For once I have to agree with the critics: TH is a trip to dullesville. What a poorly constructed show and such lame "acting" by the teams. I wonder how many times they reshot scenes to get just the right type of reaction. The location producers must be working overtime. Nothing strikes me as "real"; everything strikes me as contrived. And all those pre-recorded, post-production additions of our "host" giving instructions on their cell phones is as phoney as it can be. And all that background thumping, pinging, electronic excuse for music is just annoying as all get out.
My guess is that once the ratings come in, this show is a dead duck. The teams may get to Washington and Boston but that is as far as they will go.
Here all the teams are way apart in Alaska and Hawaii but all of the teams in each group arrive at the State Capitol Building in Lincoln, Neb. at exactly the same time. Coincidence? Who cares?
And if you really want to predict the elimination order, just look at all the preview scenes and figure out which teams are where in the future episodes.
Now I can relax and concentrate on TAR's return in September.
