If the boredom gets too awful there's always over 11 hours of TAR Israel on Reshet TV here
I don't speak Hebrew, but I still think it's pretty entertaining. Wait till you see the race cars these contestants drive for a roadblock. No wimpy go carts and no squeezing in as a passenger on a real, grown-up race car for these folks. Nosiree. These are honest-to-gosh, you-better-know-what-you're-doing race cars. Again, I don't do Hebrew, so I don't know how fast they go. But I'd bet it's a lot
faster than a go cart. They have to complete a ???km course in under 2 minutes. 5km would mean average 150 kmh. What's that? A little less than 100mph? Average. Faster on the straight-aways.
On the no-Hebrew thing: It appears that most, if not all, of the contestants speak English better than just OK. They have no problem communicating in South Africa and English comes in handy in non-English (and non-Hebrew) countries, too. Like Viet Nam. No kidding. Well, anyway, many of the racers use English expletives in otherwise all Hebrew conversations. Surprising setbacks are often greeted with a "F*ck!" or "Sh*t!" It was surprising to hear, but then I figured good old USofA network censors might let a TAR contestant's uttering of "ūdas!" pass, too.
Oh, yea. Reshet TV has novel way of getting btheir commercials in. They can appear anywhere unexpectedly. Like right in the middle of the intro sequence. Maddening. And look out for your ears. They (Reshet) really blast the sound on some of them (the Commercials). Injuriously so if you're wearing earbuds like yours truly was. They (Reshit again) disable the controls, too. Can't skip. Can't pause. CAN'T TURN DOWN THE VOLUME.
I guess No-TAR-for-two-weeks boredom leads to watching TV in languages you don't understand and too long posts.
