I have somehow lost interest in TAR... I have seen it from the first episode I saw which got me hooked, but S25, I stopped watching it, and I have seen nothing from S26... IDK, I feel something there is not fitting for me anymore, they need something fresh...
I would love to see more FFs, but more powers and even the Intersection so we can see, once again, more strategy and cooperation between teams. I feel that S4 and 5 were super nice, but I am not feeling hooked recently. Hopefully I watch some episodes this season and feel like watching it as in older seasons <3
I think what is going wrong in the "interest rates" is how there are not many moments to keep us asking NEW questions. It's almost always the same general thoughts now:
•Who will get Philiminated?
•Who will win the Leg/the race?
•Who will struggle the most in this task?
•Who will use the 2x U-Turn/who are the Double U-Turned?
•Will X&Y have another quarrel or will they be butter & bread?
In the pre-HD older seasons, we raised questions about various race and promotional moments that kept us engaged to see what will happen next. For example: season 14, along with the above wonders, had unique scenarios that hooked us for the next episode including original thrills like Swiss cheese hill and Austrian Folly.
•How far will Margie & Luke go in the race? (Pre-show promo)
•Does Linda find her way back to Steve in Leg 2?
•Can Tammy & Victor get out of the Romanian forest?
•Will Mark & Michael ever learn their lesson?
•How will Kisha & Jen and Margie & Luke treat each other after the body-check?
•Will the language barrier in the second half of Beijing mix the teams drastically?
