So, first impressions on TAR, family style (Amazing Race 8), before my medication takes effect.
The family concept worked better than expected. I liked it.
Most of the families are likable. I liked seeing some kids in this game, and damn, ain’t Carissa Gaghan adorable?
My favorite team so far are the Aiellos — good guys, funny and likable. They won me when they started to joke about spooning.
Most of the others I’m still forming an opinion on, but my favorite tasty treat is Brittney Rogers, who clearly needs to be licked all over, and I gotta say, I wanna see all three Linz Brothers pull a train on little sister Megan.
And then there are the villians. Every TAR has to have a couple. This time it’s the jesus freak Weaver clan, who are just going to have to be bent over, spanked and corn-holed if they say ‘lord’ or ‘jesus’ one more time; and then there are the Paolos, who would be ok if someone fucking gagged them all. Just make them stop talking. Make. Them. Stop.
As usual, the first episode was hard to track with so many teams. It always hits speed around the third. But so far it looks like they’re keeping the standard up. This is the definitive reality teevee show as far as I’m concerned, it deserves all the awards it wins. And I’m glad I don’t have to see Rob and Amber on this one, they brought TAR7 down. If they do any more celebrity TARs, it needs to be an all-celeb edition to keep it fair.
Mmm. Medication. Me like medication.
