Project Runway Junior  
Is anyone watching Project Runway Junior?

I started watching, expecting to hate it. Threads was vile. But these teens are actually kind of talented and not obnoxious at all. And watching Tim with them is fun. They're excited to be doing what they are doing, and Tim is feeding off their excitement. The show is actually enjoyable, at least for me. I'd almost say it is better than the last regular season.

I watched the PR w Siriano in it, was it PR Threads? Sooo bad that I never wanna know it again.
Junior has Tim in it? Guess, I'll try, I jsut a bit skeptical w Junior, like are they really that genius or are the jugdes goign to be honest in giving opinion regardless of junior if not it would look like half-assed show just to fill some time.

I feel like the judges are toned back a bit but still honest. They just aren't outright mean the way they would be with adults. And the designers are teens rather than young kids, which helps it not be so obnoxious. I don't know. I'm enjoying it so far. I felt like there was so little drive in last seasons contestants, and while these designers are teens they seem to really want this. Their eagerness is infectious.

I'm watching, but usually not until the next day or two (On Demand) after it airs, 'cause I'm usually asleep or on my way to bed by air-time. The kids are talented and really want to win it; they're not already-established designers looking for Cash and Stuff to enhance their already-existing businesses. It reminds me of some of the earlier (still on Bravo) seasons in a way.

It's actually made me enjoy PRun again. The kids are eager and hardworking, dedicated and passionate about the craft. Christian Siriano is excellently bitchy as the lead judge and I like Kelly Osbourne and the other woman as well. The host is vacuous, but whatever. The kids are bubbly and almost too earnest, but it's infectious and it's been amazing to see what they produce.

I agree with all of this. The kid's excitement reminds me of the early seasons of Project Runway. As much as I love Tim Gunn and would watch him do anything, the past few seasons have just been so lackluster in terms of the designers.
