Lawrance of Arabia's Headdress

The first episode Nick ever aired, and they picked a dandy for its premiere.  The first "buzzer-beater" in Legends history, and one of the most famous Runs of all-time.

The Royal Torque of Boadicea

While no team ever recorded a win from the Tomb, this was the closest ever to a victory.  Both players were fast and relatively smart, but just didn't have the luck they needed to get the job done.

Soundstage 18 / GUTS

Make Your Mark, I believe.  Yeah, the most common version of that game involved the players planting their feet on the chalk and putting them on the board.

I think my favorite GUTS event would probably be Hang Ten, with Slam Dunk and Bulls-Eye second and third.

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.

And, yes.  Wesley is 10X better than Larry.  Even his bad jokes get a laugh for his reaction.

Here's a brief collection of Wesley at his craziest.

The Heart Room / Top 5 Season 2 Temple Runs

In no particular order

The Enormous Iron Nose Ring of Babe the Ox
The Applewood Amulet of Emiliano Zapata
The Heart-Shaped Pillow of Annie Taylor
The Levitating Dog Leash of Nostradamas
The Snakeskin Boots of Billy the Kid

That's pretty much my top 5 as well.  I place the Nose Ring at #1, with the Applewood Amulet a close second.

The Enormous Iron Nose Ring of Babe (The Ox)

I consider this to be the best solo run of all time.  While Dee was describing the prizes, Joel told Kirk "I think I can handle it."  And, man, did he handle it!  He was really fast and agile (even managing to avoid the Temple Spirit in the Dark Forest) and despite a little bit of trouble in the Shrine, he got the Nose Ring and got out with just under a minute to spare.

The Metal Beard of the Egyptian Queen

TJ and Randy were quite fast here.  Randy did take a rather unusual path out of the Temple, but she managed to get out with 4 seconds left for a nice 1 pendant victory.  In making her trek out of the Temple, Randy managed to enter all 12 rooms.  Messy, but effective and successful.

I'll check again during the 2-3 shift, but the second episode today is The Metal Beard of the Egyptian Queen.  A nice, solid One Pendant win.

Well, two more infamous moments today.

The Mask of Shaka Zulu

The most famous production error in the series.  Not much to say about this one, as the rest of the episode was pretty average before the famous Run.

Elizabeth I's Golden Ship

From the quickest win in Legends history, to its quickest loss.  If the team had moved just a little bit faster, this run would've been over in just around 1 minute.  Also, watch for a hilariously anti-climactic second Temple Game in this one.

The Dead Man's Hand

The first Legends episode ever recorded, and the producers expected a little too much out of the team here.  A truly nasty layout cost the Iguanas big time here.  (NOTE: This episode also contains the "Colonel Sanders" Steps of Knowledge blunder.  Also, note how the players introduce themselves with their first and last name in the Temple Games)

Blackbeard's Treasure Map

Undoubtedly the single worst Temple Run of the first season, and one of the worst of all-time.  The frontrunner didn't even make eye contact with the artifact, as he was extremely slow, and unlucky.  One of the most famous "Never send the slow-witted runner into the temple first" examples.

Oh, and one more thing I forgot to add: Today's first episode also contains Kirk's famous "Exit, Stage Right" routine when segueing into the Temple Games.  :)

So, according to The Purple Parrot, we've got two very famous episodes today:

The Much-Heralded Helmet of Sir Gawain:

Solo runs are awesome, but solo runs that manage to avoid the Guards are even more awesome.  This was only achieved twice, and this is one of those two episodes (the other being the Enormous Iron Nose Ring of Babe the Ox, my personal favorite Temple Run).  Tiffani was a decent runner, and made some smart decisions on her way to the artifact.  Nice win.

And, then we get The Broken Trident of Poseidon.  It doesn't get much more boneheaded than dropping the artifact and running out of the temple without it.  (Well, except for outright running past it.  GET THE PEPPERONI!!! :P)  Like Tiffani, Kimberly also managed to avoid the Guards, but unlike the first episode today, this run has a famously disappointing outcome.

Hmm... 2 very exciting non-wins today.  The first being the most famous "close but no cigar" episode in Legends' run.

Bullet-Riddled Handbag of Belle Boyd

A pair of good, intelligent players, but a tough design paired with a couple unecessary detours cost the team here.

The Bellybutton of Buddah

The frontrunner here had average speed, but seemed to know what she was doing, and aside from a few brief moments of hesitation, managed the solo win.

The Secret Map of the Bandit Queen

Not much needs to be said about this one that hasn't already been said many times on this forum and other sites.  Zac was simply a monster in the Temple.  The only real mistake this team made was Miriam's minor miscue heading into the Dark Forest, but Zac more than made up for that minor gaffe.

The Lucky Pig of Amelia Earhart

One of the few times that the frontrunner fails to grab the object AND keeps the second player from entering the temple.  The main highlight of this one is Kirk's energy.  Watch the Games here, as Kirk interviews the contestants after every game, something that never happens in any of the other episodes.

The Dark Forest / Favorite shows (other than Legends)

Iron Chef was, is, and forever will be the greatest cooking show of all-time.

I also enjoy various game shows, including the Nickelodeon shows like GUTS, Figure it Out and of course, Legends.  I also watch various cartoons and children's programming.

At night, I kick back, tune to MSNBC and watch Keith Olbermann's Countdown.  Countdown mixes the day's real news with a bit of Daily Show-style comedy.  My favorite part is when he mixes it up with his arch-rival Bill o'Reilly.
