Like totally +1. Also, them beating the Wolf and the Witch after a 2-hour deficit or so is just like the most A-Mazing thing I have seen in the show.

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.

I just finished watching it as well and I didn't like it early on because I got confused with all the teams, but once it got down to the Final 6 or 5, it got better since I knew the teams. The only thing I wish they didn't do was all the mid leg travels and stops.

I haven't watched Season 8 and i really don't want to do it. To me , it was a negative mark in TAR US history.

I agree. I have watched and re-watched every normal season. Yet, I refuse to watch Season 8. Its not what the race stands for, and its not something I am interested in watching. I am not just going to watch something because it has the Amazing Race title, it has to interest me.

Don't complain as long as you get a season of The Amazing Race. TAR 8 wasn't all bad for people who's not from USA, tyvm. I enjoyed TAR 8 more than TAR 9. :res:
