  1. I believe that after that fall Jessie made it to Stage 3 in the Japanese version of the show in the fall of 2017. You can find it on YouTube, it’s pretty amazing.

    The border patrol guy couldn’t do the slippery ramp in episode 1 this year. Also the diving/poetry in motion Detour took bromance so much time to do racers from two later arriving planes passed them. I don’t think anything has changed in terms of level of challenge difficulty. Generally I think that challenges that are actually impossible for a team to complete are design failures. Every challenge should be theoretically possible for the contestants in each race. Of the ones you listed the meatblock was a bad idea and potentially dangerous health wise. The haystacks were probably very bad luck/a missed clue. The others were teams being far worse at something than anyone expected.

    The Marvel Cinematic Universe: The Avengers, etc.

    I got it! Reeves should play Kang the Conqueror, the tyrant from the future who goes up against the Avengers. The Avengers travel to the far future to Kang’s era and discover his real identity: Ted (Theodore) Logan gone mad.

    DC Comics: Rebirth and Reboot

    So many awesome memories with Vertigo Comics. Sandman, Books of Magic, Swamp Thing, Hellblazer, 100 Bullets, Fables, Lucifer, Unwritten, Y the Last Man. That was my list. Someone else could have an entirely different list of titles that moved them. Real life tidbit: I’m a playwright who has written sci-fi based plays with some success. If I had to accurately describe my aesthetic, it’d be “plays that are secretly Backdoor Vertigo proposals.” I did in fact send in a proposal for a Books of Magic spinoff some two decades ago. As I didn’t have a clue what I was doing it was rightfully ignored.

    BTW, I liked the tactical decision that C&C and T&C made at the U-Turn. Someone was going to use it from the teams running behind them, and they didn't care who, so leave it alone and stay out of the crossfire. Good read of the other teams.

    Honestly if you told me that that wasn't a real town but a Wes Anderson film set I would believe you. It's so unbelievably quaint I"m shocked this is the first I've heard of this place. I don't see the locals as rude! The racers were actually messing up people's transits. It wasn't their fault, exactly, and the racers were properly contrite, but it was still messing up people's days. To the poster upthread wondering if recent racers were more in shape than racers of the past, I dunno. The border agents seemed pretty out of shape. Team Bromance didn't seem terribly fit though to be fair I don't remember them struggling physically at any point. Corinne and Eliza didn't seem to be the most physically gifted team. I think this seemed to be an average to above average cast, physically. It was a surprise when Victor revealed that he had a pole vaulting background. I generally support Becca, but she's gotta learn some self control when she's dealt with adversity so that the first thing out of her mouth isn't a "joking" threat of assault. If her reaction was to step away and yell "Dammit! We're so stupid!" for two minutes that's one thing. But externalizing her mistake (and Floyd's) into someone else who's just doing his job isn't cool.

    I'm glad that there is once again a team I can hate with the full force of my heart.

    This had to be the most catastrophic loss in any Finals series/Championship of all time with two huge stars knocked out of the subsequent season with injuries. As a franchise they’d have been much better off if they’d have lost to Houston.

    Brady didn't blow out his knee making a cut. He blew out his knee because another guy rammed into it sideways with great force. The big What If? to that injury is what if the RB blocked the blitzer better. The football injury that the Durant injury most resembles is the RGIII playoff game. Griffin came back gimpy for a big game, aggravated the existing injury on a noncontact play, and was never the same afterward.

    S31.E09: Let's Split!

    I remember the two poker playing women who couldn’t physically do either side of a Detour. They kept switching until Phil came to eliminate them.

    S31.E09: Let's Split!

    I know I was expecting Colin to absolutely smoke that snorkeling task, Bowling Moms overtake redux. When he switched it told me volumes. If there was a correct way to do the snorkeling task none of these teams were going to find it.

    Good. It sucked and no one wanted more of that.

    Well if Colin can't do the snorkeling task no one was going to. What, they didn't make them perform a poem in Croatian? An old school feeling episode with three tiers of flights. It's cool when a task falls right into Floyd's very specific skillset like this and the nightclub task.

    Australia-Italy seems to have been the most exciting match so far.
