A: The MineshaftA: The Room of Golden Idols

Analysis: One word, blowout. Galileo was the very first win on the show, thanks to Jammin Jon! I want to say that this was the first Temple Run that was filmed, and it was a good one. There was an awkward off camera moment when the Mineshaft elevator got stuck, but it go fixed, and Jammin Jon got out with one second left. :mrsilver:  However, during the Legend, they overdid it when Olmec mentioned the Cannonballs landing on sandwiches, therefore making pizza. :roll: 
John Henry was a good episode until the run, with the exception of the Green Monkeys getting DQed in the Moat. Then Kim looked like a pure idiot during the run. How do you not know what a button is? Apparently, Kim didn't and wasted a majority of the run trying to learn this objective... twice. They sent a mercy temple guard. Billy deserved a better partner.

Just end the poll now and go to the next day. :lol:
Favourite Team: Red Jaguars
Favourite Episode: The Jewel-Encrusted Egg of Catherine the Great, tied with the Mussel Shell Armor of Apanuugpak and the Lost Hornpipe of the Pirate Captain
Favourite Season: Season 3

When artists like LMFAO, Ke$ha, Taylor Swift, Carly Rae Jespen and Justin Bieber and songs like "Party Rock Anthem", "Call Me Maybe", "Thrift Shop" and others are succeeding in today's music industry and about 99% of the world is buying their shit and any argument you make is followed by nonsense from these people, you would wish the world had ended on 21st December 2012.

Interesting match-up and both episodes have some stuff in common. Both were episodes taped very early on in Season 1, both were Silver Snake runs, and both teams did well pre-temple rounds. However, the temple runs are polar opposites of each other. The "Galileo" temple win was a classic and I thought Jammin John was awesome despite how some people find him to be overrated. "John Henry" on the other hand was one of the worst runs and Kim was one of the biggest disgraces in the history of the show. I love "Galileo" and I hope it makes it far in this competition.  :mrsilver:

Oh come on guys, Lost Hammer doesn't deserve all this hate. It's an episode that has a lot going for it. The moat was a very thrilling one that saw a team get disqualified. Not to mention, one of the teams that didn't go through would later go on to win in a later episode (John Sutter). The SoK was very strong. You gotta give all four teams credit. They wanted to go through to the next round. Then came the competitive temple games. Give the losing team a lot of credit too. They showed a lot of heart despite the losing effort. An effort that shouldn't be overlooked. Finally, it's the temple run. Kim is, without a doubt, one of the best players I have ever seen enter the temple. She gave it her all and she was outstanding before getting taken out. Kim did a fantastic job hitting those buttons. I couldn't have done it better myself! This was an episode that had it all!!!


















































Or you can just say, John Henry's Lost Hammer FUCKING SUCKS!!!!!!!! Galileo's Cannonball easily gets my vote. Next matchup, please. This one isn't even close! :lol:

Thought I had you guys, didn't you? Don't worry, I wouldn't turn on you like that. Just trying to make this match seem interesting. ;)

PP319, you actually fooled me there for a minute.  :oops: I remember you showing me reruns of John Henry at your house and you wouldn't stop jumping up and down with excitement the whole time. I didn't know you have had such malice towards this episode.  :o

Oh PP319, you gave me a near heart attack there for a second. :lol: And I had a big speech prepared too. Well, not really, but good one. :mrsilver: And TRJ, take your head out of your ass. You know PP319 wouldn't let Kim anywhere near his house with a 10 foot poll. Unlike you, who seduced her even after she said no to you. ;)

And yeah, let's end this one early. Come on, everyone knows Galileo is gonna win. You should see who Cricket Cage is paired up with. :lipsrsealed:

The winner is 

GALILEO'S CANNONBALL

Obviously this very exciting episode over an episode featuring someone who doesn't know what a button is.

I am not going to lie, Lost Hammer is pretty funny to rewatch because of how stupid Kim was. The combination of Kirk shouting and Billy shouting to press a button makes that part of the run comical. :lol: To this day, I do not know how someone could be that stupid in the temple. Even John and Tia knew what a button looked like. I say Kim is the worst female player after Tia.  :roll:

I don't know, Lisa was pretty damn stupid too. But yeah, Kim and Tia were even worse.
