This is just for recency purposes and because of the finale finishing.

TAR28:

Leg 1: A- (I really loved it! The worst part was honestly the first ten minutes with the dumb home start and the OTT-ness of these teams about their social media following but then other than that it was easily the best premiere in a long long time. Easy A+ had it not been for the start.)

Leg 2: B- (I thought it was just alright. I had a hard time following things at the Detour though and I wasn't a fan of the linearity of the leg =/ )

Leg 3: B+ (Meh start, AMAZING second half. The teams right after Sheri & Cole finished the task all delivered and it was such an entertaining episode. Transformed a C- episode to a B+.)

Leg 4: D- (It felt like a TAR24 remake and the only thing saving this episode was the tasks =/ )

Leg 5: F (lol.)

Leg 6: A- (Aside from a meh Roadblock, forced #Blodie, and Tyler finally being insufferable, easily the best of the season!)

Leg 7: A (It just got better lol. Amazing leg, excellent tasks, crappy boot =/)

Leg 8: B (I wasn't a big fan of the leg, but it was pretty tense, self-driving was good, and Dana's meltdowns saved it.)

Leg 9: B- (It was ok!)

Leg 10: D+ (It sucked!)

Leg 11: A- (It was great!)

Leg 12: C- (Really underwhelming and linear bye)

Overall Season Grade: B

TAR28: (Complete!)
Leg 1: B+
Leg 2: A
Leg 3: B+
Leg 4: B+
Leg 5: B
Leg 6: B-
Leg 7: A
Leg 8: B
Leg 9: B
Leg 10: B
Leg 11: A
Leg 12: B+

Overall: B+

Leg 1 had a messy editing, otherwise it could've gotten a higher rating.
Leg 2 with 11 teams are always awesome! :cheer: Well, as long as the leg design and the location are great too.
Leg 3 was boring from the beginning. Glad it got exciting towards the end.
Leg 4 could've gotten A or A-, but the teams bunching up before the pit stop just ruined it.
Leg 5 had tasks that are too simple. The location was amazing though!
Leg 6 could've been better, but that one roadblock ruined it.
Leg 7 had so much drama. We had Zach & Rachel win for the first and only time, and we see Tyler & Korey fighting to stay in the race! The tasks show so much culture, and they are ultimately difficult!
Leg 8 was more on TAR15 flashbacks and navigational drama. Yay for the return of self-driving! :conf:
Leg 9 had difficult tasks, but it came down to roadblock performances and mistakes.
Leg 10 would've been good, but the linearity messed it up.
Leg 11 was dramatic especially for the bottom 2. The tasks are difficult enough for a penultimate leg.
Leg 12 was fun, although not the best finale. It was decent too.

TAR 28:

leg 1: A- ( yeah first 10 Minutes was not too fun but afterward <333333333, detour and roadblock on first leg <333 scott <33 Teams except Tyler/Korey and Darius Cameron <33 mess at detour <333 )

leg 2: A- (roadblock and detour is worth to watch, Blair glamness <333 )

leg 3: B ( the last half of TAR is just <3333 the task was yeah good, just good, but last 30 minutes was that why  we miss so much of old TAR ... really intense and suspenful. .. <3333 )

leg 4: B- (the task was great but too bad the intense was gone in last minutes since we had already known who was eliminated... i like the idea of having pit stop in another country. .. just dislike the result )

leg 5: B- ( actually this leg was decent in term of extremely tasks and great scenery from Mt. Blanc itself. but yeah had this leg was a self-driving leg and not-too-linear leg, it would have been stepped up into a great one)

leg 6: B ( a good debut, Armenia! this leg was suprisingly fun (and heartwrenching  ) leg... the ARI was suprisingly hillarious, detour was really solid... the RB was under my expectation (i though it would have been a great draining task but...) but Sheri's  ... glad it was a TBC leg... like the idea of rewarding the express pass in this leg rather than first leg which tend to be borimg actually....

leg 7: A ( another great debut!!! really intense from start of the leg<333 highly applause for RB and Detour and their cultural relevance <333 zach  and Rachel's  first win <333 Georgia itseof it amazing!! intense fighting-for-last editing but surely a dissapointing result </3 really worthful to re-watch )

leg 8: B

Leg 9: A (as a Indonesian, i'm very happy and enjoyed this leg... best Indonesian leg so far and a top-tier leg (tied with Gerogian leg ) so far this season)

Leg 10: B (am I only one who did enjoy this leg?  actually the detour was good, the RB was linear but I think it's fine... the u-turn drama  <3 )

Leg 11:A- ( really good penultimate leg <3 altough all the tasks were culturally irrelevant, but still presented Shenzen and its daily life as well. the RB was great with geographical challenge + frantic run <333 detour was good, I really like the unicycle task but painting was boring though, but it somehow balanced and challenging too... the last 15 minutes editing <333333 )

Leg 12:B (a crazy finale though, i enjoyed first half but the second half was meh... Bit linear, second Rb was useless and too cheesy... But still enjoy it)

Overall: A-

In what universe does the leg where Charla & Mirna get unnecessarily snubbed by Polish locals warrant a C lol?

TAR11's ending... =/

It was a poorly designed leg, although I understand why they had to do that.

I edited my post above. Leg 7 alone was awful, but Leg 7 and 8 together was decent as a whole episode.

TAR13:
Leg 1: D- (if only they didn't bunch them and actually had teams compete + the Detour was boooooooooooooring)
Leg 2: C (the leg itself sucks and is worthy of an F, the episode itself with the teams is NOT worthy of an F)
Leg 3: C+ (Aside from dragging a little bit at the Roadblock it was alright but nothing special)
Leg 4: A+ (the best NZ leg ever)
Leg 5: B- (Just ok but the Detour was meh)
Leg 6: A+ (the best India night leg ever)
Leg 7: A+ (the second best India day leg ever)
Leg 8: A (painful elimination aside it was fun)
Leg 9: D- (I was falling asleep)
Leg 10: F (I fell asleep)
Leg 11: F (I fell asleep x2)

Overall Score: B-

If only Dandrew/Kelly & Christy/Terence & Sarah were the Final Three, the season would be better, yes?

Season 5

Leg 1 : B- (Meh :tantrum  All I can remember is Charla & Mirna gambling)
Leg 2 : B+  (The Twins VS Chip & Kim)
Leg 3 : A- (Mirna airport's moment and Charla got electrocuted  :funny:)
Leg 4 : A (Who can forget the disgusting Caviar and Charla & Mirna in the ice hockey gear  :funny:)
Leg 5 : A (Crazy flight drama  :cheer: Charla & Mirna sneaking off from everyone else at Midnight  :hearts:)
Leg 6 : B+ (Mirna dealing with the Goats  :funny:)
Leg 7 : A- (Colin & Christie VS Charla & Mirna  :luvya: , sad elimination of Charla & Mirna  :( )
Leg 8 : B (boring episode in this season, but still way better than the recent TAR epsidoes  (:;) )
Leg 9 : B+ (I don't like overcrowding India, the moments when bowling moms & Twins thinking they are last are hilarious  :funny:)
Leg 10 : A (extreme sports in New Zealand, the flight drama and Chip & Kim VS Twins again at the yield is so dramatic  :luvya: )
Leg 11 : A- (My ox is broken by Colin  :cheer: )
Leg 12 : A (Colin passing Karen at the roadblock, marking the stop of history making moment  :( )
Leg 13 : B+ (The Canada part is a bit boring)

Overall : A
Mostly because of Charla & Mirna. These two truly own the title of "drama queens" for the TAR history.
The dozen amount of flight drama also makes this season outstanding

Furthermore, the race course is finely designed to introduce the Money stripping penalty for being NEL
Every leg following a NEL is designed to minimize the need of money by either
(1) Being a self - driving leg / Transportation provided leg (Leg 10 New Zealand, Leg 12 El Nido)
(2) Being in a country with very low living standard (Leg 6 Egypt / Leg 9 India)

This will lower the adverse impact of having no money for the last place team, ensuring a more fair competition between teams  :luvya:
To conclude, I truly understand why everyone thinks Season 5 is the top of TAR history  :hearts:
