'The Amazing Race: Unfinished Business' Season 18, Episode 6 Recap

['The Amazing Race: Unfinished Business' - 'I Feel Like a Monkey in a Circus Parade (Kolkata, India)'] Perhaps Ron and Christina felt comfortable in China, but no team ever feels familiar with the hustle and bustle of Kolkata, India. The entire city is always a sensory overload, as well as a population overload, when the teams from 'The Amazing Race' run through it. The chaos of traffic and...

'The Amazing Race: Unfinished Business' Season 18, Episode 5 Recap

['The Amazing Race: Unfinished Business' - 'Don't Ruin the Basketball Game (Kunming, China)'] "Wait ... what do dinosaurs have to do with ruining basketball games?" you ask. Well, if you were running 'The Amazing Race' with a couple of Harlem Globetrotters, it might be to your advantage to have a dinosaur take your place in a quick pick-up game. Right? That's what it was all about tonight --...

'The Amazing Race: Unfinished Business' Season 18, Episode 4 Recap

['The Amazing Race: Unfinished Business' - 'This is the Most Stupid Day Ever (Lijiang, China)'] This is shaping up to be a rather odd season of 'The Amazing Race.' Mind you, not quite as odd as that ill-fated (and I hope they never entertain the notion again) "family edition" some years back. That was annoying odd. This season is just plain unusual odd. It's not just that all the teams are...

'The Amazing Race: Unfinished Business' Season 18, Episode 3 Recap

['The Amazing Race: Unfinished Business' - 'We Had a Lot of Evil Spirits Apparently (Japan)'] What's the absolute best thing about 'The Amazing Race'? Sure, there's the adrenalin rush as the teams race around the world. Yes, there's Phil's infamous eyebrow raise. You can cheer on your favorite teams and jeer at the ones who irk you. But the best thing about the race is learning odd trivia...

'The Amazing Race: Unfinished Business' Season 18, Episode 2 Recap

['The Amazing Race: Unfinished Business' - 'I've Never Looked So Foolish in My Whole Entire Life (Outback)'] Instead of such a lengthy episode title, perhaps Zev's quote, "Ow! My tail!" would have been more fitting for last night's episode of 'The Amazing Race.' We last left our teams with Jet and Cord caught in a cliffhanger. As Phil didn't specify that all of the teams would continue...

'The Amazing Race: Unfinished Business' Season Premiere Recap

['The Amazing Race: Unfinished Business' - 'Head Down and Hold On (Australia)'] Going into an "all stars" season of any reality competition show, we expect some familiarity with the contestants. So, we can hope some have matured (Luke) or others don't make really foolish mistakes again (bathroom break, Jen?). What we don't expect are teams who have previously run 'The Amazing Race' to...

'The Amazing Race' Season 17, Episode 12 (Season Finale) Recap

['The Amazing Race' - 'Hi. I'm Sorry. I'm in a Race.'] Usually the season finale of 'The Amazing Race' isn't such a nail-biter. In previous seasons, there's always been one team in the finale that makes you scratch your head and wonder how they made it that far, and another team that could've been named the winner a handful of episodes back. That wasn't the case this season. The three...

'The Amazing Race' Season 17, Episode 11 Recap

['The Amazing Race' - 'I'm Surrounded by Ninjas!'] If the moon is truly in the seventh house and Jupiter is definitely aligned with Mars, if all that is good is right with the world ... then we all know that it's time for Nick and Vicki to leave 'The Amazing Race.' If Vicki could switch out partners at this late date, that would be fine, but Nick must go. But, this show isn't always that...

'The Amazing Race' Season 17, Episode 10 Recap

['The Amazing Race' - 'I Hate Chinese Food'] It's hard to believe that we're down to the final four on 'The Amazing Race.' While it seems like just a few weeks have gone by, already the teams ousted early are fading in my mind. Two all-female teams are still in contention for the big win and both of them are pretty dang tough, wouldn't you say? Then there's Nick and Vicki. Despite tough...

'The Amazing Race' Season 17, Episode 9 Recap

['The Amazing Race' - 'There's a Lot of Nuts and Bullets'] Every few seasons, 'The Amazing Race' tosses something new into the mix to challenge the teams. Initially, the main obstacles were Detours and Roadblocks. Since then we've had Yields, U-Turns and Speed Bumps, all of which have the sole aim of impeding team progress. Tonight's introduction of the Double U-Turn, while not entirely a...
