The Treasure Room / Re: Legends of the Hidden Temple BuzzFeed Quiz
« Last post by The Dark Enforcer on November 18, 2021, 07:56:31 PM »
I took the quiz, and don't want to reveal my result.

This quiz needs to be re-done so that there are "neutral" answers to some of the questions.

I don't care about what geographical region my legend comes from. All I care about is that I'd be on the show.

Also, how the fuck am I supposed to know the middle initial of someone I've never met?

Sorry Alec, but I grade this quiz an F.

Here's the second installment to my "what if" scenarios on the more deserving temple teams going to the temple.

1. Annie goes first and will start in the Room of the Three Gargoyles, where she encounters the Temple Guard and gives him her pendant.
2. She opens up the Wall climb, jumps down and heads for the Observatory.
3. Once she had successfully climbed up into the Observatory, Annie runs to the sundial, spins it and heads down into the Heart Room where the second Temple Guard takes her out.
4. Brad quickly retraces Annie's steps and enters the Treasure Room from the Heart Room.
5. He runs through the Treasure Room and opens Shrine of the Silver Monkey.
6. Brad easily figured out the simple three-piece puzzle and went up into the Pirate's Cove.
7. In the Pirate's Cove, he spins the wheel and climbs down into the Dungeon.
8. On the way down into the Dungeon, Brad sees the other half of his pendant and promptly grabs it.
9. With both halves of his pendant, Brad busts through the Stone Wall and into the Tomb of the Ancient Kings, where he finds the key in the coffin right away to open up the Swamp.
10. As he tries to make it through the Swamp, Brad was scared for a moment by the third Temple Guard and gave him both halves of his pendant.
11. He then opens up the Room of Harmonic Convergence, enters the room and promptly grabs the small pot-bellied pig statue as he sees it on the ladder.
12. With Amelia Earhart's lucky pot-bellied pig in hand, Brad makes his way back through the Wall Climb, into the Cave of Sighs and back out to Kirk and Annie!

🚨Spoiler Alert! You know the drill. Read at you own risk🚨
















Yoooooo, they got played dirty in that Temple Run. 8 fucking rooms they had to go through. While they SOMEHOW made it to the artifact in time, they runner didn’t realize it and attempted the objective to the Steamy Hollows. To their defense, the artifact was on a shelf that was partially covered by leaves. The best way to describe this run was if “The Discarded Seal of Ivan the Terrible” and “The Golden Pepperoni of Catharine de' Medici“ had a love child.

Still, they made it through 8 rooms (Crystal Cenote, Rage Room, Beloved, Spider’s Lair, Pit, Queen’s Armory, Lost Treasure, Shrine) before making it to the Steamy Hollows where the treasure was.

So this episode I did enjoy. If I’m not mistaken this is the first time I think contestants from the original series had known each other even though they were in different seasons. It just felt destined that Nick & Josh were to go to the Temple.


The Kirk Fogg appearance was pretty special though even though it did cost a couple seconds that they might’ve needed. I do think Nick going for a direct path was more costly though. It never worked in the original series so did you really think it would work in the reboot? I will say the two were more excited about seeing Kirk for that short time than winning the $10k judging by the reactions in the interview. Also is it me or was Josh flirting too much with Cristella?


So I believe we are halfway through the season. I have mixed reception so far


What I like:
Mostly keeping the original format of the show
Olmec being voiced by Dee Bradley Baker still.
Moat and Steps of Knowledge round still pretty much the same
Temple design (this is my favorite part especially with a few homages including the Shrine of the Silver Monkey, Dark Forest, and the Pit of Despair. Also the gong in that mist room is the same from the old Moat (you can see it in the Temple Games as well)


What I do not like
The goddamn interviews, this is not a reality show.
4 teams instead of 6
The entire Temple Games and it’s format. Makes third guard useless.
The difficulty of the Temple (probably why a full minute was added). So far we’ve had one win, one artifact grab, and three fails.


Hopefully I can be impressed with the other five episodes.

So, I finally watched the entire Pearl Necklace of Rama episode. This is first episode of the Reboot that I've watched all the way through. My thoughts on the Reboot and every round of the episode are below. Overall, this was a pretty enjoyable episode and has motivated me to watch the previous episodes. I do have some complaints about the new format of the show which I will list below:

- Moat: Interesting decision to reduce the number of teams from 6 to 4 in the moat round. Not that it matters, since 2 teams ultimately make it to the temple games anyways. It does kind of suck not all 6 teams are present at once. I like how the moat in the Reboot involves a more extensive type of challenge instead of simply having two players trying to make it across without falling in. I always found the moat round in the original show to be uninteresting. I also like how teams receive an introduction, whereas in the OG it was just during the temple games. Although the constant cutting away to get the contestants' commentary might get annoying after watching the show for a while.

The moat round in this episode was pretty entertaining. The Orange Iguanas and Blue Barracudas were neck-and-neck. The Silver Snakes struggled pretty bad with trying to stay afloat. I liked the introduction for Nick and Josh and the flashback to the original show. Although they could've done better with the flashback instead of post a couple of Nick GAS screenshots.  :afro: Josh looks like the same in the face from his original episode, but I would've never guessed that was Nick. I guess not wearing his glasses makes him look like a different person. I wonder if they known each other for a long time? Maybe Nick was the one that got Josh interested in competing on the OG show?

- SOK: Not much has changed about this round. It looks like they are sticking with a cartoony artstyle for the stories. I do like how they kept the original chime for the SOK. Since this show is geared towards an older audience, they can get away with more violence in the legends. Orange Iguanas and Blue Barracudas pretty much dominated this round. LOL @ Nick frantically trying to step on the step markings in order to chime in.  :lol:

- Temple Games: I'm not a fan of this format of temple games. The teams are pretty much guaranteed to go to the temple with 2 Pendants. In the original show, the more Pendants that you earned meant the more likely you will be safe for all 3 guards. With this new format, the third temple guard is essentially worthless.

- Temple Run: I will admit that I had some major doubts about the temple, but the temple looks great so far. I like the objectives for all the new rooms featured in this episode. It will take some time to get use to them though. I also like how they brought back some old rooms like the Pit of Despair, Dark Forest, and of course the iconic Shrine. I also like the "just assemble the damn monkey" line by Olmec during the temple rundown. It made me chuckle.  :lol: The temple runner's contestant POV angle is a nice addition too. I do wish they kept the temple run theme from the original show.

As for the temple run in this episode, I agree with PP319 that Kirk was to blame for Josh and Nick losing. Was there a reason to interrupt the temple run for the Kirk cameo? They could've at least halted the clock while Nick and Josh were talking to Kirk. What if Nick and Josh never made it to the temple? How would they treat Kirk's cameo then? Although Nick wasting time in the Pit of Despair trying to open the door directly leading to the artifact did waste some time. You should know better, Nick.  :afro:

Overall, this was a good episode and it was nice seeing a couple of former contestant's return to the Reboot. I liked how Nick knows that he's famous among the fanbase for his jump out of the temple.  :lol: I hope they feature more former contestants in future episodes.

That's awesome that Nick and Josh returned to the show and even made it to the temple. I have this episode taped and will watch it tomorrow. Out of all the Nicks on the show (Great Seal, Melted Head, Annie Oakley, and Missing Weather Maps), I expected Great Seal nick to be the last one. From the tone of his interview, it sounded like he didn't have a good time. Or maybe he was just being a little dramatic.    :afro:

I don't think Kristen's weight had anything to do with her performance. She just wasn't really an athletic person. The talent pool in Season 1 was pretty bad too and the producers pretty much allowed any contestant that signed up for the show to compete. That's why you see moat rejects from earlier episodes appear again on the last episode of each production day in Season 1. Kristen and Jim were even moat rejects from the Geronimo episode. I feel that most of the comments about Kristen's weight are supposed to be tongue-in-cheek comments and not taken seriously. Monica from Bifocal Monocle was skinny, but she struggled immensely in climbing the wall in the Pit of the Pendulum. Also, Garrett from Mata Hari is another contestant that received comments about his weight as welll. But he did a pretty good job in the temple except the Holes of Python (which caused a lot of contestants trouble).

I was just wondering, were all of the favorable contestants in the original Legends of the Hidden Temple skinny legends? It’s said in the Temple Run review for "The Lucky Pot-Bellied Pig of Amelia Earhart" that having not been thin was the reason Kristin had trouble climbing to the Observatory.
