I'm with Teppan. I have never watched more than 5 minutes of the past seasons, but I took a look tonight and enjoyed it. Of course I already have my favorites (the virgins, the clowns, and the father-son duo), so I can't wait to watch next week.
The Hurricane main eventing a Raw show? See, the WWE is listening to the 'Net. Well, they're listening to me anyways. Look for the next push to go to Molly.
Good show, good enough that I didn't mind missing Smackdown for it. Of course, given Smackdown's general suckiness lately, not much of a sacrifice. And by jumping straight to Milan, it looks like they're going to avoid a lot of Europe this time around, since the Race usually runs in a west-east direction to cut down on jetlag problems, and they're already pretty far east in Europe.
Still sorting out all the teams, but it looks like the virgins and the clowns are my early favorites. The NFL wives look like they can't handle it and will flame out early (going for the Fast Forward in the first leg, when they're already in the middle of the pack? Bad decision). Chris and Amanda and Russell and Cindy will be the Tara/Wil or Flo/Zach of this season: nonstop bitchfests. And Team ATC are worth rooting for even though they're obviously doomed.
"next to of course god america i love you land of the pilgrims' and so forth oh say can you see by the dawn's early my country tis of centuries come and go and are no more what of it we should worry in every language even deafanddumb thy sons acclaim your glorious name by gorry by jingo by gee by gosh by gum why talk of beauty what could be more beaut- iful than these heroic happy dead who rushed like lions to the roaring slaughter they did not stop to think they died instead then shall the voice of liberty be mute?"

Nothing was funnier than the bus driver actually driving off and leaving The Dirty Birds stranded.
I'm rooting for Team Virgins too.

They were on the show? Was it in the first 10 minutes because I missed that part due to getting home late. Damn. Pretty good season opener last night. I'm also rooting for the clowns and father/son duo. Can't wait to see the model team drop out.
I've been an avid watcher the past 3 shows and this season seems to be headed the same way as them. Great show, one needs skill, courtesy, balls, knowledge, the gift of gab and a little bit of luck to succeed in this game. I don't think any reality show comes close to this one in term of pure gamesmanship.
As for Season 4, personally I'm pulling for the clowns to win, the air traffic controllers (Steve and Dave)to do well (but with the bum knee I don't know how much they can manage to go on), and the miami models to be in a couple of shows just to see them bickering with the others. My prediction for show winners..hmm....either Kelly and Jon or Amanda and Chris to take it all. I wanna also cheer for the NFL wives but they pull the fast foward waaaaay to early, especially knowing they were 2 hours ahead of the last pack. Stratigically it made no sense at all.
So between this and the new season of Imsomniac I'm set for thursday nights for the summer since I don't get UPN.
My insights on "Flash Gordon": * If Flash (Sam Jones) was acted any more stiffly, a mannequin could have taken over the role. Prince Barin (Timothy Dalton) runs him a close second in the stiffness category, though. * Dale (Melody Anderson)
