The Race stared down the Oscars with aboriginal art and kangaroo costumes
Sunday (February 27) night was Oscar night, but since "The Amazing Race" only began its "Unfinished Business" season last week, it wasn't like CBS was going to be able to air a clip show or even pre-empt new episodes for a week.
That meant that as "The Amazing Race" was beginning on the East Coast, I was putting together Oscars red carpet photo galleries. And as "The Amazing Race" was beginning on the West Coast, I was making more galleries and writing and assembling my Best & Worst
look at the show.
So by the time I settled in to actually watch the episode, it was already past 1 a.m. That's never optimal time for recapping of any sort, but at least by recording the show in Pacific Time, I got my first glimpse at "The Amazing Race" in HD. The show now finally looks, as its title would seem to demand, "amazing."
Otherwise? It's hard to know what to say about Sunday's episode, titled "I Never Looked So Foolish In My Whole Entire Life," except that it was basically a mulligan, the next best thing to airing a Non-Elimination Leg opposite the Oscars.
Some thoughts on Sunday's episode after the break... Possibly fewer thoughts than normal... I'm sleepy. Very sleepy...
