I think the finale episode is so dull. I only like the first few minutes of it, when they all arrived in the flight simulation task.
It seems that the TAR finale episode is getting duller as season goes by.
Yes! I agree with your first sentence, definitely! It was pretty meeeeeh for me. Even RFF thought of a better possible final task than this one!
But your second sentence? I beg to differ. I liked TAR15, TAR16, and TAR17's finale.
I thought TAR 16 was dull. TAR 15 one was still the best in past seasons. With no memory tasks, the switch in positions within the teams until the last ten minutes between the final three teams was crazy and absolutely memorable!!
I agree TAR 15 finale is great! The most exciting finale ever~
However, I think the finale this season is ok, except the last task is easier than I thought, the tasks/clues in the finale are generally hard and it takes time for teams to do, I especially like the typewriter task since it is more mental than physical. The problem is that the teams are spread with a long time lap between each other which killed all the suspense for the whole leg, but this is not foreseeable in the planning stage.
