Unfortunately, I think they've taken the glamour and art out of the shoots. Crazy makeup does not equal model.
I have to agree with y'all, its very "extreme modelling" with overdone makeup, over the top photo scenarios (what's next, hangliding?), too edgy, too avant garde. I'd also like to see more of the actual modelling shoots, and not just the girls who bomb, but of the girls who do well, too. (But that presupposes there's more good stuff to see than what we actually have seen.) Although they didn't show much of each individual go-see, I really liked how much of the last show they actually devoted to covering the go-sees, as opposed to interpersonal drama.

I would like to see more of the shoot's results than just "your best shot". There have to be several great shots in each session for each girl. We only get to see one and who determines it is the "best" one? As for the extreme wackiness of the photo sessions, I believe the staff is looking for who can follow directions and project well under any circumstance. Some things can be taught but other things have to be inborn.
Ah-hah Milay, methinks we have the same thoughtwaves. It seems shorter to me too. More ads? Too many girls? Bad editing? I'd like to see more photos, and just for them to hold the camera on the photos we Do see for more than a split second. Less teary phone calls. Bored with teary phone calls. More photos, more learning, more fashion (and fashion people). Season one was a suprise ratings winner because it worked. If it ain't broke, don't mess with it!!
I don't think the episodes are shorter by more than five minutes, but one thing I never realized until recently is that the panel takes up a full 25% of each episode.
A rough breakdown of the formula:
25% Photo shoot
25% Miscellaneous activities (training, challenges, Tyra talks, etc.)
Also, I never realized until Yaya said "I've been modeling for three weeks" that each forty minute episode is about 3.5 days of real time. Somehow, I was always under the impression that one episode equaled one week. They actually move at a pretty fast pace; I can see why the girls get so stressed and tired.

Please, tell me those aren't real.
God Bless Alexander McQueen and his... interesting ideas.
