I gave the Monster Monkey a 4. I know this run had a pretty lousy team, but I will admit that this run is very entertaining and memorable. Kate was a pretty mediocre front runner despite being so hyped to be in the temple. And Larry was just a lost cause and he failed miserably with the Silver Monkey. Even after spending over a minute on it, he still didn't come close. -_- But as I mentioned earlier, I actually find this run amusing and entertaining. Kate's cheering, Larry's retarded running, and the Monster Monkey make this run very memorable.  :mrblue:

I also gave it a 4. Kate was fun to watch, but Larry ruined everything. This run was way too disappointing for me. :roll:

I gave Lost Gold Mine a 10! This was one of my all time favorite wins on the show, and Jennifer and Jammin John were a solid team that would've won almost any run in Season 1! :mrblue: This run was just amazing for a lot of reasons - Kirk's Fogg-Ups and enthusiasm, strong team effort, Jennifer's tarp slip, and the strong team win. No matter what people say about this run, I will always think highly of it. One of the best Blue Barracudas episodes ever! :mrblue:  :mrblue:  :mrblue:  :mrblue:  :mrblue:

That's the spirit! 'Tis the season to be charitable. :mrred: :mrgreen: Even for runs like this that always get accolades. :mrblue:

I always think of Shaka Zulu when I think of Christmas.  :mrred:  :mrred:  :mrred:  :mrred:  :mrred:  :mrred:  :mrred:  :mrred:  :mrred:  8)

And that is it for the Barracudas thread! Map to the Lost Gold Mine finishes with a 9.75.  :mrblue: I will post the rankings later for how each run ranked. I think I am going to cover the Silver Snakes next. Maybe I should just skip over Golden Cricket Cage though?  :afro:  :P

We're done with the Blue Barracudas thread? I thought there were 19 runs.... =/

And I definitely support covering the Silver Snakes next. Maybe Cricket Cage can come first. Since you love that run so much. :afro:

How did I mess that up? Now I am kind of upset because I would've saved John Sutter for the last episode to be rated.  :cry:

But you're right, I missed at least two runs. The next one we will cover is "The Electrified Key of Benjamin Franklin". :mrblue:

Episode: "The Electrified Key of Benjamin Franklin"
Artifact Location: Throne Room
Players: Michelle and Peter
Pendants: 1
Outcome: Out of Time!

I gave Electrified Key a 7. Looking back now, it was pretty disappointing for this team not to win. I mean every other team that day had great wins, and Peter and Michelle had a chance to share the same fame but they blew it on a pretty easy bottom of the central shaft layout. The main problem was Peter who just could not stay away from the direct path. -_- Seriously Peter, do you really think the Throne Room was going to open that easily? Did you watch Shaka Zulu before this run? I do admit though that I still enjoy this run despite the flaws. Peter and Michelle were a good team, but they made some pretty glaring mistakes. It was still watchable though and memorable too. Too bad they didn't win or else we would've had back-to-back legendary Blue Barracudas wins. :barracudas2:

Yeah, too bad. That would've been the perfect way to close out this thread. Just like we did with our episode review project. :afro: :mrblue:

And I gave Electrified Key a 6. Disappointing run. Should've been a legendary win, and a 4-on-4 day. But Peter blew it by taking the direct path. And he did it twice too. Too bad, all those mistakes were so preventable too.

I definitely agree that those mistakes shouldn't have happened. I bet if Michelle went into the temple first, then it would've been a solo victory. She was smart enough to avoid Medusa's Lair when entering the Observatory. This is assuming she doesn't enter the Crypt as her entrance room. I think I am going to lower my score to a 6 though just because of the glaring mistakes. Good run, but too much wasted potential.
