She is insatiable, :lol: or just TARcrazy?!

I've seen every season at least twice, but I really don't think I could watch all the seasons in a week, :funny:

Will do...but when are we doing our LOST marathon?? ???

there were a lot of fast forwards in season four that didn't make sense...most teams used them after they completed the detour...
The story so far:
In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move

Molly the Mole made me laugh out loud. I felt bad for Chuck & Millie because they were always tagged with "Virgins" under their names. :lol:

But this is really where I truly fell in love with the race. You had Jon & Al for fun, Kelly & Jon for humor (although he was racist against Asians, I didn't like that), Steve & Dave for threatening to slash tires, David & Jeff for having no personality whatsoever, and Chip's intensity that I was practically rooting for he and Reichen to flip the car in Australia :lol:

Great cast, very memorable and lovable but wow some were vile to each other! I'm stopping now, leg 6 will have to wait until tomorrow zzzzzzzzz
I remember that this is the first season that I played an game on-line and every week thought that Steve & Dave would be next to go, they really did have some good luck thanks to other teams misfortunes but they are gone now  :'(

Did Tian and Jaree grow on anybody else over the course of the season?

I hated them to begin with, but then they kind of just found their way into my "All Stars" list.

I'd have to agree with you there. At first (especially at the cafe in Cortina d'Ampezzo), I thought they were hopelessly stupid, but they did grow on me and kind of proved me wrong.

I think Tian and Jaree did improve their likability throughout AR4. However, I rate them as middle-of-the-road racers, definitely not All-Star material. That would have been different if they had succeeded in knocking out Reichen/Chip in the Alleppy finish.

and how can we forget the sexist roadblock? (the one nobody thought a girl would do)
I too fell in love with TAR in this season...I remember seeing a marathon in AXN but I missed some episodes in the middle because I went out for lunch...and the next day TAR5 started airing...

Most memorable thing IMO:

I have been watching the seasons I had never seen before (I first saw season 9). Season 4 has been a season full of really difficult tasks that I wish they would still do. I loved the dragging through mud Roadblock!

Some of the tasks in the first seasons make the most recent seasons seem so meh. Like I said before, some of the magic left after season 7, sadly.

I think the task designers went soft

I liked the tasks of season 4 too.  The one thing I didn't like about was at the end most of the teams were very boring.  It just doesn't have the great excitement like the other seasons (Besides Seasons 12 and 13)
It didn't really have all of the suspense the amazing race should have.

I remember 3 things as particualrly interesting in AR4:

1. David and Jeff flying to Sydney instead of north
2. Tian doing the bull-surfing in Alleppy
3. Tain and Jaree failing to eliminate Reichen/Chip in the final DETOUR when they started that task with a lead
