Much better than Season 1
I'm not sure why some people like Season 1 better - last season just seemed like a wannabe Top Chef and Project Runway. This season the talent pool is higher. I'm not surprised they nixed "See ya later decorator" either - it was HIGHLY criticized by most fans. Having India explain (in her gorgeous accent) the challenges was also a smart idea since Todd Oldham really struggled last time around. Since Todd is still acting as the Tim Gunn role on the show, I don't feel like he has been demoted in any way. Looking forward to this season!!
so-so season premiere
The season premiere had a number of good elements to it, on the technical side mostly. India Hicks was no fun as a host -- any one of the other judges would've made a better host. I loved one of the contestants, though -- Wisit, the fashion-designer-slash-opera-singer who somehow seems to be the only interesting enough person on the line-up. Go Wisit!
missing "see ya later, decorator..."
a good show - there was talk there wouldn't even be a second season, so i was glad to see it... still some of the warmth and quirkiness was missing - more Jonathan Adler, Less India Hicks...
