Just watched the full episode for The Silk Sash of Mulan and I must say, I really didn't see the Green Monkey boy do much wrong. Other than that, the list looks fine. I would've had the Dungeon temple guard up a little higher, but that's just me.

Another good list. From the poor editing at the end of the "Henry Hudson" run, to the racist (and ridiculous) "Imperial Wizard" legend. In the "Kamehameha" screencap, it looks like Tina is getting arrested by the temple guard. That's what it always looked like to me everytime I saw that run. :lol:

And I definitely remember that idiot boy on the Green Monkeys in the "Silk Sash" episode. I'm glad he didn't make it to the temple. :roll:

Yeah, the temple guard pulling Tina away was just so awkward. He just strolls into the Tomb and grabs Tina like nothing happened. Poor team though, they should've won.

Personally, I felt like he wasn't even trying at all. In his temple game, he kept running fast on the pendant wheel to the point that he kept falling off. And after the temple game was finished, he just stood there looking like an idiot before he made a stupid face to the camera. And in the team game, he didn't attempt to knock down the soldiers like Jessie was doing. Plus, he kept spinning the sack around while his partner was pushing him. Either way, he looked like an idiot who just wanted to be on TV.

As for the Dungeon guard, I didn't think it was too big of a fail on account that it was expected to be encountered. But either way, the list is tentative so I might move some of them around.

Yeah, the Green Monkey boy wasn't trying at all. He LOST his temple game, yet he does this stupid looking wave to the camera. And he looked just ridiculous in the team temple game. Like he wasn't even attempting to knock the soldiers down. He was just an attention seeker who just wanted to be on camera. He was an idiot, he deserves to be on that list.

And I don't mind the ranking of the Dungeon temple guard. Because like TRJ said, they had the capture coming since the team entered almost every room at that point.

I guess you guys are right about the Kamehameha run. It was more of a temple guard fail rather than a player fail. When Tina entered the Pirate's Cove, you knew a capture was coming. The way the capture happened was unusual.

It wasn't either Tina's or the temple guards fault really for the run ending like that. Tina was moving fast once she reached the Dungeon, so the guard didn't have enough time to capture her. Plus, I bet the tarp slowed him down a little bit. So its not like the guard purposely waited until she entered the Tomb for him to come out. And on the other hand, its not Tina's fault either for being able to enter the Tomb of the Ancient Kings. Either way, I think the temple guard deserves a mention because he just awkwardly walks in the room and captures Tina like he missed his cue. But in the end, I don't think it was too big of a fail due to the circumstances listed above. Its still a heartbreaking ending though.  :cry:

I am glad that you two bumped this, because I want to try and get as much done as possible on this list before I go back to school at the end of August.

Maybe I will be abl to post an update tonight. ;)

Here's the next set of fails. Like always, leave your feedback and I appreciate every bit of it. ;)

Legends Fails 36-40:

40. "The Applewood Amulet of Emiliano Zapata"The Gong's revenge




During the moat crossing for the Blue Barracudas, they were the last team to chime into the moat and move onto the Steps of Knowledge. When they chimed into the gong, they knocked the gong right off the pedestal. Right after that, Kirk points out that the Silver Snakes were wrongly sent back during the moat and that they were the team that was going to be replaced in the Steps. So the Blue Barracudas were disqualified in the moat as if they were being punish for breaking off the gong. Luckily for them, they were given a second chance in "The Priceless Portrait of the Polynesian Girl" where they actually made it to the temple games but ultimately lost to another moat replacement team coincidentally.

39. "The Metal Beard of the Egyptian Queen"An exit that was not so Randy



This episode marked the first time the Purple Parrots made it to the temple while beating another team in a tiebreaker. As for the temple run itself, both T.J. and Randy were a strong team and Randy made it to the Metal Beard with plenty of time on the clock. But the run takes a turn for the worst when Randy starts taking an awkward path out of the temple, which involved running into different rooms. Her exit plan was starting to tick T.J. off, who was shouting at her to hurry the hell up. When she even enters the Ledges, she climbs up to the Crypt before running down the stairs. Luckily, this team still won with 0:05 remaining. But this might've not been a win if Randy planned a little better,

38. "The Dragon Lady and the Blue Pearl""Jennifer, you are going to have to dive for it..."




This episode marks the closest a contestant has attempted to reach an artifact, but failed to grab it before time is up. Jennifer was literally inches or even millimeters away from grabbing the Blue Pearl. She could've grabbed the Blue Pearl had she not made the dramatic dive for it. Although I blame Kirk in part of this also because she told her to go for the dramatic dive. But even after hauling ass to get to the Holes of Python, Jennifer still comes up short. Although most of the blame should be put onto her partner Albert, but that is an entirely different story that must be saved for later.

37. "The Silk Sash of Mulan" Attack of the temple guards




Normally, the temple guards were frightening to the contestants due to their scary and surprising nature. But these temple guards in this episode took it to a new limit. The first temple guard in the Crypt was trying so hard to capture Jessie that he broke the temple guard door. And afterwards, she throws the pendant of life at him and then he looks around stupidly like a lost animal looking for the pendant on the ground. But their insanity doesn't stop there. When Steven enters the Laser Light Room, the final temple guard instantly grabs him and demands the pendant of life from him. Then he starts screaming at Steven and makes weird noises while Steven scrambles to give him his pendant. He even grabs Steven while he is trying to give him a half-pendant? What were these temple guards on during this run? They were more out of control than usual.

36. "The Electrified Key of Benjamin Franklin"If only it was that simple...



Bottom of the central shaft runs were always tricky on the show, but this team tried a little to hard to blow it as much as they can. The name of the fail here is Peter. He starts off his temple run by running straight into the Pit and pushing the actuator to the Throne Room. Honestly, why do these kids think pressing the button that leads right to the artifact is going to work? Nothing is ever that simple. In season two, nevertheless. But the fail does not stop there. After being forced to the top of the temple, he continues to beeline for the Throne Room by entering Medusa's Lair. Here, he encounters a temple guard and loses a pendant. He is then taken out in the next room by a temple guard. Michelle almost made a fail herself by almost running into the Crypt, which had a temple guard in it by judging from the path the team took. But the biggest fail was Peter trying too hard to get into the Throne Room. Sorry kids, but Olmec's temple is just not that simple.

I'm glad you included Peter in this. Michelle also had a fail on her part when she ignored the Shrine-Forest passage. I really despise that run.

You despise that run?  :o I always thought that it was pretty exciting, even if the Blue Barracudas made some not so smart moves. Peter may have beelined for the direct path, but I thought he moved pretty fast in the temple. Michelle was also very fast, and she had one of the fastest King's Storeroom completions on the show. And they had a pretty lengthy layout and still almost reached the Electrified Key. Its a pretty still exciting run despite all the flaws.  :mrblue:

Yeah, I fail to see how it was a terrible run. It's not like they ran into a third temple guard and lost with over a minute on the clock. And it's not like they went all the way around the bend and couldn't get past the Dark Forest. Mistakes aside, they were pretty fast players who knew what they were doing. Disappointing run yes, but it's not an absolute terrible run.

I never said it was a terrible run. I do think it was a good run, but one I don't like because of the mistakes made. The win was handed to them, but they threw it away with the mistakes.

And with TRJ going back to college soon, maybe it's time for one more set of five fails before you go? ;)

I don't really consider the win being handed to them. ;) I mean the minimum number of rooms they had to enter to reach the Key was seven, which was quite a task for a season two temple. This run reminds me of "The Golden Earring of Henry Morgan" where both contestants on each team make a mistake that cost them the grand prize. Both Peter and Ashley could've had a solo victory if they chose a different path. And both Michelle and Shem entered an unnecessary room en route to the artifact. Although the "Henry Morgan" run was more exciting than "Benjamin Franklin". But still, I can overlook both player's mistakes as they still put up a good effort and the outcome is not that disappointing. Its not like "The Missing Missing Maps of Charles Lindbergh" where Nick sets up a nice path and Kim blows it. Now THAT was a disappointing mess. :roll:

And yeah, maybe I should get back to this list? I am also trying to complete my Player Rankings for the "Henry Morgan" production day before going back to school. :o :mrred:
