Most overrated season?
« on: May 09, 2012, 02:26:09 AM »
I did a search and couldn't find anything so hopefully no thread on this yet. :)

Season 2 (being part of what is considered the classic period) I think is very overrated.  The cast were so unmemorable to me, no big characters like the seasons either side of it.  Just felt like it had quite shallow, boring or stereotypical characters.  In fact of the early seasons (up to and including 7) I like all the odd numbered ones the most (haven't seen season 4 though).

Are u kidding? Danny and Oswald! Great legs in Brazil, Namibia, Australia and New Zealand.

Mmm overrated, huh..? Guess i'll have to go with Season 5, but that's just because it's the best season of the "Classic Period".

I just didn't find them funny, just seemed a bit stereotypical if anything.  The focus was on them but I wasn't interested.

I haven't seen 4 and 19 but reading around I thought they weren't rated that much anyway.

you know the meaning of the word overrated right?

For me Season 9, All-Stars and Season 13. Why call it Season 11 All-Stars when there is only one champion team (and one fake team to boot)?

Yeh, overrated means that quite a few people rate something very highly but someone disagrees with that.

Sorry I snapped like that. Anyways, I think the problem with Season 19, was too many roadblocks, and some people disliked Cindy's A-grade student comment.

Season 17. It's seriously one of my least favorite seasons. And Season 9. And maybe Season 10, just because of how annoying the alliance was.

Season 2 is my favorite. :lol:

I'd say it's Season 3 for me, honestly. Other than John Vito & Jill and Ken & Gerard, none of the teams were very likeable for me. Great route though, and the Zurich Detour (Count the Money or Run the Numbers) is still one of my favorite tasks ever, but as a whole, I can't really get engaged in this season.

There weren't very good team dynamics and the route was a little lame with two legs in every country. Also the episodes were a little boring with easier tasks and not too many lead changes, especially the finale.

I agree! 19 is one of my least favorites. The legs were just unbearable. Waste of country opportunities like Indonesia, Malawi, Denmark & Belgium. The uturns were not utilized well too. And no FF.
Ironically, I enjoyed the leg 5 in Thailand. When they went to Bangkok they had no idea of their placements. There was an element of surprise and thrill who will be first place.
I don't think 19 is overrated tho. Atleast, no one yet is overrating it.

19 is the worst season, without any doubt. But I don't think it's particularly overrated.

For me, most overrated season might have to be either TAR10 or TAR14. I just despised the TAR10 cast (except the Queens of course, as well as Peter & Sarah and some early exits) and for TAR14, I found it exceptionally dull at certain points, with yet another abysmal winning team. :res:

I don't think there was anyone who really annoyed me.  Flo may have annoyed some but most of the time I thought she was alright.  Often the men are the weakest point in the worst seasons I think and I was able to tolerate them in this.  Ian was cantankerous at times but somehow could be funny.

Some mentioned 14 and that feels overrated I think.  Though I was able to watch it all whereas I struggled with 2, so I wouldn't say most overrated.  But Victor was so annoying in Translyvania and was one of those arrogant men who can tarnish some seasons.  I know we kept getting told how he had learnt his lesson, but I'll decide for myself on that.  And then there was Luke, pushed as a nice disabled guy early on I was never convinced about him being nice and much preferred those against him on the race.

I LOVED Season 17. Had a GREAT route with the Russian Mystery leg and Oman and Bangladesh. Also, it had a very well-balanced cast.

Chad and Nick weren't great though, must have annoyed some.
