THE AMAZING RACE | 14×01: “Don’t Let a Cheese Hit Me”

In The Amazing Race on February 16, 2009 at 3:31 pm

I’m glad they started doubling up on installments of the Race. One a year just wasn’t quite enough. Loved the refurbished title theme and graphics package! The first episode of a season is exciting as the beginning of a journey, but about halfway through it becomes a challenge: far too early in the season, far too many teams to keep track of, much less root for. Surprisingly, this energetic premiere managed to buck a few of these rules.

It seems like a good mix of teams…few of them blend together so far, which at this early stage is a good sign. I’m liking Mel & Mike — if they continue to communicate in bitchy television references, they’ll make for reliable comic relief. And how awesome are Margie & Luke? Even stoic Phil got worked up about their first-place finish (though his blog comments make me wonder about how long they’ll be around). If this first hour is any indication, it’s going to be a tear-jerking thrill ride.
