Looking back, the Tower of Hanoi head-to-head was anticlimactic across the board and felt so cheap compared to how they edited the wood-stacking Detour task. It was like watching Phil narrate a backyard game with no emotional toll once it got down to the "Big Brother 12" duel. :-[

This might be an unpopular opinion but I loved S28's Dubai visit. The only self-drive of the season and it really brought out the worst of some teams (cough, Dana & Matt) Racers these days are so lucky they don't have to deal with too much self-navigation.
Don't forget Maria & Tiffany had transmission troubles during their first Dubai leg. A car not working properly is like the end of the world to some teams (aka Kynt & Vyxsin).

I really hate the boring episode title quotes these days.

They're better than the title quotes Survivor uses though it does bug me when they use phrases from clues as the title quote.

Does the show just prefer simple titles? Or are Racers that boring now compared to earlier season Racers who were always quotable.

They had no choice to show it, if not you cant explain why the two teams checked together at the same time and just J/B be eliminate

I think they kept the Head to Head here just so they could include the #MomSquad moment at the end. And the whole idea of two BB teams and friends having to face off against each other for elimination. I would guess if it were any other teams, they'd have edited it out here too.

They sped through the other matches in a way that was the minimum in order to have it make sense and allow them to use all that footage between the Reillys and Janelle & Britney at the end.

I wish this head to head was cut from the episode, too, and we saw more from each team during the episode instead.
... also we wouldn't have had to endure Phil's cringeworthy attempt at impersonating Jeff Probst.

But overall, both of these episodes seemed much weaker than the Vietnam legs to me:/ Maybe it was the lack of suspense, but the tasks as a whole were pretty boring. Uganda really could have used a second leg, I don't understand why they didn't stay there longer.

The Uganda Leg was much better than the Dubai Leg.
But the deleted scenes from the Uganda Leg seem so much more interesting and exciting than most of what made the episode.

And the Head-to-Head would've been great earlier in the Leg.

Lol after every single episode it's the same reaction.
"oOoh we were so close to a meltdown but Colin was calm I bet he'll go crazy next week!1!!!1"

They're not the same people they were 15 years ago, time to accept that.
