Favorite Leg of Country
« on: January 24, 2016, 11:28:30 AM »
What's your favorite leg in a certain country?

For example, my favorite Indonesian leg was TAR 23 Leg 9.

~Europe~

- UK:
-- England: 25.02 (actually difficult decision! I would've chosen 3.03 but half of it was in Scotland :cries)
-- Scotland: 22.10
-- Wales, NI: only one leg lol

- Portugal: 3.04
- Spain: can I say none? uh...21.10 I guess ;_;
- France: 21.11
- Netherlands: 27.07 (I'm really meh on this season in general but the amount of travel skills necessary boosts it)
- Germany: 22.09
- Denmark: 25.04
- Norway: 6.02
- Sweden: can I say none? uh...um...oh wait, 17.04! 17.05 is the bottom 10 leg of all time but that's entirely in Norway ^_^
- Poland: 23.05
- Austria: 23.06
- Switzerland: 3.08 (it's kind of sad that the best Swiss leg is the first one AND an NEL at that)
- Italy: 12.07 (in a surprise twist of fate, the runner up would be 24.08 o_o)
- Russia: 13.10 (but the three St. Petersburg legs were also good yay)
- Turkey: 7.09

Poll added for favorite country in the West African region! :)

All three countries really deserve return visits, tbh.

Senegal of course! Such classic and very entertaining. Adam's melting down in the lake. <33 Kendra's melting down at everything. <3

Burkina Faso 1 came very close as a runner-up though.

All legs which were won by Diep Lam Anh & Thu Hien (leg 3, 8, 9 and 12) were the very good legs!
Leg 5 TARVN 4 in Laos would be also the good leg if they weren't feature making-money task
Leg 7 and 8 of TAR Australia 2 were also the good legs

OTHER CONTINENTS whee

~North America~
Canada: 8.11a (episode numbering is weird with this season but it's the Montreal leg)
Mexico: 3.02
Panama: 19.11
US: 12.11 (top 10 leg IMO)

~South America~
Brazil: right, so...Brazil legs are generally terrible? I feel like 18.11 is the obvious choice but Trap Detours shouldn't be deciding finalists so 2.02 it is!
Chile: 23.02
Argentina: if Brazil legs are generally terrible, Argentina legs are AWFUL usually. 5.02 had some fun travel drama so that.
Peru: 26.11 (there wasn't a lot of ~flash~ but this leg stuck to the great strategy of Make Every Task Difficult <3)

~Africa~
Morocco: 25.05 (unpopular opinion: this is the best leg of 25 - not Copenhagen, not Singapore, not the second Philippines leg and surely not the finale)
South Africa: 2.03 (it's bumped up by the airport drama but the leg itself is good too :O sending teams to their possible death <3)
Tanzania: 5.07
Botswana: 22.07

~Oceania~
Australia: 9.10 (Darwin <3)
New Zealand: 13.04 (sidebar I WOULD have chosen 2.11 since the tasks took a backseat to teams driving up the length of New Zealand but I can't justify the fact that the RB / Detour were both really simple)

~Asia~
China: 18.05
Japan: 18.03
India: hmm...I enjoy watching 5.09 but that's because of teams, 1.09 was difficult but that's because of teams so...13.07 it is!
Taiwan: 12.10
Hong Kong/Macau: 2.07
UAE: 15.06
Oman: 17.08
Bangladesh: 17.09
Thailand: 2.05
Vietnam: 10.03 (since this asked for favorite leg I have to go with this leg which not many people praise despite it being ridiculously well designed; 3.11 is probably my favorite episode of all time so there's that)
Cambodia: 13.05
Malaysia: 16.08
Singapore: 25.09
Philippines: 25.11
Indonesia: 23.09 (22.04 was a fun episode but that was mainly due to teams getting Killer Fatigue far earlier than usual)

only tar5 went to WildWadi, S15 & 28 went to the Aquaventure water park. Also Tar23 went to WadiAdventure which is probably the same company as WildWadi but it's in Al Ain, not Dubai.

What's it with the UAE and waterparks!  :funny: :funny: :funny:

Also if I remember the leg design of that TAR 5 leg was kinda ragged?

- Taxis everywhere instead of self-driving (granted this was a replacement leg so that's less of an issue)
- if the RFF Wiki is to be believed, the unaired RB shuffled the order of teams completely so...why not air it?
- I feel like "skydiving vs. slow form of transit" is lame for a Detour PLUS it had been done before in TAR 3 and 4
- camels are cool but the camels here were all well-behaved :(

Weirdly enough I think Dubai 2 in 15 was still the best - physically challenging RB, mentally challenging Detour, and the waterslide was a nice way to transition between the Detour and Pit Stop especially given that apparently you can't just go into the Atlantis. Add Mika freaking out and you have a classic leg by TAR 15 standards.  :yess:

Where was the leg meant to be? I think the roadblock went unaired because of the whole Colin vs Taxi driver feud!
