Critic Reviews for Blown Away Season 2

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (1)

Admittedly it is sometimes reduced to sound-bite-length snippets of action, but you can't help but be awed by the phenomenal amount of skill and dexterity involved. We're talking molten glass here, people, not three-ways-to-cook-an-egg.

Feb 16, 2021 | Full Review…

Blown Away has not changed significantly in season two, which is both a relief and, honestly, a bit of a disappointment.

Audience Reviews for Blown Away: Season 2

    Judges are completely biased and Chris should have been eliminated at episode 3, episode 8 made it quite eminent that the show is corrupt!

    Some details of this show are wonderful to watch. The prompts given, and the way the artist execute their ideas, is a really good way to show how creative and diverse glass blowing can be. The problem that I, and many others seem to have, is with one of the judges, Kathrine Gray. Her arrogance within the first episode of season 2, almost made me turn the show off. I haven't finished the season and I'm considering not, she is that much of annoyance. When you think of a good host for this show, you might think someone who is open to creative ideas that speak to the artist themselves, and how they execute their own ideas and creativity. Not a host that will be ignorant and opinionated because they don't personally like certain styles of art like cartoons. A good judge would not sabotage the entire show and competition trying to shape everything to their personal ideas of what they like. Jude by the execution of the idea, not with a closed minded and completely opinionated headspace. I understand she is a judge, she is supposed to judge. But there is a big difference in proper evaluation vs what she does; which is stuffing contestants creativity into a box, and shaping it how she wants. Also, the way she judges contestants in a personal sense is also ridiculous. She is condescending and decides to create an idea of who these people are without even knowing them, and then judges them based on that. She has a very "I am superior, and everything I like is right, and everything I don't is wrong" type of energy. Glass blowing is a complex medium, there is details that show whether an artist is good at what they're creating, or if the execution needs work. I understand personal opinion will come into that, but she takes it to a burdensome level.

    I loved seeing the creativity of the glass artists - it looks like so much fun as well as looking really difficult! That said, the decisions of the judges often seemed a bit strange given what we were told of the criteria. They seemed to agree that Chris missed the boat on fulfilling the basic brief on one (which seems like fatal flaw), yet he stayed. I was pretty surprised that Elliot won. He has stronger technical skills, but his interpretations were often pretty concrete and not complex or nuanced. Cat doesn't have quite the same technical skill (which I think can be learned), but she was much more creative and innovative in her interpretations of the challenges and took bigger risks - she really put herself out there and produced some amazing pieces. It was fun to see Deborah back as a judge.

    [Warning: spoilers] we loved season 1. The fix was in on season 2. This is supposed to be a competition with specific challenges to test your skill set and vision. Chris should've been sent home waaaaay sooner. At least he went home before the end. And it was wholly apparent producers talked to him about his attitude midway through. And on a different note, how could you send home the balanced trees?!? The entire idea of the fine balance between man and nature was the whole point. Sheesh.

    This show could have been really cool. Its fantastic to watch the artists make glass. Unfortunately, the judging is completely off base. In episode 3, they keep a well-known artist who completely failed to follow the instructions, while they send home someone who had a nice piece and followed the directions. So rigged it was infuriating. I heard it gets even worse during the later shows, and that season 1 was also equally fraught with ridiculously bad judging choices. It seems as though the producers possibly pushed the judges to retain not the best artists, but the people that would make more drama. Not necessary, the art speaks for itself. Makes me want to write a letter or something to the channel, it was so outrageous.

    Interesting Show. Good choice and balance of contestants. My personal opinion is they sent much talented men home before some women without any real talent or experience stayed way to long I think they got extra support because 2020 has become the year of the woman is equal to men in everything. Whether they are equal to the challenge or not. There was one young woman who was talented and experienced who was very deserving I was glad to see that she did get credit. Really hate to see politics in competitions. I don't want to watch a show with this type of restrictions. Its not fair. I am a woman I want to win fairly.

    Disappointed in evaluators , especially the guest. Poor decisions all around!
  • Jan 26, 2021
    I wanted to like this show - I've done a little bit of glass-blowing and I felt like watching some trashy reality TV And the contestants were fine for the most part, even though they set Chris up as an annoying villain the show leaned way too heavily on people being a woman, being black, being british to differentiate them. What I disliked most was the editing - I was never satisfied with the quick cuts that didn't let me watch the beauty of the crafting. That could have been tolerable, but the judging was so absurdly bad that the show as competition lost all being. It was clear that the pieces weren't being judged on their merit, but on how much the primary judge waved them to remain on the show. In short, people who performed the worst in a given competition got a pass to move on because they felt it would make better TV, or simply the judge was biased. Past performance clearly made up a bit part of who wasn't eliminated. Personal aesthetic preference of the main judge played a large role as well to an extent that it overwhelmed technique, creativity, or thematic suitability. Other than those qualities, it was mostly an average reality show, leaving nothing so fine as to excuse the persistent, glaring problems in editing and judging. On the bright side, the competitors truly made some wonderful pieces in limited time

    If you want to watch a show as corrupt as our government then jump right in. Watch as the judges repeatedly overlook one mans terrible glass blowing while sending home extremely talented individuals who push themselves every week. Laugh as the judges bend over backwards to find compliments for a sock, a vase with lumps at the bottom, a broken pencil and much more! If you have eyes you will be disappointed but then again you do get to see a lot of amazing pieces. Here's to season three with new judges.

    I knew going in that a guy was going to win - personally I think Elliott winning was lack luster - his pieces didn't fit the briefs and he never put himself into anything. I think better more imaginative people went home. This was disappointing as a season.
