The Amazing Race is perhaps my most favorite thing in the world.  What else could fulfill my fantasy of touring so many places around the world, in a span of only an hour each week, without me having to lift a finger?  Perhaps that’s exaggerating, but there’s the drama, and there’s the thrill of being in a race, which couldn’t be more perfect.  Season 14 is on our way, and BuddyTV is still here to take note of everything that happened, and perhaps throw a few questions in the air along the way.  We’ll be updating this page with everything from this season—the interviews, the per-episode live thoughts, our opinion bits and everything else that would make the watching—and the armchair racing—an easier thing.  Well, if anything could make a race so much better, it’s someone explaining everything by your side.  By all means, that should be us.
