I have to say I'm enjoying the TAR Asia action more than TAR Original Recipe, if only because (almost) every single team is alpha to the point that I know that if I were there in that race with them, I'd be screwed something fierce. Aggressive racers =/= drama queens, thank you.

I'm really surprised that the stress level was so high in this ep, because it's only the second leg of the race.

Just posting some thoughts, of the top of my head.

Spoilers!Collapse )

I just realised that TAR Asia doesn't have quotes for its episode titles, so I shall come up with my own. :D I was busy watching with family to pay proper attention last night, so this is me paraphrasing to the best of my recollection, but anyway, let's talk about the ep!

What do you think?
The official recap is already up at AXN's site

So I was right, they launched from Singapore...Collapse )

And I found the Racers Revealed ep on Youtube. Awesome! Much thanks to the kind person hosting it. :D I wonder if there's ever any plans to release DVDs of the show....

Season 1 of The Amazing Race Asia was like watching the first season of The Amazing Race... It was fresh, it was exciting, and the majority of the racers were competent, intelligent and above all interesting people to watch (i.e. I didn't want to reach into the tv and slap them.... most of them, anyway).

If Season 2 of TAR:Asia ends up being like Season 2 of TAR I will be a sad panda, but for now I'll reminisce by recapping what is probably my favourite episode of Season 1.

Kid On a Swing.Collapse )

(the bulk of this post was previously posted in my personal LJ)

So last week was the pre-show, showcasing this season's racers. (This here be the official page on the teams) Reputedly, it's the first of its kind in TAR history, and I've not yet decided if this a good or a bad thing. Still, having an entire hour dedicated to introducing the racers does give more depth to them beyond the usual soundbites that would be allotted to them once the Race begins.

Overall: Less full-on Westerners than last year's but otoh a majority of the Asian racers are mixed to begin with, or are married to Westerners. It's basically Expat Hour lah, even if it's honorary. :P Or am I the only who noticed this??

A further breakdown of the teamsCollapse )
I can't wait! OTOH, apparently there will be 'more drama' this year, which doesn't exactly fill me with confidence. And heh, they were showing all these audition videos of ppl who didn't make the cut. Very funny, very inventive, but man, how embarrassing. ^^;

Hi, and welcome to tar_asia, where we're all about The Amazing Race Asia. I'm serabut, your friendly community co-mod, and I'm pretty excited that the second season is starting soon!

Anyway, postings are members-only and unmoderated, so just mind the guidelines, and we'll be fine.

I'm not much of an icon-maker, but I hope there are those out there who are interested in making some for the show. I hope to do regular recaps, but we'll see. I'll welcome anyone who's interested in doing the same for Season 1. Warning: I'm pretty irreverent, so please don't be too quick in taking offence. Ta! And don't forget to spread the word, I know there're more fans of TAR-A out here in LJ!
