    Patrick could have just done a close-up of towel fibers.

    S01.E10: Best in Blow

    Deborah's installation looked like pure kitsch to me, though Janusz's was a bit underwhelming. Wished we could have seen what Alex would have done.

    S02.E01: What Have They Done?

    I can't believe the premiere left unanswered last season's huge cliffhanger: namely, if Jane ever hooked up with Tom, the Coffee Shop Guy That Maddie Thought Was Gay. For that matter, what happened to that old coffee place? What is this new coffee shanty that smells like weed? Somebody hold me.

    S17.E13: One Elle of a Day

    I wish we had seen this Bishme outfit, even though -- or perhaps because -- it reminds me that I need a new shower pouf.

    I laughed for a full minute at the judges' faces and reactions when Sebastian casually mentioned he was a ballet dancer. It's rare that you can tell that four people sitting in a row -- save older Hank Azaria the guest judge, who of course had no context -- are having exactly the same thought. You wanted a reveal, Brandon? That's a reveal. And then Nina served up this face, which I think says "flove":

    S06.E13: Medical Device Design

    There was a stray laugh from an audience member, but John didn't even comment on the absurdity of how the rating scale for Essure was set up: Excellent. Good. Fair. VERY GOOD. Poor. Yup, just like what you were taught in Stats School.

    S17.E12: The Art of Fashion

    Isn't that because fashion is by definition inconsistent? I swear someone once told me that in fashion, one day you're in, and the next day you're out.

    So much yes, regarding Jamal. I feel like our forum has not been sufficiently horrified by these exact words that came out of Jamal's mouth during a confessional: "It's hard when you have to take other people into consideration."

    But she FEELS like she hasn't used black, so that's all that matters.

    I think most of the time the real reason for their choices -- "...because I have no other ideas for a dish" -- is implied. Does Derek not know how heat works? "My custard is runny, but I'll plop it into the middle of my dough, whack that in the oven, and HOPE THE RUNNY CUSTARD WILL SOLIDIFY INTO A BALL." In other "do you hear yourself?" moments: Jess, during the ep when she won, saying, "I'm looking at these mint leaves, they're beautiful and fresh...So I'm going to dehydrate them."

    I thought this would be the least safe thing I would see in the episode... ...and then Abbey decided the best use of her 15 mins in the relay was to only do mise en place.

    S17.E09: The Stitch Is Back

    Sure, you're right to gripe about the "locker room humor." But there is a conversation going on about it being "sexual harassment" here, here, here, here, and here.

    S17.E09: The Stitch Is Back

    I agree that the show was very leery towards the models, and then towards the designers for being so thirsty. But I'm not sure the designers were sexually harassing the models, in large part because their comments were made to the camera as confessionals, or to each other. Rewatching the sequences, these are the comments and their contexts: When the models first arrive for measurements, we get the following: Sebastian talks to the camera about how "the male models, they all are gorgeous," and thus he tells himself not to look but to focus on his work; Tessa jokes to her model that she won't make his pants too tight ("because I will make the crotch ill-fitting and insane" is unspoken), followed by her confessing to the camera that she is "starved for straight males," and that the models smell good; Lela and Renee ask their model is he's comfy wearing chaps, and Lela titters in front of her model about how measuring guys is different. After the models leave, in the sewing room: Tessa talks to Sonia about how the latter's (i.e., Garo's) model smelt real good, and asks who he is; Bishme jumps in and jokes about Fedex packages, and Frankie says that they don't need anything "swinging" as the models walk. The next morning, Bishme and his mom talk about his model's butt. The models then come in for their second fitting, and: Tessa talks in a confessional about beginning to enjoy the challenge, though "maybe it's the male models in the room"; Lela blushingly tells her model that he can keep his underwear on; Renee laughs, and Lela says her bf might kill her; So based on what we're shown, Lela and Tessa did make comments to their models' faces; for the most part, the other comments were kept between the designers, or the designers and the camera. Of course, this does mean that the models did and would eventually hear the confessionals. Were the intra-designer conversations too lascivious? Probably; the sewing room conversation about dicks was the most egregious. But in all I would say, albeit with some hesitation, that the atmosphere in the workroom while the models were there was fairly professional.
