Stray Thoughts

  • I can’t see them sticking with these teams for very long. Team UK is just clearly outclassed by the US. The last two full season two-team challenges — Gauntlet III and The Ruins — also were absolute blowouts with the veteran-heavy teams dominating. This season will go the same way unless they change it up.
  • Both the mission and elimination were merely fine for me. There wasn’t a ton of teamwork necessary in Cryptic Crossbow other than finding the words, and it was such a blowout that the result was never in doubt. I liked the idea of the Firestarter elimination, but it was kind of boring to just watch Georgia and Big T push a dumpster around.
  • I’m mixed on how I feel about the tribunal right now. Ideally, I would like to see the tribunal formed based on performance. But it’s tough to design team missions where individuals’ performances can be quantified, and I also kind of like seeing the team dynamics of who gets into the tribunal. But I hope it doesn’t become a Tony/Zach Vendettas situation where the same people just keep going in (at least nobody can be in the tribunal two times in a row this season).
  • Overall this was just an okay episode for me. It didn’t help that I’m not a Kam fan and this episode was centered around her. I enjoyed seeing more of the team dynamics from both sides, but a blowout of a mission, two quits, and a Kam-themed episode dragged it down for me.
  • Episode Grade: C+
