Project Runway All Stars 11/29/12--"You've Got Mail" summary

Previously on Project Runway: apparently people could submit photos for designers to use as inspiration for outfits. Kind of irritating, since I never heard about it, but maybe they only offered to USA Today readers. Laura continued to alienate everyone because she can’t talk about her past without mentioning how rich she was. Anthony Ryan made a dress that was nice, not particularly related to his picture or his “headline” about overcoming cancer. Andrae was sent home, because supposedly the judges are tired of his babbling on the runway. Instead of Josh, who made a Rainbow Brite outfit. Seriously, find a picture of his outfit and then a picture of Rainbow Brite. But Josh hasn’t gotten his redemption yet, although just letting Laura be the villain this season is going a long way.

Top Chef 11/28/12--"50s Food Flashback" summary

Previously on “Top Chef”: dumplings were made, and immunity was won by Josie. Tom and Emeril lead two teams in making Thanksgiving (probably in the middle of July). Josie undercooked the turkey, and the judges made sure to tell her she’d be going home if she hadn’t won immunity because she made her team lose. Carla made carrot soup and meatballs and won, but not before CJ and Stefan tasted her soup and pissed her off, and then Stefan called her “honey” or something and pissed her off about that. Kuniko was too helpful, doing work for others and not having enough time to cook her potatoes, and she was sent home. I think we may need to add potato gratin to the list of foods that screw people, along with panna cotta and…I’m sure there is something else on the list. (click for more)

Top Chef 11/21/12--"Tom vs. Emeril" summary

Going to be a quick fly-by recap today. Last week Kuniko poached fish in chili oil and was on top. Jeffery overcooked fish and went home. CJ, Josie, and Stefan returned to compete again, because we're copying other reality shows, apparently. (click for more)

TAR21, Recap Leg 8, 11/18/12

Welcome to Leg 8! Last time, on There’s No One Here But Us Muscovites, teams raced from Istanbul to Moscow.  Abbie and Ryan and the Beekmans found themselves stuck in Frankfurt, whereas Trey and Lexi moved out into first again.  James and Abba somehow managed to leave their passports in a Russian Cab.  When we last left our friends, we were in the middle of Leg 7.  Who will be eliminated. . . next?

Project Runway All Stars 11/15/12--"Made in the USA Today" summary

Previously on Project Runway: graffiti is now called “aerosol art” and you can make people spray paint fabric as artwork. So they did. Lots of bright colors and crazy things. Laura was rude about everyone, and no one likes her because she talks about how rich she is. (Side note: the thing she said about her high school costing more than her college? There are high schools here that cost that much, so that may be entirely true.) Ivy and Anthony Ryan did well, but Emilio won with a “denim jacket”. It was fine. Suede went home for a weird dress with cutout circles. (click for more)

Top Chef 11/14/12--"A Shock at the Space Needle" summary

Previously on “Top Chef”: Is this a thing now? Where we can’t just start a season of a reality show without having a casting special? Why is that? Anyway, at least it was smaller than last year, and also only one hipster mustache made it through. (click for more)

TAR21, Recap Leg 7, 11/11/12

Welcome to Leg 7! Last time, on It’s Nobody’s Business But the Turks, teams raced from Bangladesh to Turkey.  There was much scrubbing and serving and ice cream eating, but ultimately Rob and Kelley’s decision to take the subway instead of a taxi did them in.  Who will be eliminated. . . next?

Project Runway All Stars 11/8/12--"Up Your Aerosol" summary

Previously on Project Runway: everyone was supposed to make dresses inspired by disco. I guess because platform shoes are in? Anyway, mostly everyone made tacky stuff. Uli won, and I did like her dress but I didn’t think it was particularly disco. Wendy Pepper went home, because she made some cheap looking stuff that had bell bottoms. I guess that was all that was disco about it? There was some other heinous stuff up there but whatever. (click for more)

Previously on “Top Chef”: There was a very long season full of obnoxious people and really no one to root for except a former pothead. I mean really. (click for more)

TAR21, Recap Leg 6, 11/4/12

Welcome to Leg 6! Last time, on Dhaka and Dhaka Again, teams continued racing through Bangladesh.  The Twins spar with Abbie and Ryan, Brent succumbs to the heat, and the Chippendales screw up, but it’s Josh and Brent who end up in last place on the first non-elimination leg, and will face a Speed Bump on this leg.  Who will be eliminated. . . next?

Project Runway All Stars 11/1/12--"Put On Your Dancing Shoes" summary

Previously on Project Runway: some people decided to be on TV again. We started with a team challenge, just to get that out of the way, and everyone had to make collections based on “attitude”. Really you couldn’t tell them apart. Everyone was nice (for now). Anthony Ryan won, which was nice for him, and Peach couldn’t marry her tennis clothing to the collection so she went home.
