Wow, that was quick! I thought for sure we'd still be in the 30s. :o So I guess my wish gets to come true by doing the following:

Bye Lawrence of Arabia! My last 4 point deduction eliminates this episode once and for all.

So Lucky Pillow wins! Whoo hoo! :mrblue:  :mrblue:  :mrblue:  :mrblue:  :mrblue:  :mrblue:  :mrblue:  :mrblue:

Yeah, it went by really fast. I am glad that I checked to update or else we might've had a winner without even realizing. :o

Congrats to Annie Taylor! Even though it didn't seem this way, this is the episode I wanted to win it all.  :mrblue: I mean how could I go against the #1 episode in my sig? The reason I kept hurting it was because I wanted the results to be close. If I had to make the final blow, I would've knocked Lawrence of Arabia out too. ;) But then again, if that episode or Pirate Captain won I wouldn't be upset.  :mrgreen:  :mrgreen:  :mrblue: But I think Annie Taylor is the best and it will always be my all time favorite episode. It is very memorable, exciting, and emotional all the way through. Missy gave us a win you could never forget.  :mrblue:  :mrblue:  :mrblue:  :mrblue:  :mrblue:

I'm also glad Lucky Pillow won. It's my favorite episode in the whole series and I'm glad to have been the one to declare it winner. ;) :mrblue: And I did the final blow without cheating or taking multiple turns too. How convenient. :mrblue:

(much higher, this should've been Top 10 in my opinion)
#29: "The Bonnet of Dolley Madison" (good)
#30: "The Pendant of Kamehameha" (good, it was a fun episode, but it wasn't THAT great)

#32: "King Tut's Cobra Staff" (good)
#33: "The Good-Luck Watch of Empress Eugenie" (a little higher)

#36: "The Two-Cornered Hat of Napoleon" (good)
#37: "The Bullet-Riddled Handbag of Belle Boyd" (good)

It looks like we feel the same way about most of these episodes. ;)

For episodes like Blackfeet Chief and Belle Boyd, I don't mind if they are in the top 40. They might be completely forgettable and boring, but they have a better outcome than 3/4 of the episodes on the show. So some filler episodes will make it to the top 40. ;)

I feel that Queen Boadicea deserves its ranking even if it is a little overrated. The Red Jaguars hardly have any good episode, and this is their one solid temple run after Catherine the Great. The earlier rounds were a little boring admittedly mostly due to Nate and Lissy's dominance. But I feel it deserves to be ranked higher.

Great Seal in top 10? Well, I wouldn't have a problem with that. One of the best examples of a classic episode. ;) But I would choose Discarded Seal first as a loss in the top 10. But both are great. :mrgreen: :mrsilver:

The only episode I feel that is missing is Red Sash. ;)

And I got this thread totally confused with the "Most memorable episodes" thread. So most of my thoughts might be a little skewed. :lol: Not to mention, that thread is almost done too. But yeah, I agree with almost all your rankings. ;) And I guess I was getting Great Seal confused with Galileo. The latter which totally needs to be praised and talked about more. :mrsilver: And I'm not sure if I would include Red Sash in the Top 40. I like that episode, but that's not the most memorable either. Plus, Brandy and Quentin made too many mistakes for my liking. Still a good episode though. But Discarded Seal is easily THE best loss ever. It was also the very first episode I ever saw, so it's extra nostalgic for me. So I would definitely include that in my Top 10 as well. :mrgreen:

I think I'm gonna redo my list. Since I wrote it thinking it was the "Memorable episode" thread.
