    Or the big green salad and freshly baked bread!

    It's a catch-22: if they finally start catching animals and game (rather than just fish, mice and slugs), we're probably going to see more of the gory details. I'm wondering if that moose is this season's wolf.

    But what is Jill wearing underneath? It's certainly not lacy.

    It was a toss-up for me. I didn't think I did, but then in this episode I'm going "Wait, there's a Brady?"

    I don't know how much baby teeth are a predictor of permanent teeth problems, but Izzy looks like he's headed for braces while Sam's teeth look OK.

    Don't you also have to pedal in sync on a tandem bike? With 2 people of significantly different heights like Nicole and Victor, that might be very difficult. In fact, they might have the most height difference of any of the remaining teams. Also, the bikes were preset and could not be adjusted by the teams (as far as we saw). Even Christie had a problem getting on the first time. I would think that the eggs would be safer in the box behind Nicole with the cheeses rather than in her lap, but I wasn't there, and they did transport the eggs safely. ITA. When they were cycling back to get more eggs, Becca looked at the camera and said "I am pissed!" with so much venom in her voice that I thought "Whoa, girl, it was your fault for not checking the eggs after you jumped."

    This. Many of the situations the teams got into, while looking like slap-stick from my side of the TV screen, were in fact potentially dangerous. I liked that old guy, he could have been me. Does anyone know what day of the week that segment was filmed? I'm wondering if it was a Sunday afternoon, which would normally have more people out than a week day, and the Race handlers did not account for that.

    The editing had me really confused. It looked like they were on 3 different flights to Amsterdam, yet they all arrived at the tandem bikes at the same time. Later, Colin and Christie and Tyler and Corey arrive at the U-turn board at the same time - just those 2 teams - and yet in the next scene the Afghanimals were there with them at the cars. The editing used to be so good on this show. *sigh* I am so over this, not just on TAR but on other shows as well. These days, if a straight guy consistently commented on his sexuality or made a lewd comment about a woman, it wouldn't make it on the air, or he wouldn't have made it on the show to begin with. Being gay has nothing to do with success on the show. It's not like Floyd being a drum major, which helped him with several specific tasks during the race. Certainly the Afghanimals have proved that you can mug and be assholes on the show without making sexual comments. I thought the detour tasks were kind of stupid (although Christie was clearly glad it was a fake cow), but I loved the canal boats, especially the occasional map reveals showing who was where. That was some serious old school TAR.

    I think that, for me, the show has pretty much run it's course. There doesn't seem to be anything new or different from week to week. It doesn't help that they have a lot of episodes every season. There's none of the sense of excitement that I have for a show that's been off the air for a while coming back for a new season. Has anyone else noticed that they now only get 4 days instead of 5 days for the final task? I wonder how that came about and what consequences it has.

    I find the Power Tower challenge boring. I just don't care for head to head match-ups.

    I remember a road mentioned when they were on Vancouver Island, but last season they were in Mongolia.

    And if IIRC, this was the same leg where Team Z, not in contact with any other teams, thought they were far ahead and booked a terrible 24 hour bus connection that almost negated the 24 hour penalty of the other team. (Or at least the editing would have you think that it was close.) Good times. It would never happen in today's TAR.
