My thoughts follow in the extended entry...

  • Jews from Brooklyn, you let the rest of us down! The lesson: detour tasks which require searching for something are a Bad Idea.
  • Gus, it's the amazing race, not the amazing stroll.
  • Jonathan (The loud smurf) may be the most annoying person ever on television.
  • No Roadblock?
  • Two hours of the first episode gave us a chance to figure out who the teams are. The only two teams who made absolutely no impression are Freddy/Kendra ("engaged models") and Kris/Jon ("dating long distance")
