That was the Paolo family Dad, the Aiello's are the ones from Mass who chanted "Yankees Suck" as they passed Yankee Stadium. (Easily the highlight of the first episode).

Why didn't they reveal the losing family's name, seemed a little unkind just referring to them as "the black family".
Would have liked to see them beat the rather cocky Linz siblings, too bad.

I wondered if it was a North America only thing, because in the opening credits it seemed like it only showed places here. I hope it does go worldwide, though, it is always really interesting seeing the different places they go and watching them interacting with locals, etc. I guess we'll have to wait and see.

I really liked the Black's too, wish they wouldn't have lost!

Yea, with them travelling from the get-go inside the states is a bit odd. Someone on another board I frequent noticed they are heading west.. so maybe it is a States/Canada thing.

MAybe down to mexico?

Never seen one before so I don't know.


Yeah, I'm bummed that the black's lost.
But at least they went out with class

I sorta would have liked to have seen the Paolo family go, because they... seem the most dysfucntional, and I feel bad for them. But then again, I guess they will provide "drama" in the upcoming shows.... but whatever.

Should be fun

I missed most of it because I had to work .

I saw about 20 minutes with the buggy part. The two little kids singing was kind of funny.

Ughhh.

This is my favorite show on television, but that opening was just boring. Having the kids in the show is bad enough, but if they don't leave North America, this will be the worst season yet.

so it's on Tuesday nights? That's it, right?

I don't want to miss a show, even if it isn't so great this year.

I wouldn't even know what to say as a summary...it's all just kind of bland to me. Nothing is really standing out.

I'm mad because the first week, my favorite family was eliminated...and now the family with my favorite player is gone. Not to mention the fact that they're still in the U.S. and don't appear to be leaving anytime soon. I miss the bickering couples fighting their way through airports to fly all over the globe.

I don't know if they're going to leave North America or not, if you watch the opening.. they don't really show anything that looks like overseas.

Ah.


yeah, I notice it's been very "patriotic" as of late.
I've seen quite a number of flags lately...

The first 40 minutes

They drive to the big shoe
Get their next clue and head to Washington, DC.
Much arguing about driving.
Pickup clue at reflecting pool.
A bunch of families mess up here as there are two pools and many picked the wrong one.
Get briefcase from limo.
Do the briefcase switch with the 'secret password'.
Drive to next clue where there is a civil war re-enactment.
They either have to fill 20 lanterns with oil and light them or remove 5 wounded soldiers from the battle field.
Pitstop.

They need to fly somewhere or go somewhere where no one speaks English

Amazing Race has jumped the shark. I'm done with this season. Maybe next year it will regain its excitement.
