It took several seasons (they are like up to 8 now?) but I finally checked out The Amazing Race. My mom was the first one to tell me how much she liked the show, but I resisted. After hearing Aaron and Jenny going on about the show on their podcast The Big Show, I decided it was time to give it a go.
First, let me warn you that I am a sucker for reality shows – they are just so much more interesting than sitcoms – even the poorly executed ones. The Amazing Race however, is a cut above the rest. I have watched the first DVD of Season One containing three episodes and I am hooked.
There is only one group of contestants that I detest – Bill and Joe, AKA Team Guido. They are deceitful, dishonest, and downright losers. They are still in the competition and doing very well despite their constant backstabbing… I hope they don’t make it to the end. I pretty much like all the rest of the teams.
(I have no clue as to who won the whole thing and for that reason will NOT be reading and comments posted on this entry just in case someone wants to spoil the surprise for me. I’ll read them all AFTER I finish the season.)
Ahhhhhh welcome to TV’s best show that no one watches. Glad to see you enjoyed the show and glad to see that our constant talk about the show didn’t make you run and hide. The show has actually been better through the years so I think once they release the other seasons on DVD, you’ll come to love it even more.
Thanks again Aaron – I can’t believe NetFlix doesn’t have any more seasons… I thought for sure that with the 8th installment running now, there would be three or four available. 🙁
