ABC posted 15 minutes of the premiere online today, and the show seems kind of like 'The Amazing Race' meets an Iron Man challenge during a desert season of 'Survivor.' Which is to say it looks interesting, though not entirely original.
There are plenty of reality TV tropes to be found -- there's the redneck team, the spicy latina team, the ex-NFL players who talk exclusively in football metaphors, the guy overcoming adversity, the excruciatingly long pauses before critical moments -- but all in all, it looks like a fun show for the summer. That said, if it were ever up against 'TAR,' Phil Keoghan would win every time.
At the very least, if the Middle Eastern scenery in the second 'Sex and the City' movie didn't make you want to visit Morocco already (or maybe Mariah Carey's newborn son, Moroccan), the breathtakingly gorgeous sweeping shots of the country in 'Expedition Impossible' will have you jumping online to check plane ticket prices as soon as the episode's over.
Tell us: Will you watch the 'Expedition Impossible' premiere next week?Did you also feel really awkward when that lady got really excited about beating her blind competitor?
