rewatching season 1
« on: December 28, 2008, 06:44:34 PM »
rewatching season one but I'm all over the place looking for episodes, I had links bookmarked to the websites that have all the seasons but have since wiped all my folders clean so if someone can help me find those links I'd appeciate it.

I'm just past EP9 ..and is it strange to watch again but I'm enjoying it.

-real greeters as greeters at the pitstops
-Phil only appearing when the last team arrives
- predicatable non-elim legs
- Fast Forward every leg
-Phil's awkwardness, explaining tasks with his hands, like some of us Italians do  :cmas20
-Phils baby face, is he wearing makeup?
-Loving the Guidos although originally I had seething hate for them, I laugh at their childish, sabotaging ways now.
-Kevin & Drew, as big as their hearts
-Rob & Brennan....BORING!
-Matt & Ana I hardly knew yee
-Lenny was such a pussy and admitted so
-Paul & Amie , bitch please
-Love Frank & Margarita, my original very first favorite team......I remember crying when they didn't win
-(((((((((((Dave & Margaretta <<<<<<<<33333333333)))))))))))))))))

KiwiJay,

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I find season 1 as full of exciting action and some fascinating teams. To call it baby stuff is not warranted at all.

puddin,
I absolutely agree with you on Frank and Margarita. Frank got the label "loud and pushy" by Miss Alli at TWOP, but I felt that he was strongly assertive.

I liked K/D and the guidos better on season 1 than in all-stars, it was as if they'd had a role reversal

Actually, I hated the Guidos in S1, especially for the airport stuff with Momily. Didn't like that at all. But I have to admit after seeing them in All-Stars, they're really great guys. Plus, who could not love that toast to evil in TAR1? That was tremendous.

I loved TAR1 because it really set the table for the rest of the seasons. Plus, there were moments that were actually music-free. Kevin & Drew gave us some great moments. And who could forget, LEN-NEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

Puddin, you can watch all TAR season here (I did it): http://www.tarwaddict.net/videos.htm or here: http://www.agroovysite.com/tv-series/the-amazing-race
 
It was quite a challenge for me to watch Season 1. Because I became a TAR fan by watching Season 9. After that, I watched Seasons 10 to 12. But despite that, it has memorable moments and memorable teams: Frank & Margarita, Momily (To think they could've eliminated the Guidos if they had chosen to do the Detour), Kevin & Drew, first break-up (Lenny & Karyn)

I was using those sites but after x Amount of minutes of watching you have to wait 54 minutes to resume because you used up your allowed minutes, or of course you can pay to join which I won't do. If they videos were a high quality I'd consider it  :cmaslol

Yes you can hear them walking and breathing as well as tearing open the clues! That's what was missing, the music!

Oh and gotta love Phil, for instance describing detours which he'd never get away with now.

Um I actually do have a right to say it was "baby stuff" because the other seasons are much better and it pales in comparison to other seasons! there are ALOT of things they could change and lucky they did too  :cmas16

Remember though too that being the first season everything was fresh and new. The challanges, the places, the rules, the regulations, Phil's place in the whole thing. Many things have changed, saome for the better, some not. But, the fact that The Amazing Race is still going strong is a testiment to all those involved from Phil, the Racers and the production staff to the camera people, sound people and beuracrats that allow all of this to happen.

Puddin

I love this season, though I truely miss Phil at the mat.  And I really liked Rob & Brennan (I like nice guys and gals).

I hated (until about leg4 or 5) Kevin & Drew who were awful to each other.  Its funny if it was a male/ female team that talked that way to each other I think people would have a completely different opinion about Kevin & Drew.

But we had quite a bit of really extreme characters.  Kim & Leslie hate, Loud and Pushy Frank, Kevin & Drew screaming at each other, Amie's constant crying, Paul constant threats to quit if she kept crying. Lenny and Karin relationship falling completely apart.

And I tend not to like the really extreme characters (TTOW!), so I liked Dave and Margaretta, Momily, Rob & Brennan.

But I loved the locations and the tasks.

The shot of Kevin and Drew (actually not them but still...) silhouetted against the sky as they ran across the bridge to the Falls was what made me lose my heart completely to TAR...

Season one was fresh and new, and the racers had NO idea what to expect, nor, as viewers did we. Which was the charm of that first season.

TARA 1 had the same freshness about it as well.

Really the only real problem with season 1 I had, is that I really, really missed Phil.  But the locations starting with the very first leg all the way to the next to last episode (I did think the last episode was weak with almost nothing in NY city before the final task).

My take on it being different was because I started watching TAR from Series 3 onwards and missed out on the first 2. Seeing them was great but I feel they were only stepping stones and thats why I felt they were babyish. Because I didnt start from the beginning...Im a cheater  :cmaslol

I agree peach, Kevin and Drew running across the bridge at the falls rocked

Amies crying and barfing, and Paul's negative tude, glad they were out early.

I didn't care for Tunisia, and was with Drew on his take, too much sand.
Kevin and Drew also had some memorable quotes "swing you fat bastard..! and then Kevin I think said he left one of his balls rolling around the streets of Beijing during the rickshaw race with the Guidos :lol: , the race itself is only something that can be seen on TAR! What other show does that!?

The Guidos cheaping out on there fare after winning the Fast Forward and getting lucky not to get eliminated due to Momily's detour choice, not to do it then getting a whopping 24 hour time penalty!

Theres just so much to note such as the real first India culture shock, i was shocked! And all the places they went in India, wow!


Disappointed too mswood with the lack of Phil, I thought at least he would have been there to congratulate the final 3 teams and making the final 3 but no he only showed up to tell the fat bastards they had been eliminated, even so he truly seemed choked up for them.

Thanks peach for providing me with the links  :kisses .. i still have EP 12 & 13 to get thru then on to season 2 :jam:

Oh, and don't forget Phil's voiceover describing the race in the open! I think only one or two episodes had Phil-free voiceovers for the beginning.

Paul pissed me off and his attitude that he was only doing it for Amie and he didn't care showed me his character. And since then, hasn't Paul tried to cash in on his TAR appearance through acting and producing movies?

To me, Kevin & Drew made the season. I think the producers were thinking they might be "Ugly Americans", but they turned out to be the highlight for me with their putdowns of each other and their appreciation of the countries they visited. Momily was another highlight, but I think I had the proverbial crush on Nancy.....  :mas25 :mas25

No, seriously that crush was on Emily. We haven't heard from her since I don't think.

Dave & Margaretta were such a nice couple and they set the standard for older couples on the race that pretty much continues to this day. I'll miss Margaretta. RIP.

And just for one more time, LEN-NEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!! :cmaslol :cmaslol

mswood, you have an interesting point to consider, but there is a flip side to this. Any extra time given to New York City would have been at the expense of Alaska, which was also part of AR1, Ep.13. Does that really sound like a good idea to you? It doesn't to me. I would much rather see Alaska than NYC(although living near it does take the bloom off a bit).

As a native alaskan I have no problem with the amount of time the show has spent in that state, but one of my biggest complaionts about the finale leg (of all but season 112 and 13) is that due to equilizers mid leg, it makes it easier for any team to win.  And that leg was the worst offender out of all final legs.  They should have ended it in alaska.

Leg 12 was a waste of time for me, the equalizers, the blanket tossing to see the clue in the show that was not more than 10 feet away, visible to the naked eye. They could have squeezed this leg into the final leg.
And then we have Franks tude in leg 12, maybe frustration? I don't know but it was piss poor. On the other hand the Guidos kept a positive attitude, hoping for the slightest opening that they might still be contenders to win.

It's why we love the Guidos. They may have had the villain's edit in TAR1, but certainly didn't have that in TAR All-Stars and they always maintained a positive attitude.

And puddin's re-viewing caused me to pull out my TAR1 DVD set and watch the first episode again. Boy is Paul a wuss or what?

Season 1 was very good cast wise infact only second to season 5 for memorable teams. The ending was quite a surprise being that the final was in NYC.
For a pilot, S1 was quite remarkable compared to future seasons.

I found myself not wanting Frank to win afterall with all his cockiness, I guess when I first watched it I didn't notice because of my love for Margarita. Truly a beautiful ending afterall :jam:

I really can't recall why I wanted Frank and Margarita to win? I think they were my early favs plus I felt they really could use the money and thought if they won it might repair their relationship. So does anyone know if they are together now?
Also, does anyone know off the top of their head what music played while Rob & Brennan ran to the final mat?

I believe they are not together, I think both remarried...

I think the finish line song during season 1 is 'Now We Are Free' by 'Enya' which was also featured in the Gladiator Soundtrack.

I have a confession.

I loved Paul and Amie.

Because Amie was ridiculously competitive and Paul was just a drag along.

Loved the dynamic between them.

And Amie reminds me of me.

I found these parts to be particularly interesting:

1. the Tunis airport scene where the Guidos attempt to block Nancy/Emily from reaching the plane
2. the way task sequencing allowed Frank/Margarita and Rob/Brennan to build a 4/5 hour lead over Ken/Gerard and a 7/8 hour lead over the Guidos into a 24 hour lead over both after leaving Krabi until they flew to Beijing
3. the Guidos beating Kwevin/Drew in a taxi battle going to the pit stop in Beijing

I just really got into TAR, and also just found this forum. Yes, I am behind in the times!  :-[

I absolutely love season 1. I started watching TAR at the end of all-stars, but didn't realize how much I love this show until this last season. So far, season 1 is my favorite, although I could do without all the LENEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEES! It was like nails on a chalkboard.

I was surprised to learn Paul was in the TLC video Waterfalls. I knew he looked familiar! I think he has also been in other things, too.

Also, I think I am one of the only people who liked Frank and Margarita. I thought he was hysterical, and Margarita handled him so well!

By far the best team though was Kevin and Drew for their humor!

So far I like 1, 2,3,4, from rewatching them, not loving 5 which I think I'm on EP9. I guess me fav one of all was 7, the Romber thing and the cast, I LOVED them and 9 too, loved BJ & Tyler as well as the cast.
I'm pretty sure I loved season 6 too but have to re watch to be sure, thats if I ever get thru season 5 :lol:

That's what it seemed like to me, except that I didn't like season 4 either.  All of the other seasons I like.  The most entertaining part of season 5 was Egypt for me.

Welcome to the forum, bunny! Nice to have you here.

For me, TAR6 despite the wrong team winning, TAR7, TAR10 and TAR12.

I found Amie to be even more unbearable than Flo. Her constant crying just made it more difficult to watch the first half of the season.

One of the funniest moments, imho.  Not Kevin,  Not Drew.  Keep an eye (ear) on the local who offers his English skills.


I hope I got the embed correct.  See my screen name. :duno:
