The Dark Forest / Pictures of My Nephew Braden

I had a good friend named Braden in middle school.  He was a great guy.  With any luck, that's a sign of things to come.

The Heart Room / Daily Episode Log - GaS/TurboNick
« on: June 05, 2007, 09:30:47 PM »
Anyone watching right now that can tell me what episode's on?  They probably just wrapped the temple run, it's 29 past the hour.  Well, can anyone tell me what episode's next, in the 30-00 block?

Damned VCR taped over the weekend even though I programmed it otherwise, so now I've got part of whatever aired this morning.

In the unlikely event that Nick aires all 120 episodes and starts over again then I can catch it when it repeats, but what are the chances of that?

UPDATE: I lucked out, turns out we had a power outage this morning.
ESPN classic is doing that with Amerian Gladiators- the precursor of Nick's GUTS.  So, who knows?

I forgot to mention the shifts they're doing.  Apparantly, the 7 PM airings are a couple episodes (give or take) ahead of the 2 AM airings.

The Heart Room / The Worst EPISODE Ever

The first one, when the producers expected way too much.  It was just too hard to take in, though all the mishaps were rather comical.
It's so true, but the crew deserved a bad episode for not shooting a pilot of any form prior to the first episode.
At the very least, they could have tested it.  Actually, there was a Kirk Fogg interview in which he said he tested the temple once before every season.

Actually, if I recall, he also said that he didn't have to deal with guards.
Kirk, while he said he didn't, had a better grasp on the objective than the kids did (not to mention the strength to get him to the artifact and out), so it's not a perfect comparison, but I can see your point. (I wonder if Dee Baker got to run through it as well?)

If Kirk did, Dee might have, but I wouldn't bet on it.  And yeah, Kirk had an exponentially greater idea of what he had to do.  But, I suppose if the kids had paid attention, run through it verbally and in their heads, they could have done as well as Kirk.

And as a little bonus, they also had Kirk's infinite wisdom.  "The door's unlocked!" and stuff like that.

EDIT:  Kirk may have been physically stronger, but that doesn't mean he had better cardiovascular fitness.  He hosted a game show, probably worked out occasionally, but most of the kids claimed roots in sports, which would require periodic workouts and practices.

That said, it's possible some of the kids had deeper gas tanks, if you will.

The Pit / YTMND fads plus Olmec.

It is genius. It's almost identical to that one YTMND page (I don't think it's the same), but its randomness still shines through.

I feel like moving this topic to the Pit because it doesn't deal with the discussion of the show.

Move it if you may, but don't fault me for posting in the wrong forum.  First day, and the ropes will shortly be learned.

Kirk's hand motions and pointing during the opening are gold.  They sync perfectly.

EDIT:  Just finished watching.  Great video front to back.  Forgot how much Missy was freaking out after she came out with the pillow.

Ha ha, thank you.

The temple guard in the Tomb of the Headless Kings kinda freaked me out.  You kinda transitioned right to him.
