You make a very good point, rafael02. I was just thinking about how TAR 27's cast wasn't that bad? The route was fine but the leg design was horrible... Justin & Diana only had such huge leads because of the "waiting-in-line" type of tasks. That's honestly the only reason I'd want them to return :lol: to see if they're THAT strong.

Also, the editing, yes. Huge problem. It's so strange how the editing in early TAR seasons was slower-paced, yet they fit EVERYTHING essential to the Race in the 42 minutes.

that's why we had TAR 27 re-edit :lol:

I also realised something about TAR27... a lot of the leg designs DEFINITELY felt like early-level TAR, but since we're in a whole new era it just didn't make sense? Like the HoO after the Roadblock in Africa was dumb, yes, but it definitely felt like something we would see in an early season.

TAR27 actually does have a decent cast in hindsight, but it sucks that Justin/Texas sucked up all the airtime for four entire episodes leading to very underdeveloped 7th-10th placers.

Like... Logan/Chris, Tiffany/Krista, Denise/James-Earl are DEFINITELY all-star material with Tanner & Josh being UB material. Justin fits in UB but he won 7 legs so no thanks :lol:

Still... TAR27 blew so much.

Krista: The person who comes up with the title quotes is probably the same person who made the Top 25 Amazing Race Teams list.

Diana: And the person who forgot the Speed Bump sign! Someone's getting fired!

:funny:

Speaking of Speed Bumps... WHY has the sign disappeared after Season 26? It seems like they LOST the sign in 27 and were too lazy to make the ugly replacement ones we see in 28.

^^ when did they say that tbh it's hillarious :lol: ...

hmm I think WRP kinda had problems while making TAR 27 so they were kinda too rushed to finish it before the deadline so they forgot the signs of speedbump and replaced it with RB twist, maybe?

for 28 idk, budget cuts maybe?

I wish we could list all the editing styles and choices that classic TAR did that were good that current TAR doesn't do, and then make some grand post or email to the editors
