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.

The Route Info and Roadblock graphics, no. The new logo, yes. The new intro, no.

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:

And head turns :res:

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

Someone should hire a new route creator and editors FOR REAL!

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.

Not sure how I feel about them yet. Maybe I'll decide in a few episodes.

Just rewatched. Love the logo and the map/globe.

HATE the RB typeface and graphic.**shudders**

The roadblock and route info have blackish background and then animated lines following the black background... hard to explain

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.

I like the new graphics a lot, its truly a 1080 pixel view with high surround sound quality of the theme.

Loved everything to do with graphics except the music! It just is not as magical as the previous intro theme. :(
