The Amazing Race starts tonight, y'all! Is it just me, or is there insufficient chatter going on? I have no qualms about declaring this my favorite show on television. "So bold, Mikey!", you say. True, friends, but I have to be me. Given that, I do have some concerns about this new season, TAR Family-stizz. With kids about, how can the challenges not be more simplistic? Will they really have kids on a train for 20 hours? Sleeping on the streets? I doubt it. Key to the appeal for me is the "fish out of water" aspect of throwing people already under duress of long travel into cultures and environments strange to them. I guess time will tell how the season goes. My fears are not assuaged, though, by the rumors that tonight the teams travel all the way from Brooklyn to Philadelphia. I think I could BIKE that in a day.
Added: I think the editing on this show is near genius. Also, Phil's ability to move his eyebrows completely independent of one another is part of what makes the Race amazing.
