I wonder what type of security CBS provides due to the increasing anti-american attitudes in the world. In addition to the very poor manners that these contestants usually exhibit.

Given that the whole race has already been filmed, I would wager that it was all filmed before the war started, perhaps before the war was even an option. As for AR5, should be interesting to see where they go. Probably not any blatantly anti-American countries.

So, that leaves...

Hm...

A little help? I just hope that there will be a TAR5.

It'll be a grueling trip up to, and back from Toronto.

this seems just a good a place as any (it's also posted in the Cases/Covers forum, but perhaps a more TAR-centric audience will provide better sugestions).

Thoughts/feedbacks/suggestions on the following cover for my DVD collection of Amazing Race 1? I plan on adding text to the back image, but would like thoughts/comments on the front design (it needs to blend better I think) and a spine idea.



There's some "touching up" to do as well, but this gives you the general idea.

AGREED! TAR is the BEST (reality) Show on TV for me. I have watched every episode starting from season 2 (second episode). I don't think it is possible to top the emotional trainwreck that is Flo ... but here's hoping they try!
I am not ashamed to admit the theme song for the show gets me excited and my heart pumping but in a good way!

in this leg of the course, contestants have to hire a taxi from inside iraq to the other side of the syrian border. once inside syria, they will make their way to Damascus via underground tunnels. once in Damascus, they must skillfully maneuver through a mine field laced with barbed wire and other snares, penetrate a well-guarded mansion, and assasinate the exiled Saddam Hussein.

I'm hoping they just transition into The Amazin Race after Survivor ends in a few weeks. That way I don't have to reprogram my VCR.

TAR airs on Wednesday at 9pm ... unless I am mistaken?

I saw the promo for BB4 which should air in a couple of months. Either CBS will do BB4 and TAR together or follow TAR after BB4 has run its course.

It would seem very unlikely. A "best of" Survivor Season One sold poorly, and it is/was immensely more popular than Amazing Race.

It would be cool to see the re-runs of old TARs on the Travel Channel or something though.

That sounds like a hit! How much you wanna bet some Fox exec is going to pitch this as a show next season and claim it as his own idea? Actually, that's the perfect name for it too..."The Hit"

Didn't they air second runs of TAR on UPN? I vaguely remember this.
