    The new Under The Gunn--a Project Runway imitation with Gunn in the head judge’s chair--merely has the feel of lifeboats being lowered.

    The coach-team setup give the show a slight Voice vibe, but the whole thing feels flat. [10 Feb 2014, p.50]

    I have been a fan of Project Runway from the get go.....but I didn't like to see how Tim Gunn slyly shows his favorites. I want the old Project runway to come back. Under The Gunn is very boring. Tonight's episode just sealed the deal fro me setting the D.V.R for this anymore. Contestant designers show their character flaws because they don't realize yet how their behavior is presented. Tim tonight treated the designer that ended up going home "Natalia" with unprofessional disrespect. He should get his blood pressure checked and add a happy pill to the go with it. He could hardly even get his fake adieu well wishes out of his mouth correctly = which means they were not sincere. I think Asha should have gone home. Just cancel the show or do some major revamping without Tim Gunn. Full Review »

    I love Tim Gunn, but the first two episodes were agonizing to wait until they selected teams. I am not at all interested. Also the poor designers had no say to develop themselves because the mentors were inflicting their style on them. They are to assist, not to have the designers do their style. Let them alone and provide "guidance". I felt Tim had no backbone with the mentors. He should have stopped Nick in his tracks. Mondo is too overbearing. Anya ... well, it is really a badly designed show. Having the judges pass the buck to who goes home because they don't really want to make the decision is not good also. It is a filler waiting for Project Runway. Frankly, I don't think this system worked well enough. Give those designers some room to breathe. Natalie was afraid to do it herself because she was held by the hand earlier. This entire show was not up to Project Runway standards. I love Tim Gunn and he is the main reason I watched it, but the whole concept needs a great deal of tweaking. And please, don't have us go through 2 weeks of picking teams ever again. That was soooooooooooo painful. Who cares. Get on with it. Judges, do your job and judge. It is not a popularity concept. And Tim... control your mentors. Give the Designers some room to do what they do best ... fail or not... let them design. Full Review »

    Everything about the show feels prearranged. The whole idea of having Anya as a mentor is a joke but Nick Verreos seems very precious and full of himself every episode.

    and the biggest problem is Tim Gunn seems very insincere. Project Runway has its set of problems, but it has never been concerned with the looks of the cast as much as Under the Gunn is. A very weak show and certainly poorest production Tim Gunn has ever been a part of.
