I gave William Tell a 1. To me this is the worst Green Monkeys run on the show, no questions asked. :roll: There was nothing redeeming about this run. It featured an incompetent team, a really tough layout, an annoying ass screamer, and quite possibly the worst Season 3 player ever. :roll: I don't care how hard this layout was, Lauren and Brett were an awful team. Even Thomas and Veronica made more progres than these two. And let's not forget that Lauren had a full minute to herself, and she doesn't even make any progress. -_______________- I hate this temple run with a passion, and Lauren was one of the worst players ever!  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:

I'm also giving this a straight 1. Brett was a slowpoke, Lauren was a hosebeast. Easily one of the, if not THE worst Green Monkey temple run ever. :roll:

Haha thanks. I got it from another site. It just rolls off the tongue so much. I love that word. It's another way of saying "bitch." :lol:

And it looks like this run gets a solid, unanimous 1. It deserves it though, it's just a pathetic run. :roll:

I gave Mussel-Shell Armor a 9. This was one of the best runs on the show because it featured Gator!  :mrgreen: Seriously, Gator was amazing and it is awesome just watching him rip up the temple. I REALLY wanted to give this run a 10, but I gave it a 9 for a couple of reasons. First off, I feel that Amanda gets too much credit for this win. Don't get me wrong, she was a decent player and very supportive of Gator, but I don't feel like she deserves much credit for this win. She was lucky that Gator was blazing fast in the temple. Second, I have seen this win many times so it sort of rubbed off on me. Just like "Bandit Queen", I love both runs to death but it is more about their male partners than both players. I am saving a "10" for a run like "Pirate Captain". ;)  :mrgreen:

Also gave it a 9, for same reasons.

Also, who do you prefer more? Gator or Zac? Just wondering.

Tough choice between Gator and Zac. I mean both players were awesome and the sole reason their team won in the temple. And both were just awesome. And both players looked like cool people to hang around. If I had to choose one though, I liked Zac's episode better. Especially after reading his interviews and how big of a baby Jackie and Russel were. And Russel reminded me of the Green Monkeys from Silk Sash. :afro: So I choose Zac for this one. ;)

Apanuugpak finishes with a solid 9. I counted Brent's vote as a 9 too. ;)

Next up is "The Dried Ear of Corn of Sojourner Truth"  :mrgreen:

I gave Dried Ear of Corn a 5. I chose this episode because I actually watched it today. :P And my opinion of this episode has changed too. In the past, I use to think it was just an average loss where it featured an average team. But now I find this episode pretty disappointing. Eddie was slow in the temple (Fast Eddie? Are we watching Belle Boyd or Sojourner Truth? :roll:). And Tess was a lost cause. She looked lost in half of her rooms and had significant trouble with the Silver Monkey. I don't understand how people can hate on Ashlie from Dolley Madison when she was far more redeemable than Tess. Ashlie at least hauled ass in the temple and was doing great until the Dark Forest. But Tess was slow and clueless from the start. Boring and forgettable run. I know I am not watching this one again. :roll:

Yeah, also gave it a 5 for the same reasons. Eddie (who was NOT AT ALL fast) and Tess were very dominant pre temple, but completely blew it in the temple run. I totally agree that Ashlie from Dolley Madison gets crapped on WAY too much for her confusion in the Dark Forest. Yet everyone feels sorry for Tess for doing exactly the same thing. I basically second everything Stone Marker said above. Because he hit the nail on the head. The temple run was not only disappointing, it was extremely boring. Nothing special whatsoever. Oh, and it was paired up with Cricket Cage too during the "20 episode cycle" Nick Gas days. So.... whoo hoo? :oops: :roll:

I guess it was only fitting for this episode to be paired with Golden Cricket Cage. Two episodes I know I will never watch again.  :oops: It was disappointing too because Tess and Eddie were pretty good before the temple like you mentioned. Even if Ashlie wasted more time in the Dark Forest than Tess, at least you can tell she attempted to try and find the correct key. It's not like she didn't know what to do, she just didn't know where to put the key. Tess moved slow and got lost in every room. One of the most boring runs ever. O_o

Then maybe you should've done Cricket Cage for the Silver Snakes thread instead of Silk Ladder. Now THAT would be fitting. :afro: And yeah, Dried Ear of Corn was a boring temple run and episode from start to finish. Throughout the entire episode, it just had that boring "feel" to it. Where every round was bland, uneventful, and just seemed to drag on forever. I remember I screencapped this episode a few months ago. And even then, I was just waiting for the episode to be over. If it's one thing positive that I can say, I guess it's better than Cricket Cage. But that's already a given. O_O
