Is anyone else watching this season? It is the family edition.

I am just waiting for the family of the daughters with their dad to hook up with the family of brothers that are there with their sister.

The Italian family fight more than anyone else ever on reality TV.

I was pulling for the sons-in-law but they were eliminated last week.

How can a family from New Orleans get eliminated on a leg that took place mostly in the New Orleans area? The park they couldn't find was a mile from the dad's job for crying out loud and they went a 1/2 hour out of the way.

The team with the 2 little kids are at a disadvantage when it comes to physical stuff. The party bike at Talladega was pedalled by just mom and dad. Sawing the log? Mom and Dad. Pulling the buggy? Mom and Dad. They are going to be physically exhausted by the end of the race.

The team of the widow and her kids annoy me to no end. I feel bad for them losing their dad and commend them for how well they have done. But to totally blow off every other team and then act like they are having a break down on the bus is a bit much.

OK...I am done venting.

After a slow start, the wife and I are enjoying the show now. Especially when it looks to be leaving the country next week.

I was happy that the "local" family got eliminated. The daughter was completely annoying, and I just didn't like it that they seemed happy about the widow and her daughters having to go to a race track. Don't get me wrong, I'm not a big fan of the Weaver's, but to seem delighted in someone else's misery just seemed wrong.

We're really pulling for the family with the 2 little kids, if for no other reason than they seem to be "normal"...relatively speaking.

Which brings me to the Italian family....good God....at what point should it be legal for the Mom to punk out her own kids? I know she's annoying, but man...

Sooner or later, the Bransen dad is going to cost his family their elimination. That'll be a shame, 'cause he's got some goooooood looking daughters. Anything that is half-way strenuous, and the dude looks like he's going to drop dead.

I'm pulling for the Bransens, Linz family, and Gaghan family. Wasn't big on the Linz family early on, but they really seem to be having fun w/ it, which won me over. I'd say they're probably the odds-on favorite to win it all, since they're young & strong enough to do any physical challenges. Nobody too old or too young that'll drag them down.

The Paolo mom annoys me to no end. Every show I root for them to get the boot. Them just barely beating out the 1st Louisiana family a few shows back *killed* me.

I would love to see the Gaghan parents on a regular edition of TAR. They kick loads of ass, and their kids are just flat-out dead weight.

The Paolos fight before the get i the car at the beginning of the day. It is my mom's family all over again. All full Italians. The oldest kid is a jerk to his mom and the dad does nothing.

The highlight of the show so far for me?

"THE BLACK FAMILY!"

I nearly choked when I first saw that...and every time afterwards.

I am juvenille.

Don't feel too bad... I'm black and I thought the shit was pretty funny too. And pardon me for saying so, but I'm glad they got eliminated because they were too 'perfect' (ie boring) for reality tv. Go Paolos!!

I'm pulling for the Linz family. They ARE having fun with the game and get a laugh out of me all the time.

-The Godlewski sisters will prove that age old fact: "Women can't stand each other", even when we are related.

-All I can say about the Weavers is that I admire that oldest daughter. It was just someting about how she was pushing that truck in the first episode that I liked. Since then, that middle daughters whining just... ugh! They've lost my favor.

-Yup, Daddy Bransen will send the family home soon. Two weeks tops.

-The Gaghan kids crack me up because they are such hams. They are a typical family and if they won the whole thing, I wouldn't be mad. Oh! And their parents are great too. I'm with Big Bad, they could be on the regular edition. easy.
