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 ...

Amazing Race 19 – Ep 9 Commentary – That’s A Whole Lotta Skin

Within 24 hours we witnessed the death of the Super Committee in Washington and the rebirth of the Super Leg in the Amazing Race. Ending speculation that there was another non-elimination leg before the end, the Show has produced a Super Leg where Phil sends the Racers back on the course and likely on their way to some sleep-deprived mistakes. This week’s installment produced some high comedy and loads of fun before the Peytons won their trip to Panama and the cold realization that this [...]

The Amazing Race, Nov. 20 – “Copin’ and Hangin’”

It will be interesting this week on The Amazing Race to see if the U-Turn choices last week will have any affect on the remaining teams. Choices were made last week without thought of the social game that is played here. Ernie and Cindy chose to U-Turn Bill and Cathi not to stay in the game, but just to win first place on that leg. If they question Ernie and Cindy, other teams might question them for choosing the Laurence and Zac, who ended up [...]

Amazing Race 19 Commentary – Ep 8 – We’re Gonna Go With Speckles

Now that is more like it. This was a great episode of The Amazing Race following a couple of, forgive me, speed bumps the last couple of weeks. It had unbelievably bad mistakes – some of which managed to not be killer. It had curious decisions, great comebacks and the most kick ass rabbit since this guy. Racers left the poverty of Malawi and made the Race’s first ever stop in Denmark. It is hard to believe that after 19 seasons there are still places [...]

The Amazing Race, Nov. 13 – Making “Sweaty-Ass Butter”

According to the previews, they’re pulling out the Double U-Turn again this week. Apparently last week’s didn’t have enough of an effect, so they need to double up their efforts to get their money’s worth out of the gimmick. I have to admit that’s kind of disappointing. Between all the U-Turns and non-elimination legs, the racers’ heads must be spinning. The first team to leave Sunbird Livingstonia Beach in Malawi is once again Andy and Tommy at 3:12 PM. I have to say this seems [...]

Amazing Race 19 Commentary – Ep 7 – Y’all Got No Babies Up There?”

Well, tonight we learned a very important Race lesson – actually, we learned two lessons. Now, I am not sure that most of us really needed to learn these lessons, as at least I thought that basic logic would take care of it. However, two Racers seem to have needed a crash course in Friggin Obvious Race Skills. The first lesson – don’t just stand around. Unless the Roadblock is a test of how long you can stand in one place – and I think [...]

The Amazing Race, Nov. 6 – “I Guess This Is Africa”

Is it just me or is The Amazing Race having a lot of non-elimination legs? It seems like they’re having them every other week. I was glad to see it last week, though, as Amani and Marcus have been running a good race and mostly just had bad luck last week. It seemed like there were only minutes between them and the first place finishers, Andy and Tommy. If that’s the case, even with a Speed Bump, Amani and Marcus have a good shot at [...]

Amazing Race 19 – Ep 6 Commentary – Toys From Trash For Tots

It’s taken me a while to put this week’s column together, basically because this was an empty calorie episode – fun to watch, but not really good for you. And you know how much I dislike criticizing the Amazing Race. It’s like when your mom does something to disappoint you – it just makes you feel sad. It had nothing to do with procrastination, of course. But if you ask me about it, I’ll get back to you later. This makes two consecutive weeks of [...]

The Amazing Race, Oct. 30 – Time to Cut the Hay

I was finally put out of my misery last week with the elimination of Liz and Marie. Not that I didn’t like them as a team, as I did. It was just impossible to tell them apart. Actually, there aren’t really any teams this season that I don’t like. It’s an fun season. The first team to leave Bangkok, Thailand, are Amani and Marcus at 7:22 AM. Their clue tells them fly to Lilongwe, Malawi, in Africa, where they’ll head to a Tobacco Warehouse to [...]

Amazing Race 19 Commentary – Ep 5 – An Elephant’s Word Is 100%

I meant what I said, and I said what I meant. Horton notwithstanding, one this is also for sure – elephants are greatly entertaining. Or if you’re the Twins, they are the equal to the reaction of a Girl Scout Troup at a Justin Bieber concert. The elephants were the best part of this episode, and as you know, it pains me to criticize The Amazing Race because even its poorest episodes would be better than most of the crap you can find out there.
