It's stupid of people to think that just because one player reaches the artifact, it means they were automatically better players. That's irrelevent to me. You're right too, if Karisa had Bent Shaving Pan's layout, and went in first, she'd waste the entire time just making it to the Room of the Ancient Warriors. It would put Brian and Irish to shame in comparison. I hope you cussed him out good for that. :roll:

And Cobra Staff is MUCH more exciting than.... Shaka Zulu. Despite Eusinia being easily confused, their path was longer and harder anyways. So victory was already slim enough as it was. And like you said, Eusinia left plenty of time for David to make up for lost time, which he did. Albeit much slower than Eusinia. Plus, at least they reached the artifact at the last second. Cobra Staff is one of my favorite Season 1 episodes ever and it was very exciting the whole way through. I much prefer it over utterly boring episodes like Silver Saddle Horn, Shaka Zulu, and Joan of Arc. In fact, I think I may actually like this failed escape better than Sir Edmund Hilary and Golden Jaguar. It's very exciting and memorable, and a great performance. People just don't like it just because it's a Purple Parrot temple run. It's very underrated and doesn't get nearly enough credit as it deserves. :?

Cobra Staff was a great episode and temple run! I remember this one for the original Nick days, and I even believe I have it on tape somewhere still. Every round was fun and creative. Great legend, one of the best temple game sequences in Season 1, and the temple run was pretty exciting. It's no where near the mediocre and boring levels like Silver Saddle Horn or Zenobia. Those teams didn't even come close in the temple. And like TAW always points out, I like how Eusinia and David's strengths and weaknesses balanced each other out. I mean that is how teamwork should be. Unless these casual fans want another temple run like Ron or Chris who were absolute trash. :roll: Even when I reviewed Cobra Staff along time ago, it got a good score.  :mrpurple: I say it is even a top 50 episode! Maybe after I am done with the team rankings, I will do an episode countdown sort of like GM1. But it will be different and incorporate the results from our episode reviews. ;)

Wait a minute, I wanted to start a countdown of episodes. I wanted my projects to be recognized positively and well received for once. I thought I was going to do that. Sorry to take the spotlight away from you, but I wanted to do this. =/

So you were going to make a rankings after all? That's what I thought, but I didn't remember if you expressed interest or not. Don't worry, I will definitely let you make one whenever you feel like to. ;) I mean you always give me feedback on mine, so it is my turn to return the favor. I would never want to steal your idea or anything. I will be looking forward to it that's for sure.  :mrred:
