Another exciting episode of The Amazing Race!  This week the teams stayed in Bandung, Indonesia, where the TAR producers brought in the one-a-season eating challenge, where each racer had to eat a portion of cobra.  Much was made of the strangeness of eating cobra, but it looked like a reasonably sized portion, and it appeared […]

Another exciting episode of The Amazing Race!  This week, the teams traveled from Poland to Vienna, Austria.   I always like it when The Amazing Race goes to a place I’ve traveled to, and for the first time this season, the teams did this.  I’ve even been to the Opera House (where I saw a show […]

Another exciting season premiere of The Amazing Race!  I’m happy to report that Phil Keoghan’s arched eyebrow is in great shape, and that the TAR Producers are willing to bring out the tricks to keep up the drama of the show, beyond the regular spectacular visuals and instant-world-tour nature of the show. This season, they’re […]

Another exciting series finale of The Amazing Race!  Well, it wasn’t that exciting, as the teams kind of spaced out in both of the two hours, so the TAR Editors had a tough time making it look like the outcome was in doubt.  However, there were some fun moments in the finale.  Four teams went […]

Another exciting episode of The Amazing Race!  I always like it when teams travel to somewhere I’ve been, and tonight the traveled to Edinburgh, Scotland, which I visited in 1991.  That’s 22 years!

Another exciting episode of The Amazing Race!  This week the teams travel by train from Switzerland to Berlin, Germany.  I always enjoy it when the race goes to a place I’ve visited, and I was in Berlin in December in the mid-90s, when it was under massive construction.   Phil Keoghan tells us that Berlin may […]

Another exciting episode of The Amazing Race!  Tonight the teams raced from the warm climate of Botswana to the middle of winter in Switzerland.  They went all over Switzerland, and the episode emphasized amazing visuals and a veritable inventory of Swiss clichés: Trains, Mountains, Snow, Clocks, Cheese, A Glockenspiel, A Shepherd on a Sled, Mountain […]

The Amazing Race 22 Episode 7 Recap: Maun, Botswana – Part 2

FacebookStumbleUponDiggGoogle BookmarksShare

Another exciting episode of The Amazing Race!  Tonight’s episode had kind of a slow build, but culminating in something the TAR Producers probably didn’t anticipate:  Intense chases involving donkeys where teams would actually overtake each other and actually make a difference in the outcome. This is one of those rare episodes where there is absolutely […]

The Amazing Race 22 Episode 6 Recap: Maun, Botswana

FacebookStumbleUponDiggGoogle BookmarksShare

Another exciting episode of The Amazing Race!  Tonight, after the TAR Producers sheepishly apologized to America’s veterans for throwing out some communist propaganda the prior week, teams were asked to travel to Maun.  The clue didn’t say what country that is in, so it required the teams to ask for Internet access, which, we learn, […]
