October 10th is approaching fast! I already have the show recorded in case I forget. I'm hoping it's good!

Also, would you like to see a "Legends of the Hidden Temple at Super Bowl" special next February like I do?

Forgot to answer this. Meant to do that earlier.

Would I like to see that? Sure. Will it happen? Realistically, it's most likely not gonna happen.

Remember we got a “Double Dare at Super Bowl” special? Why don’t you think the “Legends of the Hidden Temple at Super Bowl” special will happen next February? Could it happen in February of 2023?

Do you want Hidden Temple Park to become a real world theme park? If you do, please remember to sign and share my petition to make that happen.

I don't remember a Double Dare at Super Bowl special happening. Unless it did and I just haven't paid attention.

I guess you can say I'm pessimistic and I don't have much faith in the NFL to do this for Legends.

Yeah, NFL and Double Dare did a special last February. All I remember was that the course was like 10 obstacles and 90 seconds and each team ran it individually, both team beat it, and the show decided to give both teams $10,000 for their charities.

I would love to see Legends at the Super Bowl, but unfortunately I don’t think that’ll happen unless they do a Super Bowl special episode featuring players playing for charity.

So, I rewatched the episode a few more times to fully grasp what I saw.

And in all honesty, it’s pretty good.

There are a few flaws like going to the Temple with 2 Pendants no matter what, the layout style where only certain doors open (also the Temple Guard’s door in the Shrine being the same as a regular door kinda ticks me off), the Temple Games set up looking mildly cheap (the second game’s set up with the cardboard boxes is my main gripe, as well as the plastic bottles from the Moat, but I can kinda overlook that one), Cristela isn’t bad as host, but their were probably better picks than her.

I do love the room ideas with the exception of the names. Don’t care for the names of the Royal Rage Room (don’t know why) and the Room of the Beloved (don’t get why they named it that when Beheaded fits better with the challenge of the room). There’s also what looks to be another room that did not have any mention, buts it’s clearly marked on the diagram map (above The Queen’s Armory), with a ladder clearly connected to it, unless it’s a passageway from the Shrine and wrap around to it (like the stairs from The Observatory to either The Pit or Kings Storeroom area).

The Moat I do enjoy that it’s more complex than it was with more challenges. The Steps remaining the same, with the sound effect. LOVE the emerald color of the pendants (same original design on them as well).

Don’t know if it was noticed, but the time out sound effect is an updated version of the Dark Forest door sound effect from season 2.


In all, I’d give it a B-. If they rework a few items, rework the Temple just a bit, and possibly bring back the Temple Run music, then I’ll jump it to a solid A.

Also, and I’ll say it again, screw the “First team to 2 Pendants wins” rule. If you win the Temple Game flat out, then 2 pendants are yours. If you go to the tiebreaker, then you receive a half pendant and the other is in the Temple. I wouldn’t even care if Olmec says “Enter The Crypt of the Heartless. Reach into the rotten corpses and find the beating heart. Place the bloody organ in the chamber, and watch out for the half pendant on top of the chamber…” or even tells you where else it could possibly be.

Yeah, I have some thoughts as well:

Here are some pros and cons, as I see them, from each aspect of the show:

MOAT:

Obviously this was a more fitting version of the moat, and I like the multi-step element of it. The cut-ins to the player interviews is very annoying, especially since most of it is just corny-jokes / fake drama real housewives-style. One real issue I have with the show is that it isn't "in real time" like the original was. You really felt like they were running right from the Moat to the Steps in the original version. Here... anything but.

The props are a bit cheap.... plastic smoothie style cups for the poison? Really? Also, the moat music is just plain bland, and not catchy at all. One thing I do like is including the legend into the moat, that's smart.


STEPS:

Probably the most faithful aspect of the show, despite only having three chimes. Again, why can't we have the original music, or some spruced up version of it??? We have the original chime, etc. The Guatemala question was actually interesting, and the Legend has some factual basis.

GAMES:

I quite liked the games themselves. Like the moat, they were far more dimensional, but lacked the "real time" excitement that the original brought. There was a ton of editing in the first game to make it look like that Red Jaguars were closer to finishing their Ice Bath pyramid than they actually were... That never happened in the original. The tiebreak format is absurd... whoever decided that death by guard was a bad idea, should really re-evaluate that decision.

TEMPLE:

Calling it the "Temple Run" really annoyed me. No one ever referred to it as that in the original. Another example of not using an iconic track. As I mentioned previously, there's absolutely no tension with the third guard. I can just see no solo runs in this game, given the forced route. That being said, there's some fun in this layout, with some good rooms. I had absolutely no idea which way they player should turn or what route they should take, probably because I'm so used to the old layout.  That's probably what those confused contestants were feeling in the original! That being said, I prefer a more horizontal temple, versus this condensed & stacked one.

OTHER THOUGHTS

Hosting was fine.

Set was pretty good.

Ultimately though, unlike seeing a young child chop her feet over her partner retrieving a Scabbard, and sending them to some cheesy destination that means the world to them (and ultimately, winning a game), I'm watching adults compete for $25K. Not nearly as fun.

The only thing that I wish the new version had was the original host.

Mild spoiler; read at your own risk..









The damn room door that leads from The Room of the Beloved to The Shrine also hid the damn Temple Guard. Also the door from The Shrine to the new room (already forgot the name) also held the Guard last week. Ugh, I absolutely hate that

Well that temple run kind of sucked. The first runner (Blue Barracudas made it to the temple by the way) wasted way too much time in the Royal Rage Room or whatever it's called. She struggled mightily to break the pots. Either she wasn't strong enough or those are some really tough pots to break. Her poor partner didn't have a chance once she got caught by the second guard.

A random thought popped up in my head while I was at work today:

What would happen in this reboot if in the temple, a contestant drops a piece of the Silver Monkey into the room below (just like in the Montezuma and Henry Hudson episodes)? The Dark Forest isn't directly below it now and even then, this Dark Forest doesn't have trees with temple spirits in them.

Don’t really see it happening since the pedestal is farther away from the barricade/door, but that would be interesting to see what they’d do

Small spoiler alert. Read at own risk;








Got home JUST after it ended and just watched the recording, and it was a throughly enjoyable episode. Also, Olmec described EVERY. SINGLE. ROOM. Not just the route they have to take.

Won’t give all spoilers out, but the Stone Wall in the Dark Forest is back as well.


I’m starting to see hope with the revival after tonight.

Spoilers below, read at your own risk:



















FIRST TEMPLE WIN OF THE REBOOT!!! It was a solo win too! I honestly didn't think this would be a win because the first runner struggled with the Room of the Heartless (I think that's what it's called). She even got met by a temple guard that was hiding behind the locked door after the objective was finally complete, similar to that of the Chamber of the Sacred Markers. It was early on in the run when that happened, so I thought she would eventually get caught by a second guard at some point. However, in the Pit of Despair, she chose to go right, into the Spider's Lair where she then entered the Room of the Lost Treasure (again, I'm not sure if that room name is correct; I'll get these names figured out eventually, lol). She was slow with this one too, but once she was done, she entered the Shrine of the Silver Monkey and I was fully expecting a second temple guard here. However, it didn't happen. She assembled the statue easily, entered the Room of the Beloved (I think that's it) where the Talking Rooster (yes, really) was at, and won with plenty of time to spare.

I'd say the Red Jaguars got lucky here. I really do believe this temple run had an alternate path because those other two temple guards had to be somewhere. So maybe this reboot's temple runs aren't always set to be one path after all? If that's the case, then I'll say that I'm glad. Multiple pathways in the temple are a good thing in my opinion. The more options, the better. That being said, let's just hope these teams avoid pulling an Electrified Key by taking the longest route possible.




















End spoiler. Putting this here so that it's harder for people to read what was said above if anyone chooses to do a quick reply.

All those kids who struggled in the past to put the Silver Monkey together? You can feel a little better now after seeing tonight's attempt. That was awful. I think that guy took over a minute because the belly was on wrong. He pulled a Larry from Mysterious Manuscript. :roll:
