'The Amazing Race' - 'You're Like Jason Bourne, Right?'

Carol and Brandy lug incense on 'The Amazing Race'
(S16E08) Tonight will make or break this season's strongest team, Jet and Cord, on 'The Amazing Race.' I know some folks might say they aren't the strongest team as they came in last in the previous leg and were only saved by it being a non-Philimination leg. But I beg to differ. They definitely had a bad leg; they most certainly screwed up by not reading a clue. Even taking that into consideration, they're the strongest team. They seem to be up to almost every task thrown their way, and they work well together as a team. Can they overcome the speed bump and continue the race?

The Amazing Race: It Was Like a Caravan of Idiots

Tammy and Victor on The Amazing Race

(S14E04) In the promos for this week's The Amazing Race, they promised us Siberia and a Blind U-Turn. Well, I know a bit about Siberia -- it's very cold. The plain old U-Turn on this show has its own coldness, too. But a "Blind" one? What could that be? Do they don blindfolds and pick a team at random like in pin the tail on the donkey? Nope. It's something even colder than Siberia itself.

It's to Portland for the TAR season finale
(S13E11) It's down to the finish line for The Amazing Race. Which team will win the million dollars? Could it be Team Dandrew, the Bumbling Dunderheads? They have the dubious honor of being the most inept team ever in the final three. Or, will it be Nick and Starr, the siblings with the record for first place finishes at the Pit Stops? Maybe it will be Ken and Tina, the ex-NFL player and his um ... loving wife. Well, not so loving all the time, mind you. Will they find true love back together? Read on past the jump.

The Amazing Race: That is Studly

The Amazing Race

Oh my. We're really getting down to the wire for this season of The Amazing Race, aren't we? Four teams remain going into this leg and we all know the big finale is between the final three teams. It seems like the season just started! But then I think of the teams who have been long gone -- Arthur and Anita as well as my early favorites, Mark and Bill (the comic book guys). I'm definitely satisfied with two of the teams going into tonight's episode. One team, not so much. But one team really shouldn't be there. Read on!

The Amazing Race: I'm Like an Angry Cow

Moo-ve it - we have a race to win!
(S13E08) "Moo! Moo!" - Dallas, the happy cow.

Well, not all happy cows come from California. However, one particularly angry cow stomped through the streets of Kazakhstan in tonight's episode of The Amazing Race. Some teams on the show are a joy to watch and make for happy cows. Some are just cranky. Yet others are bumbling dunderheads. A few teams are a mix. But I have my favorite team for the win. Moo-ve along to past the jump for my review of tonight's show.

Dandrew is confused in Delhi
(S13E07) Dazed and confused in both New and Old Delhi, it's time for The Amazing Race teams to step up to the plate and prove they want the million dollars. Sure, it's a confusing place. But standing in the middle of the street looking lost probably isn't the best approach. Ah, but some teams whine, some get to bickering, some wimp out when the times get tough. Then again, others go all out and go for the gold. Or -- in tonight's episode -- the gold, the green, the pink, and more! Read on for my full review of the show.

Dandrew irons on The Amazing Race
(S13E06) Moms, don't let your boys grow up to be non-ironers. Let 'em by cowboys, let 'em be frats. But, whatever you do, make sure they know the basics of laundry. It's a life skill which may come in handy if they're ever on The Amazing Race. The remaining teams headed off to India for this leg of the race. India is one of those countries which always provide teams with frustration on the roads, but some had their own frustrations with each other. Read on for the full review of tonight's show.

Toni and Dallas, mother and son team on The Amazing Race
(S13E05) "His haircut makes him look like Teen Wolf." - Either Kelly or Christy about Dallas.

Kelly and Christy's impressions of Dallas not withstanding, I think that Dallas and Toni are the best son and mother team ever to be on The Amazing Race. Of course, the only other mother and son I can think of was a few years back and they had issues. Dallas might not know where New Zealand or Cambodia are, but he's got a great relationship with him Mom. I'm cheering on Teen Wolf and the Wolf Mother! But how did they make out tonight? Read on!

Aja and Ty are learning a lot about each other on TAR

(S13E04) "Okay, Fidel. Are you done now?" - Ty to Aja

Before I get into my review of tonight's The Amazing Race, I ask that you please bear with me as I must go into an atypical anti-sports delaying my show rant. CBS, you do this to me every Sunday night. Knock it off. If it's not golf, it's football. If it's not football or golf, it's baseball. Enough already. If shows are going to be consistently delayed, just go ahead and schedule them an hour later. That way DVRs could be set, the CBS scheduling won't interfere with other networks, and I could actually watch a show in the 8 PM block if TAR isn't expected until 9 PM. None of this fifteen or forty-five minute stuff, delay to the hour if you must. And change those schedules around! Thank you.

You may return to your regularly scheduled review now ...

The Amazing Race: Did You Push My Sports Bra Off the Ledge?

Fighting on tonight's The Amazing Race

(S13E03) "I know she pushed my sports bra off the ledge!" - Christy about Starr

While the sports bra debacle wasn't the only drama on tonight's episode of The Amazing Race, it played a role one and off throughout the show. And, I'm sure we haven't heard the last of it. while the animosity within the teams seemed to dwindle some this week, the animosity between a few of the teams is amping up. That's a good thing as far as I'm concerned. I find racers who constantly bicker with their partners really annoying. But when teams are contentious with other teams, it gives them more of a spirit of competition. Read on for my review!

Another airport fiasco on The Amazing Race
(S13E02) "He's a ball of emotion." - Sarah about Terence

Sure, Terence could very well be a "ball of emotion." But this week's episode of The Amazing Race might be better titled a "Ball of Confusion." I'm not talking only about the inevitable airport fiasco we're privy to each week. I'm talking about so many errors made by so many teams. Tonight's drama within the teams stepped up a bit more than what we saw last week.

Anita and Arthur from The Amazing Race

(S13E01) "The bees are much calmer than all of this!" - Anita to Arthur

Well, The Amazing Race has won yet another Emmy and tonight we were treated to the premiere of the new season. I've decided this is never a show to watch just before retiring for the night. The pace on the viewers might not be as frantic as for the racing teams. But as the music builds and things get frantic, it's better than a caffeine rush! Read on past the jump for the skinny on the show.

Phil Kepghan hosts The Amazing RaceThe fall season of The Amazing Race is set to premiere on Sunday, September 28, at 8 PM ET/PT. Although it seems to be a bit early, CBS has already announced the teams. Looking at them, it seems my pre-season spoilers were indeed spot on. The aged hippies exist!

Phil Keoghan returns as the host of this Emmy-winning race around the world and I'm looking forward to another season of whirlwind excitement. You can check out the new teams in the gallery below and read on past the jump for more about them.

The Amazing Race: The Final Push (season finale)

by Jackie Schnoop, posted Jan 20th 2008 10:45PM
Phil Keoghan hosts The Amazing Race(S12E11) You know, it's tough to actually like all three teams racing for the finish line on The Amazing Race. Other seasons there have always been teams I so didn't want to win the million dollars. This year, what can I say?

The three teams in the run for the win include a father and daughter team, a grandfather and his grandson, and a rather offbeat mellow new-agey, yet throwback couple who get along together amazingly well.

My favorite team coming out of the gate this season was Kynt and Vyxsin, but they're long gone. It's been the Ronald and Christina show the past few weeks. Was it tonight? Finale spoilers after the jump!

The Amazing Race: Sorry, Guys, I'm Not Happy to See You

Phil Keoghan hosts The Amazing Race(S12E10) Ohh ... it's the penultimate episode of The Amazing Race, determining which three teams will race to the finish on next week's season finale.

Now, I've been rather vocal about one team in particular I really want off of my TV set and out of my nightmares -- Jennifer and Nathan. I'm so adamant that I want them gone that I declared them my favorite team last week (and encouraged readers to join in with me) in an effort to jinx them.

Did our valiant efforts and chanting work? After all, it's rare that I enjoy all three teams in the finale. Could it be...? After the jump.
