'The Amazing Race' Season 17, Episode 8 Recap

['The Amazing Race 17' - 'Ali Baba in a Suit'] Tonight we boldly went to where no reality show (or just a rare few) has gone before -- the Middle East. For some odd reason I just can't see 'The Real Housewives of New Jersey' filming there. Yet it was a perfect location for a leg of 'The Amazing Race.' Not only is the countryside simply amazing, but the teams were well-received by the locals....

'The Amazing Race' Season 17, Episode 7 Recap

['The Amazing Race' - 'I Want to Be in the Circus, That's Where I Belong'] No clowning around here, it's high time to change this show's Sunday night time-slot to another night where it won't constantly be delayed by football! Here on the East Coast the show was delayed by more than an hour. DVRs get confused and writers get antsy. It could be worse. We could be David Caruso fans. ...

'The Amazing Race' Season 17, Episode 6 Recap

['The Amazing Race' - 'Run, Babushka, Run'] Usually a drag race involves cars, motor oil and testosterone. But you can never predict what it might mean on 'The Amazing Race' -- this week's "drag race" was a little less automobile, a little more Greenwich Village Halloween Parade. Still, brawn may be more helpful than brains at times. The teams never know what's ahead of them on the race. As...

'The Amazing Race' Season 17, Episode 5 Recap

['The Amazing Race' - 'Tastes Like a Million Dollars!'] Do you know what's amazing? Phil Keoghan's eyebrow raising abilities. Sure, it's 'The Amazing Race' and that in itself is amazing. But, just how does he do that? I tried, but can only do it when I close the other eye. It ends up looking like I have an uncontrollable tic. Phil did the eyebrow raise twice in succession tonight for the...

'The Amazing Race' Season 17, Episode 4 Recap

['The Amazing Race' - 'We Should Have Brought Gloves and Butt Pads'] Ice, ice baby. The teams went from the extreme heat of Ghana to the Arctic Circle for this leg. Sure, it's a drastic change of cultures. But they might find themselves wishing for just a bit of heat once again. They should have realized that you always need to be careful what you wish for. And, on 'The Amazing Race' you're...

'The Amazing Race' Season 17, Episode 3 Recap

['The Amazing Race' - 'In Phil We Trust'] OK, teams ... who's ready for a geography quiz? Not just any old quiz, but one on African geography. Any takers? After all, you are on the continent. The very least we'd expect is that you have an inkling about where you might be. No, don't try to turn this on us. We're not on the show. If we're totally ignorant regarding what country is where on the...

'The Amazing Race' Season 17, Episode 2 Recap

['The Amazing Race' - 'A Kiss Saves the Day'] Last week we dipped our toes in to feel how the water was in the latest season of 'The Amazing Race.' It was our first look at the teams and the last glance we'd have of one team. While the new "Express Pass" was introduced, we didn't see the standard Roadblock and Detour. This week we cannonballed right into the action. We're talking Roadblock,...

'The Amazing Race' Season 17, Episode 1 (Season Premiere) Recap

['The Amazing Race' - 'They Don't Call It the Amazing Race for Nothin'!'] Teams ready? Let's go! Just hearing the theme music for the show gets my adrenaline going. If there's one reality show that folks tend to go on as much for the adventure as the possible winnings, it's 'The Amazing Race.' As a result, I think the show often attracts a more interesting cast. They're not all bartenders or...

'Big Brother 12' Winner Named (Season Finale Recap)

Who won 'Big Brother 12'? What a long strange trip this season has been. Sure, that can be said for most seasons of the ultimate hamster-watching. Yet, the game play this season, coupled with the lack of diversity in casting, made for a genuinely odd summer in the 'Big Brother' house. It's the season of the witch and of the dodos. But even more than that, it's the season of the Brigade --...

'Big Brother 12' Season 12, Episode 29 Recap

['Big Brother 12' - 'Never Seen Before Footage Clips'] Yes, it's that time in the 'Big Brother' season. You know, the final hamsters are trapped in the house, possibly pulling a Donner Party due to boredom, and we get treated to the old walk down Memory Lane. Ah, but we've been promised "never seen before footage"! How exciting is that? Whatever do they have in store for us? Perhaps we'll...
