I gave Lost Logbooks a 3. What a boring and piss poor temple run. Jessica was a horrible excuse for a second runner. :roll: I don't care whether this run ended in triple capture or not, it blew pretty hard. Even if it didn't end in triple capture, the temple run still would've been a loss. Jessica was a lost cause and ruined this run for me. I forget that it even exists too. -_-

I gave Dr. Livingstone a 6. It was a boring and average win. To this day, I always forget that this episode is a win. The win itself was just plain average, and Tabitha and Brett were even lucky to win. At the end of the day, they did get the job done. But I could care less about their win though and there were a lot of better Blue Barracuda runs out there. :?

Another 6. Another yawner. Metal Beard and Secret Map were better.

I gave Mummified Hand a 7. I actually like this temple run despite the disappointing outcome. It was very memorable and unique, and it also had a strong performance. Sarah and Josh were a good team, but lost because of both a situation out of their control and because of a brutal mistake. On one hand, I kind of sympathize with the team because I feel that the pendant drop sort of messed up their strategy and if it never happened, then the outcome would've been better. On the other hand, Josh brought it onto himself by pulling a "Harriet Tubman" and taking the high road with less than a full pendant. So the outcome was mostly Josh's fault. Overall though, I liked this team and they did a solid effort in the temple. And the temple run is pretty exciting and quirky too. Kin of like Great Seal and Kamehameha where the outcome was disappointing, but the team made it an enjoyable run. ;)

Once again with the Fogg Ups. It's Maggie, NOT Sarah.

And I gave them a 6. Boring run, besides the pendant dropping. Seriously, there was nothing special about this run AT ALL. It was memorable sure, but still rather boring everything else aside. I don't blame Maggie for the pendant dropping. That was an accident. Either way, could've been a win, but Josh blew it by taking an alternative route. And this run is as exciting as Kamehameha and Great Seal? I don't know, that's going too far, but your mileage may vary. Great Seal and Kamehameha are in two different leagues. MUCH different leagues than this run. Pendant dropping aside, this temple run was really dull. I don't care how strong the team was. :roll:

I gave Stone Head a 2. In the past, I would've shown this run some sympathy because four snakes Medusa was pretty unfair and challenging. But now, I completely hate this run. :roll: Why? Heather and Tony only made it through 5 rooms in 3 minutes. They were slow and a clueless team. Tony in particular was very mentally challenged. It should NOT have taken him over a minute to complete Medusa's Lair. Whitney didn't even have as much trouble as him. :? And then he breaks the pots in the King's Storeroom like a moron. Overall, this was a bad team and a piss poor temple run. And to think they swept the temple games too. :roll:

I gave them a 3. Classic example of wasted potential here. All thanks to Tony. :roll: Heather should've gone in second. :roll:

I was a little more sympathetic and gave it a 4 because of crazy Medusa and because Heather was a pretty decent player.
