    It started on time.

    I wish we could watch your show from Canada, like you can watch the U.S. Is there a web site like CBS, where you can watch past episodes?


    My comment on the show? To many teams yet, but TAR gave good tv time to most of the teams. So far I like the 2 NFL players.

    I don't know who I like yet. I can tell you one thing that I didn't like...the screaming from Jamal and Leo. That's going to get old fast!! :sad2:

    Or maybe I am just being extra irritable because I have a horribly painful ear infection!

    :rotfl2:

    And if it was the son - at 46 - I'd be weirdly disappointed in myself as he's SO young. ;)

    I like that you're admitting! :lmao:

    I missed the premiere tonight. I was on a never ending GO bus. :sad2:

    But I did have a *show* nonetheless. I sat with about six very drunk young boys who discussed what girl was hot and how one was very attracted to a girl but her name was Helga and he just couldn't get past it. :rotfl2::lmao::rotfl2:

    Oh youth. :thumbsup2

    The final episode is still on here - as is the post race hoopla episode ---- http://www.ctv.ca/TheAmazingRaceCanada.aspx

    If for some reason you're blocked - I doubt it since your government doesn't annoy you all with online programming blocks - but if you are try:

    Tunnel Bear and set the retro dial to CAN.

    But the final episode does not include our favourite team Jet and Dave.

    No they are annoying.. and I don't have an ear infection:rotfl2:

    I am liking the Bingo guys. Rowan is pretty funny!!

    Not a fan of the first place team tonight. And I love the way that TAR wrote the directions today. Pay attention guys!

    So far I like the Dr.'s and the theater guys. The one dating couple from New England seems ok too, although she seems to be really excitable, which can personally get annoying for me, but we'll see. The nfl guys were ok too I guess. There's a good amount of teams I didn't like though - both girl teams, the annoying loud guys, the guys who live in the woods and the "exes" couple.

    Normally I'm an outdoorsy girl, but I agree the woods guys appear to be a bit on the creepy side right now. The one redeeming thing I found on the baseball wife team(seriously do they need the money?) was when she said I want my son to know that I can follow my dream too. That just made her seem more real to me, like she doesn't just want to be a pretty baseball wife.

    It was good! Phil was tweeting during the episode. It was pretty cool to get his comments/feedback. (They were spoiler free.)

    I think the doctors will be a strong team. Hope they have learned their lesson about reading clues! I also like the guys from OK. Have a feeling they won't be around long. I didn't mind that the Father/daughter went first. I was turned off when he said she should have an arranged marriage.

    Will this be our "official" discussion thread? I don't believe there is another. If so, can the OP change the title? Also, can we keep it spoiler free? If you want spoilers, we can start another spoiler free thread.

    I totally agree. I think the loud guys would be more likeable if they didn't do that yip, yip, yip thing. To me it's right on par with TWINNIE, TWINNIE.

    Yes they need to read those clues better, I know they are in a hurry but still it is really important when to know if you can cab it or not.

    I too wanted Jet and Dave to win on the Canadian one. Last night when they got to the pit stop I told my daughter to look for any flowers or symbols they might have to know at the end. :lmao:

    I really wanted to like the New England couple because the guy is from the town next to mine but she just annoyed me. She had to tell everyone that she graduated HS at 16, finished college in 3 years and has 2 Master's degrees. Just rubbed me the wrong way.

    The yelling brothers remind me of the twinnies.



    I like the doctors and the NFL guys best so far. I'm sure I'll change my mind as the season goes along, I always do :lmao:

    Sort of a weak premiere last night, IMO. There wasn't a really complicated Road Block, so for the most part there wasn't any chance for the bottom 4 teams to catch the first 7. It all came down to the first drive to the airport.

    Not sure who I'm rooting for yet.

    Hi everyone! I love AR too! My sister and I always secretly say we would be such a good team because we love to travel and she would be so good and things I wouldn't be, and vice versa.

    Last night they were announcing (locally I think) that there will be tryouts for the show in a town very near us. I told my sister to get herself a flight up here so we could go to it. :rotfl2: So much for daydreaming ... :rolleyes:

    Anyway .... I'm still trying to figure out who I like best. It'll be a few weeks before I really get a good feel for the teams and get a favorite. Funny how they started this show and the last season's opener with parachuting. That scenery from Bora Bora last season took my breath away!

    The one guy (not sure which) is seriously going to have to take it down a notch.

    I completely agree. The 4 teams on the second flight didn't stand a chance. The challenges were pretty straight forward so nothing that could have really slowed the first 7 down enough to not get to the mat in time.

    Too early to know who I'm rooting for. I like the doctors so far, but we'll see.

    I was disappointed, too, that there was no way to catch up. That bored me. There were a LOT of teams I did not like, too. The ice chicks, the baseball wives, the team that came in first, the dating couple, the father/daughter, the screamers..

    I really like the football players, the bingo guys, the doctors, and the guys from Oklahoma.

    I hope the whole season isn't as annoying and lame as last night...

    I like it more when the race used to be just your "average joe's" who could use the money--what is there 3 teams on here that are related to professional sports to some degree?
    There are the 2 who are the LA King ice crew girls, the 2 former NFL players, the 2 wives of MLB players---maybe they need the money who knows just think they shouldn't have a season with this many on it.
    I like the couple Jason and Amy so far and am sure that the squabbling between Tim and Marie is going to get old fast.
    I love the AR so look forward to the weeks ahead!

    I like the Doctors too but I thought for sure they messed up because didn't he parasail an then didn't he take the boat out to get the fish? I thought that had to be the other person and I kept waiting for that to come up...especially when it did for the other teams.
