Countries/Continents that made the worst/best legs : AFRICA
« on: March 24, 2013, 10:02:38 PM »
Well , every season we see people saying that the country was BAD used or "THE EPISODE IN THAT COUNTRY SUCKED".

Let's start off analysing by continents.Let's start with EUROPE.

What was the BEST EPISODE you saw in Europe , and what was the WORST EPISODE you saw in Europe?

MY OPINION :

Worst : Season 18 - Episode 8 in Austria , i hated that leg. The Roadblock was just too easy , and had no drama with the teams.
Best : Season 19 - Episode 8 in Denmark. I loved that one!!! Classic music Roadblock and easy Double U-Turn!  :hearts: :hearts: :hearts:


What do you guys think?

Season 6 and Season 18. I actually loved Season 18 Leg 8. The detours were hard and I loved that they had to drive from Vienna to Salzburg.

Worst: TAR 10 in Finland. Mud, cave, rappel. They could've gone pretty much ANYWHERE in the continent (or world) for those sets of tasks.

Best: TAR 3 in Grindelwald. Testing teams' travel skills, mental acuity, physical dexterity and endurance all in one leg? I love it.
Honorable mentions: TAR 17 in St. Petersburg (first Detour was great, second RB and miscellaneous tasks were great - they could've had the BEST LEG EVER with a bit of reconfiguration but they settled for two good legs), TAR 12 in Italy (difficult tasks + self navigation + several forms of transportation to cause people to get loopy and hateful toward each other? good times)

I loved season 6, mostly because it had a lot of good Europe legs, I especially liked Sweden (might be biased since it's my home country and the race happened within walking distance of where I live), and France. TAR 3&4 were not bad either. Of the recent series TAR 21 was really good, especially the legs in Russia, and the Denmark leg in TAR 19 worked well too. I hope for more visits to Denmark in more seasons.

Worst: I think TAR 10 in Finland. TAR 19 Episode 10 in Belgium 2 came close. I hate the Roadblock task, although the Detour is good.

Best: I think TAR 18 Episode 9. Austria -> Liechtenstein -> Switzerland. Measuring Liechtenstein is one of my favorite tasks in history of The Amazing Race!
TAR Greece: Soon. DTAR 2: Soon

I think Europe legs is one of the few things TAR have improved on.

TAR 18's legs were fantastic because the tasks were good, the locations were beautiful and there was some drama. I also LOVE night legs so that helped.

Similarly, TAR 16s were at night and had good teams in it as well as some interesting tasks.

TAR 17 and TAR 3 were also decent.
Jet and Cord are still the best!!! Bring them back!

TAR7's visit to London ranks as one of my favorite legs ever (though I don't get the boats).


And who can forget Ken & Gerard punting in Season 3?  :lol3:

I like season 7 and Rob and Amber on it too, however their use of a guide through the whole of that leg made a joke of it and may have been the lowlight of that season for me.
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.

How come Russia's only included some of the time? I know as a region part of it is in Asia, but politically the entire country is part of Europe.

TAR21's route was just terrible all around. First season ever to not visit a new country, and it was just pretty lame...

Finland and probably Ukraine are probably gonna be my choice for the worst ones, although i really like the Ukrainian pit stop location  :hoot:

I can't really find my favorite for the best because i really like when they visit Europe, since i'm living in Asia  :hrt:

LET'S MOVE ON TO AFRICA!

My favorite Africa leg : The leg 2 in Ghana (TAR17) . The selling roadblock was so <33333

My worst Africa leg : The first one of this TAR22.

I miss the days when they'd visit two African countries in a season.

The Madagascar leg of Season 10 was the worst African leg ever easily!
The best... hmm... thats too hard to decide. Season 6, 20, and 22 were really good.

Agreed. The only good part was  "We was lookin' like the Macy's Day parade" during the mattress task. But the Mauritius and Morocco legs were good. I'd honestly say the best could have been the first Africa leg ever! The first Tunisia leg. Also I'd say the second legin Ghana in S17 and Ethiopia in S6 are up there as well.
