I recently rewatched and TARAus2 and I think that is one of the reasons why I think it is so good is because there is a lot of time spent on character development and the rivalry of everyone vs. Paul & Steve, and just the drama between all of the teams. And even if there was not drama within some teams, I feel like there was a lot of character development of the teams, like Lucy and Emilia, Sticky & Sam, Sue & Teresa, etc. There is not as much focus on the tasks, and while they are present, they are more about beating the other teams and being competitive and/or about enjoying the tasks and the race.
This and a trillion! TAR Australia 2 is the first international version of the race I watched and everything from that season is perfectly seamed together and all the teams were very memorable from the team-based editing, especially Lucy & Emilia, Sticky & Sam, and James & Sarah. I hope next season can follow this style. The U.S. version needs sprucing, cleaning and freshening to say the least. :tup:

Nah...I would say the editing got bad starting with S14 when airport-drama was cut to almost nil. In addition, producers focused more on troubling, less fun fights (Luke vs. Kisha) and wanted more shock value.

Cairo is indeed amazing, I cannot believe Colin & Christie still ended up arguing after being more than 12 hours ahead ON A FAST FORWARD :lol: :lol: :lol: <3

The episodes are amazing as the production spent most of the time on teams development and finding flight
In most of the episodes, the tasks are not the main focus of the episodes

Yeah, the task-based editing began from TAR9 and sadly got worse from there :(

Nah...the beginning 3-4 of TAR26 drag it down in season rankings.

Don't forget Season 1 & 2 as both are awesome and fun seasons! (And 9 also!)

TAR26 is a top 10 season (TAR3/5/6/8/11/12/17/18/25 being the other 9) aside from the ending

Watching BJ & Tyler and Eric & Jeremy being always ahead was extremely boring
The only exciting episode of that season for me is Oman, where the above two teams fell behind l

If you're talking about TARAus 3 it doesn't :(

Alternatively, find TAR Canada 2 and watch the first 11 episodes :tup:

Actually he (first person) doesn't aware that TAR Aus 3 has already aired with different feel and style than TAR Aus 2.
I only care about female team to win or final 3!

Oh, whoops. I didn't think that phrase would cause a lot of confusion at first.

I meant I hoped TAR29 will follow the team emphasis on the race rather than centralizing on tasks.

My favorite tasks would have to be the challenge at the end, when they have to remember where they went.
My least favourite is the head-shaving FF, because it just gets repeated over and over again :gaah:

Certainly not. China has been visited 13 times, that is overused NOT AUSTRALIA! China was also visited LAST season, while Australia was last visited 10 seasons ago! The FF head-shaving is boring, when you have much other Fast Forwards, u can use again. Hope that answers your question

Not relevant - a very good source informed me that Dan and Andrew were slated to be on UB but backed out at the last minute. Thoughts on how they would do/who they would replace?

They would have most likely replaced Mel & Mike. What a significant amount of TAR14 teams that season. :lol:

TAR14 is a horrendous season but for some odd reasons, it is well-liked by production which is why it has almost half of the cast in S18. It was the reboot season for TAR and where the producers believe the history of the show started.

Nah TAR14 teams got featured because of a little thing called Jodi Wincheski joining production as a Casting Director.

That certainly didn't hurt, but Bertram was defending vigorously when the returnees were announced for S18
