    Obviously, you aren't in the Buffy forum, where we actually spoiler tag stuff that happened 20 years ago! Besides, maybe people had forgotten details of that one (after all, it was 18 years ago) or are late viewers to TAR and missed that season. The only reason I own it is because I had missed that season (only that season, thank you very much) and wanted to see it and saw it for sale about...I want to say 10 years...after it originally aired.

    Technically, it's twice---once in TAR01 and once with the poker girls (although not mentioned on camera), who couldn't do either side of the detour (in a post-show interview, they mentioned how they would've had that penalty). It probably still does exist. It's just that there hasn't been an opportunity to apply it. When was the last time the "4 hour penalty for not completing a Roadblock" was applied?

    It is indeed actually Team X. That's why they took that bad bus (I think it departed about 12 hours after they had won the FF). Personally, I had wanted Team X to lose (Karma for an incident at the airport a few episodes earlier, involving Team Y).

    S01 Talk

    Just saw a TAR01 Fast Forward, where there were two teams several hours behind the other teams. The only two teams who were eligible (i.e. hadn't done one yet) were those two teams. Both, of course, knew that their only chance was to do the FF. The challenge? Take a bowl of coins and place one coin in each pot (108 pots). The trick? Your bowl had to have exactly 108 coins--too many or too few and you had to get another bowl and start over. Basically, a "needle in a haystack" challenge. Both teams were doing it at the same time. Team "X" wins and nicely tells Team "Y" to just take a boat to get to the thing, rather than take a taxi and drive around, saving them time. End result--Team "X" actually finishes last (team 5 of 5). However, Team "Y" basically blew off the Detour (which was not related to the boat/taxi advice), so gets penalized 24 hours, eliminating them instead!

    Just wanted to say that I've started watching TAR 01 again (own the DVD) and it is almost unrecognizable compared to recent TARs. You only see Phil if you are about to get eliminated (the greeter tells you "you are team # 2"), there is no "for finishing first you get this prize", the clues have to be figured out ("climb to the 2nd level of the Eiffel Tower and take in the telescopic view, it's monumental" meant "use the telescope to search for the yellow and white (red came later) flag (which said "monumental" on it) to figure out where to go next"), the Fast Forwards (remember those?), everyone trying figure out transportation (I swear, they must have spent 15-20 minutes of the first episode trying to get out of the initial city!!), etc. It's certainly a different animal these days. (First episode aired Sep 5 2001, but was obviously filmed the previous winter/spring (snow in the background of starting city)).

    Wasn't on Cold Case. You've confused him with John Billingsley, who incidentally is a Buffyverse alum (on an episode of Angel).

    Don't forget "Omoo". And, for me "Esau"---I swear, if I'm ever asked "Who is Esau's twin?" I will have no answer, since Esau is the only one they ever mention in crosswords.
