LOL, I guess I'll just put my 'dislike Hayley' on the shelf next to my 'like Dave & Connor' and be proud of being different? XD

It's ok. I liked Dave and Connor to
HOWE DOES HE DO THAT?

I think I need a gif of Matt in his ladyboy outfit when he smiled at the camera...

Ironically, when some said that the premiere of s28 was the one of the best premiere, it was only scored 5.8 on imdb...

While the finale 24 was scored 8 on imdb...

The Double Roadblock for Tanner & Josh at leg 9 TAR 27 wasn't a speedbump, but was a handicap which was used in TAR Norway as a penalty for last team in NEL legs

I always refer to IMDB when looking at episode ratings for TV shows, but I NEVER use it for TAR, coz the scoring for TAR is just all over the place  :groan:

I miss when pre-season confessionals were at the teams' homes or their own spots instead of having them all take place in the same wooded area.  I was watching the Season 17 pre-season interviews for each team and I seriously miss the way they used to format season premieres.  "The 11 teams are..."

I hate the way they introduce teams (this started in Season 26--they just randomly cut to introduce teams while the race is in action), so annoying!

Yeah :/

I could understand the reasoning for it for 29 or 26 (considering the former's cast is all-strangers and the latter had some strangers), but there was simply no excuse for that to occur on 27-28. Completely weird and makes the tone feel off (and in 27's case, completely ruins the momentum of the Starting Line Task).

I think the Season 28 premiere is underappreciated.  Yes, there's no classic starting line.. Yes, it starts off very gimmick-y, but a night Detour, HoO, and a Roadblock all in one leg?!  And all three tasks are actual tasks, compared to like, that Roadblock in 24's premiere (the weird one with the spinning nonsense). 

And a big big plus to those who hate the new editing style:  ALL ELEVEN teams are actually shown picking up clues and completing the tasks (I'm pretty positive on this one... I just rewatched the premiere the other day :lol: ).

The fact that Bill & Cathi could've won a leg several times :(

Leg 2:  If they didn't mess up at the orphanage (they would've gone from 11th to 1st :o )
Leg 5:  If they just ran to the Pit Stop and beat Amani & Marcus
Leg 8:  I don't remember this leg too well, but maybe if Ernie & Cindy didn't U-Turn they might've had a chance ???

I miss Phil's voice over narration about the Pit Start city at the beginning of the episode. When did he stop doing it since I notice it's been gone in 29? :P

Season 26 I believe, so they could focus on all the "romance"

If there's ONE thing that makes the recent seasons better than Seasons 15-17, it's the fact that they still change the intro clips!  I hope they never stop (if there's a season 30.. :( )

I haven't watched TAR13 in years so I decided to click on it on Hulu and binged through the first couple of Legs up to Cambodia and really enjoyed them. I've always had TAR13 as a middling season on my all-time list but I really enjoyed the locations, the tasks and there was definitely plenty of team drama. I guess I definitely appreciate it more after, basically, most of the lackluster seasons of the HD Era.

This is actually soooooo true! I remember thinking it was a poor Season after the first watch, but remember going back to it a few years ago, and thoroughly enjoyed it.  The only thing that really bugs me is Nick & Star's dominance.  :groan:  And the first 3 boots were my 3 favourite teams.  :'(

Yeah TAR13 isn't that bad and just kind of suffers from Nick & Starr/Toni & Dallas boringly doing well and airing after TAR12

Yeah, I'm going to finish the season maybe today after stopping after Episode 5 and just starting Ep 6. But if I remember, it was only after the India Leg and the elimination of the Divorcees when Nick & Starr started taking over and I never was a fan of them.

Ken & Tina were total All-Star material too. Certainly better than a few TARUB teams and at least half of the TAR24 teams.

I loved Ken & Starr! TAR13 is definitely more forgettable than say TAR17, so Brooke & Claire's lack of return stings more, but it's sad anyway. :/

Ken & Tina, pardon my typo. :lol:

How can you forget the infamous Dandered  :funny:

Ken & Tina are a pair of funny a-bit-older team that we are lancing in recent seasons
I still remember Tina's quote during the Cambodia detouur 'we are going to the dentist, to a pick up some new teeth for me  :funny:

Honesty, I would love either them or Kelly & Christy to come back in a returnee season

I was really annoyed by Dandrew falling forward so much. I thought they were horrible. But watching them now, I think they're hilarious and fun to watch. I wouldn't want them to win, but them reaching the Final 3 is okay.

I've read rumours that Dandrew were approached for UB.
