drama, lousy dancing, teams fighting, teams being sneaky and
backbiting, coal shovelling, not reading of clues and getting lost. It
had the makings of a great episode, especially since we had no idea who would
come in last.
But then it happened. Some time before the last commercial break, just after the Timmies finished their task with the coal and there it popped on my TV screen: "This Non-elimination leg brought to you by the Blackberry Q thingy.| I mean, what the fuck was that? I'm not sorry for my bad language because I'm a crime writer and ex-punk rocker. And I am really pissed that someone idiot ran an ad during the show, near the last few
minutes, when we were all on the edges of our seats wondering whether the Docs
would do their dinosaur in time, if the Sisters would find their way or would
the Timmies push by them, an ad that tells me and all the almost 3 million
Canadians that this is a non-elimination leg?
Not sure who's to blame, the producers, Insight Productions, CTV, some master control switcher who pushed a wrong button, but it ruined what could have been a
classic Amazing Race Canada episode. I'm so annoyed that I'm not going to
post a recap tonight; I'll do that later in the week.
Don't make that mistake again folks.
