Ohhhhhh, kittens and poodles and darlings and precious unborn fawns all, The T LOunge is once again, at long last OPEN, Y’ALL! If you’re new here, this is our Project Runway viewing tradition; we all imaginary-go to a fabulous bar somewhere in the world, get drunk, and watch Project Runway, shouting out our thoughts in the comments section. Grand fun, high drama, and casual sex amongst the gays during the commercial breaks; if you haven’t been, you’ll LOVE it.
And in grand T LOunge fashion:
The Ladies Lounge at The G Hotel in Ireland
Think Pink, darlings! What better than every queen’s old favorite, The Ladies Lounge. For isn’t every T LOunge a ladies lounge, ladies?
Also in grand T Lounge fashion, we saw the first episode already and you didn’t; a little tradition we call our Neener-Neener Screener.
Don’t ask us to give a second of the proceedings away ahead of time, darlings, but we can tell you it was a really fun, energetic episode with a pretty great challenge and some damn fine on-point judging. The first ten minutes are completely different from any season opener before, but after we got over how jarring it was, we considered it a great way to get to know the contestants as well as potentially providing an awful lot of… well, we’ll get to that in our recap tomorrow.
For those worried about the talent level, we’ll say there were more than enough entries that could have been in the top 3 and leave it at that for now. Also, the cast is mostly fun at this point. You can guess where the tension’s going to come from, but no one was out of line or over the top for this challenge.
Christina Ricci was a very good judge and Heidi looked stunning when she came out for the runway show. Y’know, she really should wear more gowns on this show.
For now, your directive is to drink. If you’re imaginary driving, then only drink imaginary non-alcoholic drinks, darlings. If your imaginary chauffeur is parked outside ready to carry you out to the car by the time Heidi says “I’m sorry, but that means you’re out,” well then, get imaginary busy, bitch!
What’s on the menu for tonight? We’ll have our usual of wine and pizza for the premiere.
Remember: The Road to the Runway casting special is on at 8/7c and Project Runway immediately follows it at 9/8c, so pace yourselves, darlings!
