Started last week (8th Oct). I managed to watch the first two episodes last night.

Anyone else watching?

Is it the same mentor? Any other news?

Will have to put DH on the hunt for the episodes -- love PR Australia -- I kept hoping there would be another season.

Thanks for the notice.

I'll be back to this thread once I get to watch the episodes.

Same mentor, same host.

A couple of differences so far this series. One is that they are not going to have any "immunity", and the second is that any person who wins three of the weekly challenges automatically gets a spot in the final.

That last one could make things really interesting -- I also like the "no immunity" idea.

Haven't watched them yet but I have both episodes -- just have to get through prep for tomorrow's Fitness Convention.

Thanks for the info.

We have watched the first two episodes. There were a couple twists in them that I will not give away.

I really wish the companies that produce these shows would realize that their market is far beyond their borders and make it much easier to find and watch the programs.

I live barely the other side of the Canada US border and cannot watch the US Project Runway on local TV. I wish we were back in the day of TV antennas and I could pick up the US broadcast of programs easily. That was back in the 60's through 80's. Now we have cable with 100's of channels, but I cannot pick up what I want to watch.

I'll have to ask DH -- he's the super sleuther when it comes to computer related stuff.

MichelleT -- do you get Lifetime -- it's a new addition to our tv line-up here and it is carrying the current season of Runway.

Episode 3 raised a couple of interesting questions.

What is the difference between a blouse and a shirt? Is the difference worth getting worked up about? Do shirts have to be made of cotton? Is Savva nuts?

I think the judges and I were on different wavelengths. I couldn't believe they praised the big-bow-blouse and skort combo. I would not wear that blouse, despite the fact that they said any woman would want to.

I didn't much like the winning shirt/blouse, either. The blouse shown on the Witchery website here doesn't look much like the winning look on the show. It has sold out so they don't have the price listed that I could find. If you click through the main images on that page, the last one is a 2-minute "behind the scenes" video on the episode.

Anyone else seen this episode yet?

The blouse was selling for AUD129.99.

Savvy is annoying and editing for storyline is intrusive.

I'm watching too and thoroughly enjoying it, even if Savva is nuts! Can't wait for tonight's episode.
