THE SLOW FORWARD: Well, that hasn't happened since the first season of The Race of Amazement, as far as I can recall.** Still, once the structure of the episode was clear, so was the outcome. Not a great episode, but not a bad one . . . I'm just not feeling terribly invested in the remaining teams, pro- or con. You?
** Okay, it has happened before. Dennis and Andrew in season three (i.e., Team I'm Trying To Come To Grips With My Gay Son) used the Fast Forward yet still were eliminated, but in that case, the length of the FF task wasn't the issue.
