This is another tough one. I've already made my vote, but I'll probably be alone on my choice.

This is exactly why I hate the Anne Bonny/Queen Nzinga matchup from last night, because two good episodes like Kamehameha and Atahualpa got paired together for the first round and one of them won't go through while Anne Bonny gets an undeserving free pass. :roll:

I'm not going to lie, this has me pissed off and I haven't been in the best of moods today (see the Spam topic). So I'm just going to reveal who I voted for right now because I don't care anymore. My vote goes to Kamehameha because I thought it was more exciting. Not to mention, Kirk Fogg sounded more into it in this episode compared to Atahualpa. Both deserve to go into the next round, but it sucks that one has to go now while garbage like Anne Bonny advanced.

Well, sometimes to terrible episodes get paired up, and one episode is going to have no choice BUT to advance. Once again: I did not want either episode to advance. Anyone with eyes (and taste for that matter) can see that. Sometimes that's just the way it goes. Some things just can't be helped. Let's hope Anne Bonny gets paired up with a great episode next round. Then we never have to see it in this particular tourney ever again. That's all I have to say. I'm trying not to be as rude and blunt as I have been sounding lately. And I don't have much to say about this match up either.

On the bright side, Anne Bonny is facing a good episode next round: Trojan Horseshoe. I can't really tell you if that episode is top 32 material, but I can already tell you I'm voting for that one once that match comes.

It's too bad that one of these episodes won't advance. :cry: But that just how it goes sometimes. It happened in my tournament too where Chandragupta lost to Applewood Amulet in the first round. Even though it deserved to go over Genghis Khan and Roland. :?

Its amazing how similar both of these episodes are. Both first in the moat, both second in the Steps, both won their team games with one Pendant, both win their tiebreakers, and both enter a lot of rooms in the temple. Both teams would've won too if it wasn't for one mistake either. I went with the episode with the less flaws though. But it was a really close choice.  :P

Look at the list again. Kamehameha LOST their team game. It says very clearly W-W-L. Atahualpa DID NOT do that, for it says L-L-W. Pay attention. ;) No offense, but these Fogg Ups are way too much.

Yeah, Davy Crockett had the team comeback with Silver/Red, not Kamehameha. I didn't realize that GM1 outlined it in the original post. :P

And do you guys think Kamehameha is a little overrated? I love this episode a lot, but it seems to come off as being a little overloved around here. I don't mind if it is, but this episode does get a lot of talk.

I don't know, Kamehameha is an alright episode I guess. I like Great Seal better, but it'll be a while before we get to that one... I think?

Both episodes are great in my book, and I don't prefer one over the other. For a triple capture episode, both are really entertaining. I love both episodes a lot, but Great Seal was slightly more entertaining. It had the unique temple games and hilarious ending. Kamehameha was more on the tragic side for me. But I like both.

And Great Seal looks like it is matched up against Benjamin Franklin. Shouldn't be a hard choice for us. :P

The Winner is
THE PENDANT OF KAMEHAMEHA

This was a harder one. I went with this one because this had more excitement. Plus, it was so weird of the late Temple Guard that was very memorable.

The episode I chose was "Kamehameha" because the whole episode was fun to watch and the temple run was really exciting and memorable despite the loss. Robbie and Tina traveled through every room of the temple and still had more than enough time to bring the artifact out. The Dungeon temple guard was unfortunate too even if it was fair. One of the most tragic temple endings on the show.

I am upset that "Atahualpa" can't advance though. :( Another fun episode with a good legend, fun temple games, and a good temple run. I felt that Tracy and Chris brought their loss onto themselves more so than Robbie and Tina. Especially when they had a solo attempt too. This episode is a classic, but too bad it had to meet another formidable opponent.

I figured Atahualpa wouldn't advance. Kamehameha is a little more exciting. But that's just me.
