Bravo's new fashion design series, Launch My Line

The gimmick here goes a little like this. There are a bunch of people who do important stuff--Celebrity DJ's! Architects! Sword Swallowers! Lou Rawls' daughter! They each want to become fashion designers. Bravo has paired them up with some sort of "fashion experts," and, as a team, they are designing an entire line, one piece at a time, across the twelve week run of the show.

It's not Project Runway in any way, shape or form. Check out these two fellows above, Dan and Dave or Derrick or Dean, also known as DSquared, twin brothers who finish each other's sentences in odd little cartoon voices. They reminded me of the Goofy Gophers from the Warner Brothers cartoons. Remember them? Not Chip and Dale. They spoke with English accents and were painfully polite, always saying things, like "After you," "No, after you," while they were stealing radishes and whacking doggies with sledgehammers. These two are delightful to watch.

Not sure how the series is going to play out, but there will certainly be many an opportunity for drama! Check out this guy. Wacky hat dandy dude. Sometimes, when it's cold outside, you just need some unadulterated trash TV that you don't have to apologize for. This may be just the thing. The television equivalent of instant hot chocolate with dehydrated marshmallows. Yum.
