Title: Episodes with similarities
Post by: The Red Jaguars on November 25, 2011, 04:34:15 PM
I thought that this might be a fun topic and talk about something new at the same time.\

Anyways, what are some episodes that have glaring similarities? The similarities do not have to be from the temple runs, but those are usually where they are found anyways. While making similarities, try to shy away from episodes that are too obvious like episodes that share the same artifact locations.

Here are a few obvious episodes with similarities.

The Paintbrush of Leonardo Da Vinci
The Stone Marker of Leif Erickson
- Both episodes featured an artifact located in the Tomb of the Ancient Kings
- Both runs featured the girls of each team encountering a deadend in the Swamp area along with a temple guard.
- Both girls scaled the entire central shaft before being taken out in the Observatory.
- At least one contestant from each run entered the Room of Three Gargoyles at some point, but failed to press all three tongues which forced them into the Cave of Sighs.

The Belly Button of Buddha
The Milk Bucket of Freydis
- Both episodes featured an artifact located in the Observatory.
- Both episodes were solo wins by frontrunner girls from each team.
- Both episodes featured a solo victory and were the only solo victories by girls with two pendants.
- Both girls run into the Torch Room/Room of the Secret Password after completing the monkey.

Let's see if we can find more.  :mrorange:

Upside-Down Compass and Lion-Slashed Jacket are very similar too. Both players on both teams were pretty slow, they both had to scale the central shaft (technically, the King's Storeroom in the Compass run was optional), the layouts were tough, and both runs ended in the Shrine.

The Two-Cornered Hat of Napoleon
- Both artifacts were located in the King's Storeroom.
- Both runs were Red Jaguars runs.
- Both boys started in the Crypt before being forced down into the Ledges.
- Both girls make a fatal mistake during the run that costs them the win (Kelly fails to assemble the monkey with plenty of time left and Carly takes the elevator instead of the Mine Shaft-Shrine door.)

The Missing Portrait of Hans Holbein
The Golden Spiderweb of Robert the Bruce
- Both artifacts were located in the Chamber of the Sacred Markers
- Both teams were forced to enter the Chamber via the bottom floor.

Plus, Hand Holbein and Robert the Bruce were NOT filmed on the same day. The former episode had the "2 islands and a plank" moat, and the latter had the "net and vine" moat. But, both episodes WERE filmed last on their respective filming days. And both filming days that featured the aforementioned moats were all losses.

Oops, I always forget thought that Hans Holbein is not part of the "impossible layout" day. Thanks for clearing that up, I will go edit my post.  :mrred:

Word on Sir Edmund Hillary and Anne Bonny comparisons. I was about to come in and do those two. But you forgot to add how both runners dropped their artifact in the Throne Room. ;)

For Henry VIII's Great Seal and Kamehameha, you can add how both episodes are about a king.

Some more.

The Mystikal Spellbook kids swept the temple games, not a 2-1 score like you put.

How did I forget that detail? Its been a while since I have seen that episode. :o

Here is one more I will throw out there since we compare them all the time:

Title: Re: Episodes with similarities
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on April 11, 2012, 01:07:16 AM
Also for those two episodes, both teams ran into a temple guard in the Throne Room at some point during the run. And, both times Kirk asked the team for their strategy.
Title: Re: Episodes with similarities

Got both added! I could probably more comparisons at a later time.
Title: Re: Episodes with similarities

I'm pretty sure that John Sutter and the Map to the Lost Gold Mine has the word "the" in the title. ;) :P

I actually meant at the beginning of the episode title.  :mrblue: Most of the episodes on the show begin with "The" at the beginning of their episode titles, except for a few season one episodes. But I am glad you pointed that out though and I will go back and fix that mistake.  ;) :mrsilver:
Title: Re: Episodes with similarities

Title: Re: Episodes with similarities
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on June 27, 2012, 04:26:38 PM
I think you meant to put "Metal Beard" in purple text, not orange. And the Purple Parrots from Metal Beard were 3rd in the moat, not 4th. And the paths for "Royal Torque" and "Good Luck Watch" were not identical at all. Janeen went straight into the King's Storeroom. Lissy was forced into the Chamber, then King's Storeroom. ;)

Another thing to add to "Royal Torque" and "Good Luck Watch" is that they were both second in their filming day. Plus, both had the same team colors going to the temple in the episode before them. Meaning, Red had a temple appearance ("Roland") before "Royal Torque." And Green had a temple appearance ("Sforza") before "Good Luck Watch." And both runs before them were wins too.

Post by: The Red Jaguars on June 28, 2012, 12:59:18 AM
Dang, I didn't realize there were so many similarities between "Queen Boadicea" and "Empress Eugenie". I fixed the mistake about the team's having identical paths and included the detail about the same production days and wins before their respective runs.  ;)

- Both episodes featured the Blue Barracudas losing to the temple team.
- Both teams traversed almost the same exact rooms (Swamp, entire central shaft, and the top entrance room for both runs. The "Leonardo Da Vinci" kids entered the bottom entrance room too though.)

No. The Paintbrush of Leonardo Da Vinci team won 2 pendants in the temple games.
Title: Re: Episodes with similarities
Post by: The Red Jaguars on August 26, 2012, 06:46:59 PM
I fixed the "Leonardo Da Vinci" mistake that you pointed out. I guess that I got it mixed up with "Stone Marker".  :o

Here are some more comparisons while I am at it:

The Imperial Purple Robe of Empress Theodora
The Good-Luck Watch of Empress Eugenie
- Both episodes dealt with an "Empress".
- Both artifacts dealt with an expensive piece of clothing related to each Empress.
- Both episodes were Green Monkey temple appearances.
- Both Green Monkey teams won two pendants in the temple games.
- Both Green Monkey male contestants had a "J" at the beginning of their names.

Post by: PurpleParrot4Life on September 17, 2012, 05:33:49 PM
Sorry for bumping this topic, but there is another similarity that I thought should be mentioned: War Fan of the Forty-Seven Ronin and Thornwood Gavel of Judge Roy Bean. They were both Season Three episodes. The frontrunners in both episodes were male. They took the same exact path, with the second guard appearing in the Room of the Secret Password. In both episodes, the first headdress in the Room of the Ancient Warriors activated the door to the Shrine of the Silver Monkey. Also, both had female second runners who got unnecessarily slowed down en route to where their partner was taken out: Elise had the issue with the door malfunction in the Tomb of the Headless Kings, while Kelly detoured to the King's Storeroom.
Title: Re: Episodes with similarities
Post by: PurpleParrot4Life on September 18, 2012, 01:21:43 PM
Another similarity is between "The War Fan of the Forty-Seven Ronin" and "The Comet-Embroidered Battle Flag of William the Conqueror." Both episodes were Season Three episodes. More importantly, both featured the door from the Pit to the Tomb of the Headless Kings getting stuck shut. Even though it did not impede their run, it did in fact happen when Jonathan ran through the Tomb of the Headless Kings (he pushed the door out of the way as he ran past, and there was enough momentum for the door to swing open and back, and then get stuck closed.

Also, a pretty obvious similarity is between "The Mussel Shell Armor of Apanupac" and "The Comet-Embroidered Battle Flag of William the Conqueror." They both featured the Green Monkeys running in the temple, attempting to reach the Chamber of the Sacred Markers in the Season Three Layout. They shared the same path. And, what I find most hilarious, is that in both episodes, when the door from the Room of the Ancient Warriors to the Chamber of the Sacred Markers opens, Kirk incorrectly says, "He's heading up to the King's Storeroom!"
Title: Re: Episodes with similarities
Post by: The Red Jaguars on September 18, 2012, 01:41:21 PM
