I haven't seen it yet. I will see if they have past episodes on Netflix.

The only thing I liked about Craft Wars was when Cheryl Darrow won. She is so amazingly talented. Check her out at Ten Second Studio.

I need a middle option. While I don't LOVE the show, I LOVE that it exists. Two of my friends appeared and I LOVED that. I LOVE that crafting is so popular right now. I don't especially love the challenges or the judging, but neither keeps me from watching. The only thing I truly HATE is the ridiculous voice-overs/dubbing.

The first season is over. It was planned as an 8 (I think) episode summer fill, with the possibility of returning in the future.

Ugh, I hated it. I watched maybe 3 episodes and then took it off my DVR's schedule. I think the challenges are ridiculous, the dubbing is irritating, and the judges drove me nuts with the hypocritical statements (I also didn't agree with most of their opinions, so that didn't help! LOL).

I actually like Tori on her reality show but hated her on this. That bright red lipstick was horrible. Yes, the voiceovers and judges reading from a script was very distracting and I felt contestants were reading too. But I did like that they featured men as well as women.

Well, I didn't hate it, but it was no Honey Boo Boo either.

I only watched the first couple episodes and I really didn't like it.
I didn't like the way the show was laid out and I didn't like the type of "crafts" they had the contestants doing....
I imagine a craft show as making smaller, craft projects.....I have no interest in watching people compete to make a playhouse or patio furniture....

Absolutely hated the show. That was not crafting and felt embarrassed for the contestants and hope they didn't want a future job in the carfting bussiness after that.

The judges were constantly mean on purpose! They and tori were horrible to people. Crafting is an art and their way of doing things isn't the only way.

Thank goodness the season is over and sadly I hope this show doesn't come back for a second season!

Sorry.

You should find our craft wars previous posts. Those were hilarious!

OMG HOw did I forget that! Constantly you could tell that they edited over things and added words that that hadn't been said at the time of filming. And they did a horroble job at that cause you could so tell!

I watched 4 episodes. Friends of mine were in two of them. I loved watching their shows, but really could have passed on the rest. One thing I found annoying was how they give you upcoming clips before the commercial, then repeat the clips post-commercial, and then finally show everything. A-N-N-O-Y-I-N-G. A lot of reality shows do that, though.

I liked the snark-fests on here. We don't get the show, so it was fun reading people's opinions "live" so to speak.

Saw about 5 minutes of it... that was all I could stand. The wreaths they were making were horrid.

I didn't really hate it but didn't like it either. The one hour I wasted on this show they made playhouses out of school supplies. It didn't hold my interest enough to tune in for another episode.
