The teams adventure though everything from Viking Villages to glacial lagoons, persevering through the elements and cultural shock towards the ultimate cash prize. Only in a show as unpredictable as THE AMAZING RACE could a Chicago deep dish pizza be the difference between first and last, and when it comes down to the finish line, it is one of the closest races in the history of the game.

The thing I love most about the show are the locations. It is the next best thing to traveling the world myself. Not only do I get to see multiple and varied locales, including many that I will likely never get to travel to myself, but the show producers also do a great job of finding the most unique adventures to complete in each area. I've learned more about world geography and different cultures than I ever learned in any classroom.
It's also interesting to watch the interpersonal dynamics between teammates and between teams. I'd be lying if I didn't admit to finding the conflicts entertaining . . . and the stress of travel and competition does bring it out. But I always root for the teams that are nicest to each other.
And it's rewarding to see how the intensity of the race truly brings teammates closer together by forcing them to work together and rely on one another.
This is one of my favorite seasons of Amazing Race, and I was stoked when I found out it was getting a DVD release. Overall this may be one of the most fun casts that the show has ever had (even if it does have terrible Jonathan). It also features some of my favorite challenges and one of the most fun race routes.
The set itself is a little disappointing for what it's worth. I'm glad that it comes in a regular-sized case to save shelf-space, but I'm a little disappointed that quality was sacrificed for having the season spread over a smaller number of discs. It's 13 episodes, 11 of which are 42 minutes and first and last episodes being 80 minutes each, on a mere three discs. Personally I would have been happier with four discs, with the extra space used to increase quality. The Survivor seasons are spread over five discs and have higher quality video/audio. I can't complain too much though, since just two years ago the possibility of this season getting any sort of home media release was practically nonexistent, so I'm thankful that it actually even got released.
The chances of this season ever getting a mass-retail release are practically zero, so if you're a fan of the season, this is your best bet. The prices on these sets fluctuate all the time, so wait for a price on this that catches your eye and jump at the chance. If you are an Amazing Race fan and you missed this season, I would highly recommend it. If you love the season like me, this is a must buy.
I really disliked Jonathan. He was abusive- emotional, verbally, and physical against Victoria. He's the only low point in the season.
If you have someone in your life that loved The Amazing Race, then this is a must have for them.

Of the first six seasons this is the first one I found painful to watch all the way. The reason was the abusive men and in particular Jonathan. Read morePublished 17 months ago by R. Stone

Picture not good and missing sound at certain times. I felt like I was watching a poor bootleg. Not quite sure how CBS puts something out with this poor quality.Published on January 4, 2013 by Eric P.
