GB wasn't talking about the subtitle.

I've never thought of this before, but it is a good point. ???

Nothing about TAR24 for me is good, not even the Europe half of the season. TAR19 is better than that season in my opinion

This. No TAR season so far was worst than TAR 24 a.k.a. "TSWSNBNR" (TAR SEASON WHO SHALL NOT BE NAMED AND REMEMBERED) . I'm still frustrated thinking this was a "All Stars" season. Other than Malaysia 2 and Sri Lanka 1 & 2 legs, everything else was a huge subpar of the "All Stars" level.


Sorry to offense any RFFer, but anyone who think other season is worst than TSWSNBNR seriously need to rewatch them multiple times.


Thank god TAR 25 & TAR 26 recovered from the TAR darkest age.

Worse season than 24?

TAR13? :escape

I still hate that finding random graffiti in random walls Roadblock *shiver*
And they waste the potential of Angkor Wat away.

TAR13 is indeed at the bottom area of my favorite TAR list

TAR13 wasn't that bad tbh. All the awful teams were booted early.

TAR13 had the Holi task, Kazakhstan, the best Moscow legs, Bolivia, Tonle Sap tasks, and a great final leg.

It also had Ken & Tina :c

TAR 13 is great, it's so underrated.  :'(

Although 13 is dominanted by Nick & Starr, but the cast is entertaining and the boot order is perfect. I like the entire F6. It also contained one of my favourite leg ever, Moscow II. And I think Bolivia , NZ , Cambodia , Both India and Portland are all pretty cool too.

One thing I would complain is lack of self-navigation. (I think the only self-driving was Auckland?) And it's only 11 legs. But I still prefer this >>>>> 14 , 15 , 16 anyday.

13 only have 1 leg self navigation in NZ legs if you don't count the driving to LAX from starting line.


Seriously all NZ legs so far always provide self navigation and navigation drama. (TAR 2 we have the Picton ferry drama and navigation drama, TAR 5 we have Colin & Christie and Linda & Karen navigation drama, TAR 13 we have flat tyres and navigation drama, TAR 22 we have Max & Katie navigation drama.)

I enjoy TAR13 more than any of the HD seasons. :hrt:

The ratings have nothing to do with whether a Season is good or not.  There are loads of amazing shows / films that don't get good ratings, or make a lot at the Box Office.  Just because it doesn't get the views doesn't mean it's not worth watching.

1. TAR 25 - good all around
2. TAR 18 - I rewatched a few episodes and dang that Margie & Luke vs. Flight Time & Big Easy race to the finish was more suspenseful than anything we've gotten in the last few seasons (mainly because of better editing) I usually never know where to put this season because it was so long ago and the style was just much different/more old-school.
3. TAR 22 - agreed with what allsta said - cast was great but it eventually got boring in the last 3 legs
4. TAR 20 - I have a soft spot for this season and I don't know why :lol: I just liked the drama between the teams which is so rare these days and something just felt so old-school about this season, maybe because it had 3 Fast Forwards :funny:
5. TAR 23 - this season was meh. Boring start (Chile), some boring teams (who thankfully got eliminated early), some boring legs (The F6 NEL/elimination legs), and the constant helping between Jason & Amy and Nicole & Travis was so frustrating!! It only had like 3 or 4 GOOD legs. Tim & Marie and the Afghanimals making it far helped.
6. TAR 21 - Good F6 but ugly route which resulted in pretty bad/uninteresting legs. It got really interesting when they reached Russia though.
7. TAR 19 - kind of a forgettable season but I remember this was a time when the show kept making so many changes and it was hard to adjust... but Bill & Cathi! :(
8. TAR 24 - idk the fact that Dave & Connor won is enough to explain why I don't like this season.

1. TAR18 (UB) - The best of the HD seasons hands down. This season was highly competitive, and showing some of the most memorable moments. It also features some terrific locations (Australia, Austria, Liechtenstein, Switzerland & Brazil) and the not so nice ones (China). Average winners, but the drama and suspense makes it the best
2. TAR22 - An easy choice, and a brilliantly crafted season. Heaps of fantastic locations including Bora Bora, New Zealand and all of Europe (excl Ireland). Some of the best racers ever and many memorable moments. Loved it, one of the best
3. TAR21 - People will probably hate and disagree but I loved Season 21 for it's second half mainly. I did not really care for it until they got to Turkey, then I became glued. Great racers, and a great final five alliance from Amsterdam onwards. Loved the European locations this season, and the suspense, but damn those twinnies
4. TAR25 - I used to love it and see why so many people do. But it does have a few flaws that cannot be avoided. I didn't like the UK visit, Morocco or the final leg & winners, but it did try its best and it was a huge improvement over it's predecessor
5. TAR19 - Underrated, and exciting. I despise the two Thai legs and the final episode, but overall it brings out the best in some of the teams and the other locations are fantastic. Its an amusing season for the most part, with several flaws
6. TAR26 - This would easily have been at the number one spot on my list, it had perfect locations (greater than any of thee), great task design and a fantastic luring factor. There was just one problem... The cast. Blind dating did not work for me at all, and there was not much competitiveness this season or any suspense. The boot order was predictable as well. A disappointment
7. TAR20 - A bitter disappointment. The locations were pretty lame, with the exception of Germany and Italy. I loved Booper & Mark but the rest of the cast as a whole are not so fun to watch. It was just a little lackluster in most areas.
8. TAR23 - Maybe I need to give this one another chance, but here we had two boring legs in Chile, a poor route overall once they hit Emirates, boring teams and a boring race.
9. TAR24 (AS) - Lame... Terrible casting, an especially terrible route, worst winners ever, bad challenges, boring, no suspense... Just awful mate
