Flashback Friday-Project Runway (2004-Present)

For some, the ultimate professional dream is to have their own successful clothing line.

In 2004, Project Runway premiered on Bravo before moving to Lifetime and then returning to Bravo. Combining the dreams of up and coming fashion designers with the format of a reality show competition, the end goal of the contestants was to win the show and run their own clothing line. Guided by Tim Gunn, the contestants were judged by supermodel and host Heidi Klum, fashion designer Michael Kors and Elle creative director Nina Garcia. Filmed in New York City, the contestants are often given out of the box challenges and every episode, they are judged by a celebrity guest in addition to the regular judges.

While Project Runway has all of the hallmarks of a standard reality competition program, it stands out because the contestants have an opportunity for real world success.

I recommend it.

Jeff Sessions Finally Grows A Pair

The job of the Attorney General Of The United States is supposed to be an apolitical decision. While he or she is appointed by the President, their job is to enforce the laws of this country. Their job is not to use the justice system to go after the President’s opponents, regardless of whether these opponents are real or just in the mind of the President.

You know who hasn’t gotten that concept through his thick, orange skull.

After months of abuse on Twitter, Jeff Sessions couldn’t take it anymore. His response to you know who is as follows:

Sessions hit back, saying in a rare statement, “While I am Attorney General, the actions of the Department of Justice will not be improperly influenced by political considerations. I took control of the Department of Justice the day I was sworn in, which is why we have had unprecedented success at effectuating the President’s agenda”.

It’s nice to see that Jeff Sessions finally grew a pair. What you know who has never understood about the role of the President is that he is not just the CEO of America. America is not a private corporation that can be bought and/or sold when changes in business occur.  He is a public servant who is beholden to the country and the voting public. Until he figures that out, he will never be the President that he thinks he is.

Flashback Friday-House Hunters (1999-Present)

Searching for a new home is not easy. There are considerations of cost, location, travel time to work and school, etc.

Since 1999, House Hunters on HGTV has followed renters and homeowners as they go on the search for a new home. In each episode, the person or couple who is the focus of the show is presented with three options as a potential new home. By the end of the episode, they must make a decision as to which home fits their needs.

 

While House Hunters falls into the reality show category, it isn’t as insidious or mind numbing as other reality shows. Not only is it a show that the entire family can watch together, but the journey to find a new home is one that we all can relate to.

I recommend it.
