When 11 teams of two left New York City on a mad dash around the globe toward a $1 million prize in 2001, it was abundantly clear this Emmy winner was no ordinary reality fare. Confronted with challenges that take them from the sewers of Paris to the Sahara, the contestants still captivate (so do the locales). Extras: Include audio commentaries and unaired footage (billed as "sidetrips") that usually aren't worth the journey.
