    Nice responses so far! Initially, I was really curious to see what the idealists' reactions were to the entire concept of the show/the show itself. I for one, ABSOLUTELY cannot stand being told to either act or dress a certain way. I just wanna be ME! ;P

    After I watched one episode I got a little annoyed by both of the hosts for their demeaning mentality (Stacy especially, I dislike her fashion sense- it's drab for my taste/she looks too corporate for me). Plus, I find it a little obnoxious for people to degrade others just because they choose to dress/act differently (especially from a brainwashing medium like television). It's like the entire show thrives on conformity, a black/white authoritarian mentality, which in a sense, being an "NF" myself, I am TOTALLY rebellious of.

    One positive thing that I do like about the series is that it does actually help those who really want to seek out fashion advice. (Besides that the clothes are free, paid for the by the network, I think). I saw the original hosts from the British version. They seem playfully charming/much more charismatic (they dress pretty). They actually were funny. I liked them.

    I'm for people being just themselves. In reality, if we were to tell people they can/can't dress a certain way that best expresses who they are, then they would just live a lie their entire lives, feeling not good enough, listening to others, not themselves. Be comfortable. So long as people are mindful in how they dress like when around elders/young children/their own siblings, they can dress whichever way they please. I say, "Live and let live!"
    AMEN, I mean WTF?!?!?! Why do wanna give someone else control over my damned style, body, etc.? Okay, if a friend or family gives me a nice tip and says, "Hey, that looks really nice." or "why don't you try this" That's cool. But some A-hole on the TV telling me "Hey, that looks like crap." or "Dude, you need a makeover because you look like s*it" Nahhh. No way.

    And then do you notice??? They buy this crap that looks like what my dog gets rid of after eating five pounds of potato salad and it all costs like Five BILLION dollars. So everyone who looks like the woman says, "DAMN, I need to get that!!!" So it's all a big - drumroll - ADVERTISING SHOW. And people actually accept this. And like it. And get addicted to it.

    And then my family starts in and says, "You should go on the show. You should watch it. Then you would know how to dress." And I tell them, "Up yours, I'm wearing what I want." GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR R!!!

    Crazy consumer farts!!!

    Okay, I don't REALLY say that to my family. I say, "No I would rather not watch it. Not my thing." I'm thinking, "STFU!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

    So, yeah. No.

    DISLIKE. With capital letters.

    I love WNTW! I don't watch it religiously, just during the marathons sometimes. Clintons my favorite between the two hosts. Some people on the show actually aren't that bad but there are some horror stories from that show. Like that one girl who hadn't washed/combed her hair in over 10 years and had dreads (not the pretty kind either, but the really thick and ratty kind) that weighed nearly 2 pounds after being cut. Ew.

    If you want news, go online or listen to the radio. See. No TV necessary.

    And then you don't have to pay the German tax for TV. Muahhahahahahaha.


    I love my tv, and I am proud to have my mind rot so I can watch it *hugs tv set* I don't watch it 24 hours but, I will never give it up NEVAR!!! except maybe if I go both blind and deaf.
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so

    I've watched it a couple of times. At first I really hated the show because I saw Stacey and Clinton teasing and putting the person down because of what they wear(they probably need to act like that to make the show entertaining). The reason being I didn't think clothes matter that much and they should wear what they waaant. But after watching a few more, I saw how some people were actually happy and learned from the experience towards the end. Sooo I guess it's not all baaad. My favorite part is the end! where you see their whole transformation o.O it's like Whoaoaaa! but as for me, I wouldn't want to be on that show everrr lol.. I'd probably be on the verge of tears :P if they kept making fun of me like that ahh. Sometimes when I watch the show.. and see how Stacey and Clinton tease the person I feel so bad for themm because they seem so embarrassed. Imagine that happening to you o.O being caught on national television about how bad you dress lol.

Dude, like, I, well, like, totallyyyyyy wanted to buy, this, like, dreeeeeeeess at this, like, oh whaddyacallit, oh, yeah, stoooooooooore, but like my motheeeeeeer totalllyyyyyyyy like, well, like, wouldn't like, give me the moneeeeeeey, so I, like, well, like had to like, beeeeeeg and say, yeah, like gimme the moneeeeey, so she, like, gave it to meee, and now I have, like, a, like, five hundred dollar dreeeeees, so I can, like, totally, like, go to this, like, wiked cool, like, party, and get like, totallyyyyyy, like, sloshed, and like, laid, and like, well, like, well, like, you knowwwwwwwwwwww

    Oh, but, like, DUDE, I have to like, totally, like see this, like, showwwwwwwwwwwwwww, because like, they, like, totally tell you, like how to dreeeees, and all like, the coolest, like, stuuuuuuuufff, you can, like, weeeeeear, and I like, totally, like, have to, like, listen, because I'm a like, dumb blonde and like, proud of iiiiiiiiiiit, so, like, I have to listen to like, those, like, cool, like NY fashionnnnnnn peopleeeeeeeeee, because like they are like so like well like cooooool and like the people like wear all this like shiny stuff that like totally like well sparkles and all thattttttt.

    They are stupid, materialistic, consumeristic, crazy, outlandish, obnoxious, irritating, aggravating, imposing farts, and they convince and persuade people. But other than that, the show is great.

    Sure, don't go around in a potato sack - that's clear. But man we are not 12 years old anymore, and we don't need some guy in Gorgio Armani telling us to spend 10 thousand dollars on a wardrobe from people that support his show. :steam:

    But, okay, if it provides good entertainment, more power to ya. Then you can support his multi-million dollar show. Meanwhile, I will sit back with my modest but comfy and decent looking clothes from H&M and Zero and sit with a contented look on my face that I didn't fall for such nonsensical gibberish.

    I KNOW what you guys mean.. I seriously wanted punch to her FACE after I watched that show. Why ridicule/give fashion advice when she needs some herself? Just my personal opinion.. I don't think her taste in clothes looks all that great. Then again, the people who volunteer to go on those shows do get to go on a shopping spree. =)
