Thanks GM1 for updating this everyday and thanks for everyone who took the time and gave feedback for each of these episodes. I know reviewing 120 episodes is a daunting task, but I enjoyed reviewing every episode and it helped bring back some memories for me. I know I went into a little too much detail in my episode rankings, but it was worth it. I wish some of these episodes got more than 3 or 4 votes, but at least all the popular ones got a good amount of votes and feedback.  :mrred:  :mrgreen:  :mrblue:  :mrorange:  :mrpurple:  :mrsilver:

I don't really have many problems with the final results either. I was very surprised that "Catherine the Great" finished with a perfect 10 because I thought everyone would give it a 9 due to the simple temple layout. But I am not complaining at all.  :mrred:

I am also glad that Lawrence of Arabia, Annie Taylor, and Pirate Captain got perfect 10's also.  :mrgreen:  :mrblue:

I wish "Imperial Wizard" was a little higher up on the list though. I know the episode was forgettable, but it was still decent and should've finished with at least of a score of a 6. Although the legend was really lame though.

I am surprised that  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  made it into the top 50 too.  :o

This is how I see each episode ranking:

7.00 - 10 - These episodes are definitely worth watching and you are missing out by not watching them. They are ones that you can go back to time to time and still watch them and they never get old.

5 - 6.99 - These episodes are either average, boring, or forgettable. But they are still worth watching and at least they still have something redeeming about them. They are episodes that you will go back to watch, but they are definitely not at the top of the list.

3.51 - 4.99 - These episodes are mediocre with lackluster rounds and bad performances. They are not total wastes though but you will most likely not to want to watch them. But they do still have something good about them...

0-3.5 - Stay away from these episodes. They are bad and hardly have anything redeeming about them. These are the episodes that you only watch for completion and never watch them again unless you use them for reference (like I am with the episode reviews) or for a game. I definitely say avoid these ones.

I sure bad a great time with this topic. Basically, you were the one who started the rating threads and everyone else joined along. But they weird thing was only three users voted in all episodes; you, me, & PPF. The others just joined the ones they knew. And about the pole expiration day, I think that should be enabled or all of us become mods. PPF really put a majority on fixing the poll, and he did a great job with it.

I don't really blame anyone for not wanting to vote in every single episode. I mean Stone Marker? Attila the Hun? Robert the Bruce? Those are episodes where it felt like "Why bother even rating?" since they were so forgettable and nothing to recall from them. The episodes that got the most votes were either the really bad ones, the ones where the temple team wins, or the ones where something significant happens in the episode. The rankings would've been slightly better if at least 5 people voted for each episode. But I guess you can't force people to vote in everything.

But yeah, it was quite a daunting task for the three of us to take on 120 episodes. I didn't mind providing my input for all of the episodes because it generated discussion and it was interesting to see how some of the obscure episodes were rated. I will admit that I will miss coming on here at night and voting for the next daily episode. :P Oh well, I guess I will wait until the next big thing comes around.  :mrred:

Don't worry, I am pretty sure I called her a guy at one point too. :P

Now that these rankings are done, I can use them as a reference for my Legends Episode rankings. So when I rank an episode like Alhambra or Bifocal Monocle, I should expect it to rank towards the bottom of the list. I will still probably make a couple of polls here and there in the Chamber of the Sacred Markers like I just did for the temple room one, so don't expect this forum to go defunct now. :P

That's the third time it's happened to me  :oops: :lol: 


And yeah, with the completion of the rating thread, the next big thing is my countdown I guess. We'll come up with something though. I mean, the show's 20th anniversary is in September so...

I wish this forum had a way to determine genders around here. We had that here once, but it was gotten rid of for no reason.

Anyways, looking at this list, look at how many Red Jaguar and Orange Iguana episodes rank towards the bottom. It definitely says a lot about them when most of their episodes rank so low, when otherwise they're the "power house" teams.

I am not surprised at all actually for the amount of Red Jaguar and Orange Iguanas at the bottom. I mean both only really have less than a dozen episodes that were actually good.

The Silver Snakes also had a bunch of episodes that were towards the bottom half too. But they also quite a few at the top.

The Green Monkeys definitely dominated the upper half with their episodes, and 3/5 of their episodes even made the top 5 list. And not to mention, they have at least 6 episodes that ranked 9.00+ higher.

The Purple Parrots also did pretty well too, with only Oracle Bowl and Lost Lion Tail ranking low. Their episodes with wins got good rankings too.

The Blue Barracudas were the only team really spread out evenly.

I got an idea

What if we did another interesting Temple Game topic? It will be a new elimination style. I'll call it. Three Strikes. Just like in baseball, 3 strikes you're out. So when you choose which one to get a strike, you would give that episode a strike, once the third strike is given, it's out. Oh yeah, no healing.

What about "Rate the Triple Capture?" We've done wins and failed escapes, but nobody has done triple captures yet. Even though that particular result isn't very positive, not all the triple captures were bad. Like Kamehameha and Great Seal would probably rank pretty high. And I can see Magellan and Secret Battle Plan ranking pretty low.

I wouldn't mind that at all. There are only a dozen or so triple captures on the show anyways, so it would take less than 2 weeks. I could even make the topic if anyone wants.  ;)

You can make it, I don't like leading topics.

EDIT: Oh, and I got rid of the poll expiration date. Since we're already done with voting. ;)
