Project Runway strutters get pretty tame spin-off.

Is It Any Good?

Models isn't must-see television, but Runway fans will likely stick around for the extra half-hour to watch it, if for no other reason than it gives them a chance to see more of Heidi Klum -- and the often "dramatic" model selection rounds in which the Runway designers choose who they want to work with the following week.

The show is as slickly produced as Runway and gives off the same hip vibe. But while Runway lets viewers watch designers sew their creations from start to finish -- a typically fascinating process that makes it clear how much skill is involved in making clothes -- Models lets us watch, well, models ... who basically walk down the runway and back. They have their own distinct personalities, yes. And most have far more going on for them than their looks. But the truth is, they don't really do much.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
