Half the length of a regular TAR, yes.

I do think though that the first half was way superior to the second half.

True, episodes 4-6 were essentially rehashes of China Rush, the Vietnamese edition, and TARA, whereas the earlier ones showed off never-visited delights like Thessaloniki, Ankara, and all of Uzbekistan.

Just started watching the show and it's fun so far. It's definitely more Pekin Express than TAR, but with even less of a focus on competition. If anything, it feels more like NBC's Lost, yes?
