Amazing Race – I Philiminated You

November 3, 2005 by  

I’ve been a fan of The Amazing Race for a long time now. I mean, a big fan…I even gave up Gilmore Girls last year for it. When I first heard that TAR was going to a “family” format this season, I predicted it was going to suck, but I thought I would give it a shot…just because I’m a fan and that’s what fans do. So I tried it out, and now every Tuesday at 9pm when The Amazing Race starts it’s theme music, I’m sitting there, in front of my TV, watching My Name is Earl. I came, I saw and I left completely bummed. The family edition of The Amazing Race lacks the emotion and excitement of the traditional version. Rather than being concerned whether the team was going to pass out before reaching the top of the mountain, I found myself worrying if the kids got enough sleep or not. Jetting from country to country, never knowing where the teams were going to go next was part of the fun, now I’m concerned about the effects of the jet lag on this kids. Having kids involved is a cute idea, but not one that should have ever come to fruition on CBS. Jerry Bruckheimert should have brought this idea to Nickeloden. You know, put it on after Family Double Dare or something.

Oh and Bruckheimer and TAR producers….sorry but I really like My Name is Earl (Tues 9pm), and I LOVE The Office (Tues 9:30pm), so I can’t promise I’ll be back for The Amazing Race Season 9.

Thanks to whomever it was that gave me the Jerry Bruckheimer heads up.
