Welcome to a super-fast recap of this week’s Project Runway. As the maybe-temporary title suggests, this is a new, quick, quippy recap format in which I’ll review episodes I’ve watched but don’t lend themselves to full essay-style recaps. Inspired by a conversation with several of you on Facebook, these may take different forms, from lists like this to a single image or clip; I’m going to experiment and play with them. Your feedback is welcome, as always.

Level of unjustified bitchiness toward Sandhya, on a scale of 0 to Korina

Why we love Tim Gunn
“This is nothing if not the season of the vagina.”

Why we love Tim Gunn, part two
He managed to deliver an ad for a Samsung brand curved telescreen without making it seem icky.

Worst part of the stupidly large on-screen polls
“Is Fade starting to lose it?” while Fade was losing it.

Unbelievable thing producers asked the cast to do
Shill for a product-placed fridge. Again.

Zac Posen hair oiliness level, on a scale of dry to Crisco

Most impressive dress on the rainway (get it? a runway with rain)
Sean, with Kini as a close runner-up. But that color-bleeding dress was spec-fucking-tacular.

Thing Fade’s t-shirt should say next
