Two episodes in and I'm still kind of bored... and the nerds, I mean... the Yoda line was kind of embarrassing.
I think they really need some kind of major game changer though. I'm not sure what they can do... maybe swap the team members at the beginning of the show or maybe have the teams start at different locations in the world and meet up at the same location for the pitstop or something. I dunno, I'm not clever enough to invent new game mechanics, but I kind of feel that they should do something.
I think it is just fine, I'm not bored at all, this is how the amazing race is, and I like it, I don't want changes, they've already changed it enough from the first few seasons.
