This surprises me, because I never thought I would like that show. Over the years, people have told me that I should watch it but the only episodes I ever caught glimpses of never sparked my interest. It seemed like it was just a bunch of people arguing with each other.
Until I had a bunch of research papers looming - then TAR was somehow riveting. I am really enjoying it, even though so many of the scenes remind me too much of stuff I've lived in real life. I hate hate hate that feeling of getting off a train after a night of crappy sleep and being hungry and you have to go to the bathroom but you don't have time because you have to get somewhere before a certain time but you have no idea where to go or where to even begin to find your way. It's stressful enough when you don't have a million dollars on the line.
Nobody give any spoilers for this season, please. I understand that it's already ended (?) and we'll see if I can get through the rest of the episodes without finding out who wins. As far as avoidance behaviors go, The Amazing Race is pretty dang enjoyable.
