I don't know what show you guys were watching, I thought this was absolutely spectacular. I mean, when you compare this to shows like TAR Vietnam, TAR Ukraine and even a little bit to TAR Latin America, this stands above them. Good image quality, upbeat and colourful teams, good challenges, and STRUCTURE.
Sure we can see the cameramen, but I don't really care. I think that when the show tries to cut out EVERY image of a cameraman, then we lose too much. We're not kids any more, so we don't need the 'illusion' that cameramen don't exist.
I also loved how they weren't afraid to show off fans of the show and people talking about the fact that they were on the show. It's more realistic and it just made me smile.
Now, on a serious note, I am having way too much trouble telling Luichang and Jin Dachuan apart. The Wiki says that Jin did both Roadblocks, but I'm not so sure about that. Can anyone confirm?
Also, I'm going to be writing extensive wiki things soon, and unfortunately I can't read Chinese websites. If anyone can find the contestants' hometowns and ages, I would be very very grateful!
I appreciate your encouragement to Shenzhen's version. It's just that the fact that China Rush has been a very good example to which Shenzhen's version is not comparable at all frustrates many fans...
