TAR 21 or 22 Suggestions
« on: May 16, 2012, 03:25:32 AM »
If you were the TAR producers, what would you change and/or improve for TAR 21 and TAR 22? Just curious.

The Visit-every-country-twice-in-a-season thing. I want more countries, space them out, I don't like the flight bunching.
Can we get some white belts in here this is horrible

They can't really control flight bunching. For example, I don't think there are that many flights between Munich and Baku, and its logical for all teams to take the earliest flight. Also sometimes, to remote places, they are not many logical flights.

TAR20 was a HUGE improvement from TAR19! But there is always room for improvement  :tup:

TAR19 had THREE two-legs-in-one-country (Indonesia, Thailand, Malawi), Denmark and Belgium each got one-and-a-half legs.
Basically, TAR19 spent way too much time in very few countries, however I will count out Leg 5 (Thailand) as we suspect it was a last minute planned leg.

TAR20 had THREE two-legs-in-one-country (Argentina, Tanzania, India), which were all previously visited countries. But other than those 3 countries, they managed to visit 5 other countries (2 of those first visits), which was a breath of fresh air  :wohoo:

If WRP want to make the best route possible for TAR21/TAR22, I think they should follow the same route of TAR17, i.e.
- TWO two-legs-in-one-country
- diverse locations
- at least 4 continents
- new locations

Make more fun & tougher fast forwards. 4 or 5 FFs. This would give opportunity to other teams to be first place. And provide different placements. So there'll be no more boring first place dominations like seasons 20, 19, 15, 13, etc.

Tougher roadblocks. More polarizing or deceiving detours. Create motivations for the teams to use the u-turn. Like saying the first 3 teams to finish the leg will receive cash prizes.

Let's see:

-Start somewhere else than California
-Leave India and China out of the race (for one or two seasons)
-At least two or three new countries
-Have 2 legs in these new countries (cause it got me thinking: why do they had two legs in India and only one in Paraguay and Azerbaijan considering that these were first time visits?)
-Have a leg with an Intersection
-Visit countries that haven't been visited in a looooong time or only been visited once before.
-3 Fast Forward and try to add one more to catch teams off-guard.
-End somewhere else than California

- Revert back to Pre-HD TAR editing, where Phil's voice is deep. Starting TAR 19, he started to almost yell and extend his arms like Allan Wu. :|
- Put epic music. Pre-HD TAR has a ton of exciting music, compared to now. I compared the past 12 finale introductions, and I found the S19 and S20 to be less exciting.
- Avoid the sunlight transition. ANNOYING.

Slow down, and bring back the old style of the Amazing Race. For ex, when introducing the detour/roadblock show the envelope like older seasons!

I noticed this from the very first episode of Season 18. It was a really noticeable change!

It almost came to pass in season 11 (TARAS) and there were those who thought it might happen after teams were sent to Ursala, Argentina, but a leg or two in Antarctica would be an interesting change of pace. (And there are scheduled charter flights available to islands off of the Anarctic mainland coast, there were when TAR 11 was filmed, and no one would see it coming. (And TAR has since made it to the Arctic Circle in Norway and Sweden,) so it would make sense to try for it.)

They stopped doing that because they thought that people would already know what was the deal with Roadblocks and Detours.
But i agree with the way Phil narrates the legs and tasks. He sounds so..enthusiastic? And before he was more stoic.

Yep, he really do sound enthusiastic.... which I don't kinda like. :lol: I don't know, but I don't feel the thrill by this narration. I like the kinda mysterious and coolly and deep

I agree on this and staying in a place makes them lazy as well I think as they sometimes cram less into the individual legs when they stay somewhere.


Reality Fan Forum, where 'enthusiasm' is completely redefined as not meaning having an interest in and having something to say but as having to be completely positive even about aspects of something you disagree on.  So both the fan and forum (discussion) aspects are prescribed/limited.

Unfortunately, Coutzy and tarflyonthewall will follow them so heavily, the leg will be spoiled right down to a T. They still have nightmares about what happened in TAR18.

Having watched every season of TAR, I would like it if they went back to the earlier seasons..
- 13 Legs
- As already suggested, pre HD voiceovers
- Slow it down!!!!!! - The first few seasons were so good because it wasn't intense 100% of the time, and therefore the intense moments were highlighted!

A few other things
- More night-time legs - The last episode that I can remember having a decent proportion at night was in TAR 18, in Austria..., This was an awesome leg, and I think having it at night makes it more intense. ... So more night legs! (Out of curiosity, am I the only one who likes night legs??)
-NO MORE RECRUITED TEAMS FROM OTHER REALITY SHOWS - THEY HAVE HAD THERE TURN.
- Make the detours and roadblocks more intense - I hate it how the tasks have become so easy! There are so many challenges that you cant not complete, such as the 'helicopter rescue' roadblock in TAR 20. There have been some ripping tasks that require thinking/skill (FRANZ, Measuring Liechtenstein, Haybales, Making a Dinosaur) but there are not enough.
- Get rid of all the technology!

I loved TAR 18 so much because it had so much of the above (Night legs, slow pace, hard challenges), and although seeing old teams wasn't everyones forte (I loved it!), i think that season 18 has to be the benchmark for challenges and editing.

Thoughts?
Jet and Cord are still the best!!! Bring them back!
