I need to watch back TAR4.

Titles for episodes are often taken from quotes made by the racers.

"Cheaters Never Win...And They Cheated!" – Sheree
"It Doesn't Say Anything About First Come First Served...And We're Bigger" – Reichen
"I Wasn't Even Going To Touch You Until You Slammed My Head Backwards" – Millie
"Check Your Tires Because...Oh God, You Never Know What'll Happen!" – Steve (of Steve & Dave)
"You Are Just Deliberately Trying To Make Us Lose!" – Jaree
"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
"We're Not at Charm School Learning How to Be a Gentleman, We're Racing" – Jon (of Kelly & Jon)
"That's Me. That's My Face. Just Hit My Face. Hit My Face!" – Jon (of Kelly & Jon)
"Such a Nice Pheromone Smell to You; Just Makes Me Want to Stay Close to You" – Jon (of Kelly & Jon)
"He's A Couple Of Ticks Away From Having A Heart Attack" – Jon (of Kelly & Jon)
"It's Like Adam Building His First House!" – Kelly

Kelly & Jon goddessess <3 Back in the time episode title quotes were still good <3

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
The story so far:
In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move

IKR. :res: :lol:

I especially like these ones:

"We're Going Down The Wrong Side Of The Freeway...And The Lights Are Off!" – Tian
"That's Me. That's My Face. Just Hit My Face. Hit My Face!" – Jon (of Kelly & Jon)
"It's Like Adam Building His First House!" – Kelly

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.

Uhm Season 4 was epic cus it had Kelly & Jon. #js

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 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.
Oh my gravy , Jet and Cord are still the best!

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:

You get used to the different dynamic of families rather than teams of 2 as it goes on.  And individuals do stand out even though they are teams of 4.  Also people who like ridiculous arguments should like it, plenty of drama though more within families than between them.  I really wondered how some of these families actually live together in real life.  :D  The fact that it wasn't all around the world didn't bother me that much because there are some good locations, probably better than season 21.

TAR 8 is one of the best seasons for me, maybe it was seeing all the places I've been to and that all of the teams were amazing.

I love TAR 8 it's actually one of my faves but I would have rather seen big cities like Chicago, LA, San Fran, Boston, etc.

I'm fine with them avoiding big cities. I just can't tell any of the legs from Arizona to Montana apart. :lol: All the scenery looked the same to me. :(
