It's time for episode three of The Amazing (mothafuckin) Race III tonight! While there seems to be no obvious Gary/Dave or Frat Boys comic relief team this year, there is already an evil, I wish they'd die level team, the Guido-esque Wonder Twins, a team of twin brother models.

For those of you that don't really like Reality programming, this is probably the best reality show on TV. It's a really cool travelogue as well as a competition.

Other reality fare this week includes episode five of Survivor - Thailand, and the debut of The Ship, a Discovery Channel special where 40 people sail on a 18th Century ship living under the conditions of that time. Sounds interesting, much like 1900's House on PBS.

Gary/Dave were comic relief? Could've fooled me.

Ken/Gerard looked like the comedy team of this year in the first episode, but then got almost NO airtime last week.

But the previews show them getting tons of face time this week, which is awesome (I love that team).

There's really no "fiesty underdog team" this year, like Blaige were last year, but there are several teams that I just hate:

The old people because they're bitchy
Most of the young boy/girl teams because they're annoying.
The twins because they're God awful pretty boys (but good for them that they admitted that they're clueless.
Heather and Eve for saying that they're "feminist chicks with brains" and then proving the dumb blonde female stereotypes on every leg of the race.

This is still one of the best shows on television.

In other notes:

-Gary and Dave were comic relief only to themselves.
-The race seems pretty leisurely this year. Cauzumel, Cancun, London. What is this, a site seeing tour? (Not to mention some of the easy-ass challenges, I hope they get worse).
-I'm still watching Survivor. Less interesting than last season, still more interesting than Africa.

Anyway, I hope they do another Race. I heared that CBS was fairly pleased with the early returns on this one, which is great.

*spoilers for the west coast people. Go away*


Damn, I wasn't really a huge fan of Dennis/Andrew, but there's a LOT more teams I'd rather see go before them. Teri/Ian, Heave, Zach/Flo, and AA should all leave the race. Right now.

AA and FloZa are the heels. They can't leave.

Sorry to see Dennis/Andrew leave, would much rather it had been TerIan. This is the first time even a Fast Forward hasn't saved someone.

A fun episode, all things aside. The "Scottish Games" was a fun little event, too bad it had to be ruined by TerIan's bickering.

Flo bitches more than enough to make a good Tara, but I just don't think that Zach has enough Wil in him to make them a good villian team.

Michael and Flo though? They would be kick ass villians.

I also wish they would have SHOWN us the airport mixups that got Dennis/Andrew 20+ hours behind everyone else.

"This is the first time even a Fast Forward hasn't saved someone."

Guidos. The Guidos fucked around enough that they would have been eliminated if Momily hadn't quit their task.

Which means, of course that having the FF "saved" them.

Of course with all the bunching they do on every leg, the FF hasn't had much impact this or last season as a method of getting way out in front. It's more of a stay of execution for the teams at the tail.
