Strong Show, Makes Design Interesting!
24 July 2006 | by (Detroit, MI) – See all my reviews

I am not a fan of design shows (paint-dry TV), and I am very picky about my reality competition shows, but this one seems to be good for fans of either type of show. Good drama, good design, great host and judges (Clive especially is engaging and funny, without trying too hard).

This seems like it could be better than Project Runway, since there is much more going on than just sitting in a room and sewing a dress! Design is much more active.

Very nice effort all around, and I can't wait to see more. These shows always get better as you move along and get to know the characters.
