Mar 2021 12:54:50 (#923 of 960)

I haven't seen any new PR as they ended up streaming on Hayu, and I'm already paying for far too many streaming services.

So, I watched 2 episodes of the Netflix Next in Fashion. I'm mostly in for it. Things I wasn't sure on- the bad blind date teams vs people who know each other already. Not sure that it's very fair. I hope they split the teams soon, so those who cannot sew are exposed. I felt particularly sorry for the teams eliminated in the first 2 episodes, as they seemed like clever/good people torpedoed by raging egos who were unwilling to listen.

- The haberdashery cupboard, I love the stress of shopping in Mood and just having everything there feels too 'easy'.

I didn't mind the presenters, though I find Alexa a bit bland. (and blimey - how thin are her legs in episode 1?).

I did think the quality of designs produced so far are so much more polished than in Project Runway, where they had to hide the glue guns in the end.

foxybrown - 29 Mar 2021 16:39:49 (#924 of 960)

Yes I thought the Teams thing was very unfair but missed how they chose their partners, did they know each other prior to the show.

I finished the lot, I like it (unsurprisingly as its a near copy of PR!) apart from the presenters. Too irritating. It was not picked up for a second series

foxybrown - 29 Mar 2021 16:42:13 (#925 of 960)

my daughter and I were gagging at Alexa's legs in ep1 and my daughter said thank god she's covered them, when she wore trousers in ep2 - she's very cruel

foxybrown - 29 Mar 2021 16:42:59 (#926 of 960)

And bad news- they don't split the teams soon

Tenesmus - 29 Mar 2021 16:57:05 (#927 of 960)

Is there anything like this on normal space telly? I get bonus points for finding this sort of thing.

KittyKarateRedux - 29 Mar 2021 17:24:39 (#928 of 960)

Yes I thought the Teams thing was very unfair but missed how they chose their partners, did they know each other prior to the show.

It seemed to be a bit odd - some people clearly knew each other outside the show 'No-Doubt boys' 'dragon princess' 'streetwear ladies'.

I don't know how they matched the rest up, maybe it was like a designer tindr thing or the producers just went "meh, they both went to st martins, that'll do". In theory - they seem to have done the teams so you get a mix of skills in the teams when they matched them up e.g menswear vs womenswear, ideas design versus hands on sewing.

KittyKarateRedux - 29 Mar 2021 17:30:17 (#929 of 960)

Is there anything like this on normal space telly?

Sadly not that I can think of, it's all sitting on streaming services.

Amazon did one called Making the Cut with Timm and Heidi.Project Runway is on Hayu or something similar

However, I'm totally in for the BBC2 jewellery making thing, as it's my type of thing
