After disappointing me for the better part of the past two months, I have no choice but to sever all ties for the remainder of this season of The Amazing Race. It brings me great pain to cut off, even if only temporarily, a bond that has remained steadfast, strong, and a consistent source of euphoria for going on 2+ years. The fond memories will remain, but for now I must say, "I'm sorry to tell you, but you've been eliminated from my life."
There was a strong outcry against the switch to "Family Edition," but I defended you against the naysayers. In return, I only asked that you provide me with the quality entertainment I have come to expect, as experienced in seasons 4 - 7. Not only was I denied that pleasure, but you also broke my heart by eliminating the hottest racer far too early in the season. My tears could fill an ocean...
I should have known it was coming. Teams did not leave the country before the fifth episode, and they have already returned, just two episodes later. Words cannot express how utterly boring an "Amazing Race" is that takes place primarily within the continental U.S. This is not season 1 or 2 of Road Rules! Luckily, I can watch reruns of seaons I've seen and those I have not on the Game Show Network.
Anxiously awaiting Season 9,
