Tim Gunn's Guide to What Not to Wear
So, judging by the highly scientific poll here, a slight majority of you love Mr. Gunn, but didn't much care for his new show. That's exactly how I felt myself. I have to admit that I was disappointed with it, but I can't say that I was all that surprised at being disappointed either.
I sort of had a feeling it might not be that great, not awful, but not great.
I do love Veronica Webb, always have, so that's a nice plus, but I can't say I'll be rushing home to watch the next episode.
I really didn't care for that first contestant either. She was far too fawning for my tastes. I like a little feistiness in my makeover contestants, a little fire in
the belly. I like to see Stacy and Clinton brow-beat and wrestle a feisty one into submission.
Well, I used to.
Now, I'm just kind of over it all, you know.
And that whole bit of Tim's presenting the husband with the purchased ring stuck in my craw (and an ICE.COM (tm) diamond ring stuck in the craw is not fun, lemme tell you)
Anyway, I'm not sure the world needs another makeover show, not that I have even the vaguest idea of how to package Tim Gunn and his dazzling silver charm into a tv
Maybe have him dress up in little outfits and give vocabulary lessons?
That I might actually rush home to see.
