It really depends on what you look for in a season whether it be entertaining teams, great route, interesting tasks or decent winners. I don't 100% agree with anyone's ranking here, which makes me ask what aspects of the race makes a season more enjoyable for you?

The cast is the most important thing, it made TAR21 (well the boot order is more to credit in TAR21 than anything else) bearable instead of ohmygodhorrid.

This is also why TAR 24 is the worst season in HD so far. TAR24 might have some interesting task (Malaysia 2 Detour and some tasks in Sri Lanka IMO) but could not make up for the horrible cast (Threepeaters and many deserved teams are snubbed out), predictable boot order, and the horrible route (First 8 Legs only cover 4 countries, Western Europe overdose IMO, rumour Africa/Oceania leg cancelled.)

TAR24 had some likeable teams but none of them made it far

TAR25>TAR22>TAR18 are pretty much Top Tier seasons, then there would be a gap with TAR23>TAR20>TAR19, and then place 21>24 in some of the worst seasons ever.

Regarding TAR21 though, the cast was pretty solid (upon rewatch I liked almost everyone except the winners and the monster truckers as well as the first boots :lol:) but the legs overall and winner just left a really bad taste after the season aired. If they had a better winner (any of the entire final six tbh) and legs, the season could easily have been one of my favorite seasons ever. The only leg I fully remember was the Finale as well as the hot mess of Shanghai 1 <3 :lol:

I would definitely say that entertaining teams can't carry a season on their own, the same way a good route and tasks can't carry a good season (TAR Philippines Season 2 :res:).

I definitely think the best seasons are the ones that have a "little bit" of entertaining teams, great route, amazing tasks, a good (not necessarily the best team) winner, and a little bit extra added regarding a few of those factors.

I mean, TAR8 was a perfect example of that, and I don't even know why it's considered one of the "worst seasons ever". Sure they were only in the USA, but the cast was really good, we had decent winners, and for what it was worth, the US had some good tasks.

I agree as I loved TAR 8 mainly because of the cast, but the tasks themselves in the US were not good and about 75% of them were linear so it's a big stretch to say the tasks were good

The tasks weren't good except for the New Orleans leg or whichever had prawns and Panama/Costa Rica

hence the word some :P

I actually really liked Leg 2 to 3 [Civil War Detour and Shrimp Detour] as well as Panama/Costa Rica's entirety <3

Finale was also not bad <3
