China Rush/Amazing Race
Unless I missed a recent announcement for our local TV celebrity, this show starts very soon.

You didn't miss an announcement; I guess I just don't feel comfortable about self-promotion, especially when I've not seen any of the show myself yet!
For the premiere tonight, and the rest of the series, I will be doing my best not to take anything too seriously and to just enjoy the show for what it is. If you watch it, I hope you find it entertaining at least! :-)

is that link above:
...the best place to watch it online?
..I presume you can watch it any time after 8pm right?
Also, it had a countdown to 8pm ...and now it is counting down another 24 hours...I guess that's an error.
Also it was counting down to 8pm...but it was counting down to 8pm here, and Shanghai is 2 hours behind. Any explanation?

I never managed to watch the first episode on Sunday night live as I couldn't find a website that I could do it on. Does anyone know where you can catch the video of that first episode now?
I'm stoked. This is brilliant. All subtitled in zhongwen too and the very first task is so relevant to the recent "wrong way on the subway" lesson:
..and predictably at 8m30s a team does go the wrong way.
Love the mix of teams too...including Masai warriors, and of course our very own suxiaoya. Jiayou !!
zaogao. that link doesn't seem to be working anymore. Luckily I saw all of the first episode but I wanted to still be able to view it again and also I don't seem to be able to access anything that will give me the second episode. Is this a problem with the site, or are they blocking it to outsiders now? Can't watch it live either now. The China Rush site still hasn't uploaded any full episodes ..it still says "coming soon". Also the ICS channel link to watching it live still doesn't work. Any tips anyone? I thought I had this sorted and nothings working anymore.
hey dan, don't worry about that above message. I think I've just worked out why I can't watch it live anywhere or get that link to work. It seems that public entertainment is being suspended for a day of mourning for victims of landslide in Gansu.
Episode 2 was indeed postponed for the reason bababardwan gave. They plan to do a double whammy this coming weekend, apparently, with an episode on both Saturday and Sunday evenings...
yeah, it looks like everything is back up and running today...except that link seems to take you to the last 7 days only [which means just follow that same link next time to watch it live or within 7 days..I hope] so episode 1 seems to be no longer available there. Anyone have a link to where episode 1 can still be seen?
Haha, good to know you enjoyed it!
I was actually a bit disappointed. There was just too much going on to follow it all fully. Not that this is a big problem for me: Molly and I spent the first half of that episode running around like headless chickens; we were soooo hyped-up and had no idea what we were doing. Thankfully, this didn't get too much attention in the final edit ;-)
Anyway, I've been promised by the main Editor that the show gets a lot more exciting and engaging as the weeks goes on, with fewer teams left in the race...
too much going on to follow it all fully
..yeah, but TAR is always like that, particularly at the start when there are a lot of teams and you're not so familiar with who's who and the relationship in the team [so you're trying to read that as well].
running around like headless chickens
..hehe, yeah, it's always like that too. I think it's filmed/edited the way it is so as a viewer you're sharing the headless chook feeling. We're right there with you Sarah, hehe ;)
..Yeah, I'm sure it will get better and better. Cheers
