I need the amazing race at least once a week, so I am very grumpy...
Fortunately I have Survivor to look forward to!

I should try to be more happy... :funny:

And at least we will have more time to spoil.

I'm really excited for every episode and as the season gradually moves closer to the end, it gets harder to do this skipping at a point like this. Especially after we just found out our top 5 was not what we thought it would be.

This pre-emption of the Amazing Race coincidentally coincided with the Christian-Catholic Holy Week. And the 5 day holiday week.. the one week Roman Catholic (Like the Philippines) countries have nothing at all to watch except cable since everyone's on vacation(anywhere where Beaches are, other countries...). This is worse since there is no TAR and I have to do a marathon of seasons 11 - 14, + TARA 3 on my PC for times that I don't have anything to do for the week...

SHUCKS! Bring Back TAR!  :knuckles:

I don't even know If I'll survive a week more of no TAR!

I hope the US version would follow the Israel version of having 2 hours of TAR every week! Grrr, at least if we happen to get something like this, we get to have already a half leg!

I don't watch Survivor anymore because
1)of our local station bastardizing the show by putting it on late primetime, 5 times a week...
2)it gets boring like TAR, which has different sceneries and stories every week.

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 "šūdas!" 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. B:)

I know how I'm gonna compensate for the boredom.  Every night, starting this Sunday, I'm gonna take out my tapes and watch one episode of the season so far, leading up to this point, starting with the premiere (and Preston & Jennifer's elimination) on Sunday, and ending with episode seven (and Mel & Mike's elimination) on Saturday.  Then, I'll be ready for episode eight when it starts a week from Sunday.

Weird, I guess, but I've gotta combat the boredom somehow.

Since we are so bored of NO TAR FOR ANOTHER WEEK BECAUSE OF COUNTRY MUSIC AWARDS TAKING UP TAR'S SPACE THIS SUNDAY...

I just want to ask all forumers and amazing race fans like me some ideas to ponder...

Don't you think BVM is turning TAR to TARA in terms of editing in episodes, and crucially double-triple legs even? Minus all the new things implemented only this season... (I am currently rewatching the third season of TARA, and man, If that was the race route these season's teams took, Margie, Linda and all the others would have fainted since the first leg...)

Did you see a lot of high foreheads in the crowd? Not that I'm implying anything. :lol:

Here's Carrie at last year's CMA's. Having no idea about country music, I don't know what she's singing, but I do know she looks good in this clip.
