The 7th Season - Can they survive the race? (1/05/2006)
Video:   7/10
Audio:   7/10
Extras:   4/10

Buy from (US)
Summary of " The 7th Season - Can they survive the race?":
This was my favorite season of The Amazing Race (much better than the "Family Edition"). Rob and Amber added a great dynamic to the show; I'd laugh when all the other teams were talking about them, especially Lynn and Alex.

I love the addition of the "Mat Chats"; it's great to hear more of the chit-chat that goes on when a leg is finished. I'd like for them to go one step further and show us what happens after the leg is done. How do they relax, where do they go, who do they talk to? I'd also love to see a PDF of the rules included on the DVD. Haven't you wondered what they can and can't do? I know I have! While I'm making this list of suggestions for future releases, how about interviews (or commentary) from the camera people on the show? I bet they have some great stories to tell.

This is a good set, and fans of the show will want to pick it up for the commentary tracks and unseen footage. (read entire review)

The 1st Season - Yes, this race was amazing! (9/25/2005)
Video:   7/10
Audio:   7/10
Extras:   5/10

Buy from (US)
Summary of " The 1st Season - Yes, this race was amazing!":
I had a BLAST watching this all day yesterday (Saturday). I was so excited to see the very first race, and I loved being able to watch the entire season in an afternoon/evening. I'd love to comment on everything that happened, but I don't want to spoil the season for someone who hasn't seen it. The ending of the race is incredibly moving; it's the best ending to the show I've seen.

I feel the need to comment on the "Side Trips." I think it's a great idea to include the additional footage, but the way it was done could have been better. Footage has to be made available outside the episode. I found the experience of being sucked out of the episode to watching some extra footage very jarring, and I stopped pressing the button part way through the first episode. I began taking notes of the time, then returning to the episode and jumping to the specific location so I could watch the branching material. It's okay to have the material integrated into the episode, but please make it available elsewhere as well. There's some excellent material in there!

I've often wondered about the work that goes into this show, so I really enjoyed the two longer featurettes, and the commentary tracks were great! There's always one thing missing from these reality shows; interviews with the cameramen. I'd love to hear some of their stories, or thoughts on filming the shows.

I loved watching the first season of my favorite reality show. It's priced well, just $27.29 from Amazon, and is worth buying if you're a fan of the show.

Don't forget to catch the new season of The Amazing Race on Tuesday, September 27 (the same day this set is released). (read entire review)
