I just finished up binge-watching TAR season 1 on Hulu (never saw the first few seasons). Wow, great season! Reminds me of why the earlier seasons were so much better than more recent ones.

First, what a satisfying ending! Loved the winners, loved that the cocky, alloying villains fell way behind, and loved that the so-overconfident team that thought they knew the fastest route there because it was just blocks from their home got beat. Ha! Just love when that happens.

I also loved that finding flights was a much bigger part of the strategy back then. That's always been a part of the show I really liked (even if it puts a team way behind). They've watered down so much of that element in recent years, and added so many "even everyone up" points to keep anyone from getting far ahead.

I so wish they'd go back to just all newbie contestants. They've done way too many "celebrities" and theme seasons in recent years. Just go back to doing what made it so great in the first place.

xx * I just watched 5 to see Colin/Christine race. That poor old guy getting trampled at the starting line, it was sure a different race back then. NT
