Hi incoming TAR audience!


In exactly a couple hours from now, the world premiere of TAR34 will be airing and I am ecstatic to update all of you on what is going on, so kick back, wash some laundry, or occupy yourself with the Survivor premiere in the meantime. Set a countdown for 2 hours (see gif below for what to do :lol: ). Can't wait to watch the extravaganza in Germany with all of you!

Beware that the episode already aired in certain timezones of Canada. So don't spoil it for us following the CBS ET airing.
Links for the ET airing will be up on the Live Stream thread for those who need it ~9h40.

And WE ARE ON THE AIR! :cheer:

We begin with establishing shots around Munich! Philster says 12 new teams are headed to the Starting Line Bavarian-style. Luis begins dancing and are introduced first. Luis & Michelle are raised on croquetas, Michelle is a dancer for Pitbull and Luis is a firefighter.

Derek & Claire met on BB and began dating for the past 8 months. Claire is a tech worker and Derek is the muscles behind the team.

Teams are headed down a luge!

Now this is an entrance! :clap2: They arrive at Nymphenburg Palace! All teams are excited. Phil announces they are about to make history on this race. They point to Tim & Rex first and Rex introduces himself as the former NY Jets and Buffalo Bills coach. They met as golf buddies.

Abby & Will cannot contain themselves and are high school sweethearts. It is a dream of theirs!

Not aware of how Derek and Claire were on BB, they do sound different from most previous teams who also originated from BB. At least from this short intro, I can say I probably like them more than most of them. Probably comparable to Nicole & Victor. Maybe? Just some random thoughts...

Quinton & Mattie say they are both Rams cheerleaders. Emily & Molly shock the racers with them meeting for the first time a year ago after an ancestry service brought them together. Linton & Sharik show love for Jamaica!

Phil would love to meet everyone, but gets started introducing twists. First time starting outside the race, and... teams are allowed to complete tasks in any sequence. AND NON-ELIMINATIONS ARE BEGONE! Audrey & David say this is a do or die situation.

Teams will get their clues at the top of their bags and must make their way around Munich by self-driving and pick up 3 puzzle pieces around to find their Pit Stop.

AND THEY ARE OFF!!!

ROUTE INFO: Get ready to scramble!
 Luitpold Park - roll beer kegs
 Augustiner-Keller Beer Garden - saw a log in half
 Seehaus Beer Garten - break a block of ice

Everyone is shocked and Abby says this throws a wrench in their plans. Marcus & Michael intelligently get a map out while Aashtha & Nina ask locals.

Aastha & Nina are extra credit kids and love to try harder to find out all the answers. Derek & Claire want to figure out the directions first and drive off while Aastha & Nina interact with locals.

Emily & Molly go to the ice blocks first and pass by Aastha & Nina.

 Luis & Michelle pick the beer keg because it was the first they found.

 Dom's hair is complimented! :2hearts:

Both teams pass the couple.

We return to the craziness of the beginning as Luis & Michelle reiterate the new rules. Aashta & Nina met on a dating app and been together for 4 years before getting engaged. Aashta meditates 2 hours a day.

Marcus & Michael go to the beer kegs. They are active duty military and want to reconnect with each other, having fun.

Military guys arrive first! They must roll a beer keg during a relay in a predetermined amount of time to receive one piece of their puzzle.

Marcus & Michael get started with a sloppy first attempt! They lost by just an inch. Oof.

Meanwhile, Rich & Dom are motivate-speaking themselves. They help students out to spread inspiration and life. They arrive at Seehaus Beer Garten for the log sawing task. Dom is tongue-tied! :funny:

Teams must saw a piece of log and trade it for their puzzle piece.

Rich strategizes their rocking motion. Dom loves a good workout!

So teams are racing aware that there are no Non-Elim. Wonder if the pit-stop clue will always be phrased with will be eliminated, now.

Meanwhile, Aastha & Nina finally get in their cars to drive off!

INTRO!!!

Having just watched the TAR Can finale last night, I really miss the old style credits, with teams in activities outside, instead of in front on green screen.

Marc & Michael get started on their 2nd attempt with a better run. THEY GET THEIR FIRST PUZZLE PIECE! They hadn't worked in two months because Marcus was

Aastha & Nina and Tim & Rex are still driving their own ways. Luis & Michelle are hoping Roll is a dance challenge. They're in for a rude awakening. :funny: "iAndale!"

Abby & Will catch up as well as Derek & Claire! It's a footrace!

Marcus & Michael proceed to the Augustiner beer garden.

Derek & Claire, Audrey & David, and Abby & Will go at their first attempt and the former is the only team to pass this. Others must restart.

Emily & Molly and Luis & Michelle arrive at the outdoor beer garden where they begin smashing ice to get the first piece of their angel. Luis absolutely destroys the block while Emily chose the wrong side to chisel. :funny:

Luis leaves first while Quinton & Mattie take part in the ice bonanza. Emily & Molly finally get their first piece.

Aastha & Nina are lost after asking so many directions in the beginning. :groan:

Tim & Rex joke how driving with his wife that she would kick his youknowwhat.

Rich & Dom are absolutely exhausted while Linton & Sharik arrive. Sharik noticed Rich & Dom are doing a full-body P90X, Beachbody routine and eventually slice pass them at a point where Rich says this was harder than he expected.

COMMERCIALS.

We come back to Rich & Dom sawing with all their might. We cut to Abby & Will and Audrey & David neck and neck at their 2nd attempt at the roll. Abby & Will talk about how competitive they are. Both teams pass and get their 1st piece of the clue. They both head to saw separately.

Meanwhile, Quinton & Mattie get the piece from the ice. Aastha & Nina and T-Rex arrive at the ice block Roadblock. Glenda & Lumumba get their piece. They finally get their intro. :luvya:

They met at church and saw right over their heads. They can go low and high at the same time. :funny:

Tim & Rex are off with their angel piece while Aastha & Nina follow right behind.

Linton & Sharik get their piece from the lumberjack while Rich & Dom "danke" him for the next piece.

Derek & Claire arrive at the logs. Marcus & Michael get their 2nd piece at the ice Roadblock.

Derek & Claire don't see anyone and are worried about their placement. Meanwhile, Glenda & Lumumba pass on their first try at the keg roll! Derek & Claire missed one tiny piece and trim it to get their angel piece.

Quinton & Mattie work until they hit the... ground. And a Hail Mary roll saved them at the end. :funny: They get their second angel piece.

Emily & Molly are lost and say their twin telepathy is not working.

Mattie realizes this wasn't a leaderboard issue, it was a racing in the dark situation. Emily & Molly finish the keg roll and are proceeding to saw. Marcus & Michael have a minor communication breakdown with navigation.

Audrey & David know there are 3 teams finishing the previous task in front of him and are worried heading to the next location.

Luis & Michelle and Aastha & Nina do the log slices. Abby & Will come in from behind.

This format do make it a bit harder to figure out placements.
Only gives you a general idea, who completed which and how many challenges, and that's the hindsight we get as viewers, racers are blind to that, only aware of who they saw in each challenge.

Michelle's witch hat falls off while Will compliments Abby's muscles. Marcus & Michael don't know much about Munich even after periodically living in the area for a while. They remind themselves there are no room for errors especially with no non-elimination safety nets.

We return to Linton & Sharik at the keg roll, just scraping by. We get a midleg announcement by Phil on everyone's current completions with animated team actions. Cool!

Abby & Will finish the sawing first while Audrey & David arrive at the task. They wish each other luck happily.

Luis & Michelle switch sides after tiffing for a little bit. Quinton & Mattie get started on their last task before the Pit Stop.

Audrey has never sawed before and spend time laughing about it.

Derek & Claire arrive at the ice block Roadblock where Derek pretends he's Godzilla for a while. He makes quick progress and gets their last piece.

They arrange them into a riddle to meet Phil at the Pit Stop at Friedensengel! ROUTE INFO: Last team to check in WILL be eliminated.

Claire says this was the most nervous they've been.

Glenda & Lumumba get their last piece and are headed to the Pit Stop with Derek & Claire. Luis & Michelle are frustrated.

Rich & Dom and Tim & Rex compete at the keg roll. Rex lost 50 lbs for this race. He finishes before Rich who sloppily had his keg roll out of the course. The golf buddies go to the beerhaus.

Marcus & Michael hope they are still in tight grouping while all the log cutters are finished. Dom makes sure they don't finish last.

We come back to the motivational speakers needing some motivation of their own to regain the confidence to get a keg around an obstacle course. They channel their inner lion and need to support each other no matter what. They finish the task and Dom gives the ref a hug. They are giving emphasized proudness. :funny:

Marcus & Michael are in trouble and are arguing at the log cutting. Linton & Sharik are at the Roadblock with Linton chunking the ice down.

Derek & Claire vs. Glenda & Lumumba to the Pit Stop!

And Derek & Claire arrive at the Pit Stop in 1st! "Thank you, I like your beard." - Derek

They win $2,500 each for after the race! Claire was surprised they were 1st and were striving for "not last".

Glenda & Lumumba arrive 2nd. No Pit Stop announcement. :(

Marcus & Michael argue even more while Tim & Rex laugh at them. They are bending their saw when they cut. :groan:

Linton & Sharik head off to the Pit Stop after getting their last angel piece. Aastha & Nina are at the kegs and are too slow. Linton & Sharik say everyone is hyper-competitive this time.

Marcus & Michael leave in 5th with a downcast look while Tim & Rex leave in 6th. Emily & Molly just arrive at the logs while Luis & Michelle get to the kegs battling Aastha & Nina.

Luis & Michelle pass their keg roll and leave in 7th. Aastha & Nina are panicking.

Quinton & Mattie check in in 3RD PLACE!

Aastha & Nina and a commotion of Abby & Will, Rich & Dom, and Emily & Molly getting their last pieces. All pass except for the engaged couple. "I got the technique, I got the physics, let me do it this time."

They finally get it after a third attempt.

Audrey & David vs. Aastha & Nina to the Pit Stop AND.... Audrey & David are sad that they were going to be eliminated; however, they are TEAM NUMBER 11... haven't heard that in a while... and are still in the race.

Aastha & Nina are last to arrive and have been eliminated from the race. Nina says Aastha is the light of her life and will laugh about the race experience for the rest of their lives.

Loved the leg as well. Chaos unpredictable high paced leg. Hoping to see more of this format more. My only concern is that there would have needed some variation, like high paced mental task because mosts if not all the tasks here require physical strength and stuff

The scramble twist made the episode itself very chatoic in terms of editing  :groan:
I cannot track teams’ progress in the mid-way until Phil’s recap at the middle
Perhaps if they want to do the twist again, they should do it during the leg with fewer teams around

So sad to see the lesbian out in first  :'( they seem to be a fun and dramatic team
Meanwhile, some teams are completely invisible (e.g Quinton & Mattie, Glenda & Lumumba, despite the fact that they are in top ranking)

Rich & Dom is like a complete 2.0 of Abbar & Sheri last season  :groan:
Hopefully more crying from Dom is not gonna be annoying like Abbar’s nagging  :groan:

Enjoyed the chaos, and the fact that they still managed to make one of the challenges a RB.
A bit harder to follow, as this was the premiere and still getting to know the teams. Intrigued for a repeat of the scramble, but rather than jumpstarting the season, would love to see it used midway, when there are like 8 or 7 teams left.
Surprised by how much I enejoyed Derek & Claire. Marcus & Michael look like the alpha MM team of the season, provided they don't get frazzled by the challenges. Expected to see more of Abby & Will, but they were mostly invisible for most of the episode.

After seven years, we finally have two seasons in the same year.

I thought that the Scramble was the best twist in recent history. I liked that it combined self-navigation along with speculation on the location of the Pit Stop. Chaotic, yes, but I like some chaos. Of the three task, the ice was the easiest (apparently production removed a mallet after testing this task), but knowing that meant that you knew that teams who did it last would have an advantage. The beer keg roll led to fun moments like Quinton's dive. Those saws always lead to difficulties, but it was a case of technique over strength. Strong first episode, though I do wish though that they would stop jumping to Oktoberfest whenever they are in Bavaria.

I have to say that after cooling off from the premiere jitters, I'm kind of disappointed they didn't show Glenda & Lumumba interacting very often. I was looking forward to them the most just because of how positive and humorous they are in almost every scene of them I've seen so far. They were heavily under-edited this premiere. Hopefully, we can see more of them next leg.

And again, I am happy with the soundtrack selections. I always wanted a return to the adrenaline rush in that Switzerland leg last season and it popped this leg between all the angel piece retrieval combos, drama between Marcus & Michael and the saw task, and the starting line navigation strategies between multiple teams with the bonus of Aastha & Nina withering their lead at each passing team.

For the international starting line, this is one of those times where I'm glad they didn't do a mode of transport beforehand. It reinforced the twist's structural integrity and made it a one-off unique celebration. However, I was not feeling the setup of these individual tasks. I feel like Oktoberfest was too obvious of a concept, but nothing in this leg screamed " :jam:OKTOBERFEST :jam:" if you know what I mean. I do love the twist and would love to see it re-done with fewer teams though (and no alliancing!).

Note: I had two Schwarzbiers beforehand to celebrate the German leg so my typing and drinking may not be comprehensible during this fine hour. :funny:

Pretty underwhelming cast IMO, which is a shame because there's 12 teams this time around. I haven't felt this indifferent about the teams since maybe TAR 30. There's no big personality standouts besides Derek & Claire (and I wouldn't even say they're my favorite team) - and when they're also evidently one of the stronger teams (just based on this first episode alone), it could make for a boring watch.

The Scramble was fun once, but hopefully this is the only time they do it. It was just a weird, unstructured hour of pretty lame tasks imo.

Often times, first episodes aren't a good gauge of teams' personalities. They're still too relaxed and part of the airtime is eaten up by their introductions. We should start seeing what they're really made of in the next episode or two.

Caught the episode this morning and thought it was pretty good! The starting line being in Munich worked out okay - Phil explaining the twist at the Palace was better than doing so stateside and letting teams think it over while on a plane, or doing a starting line and flying in from the US just to bunch teams once in Munich. I think the Scramble was okay. It could allow production to design more legs around one central theme (here, Oktoberfest). I also liked how one of the tasks was still a Roadblock.

None of the teams jumped out at me this episode, so it'll take a few more episodes to establish rooting favorites.

Wow. I really like some of the teams and am very eager to see them in action. Bit much on dancers though. :funny: And y'all know I am not much (hate??) the use of other CBS casts although I understand it MIGHT bring in more viewers. I want ordinary people doing extraordinary things please.

Can't think of the last time I was more unenthused about the rest of the season after the first episode. Aside from a few teams, the cast is not very memorable and, while they mostly seem very nice, pretty boring. I do like that they finally have an older team (TRex).

I think the scramble in theory sounds like a good idea but it was just very hard to follow and very messy. Kind of like when we do TAR Design Challenge, there are ideas that work great as an RFF game but are impractical for the TV and I think this is the perfect example. Constantly trying to follow who was where and what just became a headache and with my very ADHD brain caused me to tune out a lot. In all honesty, I think I would've been happier with a city sprint.

The tasks were even worse. I felt they could be done anywhere. Also, can TAR think of something to do in Munich besides Oktoberfest for once??  :lol: :lol:

It's unfortunate but the truth is I think COVID really made TAR harder to be successful as an entertaining show and you can tell how much it is suffering as a result. At least we're getting two seasons in one year for the first time in years tho so I can't be too mad. Hopefully in a couple years when the world has finally adjusted to COVID it'll be better but we'll see. Here's hoping the rest of the season is more entertaining.

I'm not the biggest fan of twists and new stuff, but I loved this first episode and all the new things about it.

Had fun watching it! Something that had last happened a very long time ago.

Agree that the tests were not very challenging, but the teams give me the good old cast vibes. They seem to be regular people instead of semi famous people?

The eliminated team was the one I least vibed with. I had a feeling they would be last.
