    Sit through TNT’s “The Hero” and 72 Hours and REELZ’s “Race to the Scene” back-to-back, you realize how much the genre lives on the tired bone marrow of “Survivor” and "The Amazing Race."

    The game's the only thing in companion piece 72 Hours, which feels like an amped-up leg of The Amazing Race or a condensed version of Survivor if not its Eco-Challenge predecessor.

    Simply awful. It's like watching a boy scout troop on their first big overnight. Nothing to connect each episode, no reason to get attached toSimply awful. It's like watching a boy scout troop on their first big overnight. Nothing to connect each episode, no reason to get attached to anyone or anything, except the scenery. For that, I'll stick to the Travel Channel. Not thrilling, just ploddingly boring. Yuk! Full Review »

With 3 teams of 3 strangers problems automatically arise in how to strategically race. Luv the fact that its a new venue and new teams each week. Much better then TNT's The Hero. Full Review »
