The Voice, Oct. 21 – Real Battles

These battles continue to blow me away. They are all so good that I'd rather have them just keep them around as duets. If you listen to the iTunes ...

It's the last of the blind auditions. None of the coaches have many spots left on their team, and they're all being super-picky. Cee Lo Green, of course, has the ...

There's nothing better than great editing that shows contestants being pompous, only to end up eating those words later on. One team member starts out calling his team "survivors and ...

Amazing Race 22 – Finale – Skating Through The Finale In DC

Yeah, I know. I lied. Work and 150 hours of Survivor just got in the way. The Two Hour Finale was basically structured as two stand-alone episodes linked as one. I’ll sum it up as one episode – albeit one with an unexpected elimination halfway through the leg. For me, this was a fun finale – made more enjoyable by the romp through the city where I work each day. I’ve often wondered why the show hasn’t come back to Washington – with just a [...]

Amazing Race 22 – Ep 10 – I Smell Like Haggis And Sweat

Down to the Final Four of the 22nd Race Around the World. Well, 21st Race Around the World. One was a race around North America. And if you want to watch that race – it is on Hulu Plus. That’s right – Seasons 1-11 are available for those signed up for Hulu Plus – I am writing this as I enjoy the incredible debut season of The Amazing Race. I forgot just how perfect that premiere episode was and how unique the show was when [...]

Amazing Race 22 – Ep 8 & 9 – The Amazingly Late Recap Posts

Friends. My apologies. I have been mired in a very busy couple of weeks due to important things at home and the office which have occupied my time. In addition, I have been completely engrossed in reading A Song of Ice and Fire the last few weeks and it has completely taken all of my free time attention. Sadly, my Amazing Race recaps have taken the worst hit. I had half of my Episode 8 one done before I realized that I never finished it. [...]

Amazing Race 22 – Ep 7 – License And Registration Please

Needless to say, I was a bit peeved to see a team which I thought was starting to roll, AND a team for which I finally found a good nickname, managed to mangle the Detour so badly that they got themselves booted from the Race before the Mullets or YouTube. I had high hopes for Pwinnie – the Amazing Race has a great history of great kick-ass female teams, but the list of those great teams is just too small. Beauty Queens. Kisha/Jen. Knat. Pwinnie [...]

Amazing Race 22 – Ep 6 – Putting Scorpions In Your Mouth Is A Thing

The things you learn on the Amazing Race. So, it seems if you put a scorpion in your mouth, you can calm it down so much that you can put in the hand of a freaked out gay web host or wife of a mulleted trapping expert. Not that there is any real reason why you should know that, or any real reason why it should ever be referred to again outside of the Amazing Race. But thanks to this show, we know it. And [...]

Survivor: Caramoan – Ep 7 – The Vanilla Diarrhea Fest

I will say it right now. I love vanilla ice cream. I love vanilla ice cream so much, it would make my list of five foods I cannot do without. I will also say this – blasphemy to some – vanilla ice cream is infinitely better than chocolate ice cream. Not even close. As much of a mismatch as the Reward Challenge was this week. So, how did it get to be that vanilla has become synonymous with bland? Was it this guy? Actually, here’s [...]

Amazing Race 22 – Ep 5 – The Least Dramatic Double U-Turn Ever

This episode had some fun moments, but really, when we have a team give up early on anyone who has watched the Amazing Race all of these years kind of expected that we would be having an impromptu non-elim leg. Because that’s really what it was, even if it wasn’t a true non-elim. You can tell it was not a non-elim leg coupled with an injury elimination because the Mullets do not have a Speed Bump in the next leg. They were just a sixth [...]

Amazing Race 22 – Ep 4 – I Can’t Believe That Actually Happened

That was amazing. For the Amazing Race, that’s saying something. Because, you know, it’s amazing. It’s in the name. Oftentimes, it is amazing in a very good way. In this case, it was amazing in a horribly bad train wreck kind of way. And it happened to the Dudes – specifically Dude John – so it made it all the better. Throw in the fact that it involved the Express Pass and we finally understand why there was just so much drama over its usage [...]

Amazing Race 22 – Ep 3 – Return To Middle Earth

So, this “leg” of the Amazing Race taught me one thing – it seems that you can continue to run the Amazing Race even if you get injured and require assistance. I did not realize that was an option. This is one aspect where the show differs from Survivor – the Amazing Race will give you medical treatment, just as long as you do it while on the course. Last week’s injury suffered by Daddy Ribbon is the focus of this episode, as it turns [...]

Amazing Race 22 – Ep 2 – Where Do They Find These Teams?

Sometimes I wonder about this – same with Survivor – where do the producers find some of these contestants. I know some apply from all around the country. I know some are found by casting directors – S4 Dave/Jeff were found hanging out on the beach – and cast for their looks and perhaps personality. I just wonder about one thing primarily – how do they continually seem to find Racers who it seems have no idea what they are getting themselves into? If you [...]
