I gave the episode with a really long title a 7. I thought this was a good temple run despite the mistakes both players made. At least Jonathan and Olivia reached a center of the temple artifact, which was not easy in Season 3. But they really should've won too. Olivia wasted too much time in the Pit and Jonathan should've saw the door open the first time in the Ancient Warriors. It was still a pretty exciting run and good effort. And I like how this is one of the very few runs where you can make an argument that either player was responsible. ;)

Next up is "William the Conqueror".  :mrgreen: (The Paintbrush said she will type the episode title out for me. ;)  :afro: )
No, I will not Mr. Lazy Pants. ;)

And I gave this run a 6. Honestly, I don't like this run at all. This could've been an easy win if Olivia didn't waste time in the Pit. And if Jonathan had paid more attention to the Room of the Ancient Warriors door. I don't know, I find this run frustrating. Am I the only one who thinks this run is overrated? =/

6 felt too low to me, but 7 feels to high. Sigh. I decided to be generous and give it a 7.

I don't know if I will exactly call it overrated. I always have seen Battle Flag get its fair share of criticism everytime it is brought up. I personally don't have a problem with this run except that it was a little boring. And that Nick GaS enjoyed playing it A LOT.  :afro:

I gave Chandragupta a 9! An almost perfect run which featured a solid player that was one of the best on the show. Andrea's run was very enjoyable and is sometimes overlooked in place of more praised and controversial wins. I honestly have nothing bad to say about her run or performance. It is a run that deserves all the love it deserves. It is a little on the forgettable side, but still one of the best Green Monkeys performances! :mrgreen:

I honestly gave this run a perfect 10. It deserves it, as far as I'm concerned, this temple run was perfect. :mrgreen: You go Andrea! :mrgreen:

No problems with me seeing people give Chandragupta a 10!  :mrgreen: It totally deserves and it is one of the best solo wins ever. The only reason I didn't give it a 10 because I think it goes to runs like Pirate Captain and Lawrence of Arabia. ;)  :mrgreen: And Chandragupta finishes with a 9.50.  :mrgreen:

I gave Lost Taj Mahal Turban a 5. It was a very boring run featuring an average team. Even though it ended in triple capture, there was very little time on the clock and it is not like they were going to win. Although Dean should've moved faster and Chrystine should've found that half-pendant. I don't mind this triple capture though. Much better than Robert the Bruce at least.  :afro:

I gave Imperial Purple Robe a 6. Ashley and Josh came close to reaching their artifact, but there is nothing to say about this run except they both moved too slow. People blame the elevator for them failing to reach the artifact, but if they moved faster in the first place they would've had more than enough time. I mean Ashley is almost as slow as Kerry from Cracked Crown.  :shock: It was just an average temple run with an average team at the end of the day.
