    I am most glad my team: Joey & Danny are doing well. I thought I'd be out by Leg 3 to be completely honest. This is going to be interesting, can't wait to see what happens next.

    Oh well. Now that they're gone, I have no reason to continue watching The Amazing Race anymore. I'm not impressed with Season 20 so far anyway, haven't had a particularly memorable season since 15 and 18. 17 was average, and before that, 12 was the last edition with any significance.


    I am disappointed and shocked to see the early elimination of Joey & Danny, but screw it. Consider this my farewell of the TV series, as I have lost interest, no turning back now. It can only get worse from here I'm afraid. I may continue posting about the GOOD seasons 1-7, 9 & 11, 15 & 18. Seasons I considered mediocre such as 8, 10, 12 and 17 I might still discuss, but anything past TAR 15 excluding Unfinished Business is to be erased from my memory.

    Definitely agree that TAR has gone extremely downhill! I share very similar opinions to you, j19000, as you know, and I hope we will continue to discuss the best of TAR!


    This season - for me - has been a big improvement over TAR19 so far, but I'm still not too convinced. I do, however, love that the Fast Forward has returned, which is one thing tht has made me really ahppy about this season!


    I do, however, hope that TAR significantly improves soon!

    The show started dropping after TAR 12, and when that happened there were only a couple seasons here and there that were good. Seasons 15, 17 and 18 were the few good ones - all with flaws but they were good.


    TAR 20 so far is like 16, just a dull season with no entertainment, except unlike 16, this one has some good teams.



    I'll make a run through:


    Season 1 - Began this amazing series. It was a weird show in its first edition, but it was entertaining, fresh and quality


    Season 2 - Superior to the first season, a mostly good cast, some nice destinations and nice entertaining pull factor there. Hated the winners, suspense wasn't the best either


    Season 3 - This season defines 'The Amazing Race'. I absolutely love TAR 3, with a perfect cast, brilliant locations, amazing task design (excluding those lame Fast Forwards this season but I can over look that), brilliant winners and just a huge success to the show


    Season 4 - Yeah this one wasn't very good, mainly because the suspense pull factor was at an all time low. The cast were obviously last minute picked, and even though the first five legs (and Australia) were the good ones, they were all under the same problem - low entertainment, low suspense and a dying series


    Season 5 - This season saved TAR after theanaemicratings of TAR 4. Beautiful season and the first season of the 'golden period', great cast, wickedly interesting personalities, high suspense - diverse locations, action and a high start and finish. One of the best, absolutely


    Season 6 - The golden period continues with TAR 6. This, is my favourite season of the show. Like TAR 3 and 5, it combined excellent locations, suspense, task design, quality and entertainment to make it fantastic. With this season, almost everything was perfect. The cast were mostly great, and the amazing show had just provided us with the greatest achievement it would ever provide (Season 6)


    Season 7 - The third and final edition of the 'golden period'. This season had the best cast next to TAR 3, with nice locations - (though not quite as impressive as previous seasons), brilliant suspense, the most interesting casting the show has probably given us, the BEST winners of the show, and one heck of a final episode. I wish TAR would produce seasons like these again


    Season 8 (Family Edition) - No, it wasn't with teams, no they didn't travel the world, no the suspense was pretty shocking and no there wasn't much of a pull factor. However, when you compare this with the later TAR, you would appreciate this more. I did enjoy moments of this season, and it least it was during the good days.


    Season 9 - Great season! This one provided quality, an amusing race, some good moments there, one of the show's greatest all time winners and some pretty impressive locales. There were a few flaws to pick out but it was good work


    Season 10 - They tried to provide us with shocking new twists this season, but they failed, badly. This season did not do very well for me on a general level because they stopped trying hard with providing good locations and challenges and focussed more on the teams, and twists. The winners were fine, but all flaws together, this one did not do too well in my opinion


    Season 11 (All-Stars) - This was a great season, flawed yep but poor, absolutely not. I liked this one, as we saw the return of 11 lovable teams from past seasons in a second attempt to race around the world. If there was any season this was similar to, I would say TAR 7. They took a similar route, but provided some nice tasks and high suspense.


    Season 12 - I disliked this season for many years, but now I have really started to appreciate it more. Its not among the favourites but it did the job, with nice tasks, suspense and locations. I would have TAR revert back to a season like this anyday


    Season 13 - The beginning of the crunch, low pull factors, bad locations, poor suspense, terrible cast, and boring


    Season 14 - Awful winners, lacking in TAR style, some good teams and locations but not enough to save it from mediocrity


    Season 15 - This is one of the best seasons, and yes it was fairly recent. They actually provided us with a nice mix of teams, and had some twists that worked, suspense, good destinations, nice winners and a memorable race.


    Season 16 - Boring, boring, boring


    Season 17 - It worked well, I guess. Although not on par with TAR 15, I enjoyed the episodes I watched


    Season 18 - A second attempt at bringing back teams, it worked, but it flawed. Still, I can't deny it beats all the other new stuff (excluding 15)


    Season 19 - I thought this would be the end of TAR. What was there to like? Everything was so out of place, last minute tasks, boring show, awful cast, terrifying winners, no pull factors. Goodbye TAR? Not quite
