 :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.

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...
