    If you want to hear our reactions to all the controversies this episode created when it released last week on Nebula, including but not limited to...
    - What counts as eating at McDonald's
    - What counts as a handstand
    - What counts as a drop goal
    - What counts as rolling a die

      Someone could’ve bought a die with more faces (like a d20) and did it that way, it’s not against the rules!

      ROFl, They do a half of a second handstand, and count it as 2 seconds in the total tally... Thats a very big margin they took for themselves there!

    • VoraciousGhost
      VoraciousGhost 2 months ago +178

      While the handstand attempts were questionable, I think the card was actually just too hard and underestimated. Doing 60 seconds worth of a "real" handstand is incredibly difficult, and I don't think any of the players could really do it.

    I love how Ben and Adam taking the east route was an obvious strategic blunder but they don't really care because they're just using it as an excuse to sightsee

    • Laika Drake
      Laika Drake 2 months ago +139

      Yeah, especially since there really isn't that big of a downside from just following the leader. Even the worst roadblocks aren't really as bad as having to complete whole challenges to stay ahead.

      I feel like this is the real purpose for this game, and winning doesn't seem like as important as previous seasons in the US, as it feels the real winners are those who can enjoy the trip the most.

      Also just the way it is cut! I noticed this in previous seasons too, many times the cutting plays a huge role in how funny the episodes are.

    The Clock Store Window save has to be the most iconic save in JetLag history. I would have immediately started the veto clock as soon as I saw the closed sign.

    • Sujal Shah
      Sujal Shah 2 months ago +33

      It's just the time gap in episodes that confuses a bit. The thought of looking for clocks might have occurred the next second they saw the 'Closed' sign, and they wouldn't have wasted even a minute thinking over it.

    It's funny that Ben and Adam tried to keep very quiet in the caves so as not to scare the worms, where in fact they should have been as loud as possible. The worms react to vibrations and will glow brighter in response to loud and sharp sounds 😅

    I like how they try to find a clock with the right time and pick one that was 15 Minutes out, even though there was a giant one with the correct time behind the till, the entire time (visible at 1.36 it was the white one)

      they talked about this on the podcast. that clock was in the “for sale” section and was therefore not “on display in the museum” like the card states. ben/adam we’re planning on using that clock if they couldn’t find another one through the windows (after discussing rules with sam)

      What's a zipper merge? And why Sam and Toby didn't do the same thing?

    • Skorp
      Skorp 2 months ago +3

      @Alan Young If two lanes merge into one, drivers on the lane that ends are requested to drive up to the end and only then, not earlier merge with the other lane. This ensures maximal throughput as the most space (two lanes) is used most of the time. If merging happens earlier, the lane that gets merged in gets crowded (too early). It is called a zipper merge, because while merging the cars of the two lanes alternate. First a car from lane A drives and B waits, then B drives and a car on lane A waits. This in addition to maximum throughput ensures fairness. It's standard in Germany and although most drivers don't give a damn about anything it works extremely well. But due to the confusion and the amount of likes I assume, it's actually a peculiarity?

    As a rugby player I can't help but laugh at how much time Sam lost because he kept trying to kick a conversion instead of doing a drop ball😂😂😂

    As a Kiwi, watching Sam and Toby repeatedly fail to do a drop kick was frustrating. I remember kicking rugby balls over the posts before I turned 10, and watching these two miss so many times was hilarious.

    I'm glad to see this season see more use of the power-ups. By all means, previous seasons where the powerups went at least mostly unused were still really engaging and full of clever strategies. However, the variety and change of pace is nice to see here.

    Sam: "Well, when you compare the expected credits gained from the tasks up against the potential time saved by taking the shorter route - given the other team also acts optimally, of course, and considering the tactical role played by the upcoming bottleneck - "

    For people who keep arguing about the technicality of the McDonald rule - THEY CREATED THE GAME and whole point is to slow the team down by making them take a detour.
    The card state "For the next three Mcdonald's that are visible from the roadway, you must stop there and each team member must eat something" it's not that deep, stop at mcdonald and eat something. It never state you need to stay there, or you even have to buy mcdonald. They stopped at the drive-thru and they ate something - challenge completed

      It’s a bit like Top Gear, it’s not about what they’re doing it’s who is involved. Top Gear still existed after May, Hammond & Clarkson left but a lot of fans switched to The Grand Tour. 3 friends and a guest, arsing about across the world is endlessly enjoyable because they get on so well. Plus it helps that they come up with very interesting and exciting challenges and funny ways to mess up each other’s day

    Good job by Ben and Adam of singing the train song in the second one! I would have vetoed it after looking at those lyrics.

      It might be possible if they get Auckland, but don't think so. They have way less challenge points at their disposal, so Sam and Toby can probably toss curses at them in the end. And the curses seem to slow you down a a lot, to the point where whoever runs out first loses. Similar to the card swap last time.

    First day (of filming) and Ben & Adam are both badly sunburned 😂
    Also, yet again some creative interpretations of what’s in the spirit of the game - this time by both teams at least.
    I absolutely love this, and despite being a Nebula subscriber I’m watching it as it’s released on Clip-Share with my partner. Maybe in the future there’ll be compatibility for a Nebula app on PS4 or smart tv’s 🤞

    I love how at the Clock Museum, neither Ben nor Adam realize that there is a clock staring straight at them that says 6:10 when its almost certainly 15 minutes within that time. But they got one anyway so it's all good I suppose.

    I once got to go an underground river tour at the Waipu caves and at once point we came into this massive cavern. The cavern's ceiling was COVERED in glow worms. It was one of the most amazing things I have ever seen. If you ever get a chance to go to New Zealand, please, do yourself a favor and go to Waipu.

    And I thought he was good at doing handstands after his confident reaction to the roadblock
