I'm addicted!
17 April 2007 | by turdnipper12See all my reviews

This show is unbelievably stunning. The twists are huge and totally unexpected. I do think there are too many twists on top of another twist but keep in mind I didn't give it a 10. It doesn't contain of all the car crashes, stunts or CGI you'd expect from a big budget action movie but the thrills plentiful and keep you entertained every step of the way. If I were to turn this show on in the middle of a random episode I'd still be hooked --- it's THAT entertaining. There's not a minute within an episode that you will be bored.

Everybody is judging this show because in their weird opinion its stealing off Amazing Race and Rat Race. Well, the plots are similar but the style is completely different. We actually have a planned script in this show where what we want to happen does happen and we have a real story with some intense sequences. Its pretty cool because its like a football game where you're rooting for a certain person to cross the finish line first.

I think this is Fox's first good show made in a while. At least its not a cheesy, political thriller with cliché dialogue, a doctor show or another show stealing off CSI. At least we have a new genre that we have never seen on TV. Now I find this show so good that it should have been made a movie. However, the creators and writers have so many brilliant ideas, twists and thrills that there's no way that they can fit this into a motion picture. If you're kind of 50/50 not sure if you should watch this or not I suggest you start watching immediately so you don't miss out because this may have been made for you and yet you haven't watched it.
