Here we are again in Wayne's backyard. This time we had beer but we had hoped to shoot in a local bar. Our previous location, The Druid, shut down halfway through last season for renos. Then it reopened as the Urban Tavern and it had a space where we could shoot. However, it has closed down, temporarily it seems, for even more renos. Can't win, it seems. So the backyard. Gord seems to have Doc Brown hair going on which works for him. Comment if you wish.
Here we are in my backyard to discuss the first episode of Amazing Race Canada Season 5. As noted in the video, we love the show, we want it to be great, to succeed and continue, so we're disappointed when it's a bit lacklustre when compared to previous first episodes. Or when the network attempts to attract a specific demographic, which rarely works for TAR (Remember the Family Season. Or the Social Network one?). We hope it will get better and teams will stop trying too hard and just be themselves.
