What would you want to tell CBS/WRP if you could?
Some are too long to read, and I don't feel like typing every rant I have in mind right now, so I'll just list the important ones IMO.
1. Lessen gimmick seasons.
It's okay to have them once in 5 to 10 seasons, but overflowing them in a short period of time is a bad idea. I may or may not like the new twists, but if TAR thinks it's good, too much of a good thing is bad.
2. Cast unfit people and older people.
Their chances of winning may be small, but their presence and actions on the show may be fun to watch. Besides, they're really easy to root for.
3. Continue visiting new countries
, but also consider countries that have not been visited for several seasons
4. Have the fast forward
appear at least twice
each season. I would wish for about 4 times if possible, but at least 2 will do. I miss seeing teams fight for a fast forward, then when at least one of them loses, the fast forward could have cost that team the race. I think fast forwards still have a significance to legs that have them.
has been a crucial part of the race, so please have this more often. Recent example: Matt & Dana weren't good with self-navigation in Dubai, so imagine having more legs that require self-driving. The game would've played and differently! I like Matt & Dana winning though, but things would've been different if the crucial skill of self-navigation appeared more often.
6. The yield
was not a poor idea in my opinion, so having this back could make some legs better.
7. Please have more NELs in earlier legs
, so the other teams (who will be eliminated early) could still be recognized and remembered some way or another.
8. TAR is aware that there are fans of the show outside the US, so I really hope secret scenes and missed episodes
can be more accessible
to those living outside the US
. I really don't understand the point of the geoblock.
This has been elaborated really well several times by other people in the forum.
10. 60 minutes, or rather 43 minutes, is not enough in my opinion. Can we please have 90-minute episodes
, inclusive of commercials, for some or all episodes?
