My opinion probably changed from a year ago, but I didn't really like S1L8 save for Pecos Bill's Lost Lariat.  It felt like sometimes it was way too obvious who was going to win and you weren't wondering what would happen so much as just waiting for it to happen.  Honestly, it was mostly the moat because a lot of teams just couldn't do it, and the last team or two always seemed to take forever.  I think the bad start to the episodes made me a little more cynical.

So, now that I'm back I guess I should finish what I started.  Looking back through the thread, I left off at S1L7, even though I actually have up through S2L1 done.  Way back when some server error deleted some of my progress.  I went back and watched the episodes to double-check my thoughts (I changed some rankings around, but only by a point or two) and to remember what I thought about each episode.  So let's get back to this with S1L8.  And as always, discussion and debate is open.

Overall, I thought most of these, with the exception of Pecos Bill's Lost Lariat, were pretty boring episodes.

KING TUT'S COBRA STAFF:

Purple Parrots - Eusinia
Moat: 6
Steps of Knowledge: 6
Individual Temple Game: 7
Team Temple Game: 8
Temple Run: 5
Overall: 6.4

Purple Parrots - David
Moat: 5
Steps of Knowledge: 6
Individual Temple Game: 4
Team Temple Game: 8
Temple Run: 5
Overall: 5.6

Blue Barracudas - Stacy
Moat: 6
Steps of Knowledge: 7
Individual Temple Game: 6
Team Temple Game: 5
Overall: 6

Blue Barracudas - Joe
Moat: 7
Steps of Knowledge: 7
Individual Temple Game: 5
Team Temple Game: 5
Overall: 6

Notes about this episode: This episode really wasn't very exciting to watch.  In pretty much every round, you knew who was going to win or move on even if you hadn't seen the episode before, and that's only fun to watch if the winner does just a purely amazing job, which definitely can't be said about Eusinia and David.  The Temple Run was okay.  Eusinia and David weren't amazing but with time running out just a couple rooms away, it was kind of exciting to see if they would get to the staff (Assuming that you didn't already know, like all of us).


THE DRAGON LADY AND THE BLUE PEARL:

Orange Iguanas - Jennifer
Moat: 7
Steps of Knowledge: 2
Individual Temple Game: 5
Team Temple Game: 6
Temple Run: 8
Overall: 5.6

Orange Iguanas - Albert
Moat: 4
Steps of Knowledge: 5
Individual Temple Game: 6
Team Temple Game: 8
Temple Run: 5
Overall: 5.6

Red Jaguars - Christine
Moat: 6
Steps of Knowledge: 1
Individual Temple Game: 5
Team Temple Game: 5
Overall: 4.25

Red Jaguars - Robbie
Moat: 7
Steps of Knowledge: 5
Individual Temple Game: 5
Team Temple Game: 7
Overall: 6

Notes about this episode: This was a little better.  The Temple Run situation was similar with a not very amazing team but still a close, exciting finish thanks to Jennifer hustling to make up time, though this time with a disappointing finish.  This time however, the Temple Games were a close matchup.  Especially in the last two games, you didn't immediately know who would win.  Moat and Steps were still less than exciting.


THE CODEBOOK OF MATA HARI:

Silver Snakes - Rinette
Moat: 6
Steps of Knowledge: 2
Individual Temple Game: 5
Team Temple Game: 5
Temple Run: 3
Overall: 4.2

Silver Snakes - Gareth
Moat: 6
Steps of Knowledge: 8
Individual Temple Game: 4
Team Temple Game: 5
Temple Run: 6
Overall: 5.8

Blue Barracudas - Gigi
Moat: 3
Steps of Knowledge: 1
Individual Temple Game: 5
Team Temple Game: 1
Overall: 2.5

Blue Barracudas - Brian
Moat: 7
Steps of Knowledge: 4
Individual Temple Game: 5
Team Temple Game: 4
Overall: 5

Notes about this episode:  Here's a perfect example of how even if the competitions are close, it's not exciting if the "best" people still suck.  People know this episode for the controversial "furthest along" calls in the Temple Games, but honestly, it was probably better that the Silver Snakes won because they were clearly the better team, even if that isn't saying much.  The only one I thought was remotely okay was Gareth.  I give credit to him because he wasn't horrible, and at least he was pretty smart, just not very physical.


PECOS BILL'S LOST LARIAT:

Green Monkeys - Colleen
Moat: 6
Steps of Knowledge: 6
Individual Temple Game: 7
Team Temple Game: 8
Temple Run: 8
Overall: 7

Green Monkeys - Chris
Moat: 6
Steps of Knowledge: 4
Individual Temple Game: 6
Team Temple Game: 7
Temple Run: 5
Overall: 5.6

Blue Barracudas - Janelle
Moat: 7
Steps of Knowledge: 6
Individual Temple Game: 7
Team Temple Game: 7
Overall: 6.75

Blue Barracudas - Hank
Moat: 8
Steps of Knowledge: 7
Individual Temple Game: 5
Team Temple Game: 8
Overall: 7

Notes about this episode: This one was very fun to watch because not only were the contestants actually good, but the rounds were very close and competitive.  In fact, if Chris hadn't have screwed up so badly in the Temple Run, I would say this was one of the single best episodes in Season 1.  I'm a little torn about who won, though, because I really liked Hank and Janelle and wanted them to win, but at the same time I know that Colleen did really well to earn that win.  Chris, being the clear worst of the four, definitely shouldn't have earned the win, but all the more to Colleen for making up for that and still winning.


ROBIN HOOD AND MARIAN'S SILK LADDER:

Silver Snakes - Erica
Moat: 8
Steps of Knowledge: 6
Individual Temple Game: 5
Team Temple Game: 8
Temple Run: 7
Overall: 6.8

Silver Snakes - Jeremy
Moat: 6
Steps of Knowledge: 7
Individual Temple Game: 4
Team Temple Game: 7
Temple Run: 5
Overall: 5.8

Purple Parrots - Nicole
Moat: 7
Steps of Knowledge: 3
Individual Temple Game: 4
Team Temple Game: 6
Overall: 5

Purple Parrots - Dustin
Moat: 7
Steps of Knowledge: 5
Individual Temple Game: 3
Team Temple Game: 7
Overall: 5.5

Notes about this episode: To nobody's surprise, this was a pretty lame episode.  I can say that Erica and Jeremy definitely deserved to make it to the Temple Run over the Purple Parrots, but I don't think they deserved the grand prize win.  Erica maybe, but definitely not Jeremy.
