Hallelujah! It's over!

Come on February!

ETA, I know I screwed up the format of the topic line. Sowwy.

I don't know what's more exciting...the shots of TAR9, or the Linz victory.

As Rick James would say, it's a celebration, bitches!

I am biased, but my home city? That's what racing SHOULD be. (I'll even ignore the charter flight quibble.) Because they went all around the island for that and it's not easy to do even in good traffic.

Huzzah to the Linzes! Boys call me and we'll discuss the missing poutine roadblock!

I'm so happy for the first and second place finishers. I hate the Weavers and I'm glad we get back to basics in February and not March as originally announced. Woo hoo!

And they went to three places in Montreal that I knew and loved, the Underground City, McGill University and Expo '67. I went to each place as a kid.

It was an hour and 45 minutes too long and I would have liked to see footage of the Weavers muddle through that last geography roadblock, but at least now the blasted season is finally over. To top it off, we got the happy ending, where Anybody But The Weavers won!

I would have been happy with either the Bransens or the Linzes. I wish the Weavers had been Philiminated a la Team Guido and Team Who, but I'll take them finishing far behind.

I enjoyed the ending more than I thought I would. Say what you want about the Weaver's but Rolly really played well. Too bad for him he didn't have much help.

The puzzle at the end was suspenseful and it was nice to have a roadblock right there at the finish line to make things exciting. Hope we'll see more of that in the future.

The 'Family Edition' was not a real good idea overall but it was nice to see some locations here in the good ole US of A that I may never get to see otherwise.

It's over now and we can look forward to February. The preview of the next race looks awesome. See you guys in February.

Me, too!!! I can just see them commenting on all the "ugly" states. We figured they could probably identify and correctly place Florida, but then...?

I agree. The scenes look great. Back to basics with 11 teams of 2 and going to five continents and 60K miles. That's the way it should be.

I cheered three times tonight:

First, I cheered when the geography puzzle Roadblock was revealed, because I knew then that there was no chance in hell that the Weavers would win.

Then, I cheered when the Linzes won.

Finally, I cheered the loudest at the TAR9 preview. We're getting our race back, y'all! Wooooo!!

I agree -- the two best moments in the episode were when it became apparent either the Linzes or Bransens would win and when they showed the preview of TAR9.

Congratulations to the Linz family!!
Bransen family, y'all were so close...
I would have been happy with either family winning.

Weevils. What goes around, comes around. Buh-bye.

Yay, a new race....come on February! I'm so excited!!

Now that we have our TAR back in February, I'll be interested to see the ratings for that as compared to the Bootleg version we had to endure for the last four months.
