It's off to Poland where a Double U-Turn awaits
I'm a little distracted by Game 4 of the World Series, so I may need to make this recap really simple.
Sunday (October 27) night's episode of "The Amazing Race" was a clean and solid hour of TV, without delivering anything truly spectacular. The Detour options each had advantages and disadvantages. The Roadblock offered the potential to be exhausting, even if it was built entirely on luck. The Double U-Turn came into play the way the producers wanted it to (even if I remain frustrated by the logistics of its implementation) and helped add drama to the episode. And a team I mostly like went home, which was disappointing, but at least they were gracious about it and they have nobody in particular to blame other than themselves.
So yeah. A decent "Amazing Race" episode is a decent thing to have, even if it isn't nearly as decent as if the Red Sox could figure out where they left the best offense in the American League.
