Episodes with similarities
« on: November 25, 2011, 04:34:15 PM »
I thought that this might be a fun topic and talk about something new at the same time.\

Anyways, what are some episodes that have glaring similarities? The similarities do not have to be from the temple runs, but those are usually where they are found anyways. While making similarities, try to shy away from episodes that are too obvious like episodes that share the same artifact locations.

Here are a few obvious episodes with similarities.

The Paintbrush of Leonardo Da Vinci
The Stone Marker of Leif Erickson
- Both episodes featured an artifact located in the Tomb of the Ancient Kings
- Both runs featured the girls of each team encountering a deadend in the Swamp area along with a temple guard.
- Both girls scaled the entire central shaft before being taken out in the Observatory.
- At least one contestant from each run entered the Room of Three Gargoyles at some point, but failed to press all three tongues which forced them into the Cave of Sighs.

The Belly Button of Buddha
The Milk Bucket of Freydis
- Both episodes featured an artifact located in the Observatory.
- Both episodes were solo wins by frontrunner girls from each team.
- Both episodes featured a solo victory and were the only solo victories by girls with two pendants.
- Both girls run into the Torch Room/Room of the Secret Password after completing the monkey.

Let's see if we can find more.  :mrorange:

Upside-Down Compass and Lion-Slashed Jacket are very similar too. Both players on both teams were pretty slow, they both had to scale the central shaft (technically, the King's Storeroom in the Compass run was optional), the layouts were tough, and both runs ended in the Shrine.

The Jeweled Necklace of Montezuma
The Two-Cornered Hat of Napoleon
- Both artifacts were located in the King's Storeroom.
- Both runs were Red Jaguars runs.
- Both boys started in the Crypt before being forced down into the Ledges.
- Both girls make a fatal mistake during the run that costs them the win (Kelly fails to assemble the monkey with plenty of time left and Carly takes the elevator instead of the Mine Shaft-Shrine door.)

The Missing Portrait of Hans Holbein
The Golden Spiderweb of Robert the Bruce
- Both artifacts were located in the Chamber of the Sacred Markers
- Both teams were forced to enter the Chamber via the bottom floor.
- Both frontrunners were girls who failed to pull all three books in the Crypt
- Both teams did not have any shortcuts to use during their run

Plus, Hand Holbein and Robert the Bruce were NOT filmed on the same day. The former episode had the "2 islands and a plank" moat, and the latter had the "net and vine" moat. But, both episodes WERE filmed last on their respective filming days. And both filming days that featured the aforementioned moats were all losses.

Oops, I always forget thought that Hans Holbein is not part of the "impossible layout" day. Thanks for clearing that up, I will go edit my post.  :mrred:

Also, good job with the Icarus/Poseidon comparison TSM. I would've never thought to find so much similarities between the two.

- Both artifacts are located in the Torch Room space.
- Both teams finished 1st in the Steps of Knowledge.

Word on Sir Edmund Hillary and Anne Bonny comparisons. I was about to come in and do those two. But you forgot to add how both runners dropped their artifact in the Throne Room. ;)

For Henry VIII's Great Seal and Kamehameha, you can add how both episodes are about a king.

Some more.

The Snakeskin Boots of Billy the Kid
- Both episodes featured a Purple/Silver temple game combination.
No. Billy The Kid was Green vs. Purple in the temple games.

Darn, how did I miss that when I looked at the episode page.

Fixed now.  :mrpurple:

Though I'm pretty sure Billy the Kid and :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: used to air together on Nick Gas. At least that's what it said in the old Daily Episode Log topic. So I can give you that. :mrsilver:
