I LOVE the map and globe, it seems lighter, brighter, and fresher!

I think the graphics are fine, but the toned-down music does NOT fit in the intro.

I like the music, but it should be stronger, it reminds me of TAR Israel's intro music.

No in every aspect :(

The intro seems really fast. But it's probably because I haven't got used to it. I also don't like it when they change the intro in Season 14 (but honestly TAR 14's intro is the worst intro), but it gets better each season. I actually miss the old intro, especially the epic headturn on Teri & Ian's intro. <333

The new graphics for Roadblock, Route Info, etc is :nono2:

Listening to the intro on the HDTV with earphones (since I hear more background music on shows that way) the newest version of the theme moves back in the direction of the original version of the theme, with the addition of some non-western instruments, much as Bear McCreary did with Battlestar Galactica theme with non-western instruments completely.
I like both the title card and the music more than I liked the version that was used from season 14 to 22. I need to rewatch the episode as to the intro, and other graphics, but my DVR is busy with recording four other shows tonight (two on Showtime) and I'll have to wait until the DVR lets me replay TAR later tonight.
I did notice the return of the Amazing Yellow Line on the new 3D globe illustrating the flight from LAX to Chile, and it was nice to see its return from exile.

Love the new logo graphics, it's a lot more brighter with great value and modernized. The intro, honestly, all of us can agree it is better than the TAR22 blandness.

New route info clues and "call for first clue" reaction: :barf

Loved it all! :) New intro music felt more like so-called "classic TAR", and I actually really like the maps and travel images imposed in the background shots in the intro.

9 seasons is a long time to keep those graphics the same, really. It was due for a change.

Just Rewatch it in HD and...

Still not a fan of the sudden color spots in the intro, I really like the logo though, looks really nice to me.

All of the locations graphic looks really overdone to me, they are too distracting and have way too much stuff on them. But I did like the overall shape of it.

The TAR 22 "blandness" you talk about is weird imo. I loved the intro. CaroJen's intro shots were wonderful, Maxie's intro shot, YouTube's intro shot, Mona/Beth, Banthony, I liked the TAR 22 intro compared to well, TAR 16 intro.

Wow. I liked both, actually! I didn't think the clue icons were very distracting, either.

The new intro is so epic! Especially the music at the last part where it shows the mash up of all the different locations. :colors

What really bothered me was the Starting Line cowboy randomness (best way I could describe it). Why in the world did TAR feel a need to build a whole movie set for a Starting Line when they could have just started in a REAL amazing place in the USA? Honestly, that was just stupid. :groan:

For the most part, I like the new graphics.  As for the intro, the graphics of it are very interesting but I wish they used the original version of the music for the intro.  I can recognize the music even in the remix, but the remix is jarring.

They haven't had any epic finishing or starting lines for many seasons so far. :(

Didn't like the starting line either. I missed those times where they used helicopters to transport the teams to the starting line. SO GRAND.

The Old West town set is an existing movie stage set, and was used for the day; it's easy enough to rent horses and stagecoaches in Southern California, and it also explains why we weren't able to find the start line when filming started.

But the "call the number" to get the first clue -- that was a neat way of promoting Ford's version of OnStar....which also allows you to call from your GMC or Chevy truck,

I have rewatched the first part of the episode, and I do hear a strong callback to the original version of the TAR theme, as used before season 12. The additional non-western instruments are added, and give it a more global feel. So yes to the intro; and we ought to be able to identify the new font for the on-screen clue summaries. They are a different font, but I didn't find them to be a jarring change.
And as I pointed out before, I'm so glad to see the return of the truly amazing yellow line (AYL) as it was known before season 13. It's like seeing an old friend you hadn't seen in a long while.

I think they should try another 90-minute premiere, with the first half hour spent in the starting line task and the "meet the teams" interviews and the other hour on the actual leg.

It was more gold in color than the AYL last night.

I think they've been trying to bring back more of the production elements of the early seasons, we even had some erratic drunken cameramen visual effects in the intro before the teams were being introduced.

And as proof that production is in fact going retro, take a look at an HD quality clip of the season 2 intros -- you will clearly see the added in background of a mercator projection style global map that was superimposed faintly onto that season's teams clips. The passports this season seem to be the same sort of element.

Is it though? To me, it looks just like Bank Gothic for the task description and an italicized Microgramma for the "Route Info" text.



By the way, where else in the world -- other than the graphics/editing room -- do people discuss what font TAR uses? :P

Just double checking. Is the amazing yellow line the map that shows where the teams are flying to.

That is correct

Winning isn't everything, but it isn't considered nothing either. Otherwise, there wouldn't be a tribal council, a pit-stop, a boardroom, dimming of the lights, and so on

I thought the new intro song was leaning a little too much on "Asian" instruments, so much so that it sounded a little like the Amazing Race Asia's promotional video music!
Found out that Neobie in Chinese means "f*king awesome"! No, really. Look it up!

I almost wonder if TPTB knew they were going to update the graphics this season regardless, or if maybe it was prompted by The Voice winning the Emmy this year?

I doubt the Emmy results had anything to do with it. The lead time the editors need is far more than a week, and between the revised theme, the updated graphics, and the new fonts, and the new set of background graphics for the opening credits, they couldn't have done all of that in a week, or 2 weeks, it would have taken longer.

I loved it all, surprisingly, but I can't be the only person that misses Microgramma right?

(tbh the worst element in recent memory visually was the oversized U-Turn/Speed Bump signs but I doubt those will change)

Graphics were a fine upgrade, but changing the intro so much just completely destroyed the feeling that this was the reality show I watched 9 years ago. (The logo, mainly) Not going to lie, by the just starting line and intro alone, I completely gave up on this show.

The intro music sounds weird to me at first, but I have gotten used to it. The beginning part of the intro, which it show "THE AMAZING RACE", honestly sounds like the beginning of a news report, combining with the intro music, but I love that they put a closer Earth view behind the title. After that, the intro sounds perfect to me, not too much of reusing the old shots from older seasons (well they use it in a good way that makes the intro look more perfect.), awesome background music that makes whole intro dramatic and cinematic. The another 2 turndowns of the intro are less intense music comparing with the intro from season 14-22, and Jason sneaking out on the scene (it scares me at first! Lol).

The new graphic...hmmm..., I love and hate it. The black background sounds cool and make me easier to read the words. However, it looks cheap at the same time; it sounds like a 3D version of what those home productions will put their lower thirds on. And also it loses the color that indicates what kinda tasks it is: blue (route info) and red (roadblock). I'm really curious about how the Detour will look like.

Overall, the change towards to the good side. I love the show! =]

What comes to my mind the first time I hear the intro is that maybe they were trying to mix it with some traditional instruments from some destinations in the world that they've been going through...

Just like that Survivor intro who mix it with some tribe's music where ever the show was filmed... We can notice them obviously that every seasons the intro was changed (even though the main theme is still there) but they mix it a little with the local instruments..

For the graphics, I think I like them, it's just a bit hard for the leg designers to use it in their fantasy game :P

Like the new globe graphics and the new logo in the credits. The rest, not so much. The task title graphics are particularly awful - having made graphics for TV in the past (yay film degree), avoiding huge blocks of dark shades is basically the first rule of making graphics in colour, and putting relatively dark shades of red and blue on top of it doesn't help. The Detour graphic is slightly better, but still pretty terrible.
