Which makes total sense.

Which makes the race absolutely boring! It is really hard to read and watch the action at the same time.

Also, some teams should have received a penalty for taking particular vehicles...

I was a bit bothered by the subtitles when the teams were speaking Chinese, but maybe I'll get used to it.  I'm also wondering about penalties for taking private vehicles.  Does this not apply in the China Rush version of AR?

:welcome: to RFF, M! I don't know why they weren't given penalties either. :duno:

Thanks for the welcome  :).  I was thinking about it and I think the show would be better/easier to watch if it were either all Chinese with English subtitles or all English with Chinese subtitles.  It's kind of annoying when the language switches and you have to start reading the subtitles.

I hope that someone can find out if Sun Bin & Hao Fei'er got penalized for taking that private car.

I really hope that they show all the departure times in episode 2 because if they didn't get penalized, and the check-in times between them and the last 3 teams were less than 30 minutes, then I'll have a big problem with that.  (Of course, TPTB last year changed up the departure times, so they might not be accurate if they do it again this year.)

Just watched Episode 1 and I REALLY enjoyed it!

Was kinda sad to see Paul/Nash go, but at least Matt/Kylie stayed!

If I had to rank the remaining ten teams from favorite to least favorite

1. Matt/Kylie- Matt is very likable and funny while Kylie provides fantastic entertainment. The fact that it was down to the wire between them and another team made me instantly pull for them.

2. Mary/Cecilia- They're smart and savvy and I find them to be fun to watch. I hope they last a while.

3. Rhett/Howie- Going in, I didn't really think I'd like them and would find them to be rather camera-hoggish, but they provided some fun to the episode.

4. A Lai/Jackie- The mother is absolutely ADORABLE! I love her! Her son, while likable, is overshadowed by her adorableness.

5. Lily/Jan- Lily is awesome! She's funny and really cool! I like them a lot and think that they have great potential.

6. Elena/Tameka- They seemed a bit quiet this episode, but I hope they have a breakout episode next week.

7. Hao Fe'ir/Sun Bin- I like Hao Fe'ir and find her adorable, but Sun Bin isn't as entertaining as her.

8. Xiao/Lv- Meh. That's all I have in terms of an opinion of them.

9. Summer/Eachan- Meh. They're not really entertaining, but I don't dislike them by any means.

10. Simon/Katherine- I want to like them, I really do, but they seem a bit boring compared to the rest of the teams.
Game Reps- Lindsey Richter (Survivor CL Greenland)
S28- Spencer/Kass/J'Tia/Tasha/Lindsey
Survivor ZA5- Marion/Buhle/Shona/Moyra/Vel

I love watching new racers! I'm rooting for Elena and Tameka, and Jackie/A Lai.

And I feel they shouldn't cut out that roadblock! They'll leave viewers confused.

I forgot to say that I think the intro is much better than the earlier versions. 

The only problem that I have with the intro is Mary & Cecilia's portion; there are too many different shots: digging in the sand, a wide shot of a beach, riding some vehicle, and then the team pose.  I think theirs is a mess. 

Everyone else got the standard shot of the team in action and then the team pose, which works much better.

I was also disappointed that they didn't have Behind the Rush like last year.

Race fairness-wise, the English/Chinese thing is a good adjustment.
Viewing-wise, unless you understand both, it's a rush in itself. :lol:
Personally, HOPEFULLY even though it's not Cantonese, I can learn to understand and speak a bit! My teacher did say to watch more Chinese drama. And this Chinese race drama should be enough. :lol3:

I liked the first episode, my faves after this first eppy are A Lai & Jackie and Mary & Cecilia!

I initially thought that the Detour was not balanced enough, that the second option is too hard, but I'm so wrong. The first one is a lot tougher!

And that unaired RB looks fun. X) I wish we could've watched the teams do it.
TARCW: Beast Boy 1 & Raven 1 (Leg 2*13G29S5C*Avatar: The Last Airbender*1st!)
TARJ: Heidi 5 & Vincent 3 (Leg8*2,604PHP+$1*Davao,Philippines*2nd!)

         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*

Edit:
ok, that last bit was a bit of an exaggeration
