Disappointment."The Amazing Race" used to be my favorite reality show and one of my favorite TV shows.
Until last night.
It's not the Family Edition that has soured me on the show. It's a combination of two things.
The first is that they haven't left the U.S. yet and I've heard rumors that they never leave North America. WTF? I noticed that Phil didn't say his usual "racearoundtheworld" last night. He said "a race for million dollars".
My main problem with this season is the casting. These families suck. Some lowlights:
* If the family of sisters does not stop shrieking, I will watch this show on mute. I am not kidding. They are worse than a group of 7th grade girls.
* If the New Jersey family (with 2 teenage sons) does not get Philiminated soon, I may stop watching the show. The sons are so disrespectful that my jaw dropped more times that I can count. They were telling their parents to 'shut up' and that they are stupid.
* If the widow and kids do not stop praying to Jesus to help them on the Race, I will go postal. This mother repeatedly professes how important her faith is and then spent two hours last night asking for Jesus to help them find a highway and not get Philiminated. WTF. As one of my favorite web sites says: Jesus can't help you. He's in the tub.
I don't know what happened during casting and creation of this season, but the producers have gone horribly wrong.
Thank goodness "Lost" lived up to my expectations last week. Well, except for the fact that Sayid didn't take off his shirt. :)
No knitting pics yet. Frankly, I'm too lazy to find the camera.
