Really strong episode.

Nice locals, nice tasks.

A cast that so far isn't offensive (though brain cells might be in short supply).

Very nice.

Loves:
Claire not falling apart.

Teams that impressed me (not necessarily in race play but how I liked them):
Jill & Thomas (just really worked well together) level headed so far, Connor & Jonathan for humor, Brook & Claire (though like the Bowling Mom's the loud voice over time might get annoying) and Nat & Kat.

Also liked Gary & Mallory (want to see more of Katie & Rachel and Michael & Kevin).

Heck I didn't even hate Chad & Stephanie, as they were much nicer then so many other fighting teams.

I did love the Bowling Mom's but when they got loud they got loud, and that is just something I have never liked in anyone.

Dunno, the guy planning on proposing during the show seems like he's got the potential.............

Potential perhaps, but really didn't see a lot in this episode (though will be watching again in a few minutes to get more accurate quotes, and thus paying more attention to specific dialogue), but he didn't act like he was the only voice of his team as we have several times when they disagree and go with her choice, I didn't hear any this is all your fault type of comments, no name calling that I recalled.  He was a little loud and a perhaps a little controlling.  But lets face it so was Brook. 

Of course it's still early yet.... (and I really might have missed some bits of dialogue).

Awesome start to the Amazing Race 17! Man that was already some excitement 10 minutes into the show, where Katie and Rachel and Chad and Stephanie were racing for the first flight. It was a bummer that the girls didn't make it, but heck, they beat them to the pit-stop anyway. I'm impressed with them this leg!

From this first episode, I really like Brooke and Claire for their energy on the race, Nat and Kat for their level-headedness and working well together, and Connor and Jonathan for being so... Geeky and funny. I like Jill and Thomas for working so well together this leg and coming in first, but I'll have to see what they'll be like in future legs. I like Michael and Kevin too! Love it that Kevin was so encouraging towards his dad. The other teams were kinda boring IMO. Chad has to tone it down, Nick and Vicky have got to be way more alert. A pity Ron and Tony lost their whole lead altogether, I think they're nice guys. But well, a team has to go.

I can't wait to see how teams will adapt when they go to Ghana next week! Looking forward to the rest of this great season. :D

Seriously Ruth, we need to stop talking about the same thing or people will think we're the same person. I thought the first 10 minutes of the show was stunningly, amazingly and awesomely good too.

And we always have the same views on all the teams too. I really like all the all-female teams and Connor and Jonathan. I particularly like the father and daughter team too. The father/daughter, father/son and mother/daughter team this season really made the race so much more interesting! I think this is the first time we had like 3 parent-child team in a single season??

This season's cast is kinda good IMO. :tup:

It was a fun first episode. I liked how the challenges were challenging and the potential for mishaps aplenty. The only problem for me with this episode was that it quickly turned predictable. Once Ron & Tony, Nick & Vicki, and Andie & Jenna all fell behind, I knew the end would be easy to guess. I like premiere episodes best when you can't tell who is going out first (remember TAR 14 anyone?).

But I love the cast so far! We needed to see some more air time from Michael & Kevin and Nick & Vicki, and less from Brook & Claire and Chad & Stephanie. Everyone else was pretty well balanced. So far there isn't any one team I don't like.

It's too bad it had to be Ron & Tony out first, though. Too predictable. It was easy to tell it would be them, for some reason. :(

I honestly think that the editors had a different approach to editing this time round. The premiere was 90 minutes long and we got a decent share of every single team on the race. Except with loads of edit coming from Brooke and Claire particularly only. It was very different from TAR 14 where we didn't know who will win until the last 10 minutes, for this premiere, Jill and Thomas won the leg when there's still 1/3 of the show left. I think by "checking" a team into a pitstop, the editor can safely stop showing footages of the teams leading and focused more on the teams who lagged behind. I think it is in the last 30 minutes of the show that we got to see how clueless Nick and Vicky can be, how nice the mother and daughter can be..

And it just so happens that Chad and Stefenie were leading the pack at first.. then lagged behind.. so they were shown throughout the episode. :lol:

How did you figure out the time? It's indoors and there's no shadows. Is it from the exif data?  :duno:

I'm also having trouble identifying the teams.  :umn:  Anybody know who they are?  :(

Ghana is WAY different than I was expecting.  :colors

Thanks for pointing out the obvious to me. I forgot what the subject of this thread is. I was thinking that the picture was supposed to an image from Episode 2 and that Chateau had put up some random image by mistake. I was trying to have some fun and be gently sarcastic, but now I just feel dumb.  :groan:
