From the first episode of the first season of The Amazing Race, there has been no bigger fan than yours truly. And even the worst episode of Race is better than most TV.
Having said that... Please: NO MORE FAMILY EDITIONS!
From the baffling dislike some of the families have for each other, to the claustrophobic nature of the race itself -- we finally just left the U.S. and now we're back???? -- this has been a bit of a bummer.
Oh, well, after all these seasons of escalating quality, they were due one... what should we call it? "Rebuilding year?" "Course correction?" "Lapse?"
Anyhoo, I can't wait for the race to be amazing again.
