(S07E12) The contestants have finally reached the final challenge on 'Project Runway' before the final collection. The final dress has to be a high end dress inspired by performances from Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey. They had two days and $300 to create the best dress they could.
One effect that was used really well this episode was the montage of outfits the contestants used during judging. It made you realize that you went through twelve episodes already. Granted, they skipped several of the dud outfits, but it does show that people like Seth Aaron and Mila have a strong point of view.
For a change, these two that are normally so in sync had to deal with an internal challenge, as opposed to the physical constraints that are inherent because Ned cannot touch Chuck lest he lose her forever. Ned had to accept that Chuck was living next door -- in Olive's apartment -- and happy about it.
So, perhaps it was appropriate this episode revisited the very carnival of the first episode, the carnival after which J.J. was conceived. It was also very fitting that some of the revelations of this episode took place in such a setting.
If you coated a Care Bear in honey and sugar you might end up with something as sickeningly sweet as Kissyfur, a cartoon which aired Saturday mornings on NBC during the 1986-87 season. Somewhat (but not really) like Walt Kelly's Pogo comic strip, the show focused on a group of animals living in a swamp and having crazy adventures while trying to protect themselves from danger, including a group of crocodiles who were always trying to eat the young cubs. "Kissyfur" was a young bear cub who escaped from the circus to live in the swamp. This is all explained in the opening credit sequence, which you can view here.
Despite my somewhat sarcastic first sentence, I actually loved this show as a kid, even if it did sometimes pile on the sentimentality a little thick. I suppose that's unavoidable when your main character is named "Kissyfur" for crying out loud. Still, it's probably that name which caused this cartoon to stick in so many people's heads. Also, save for early morning preschool programming, I don't know if cartoons like this still exist that so openly embrace concepts like love, trust, and family. I guess being cheesy isn't always so bad.
