The Amazing Race

[TV] While it was being repeated on Sunday mornings I got addicted to an old series of The Amazing Race. Seven/Prime is serving my fellow addicts & I our next hit tomorrow night (Thursday) at 8.30pm. Basically a bunch of teams of Americans are set loose upon the world, chasing clues and doing challenges and every couple of weeks a team is eliminated. Why would they subject themselves to the sadistic and mercurial will of some unseen (executive producer) force, stress their relationships, risk injury and international incidents? They say personal growth, but we all know they just want the $1 million dollars!

If you've got time & energy to commit to another series, this is a worthy one; if you don't, avoid it or you'll get addicted too. I forsee ratings problems though; up against Kath & Kim on ABC and Law & Order: SVU on Ten it might struggle & get bumped to some irrelevant late night slot.
