Also, I hate how they do not givd accurate placings. And I don't get the idea behind it. I understand that nothing interesting was happening with Troy & Chele, but they could've just been given a UTR edit until they were eliminated in an episode that tuly showcased their placement.
God, production needs to be more critical of the elisodes and the season as a whole when editing next time.
To be fair, with the placements, that's how the editing works in the UK version and it is executed flawlessly, as each episode only focuses on 2 teams or 3 at the most, with the third being usually UTR, it allows for truly rich and organic RTV storytelling - you will never finish a season without the sense that each fugitive has a certain story arc that was complete, in only SIX episodes. It's not with the number of episodes, but how it is presented.
Unfortunately, this episode of the US version was rushed simply because they focused too on too many teams to carry it and we fail to get the exposition on how many days a team actually lasted, unlike the UK.
It should improve beginning next week, as we will have finally met the entire cast. Hoping for the best because it already looks like this was renewed for a Season 2 as the Twitter of the show posted they were looking for fugitives
Do you think because the wanted poster worked on the boys, they decided to do it on Troy & Chele?
I think the boy did pretty good but they have no plan B. They should have someone to call on, backing up than depending completely on strangers.
Posters are always used if I'm not mistaken, they were only shown being used against the boys and Troy & Chele because in that case, they worked. I wouldn't see how Command Center wouldn't utilize posters against everyone considering a flier takes 30 minutes tops to create in MS Word.
