Let's kick off the top 1/4

#30: The Collar of Davy Crockett

It was either this or Snake Bracelet and I chose Collar. This had to be one of the worst artifacts ever, it was a Pendant of Life! :shock: :roll: :roll: :roll: There were very competitive Temple Games with a tiebreaker. The run was a mix of Sforza &  :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll:. Shannon was fast but Adam was slow. He won with 4 seconds left. Kirk had to evaluate the artifact to make sure too, because it was a motherfucking pendant! :roll: Still, this was a lot better than :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll::mrsilver:

#29: The Dragon Lady & the Blue Pearl


This was a nail biting episode. The silk wrap game was used in this episode (and King Tut). The run is what makes it nail biting. Albert was kinda slow, especially after the first guard. He deserved to be taken out one room away. Jennifer somehow caught up, even after a delay for the elevator. It is unfair they made the team use the elevator twice, and you'll find out. Jennifer makes it to the Holes of Python, dives for the Blue Pearl in the closing seconds, and fell one yard short.

#28: The Very Tall Turban of Ahmed Baba

This was a Shane episode. Shane & Jamie were a good team. Shane went through 10 rooms all by himself. Shane had some trouble in the Swamp so the Guard tried to help. Shane eventually got the Turban, and almost pulled a Tara. Eventually he won. Shane's name was said 16 times during the run.

Dragon Lady was a very exciting episode and a nail biter too. The legend was good, the artifact looked beautiful, and the temple games were fun for the rare mummy wrapping game and dragon tunnel temple games. The temple loss was very exciting on the show, one of my all time favorite losses after "Ivan the Terrible" and "Henry Morgan". Just one more second Jennifer would've reached the Blue Pearl. Very memorable ending though. This episode ranks closer to my top 20, but I am glad it made it to the top 30. I would give this episode a 9/10.

Ahmed Baba is pretty boring to me. If it wasn't a win, then I wouldn't have cared about it at all. I don't remember many details about this one either, except for the Purple Parrots choking in the team game. The temple win is overrated though and any average contestant would've won with Shane's layout. Oh well, he earned it and it was sort fun watching someone complete almost all the temple rooms. The temple run commentary was obnoxious though. "When are you coming home, Shane?!". -_- I give this one a 6/10 personally (and that is being generous).

#27: The Good Luck Watch of Empress Eugenie

Spoiler alert. This is the first of three straight bottom of the central shaft grabs. If you haven't noticed on YouTube, this is the only episode that has the Nick logo on it. All the others have Nick Gas. Janeen made sure this would be a loss.  :roll: But at least the "Mr. Temple Guard" experience was funny! :lol: Jay was fast, but he really got screwed by a Jester's Court error. He got the watch as time expired

#26: The Royal Torque of Queen Boadicea

This has to be the closest we got to a Bottom Central Shaft victory. Lissy is the reason why this wasn't a victory, she took forever to clear three rooms. Nate, on the other hand, was much faster. He tore through the Temple and got the Royal Torque with 15 seconds left. He climbs up to the Chamber thinking it may be faster, but time ran out in the Pit.

#25: The Priceless Portrait of the Polynesian Girl

This was a good episode. The Purple Parrots were brought back from Applewood Amulet & the Silver Snakes came back from Imperial Purple Robe. Scott was alright but he didn't last long. Kristen found the necessary half pendant and later got the Portrait, but was just entering the Ledges when time ran out.

You got the part right about Polynesian Girl being ahead of Queen Boadicea. Both episodes were great and very exciting. Boadicea featured the better temple team, but Polynesian Girl was all around a more memorable and exciting episode. I actually would've put this episode in the top 20. Good legend, interesting artifact, and the temple games were fun too. The producers did a good job on the art theme throughout the whole episode. Especially Kristen's temple game where the girls had to make a picture with their hands. The temple run was very exciting, but JIM (not Scott ;) ) should've gone in second. Kristen wasn't a bad player, but she was kind of slow and hesitant. The ending was very exciting and memorable though. Only 6 more seconds, then the Silver Snakes would've won. It was definitely a solid way to end S2.  :mrsilver:  :mrsilver:  :mrsilver:  :mrsilver:  :mrsilver:

#24: The Trojan Horseshoe

Lots of stuff here, oh where to start. First, if you read the Homer's epic poems Iliad & Odyssey, you will know that the Legend is mostly inaccurate. Then the Silver Snakes gave out bad answers. Paris was the answer to one of them, when it had nothing to do with the question. One was "Odysseus went on a ten year adventure", the Silver Snakes interrupted and said "He landed in um...." which he obviously didn't know because Olmec didn't finish the question. The most popular one was the "part at the bottom of your foot! *points to heel*" :lol: . Somehow, the Silver Snakes got to the bottom of the Steps. Shawn was one of the rare contestants who was 15. Lucretia was average, and Shawn was above average. He grabbed the Horseshoe and won. This was the first Green Monkey run and their first win, and it proved that more amazing wins were yet to come.  :mrgreen:  :mrgreen:  :mrgreen:

The Trojan Horseshoe is a pretty good episode in my eyes. The Steps of Knowledge round was one of the few moments on Legends to actually make me laugh. Especially the Silver Snake boy's reactions when he gave a wrong answer. The "part at the bottom of the foot" answer with him pointing to his heel was the best part. :lol: This was easily the worst Steps round ever when it comes to bad answers. But is also hilarious. :P The rest of the episode was pretty good too, and Shawn was a good contestant also. The temple win is similar to "Map to the Lost Gold Mine" layout wise, but I like Lost Gold Mine better than "The Trojan Horseshoe". The temple win wasn't bad though, just unexciting. Plus, Kirk's overexaggerated "It's opening, it's opening!" in the Pirate's Cove was hilarious too.  :lol: Good episode, even though I would've had it slightly lower on the list.

#23: The Golden Earring of Henry Morgan

This episode featured two amazing players that went to the Temple. They're so amazing, that I forget they ever won their individual games only! :o Ashley was fast but prevented the run being solo by just plowing through the wall, where a Temple Guard was. Matt was even faster and also messed up by failing to notice the Storeroom/Hand door. He still had an amazing Stone Column assembly and got the Earring at the last possible second. Ashley was pretty excited about that even though they still lost. :mrsilver:


Also, there is only one losing episode left. Spoiler: It's the team that had a "Terrible" layout

#22: The Much Heralded Helmet of Sir Gawain

Just missing the cut is this one. This episode also had the infamous "Tiffani" interview. Also, it's more famous for the "Exit Stage Left" by the  :iguanas2:& the  :parrots2:. It felt like another day at the office for the Orange Iguanas as the beat the Parrots once again. Tiffani had a good solo run, but she didn't have any guards in her route. The artifact was pretty heavy too, Tiffani kept tripping with that large helmet. She won at the clossing seconds. Also, only time a team retrieved an artifact in the Jester's Court and brought it out. :mrorange:

#21: The Discarded Seal of Ivan the Terrible

This is the last of all the losses. Travis & Elisa were so good :mrgreen: , it almost felt like they did nothing wrong. For being a good team, they got handed the hardest layout on the entire show and that is why this isn't a top 20 episode. This team would've won in almost any other layout, but no, they got the hardest one and they still couldn't get the Seal. :roll:  The path was the Chamber was the only door that opened from the Pit, which is where the first guard was. Then down through the Tomb, afterwards, Travis would break the foot button at the far right paiting in the Jester's Court.  :lol: This team was only allowed one shortcut, the Bog/Shrine passage. The second guard was in the Shrine. Elisa made it to the Shrine, assembled the Statue with about 15 seconds left, so they could have a last second grab for the Seal... until a Guard showed up in the Ancient Warriors, which guaranteed no artifact grabbing. If I was a staff member on the show, I would've at least give the Green Monkeys the second prize because of this layout. I'd rather have these two switch episodes with David & Karisa from Me Linh, at least they got their artifact... in a crappy way :roll: . Travis & Elisa would've easily won that and Karisa probably wouldn't have made it past the Quicksand Bog.


With that said, we are now entering the Top 20! :mrred: :mrblue: :mrgreen: :mrorange: :mrpurple: :mrsilver:
