Editorial Reviews

A new season, a new adventure, and a new globe-spanning race. The fifth season of Emmy-Award winning THE AMAZING RACE follows the longest race yet traveling over 72,000 miles, six continents, and twelve countries, including Uruguay, Kenya, and Tanzania. This time the race has not just one beauty queen, but two, with both a former Miss Teen USA and a former Miss Texas USA competing alongside past Big Brother contestant, Alison Irwin and the fan favorite team Mirna and Charla.

Descending into the depths of Osiris Shaft, 140 feet below sea level, contestants travel where no AMAZING RACE contestant has gone before, and a chocolate factory in San Carlos makes for the most delicious roadblock yet. The fun and excitement come to a dramatic stop for one team as an injury puts them out of the race permanently. It will take more than a passport to win this race around the world- find out who will cross the finish line first in this 3-disc DVD set.

I know that many of you hate them, but I'll argue all day long that Colin and Christie saved the Amazing Race in Season 5.

It literally took 10 races before a couples team (Megan and Shane) tied their combined record of 9 combined 1st/2nd placements; and Megan and Shane did it with pre-arranged flights and a whole lot of bunching to put them up one win (7/2). The fact that Mirna so clearly hated Colin (he's a criminal!) endeared him to at least half the audience, and the fact that both C&C were intent at every moment on beating every other team, made this race feel like an actual competition.

The animosity that built up between Colin and the other competitors after he and Christie came from the middle of the pack to going 1st or second in the next 8 legs? That saved the race. Because people either loved Colin because he got that this was a RACE!!!! (which I admit, I did; Colin is my favorite racer ever) or they hated him because he didn't much care what he did to other teams, as long as it put him ahead of them. And they got their friends to watch, by the dozen that summer; and they saved The Amazing Race.

And then...came the Ox.

Many people have melted down. Many people have had killer fatigue overwhelm them. Many people have said memorable things.

Nobody but Colin has claimed his animal was broken.

I love him, and I love this race. The biggest thanks EVER to Amazon for this season.

While I contend that TAR 1, the classic season is still the best, season five is the one that saved the franchise. While there are an assortment of forgettable racers, Colin and Christie remain the stars of the show whether you love them or hate them. Christie with her uber-manic intensity (with which she encourages a jeepney driver to run people down) and Colin with his cries of, "My ox is broken!" and "I'm packin' it!". I'm delighted that this season will soon be available on DVD because it's the main reason we are now enjoying season 20. Colin, for that, I thank you.

Truly the best season, so many memorable moments! Will order immediately when it is released. Must be the most exiciting finale next to the Season 2 foot race.

TAR5 remains one of the best seasons of The Amazing Race ever. In fact it's my personal favourite. A great cast, an amazing route and plenty of stand out moments. I've been waiting for this season to come out for years and to finally have it being released is a good day for TAR fans. Amazon Createspace is genius! Keep the TAR DVD's coming! ...and the Survivor ones as well!

This was the very first season I ever watched of "The Amazing Race" and I was hooked from the start!

It is a very exciting season, but the thing I like most is that the cast is made up of people who seem like REAL, ordinary people you would meet every day. In recent years I have stopped watching the show, because it seems like now they only cast people who look like professional models.

This was the very best season, with the most likable and relatable cast the show ever had. (The bowling Moms are still my favorite team EVER!)

I am a huge Amazing Race fan, along with my family, so you can imagine my joy when I discovered that earlier seasons had been released on Amazon. I bought 2-6 in one big shopping cart and haven't looked back. Season Five is absolutely stunning when taking into account a couple of different factors:

1) the all-star cast (Colin and Christie/Mirna and Charla to name two)
2) the variability in tasks and locations
3) the ensuing drama
4) the nail-biting final episodes

The entire season was fraught with drama and interesting tactics used by teams. One tactic I was generally surprised with was when a final three team decided to call ahead for a fast taxi at the airport and shipped home miscellaneous items so that it wouldn't hinder their performance.

Season Five features the love-'em-or-hate-'em team Colin and Christie. Always in ultra-competitive mode and known for their frequent outbursts of anger, the duo soared through the competition and never looked back. Some of the other reviews have mentioned classic moments featuring Colin, such as his moment with the ox, "I'm packin' it!", and a clash a with an unruly cab driver. Probably my favorite moment was when a team drove by another and shouted an obscenity from the window.

All in all, this season was very memorable and highlights the show's humble beginnings as it's fun to see the vast differences in gameplay from then to now. One qualm I have about the finale was the lack of a difficult task to complete in order to get to the finish line -- it wasn't terrible but it was lackluster to say the least.

I for one support more releases of this fantastic show on DVD and hope that Amazon sees the light of seasons 8-12.

I like the fact that I could order seasons 5 & 6 before their release date was announce and like a week before the release is coming up they e-mail you the fact that you will get it on this day. (By the way, I actually received it a day before the date scheduled so that made me even happier.) I'm not disappointed with the quality or even the chaptering of the episode- I also like the fact that you can play all episodes on the disc at once. I just wish they had some kind of extras. "Early Show" interviews with the winners at least. And one BIG question, Why are Charla and Mirna on the cover of the DVD. In seasons 1-4,6 & 7 all have the top 4 finishers on the cover. C & M finished 6th or 7th. Brandon & Nicole should have been on the cover. Yes the ladies were the breakout stars of the season (and finished 3rd in the all-star season) but the didn't deserve this cover. Still a great buy. Please, please, please release the 8th season (Family Edition) on DVD next.
