I was sure on this anniversary year we'd be getting Europe.

Either UK...well, commonwealth. That's the biggest Canadian connection of all.
Or the Netherlands, who Canada liberated 100 years ago this month, looks like they probably referenced that in Ottawa due to a sighting of Jon in the tulip gardens near the tribute statue.

LOL this season's going to suck. Unless the cast carries it.

I'm not feeling the cast tbh. I trust casting did their best to give us the best 10 teams they could find (or not). We'll see.

1,2 and 4 were some of the best casts in the history of the show.

Well, it's hard to judge a cast based on amateur photos. But I have my own preconceived notions of what to expect, yeah.

I.e. #1 looks like they'll be Gino & Jesse 2.0 (cringe). A few of them really look like re-skins of past teams.

I always think that what we see based on spoilers is like looking thru a photographic album, with maybe a bad home silent movie or two thrown in.

But until we really see them in action: speaking, interacting with each other, working (or not) with the other teams, talking to the host...it is almost impossible to get a true sense of what they will be like on the show.

SO let's plan to be surprised in a good way!!

Yeah agreed (but definitely leaning more on 4>2>1). I think the only one that intrigues me is... Team 7, Team 8, and Team 10?

This season gives me a TARCAN3 vibe already. And at least THAT season had 4 International legs.

Not feeling this route.

A record number of reused cities, and for a season supposed to celebrate Canada (more than it already did), they covered less of it than ever, no north or maritimes at all. Only a couple domestic legs really appealed to me

Fort McMurray, there was a sighting of a helicoptet landing, which I bet means one of the route markers was flying them over to see the extent of the wildfire damage.

Western Newfoundland, because I've wanted them to get to Labrador, the fjord-laced landscape of Gros Morne is close enough. Plus, vikings are always cool.

Possibly Saskatchewan...IF they went where I suspect they went when they vanished in the south country.

.

Decent tasks and good cast can help a season, and we'll know better after the mid-June bio releases, but on the outside they look like another S3-style (their blandest) cast. And got a feeling this year production will have them regurgitating their patriotism on camera throughout the race.

If the show stopped winning those CSA's, maybe that would make Brunton/Lysakowski/Bickerton sit back and finally say, "We're losing them, we need to shake it up. Maybe it's time to try the world thing more".

Hopefully the cast is good to save it, the route is really odd. If they really wanted to celebrate Canada's 150 years, they should have visited areas that have roots, histories, iconic areas that helped shaped Canada and overseas countries that have a strong relationship and deep history with Canada.

AMEN. Locations are a HUGE part of all our TAR's.

AMEN

I like to think of it like this:
A season needs the basics of locations.
Tasks can potentially make up for bad locations/uninteresting locations.
If tasks and locations don't do the job, the cast has to make up for that or the show goes flat.

Cast - 50% Tasks 30% Location 20%

Hope its not a season 3 repeat!

Canada always delivers with a good cast so I'm not worried about that, I have faith in this version's quality
The story so far:
In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move

The problem I think with 3's cast was they had too many alpha personalities, the kind of people who often don't make entertaining TV, they take everything seriously (TAR20's cast suffered from this problem, too).

It was probably the biggest budget season, too. Largest cast, and gave the best Pit Stop prizes.

It now makes sense, because production spent a lot for S.3, that factor most probably carried on with the succeeding seasons, now that TAR Canada has only 10 teams for S.4 & the upcoming S.5 plus the fact that Air Canada dropped out as sponsor. Production is recovering from S.3, looked at the prizes and wow! not only that you get to travel to a destination, you get free supply of gas for a year or two depending on the leg.

The other problem was the lack of diversity with the teams.
2 Brother Teams
2 Father-Daughter Teams
2 Co-worker Teams (Both FF too :funny:)
2 Dating Teams
The other 4 were Teammates, Exes, Married and Engaged. We had all the types of couples (exes, married, dating and engaged).

Too many MF teams too.

The 2 Co-Workers & F/F teams were also both Police Officers. We also had a lot of athletes in S.3, we had an MMA Fighter, Wrestlers, Hip-Hop Dancers, a former Pro Soccer Player, a former Pro Football Player.

Season 3 would be far better if both two F/F teams weren't booted quite soon, we would see many drama in Face-Off tasks and W-turn boards

I really don't think the boot order played a giant factor, the route was REALLY bad too. Maybe the worst Canada legs out of the four.

I still remember how cringey and hilarious it was that Edmonton kept promoting their penultimate leg as (a showcase of our rich culture) and the leg ended up just being teams going to a garbage dump, a gas station, and a bar :lol:

^ I remember these last few legs of Season 3 where I found the Canadian self promo was really annoying when the leg design and task was really bland itself and can be done anywhere, and then it got hype on the show like it's the best thing to happen on the world, or showcase on the Canadian rich culture, etc.

Cast gives me a basic vibe now. (Better than Season 3 which was bland)

Cast Impressions:

Love Karen and Bert
Andrea and Ebonie  :bunny
Korey and Ivana  :keeta:
Sam and Paul  :spy:
Aaron and Deb - not the most watchable, they make me cringe :funny:
Kenneth and Ryan  :juggle
Courtney/Megan - lack personality
