Or do you think it would be a bad idea no matter what?

Tbh season 8 was one of the first ones I watched back in AXN latinoamerica and it wasnt an alien concept to me so I really like it even though it was focus mostly on the US territory.

The geographic limitation, plus the decision to lower the age of the kids from 15 to 8 is what messed that format up; it's telling that even the teams that season thought they'd be going to other continents and that wasn't the game plan.

Family of three, ten teams, travel out of the US. Yes.

Same format as TAR 8... no. :(

This is probably my ideal Family Edition. 10 teams of 3 that can travel outside the US. They don't necessarily have to completely go around the world, but most of it should be outside the US.

Actually, I really enjoyed Season 8. I liked every aspect of it. I know, shocking right?

We see all around the world all the time, but seeing what America itself had to offer was a really nice change of pace. The increased emphasis on self-driving was nice as well. I liked having pre-teens and young teens on the show. I loved the four-person team set up. I thought the challenges were intriguing and interesting, and the locations were varied enough to keep my interest.

As long as there aren't too many repeat locations, I would give a big, resounding yes to an exact repeat of the TAR8 formula.

Somewhere in the "Phil in the News" Thread, there's an interview with Phil and the other hosts who were nominated for the reality hosting Emmy (I think), where the interviewer asked them if there was something they wish their show hadn't done, and Phil said that he wished they hadn't done Family Edition (but that they were proud that they at least tried). He said the hardest part was having to eliminate the young children. :(

So if Phil's not on board, I wouldn't get your hopes up. :(

The Family Edition's problems were IMO partly structural and partly self-inflicted (with a dash of bad luck tossed in).  With that many contestants running around, often not referred to individually by name, it's difficult to get to know em and relate in any way to them.  (I still can't name any of the Bransen sisters, and they finished the race!).   Also, so few teams relative to the number of legs led to a loooong time wandering around the west without an elimination. 

As to that route, TAR Canada showed me just how compelling a journey that never leaves a country could be, and such a route mostly in the USA should have been at least as interesting.  Instead we got the world's largest office chair and the a red Lodge Mountain Golgotha Course.

We'll not see another family edition.  But if the producers were for some reason determined to make it work: 
1.  Make it a completely separate "series"' like the international versions.  That might reduce unflattering comparisons with the original.  maybe a summer series, although Big Bother seems to claim much of the CBS summer timeslots.
2.  Spoilers be damned.  Pick the most interesting route, regardless of who might spot the racers along the way.
We can put a man on the moon, so why can't we have a Fast Forward in every leg?

I never notice that but you are right... I can name a few racers back of Family Edition, Bill, Billy, Carissa and Tammy Gaghan for example but I couldn't tell you the name of the Linz family or the Godwlesky family (I'm totally butchering that name btw)... I think you strike the point, too many people for the amount of air time....

I really don't think TAR 8 was that bad and winch whenever somebody complains about it. Maybe it was boring in USA but for the rest of the world, I got exposed to huge amounts of American culture and history, which was equally enriching and fun to watch.

Maybe a race across the US would work, but adding teens and children to the mix is asking for disaster (as in having to make everything easier and safer)

It was the legs in the midwest especially where I had to force myself to watch the whole hour.

If they did another, The Amazing Race Canada showed how a 1-country route CAN work...when it's done right. Maybe not a family-edition, though.

When I first heard it wasn't leaving the country, I will admit I thought "this is going to be as lame as Amazing Race 8", but it wasn't, it was far better. The challenges were tough, on par with and exceeding those on The Amazing Race (with teams of 2, of course) and the variety of landscapes and cultures was enough to keep it fresh and interesting the whole way through.

I think it unlikely, but it could work. No kids under 12 or maybe even 16. They could have visited more interesting places and had better challenges. Yall (southernism) are right I can mostly remember last names only, and not all of those. It was way too many people. More cultural and historical stuff would have been good, especially in the challenges.

I think a Family Edition would still work.  At the time, people were just so disgusted at a USA-only Race even though the Route was fine.  Other countries have done fine with in-country Races.
Plus, TAR8 still has one of the best casts.  Certainly tops most of the casts post-TARAS.

If every team has the same age, maybe it can work. I don't like a team with 20 years, other with 30 and the others with 14... We know this is a big difference between teams.

Travel around US is fine, but with some legs out US would be great too.
They can go to South America, Japan, Australia, some Europe countries like Portugal, Spain, UK..., and Canada.

I think a Family Edition every 10 International Seasons can work! xD

The Family Season wasn't what some hoped it would be, and I think there were several causes"

It limited itself to North America, and even the cast that season expected it would be a global race like the others that preceded it.

Because of that it was adversely impacted by a number of tropical cyclones throughout filming that season, and that didn't do anyone any favors. (Of course, that season had more tropical cyclones than any n the Atlantic, ever (28).

And I thought lowering the age limit down to 8 years of age really hampered the tasks, and the locations, and having teams of four didn't seem to help things either.

So as much as I liked the cast that season, just no.

I'm actually very neutral towards another Family Edition. I liked the idea of it and was excited to watch the season, but I just.... expected something else and was kind of disappointed... :/ I guess I'd just rather see regular races with good casts and no hasty AS seasons like the one upcoming -.-

They can go to South America, Japan, Australia, some Europe countries like Portugal, Spain, London..., and Canada.

 :knuckles:  HUSH!  We do not speak of "The TAR Season That Is Never Mentioned".   (:;) Nuff said.   :lala

TAR8 is actually a good season? It's seriously gold right now, the casting was great, the tasks were pretty good, and it was/is basically TAR:All Around America. It holds up MUCH better now.

TAR8 tasks sucked and 99% of the entertainment was derived because of the Weavers.

I liked the beans and the Spy task and some others :P

The Weavers though <3

How could you forget Paolos, Linzes, Godlewskis, and Gaghans? They were all starts <33333 This season had one of the best casts ever TBH.

Weavers +Paolos then, but the majority of the rest was people arguing with the Weavers :P

Um Gaghans were separate and amazing and Godlewskis had problems with themselves that made them fab and entertaining, this leaves the Linzes which I will say are derived from Weaver hate.

Gaghans were fab but they got eliminated before the pathetically boring part so they don't count and I found the Linzes more entertaining than the Godlewskis :X

If you asked me after the 1st All-Stars, I would have said yes, but having the regular format with only family teams. At that time, family teams often did very poorly.

But now, I would have to say no.

Billy and Carissa would be an Amazing team!! That would be fun, Tammy. Might have to wait a few more years on Carissa though? I am still in shock she is off to college!!

I think another Family Edition could work if they used returning teams:colors

Returning teams as in siblings/father-daughter/mother-daughter/etc. but with 2 more family members. That way each family could be likable as they have 2 family members we have already come to love!

I'm kind of late to the party, but I could see it working if they tweaked the format a little bit.

Instead of four-player teams, keep it to two-player. And while I liked the idea of the younger kids racing, perhaps the age limit could still be lowered. Not to pre-teen years, but 16/17 at the least. That way they could still do some of the challenges and could do a little more. It seemed as though the later challenges in the season weren't child-friendly.

And make it so that they go around the world, too. Other than that... Summer filming.

I love the idea of a sorta "Family Edition" again with some tweaks.

Stick to the basic TAR format, teams of two.

There are tons of family combos we have not/or only rarely seen.

InLaw variations
Aunts Or Uncles +Nieces or Nephews
Parent/Child (always good)
Adoptive Siblings
Cousins
Married Couples w/some sort of interesting story

The variations are endless, so a season made of family members would be fine by me!

I wouldn't mind teams like these. Gives things a little flavor, and it's as stale as your usual "parent/sibling" or "married couple" teams. No offense to them, obviously...
