Dislike the new route info types. Intros fine.

I actually like the new RI/RB graphics but hate the intro. I'm probably the only one :lol:

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.

That would have been stupid. Fortunately, they only had to RENT ONE.

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.

They need more starting line tasks, the flags in s18 was a fav! Also, I just noticed the new RB font and it looks really slick!

You are so right, we need more of those, S19 was dumb though because it was just a trial and error task.

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.
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

AMEN to this! One hour is just not enough time...

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.

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

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

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!
