Oh God this is so hard, but I guess "The Lily-Crested Crown of Clovis I" needs to go next due to the close temple games (Orange won 2-1.5) and Katie's big messup during the temple run. Other than that, this episode was completely forgettable and I didn't even know it existed back during the Nick GAS days until Renegade was waiting for that episode for completion towards his site.

2x27 - The Crown of Queen Nzinga
2x30 - The Golden Goblet of Attila the Hun

#5 goes to The Dried Ear of Corn of Sojourner Truth. It was memorable because the artifact was corn, and because of the close encounter with the corn.

The #4 spot goes to "The Golden Goblet of Attila the Hun." It is memorable for the interesting temple game sequence, the Purple Parrots losing at the tiebreaker AGAIN, and the tough layout Shelly had to endure. Other than that though, there's nothing much MORE memorable than that.

Also, I kept the remaining three together on the list. Since there are so few runs left at this point.

2x27 - The Crown of Queen Nzinga

I think I can slightly remember The Lion-Slashed Jacket of Sacagawea, so it can go now. For some reason, that artifact was always pretty cool to me.

Since there are two episodes left, I guess we can vote on which one of the two are more forgettable.

I place my vote for "The Stone Marker of Leif Erickson" for being the most forgettable episode on this show. Out of 120 episodes on this show, I don't remember a single round on this show and the temple run is very forgettable too.

At least with the Crown of Queen Nzinga, I remember it for being the only episode where an artifact is in the Lightning Room. And also, its the only temple run to be ended by the temple spirit. Other than that, this episode is very forgettable too, but the Stone Marker takes this one.

1x25 - The Stone Marker of Leif Ericson: 1
2x27 - The Crown of Queen Nzinga: 0

#3: The Lion-Slashed Jacket of Sacagawea
#4: The Golden Goblet of Attila the Hun
#5: The Dried Ear of Corn of Sojourner Truth
#6: The Lily-Crested Crown of Clovis I
#7: The Ivory Elephant of Scheherazade
#8: The Lost Logbooks of Magellan
#9: The Bent Shaving Pan of Jedediah Smith
#10: The Golden Stallion of Ali Baba
#11: The Mask of the Man in the Iron Mask
#12: The Silver Saddle Horn of Hannibal
#13: Alexander and the Gordian Knot
#14: The Stolen Arm of Shiva
#15: The Treasure Map of Jean Lafitte
#16: The Shriveled Hand of Efoua
#17: Ponce de Leon and the Lost Fountain of Youth

Can I vote again? If so, my vote goes for Stone Marker as well. Basically the same reason as TRJ.

Go for it. At this point, we are voting to decide a winner rather than eliminating episodes.  ;)

And the winner is The Stone Marker of Leif Ericson. There is not one thing memorable about the episode, and the impossible temple layout doesn't help matters either. Nzinga would have been a good choice for #1 too, but Stone Marker is fine taking the #1 spot.

Well, I suppose it's not completely what I would've expected, but not that bad a list in the end. :)

Admittedly, if I'd been the only one making this list, I would've probably put "The Lily-Crested Crown of Clovis I" in the #1 position.  You have no idea how many times I've tried to go over lists of certain episodes for trivia games or whatnot, and that one is just impossible for me to think of, no matter what. :lol:

I'm also really shocked by "The Crown of Queen Nzinga" making it to #2, mostly because of the unique details about the Temple Run (only artifact in the Lightning Room, only run ended by a Temple Spirit, one of only three with all three guards in adjacent rooms).  I probably would've also put "Sojourner Truth" a bit further from the end and "Scheherazade" a bit closer to it, but I suppose in those cases (and possibly "Clovis I" as well), Nick GaS's airing decisions might've had a subconscious impact on what episodes I remember better.  Who can tell? :P
If you have seen all 120 full episodes of Legends, copy and paste this into your profile for all to see.

Considering that it took them over a year to show "The Ivory Elephant of Scheherezade", I am not surprised to see it so high on this list. It was one of the last few episodes I needed to view, and like Clovis I, it was just not as exciting and memorable as other Legends episodes. But I will admit, I am surprised the Queen Nzinga finished in the number two spot for the same very reasons you listed, not to mention the run ended in triple capture. But its one of those episodes that you watch one or two times and don't bother watching again because, aside from the temple run, there is nothing remarkable or memorable about it.

In the end, the final 10 is good enough and I could see most of them take the #1 position. This was an interesting game too and the outcome was very good.

TOP 25 MOST FORGETTABLE EPISODES:

#22: The Lost Taj Mahal Turban of Aurangzeb
#23: The Golden Chains of Zenobia
#24: The Dried Apple Half of William Tell
#25: The Silver Cannonball of Grandy Nanny

Interesting enough, 3 episodes on both list made it to the top 10. Other than that, this list has some glaring differences, which tells you a lot about the difference between temple runs and episodes as a whole.

For example, people may list "The Cracked Crown of the Spanish King" high on a list of most forgettable temple runs because the temple run is very forgettable and nothing sticks out really from it.

However, this same episode might not rank as a high on a most forgettable episode list due to the fact that the episode had such a long moat, which sticks out more than just the temple run.

Yeah, this is a pretty good list. I would have made some serious adjustments though, had I made this list myself. I agree about "Lily Crested Crown," there is NOTHING memorable about that episode. No wonder people forgot this was even an episode back when Nick Gas wouldn't play it. I would have given the #1 spot to "The Stolen Arm of Shiva." Seriously, do you remember anything about this episode? I've only seen the full episode twice, and I always forget this is even an episode most of the time.

I agree about Nzinga, I really wish I would have eliminated that one sooner. Aside from the artifact location and the temple guard placement, there really isn't anything exciting. Sojourner Truth and Scheherazade deserve their spots in my opinion. Those episodes have next to nothing memorable about it.

And interesting list there, TRJ. You're right, temple runs and the whole episode itself are two completely different ballparks. I can't wait to do a most memorable episode/temple run list. Though I can tell one of those games have already been started.
