Yup, allan wu still sucks, i must admit china rush 2 has improved dramatically from the first craptastic season, but it's still not quite there yet, oh well, it's only been 1 episode in so who knows, it could be the next TAR Australia.
I loved how china rush (unlike a certain asian version of the amazing race ) has gone from a mediocre knockoff to a quality effort that really show that the producers were trying hard. I loved the great camera work, the camera panning over the contestants with that awesome music in the background *chills* EXACTLY what the amazing race is about. However the editing is a bit lacking in the "oohs" and "aahs" department (BUT STILL A THOUSAND TIMES BETTER THAN THAT INSULT OF A VERSION, THE AMAZING RACE ASIA) and like I said, Allan Wu and his constant cheesiness is still an aggravating problem, they only need to replace that joke of a host and It'll already be a huge improvement. Hell, I'll take Grant Bowler's robotic hosting style ANYDAY.
Still, it's well done and a great effort, but I don't want to count my chickens before they hatch, because everything can easily go downhill from the very first episode (see TARA 3). oh well, the chinese - english thing is a little hard to get use to (I live in china so I have a little familiarity with the language) but to constantly go from listening the english contestants to reading the subtitles of the chinese contestants throws me off a little bit. TAR Australia started great with it's first season, TARAsia started great and went downhill to pretty much the point where it jumped the shark, and TAR China Rush started pretty awful(the first season) and now looks to be on par with TAR Australia and dare I say it, The U.S version *dramatic music*
ok, that last bit was a bit of an exaggeration
