cdfe made me do it! I am so not ready for this but now that I see the cast, I guess I'm hooked  :lol:.
Donny and Alison, Donny use to post here, he was so humble and embrassed by Alison that it wasn't even funny  :lol:. Hes such a great guy, he actually grew up a few miles away from where I live now.

^^ is it a torrent cdfe? I don't do them, I'm ascared, lol.

Wow that was an intense first leg! I forgot about all the mistakes that were made.
I loved Mirna with the cow beef, she couldn't carry it with her gloves so took them off and said " I can't hold it with the gloves I will get mad cow disease!" :lol:

Actually it came from the massive torrent that had TAR 1-11 + TARA1, i erased s1 and s7 because i have the dvd's, but I found really good S12, S13, A2 and A3 .avis in other forums (dl takes about one hour per episode in megaupload)

This is where I originally loved Charla & Mirna and then turned when I saw them for real in TAR All-Stars. I think I was distracted by Colin's horrible behavior in this season. When he got detained by the police, I was hoping that it would be the last time we would ever see him again.

I only watched EP1 last night, too many distractions around here to enjoy it. I remember EP2 and am looking forward to Alisons meltdown , lol.
Some trivia for those with a good eye, Alison did not make the finish line to cheer on the last teams, rather, they had a stand in according to Donny, she refused.

TAR5 is the best of the series to date with the exception of no RB rules it was without fault. TAR had great teams, places, and tasks. Also, toward the end Colin mentioned something about it is getting foggy but didn't realize that would effect air travel.  :duno:
If I had reccomend one TAR season for someone to watch it would be TAR5(although TAR6 was my personnal favorite).

Task-wise, I agree but IMO, the cast left the second half of the season was pretty un-memorable. On season 5 at least the conflicts were amusing

In season five Charla and Mirna and Colin and Christy were the sources of many of the conflicts, but Kami and Karli and Chip and Kim also had their fair share.  I the end, however, everyone was happy.   :tup:
In season six Adam and Rebecca, Lori and Bolo, and Jonathan and Victoria were having conflicts inside their teams.  Lori and Bolo didn't really care about how they communicted because they were used to yelling at each other, not really meanly.  Adam had some issues of talking about jumping on train tracks.  Haydon and Aaron had some issues too.  Most of the teams that made it far, bicked A LOT.  I think there was a little too much conflict in Season 6.

Colin & Christie made me hurl. Chip & Kim I liked and were the first team I had actually picked from the beginning to win.

I enjoyed the antics of Colin and Christie (after all, who can forget Colin almost getting arrested?)

Can't go past Linda and Karen though.

PS. Adam Troy Castro breaks down the Colin incident really well in My Ox Is Broken

God I hate Charla & MIrna.

Okay got that out of my system.

For as much grief as we give Jonathug, Allison proves in two episodes to be nearly as bad (can you imagine if they would have lasted, Yikes).

Season 5 is very popular, but in many ways its popular for the things I hate about the race.

I hate all conflict between teams.  I mean this season had it in spades.  From Marshall and Lance to Charla & Mirna.  To Allison & Donny to each other, to Colin & Christie to Charla & Mirna, to Chip & Kim to Kami & Karli, ect.

Just a ton of fighting.  And I wonder why Season 6 was cast how it was.

That leg is one of my favourites. It had amazing moments: Charla riding a camel. Chip helping Kami & Karli: "Forgive me now, Kami!" "Okay, you're redeemed" XD  The first twist on the race.

This season has my all time least favorite racer and my most favorite team. Loved the locations....

If this season had had the 6 Roadblock's each rule, it could have been perfect. Teams to love, teams to hate, drama everywhere... loved it!

Finally I finshed! ..from memory
Back to back NEL hate!
4 NEL leg hate!
Christy demanding that her jeepney driver in Manila just run over the pedestrian hate THEN talking about Karma boomeranging back to Chip n Kim for yielding her and Colin *hate*
zorbing love, most memorable task ever!
I loved El Nido Islands, thought the task were clue, the big clam and sadly the ascender detour that did the Bowling moms in  :(
Chip and Kim winning  :jumpy:!! You could tell Phil was happy, he always seemed different to Chip n Kim, you could tell he really really liked this team.
Oh and you just know the editors had fun with the teams this season, namely Brandon and Nicole with their religion and all  :lol:

My favorite was watching Chip & Kim in Africa. They were truly a great team. And then they started plugging their website.  :groan:

In all fairness, this was an example of out of context editing. It was later shown that this comment actually was referring to another team's camera crew in a jitney in front of them, who was blocking their progress... NOT really to a pedestrian.

But don't get me wrong, I still don't like them, :lol:

I think what really hooked me on TAR was the double episode in Egypt. My family lived in Cairo for 6 years, in the late 60s/early 70s, between the wars. It was not a very pleasant place to live at the time. Egypt was using most all of its money at the time to fund the military operation later known as the Yom Kippur war in Oct of 73 and life was very harsh. When we lived there, there were approximately 450-500 Americans in country and an estimated 150,000 Eastern Block military. Russians, Ukranians, Romanians, and Yuposlavs. My younger sister graduated from high school there. My parents actually left Egypt 2 weeks before the war started in 1973. All of their possessions were sitting in lift van on docks in Alexandria when it started.

TAR did cover most of the "big" spots there in TAR 5, but like India, there are many other places to see and do. I have always wanted to see teams negociate the Khan el Kalili...what locals call the Moosky.........the Cairo kasbah. That would be a riot watching them negociating that thousand year old market place. Also most everyone forgets about Alexandria on the Med coast. It is a much more fascinating city than Cairo. So many cultures have remnants left there. My parents had a villa, just west of Alex, and not that far from El Alemain battlefield from WWII. I remember spending a lot of fun times on the beach there.

I personally have not been there since 1971, but I have really been thinking of going back to see how it has changed. Two places they could go to in upper Egypt is the Aswan damn complex and the temple of Abu Simbul, but there is still lots to see in Luxor and Cairo too, like the Citadel above the city on the eastern bank.

Oh, I can remember Charla & Mirna trying to steal a cab, only to piss off Colin & Christy (and I don't really blame them). And in the next leg, Christy trying to block the doorway as payback.

I had no problem with the twins, but one of my favorite moments was them swimming to the finish line when everybody else walked through the water and onto the island. The kids with Phil were laughing so hard. I think it was Kami who was doing the backstroke.

And Phil called them out and asked why they swam when the other teams simply walked *ZING!* :stare  :lol:
