I shall give the Silver Snakes a 4. They are probably my second least favorite team to enter the temple. They have a bunch of bad episodes (Golden Cricket Cage, Snow Cone, Nathan Hale, Lost Hammer, and Mata Hari) are some episodes I refuse to watch. And while there were a lot of wins from this team, most of them are average or just suck. I like Sultan Saladin, Galileo's Cannonball, and Bandit Queen - that is pretty much it. Other than that, most of their episodes were weak and featured weak teams. Hell, the Silver Snakes in "Sir Edmund Hillary" were the only SS team to sweep the temple games. Most of their episodes are not at the top of my "Go back to watch" list. Overall, they are my least favorite team on the show.

I gave them a 5, they are also my second least favorite team. It seemed like they always made it to the temple in Season 1, especially after beating the Red Jaguars. And that just boring really fast. Didn't care about them in the latter two seasons either. But they DID have some solid runs, "Sultan Saladin," "Golden Earring," and "Bandit Queen," to name a few. They're not even an interesting team to look at too, must be their plain team colors.

I almost forgot to update this last night. Either way, the Silver Snakes end with a score of 5.00.

Next up is the Green Monkeys.  :mrgreen:

Post by: The Red Jaguars on February 13, 2013, 02:37:16 PM
I am going to give the Silver Monkey a 9. There is no denying that this was the most dominant team on the show. They probably have the best set of wins on the show: Lawrence of Arabia's Headdress, Emiliano Zapata, Pirate Captain, and Apanuugpak. They also have a bunch of solid episodes that weren't wins like Ivan the Terrible and Empress Eugenie. A lot of my favorite episodes featured the Green Monkeys going to the temple. I did dock one point though because I was tired of seeing them going to the temple in S3. Other than that, they are one of the best teams if not the best team on the show.

I am going to give the Silver Monkey a 9.

That's an insult!  :P

Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on February 13, 2013, 03:33:07 PM
You just don't stop with those Fogg Ups, do you TRJ? XD

Anyways, Green Monkeys get a 9. Great team with great episodes, whether it was a win or a loss. My only complaint is that they went to the temple way too much in Season 3. But even then, they only had maybe three bad runs and that's it.
Title: Re: Rate the Legends Team - Day Two: Green Monkeys
Post by: GreenMonkeys#1 on February 13, 2013, 04:11:30 PM
Silver Monkey?

The Green Monkeys get a 9. They were the most dominant team and had some of the greatest teams ever on the show (David & Candice, Gator & Amanda, Jarrid & Jessica, Travis & Elise...) they only had three shit runs (William Tell, Robert the Bruce, Cosa Rara) of all the 6 teams, they were the best.
Title: Re: Rate the Legends Team - Day Two: Green Monkeys
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on February 13, 2013, 06:23:44 PM
I would have said "Xerxes" was the crap run, but Cosa Rara was bad too I guess.
Title: Re: Rate the Legends Team - Day Two: Green Monkeys
Post by: The Red Jaguars on February 13, 2013, 09:47:29 PM
I personally don't mind Robert the Bruce at all. The temple run did have a bad outcome, but the team made just as much progress as the "Hans Holbein" team. It's not very exciting to watch, but not a terrible run. I agree with Cosa Rara though, that temple run is so boring and sucks. And William Tell and Xerxes are easily the worst Green Monkey runs.

I thought Cosa Rara was meh. Xerxes and William Tell are the runs that are plain shit. :roll:

Silver Snakes: 4 (never liked them)
Green Monkeys: 9 (they were cool and were very strong)

This. Cosa Rara was a boring run, but not terrible like the latter two runs.

That's what makes the Green Monkeys a great team. Almost all of their runs were strong. They're my third favorite team on the show behind the Blue Barracudas (second) and the Purple Parrots (first).
Title: Re: Rate the Legends Team - Day Two: Green Monkeys
Post by: The Red Jaguars on February 14, 2013, 02:19:11 PM
I think this is a good stopping point for the Green Monkeys. They will finish with a 9.00.

Next up is the Red Jaguars.  :mrred:  :mrred:  :mrred:  :mrred:  :mrred:  :mrred:
Title: Re: Rate the Legends Team - Day Three: Red Jaguars
Post by: The Red Jaguars on February 14, 2013, 02:27:29 PM
I am going to give the Red Jaguars a 6. Even though they are one of my favorite teams (after the Green Monkeys), I have to admit that a lot of their episodes are just not good at all. Blackbeard's Treasure Map, Alhambra, Queen Nzinga, Charles Lindbergh, and Frederick Douglass are probably are bottom tier episodes on the show. And as many temple appearances they have made, only four of them resulted in wins. And in the episodes that they did win, the wins ended up being pretty easy except for one. But this team is memorable to me because red was my favorite color growing up and I remember their episodes more distinctively than other teams. Some of my favorite Red Jaguar episodes include Genghis Khan, Napoleon, Montezuma, Queen Boadicea, and Catherine the Great.
Title: Re: Rate the Legends Team - Day Three: Red Jaguars
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on February 14, 2013, 03:55:46 PM
I gave them a 2, they are by far my least favorite team ever. Every episode they went to the temple (except for Catherine the Great, Napoleon, Montezuma, and maybe Genghis Khan), were terrible. Very rarely did they ever have their act together and a lot of their episodes are some of the absolute worst ever. And when they did win, (excluding Catherine the Great), the layout was way too cheap and unexciting.
Title: Re: Rate the Legends Team - Day Three: Red Jaguars
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on February 14, 2013, 10:22:50 PM
So TRJ, your name is in relation to the Red Jaguars, but you gave them a 6? That's odd. :|

I don't blame you though. I gave them a 5. I like them slightly more than the Silver Snakes, but that's not saying much. This team was pretty mediocre, no offense.
Title: Re: Rate the Legends Team - Day Three: Red Jaguars
Post by: The Red Jaguars on February 15, 2013, 03:12:35 PM
I will admit that part of the reason I picked The Red Jaguars as my username because when I first joined, everyone seemed to have a team color as a username. There was The Purple Parrot (your twin ;) ), The Silver Snake, The Green Monkey, The Blue Barracuda. I don't recall an Orange Iguana name. With that being said, the Red Jaguars finish with a 4.50.

And since we were talking about them, next up is the Orange Iguanas.
Title: Re: Rate the Legends Team - Day Four: Orange Iguanas
Post by: The Red Jaguars on February 15, 2013, 03:17:07 PM
I am giving the Orange Iguanas a 2. I am sorry, but this is my least favorite team on the show. They had the most temple appearances on the show, yet most of their episodes are boring or flatout bad. A lot of the episodes I hate are Orange Iguana episodes. They also pretty much dominated every team in order to get to the temple. But there are few episodes I do like - Atocha, Blue Pearl, Nostradamus, and Sir Gawain. Out of 24 temple appearances, that I all I really like. Other than that, a boring team with WAY too many forgettable episodes.  :|
Title: Re: Rate the Legends Team - Day Four: Orange Iguanas
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on February 15, 2013, 03:24:15 PM
I gave them a 5. They were a cool team, but just about every single episode of theirs had boring temple runs and/or episodes. The only Orange Iguanas episodes I like are Atocha, Dolley Madison, Blue Pearl, Sir Gawain, and Nostradamus. Furthermore, I have little respect for ANY team that dominates another team (in this case, the Purple Parrots) in all 8 episodes that featured that pair. Come on, even the Blue Barracudas got to beat the Orange Iguanas once. Plus, their lose/win ratio is the absolute worst on the show. And this is the team that lost the temple games the least? =/
Title: Re: Rate the Legends Team - Day Four: Orange Iguanas
Post by: SGLegendsfan on February 16, 2013, 08:51:50 AM
Man im late!!

I am giving the iguanas a 4. Practically an average team, and having the most temple appearances does not make them the strongest team (if i saw this earlier, i too would give the green monkeys a 9).
Title: Re: Rate the Legends Team - Day Four: Orange Iguanas
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on February 16, 2013, 10:03:39 AM
So far, I'm the only 6. They're not my least favorite team, but as a Purple Parrot fan, they annoyed me a lot. Still, they weren't bad.
Title: Re: Rate the Legends Team - Day Four: Orange Iguanas
Post by: The Red Jaguars on February 16, 2013, 04:28:13 PM
Time is up for the Orange Iguanas. They will finish with a 4.00 score.

Next up is the Purple Parrots.
Title: Re: Rate the Legends Team - Day Five: Purple Parrots
Post by: The Red Jaguars on February 16, 2013, 04:36:25 PM
I gave the Purple Parrots a score of an 8. They are my third favorite team on the show after the Jaguars and Green Monkeys, While they have made it to the temple far fewer times than any other temple team, this is part of their charm as it gives them the "underdog" tag. They are the team that definitely had the most bad luck on the show - lost over 30+ temple game rounds, only won one tiebreaker, and never even beat the Orange Iguanas (8 times total). On the other hand, they had very dominant teams that made it to the temple and more than half of their temple appearances featured them with two pendants. It is too bad they didn't make it to the temple more because I would've loved to see them in the temple over other teams (Golden Cricket Cage, Enormous Feather, and Amelia Earhart are just a few). But their very few temple appearances is why they are loved. And they only really have two bad episodes - Little John and Oracle Bowl. And while they only had 3 wins, 2/3 wins are in my top 10 favorite wins (Egyptian Queen and Freydis).
Title: Re: Rate the Legends Team - Day Five: Purple Parrots
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on February 16, 2013, 06:15:47 PM
I gave it a 9, for all the same reasons TRJ stated. Gotta stick with the underdogs. :mrpurple: :mrpink:

Post by: The Red Jaguars on February 17, 2013, 12:33:41 AM
Out of all three Purple Parrot wins (Billy the Kid, Freydis, and Egyptian Queen), which ones do you guys like the most?

I have to say Freydis by far. Very exciting temple ending and one of the few episodes where I don't think the slow runner should be slammed.
Title: Re: Rate the Legends Team - Day Five: Purple Parrots
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on February 17, 2013, 12:53:03 AM
Freydis. For it's memorable jump in the Pit and its one second finish. The other Parrot wins are still great though.
Title: Re: Rate the Legends Team - Day Five: Purple Parrots
Post by: SGLegendsfan on February 17, 2013, 06:24:25 AM
I like all 3 wins! anyway, i am giving the parrots a 9! my favourite team, i used to root for them all the time. too bad the less athletic players are always parrots :(
Title: Re: Rate the Legends Team - Day Five: Purple Parrots
Post by: The Red Jaguars on February 17, 2013, 07:52:36 PM
This needs an update real bad. So the Purple Parrots will finish with a 8.60.

Next up is the Blue Barracuda, our final team.  :mrblue:
Title: Re: Rate the Legends Team - Day Six: Blue Barracudas
Post by: The Red Jaguars on February 17, 2013, 07:59:52 PM
I am giving the Blue Barracudas an 8. They were another pretty solid team on the show and there is a lot of stuff I like about them. Two of my all time favorite episodes are Barracuda episodes - Map to the Lost Gold Mine and Annie Taylor. Both of these episodes are in my top 5. Also, I love the colors of their shirts and they probably had the best shirt designs on the show. There is absolutely no reason to hate them either. They didn't have many bad episodes (Amelia Earhart, Stone Head, and Jean Lafitte are the only real bad ones). So I don't have a problem with them at all. Cool team design with a couple of my all time favorite episodes.  :mrblue:
Title: Re: Rate the Legends Team - Day Six: Blue Barracudas
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on February 17, 2013, 08:56:40 PM
I give it an 8, for all the same reasons as TRJ. The Blue Barracudas are my second favorite team behind the Purple Parrots. And I also liked their team colors, very interesting to look at. My two favorite runs from them (being John Sutter and Annie Taylor) are some of my favorite episodes of all time. It's too bad they never won again after Annie Taylor.
Title: Re: Rate the Legends Team - Day Six: Blue Barracudas
Post by: SGLegendsfan on February 17, 2013, 10:13:14 PM
8! Great wins, solid losses, my 3rd favourite team after the PPs and the GMs :D
Title: Re: Rate the Legends Team - Day Six: Blue Barracudas
Post by: GreenMonkeys#1 on February 17, 2013, 10:28:20 PM
I'll give the Barracudas an 8 as well. 3 of their 5 wins are in my top 20 (The Belly Button of Buddha, John Sutter and the Map to the Lost Gold Mine, & The Lucky Pillow of Annie Taylor). And it was very rare to have them suck in the Temple. Only 2 temple runs are in the bottom 20 of mine (Jean Lafitte, & Mary Shelley). They are my Tied for3rd favorite team with the SS but behind the GM & RJ and ahead of the OI & PP. The Blue looks the most neonish of all the team colors as well.

Again, the Annie Taylor episode did not include a pig; it was a pillow.

My thoughts:
None of these rankings surprise me at all. All of these rankings pretty much make sense.

 :monkeys2: : The most dominant team with some of the best wins.

 :parrots2: : The underdog team that everyone wants to root for and see succeed.

 :barracudas2: : The team with some classic episodes that is hard to hate.

 :snakes2: : Another pretty successful team in the temple with some gems themselves.

 :iguanas2: : The forgettable team that is filled with a lot of boring and bad episodes.

 :jaguars2: : The team that went to the temple too many times with either lame wins or bad temple appearances.

As always, thanks for voting. I think I am going to do a "Rate the Legends season" next. :P

The :jaguars2: and :iguanas2: should be switched.

There are some surprisers though, everyone knew the Green Monkeys were the best but to have the 2nd best be the Purple Parrots :| They went to the Temple the least but they got 5/11 artifacts grabbed which was good. It reall should've been 7 with Annie Oakley and the GET THE PEPPERONI. Really, even if the Purple Parrots are my least favorite team. They still do really good.

Although my second least favorite team the Orange Iguanas and my 2nd favorite team the Red Jaguars totally bombed it with runs like One Eyed Jack, Blackbeard, Alhambra, Grandy Nanny, and so on...

I do agree with the Silver Snakes and the Blue Barracudas rank.

I do agree with the Silver Snakes and the Blue Barracudas rank.

I think the Purple Parrots are fine at #2. Even though they had the fewest temple appearances, it wasn't like they weren't advancing past the other rounds. They did lose the temple games 30+ times, so there was 30+ additional tries they had in the temple. And not to mention, a lot of those temple game losses were tiebreakers too. And they don't have a plethora of bad temple runs like the Red Jaguars, Silver Snakes, and Orange Iguanas did. There only real bad runs were Little John and Sultan Suleiman. Oracle Bowl kind of sucked too, but at least Jackie and Shane won two pendants.

But yeah, Annie Oakley and Blackfeet Chief should've been wins for sure. And Golden Pepperoni should've been an artifact grab, but we know the ending to that one.  :o
