    No to the teams all season long. But, maybe a team will be eliminated each week. I still smell disaster.

    Zac Pozen is a more "modern" designer than Kors so this should be interesting.

    We might have to use more artifices here at the forum to keep watching the show. Perhaps a weekly challenge, a drinking game, snarky recaps, etc? The show alone doesn't sound like it will keep us entertained.

    The news I saw had Teams all season long but I imagine they will break that for the final runway collection for the finale. I hope so anyway. MK is my favorite judge so I will be a bit sad that he will be missing but I did like ZP for the challenges that he guest judged on in prior seasons.

    I can't recall a team challenge I actually liked, and now they're doing a whole season of them? Ugh. PR has become less and less interesting since it moved to Lifetime, and the team concept strikes me as a really bad idea. Kind of like the dreadful "family" season of AR.

    Here's the write-up EW magazine wrote in their "What To Watch" section - Oscar edition (Jan 25 & Feb 1 - special double issue)

    The decision to fill this season with team challenges has fans up in arms. Nobody likes forced collaboration because it prevents designers from going after their own unique vision. Luckily, the contestants are judged individually and each team's work doesn't have to be cohesive, so it's not a drastic shake-up. The bigger change: Michael Kors is out and Zac Posen is in, meaning a noticeable decrease in catty one-liners. But there's still fun to be had - try drinking every time a contestant say some variation of "I am not a team player".

    So if they are judged individually and the work doesn't have to be cohesive, why have teams? What point it there? Would love to know what is different or what it adds.

    It's yet another way that the producers can secretly play with results and save bad designers because they are good television.

    Apparently Tim Gunn was a big proponent of this twist -- I doubt he realized these unintended consequences.
