Project Runway All Stars 10/30/14--"Made in Manhattan" summary



Previously on Project Runway: All these people were on the show, and you’ll notice the only person from the Bravo era of the show is Chris March. Everyone else is a new Lifetime “eh, no one will notice our producer manipulation” contestant. Also last season you’ll remember Seth Aaron won, which means he won the regular show and then also All-Stars. That’s why you don’t need previous winners. (click for more)

Project Runway 10/30/14--"Reunion" summary



Previously on Project Runway: Sean won and a bunch of drama happened. I don’t need to recap it for you because we’re clearly going to talk about it for an hour. Should be some good drama. (click for more)

Top Chef 10/29/14--"The Curse of the Bambino" summary



Previously on “Top Chef”: The Quickfire tried to teach us about Paul Revere, which was not really educational but we’ve certainly had dumber themes. James wins, which makes him and his Patrick Swayze tattoo happy. But he does not get immunity. The Elimination Challenge is to serve some firefighters and police, and also be in teams. Of course since Aaron and Keriann had a dumb argument in the Stew Room they are on a team together, and proceed to fight the entire episode. But you know how this goes. A non-drama team will win, while the drama team is on the bottom but no one actually goes home from that team. Instead Joy, who served raw veal, was given the boot. (click for more)

TAR25, Recap Leg 5, 10/24/14



Welcome to Leg 5! Last time, on It May Be Mating Season, teams raced from the Shetland Islands down to Copenhagen, where the Cyclists took an early lead.  The Dentists fell completely apart, and the Flight Attendants were passive aggressive towards each other.  In the end, Kym and Alli won two cars, Shelley and Nici didn’t kill each other, and Misti and Jim tried to use the Save, but silly Phil wouldn’t let them as it was a non-elimination leg.  Who will be eliminated. . . next?

Project Runway 10/23/14--"Finale Part 2" summary



Previously on Project Runway: This dumb season. I can’t even bring myself to care who wins, meaning that my earlier animosity for Amanda has faded out because I’m tired of this show. The only person I dislike is Korina and even then I just want her to go. She’s not even a good villain. So everyone made collections and they didn’t eliminate anyone last week but they did tell everyone exactly how to win. Especially Kini. (click for more)

Top Chef 10/23/14--"Boston's Bravest and Finest" summary



Previously on “Top Chef”: Our season started in Boston, where everyone bragged about their awards (as you do) and Padma introduced both Richard Blais as a new judge, and the Sudden Death Quickfire, where someone can be sent home in the middle of the episode. I like this. It turns out it’s technically the CHANCE someone will be sent home, as George was the slowest in the mise in place relay race, but he got the chance to battle Gregory by cooking the mise in place ingredients. Had he won, he could have stayed, but Gregory won so George went home. I couldn’t bring myself to care that much because we just met him 20 minutes ago. Then everyone had to cook for the Top Chef Food Festival. You have to make a dish based on the first thing you learned to cook. Or something. I wasn’t paying attention. Mei made congee and won, while Michael made corn soup with salmon roe and was sent home. It didn’t sound that great. (click for more)

TAR25, Recap Leg 4, 10/17/14



Welcome to Leg 4! Last time, on My Livestock Animals of Northern Scotland Are Broken!,  teams raced across the United Kingdom to the Shetland Islands.  Scott from the Boston Firefighters badly twisted his ankle at the beginning of the leg, greatly hindering his mobility.  The Wrestlers fell behind as usual.  The Dentists smiled their way to another first place finish, and even though Gaysian lack of driving ability threatened to eliminate Tim and TeJay, Michael and Scott got worse instructions from pub patrons, and were eliminated.  Who will be eliminated. . . next?
