Not so much a change as such, but more a what NOT do to.
Please CBS, don't do what you did at the beginning of last nights episode. I want to see the Intro.
That is all. :lol:
I guess it's permanent now.  CBS gets an extra 30 second commercial I guess.
 (:;)

So anyway... what do you call what they did for that slow-mo Brenchel Detour montage?  Not just slow motion, but it was a more cinematic visual style that's standard on TARAu and TARC I believe.   I wish TAR would do that for entire episodes.

I was watching it like -  :wtf: when that happened. Really didn't like it!  :res:

I'm caling it the 'Survivor cut'.  :) Now I don't watch Survivor, so I don't know if they use it often (or use it at all), but I think it's appropriate for that scene. They where in the Bornean forest and Brendon & Rachel were in a task that was very tribal themed. I laughed when I saw it (particularly because Brendon & Rachel are now in the CBS's Big 3 reality shows). I liked it, but I don't think they should keep it unless it's used for specific things like this. Maybe production was just trying it out?

Yeah, not so much the slow motion, but a more cinematic look that you can see on TARAu or TARC. They look completely different from how TARUS looks, but them using the slow motion was the closest they've come to look like how TARAu/TARC look.  Which is one change I want to see them make.

I LOVED the Survivor montage. I wish they did it more often. The music, the slow mo effects. Really refreshing and a change to their normal editing. :funny:

- A classic format, like when teams finish a task and they get a departure time for the next leg. At least the 1st team eliminated gets to race for more than a day.

THIS. SOMEBODY HIT THE RIGHT NOTE.

This is the reason why I haven't been able to enjoy ANY PREMIERE since a long long time ago. When was the last time they did the departure thing. Was it in TAR 10?

I believe it was TAR14, because...
TAR24: wedding shops, nope.
TAR23: paragliding, nope.
TAR22: sandcastle leg, nope.
TAR21: lady with an abacus, nope.
TAR20: empaņadas, nope.
TAR19: the only season and only leg with a hazard, nope.
TAR18: tank roadblock, nope.
TAR17: watermelons! nope.
TAR16: cable roadblock, nope.
TAR15: wasabi! nope.
TAR14: cheese! iirc, the last one was 10 seasons ago! :ascared

Personally I don't think having a departure time will fix the situation with terrible leg 1s, there just needs to be really difficult tasks that are interesting and shake things up.

While I agree that I'd like for all teams to enjoy the Race and be able to race for more than a day, I wouldn't really call departure times a "racing day." In TAR14, for example, they arrived in Locarno and signed up. There were no tasks, just signing up. TAR 13, however, had teams do tasks, sign up and spend the night, and then do more tasks. That's what I call racing for more than a day.

Although, one could argue that with transportation, teams ARE technically "racing" for more than a day.

Part of me would actually like to see some fresh faces in the major behind the scenes roles who get what make the international versions of the show such as TARAus and TARCan such joys to watch. I don't know what the actual sort of licensing involved with doing tasks based on major franchises/cultural things for the Race are but there are so many iconic franchises that have become engraved in our culture outside of the USA, I mean you go over to England and You've got Top Gear, Doctor Who, Harry Potter. You go to Japan and you've got things like Dragonball Z, Pokemon, Nintendo. You go to Sweden, You've got Minecraft. Some of the locations are beloved by producers and that's fine but there is a point where a place becomes sort of stale especially when you revisit some of the locations so many times.
It's Clobbering Time!

Maybe we can have a roadblock version of an u-turn ,
which requires the racer who did not take part in the roadblock previously to complete the roadblock :o

i think it may cause some interesting dramas

I'm not against that idea, but I think it will make the roadblock count more confusing. :ascared

But what if some tasks can't be performed by some racers, like Big Easy? However, for the Roadblock count, the second Roadblock probably won't be added to the count.

I want RACING.

Teams using travel skills. Find a FERN. Make your way. And then SHOW us that. Don't make us wonder how Team XYZ got ahead or behind. If they got help from a local, SHOW us.

Teams who have to FIND/figure out the "Big Thunder".

Teams who have to FIND and BOOK their own flights, not production provided ones.

Great tasks that ALLOW for placement shifts. NON LINEAR legs. Every episode should have at least two ways for teams to catch up.

NEVER provide only two flights and separate them by 3 :dick hours. And if you do, make an hours of op right after, followed by some task that will shake things up.

SELF-Navigation. Use local transport more, self driving. (remember self driving?? ??? )
 
sigh....

Self navigation was one of my favourite parts of the show. Even in say season 17, two teams in Oman had been lost for ours on end, but still ended up in a foot (drive) race to the pit stop! I also miss the driving to the airport on leg 1 :(
Hope

They should've also informed us on the time credits on the beginning of the 2nd episode. :(

I want the INTRO INTRO INTRO.

I never thought I would be yelling about this on TAR. :res:

Hopefully they're preparing a cool new intro and the lack of full intros for the past eps are just placeholders.

For me, if they teams do have to fly to another city in the middle of a leg, it would be better if they have predetermined flight plans set up by production. It's because I prefer teams being evenly divided than going through a flight bottle neck in the middle of the leg, which would cancel out the front running teams' lead.

However, this season hasn't yet provided anything that evens out all of the teams at the start of the legs. Which is a bit sad and gives the teams in front too much of an advantage.  :( But, I understand that the two Malaysia legs were replacements so it could justify some things? How did we confirm this again?  ???

Both Malaysian legs were!? :faint: Does anybody have the source?
