The hip series Project Runway is a pop culture sensation. International supermodel Heidi Klum returns as host, heading a glamorous panel of celebrities and fashion icons in search of the next star fashion designer. The fourth season of Project Runway returns with another group of telegenic contestants intent on winning the $100,000 cash prize and the chance to jumpstart their careers as fashion designers. The 15 competitors include sensitive Ricky Lizdale, earth mama Kathleen Vaughn, and impishly adorable Christian Siriano. Thanks to his quirky looks, hip designs, and popular catchphrases ("fierce," "ferosh," "hot tranny mess"), Siriano became such a pop culture sensation that he was parodied by Amy Poehler on Saturday Night Live. Though it is full of drama and its share of cat fighting, Project Runway has always been a step above your run-of-the-mill reality series. Whereas The Hills relies on a coterie of frenemies to ramp up its ratings, Project Runway actually seems interested in the contestants and how they will succeed in life beyond the series. Hosted by supermodel Heidi Klum, who exhibits a wry sense of humor while keeping the show moving at a brisk pace, the series is smartly entertaining. Fan favorite Tim Gunn returns, as does judge Nina Garcia. This season's guest stars include fashionista Sarah Jessica Parker, who helps critique the contestants' creations for her affordable Bitten line. But former football pro Tiki Barber is a scene stealer, appearing in an episode where the competitors have to design an outfit for him to wear on television. (Some of the pieces that the cast comes up with challenge the notion that Barber looks good in anything.) All 13 episodes from the Bravo series are included in this four-disc set. By the time Klum says auf wiedersehen to the runner up, most viewers will agree that the right contestant won. --Jae-Ha Kim

Who in their right minds would try to drive through the Kalahari Desert in 20-year-old bangers? Or cross the English Channel in amphibious cars? You guessed it: Top Gear's intrepid and wonderfully entertaining hosts, Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May. Buckle up for exciting road tests on the International Emmy®-Award winning series, including thrilling rides in the Porsche 911 GT3 RS, Lambo Gallardo Superleggera and Aston Vantage N24. Power test the world's most exotic supercars. And join The Stig on training laps with the rich and famous. Includes The Botswana Special. Special Features: English Subtitles for the Deaf and Hearing Impaired Interviews Calling Top Gear "a car show" is like describing the Titanic as "a big boat" or Dom Perignon as "sparkling wine"--not inaccurate, just inadequate. Oh, motorheads (especially those fixated on fantastically fast, expensive autos) will surely get their fix from the ten episodes (on three discs) collected here from the British program’s tenth season. But Top Gear’s reach is much broader than that; more than merely informative, it’s funny, thrilling, smart, and just plain entertaining enough to appeal to viewers of all persuasions. That’s due to a variety of factors. The three hosts (or "presenters," as the Brits call them), James May, Richard Hammond, and Jeremy Clarkson, are knowledgeable and witty--especially Clarkson, who, although a bit of a snob, has a gift for droll turns of phrase (driving the Audi R8 "supercar," he says, "is like smearing honey into Keira Knightley," while the more humble Honda Civic is "eager, urgent… like a penshioner’s terrier"). From a technical standpoint, it’s excellent; the camera work and production values are first-rate, and the show is filled with beautiful shots and judiciously chosen effects work. Most important, the actual content is compulsively watchable. A typical 50-minute episode will include a hands-on review of an automobile, be it some fabulous rich man’s toy (an Aston-Martin roadster, say, or a s...

Bravo heads to the Garden State to follow the five most Jersey of all Jersey Girls as they live lavish lifestyles and deal with all the drama that money can buy. The hair is big, but the drama is bigger in THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF NEW JERSEY. For the first time in Real Housewives history, the ladies are more than just friends joining the cast are two sisters, who are married to two brothers and one sister-in-law, bringing a whole new level of familial drama to the table. While family remains a priority for each of these women, their shopping, decorating, dating and even fighting are all over-the-top.From their wild weekend in Atlantic City to the infamous table flip, watch every episode of THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF NEW JERSEY: THE COMPLETE SEASON ONE including the two Watch What Happens episodes, The Lost Footage and the Director s Cut of the season finale, all of 3 DVDs. The conceit of Bravo's The Real Housewives franchise is to showcase women who make the fictional characters on ABC's Desperate Housewives seem like amateurs. And in that sense, The Real Housewives of New Jersey is successful. The women certainly are colorful, but as interesting? No. Still, it's easy to see why this series is popular. The women are pretty enough, plenty catty, and some are even downright diabolical. They're kind of what Heidi from The Hills might grow up to become 10 or 15 years down the line. Every reality series has to have a villain, and the first season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey has one in brassy Danielle. While she may not stick her boogery finger in a jar of communal peanut butter (as did Puck on The Real World: San Francisco), Danielle is an instigator. Many of her alleged actions are chronicled in a book written by her ex-husband. Is she a drug addict? Was she a hooker in the past? Does she have a history of altercations with the police? (Her ex is a police officer.) The truth is less important than the way she--and the rest of the housewives--deal with the accusations on the show. There are histrionics, table turni...
