Title: Would the Purple Parrots do better? Day 18: Good-Luck Watch of Empress Eugenie
Post by: The Red Jaguars on December 09, 2014, 01:52:43 AM
We are always talking about episodes where the Purple Parrots would do better had they gone to the temple. Despite having very few temple appearances, the Purple Parrots were still a pretty dominant temple team and appeared in many temple games. In this topic, I am going to cover a temple LOSS where the temple team loses. We will decide whether the losing Purple Parrot team would do better than the current temple team. I know that a lot of this topic is based on speculation (the losing team could be a Jessica and Jarrid or a John and Tia), but you can also judge how well the players will perform by their pre-temple performances.

First up is "The Golden Cup of Belshazzar"! Here is a summary of the Red Jaguars progress in that episode:

Do you think the Purple Parrots would've done better than this team? My opinion will be in the next post. ;)

I voted no for this episode. Even though Katherine and Sean made little progress, this temple layout was just insane and one of the hardest ones on the show. There was no correct direction to go and was riddled with dead ends. If the Purple Parrots had this layout, they would've me the same progress as the Red Jaguars. No team would be successful with this layout.  :?

No. The layout was impossible, and the Parrots completely bombed the last temple game.

This is the type of temple run where you could give it Jennifer and Damian and they still would lose by a long shot. There was no way any team would've had success with it. :!:

Plus, imagine if Katherine and Sean (and the Purple Parrots for that matter) got to tape their temple run in S1L1 layout after all. That would've been another Dead Man's Hand type run waiting for happen. With even more dead ends galore. :shock:

I agree. I don't think even the Lawrence of Arabia team would've won with that layout either. O_O

Post by: The Red Jaguars on December 09, 2014, 07:35:51 PM
Yeah, no way Galileo, Sir Edmund Hillary, John Sutter, or Lawrence of Arabia's team had a chance at this layout. Even Jessica and Jarrid in their prime wouldn't have done better.

I think we can all agree that the Purple Parrots would not have had a better outcome with Belshazzar's layout. ;)

Next up is "The Golden Cricket Cage of Khan". Do you think that Mike and Michelle would've done better than the Silver Snakes? Here is a summary of the temple run below. :afro:

I voted for a yes in this layout, no questions asked. :roll: Even though the Purple Parrots kind of sucked in this episode, there is no way that they could do worse than John and Tia. I mean the Silver Snakes only made it through 4 room in 3 minutes! There is no way in hell that the Purple Parrots suck that bad. ANY team would've done better than John and Tia.  :afro:

YES. Any team would've done better than John and Tia. Remind me again how "the Purple Parrots would've done a worse job" again? :roll:

I literally can't think of a way that they could do worse. I mean John and Tia's performance alone goes way beyond my expectations for a shitty temple performance. The only way that they could be worse is if one of the Purple Parrot players doesn't make it past the Throne Room. But like TSM mentioned, even a monkey would do better than these two lost causes.  :roll:  :afro:

I mean, I know the Purple Parrots performed poorly in the temple games. But that doesn't mean they would've done worse in the temple. And it certainly doesn't mean they didn't deserve to go to the temple either. Even if they DID move too slowly, the worst that would've happened was running out of time. Or grabbing the artifact at the last second. But no way would they have done worse than John and Tia. :shock: :roll:

It looks like somebody fixed their vote from a no to yes. :P I don't want to see any "no's" for this run. :afro:

If the Purple Parrots went to the temple, they would've made it close like Great Seal and Kamehameha. This layout was not hard at all. It just featured a really retarded team. As TMH would say, you have to be retarded as John and Tia to think that this is not the worst run ever.  :afro:
Title: Re: Would the Purple Parrots do better? Day 2: The Golden Cricket Cage of Khan
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on December 09, 2014, 08:10:21 PM
Yeah, this is a straight "yes" poll. Anyone who questions that is as retarded as John and Tia were. :afro:

And I agree, I can see this being another Great Seal or Kamehameha type run if Purple had won instead. Though if they had won or tied the last temple game, wouldn't they have gone to the temple with 2 pendants instead? And if that's the case, they would've won. :afro:

And with no surprise all, I think we can agree that the Purple Parrots would've done better than John and Tia in Golden Cricket Cage.  :afro:

Next up is "Elizabeth I's Golden Ship", another temple team who only went through 4 rooms. This time though, they have an excuse due to ending in triple capture. Would Adriana and Mike do better than the Red Jaguars? Summary of the run below:


Title: Re: Would the Purple Parrots do better? Day 3: Elizabeth I's Golden Ship
Post by: The Red Jaguars on December 11, 2014, 03:08:46 PM
Yes for Golden Ship. John and Tia weren't a bad team, but they were so slow in the temple and finishing with 1:30 left on the clock is not really impressive when you only went through 4 rooms. If the Purple Parrots went into the temple, they probably would've finished with a much faster time. Plus, it might've turned out differently if the Purple Parrots weren't obsessed with the direct path. I do think the Purple Parrots would've done better than the Red Jaguars. ;)

Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on December 11, 2014, 03:54:25 PM
Once again with the Fogg Ups: Joe and Gabby, NOT JOHN AND TIA.

And I'm gonna vote no. Frankly, I don't get the hate for Joe and Gabby. Were they really THAT bad of a team? Yes they lost in the quickest time ever, yes they took a direct path. But frankly, the Purple Parrots wouldn't have been that impressive either. Even if they won 2 pendants and didn't get triple captured, they still would've lost in the temple. They would've moved much too slowly, and they probably would've had to take the long way, ala Lucky Pig. So no, this Purple Purple Parrot team would NOT have done a better job. And it would've been yet another loss in the record books for them too. I absolutely REFUSE to support this Purple Parrot team. They will get zero sympathy from me. They were absolutely nothing special or remarkable even pre temple. Absolutely no plausible way would they have done a better job, or won at the temple. No is my vote. :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll:

Am I truly the only person who feels this way? Am I literally the only one who thinks the Purple Parrots would've done just as bad here too?  =/
Title: Re: Would the Purple Parrots do better? Day 3: Elizabeth I's Golden Ship
Post by: AimYourBrent on December 11, 2014, 10:10:43 PM
I voted no because I don't really see any solid evidence for the Parrots to do better. If the arrows had 2 pendants maybe. But I still say no.
Title: Re: Would the Purple Parrots do better? Day 3: Elizabeth I's Golden Ship
Post by: AimYourBrent on December 11, 2014, 10:11:47 PM
That was supposed to say "Parrots" but my iPad corrected it to "arrows".

?? Lol
Title: Re: Would the Purple Parrots do better? Day 3: Elizabeth I's Golden Ship
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on December 11, 2014, 11:08:12 PM
Yeah, your post clearly reads "arrows," when you should've said "parrots." Maybe it's time for you to fix your spellcheck. :lol:

And it looks like nobody else thinks the Parrots would've done a better job either. Really, what kind of proof do we have that the Purple Parrots would've won at this temple? They were completely unimpressive and utterly unremarkable all episode. How do we know they wouldn't have bombed at the temple if they didn't get triple captured? Then again, neither team was impressive in this episode. But I think it's exaggerating AND a huge stretch to say the Purple Parrots would've done an excellent job in the temple. Joe and Gabby were far from a strong team, and had poor planning, sure. But they weren't THAT bad of a team.
Title: Re: Would the Purple Parrots do better? Day 3: Elizabeth I's Golden Ship
Post by: The Red Jaguars on December 11, 2014, 11:16:53 PM
Gabby and Joe weren't a bad team, but I don't think it is very impressive that both players take 1:30 to travel through 4 rooms of the temple. Imagine if Jennifer and Damian had this layout and it ended in triple capture? They would've had more than 2 minutes on the clock. The reason I support the Purple Parrots in this one because I believe that they would've at least moved faster than these two slow pokes. I mean the Cave of Sighs, Wall Climb, Heart Room, and Room of the Golden Idols is not a hard room by any means. I definitely don't hold the triple capture against Gabby and Joe because - 1.) The half-pendant was no were in sight and 2.) The temple guard layout was brutal. If the Purple Parrots made it to the temple, they probably would've had triple capture also. But at least they might've finished with more time. Regardless, it looks like the general consensus is that more people support Gabby and Joe. ;)

Let's move onto our next run - "The Lucky Pig of Amelia Earhart." This is another bottom of the central shaft run from Season 1. Would Annie and Brad do better than Scott and Kristen? Below is a summary of the temple run:


Title: Re: Would the Purple Parrots do better? Day 4: The Lucky Pig of Amelia Earhart
Post by: The Red Jaguars on December 11, 2014, 11:22:17 PM
This one was an easy decision for me. I totally support the Purple Parrots in this episode over the Blue Barracudas. Why? Because Kristen was an utter waste of space and did nothing in this episode. The only reason her team got to the temple is because Scott did all the work. And then she turns around and blows her load in the temple. Hard layout or not, Kristen was a horrendous player. Even 10-year old Annie would've done better than that land whale. And while the layout was long, it really wasn't that hard. It was more because Kristen got lost in every room and moved so slow. Even if Annie got removed one room away, her partner would've had more than 3 seconds to make up time. I do think the Purple Parrots would've done better in the temple, easily. :roll:
Title: Re: Would the Purple Parrots do better? Day 4: The Lucky Pig of Amelia Earhart
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on December 11, 2014, 11:24:23 PM
Another yes here. I don't care how short OR young Annie was, she would've done a million times better than Kristen by a LONG shot. Even if she was met with the same fate of being removed from the temple one room away. Why weren't Scott and Annie (classmates no less) paired up again? :roll:

And land whale? I'm totally stealing that from now on. :lol:
Title: Re: Would the Purple Parrots do better? Day 4: The Lucky Pig of Amelia Earhart
Post by: The Red Jaguars on December 11, 2014, 11:55:08 PM
I actually find it very weird that both Scott and Annie met each other in the temple games. I mean Scott's team originally appeared in Geronimo and Annie's team appeared in Lost Logbooks as moat rejects. And then get a second chance and meet in the temple games? Talk about fate. I wish they would've said something in their personal interviews though. :P

But yeah, no doubt in my mind Annie and Scott would've done better than Kristen and Scott. Annie was pretty smart on the SoK and won her temple game. Short player or not, most of those rooms were easy and she would probably breeze through them. And since they knew each other, they probably would've had great chemistry like Jared and Katie Travis and Elisa or Jessica and Jarrid who were supportive of each other throughout their episodes. ;) Seriously, how could anyone defend that deplorable performance by Kristen in the temple? :afro:
Title: Re: Would the Purple Parrots do better? Day 4: The Lucky Pig of Amelia Earhart
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on December 12, 2014, 12:00:46 AM
I guess it's a small world that they just happened to show up for taping of their episodes on the same day. And moat rejects or not, they should've been paired up from the get go. And they should've been Purple Parrots. Kristen can have Brad, Annie's real partner. I also agree that Annie WAS a strong player all episode. Did you see her in the Bamboo Forest temple run? She did better than chubby Kristen! If Annie got captured in the temple one room away, I can imagine Scott would've had about 50 seconds or so to make up for lost time. Or maybe more time than that. The layout may have been easy, but the path was long. But anything would've been better than a measly three seconds trying to make up for lost time. :roll: And Scott for sure would've been supportive of Annie in the temple. Probably would've made the run that much more exciting. Even if it DID end up being a loss. ;)

A definite yes from me. I don't know if they would have won, but they would have at least made it to the artifact.
Title: Re: Would the Purple Parrots do better? Day 4: The Lucky Pig of Amelia Earhart
Post by: The Red Jaguars on December 12, 2014, 05:48:01 PM
Not to mention, the Lucky Pig layout had a chance to be a solo victory. Had Kristen started in the Cave of Sighs and then remained on the rest of her path, the only guard she would've met would be the Swamp guard. And long path or not, the rooms were all easy except for the Shrine. I think we all agree that Annie and Brad would've done better than fatass Kristen in the temple. :afro:

Next up is "The Golden Chains of Zenobia". This episode featured the Purple Parrot team getting swept by the Orange Iguanas in the temple games. Assuming they made it to the temple, would the Purple Parrots do better than Jennifer and Justin? Summary of the temple run below:


Title: Re: Would the Purple Parrots do better? Day 5: The Golden Chains of Zenobia
Post by: The Red Jaguars on December 12, 2014, 05:50:45 PM
I voted against the Purple Parrots team in this episode. As pathetic as Jennifer and Justin were in the temple, I think the Purple Parrots would've bombed the layout even worse than the Orange Iguanas. I mean look how awful they were in the temple games? They were the first temple team to ever be swept, and they were beaten 8-0 in the last temple game. So the Orange Iguanas going to the temple was preferable in this episode. But man, Justin was a special and lost cause contestant.  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:
Title: Re: Would the Purple Parrots do better? Day 5: The Golden Chains of Zenobia

Also said no here. While the layout was rather tough and confusing, imagine the painfully uncoordinated Purple Parrots in that layout. :shock: The Orange Iguanas were no prize either, but this team wouldn't have done better in the least bit. :roll:
Title: Re: Would the Purple Parrots do better? Day 5: The Golden Chains of Zenobia

I said no. The Parrots got swept in the games. So I don't have much faith in them.
Title: Re: Would the Purple Parrots do better? Day 5: The Golden Chains of Zenobia
Post by: The Red Jaguars on December 13, 2014, 02:14:06 AM
I am going to update this one before I go to bed. We all agree that the Orange Iguanas were the preferred team in the Golden Chains episode. ;)

Next up is "The Golden Jaguar of Atahualpa". This episode was actually pretty close because Kelly and Greg of the Purple Parrots won their individual games, lost their team game to the Blue Barracudas, and then lost the tiebreaker. And the temple run featured the Barracudas reaching the artifact. Here is a summary of the run below:


Title: Re: Would the Purple Parrots do better? Day 6: The Golden Jaguar of Atahualpa
Post by: The Red Jaguars on December 13, 2014, 02:18:19 AM
This one was actually pretty tough. The Purple Parrots were actually pretty good in this episode, but the Blue Barracudas were also a solid team too. Even though I am not a fan of a team that makes a comeback in the team game and win the tiebreaker, both teams were neck and neck all day. Chris and Tracy were a good team in the temple despite Chris' detour to the Heart Room. Even though I believe that the Purple Parrots might've won, I am not going to short change the Blue Barracudas for their performance. So I will support the Barracudas in this one. ;)
Title: Re: Would the Purple Parrots do better? Day 6: The Golden Jaguar of Atahualpa
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on December 13, 2014, 02:19:47 AM
Also voted no. The Purple Parrots really weren't that great in the temple games. Greg was awesome, but Kelly kind of sucked. And she REALLY blew it in the third temple game. It was like she was not even trying at all. Besides, Chris and Tracy did just fine in the temple, despite their mistakes. So no, I don't support this Purple Parrot team in the least. Not impressive at all. :roll:

Post by: The Red Jaguars on December 13, 2014, 02:22:43 AM
Even though I said I wasn't going to cover the wins where the Purple Parrots were the losing temple team, I actually changed my mind. Because truth be told, there are a few wins that they would've done better or deserved better over other teams. Case in point, a certain win tomorrow where the Silver Snakes won.  :afro:
Title: Re: Would the Purple Parrots do better? Day 6: The Golden Jaguar of Atahualpa
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on December 13, 2014, 02:25:24 AM
But you're supposed to cover every single Purple Parrot temple game loss. Isn't that kind of the point of this thread? =/

And yeah, tomorrow is Silk Ladder. Now THAT should've been the first Purple Parrots win.
Title: Re: Would the Purple Parrots do better? Day 6: The Golden Jaguar of Atahualpa
Post by: The Red Jaguars on December 14, 2014, 01:42:44 AM
I think I will do the wins last. The original premise was to cover all the temple losses, so I am going to follow that plan. ;) Regardless, it seems that we all agree that the Blue Barracudas deserved their temple appearance in Golden Jaguar.  :mrblue:

Now we skip ahead to "The Crown of Queen Nzinga". The first Purple Parrots loss in Season 2. In this run, Ben and Renee had their temple run cut short with a lot of time with 1:07 remaining. Would Tracy and Robbie do better than the Red Jaguars? Temple summary below:


Title: Re: Would the Purple Parrots do better? Day 7: The Crown of Queen Nzinga
Post by: The Red Jaguars on December 14, 2014, 01:46:51 AM
I support the Purple Parrots in this episode. Unlike Golden Ship, Ben and Renee had no excuse for their triple capture. They were slow and Renee screwed up when she had the option of finding the obvious half-pendant or plowing through the wall. She chose neither option and had the temple run end. And this looked like an easy layout too. Even though the Purple Parrots were kind of lackluster in this episode, at least they would've had a better outcome than the Red Jaguars. At least Gabby and Joe had an excuse for their triple capture in Golden Ship even though I supported that Purple Parrots team too. I hate Ben and Renee with every fiber in my body. :evil:

Next up is 'The Golden Goblet of Attila the Hun". In this episode, the Purple Parrots lost to the Red Jaguars in a tiebreaker. Then the temple run featured Rachelle using all three minutes in the temple without reaching the artifact. Would Jill and Brett do better than the Red Jaguars? Summary of the layout below:


Title: Re: Would the Purple Parrots do better? Day 8: The Golden Goblet of Attila the Hun
Post by: The Red Jaguars on December 15, 2014, 12:28:03 AM
This might not be a popular opinion, but I support the Purple Parrot team in this episode. They were pretty close with the Red Jaguars all day and the final outcome came down to a tiebreaker. As for the temple run, I felt that Rachelle had too much trouble and moved way too slow even if it was a long layout. I am not saying she is as bad as Kristen from Lucky Pig, but she stalled too much in almost every room she entered. If the Purple Parrots made it to the temple, I predict that they would've moved faster and might've reached the Golden Goblet if they took a slightly shorter path (like starting in Medusa's Lair). I don't think they would've won because that layout was pretty hard.

Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on December 15, 2014, 12:45:43 AM
Am I the only one voting no here? =/

No, they would NOT have done a better job. Sure, the Red Jaguars sucked, but the Purple Parrots were a terrible team as well. Did you see those temple games? It was painful to watch. The Purple Parrots were an even worse team, and Jill had no enthusiasm whatsoever. Imagine them in the temple? They would've failed miserably. Sure, Rachelle sucked, but the Purple Parrots would've had an epic fail here as well. They wouldn't have made it anywhere near the artifact. They would've moved extremely slow and would not have tried at all. No, they would not have done a better job.
Title: Re: Would the Purple Parrots do better? Day 8: The Golden Goblet of Attila the Hun

I voted no just because of the difficulty of the layout.

Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on December 15, 2014, 02:07:08 AM
Yeah, no way was anyone gonna win with that layout. Even if either team had taken more direct routes, it still would've been a loss. Regardless, the Purple Parrots were just a terrible team all episode. They barely scraped by each round, performed embarrassingly bad in the temple games, and Jill looked like she didn't want to be there. If you're gonna look like you don't want to be on the show, then don't expect me to take you seriously. If the Purple Parrots had made it to the temple instead, they would've performed very badly. They would've moved much too slowly, and wouldn't have made it anywhere near the artifact. Truth be told, neither team in this episode deserved to go the temple. Which is why this Purple Parrot team gets zero support from me. This whole episode in general was just bad. :roll:

Post by: The Red Jaguars on December 15, 2014, 02:38:56 PM
Was this the episode with the Purple Parrot girl who had no enthusiasm at all? I can never remember that if she is from this episode or Nzinga. I do remember her sucking in her temple game and it looked like she wasn't even trying. If she went into the temple, it is possible that she does a WORSE job than Rachelle. I think I am going to watch the episode again and judge the Purple Parrot team.Since I hardly remember this episode all. When I come back later, I will decide whether to keep my vote or not?

Also, I do think this layout could've been won if you had a fast team like Lucky Medallion or Applewood Amulet. The teams had to blaze through the temple and take all the shortest paths possible. Well, maybe not a win but a failed escape at best.

For the time being, I am keeping my vote in favor of the Parrots for Attila the Hun. In the future though, I might change it even though I think both teams were about on the same level talent wise. So it looks like we are undecided whether the Purple Parrots should go to the temple or not in this episode!

Next up is "The Priceless Portrait of the Polynesian Girl".  :mrsilver: This episode featured two moat rejects from earlier episodes facing it off in the temple games. Plus, Janet and Chris of the Purple Parrots were the team eliminated at the moat in Empress Theodora and were given a second chance. In the temple, the Silver Snakes were close to bringing out a bottom of the central shaft artifact but failed. Would Janet and Chris do better than Jim and Kristen? Temple layout diagram below:

I voted against the Purple Parrots in Polynesian Girl. Janet and Chris were actually a pretty good team and I am glad that the producers gave them a second chance after getting robbed in Empress Theodora. But Jim and Kristen were also a strong team too and deserved their temple appearance. Even though they should've won, they were a strong team and came the closest to a bottom of the central shaft win! If they reversed player orders, they would've won! As I mentioned I liked the Purple Parrots in this episode and they might've won, but at the end of the day Kristen and Jim were a great team too and they had an equal chance of being successful too. ;)

Voted no. Jim and Kristen were the stronger team, and the Parrots completely bombed the last temple game.

EDIT: Also, you're not gonna break the tie for the Golden Goblet poll?

Yeah, Janet and Chris were from Applewood Amulet, NOT Empress Theodora. You put that down twice. I know they were both previous episode rejects, but losing at the moat and losing at the steps are two completely different things. ;)

I definitely meant Emiliano Zapata, not Purple Robe. :oops: Not only that, but it seems that I missed Dolley Madison also.  I am going to cover that next. Even though Brent hasn't voted yet, I will let him voice his opinion on Polynesian Girl next time he comes in. ;) And we all agree that Jim and Kristen deserve their temple appearance.  :mrsilver:

Next up is "The Bonnet of Dolley Madison". In this run, Ashlie and Matt managed to grab the artifact but failed to escape with it because of some glaring mistakes. Would Jessica and Dwayne do better than the Purple Parrots? Summary of run below:

Post by: The Red Jaguars on December 16, 2014, 11:10:06 PM
I voted no for the Purple Parrots in Dolley Madison. Even though the temple run was riddled with mistakes, Ashlie and Matt were a strong team all day and they deserved their temple appearance. After all, they swept the Purple Parrots in the temple games. Even inside the temple they were a strong team, but Ashlie's mistake in the Dark Forest cost them. But like Jim and Kristen, they were one of those teams that were strong and would've won if they switched player orders. So I think the Orange Iguanas deserved their temple appearance during this run. ;)

It looks like we agree that the Purple Parrots in Dolley Madison did not deserve to go to the temple. ;)

Next up is probably the most tragic Purple Parrot temple team. Levi and Candace took the Green Monkeys down to the tiebreaker, but lost on the easiest question ever. The Green Monkeys then had a lot of trouble in the temple and couldn't get past the bottom floor with a very tough layout. Would Zac's younger brother Levi and Candace do better than Noelle and Pat?

I support the Purple Parrots in this episode EASILY. Noelle and Pat were one of the most undeserving teams in the temple and one of the worst teams in Season 3 only beaten by Snow Cone. :roll: The Green Monkeys literally couldn't even make it past the bottom floor. -_______- The Purple Parrots would've done much better than these two losers. And I know I can count on Zac's younger bro to meet my expectations too!  :mrpurple: I predict they would've made it the Shrine at least, but would've lost because the layout was cruel. The Green Monkeys had no right to be in the temple. After Golden Cricket Cage, this is the second biggest time I wanted to see the Purple Parrots in the temple!

Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on December 19, 2014, 01:36:51 AM
Seriously, WHO THE HELL could ever defend Noelle and Pat? They were a terrible team and did NOT deserve to go to the temple. :roll: First of all, they barely scraped by each episode. Second of all, they sucked at their temple games. Just look at Pat in his temple game for crying out loud. He literally was not even trying in the trampoline game he played. They only got to the temple because of the tiebreaker question. So fucking what if Noelle got to the buzzer first? That's irrelevant to me. And then they spend the whole temple run walking through every room and not trying at all. :roll:

And why was Levi and his partner Candace better? They were second in the moat, swept the steps, KICKED ASS in their temple games. Only to completely blow it in the tiebreaker. For fuck sakes, are you trying to convince me they would've done a WORSE job in the temple? They wouldn't have gotten past the bottom floor either? They would've dwaddled through every single room in the temple? And don't give me that "well, you just hate Pat and Noelle because Levi didn't make it to the temple." :roll: We do not just hate the run because of that. People need to stop assuming that. You are seriously an idiot to think the Purple Parrots in this episode would've done a worse job in the temple. It's stupid to defend Noelle and Pat. They were a terrible team and did not AT ALL deserve to go to the temple. Period. End of story. And I can't believe people actually feel sorry for that team. That's just a mystery to me. That's fucking insane. Defend Noelle and Pat, your opinions are irrelevant. Case closed. :roll:

Well said! I can't believe anyone would ever think these two are a deserving team. I am supporting the Purple Parrots in this episode not because Zac's brother was on this team but since they were a strong team all day like you mentioned. Levi being Zac's younger brother is just the icing on top. ;) Pat and Noelle on the other hand scraped by all day. Didn't an old member here always criticize us for bashing Noelle and Pat? Maybe it was kamehameha or outer space? Either way, I can guarantee you that the Purple Parrots would've done than the Green Monkeys, no questions asked. I could go as far as to say they would've made it one room away! Too bad Candace lost her individual game as it went down to the wire and she was so close. Long story short, the Purple Parrots would've done a much better job than the Green Monkeys. After Golden Cricket Cage, I support this Purple Parrots team the most. ;)
Title: Re: Would the Purple Parrots do better? Day 11: The Marble Armrest of Xerxes
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on December 19, 2014, 04:49:35 PM
I believe it was TAW who used to criticize us for bashing Noelle and Pat. And I believe GMW used to do the same. Hell she used to bash us for criticizing the Snow Cone team too. :shock: But yeah, Noelle and Pat were a mediocre team the entire way through. Noelle just lucked into her temple game win, Pat wasn't even trying, and they were just embarrassing to watch in the team game. I mean, it's true that their layout was impossible and winnable. But there's no doubt in my mind that Levi and Candace would've done a MUCH better job. Especially since they were second in the moat and swept the steps like I mentioned above. But I guess some people like to think that "if Levi and Candace won instead, then the results would be the same thing." So by that logic, Candace would've spent a minute dangling from a rope, walking through every room. And Levi would've spent a whole temple run trying to climb up a slide? Though the slide WAS slicked pretty much. So it's pretty obvious which team I support here. And that's naturally, Levi and Candace. Zac's brother owns, enough said. ;)
Title: Re: Would the Purple Parrots do better? Day 11: The Marble Armrest of Xerxes
Post by: The Silver Monkey on December 19, 2014, 10:50:25 PM
An emphatic YES for this one. Noelle and Pat didn't deserve to go into the temple one bit. They just lucked into getting the easiest tiebreaker question of all time. So easy that Jon and Tia could even get it right! :roll:

John and Tia definitely would've gotten that tiebreaker question right. I mean, didn't Kirk just give away the answer in the episode title just two seconds ago? And like Stone Marker, I would also go as far as saying Candace and Levi probably would've made it one room away. It probably would've been a Discarded Seal type ending, where the team does everything right, but still loses. Even if Zac and Levi were NOT related, or if there were no Zac interview, I'd still think the Purple Parrots should've won here. :afro:

Moving on, I don't think anyone out there would support the Green Monkeys in Xerxes. Just like TSM and Paintbrush said, even John and Tia would've gotten that tiebreaker question correct. So everyone unanimously supports Zac and Levi in this episode.  ;)

Next up is "The Smashed Printing Plate of Frederick Douglass". In this episode, the Red Jaguars swept the Purple Parrots in the temple games. Despite the one-sided results, Jason of the Red Jaguars cheated not only once but almost twice! Inside the temple, Jason and Dana had a lot of difficulty with their layout with too many mistakes. Would Sharon and Gary do better than the Red Jaguars in this episode? Summary of the temple run below.


Title: Re: Would the Purple Parrots do better? Day 12: The Smashed Printing Plate
Post by: The Red Jaguars on December 20, 2014, 05:09:11 PM
I support the Purple Parrots in the temple games despite them getting dominated in the temple games. Actually, they weren't dominated they lost to a pair of cheaters! Jason cheated in possibly two of the temple games. In the first temple game, Jason should've been made to wait until his opponent got back on the horse in order to throw a newspaper. And in the team game, he tries cheating by jumping over a row of poles. In the temple run, Jason and Dana did a horrible job. Jason was an awful frontrunner and he got lost in nearly every room and tried backtracking when he didn't know where to go. Plus, he missed a vital shortcut in the Dark Forest. Dana was a lost cause herself because she stilled managed to f*** up with her little time in the temple. Overall, the Red Jaguars were an awful team that bombed this temple run. And the temple run was even hard because the Red Jaguars in Queen Boadicea had an even tougher layout and they reached their artifact! Overall, I easily support the Purple Parrots in this episode and isn't even close. They would've done better than Dana and Jason. Unlike Zenobia, the Purple Parrots lost to a pair of cheaters. So my vote is an easy yes. :roll:
Title: Re: Would the Purple Parrots do better? Day 12: The Smashed Printing Plate

Another easy yes here. I don't care if the Parrots were destroyed in the temple games, they would've done MUCH better than fucking Jason and Dana here. Jason was a lost cause, (I can't believe people defend him), and Dana was a hosebeast. And no I do not just hate Jason and Dana just because of the cheating in the temple games. They could've won their temple games fair and square and I would still hate them. The Purple Parrots also get my support here. So it's definitely a yes from me too. :roll:

Post by: The Red Jaguars on December 21, 2014, 01:48:09 AM
I wouldn't even say that the Purple Parrots were dominated in the temple games either. First off, I felt that it was an unfair advantage for Jason to be able to throw papers while his opponent fell off the horse. Second, the last temple game was really close until Dana beat Sharon by one pole. The temple games were not like Golden Chains or Empress Eugenie where the Purple Parrots got dominated. I hated this Red Jaguars team since day one and I can't believe anyone would defend Jason. I mean it is freakin Jason! The kid who backtracked from the Room of the Ancient Warriors because he didn't know where to go. What's next? Defending Nicholas from Madame Tussaud for moving so slow in the temple? :afro:

Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on December 21, 2014, 01:56:50 AM
Too late, people already defend Nicholas. :afro: And you're right too, Jason DOES NOT deserve to be defended. But just because "oh, he assembled the monkey in quick time!" and "oh, me backtracked for two seconds!" boom, that automatically makes him an amazing player. Plus, didn't someone compare Jason to Tiffani once? Where Jason backtracks to the Chamber, just because ONE door doesn't open up. Yet Tiffani just tries the furthest back armor, all while staying in the same room. Remind me again how both those scenarios are the same again? I swear, people are just pulling random excuses out of their asses just to defend Jason. Both him and Dana were terrible player, and they DID NOT deserve to go to the temple. Even if it weren't for the cheating, I would still hate them. People need to stop assuming otherwise. I also agree that the Parrots weren't actually destroyed in the temple games. Since Jason cheated in 2/3 of his temple games. Regardless, should've been the Purple Parrots. :afro:

Post by: The Red Jaguars on December 21, 2014, 02:02:15 AM
Yeah, they felt that Jason didn't get all the criticism he deserves or something like that. :afro: But I don't see how anyone could fine anything redeemable about him. Remind me again how Tiffani and Jason were alike? I am pretty sure that Tiffani didn't get turned around once. Sure, she tried all of the armors in the Room of the Ancient Warriors when she didn't need to. So did a lot of Season 3 contestants like Jeremy from War Fan. Does that make Jeremy on Jason's level? :afro: Tiffani was a solid contestant and did a lot of stuff better than Jason - made it back to the platform, didn't get turned around, and used the Dark Forest shortcut. Defending Jason and Dana is one of the most pathetic defenses I have ever seen here. Although the Bifocal Monocle one still tops it though. :afro:
Title: Re: Would the Purple Parrots do better? Day 12: The Smashed Printing Plate
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on December 21, 2014, 02:26:23 AM
Exactly. Tiffani never got turned around at all. The only "backtracking" she even did was retrying the back most armor, which DID open the door to the Shrine. What does Jason do? Backtracks back to the chamber for NO reason, all because one armor wouldn't open up the door. I swear, there were some points where I could actually see why Dana was shouting at him. So Jason and Tiffani were not similar or comparable in the least bit. And assembling the monkey in quick time is completely irrelevant to me. Mike from Thornwood Gavel assembled the monkey literally, in record time. But do you see anyone praising him for it? No, you don't. Just because someone assembles the monkey in respectable time, doesn't automatically mean you're a great player. Jason was a lost cause, no matter what way you slice it. :afro:

I am enjoying the discussions we are having in this topic, so I want to move onto the next run. I think we can agree that the Purple Parrots deserved to go to the temple over Jason and Dana in Smashed Printing Plate. :afro:

Next up is "The Missing Portrait of Hans Holbein". This episode featured another temple game sweep of the Purple Parrots, this time by the Barracudas. Inside the temple, Keith and Rachel struggled with a very tough layout they required them to enter every room. They were still an average team despite the temple loss. Would Danielle and James do better than the Blue Barrucadas in the temple? Temple run summary below:

Post by: The Red Jaguars on December 22, 2014, 01:05:04 AM
I voted against the Purple Parrots in Missing Portrait. They were really no competition for the Blue Barracudas in this episode. Keith and Rachel were first in the moat, while the Purple Parrots were last. And the Blue Barracudas swept the temple games. So it was clear that the Barracudas were a stronger team than the Purple Parrots. Keith and Rachel did a pretty good job with one of the toughest temple layouts ever. If the Purple Parrots had this layout, they probably would've made less progress. In the end, the Blue Barracudas deserved their temple appearance and were the clear cut stronger team. Although I do think that Rachel and Keith should've made it a little farther in the temple if only they moved a little faster. ;)

Post by: The Red Jaguars on December 22, 2014, 01:10:59 AM
I forgot how many game losers there were for the Purple Parrots in Season 3. We breezed by Season 2 because there were only 4 Purple Parrot losing teams where their opponents lost in the temple. For Season 3, we still have Enormous Feather, Lost Taj Mahal Turban, Madame Tussaud, Lily-Crested Crown, and Good-Luck Watch. Although some of those will be interesting to rank. ;)

And yeah, the Purple Parrots were clearly the worse of the two teams in this episode. Unlike in Smashed Printing Plate where they also got swept, Keith and Rachel in Hans Holbein were actually a pretty strong team all day. And they made it far in the temple considering their layout.   They are much better than Jason and Dana at least.  :afro:

Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on December 22, 2014, 01:18:37 AM
Yeah, the Purple Parrots had A LOT of embarrassing temple game losses in Season 3. I mean, three of them were sweeps for crying out loud. :shock: The only episodes that are wins were Sir Gawain and Lost Hornpipe. But at least those respective teams were strong and deserved their temple appearances. For the losses, almost every single one should've had Purple winning. :afro:

And yeah, the Parrots in Hans Holbein got their asses whopped in these temple games. Plus, they barely scraped by all episode, like you said. Even though Rachel and Keith were an average team in the temple, they were a lot stronger pre temple. They weren't that great in the temple, but they definitely deserved to win over the Purple Parrots. And at least they didn't cheat in their temple games either. ;)

And it looks like the Blue Barracudas deserve their temple appearance in Hans Holbein! :mrblue:

Next up is "The Enormous Feather of the Me Linh". In this episode, the Purple Parrots lost a 1-1 tiebreaker to the Purple Parrots. Despite the close temple games, the Purple Parrots were pretty dominant pre-temple round where they finished first in the moat, first at the Steps, and won their team game before losing the tiebreaker. In the temple, the Orange Iguanas managed to reach the Enormous Feather but the temple run is not as successful as it seems. Karisa had a lot of time to bring the artifact out but moves super slow and gets lost in every room. This run should've been a temple win. Would Molly and Joey do better than the Orange Iguanas in this episode?

Post by: The Red Jaguars on December 23, 2014, 12:54:42 AM
A big YES for the Purple Parrots in this episode. The Orange Iguanas were an undeserving team all day, and Karisa failed as a second runner in the temple. I don't care if Karisa and David reached their artifact, it was a horrible and pathetic effort. It is nothing like Polynesian Girl or Golden Jaguar where both players tried hard in the temple. In Enormous Feather, David was a great frontrunner but Karisa was a lost cause and horrible player. She got lost in every room (even the Quicksand Bog :roll: ) and was so damn slow. The Purple Parrots were actually a pretty strong team before the temple too even though they only won their only pendant in the team game. They sure would've done a hell of a lot better than Karisa in this episode. -___________- I EASILY support the Parrots in this episode.  ;)  :mrpurple:

OF COURSE I support this Purple Parrot team in the temple. :roll: David and Karisa barely scraped by all episode, all while the Purple Parrots dominated until yet again, they choked at the tiebreaker. And don't get me started on the fucking temple run either. Outer space is a retard for thinking they deserved to go to the temple. :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll: All because "Oh noes! The Purple Parrots only won the third temple game!" Come on now, Karisa was a terrible player. That's enough proof right there THAT THEY DID NOT DESERVE TO GO TO THE TEMPLE!!!! :roll:

And I agree, this has to be the worst failed escape run on the show. It was so painful to watch the second Karisa entered the temple. She had a path cleared all the way to the Quicksand Bog and it takes her a minute just to get there. :x If she was going to be this awful, I'd rather watch this run end in triple capture before seeing her grab the artifact. One of the most frustrating losses of Season 3. F*** you Karisa!  :x  :x  :x  :x  :x  :x

But it doesn't even deserve that either. What really kills it for me is outer space thinking they deserved to go the temple. On the grounds that "the Purple Parrots were a bad team for only winning the third game." Even if that's true, one can only assume that the Purple Parrots wouldn't have stood there like idiots in the Quicksand Bog. Karisa was a terrible player, and she doesn't even RUN when she grabs the feather. This definitely should've had Purple Parrots going to the temple. Fuck you Karisa, fuck you with 20 cactus's. :x :afro:

And yes Karisa deserves the cactus comment. ;)

This is one of the very few temple runs that made me legit pissed when it ended. I mean I know it is just a game show, but Karisa had a VERY favorable path and she blew it. There is nothing good about her one bit either. Poor David had to get paired up with one of the most retarded players of Season 3. Even Kirk Fogg was getting pissed with Karisa, and he rarely did that in Season 3. This episode is one of the many reasons why I hate the Orange Iguanas because they had such terrible runs like this. Out of all the Orange/Purple runs, I wanted to see this Purple Parrot team advance the most. They were the clear cut better team and it isn't even close. :roll:

Also, this is one of the many reasons why I never took outer space seriously. He always blasted Jeremy and Elise from War Fan for scraping by their episode but defends Karisa and David? And the Enormous Feather team progressed the EXACT same way as War Fan's temple team too. And Jeremy and Elise were x10 better than the Orange Iguanas even with their production error.

And outer space was always full of crap. I mean, he disses Jeremy and Elise for barely scraping by, yet Karisa and David get defended? I mean, I know we all have our opinions and all, but then there's just ridiculous. :roll:

We all agree that the Purple Parrots deserved to go to the temple over retarded Karisa and the Orange Iguanas. :afro:

Next up is "The Lily-Crested Crown of Clovis I". It was another Orange/Purple episode with Orange winning in a close match-up with a final score of 2-1.5. The temple run featured Katie having trouble in most of the rooms she entered, with her most notable moment where she spent over a minute in the Chamber. By the time she was taken out, Judge had no prayer of winning. But he was a pretty slow and clueless second runner too. Would Erika and Jeremy do better than the Orange Iguanas in the temple? Summary of layout below:

Post by: The Red Jaguars on December 26, 2014, 10:48:28 PM
I support the Purple Parrots in this episode. Despite the Orange Iguanas entering the temple with 2 Pendants, they weren't that good of a team at all. The temple game score was even close with the end result being 2-1.5! So it's not like it was domination like Hans Holbein. An the Orange Iguanas performed poorly in the temple too. Katie really blew her load when she spent over a minute in the Chamber, a room where no other contestant ever had trouble. At least Tony from Stone Head sort of has an excuse for spending too long in his room. And she just had too much trouble after the Chamber too. Judge was a pathetic second runner also. He backtracked for no reason when he had a clear path to the Shrine and moved so slow. The Purple Parrots would not have messed up like these two. This layout is exactly like Gwalior, so the Orange Iguanas have no excuse for their poor performance.

Damn, I have been posting so much in the temple games forum that I forgot about this topic. :o Either way, we can all agree that we support the Purple Parrots in Lily-Crested Crown. ;)

Next up is "The Melted Head of Madame Tussaud". In this episode, the Purple Parrots lost to the Orange Iguanas in a close temple games match-up. Inside the temple, Nicholas had a lot of trouble as he spend almost all of his time in the temple just getting up the central shaft. Jennifer, who gets criticized for shouting, simply did not have enough time to make up for his hesitations. Would the Purple Parrots do better than the Orange Iguanas? Layout below:

This was a hard decision for me. I supported the Orange Iguanas though and it is all because of Jennifer. She was the star of her episode all day. She won her temple game against the MALE Purple Parrot player and won the team game too. Nicholas was a lost cause in the temple and she had every right to shout at him. He spent way too long in the central shaft where other teams like Pirate Captain and Sforza completed them much faster. So I can totally see why she was shouting at him. If she went into the temple first, I think that this temple run would've been successful as she seemed both smarter and faster than Nicholas. I think the Purple Parrots would've done better than Nicholas for sure. But Jennifer was a strong player and I think she would've also given her team a chance at victory. So I do support the Iguanas in this one. ;)

No. Big fat no. The Purple Parrots were a terrible team all episode. Just barely crossed the moat, just barely advanced from the steps, and they were absolutely terrible in the temple games. Can you imagine this team in the temple? They would've failed miserably. This was an easy choice for me. This team was absolutely pathetic. So no, I don't support this team in the slightest. :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:

And isn't Lost Taj Mahal Turban supposed to come next?

Dang, Taj Mahal Turban should've been the next one. :oops: No worries, I will cover that tomorrow. ;) After this one and Taj Mahal Turban, I think Good-Luck Watch is the last one for Purple Parrot losses. :o

As for this episode, the Purple Parrots were pathetic. Nicholas and Jennifer were first in the moat and SoK, and they did really good in the temple games too. I actually watched this episode the other day too. :mrorange: I might actually review this episode next. I never understood the hate this episode gets. It was pretty entertaining from start to finish. I do find the temple run annoying and frustrating, all thanks to Nicholas of course. He really ruined the ending of this otherwise good episode. :?

Plus, Jennifer beat A BOY in her temple game, the rock pushing one. And the Purple Parrots just barely scraped by all episode by being 4th in the moat and 2nd in the Steps. The Orange Iguanas were much more dominant, and this is one of the rare Orange/Purple episodes where the Orange Iguanas deserved to go to the temple. Can't wait for your rewrite of the episode too. The hate it gets is undeserved.

And I know I'm late to the game on this, but the Purple Parrot boy from Lily Crested Crown was named Stephen, not Jeremy. You named those Purple Parrots after the Silk Ladder team. :lol: Speaking of the latter episode, that will be the first "win" we cover I believe.

And we all agree that Jennifer and Nicholas deserved to go to the temple over the Purple Parrots. ;)

Next up is the run I skipped over - "The Lost Taj Mahal Turban of Aurangzeb". In this episode, the Purple Parrots did pretty good before the temple including winning 1st in the moat and 1st in the SoK (Green was 4th and 2nd respectively). Inside the temple, Chrystine and Dean's run in triple capture after they faced a long layout where all three guards were forced. It didn't help that the team missed the obvious half-pendant either. Would Jennifer and Chad do better than the Green Monkeys? Summary of run below:

I actually support the Purple Parrots in this episode. They looked like a pretty strong team in this episode, as evident on how they were first in the moat and SoK. I feel that they would've fared better in the temple too. First off, I felt Dean was too slow and a little clueless as a frontrunner. There were some rooms where I felt that he took too much time, like the Chamber and Ancient Warriors. Second, the triple capture outcome should not have happened. Even though Chrystine did try to look for the half-pendant, she still should've found it. I feel that if the Purple Parrots had entered the temple, they would've avoided triple capture and probably grabbed the Taj Mahal Turban. And I am not saying that Dean and Chrystine were an undeserving or bad team. I don't have a problem with them at all and their triple capture was probably the least offensive one on the show. But between the two teams, I felt that the Purple Parrots would've done better. It is actually a very close call, but in the end this one can go either way for me. ;)

No. I voted a big fat fucking no. :roll: First of all, this Purple Parrot team may have been bad ass pre temple, but they weren't THAT great. Did Dean and Chrystine really bomb their temple layout THAT much? That layout was hard, the Purple Parrots would've bombed that layout too. How do we know THEY wouldn't have passed up the half pendant? How do we know THEY wouldn't have moved slowly either? That triple capture was not their fault, AT ALL. Look where that half pendant was. It was tacked on WAY too high. Those Purple Parrots would've missed that too. The Purple Parrots would've done a terrible job in the temple, and the results would've been, the same thing. They would've been triple captured too. I expect this vote to be unanimous. This was the easiest vote next to Cricket Cage. This Purple Parrot team was not impressive at all, and they deserved to lose the temple games. They only won their first temple game, that's bad in my opinion. So no, this team gets zero support for me and I thought Dean and Chrystine deserved their temple appearance. Just because a team dominates, doesn't mean they're strong. Easy vote for me, easiest decision ever. It's a no for me. :roll:

This layout reminds me of Golden Ship when it comes to the triple capture. The temple guard layout was unfair and cheap, and the half-pendant location was bullshit. I mean why were Chrystine and Dean forced to encounter every single guard? No other triple capture was like that. If a team has 1.5 Pendants, they should have one guard that avoidable. But yeah, I actually agree with your reasoning. I haven't seen the full episode in a long time and I might rewatch the temple games again to see how the Purple Parrots perform. I also want to hear what other people think about these two teams too. ;)

I might change my vote to the Green Moneys, which was my first gut feeling. I want to see what other people vote. ;)

Also, look at Heather and Tony from Stone Head. They dominated almost every single round, and then failed miserably in the temple. Despite the Purple Parrots in Lost Taj Mahal Turban dominating pre temple games, they could've very well have fallen apart in the temple. Same goes for teams like Mysterious Manuscript and Dried Ear of Corn. Teams who kicked ass pre temple, but then completely fell apart in the temple. And in those episodes, you can't blame a hard layout. They all made avoidable mistakes that shouldn't have happened to begin with. Plus, Lost Taj Mahal Turban was A LOT like Mystical Spellbook. Tough layouts where there was very little a team could do about it. Plus, the producers really need to learn that tacking up a half pendant as high as possible is NOT going to be en effective solution. Plus, Chrystine was fast too. Almost as good as Katie from Mystical Spellbook even. This was one of those layouts where a team was doomed from the start. Granted, I didn't find either team impressive in this episode, but the Green Monkeys dominated more in the temple games. And I thought they deserved their temple appearance more. ;)

Also, Oracle Bowl and Lost Hammer are teams that dominated before the temple run but sucked in the temple. We need to make a full list of these temple teams. :lol: But yeah, I never had a problem with the Green Monkeys outcome in Taj Mahal Turban. ;) I mean they had little time on the clock left and the temple guard layout was so unfair. There was no way to avoid any of the guards! And you're right about the half-pendant location too, it was actually pretty far out of view. In Sforza, Asher found the half-pendant right above the Headless Kings door. In Robert the Bruce, the half-pendant was right next to the King's Storeroom door. And yet Jeremy still missed it. :roll: The Taj Mahal Turban layout was one of those layouts that no team would really win, like Mystical Spellbook. Dean and Chrystine fared pretty well, but I felt that Dean could've done better in certain rooms. Other than that, the temple guard layout sucked and this run reminds me a lot like Golden Ship. But Golden Ship's temple guard layout was slightly more cheap IMO. ;)

Yeah, we really need to start a topic like that. But in the Heart Room of course. ;) Also, this triple capture was done in the shortest time ever. And it was the last ever triple capture. Yet the Golden Ship team got the first ever triple capture, and it was done in the quickest time. :lol: Not to mention, the Green Monkeys only had two triple captures on the whole show, this one and Golden Spider Web. Both clocked in with under 30 seconds left on the clock, and had already hopeless layouts to begin with. Unlike Golden Spider Web though, this team truly had a tough layout, and the half pendant was in an obscure location. And they had a MUCH harder layout. If the Purple Parrots ever got triple captured and moved fast, they would've had much more time left on the clock. Other than that, this temple run definitely wasn't bad at all. Dean was pretty hesitant, but fortunately Chrystine did a much better job. ;)

I want to finish this topic up since we only have this run and Good-Luck Watch to finish. So anyone not vote support the Green Monkeys or Purple Parrots in Lost Taj Mahal Turban? I know it is not an exciting or memorable episode, but you can just vote whether you believe the Parrots would do a better job than the Monkeys. ;)

I really want to continue this thread. There is only one run left to cover. I am going to change my vote for a "No" for Lost Taj Mahal Turban. At the end of the day, I can't see how the Purple Parrots would've done better. Dean and Chrystine were not a bad team at all after I recently rewatched this episode. In fact, Chrystine actually did a good job in the temple. And the half-pendant passing doesn't bother me either. At least it's not like Jeremy from Robert the Bruce. :afro:

To end this topic, we will move onto the Good-Luck Watch.  :mrgreen: In their very last temple game appearance, the Purple Parrots faced a power-house Green Monkeys team. The temple run featured a failed escape run where the team grabbed a bottom of the central shaft artifact. While this was an impressive feat, this layout should've been a win because it was very favorable towards the team. Unfortunately, it didn't happen because Janeen was way too hesitant and slow in the temple. Would Courtney and Nate do better than the Green Monkeys in this episode? Diagram of the temple run below:

Post by: The Red Jaguars on March 02, 2015, 11:44:39 PM
I voted against the Purple Parrots in Good-Luck Watch. They were simply no match for Janeen and Jay. Even though the Green Monkeys scraped by the moat, they turned around and dominated the other rounds. Jay especially was a beast and much more talented player than any of the players during this day. The temple run disappoints me because the Green Monkeys should've won, but I am not confident that the Purple Parrots would've done better. Jay and Janeen were definitely the clear cut better team in this episode, which is why I support them over  the Parrots. Although Janeen blew this run big time. Even if she went in second, they still would've lost because she was too slow. -_-

Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on March 03, 2015, 04:36:23 PM
Yeah, I also do not support this Purple Parrot team. They scraped by even worse than Jay and Janeen did, and they were absolutely terrible in the temple games. As disappointing as Janeen's temple appearance was, her and Jay definitely deserved to go to the temple over the Purple Parrots here. So it's another no from me.

Also, I love how three different topics here now all cover Good Luck Watch. :lol: I need to take a screencap of that. :afro:

Plus, you never actually covered Good-Luck Watch in the failed escape run yet either. It will be a while for that to happen since that is one of the last runs we need to rate. :P But yeah, the Green Monkeys were the better team in this episode. The only round they scraped by was the moat. But that was because Janeen was awful and Jay had to haul ass to cross it. But they were dominant in every other round. The temple run was sort of a letdown in my book. I mean Janeen was way too slow and hesitant. Luckily, Jay saved this run from being another disaster. If the Purple Parrots had this layout, they might've had a chance to win if they were as talented as Lacey and Asher. I think Lacey and Asher could even win the Good-Luck Watch layout. It was pretty easy compared to runs like Red Sash and Queen Boadicea. ;)

Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on March 04, 2015, 03:35:50 PM
Yeah, I agree. Not to mention, the Purple Parrots were just painfully uncoordinated in the temple games. Courtney was especially bad too, in like every round. If her and Nate had made it to the temple instead, I doubt they would win. I honestly think it would've been just like the actual temple run, where Janeen moved much too slowly. Unless they really turned it around in the temple run, I have very little high hopes for them either. But you're right though, Lacey and Asher definitely would've won that layout. It was way too easy, especially since Jay and Janeen were literally forced to take shortcuts. This temple run for sure was a letdown, because of Janeen. Lacey and Asher were fast enough, so they for sure would've won with a layout like that. ;)

And yes it's gonna be a while before I cover Good Luck Watch in my failed escape thread. :lol: Unless I change things around to cover it next. But I think we can wait a while on that.
