  • Nothing spectacular about this show, but it uses Bravo's proven formula for competition reality shows, and it works...even on a show like this.

    Shear Genius may not be the best of Bravo's reality competition shows, but it surly isn't a steaming pile of crap. It is worth a watch for anyone who is a fan of Project Runway, Top Chef, or Top Design. Jacqueline Smith was a great choice for a host, and the same goes for Sally Hershberger as the head judge (c'mon she INVENTED Meg Ryan's signature haircut!). Now for Bravo's 4th try with this formula, it is getting a little old, but with Project Runway not coming back for a while (DAMN YOU TIM GUNN) we have to have some kind of Bravo entertainment to keep us in our seats and on the channel. But overall this show is not that great, but it is still worth it to watch at least on episode to give it a shot. My not be a Project Runway, but it is still entertaining, even if it is in a watered down way.moreless
  • Another multi million dollar waste of time. This brain spasm continues.

    This hour of torture starts off with the contestants having to do a shag cut. The bottom 3 looked identical and one of them had to go. I did not see the difference in the 3 but then OK, one less to watch.

    Then the main event, cutting and styling with what was on the table. They missed a few items, a Swiss Army knife the one with the mini scissors, a toe nail clipper, a pinking shears, a tin snips, and bayonette. Who came up with this horrid idea for a challenge let alone a show?

    What is next week, doing hair with power tools? It is bad enough that they think doing hair is interesting, but doing hair with these items is beyond belief. Who in their right mind would be thinking about having their hair done and when the hair dresser shows up with kiddie scissors or a hedge clipper or something similarly insane, would you get their hair done. This whole episode is utterly beyond words. The only good thing is Miss Hedge Clipper won the challenge, and one of the young snotty contestants went home. If they are leaving 2 per show this show will only run a short time and hopefully only one season.

    What type of show can we expect next from Bravo, Redneck beer drinking, cooking with roadkill, or the even more difficult show to ever show, good ideas from Bravo.

    The show with Jonathan was watchable, this show is not.moreless
