LET ME BE THE FIRST LOL

So, I'm kind of disappointed that they did the starting line in Toronto because I was hoping they would continue their tradition of doing the SL in a new province/territory each time.

I understand and respect it from a producer point of view, but still sad lol

If Frankie and Amy were voted in, we would've had 5 FF teams.

Anyways, seems like a diverse cast. 1 team from SK.

I feel like casting changed a bit base on who was voted in, maybe they had an alpha male type of team if it was not Jet/Dave, to have a bit of balance, and would have eliminated one of the F/F if it was F/A

Same! And good thing they chose a less obvious starting line which is close to my office building. :funny: I was expecting the Nathan Philips Square.

From my post in another thread: Being in the starting line, no team stood out of being competitive or having big personalities aside from Jet and Dave so I'm not keeping my hopes up wrt entertainment.  I hope I'm wrong though.

Chances are it's just a transit. If they go anywhere in Asia when the first international comes up, they basically have to go through Vancouver. (A first for Jet & Dave, so they'd better not get somehow eliminated before then, lol)

We know only 7 teams. 3 teams were not seen in that leg - afroamerican FF, gay MM and Jet & Dave.

Or did I miss something?

That's West Edmonton, not Southgate.

Back to Edmonton, huh? Well, shouldn't be tough to top the first visit. IMO one of the worst legs TARCan ever did.

If they had to go to a mall, they totally should have gone to West Edmonton, one of the world's largest malls. They could have also had a task there on the indoor roller coaster.

Yeah I'm kind of confused as to why not go to WEM.... hum...
Also, I'm kind of meh at having TWO pairs of olympians.... I'm mean I sure both teams have very interesting stories but it doesn't seem very diverse

Post by: Maanca on April 29, 2019, 02:53:20 PM
They've been pushing back the first int'l.

Season 2 = 3rd leg
Season 3 = 2nd leg
Season 4 = 3rd leg
Season 5 and 6 = 4th leg

With next leg being the 5th, I'm pretty confident it will be, lol. It'd be one hell of a long flight from the territories, but that's nothing new for TARCan

What if they planned on flying out of Vancouver to Manila for a Leg or two but canceled the Legs last minute after the earthquakes last week?

I dunno. I'm just looking for excuses to explain no sign of international Legs yet, though it's not like I'm expecting any international Legs anyway. I like to keep my expectations low.  :lol:

It comes down to budget, I'd guess. They can't afford to take as many teams overseas, so they push it back until more are eliminated. I'm sure there will be at least one. Like, leg 5 or 6.

We've had a feeling original TAR has avoided Canada in a while due to proximity. But wonder if TARCAN might end up doing a international leg in the US or Mexico, that would still be international leg, despite being geographically closer, than flying to Asia, Europe, Africa or Africa.

James/Anthony seem interesting. Looking forward to seeing them and I'll be rooting for them as well.

Jet/Dave were my last choice to get voted back into this season, so I would have said that I was hoping they'd finish 4th again (just because), or out before that. Wasn't expecting to them to go out in the first two legs though if that's indeed the case.

Seeing them transiting to Vancouver a day ago - okay, great. They're connecting out of the country.

Suddenly they're transiting through Vancouver again a day later - what the flying hell is happening? 3 BC Pit Stops. Must have hit a budget limit with the int'l or something and had to substitute.

Just cancel this season please. Glad Jet and Dave went out early and Frankie and Amy didn't get on. They deserved better.

I don't obsess over the international legs and don't automatically assume that they'll all be better than the Canadian legs because this show has had pretty bad international legs (Hong Kong, Chile, Thailand). At the same time, I'm annoyed that barring an international visit next leg we might just get 1 international leg likely in the Americas. I like that the show is visiting NWT and Edmonton, but if they keep visiting BC then the legs will start to blend together.

At least there would have two international legs in the middle of the leg before heading back home to Canada for the remainder of the legs. It could be a late start for an international leg.

I'm dissapointed about already 3 BC episodes in the first 5 episodes and doubt if there will be 2 international legs in the second half of this season. Maybe like season 3, it can still have two consecutive international legs in southern america. I wonder if traveling cost in south america can be lower than in asian countries like Japan and South Korea. Also, TARC loses the asian traveling sponsor. I hope the tasks and racer personalities can make up the route design this season. I miss some villains in previous seasons before season 5.

This is what happens with Canadian TV. CTV is such a broke company financially in recent years, and when they get millions of viewers and awards for terrible seasons like TARC 5 and TARC 6, nobody is holding them accountable to provide an average or slightly above average product.

If they still get millions of viewers for TARC 7, the budget will just be trimmed even more as there will be no incentive to pump more money into TARC than they have to.

I can't even imagine what it would've been like if Reality Clash/Showdown had only aired during its original late May premiere date: Jet/Dave never getting to race abroad, the fate of the season resting in the hands of three all-female teams, etc before getting the satisfaction of Art/JJ booted first.

As of the halfway point, the route's a near redux of the one raced by Jet/Dave: the only difference besides the absence of Yukon is a third BC leg between NWT and SK.

The fate of the season resting in the hands of three all-female teams.

The race hasn't traveled to Europe since season 2 and tha could have two international legs for this season on a late start. It would be to take a break from Latin American and Asian legs. A far flung place like Dubai, United Arab Emirates as would be likely the first international destination and Istanbul, Turkey (European side) for the second and last international leg before heading back to Canada in the East Coast (The Atlantic).

A first Middle East leg in the Canadian race would be thrilled for Canadians everywhere.

I've seen the Facebook Page comments . . . I fear you have a much more optimistic view of the typical TARC viewer. I have actually had to completely remove that page from my likes and my feed because of that.

Honestly, at this point, looking at the route, I will treat this season like last season: watch only the international episodes (because I still think they do a bang up job on those ones). I have to echo the vast majority that have already replied. Uninspired route, boring (this coming from someone FROM Saskatoon - my reaction to them being two blocks from where I was having a meeting was a resounding "meh"), and just . . . overdone.

And I hate saying this, because I love this show. The American and Australian ones I watch religiously. I travel a lot and will seek out locations used in the show (the recent TAR episode in Laos had me pausing multiple times, matching my photos with their locations).

Fool me once, TARC, with Season 2 - "Maybe they're just easing into it"
Fool me for the next 5 seasons . . . .

I'm no longer going to naively believe that "Next season they'll go international more! They surely have exhausted Canada by now".

I'm not upset TARC . . . . I'm just very very very disappointed.

Valid points and yes, many are disappointed in how TARC has turned out. But it's to be expected because this is Canadian TV, budget from CTV/Bell Media is very, very limited and a large chunk comes from government grants. And since TARC gets a good part of its production budget from government grants, they will not do anymore international legs than they've done because many TV production grants stipulate a certain amount of shooting has to take place in Canada. This budgeting also limits where these international legs are, how long they stay and how many teams they bring. This will not change because the ratings are still there and that's good enough for CTV/Bell Media.

So in the end, TARC will always be a low rent cousin to the US version, even the Australian version.

The main thing is, they can go all over Canada as much as they want. But it's not fun if they keep recycling the same tasks over and over. (Not to mention having a task ABOUT recycling.) Or have uncreative and boring tasks that don't even have anything to do with the otherwise quaint, nice local town they're Racing through.

Season 1 wasn't bad by any means, the Regina and Iqaluit legs are classic for how physically brutal they were (little Vanessa Morgan pulling that sled across the tundra).

The casts and tasks make a huge difference, but the latter is where the last couple seasons lacked. And with the shoestring budget it's looking like this one may have, I don't know.

Exactly, the Race hasn't even finished yet, also IF it is then this is the reason why TAR Canada isn't good. It doesn't do anything innovative and reuses so many locations, tasks, etc.

Although the US has had many casting twists in the past few seasons, at least some can pay off (Strangers season).

For the most part in Nat & Meg's interviews, they just repeated the description of each tasks. They were okay to watch but the show really didn't show off their personalities. My kid and I skated with them at an event a year after their season and they were very funny, smart and sweet, but the editing focused more on their competitive nature. Same with Steph and Kristen (and I would add Gino and Jesse; they are also hilarious, smart but again the editing only showed one side of them.

And on Victoria Day Weekend, it's just Toronto transplanted.

Iím pretty sure by having an all domestic route they saved a lot more money and hopefully thy can venture out with some more international destinations next season, but itís TARC so highly unlikely lol

Unless another major sponsor, that would like to promote overseas travel for Canada gets involved, it does seem to make International legs even more unlikely.

FF team in Final 3!

Another interracial team makes the finale again!
I've been looking all around for that confirmation.  Who are the F3?  You've got Sam & Sarah, either Lauren & Joanne or Marsha & Kali, and who else?

There is no Marsha and Kali! It was a mistake. Team 3 is Lauren and Joanne and they are in final 3 with James and Anthony and Sam/Sarah

TAR Canada as a whole is irritating.  :funny: :groan:

 B:)

Pardon?

Half the TARCAN seasons to date are quality (1/2/4), so the franchise as a whole can't by definition irritate.

It would be so cool if they added Canadaís Choice in other seasons like let us pick a destinations in the season and if they make an all star season let us pick some teams

I saw one under Sarah & Sam's post already. Voting Jet & Dave in added one, since Frankie & Amy are from BC and Brent & Sean are from Nova Scotia.

I say the twins also have a second chance type cause one of them did break their neck and for the grandfather I feel like he has a second chance kind of a life, getting out there at 65, fresh start

This observation was just from their initial descriptions from CTV. When you see the various interviews their back stories come out. ie: the twins mother passed when they were 14 years old, Gilles took over a lot of the parenting responsibilities when his daughter had Sean at a young age.

I feel like we need to bring this post back up!

I really like this season so far!!!  :conf: :conf:

Teams: 9.5/10

The teams are really really good this year. Great diverse cast from all over Canada (We are just missing a teams from Northern Canada and it would have been a homerun).

Teams I love: Aarthy & Thinesh / Anthony & James / Jet & Dave/ Lauren & Joanne
Teams I like:Meghan & Marie / Trish & Amy/ Nicki & Aisha / Gilles & Sean
Teams that are bit bland: Sarah & Sam (but it might change base on the preview)
Teams I love to hate: Dave & Irina

I have to say thank god for a team like Dave/Irina. As much as I don't like them, they are the much needed villains we needed. And I think people will be satisfied at the end of this.

Tasks 8.5/10

The tasks this year are pretty good also so far. I love the self driving aspect, which cost two teams the race already.
Lots of sport/outdoor related task so far, and only 1 dance task lol

Location: 6.5/10

Meh, Canada only is a bit disappointing. BUT.... the locations so far have been great
My only problem with the overall route is the 3 BC legs, and 3 ON legs, I feel like they could have balanced it a bit more.
Hope they add international legs back if we get more seasons. Like even just a quick leg in Windsor/Detroit could work.

Twist:

I love the One-Way twist, and it played out perfectly in it's first try. I feel that later in the race, when teams know a bit more about each other's weakness, it will work ever better. Hope if there is another one, it will not be a blind one-way.

Idea of twist: In the description of next week's episode, they mention a diamond roadblock. I think they meant a diamond related task roadblock. But it gave me an idea for a twist. Imagine if the winner of a leg wins a diamond roadblock, which would give the teams a chance to switch teammate for a roadblock, only once in the race. So ex: In season 2, episode 5 in the Yukon, had Cormac/Nicole won the diamond roadblock, Cormac could have replace his mother while she was struggling with the gun task. It's not as powerful as an express pass, but it could help a team who is stuck because they didn't pick the right person to do a task. (Maybe it could be given for the winners of leg 2, rather than give them a third express pass like this season).

4 episodes into this Season 7, I have to admit - this season, the cast, the tasks, it has not been as terrible as I expected when we tracked its filming. The route is domestic, sure, but they seem to have stepped it up from Seasons 5 and 6. I'm surprised.

Bungee jumping off a bridge and a cave descent, even that third BC leg next week doesn't look that bad in the preview.

Awesome Final 3 this year! The two strongest teams, with a combined 7/10 1st places, go out before the finale, and all they really had to do was move the Face Off out of the Final 4 leg. I never liked it there.

Pros and cons. It has no international this season, there's a couple of legs which strongly feel like they were the substitutes.

But the task and cast are actually an improvement on 5 and 6. (oh the cast, especially a certain villainous team like Canada's never seen before and pretty much defined this season. The casuals hated them)

6 was really the season of "we're running out of ideas" tasks, even the int'l ones lacked. So I agree, I had extremely low expectations when it filmed. But there's been surprises.

Omg I agree soo much with this ranking! I think 1-2-4  are very good, 7-6 are good, 5 is meh and 3 is ...

People are bashing 6, but the casting was actually really good. Some tasks were meh but the leg's destination was mostly great (except Squamish and Stratford).

My only complain about the editing this season was that the winners were pretty obvious...
S/S had a bland edit and the sisters were more goofballs then real contenders.

Pretty much my order except with 6 & 7 switched. 6 had a better route, and 7 had a better cast.

My only complain about the editing this season was that the winners were pretty obvious...
S/S had a bland edit and the sisters were more goofballs then real contenders.

I thought that Sarah & Sam had more of an overly inspirational edit than Anthony & James especially with the word of the day. Anthony & James would start legs talking about representation but the rest of the leg would just be them as a couple.
