TAR24, Recap Leg 7, 4/13/14



Welcome to Leg 7! Last time, on Tuk-Tuk-A-Palooza, teams continued to race through Sri Lanks.  Rachel failed at a Roadblock.  The Afghanimals and the Cowboys battled for first place in a footrace to the mat.  And Caroline and Jennifer found themselves in last place on the second non-elimination leg of the race.  Who will be eliminated. . . next?

Under the Gunn, or It's Weird How I Am Not as Angry as Usual

I feel like my usual opinions of "Project Runway" depend a lot on who wins and if I think the producers were too involved with it. And that answer is usually "yes". You can see it if you look at the ratings for this show. There's a site where you can view ratings by episode, and see trends, and for every season of "Project Runway" the ratings at the end of the season are lower than at the beginning. Meaning as the season goes on people abandon the show. I wonder if this show had the same thing. (click for more)

Under the Gunn, or I Think I Saw Superhero Fashion on Tumblr

We've only got one more episode to go I think. I wonder how this show's been doing and if they'll do it again. Overall it wasn't that bad. Somewhat less rage-inducing than "Project Runway", although that isn't particularly hard. (click for more)

TAR24, Recap Leg 6, 3/30/14



Welcome to Leg 6! Last time, on Sewing.  It Just Had to Be Sewing, teams made their way from Kuala Lumpur to Colombo, Sri Lanka (which, I might add, is not the administrative capital, that’s Sri Jayawardenapura Kotte, but Colombo is so much easier to spell).  Two teams took flight risks, and one didn’t pay off.  In the meantime, Dave and Connor rocked their way to another first place finish, and Margie and Luke finished last and were eliminated.  Who will be eliminated. . . next?

Under the Gunn, or "Real Women" Challenges Just Aren't the Same

Look, I cringed just as much as everyone else when they would have the "real women" challenge and some designer was an asshat to whoever. But for several seasons there hasn't been any drama at all because everyone got genre savvy and quit doing it. So now...I guess we focus on someone's allergy to the fabric. (click for more)

TAR24, Recap Leg 5, 3/23/14



Welcome to Leg 5! Last time, on Your Homework Is to Go Home and Watch “Cocktail”, teams flew to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Teams jumped on wood, and mostly failed at trick pours. Jet and Cord managed to actually win a leg, despite 47 attempts at the Roadblock. Brendon and Rachel felt switching Detours was the same as quitting and wasted three hours trying to get done, only to find out it was a non-elimination leg and they’re still racing. Woo. Who will be eliminated. . . next? (click for more)

Under the Gunn, or Who Is Going to Wear a Lace Ruffle For a Bra?

Were we supposed to hate Natalia from the start? And think she doesn't deserve to be there? Because I can think of more than one person *cough*MICHAEL COSTELLO*cough* who very good but stuck around and won challenges with ugly/boring clothes. And I felt much more strongly about that. Natalia I thought was OK; not like I thought she'd win or that I was rooting for her, but I didn't rail about how she should be gone. (click for more)
