yes, that is so true. But about "experiencing" the culture. Well, in this area, TAR does WAAAY better than TARA as many tasks in TARA (up to season 3) were "dominated" for sponsors' benefit(s), thus, not really wrapping up this culture thingy, hahaha

agree zee "culture experience" more interesting..

So far, the most cultural thing being featued at TARA are the freaky foods

Well, there were several tasks actually. In season 1, they had to do Piring Dance in Indonesia, lol

I like the Bakso Cart ...

Shall we recall the song here ....

yea, it was quite a fun task I think.

Well, I remember the title of the song which is "Abang Bakso" but I don't remember the lyrics. I think that song is popular in Jakarta (and nearby) only since I am not familiar with that song Very Happy

Yeah....so far, the only "cultural experience" that TARA includes in the tasks are the eating challenges! hehe

Nothing still beats the balut eggs! I want to try the stinky tofu though!

how about the bugs-fries in Bangkok?? hahaha

That explains why TAR has been winning the Emmys! lol! They have shown well-planned tasks that's both interesting and challenging.

and also the contestants, the host, the greeter, the prize, the leg planning and everything! and what i applaud the most is that the drama created / stirred are just so appropriate or even exciting.. Not over or under - dramatic (i created a new word here tongue ).. Bertram Van Munster rocks...

I agree, TARA season 1 is still the best season of TARA so far Smile

Well, true that TAR is still much better than TARA, but there are also several TAR seasons which are also, well, kinda disappointing

yep.. because it is hard to maintain the well-planned concept to still be well while they have to create something new to attract the viewers without boring them.. And a concept like this game,, is VERY VERY hard to realize.. they have to think about all the possibilities....

Bertram is the man! Cool

I agree with you Z and Chin-go.....keeping TAR very very interesting by having fresh tasks and/or visiting new places is indeed difficult to do, but for them to have 14 seasons and win several back-to-back Emmys (they only lost this year, right?) is an affirmation that they have maintained the quality of the show. Something which TARA, I hope would also accomplish. silent

yup, TAR is quite an accomplishment as it is able to maintain the number of viewers. That is kinda hard to do, especially for a show which has run for 17 seasons, hahaha

yeah, they must find new out of the box things to keep the viewers around. But being able to do that for 16 seasons, it has been a good job!! The challenge is gonnabe harder and harder Very Happy

In fairness to TARA, it has been nominated also in the INTERNATIONAL Emmy Awards. I just don't know if it won.

but let's face the fact guys that TAR production budget is way way different from TARA which depends on sponsors which they have to incorporate on the tasks to advertise it... it all boils down to the budget.... but of course if the production team really planned the task I'm sure they can still think of something interesting that is within the budget...

like

1) Car washing at Caltex Station in S'pore .... Just to touch down in S'pore to do this

2) Count money in Standar & Charterd .... again just to touch down in Hong Kong for this ....

I understand that TARA need sponsors, so they include those sponsors in the task so that they could promote them as well.

What annoys me is when the "sponsored task" is just plain dumb. Like when they went to ___ (was that Singapore?) just to wash a dirty car in a Caltex station....and then left again for another country. What the....?!

Mad
