PLEASE NOTE: The Reality TV World Message Boards are filled with desperate attention-seekers pretending to be one big happy PG/PG13-rated family. Don't be fooled. Trying to get everyone to agree with you is like herding cats, but intolerance for other viewpoints is NOT welcome and respect for other posters IS required at all times. Jump in and play, and you'll soon find out how easy it is to fit in, but save your drama for your mama. All members are encouraged to read the complete guidelines. As entertainment critic Roger Ebert once said, "If you disagree with something I write, tell me so, argue with me, correct me--but don't tell me to shut up. That's not the American way."

"Spending Way Too Much Time at the Airport"
In seasons past, we have discussed (nay, deplored) the fact that the air travel/ticket procurement takes up an awful lot of air time and tends to be one of the biggest factors (your plane was delayed so you came in last) in deciding who gets booted. This season appears to be stuck in the same airport rut.

We spent the first 40 frigging minutes of last night's episode at the airport! Frankly, after awhile, all airports look alike. The conversations with the desk attendants sound the same. The "surprise" of the less direct route actually being swifter is not exactly, well, a surprise any more. TAR needs to get past the runways and into the race. If I want to see this much of the inside of O'Hare, I'll watch "Airline" (a pretty good show, BTW) or, better still, "Airplane." (Don't call me Shirley).

I think they should assign planes in groups of three or something, like they do with the smaller, charter flights and bus trips - prebought tickets that are assigned based on who gets to airport first.

My two cents.



Attempting to be constructive as well as critical. Won't last.

1. "RE: Spending Way Too Much Time at the Airport"
Airports and the ticket counters are always a source for stress and tension in TAR. The way the race is set up, it can't be avoided. This race, the Teams seemed to act more "rational" at the ticket counter than in TAR5 and so there wasn't as much "tension" nor did the actions of any one team contribute to losing out in the race to the finish mat like it did last race. But the airport scenes did contribute to us getting to know the teams better and to see how they interact with each other - as opposed to reacting within the team in the "in car" scenes.

I agree Ginger. No one should have that much advantage or disadvantage over someone else because of something they have no control over. I like your idea. I think the producers should at least try to do that whenever they can, since it may not work to do it that way all the time.
