I need to watch back TAR4.

"I Could Have Never Been Prepared For What I'm Looking At Right Now" – Reichen
"We're Going Down The Wrong Side Of The Freeway...And The Lights Are Off!" – Tian
"The Princess Reminded Me of My Grandmother. She Was Very Old But Still Very, Very With It" – David

I liked four because it was my gateway Season, but compared to five: four was definitely more about the course while five was more about the teams

I managed to finish 8 (the family edition) and actually it was much better than I expected after the disappointment of the first 3 episodes or so, and they do travel to central America and Canada.  The locations overall are quite good, better probably than the last season.  Some tasks are quite good with some drama, like driving the car through the mud.  Some tasks maybe are too easy but there is quite a lot of drama between teams.  A problem could be that there aren't that many teams to root for.  Loved Karissa though and it would have been great if they'd had a non-elimination leg.  Maybe Karissa and her brother could come back as a team eventually to see how they are once grown up?  After them the father and daughters team would probably have been my preferred winners, I didn't like who won.  There was a bit too much emphasis on the Weavers perhaps, though they had a role and their emphasis on their faith could be funny.  The Paolo family were good baddies, the arguments were actually funny.  So as I got to know the teams it became surprisingly watchable.  I might even have to put it above some others like 6, 21, 2.

I agree (maybe not with referring to the Paolos as baddies, but they were still entertaining.)


I think a lot of the "The Family Edition is terrible! It's the worst season ever!" is said by people who haven't seen it and are just echoing what they have seen. I guess 8 seasons into the show it might have been the worst, but I think it has aged fairly well.
