Title: Figure It Out
Post by: PAK Man on August 10, 2006, 03:02:42 PM
I don't know if this is the right place to put this, but I didn't know where else it would go.

Who here is a fan of Figure it Out? I'm only a fan of the first season episodes, when they were giving away props from the classic Nick shows. I know that it was a sad time, but at the same time it was interesting seeing what they gave away (what I would do for a Temple Guard mask). After the first season, the show slowly started to deteriorate in quality. Figure it Out: Family Style felt like a complete waste of time to me. It was also this time when I slowly began to realize that many of these "talents" were things that almost any other kid could do. By the time Wild Style came along, I had stopped watching it. How did you feel about Figure it Out?

Yeah, I'm mainly a fan of FIO and Legends.

I love Summer Sanders. She is so beautiful. Summer is my Role Model. I wish that they could bring back Figure It Out I used to watch it every single day. Well just to see her. My favorite episode of Figure It Out was the one where Summer was one of the panelists and she had the beautiful hair-do and then of course she got slimed and that was the first time that I got to see Summer get slimed. I finally get to see her everyday now because I now have the Nick Gas channel. By the way Summer gave birth to a little girl named Skye Bella who was  born on April 21, 2006 with her husband Erik Schlopy (July 30, 2005 - present)

Lori Beth Denberg is my hero. <3


The other day i saw them give away one of the cabinets from The Room of the Secret Password. They always gave away the gold-colored helmets too.

I'll forever love Figure It Out. However, i gotta say, Figre It Out Family Style was my least favorite.... Season 2 regular Figure It Out episodes were the best. :P

I used to watch Figure it Out, but I don't watch it that much now.  I loved it when they gave away props from other shows.

To me, FIO got really cool around season 2 up through the Family Style era.  Wild Style was pretty cool as well.

Lori Beth and Danny are my favorite panelists.  Danny, because he gets slimed almost every time he appears, and Lori Beth, because she has the uncanny ability to figure out almost every one of the contestants' secrets.

My favorite episode is the one where Lori Beth and Summer switched places for the first half.  In the second round, the secret was a slime guard hat.  So, you can probably guess what the first clue was.  LOL.  And, then, the Secret Slime Action was "Wearing Slime", and the panelists got even greener!  And, then, to top it off, when Kenan Thompson (All That) demonstrated the talent, he got it yet again, just before outright dumping the slime on the kid's head.  That was without a doubt the wildest FIO episode ever.

Figure it Out certainly had the most energy of the live action shows of its time. It was a good concept, but spoiled in nearly all of the episodes with questions like ''Does it have to do with cheese?'' Look, I know there is a place for a silly question or two, but that show was so full of them it ruined it for me. The few episodes it didn't ruin were fantastic, though, and I always like watching the kids' talents. The best was the stilt dancer.

I remember in one episode the guest's secret was "Invented shower foot rest for shaving."

Taran Noah Smith (from Home Improvement) asked "Does it have anything to do with a foot long hot dog?"

To his surprise, it did.

There was another episode where Mike O'Malley said something to the effect of "Were you a member of the Mafia?" and one of the words was "member," and the noise played, much to Mike's astonishment. I can't stand the episodes where a kid has a talent that anybody could do. Like that episode where the kid was a professonal sheep-shearer. Someone asked if anybody could do it, and he said no.  :roll: Whatever.

My favorite panelist is Lori Beth, because she seems very serious, but also has a great sense of humor. I loved the episode where she got slimed because she looked at Josh, and then proceeded to wash the slime off on Josh's head. Priceless.

Here is a clip of my number one favorite episode of Figure It Out:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k3WjCcXO5eM (http://http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k3WjCcXO5eM)

The reason why is because my Girl my Role Model Summer Sanders got slimed.

Man, Summer's got a wicked-cool flowery hairdo in today's second episode.

The first episode today was the Mike-Josh-Danny-Lori Beth combo, my favorite set of panelists on the show.  Josh's slimings are always great, because of his hilarious poses.

So, yesterday's second FIO episode contained a rather funny moment.  It was the second game, and the answer head at that moment read "Works in ____ Library".  So, the Charade Brigade comes out, like it normally does, but just as they're about to do their thing, Josh utters the word "pet", which just happened to be the final blank needed.  The Brigade was there for, like, 2 seconds, and never even got to start their charade.  It was quite hilarious.

My FAVORITE Figure It Out moment, was this one episode where this chick built this AWESOME sandcastle, and they decided to wheel it out onto the stage, and in doing so, the vibrations DESTROYED THE CASTLE!!!!!!  The chicks face who built the castle was priceless.

"Luckily" they already had video of the castle, and they showed that instead.

It was way funny, and my buddy had DVR when we watched it, and we rewound it a ton of times.

There was one episode where the girl was something to the effect of "Alaskan Salmon Tossing Champion." The panel had figured out Alaskan Salmon Tossing ______. Kevin Kopelow guessed that it was Alaskan Salmon Tossing Freak. The audience laughed, but the girl stuck her tongue out at Kevin. The next two panelists failed to solve the solution, and the girl looked very happy that she was going to win. All of a sudden, Lori Beth guessed and solved the puzzle correctly. I remembering thinking how it served her right to not win the trip after she stuck her tongue out at Kevin.

By the way, that episode with the sand castle falling sounds hysterical.

One of the episodes in today's doubleheader was an early season 1 ep.  Notice how Summer goes into more specifics on the Secret Slime Action rules, and almost forgets to toss it to J to describe the SSA prize both times.  The episode is also memorable for a classic Lori Beth solve.

i know someone has the exact stats for this, but i think lori beth was probably the best panelist due to she would almost always solve the puzzle

I wouldn't be surprised. She was the only panelist who actually tried. Then you have panelists like Danny Tambourelli asking absolutely stupid questions: "Does it have to do with cheese?"


I personally wondered what would happen if you asked the contestant, "Is the answer to this question 'no'?"

There's a Figure it Out web site I found somewhere that has a theory that Lori Beth was given the answers ahead of time. Their evidence is that she was always the one (in season one anyway) who solved the puzzles. The site is right here (http://http://www.freewebs.com/sliming/revealingthetruth.htm). I don't know if I agree about that, but I do agree with them about the laughing.

I like Figure It Out. Some of the talents on the show are amazing (whites others are just plain dumb). My two favorite panelist were Lori Beth and Danny.

I cannot stand to watch any episodes with Shane or Mark. Neither of them were funny even when they treid to act like it. The worst FIO episodes are the Mark-Shane-Arjay-Steve pairing.
