Yeah, and their scared reactions to the temple guards were priceless too. :mrsilver: While we're on the subject of temple guards, I love how Kirk says "Shane is Ghandi" when Jackie is wading her way through the Swamp. I don't know what that's supposed to mean, but I guess Kirk thinks words like "gone" and "ghandi" sound a lot alike. :P

Kirk says a lot of random nonsense in Season 1. He was out of control in the Alhambra run. :lol: I guess he was trying to be witty with the "Ghandi" phrase, but it makes no sense at all. At least he was better at it in the later seasons. ;)

Oh he was way worse in the Alhambra run. :shock: I mean, "She pulls up her socks because she's a cool customer," and "What a tangle web we weave!" Kirk sounded so normal in the Oracle Bowl run in comparison to Alhambra. :lol: His hosting definitely got better in the latter two seasons. ;)

And with a solid 3 average, time to end the poll for "The Oracle Bowl of Delphi." :oops:

Up next is "The Snakeskin Boots of Billy the Kid." :mrpurple:

I gave this run an 8. Just like I said in the wins thread, this was a great win! :mrpurple: It was nice to see the Purple Parrots at long last score a much needed victory. Who cares if Tony took too long exiting the temple? That was just one mistake, it's not like he was Jason from Icarus, who was clueless from the start. Furthermore, this was PP Pwnage all the way. First with Leopard Skin Cloak, (the episode before them), and then this one. What more could you ask for? This was a great win, and Kelly and Tony deserved to win. :mrpurple:

I gave Billy the Kid an 8 also. One of the Purple Parrots most special wins on the show. It took more than half of the show for the Parrots to get their first win, and it came from one of the most dominant teams ever! Kelly and Tony's layout may have been easy, but that doesn't stop it from getting a good score. The "Purple Parrot Pwnage" story and them getting their first win in dominating fashion is what makes this run really memorable. And the ending was pretty exciting too. The Purple Parrots should've got a win a lot sooner, but this one was a special for them. ;)  :mrpurple:

This win was definitely special for the Parrots. If they did win sooner however, then this win would feel a lot less special. And then nobody would recognize this win as much as they do now. So it was good that the Parrots got this win when they did. ;)

And by the way, I've got the rest of the Purple Parrot episodes listed in the OP. The order will go like this:

Day One - "The Bone Necklace of the Blackfeet Chief"
Day Two - "The Oracle Bowl of Delphi"
Day Three - "The Snakeskin Boots of Billy the Kid"
Day Four - "The Sacred Ring of Sultan Suleiman"
--
--
Day Five - "King Tut's Cobra Staff"
Day Six - "The Leopard-Skin Cloak of Annie Oakley"
Day Seven - "The Golden Pepperoni of Catherine de' Medici"
Day Eight - "The Upside-Down Compass of Henry Hudson"
Day Nine - "The Metal Beard of the Egyptian Queen"
Day Ten - "The Lost Lion Tail of Little John"
Day Eleven - "The Milk Bucket of Freydis"

All of this figured out via RNG list generator. I figured I'd save Freydis for the best for last. Just like Lawrence of Arabia is saved for best for last in the wins thread. Both one second wins too, go figure. :lol: So King Tut will be the next one covered after Sacred Ring. This is also listed in the OP, but I thought I might post the list here too. I think this is a good enough order here, don't you think? ;)

I gave this run a 3. Why must some of these runs suck so much? :oops: Brian completely blew the whole run at the beginning, by detouring into the Ledges. And then he doesn't even signal back the half pendant for Gracelyn. Plus, he screamed like a girl when he was taken out of the temple. Gracelyn wasn't much better unfortunately. While she was a little more competent than Brian, she moved much too slowly. And it didn't help that she passed up the half pendant too. Though I don't blame her for that, it was completely Brian's fault for not signaling back. If it's one positive thing I can say, this is the only triple capture the Purple Parrots had. And boy was this run painful to watch. This whole run was 100% Brian's fault. :roll:

I gave Sultan Suleiman a 2. This run was a pretty big disaster. Too many mistakes were made, and triple capture was not the biggest problem. Brian and Gracelyn were too slow and clueless. Especially Brian. All he had to do was try all three books in the Crypt and the outcome wouldn't have happened in the first place (not to mention he would save time too.) :roll: He also made the bone-headed mistake of not signaling the half-pendant back to Gracelyn. Gracelyn was no prize herself either because she could've found the half-pendant too and she moved slow. I think triple capture was a blessing in disguise for this team. :roll: The only reason I didn't give it a 1 because it was better than Lost Lion Tail. :oops:

And we have now officially caught up with the old thread. :mrpurple: Hopefully this one lasts a little longer. ;)
