Analysis: I'm leaning toward Snakeskin Boots for this one. Much better team that was one of the best on the show, and even though it is slightly overrated, I will take it. Great Seal was only famous for Nick jumping out of the Temple, but the team was good there too.

How is Billy the Kid overrated? Is this a Purple Parrots thing? Or just because of one thing Tony did at the end of the run? If anything, it's underrated. Too much undeserved criticism it gets. =/

And yes I did vote for Billy the Kid. I happen to think it's an excellent temple run. Much better than Very Tall Turban, Dr. Livingstone, Buddha, etc.

I agree with PPF on everything. Billy the Kid is not an overrated episode. It deserves all of the praise it gets. This is probably the best Purple Parrots episode on the show too next to Milk Bucket. The whole episode was memorable and you can't help but the root for Kelly and Tony.  :mrpurple: They dominated all of their rounds and won the temple on top of that. You couldn't even ask for a better first win.  :mrpurple: I also disagree about Great Seal only being memorable for Nick jumping out of the temple. The whole episode was memorable for me too. The legend was memorable for exaggerating how fat Henry VIII was, the temple games were memorable for the rare Bamboo Forest game and Nick knocking Kirk down in the soapy game, and of course the temple run is memorable for Nick jumping out of the temple and Shay's scream. I thought Nick and Shay were a good team too despite ending in triple capture.  :mrsilver:

With that being said, Billy the Kid gets my vote. It is a classic episode and it must be in the top 32 episodes. If episodes like Trojan Horseshoe advance to the next round, so should Billy the Kid.  :mrpurple: Great Seal was also a very memorable and enjoyable episode, but Billy the Kid has more going for it in the end. I love both episodes though. ;)

Moving on to the Round of 32 is...

THE SNAKESKIN BOOTS OF BILLY THE KID

Very good, but slightly overrated episode.

I just don't see how it's overrated. It's underrated, NOT overrated. This episode gets way too much undeserved hate for no reason at all. =/

For God's sake, Snakeskin Boots is NOT overrated. In fact, no matter who it's up against in the next round, I'm going to pick it just to show that it's more underrated than anything. :roll:

Looking at the bracket. It's going to face either Henry Morgan or Sir Edmund Hillary. Spoiler alert: I WILL pick Snakeskin Boots like I said I would. Deal with it.

Wow, I'm really starting to sound like Renegade, aren't I? :lol:

Billy the Kid totally deserves to be in the final 32. If episodes like Sforza get a lot of love and get to move onto the next round, so should Billy the Kid. And Billy the Kid is much superior to Sforza, even though I have nothing against it. And Billy the Kid is not overrated either. It deserves all the praise it gets. A lot of people place it into their top 10 for a good reasons. I am glad that it advanced to the next round. It should even advance farther when it plays the winner of Henry Morgan/Sir Edmund Hillary.  ;)  :mrpurple:
