I gave Discarded Seal a 10!  :mrgreen: I don't care if this team lost in the temple, in my eyes they were one of the best teams. There is nothing for me to complain about in this run. Travis and Elisa were very fast and came close to winning with one of the toughest layouts ever. Plus, the temple run was very memorable and exciting. They got shafted with this layout and totally deserve a second chance. In my eyes, this was one of the best Green Monkeys runs even though they didn't win. ;) :mrgreen:

I thought your first episode was Billy the Kid? ;)

But yeah, I think Ivan the Terrible was one of the first episodes during the Nick GaS era. I remember it being on Youtube at least along with Bandit Queen. But damn, that is an excellent first choice. If this was anyone's first episode, they would think that no team had a chance to win in the temple. :afro:

Nope, it was Discarded Seal. It was my first ever episode, and one of the few on YouTube at the time, like you mentioned. ;) But yeah, it was an excellent first choice. Back in the old days of YouTube, even before this forum. Time flies. :o

I gave Lost Lariat a 6. This temple run had an easy layout, but Chris blew it by moving so slow and acting like a moron. He had more than enough time to reach the Lariat and bring it out, but he screws around. The run itself was riddled with mistakes by Colleen for missing a chance at a solo win, Kirk for giving useless advice as always, and Chris in general. :roll: At the same time though, I do find this run memorable and a little exciting for Colleen's speed. Disappointing run, but it still was pretty fun and memorable. ;)  :mrgreen:

I gave it a 6. Could've been a win, but Colleen, Chris, and even Kirk blew it. :roll:

Also, who do you blame more for the loss, Colleen or Chris? Or Kirk for that matter.

Here is the order I blame them:

1.) Chris
<large gap the size of football field>
2.) Kirk
3.) Colleen

Chris is the main person to blame for this loss. He had 2:30 to himself to bring the artifact out, but he moves so slow and gets lost in every single room. Even after grabbing the artifact with 53 seconds left, he doesn't even come close to bringing it out. -_- This was an easy layout, but Chris blew his load. Even if he followed Kirk's advice to take the bottom floor, 53 seconds was more than enough time if he put his ass into gear. I mean David from "Lawrence of Arabia" got his artifact out in 25 seconds and he had one less room than Chris to run through.

Next is Kirk. He really didn't know what he was talking about in Season 1. I know it was like a "spur of the moment" thing, but taking the bottom floor was just useless advice. Luckily, he is a little more intelligent in the later seasons.

Finally, I believe that Colleen deserves some blame too. I mean if she looked at the Treasure Room bar for a second longer, then she would've seen the door open AND get a solo shot. But in her defense though, the bar was sort of delayed in opening too. So its not like she was completely oblivious.

I blame 95% of this loss on Chris, 4% on Kirk, and 1% on Colleen. This run should've been a win easily, but Chris just ruined it big time.  :roll:  :oops:

Yeah, that pretty much covers it. I blame Chris for this loss too. Actually, this run doesn't deserve a 6. It deserves a 5. :roll:

I would've given it a 5 too but I like how this is one of the very few runs where you can argue that more than one person was responsible for this loss. Hell, it was one of the very rare times where you can even blame Kirk. :o At least it is not like runs like "Enormous Feather" or "Anne Bonny" where Karisa and David were the obvious losers in those runs. Even though Chris was most to be blamed for the "Lost Lariat" loss. But still, you can argue that Colleen and Kirk also played a factor too.  ;)

David was responsible for the Enormous Feather loss? ;)

But yeah, I agree. This was one of those runs where both players (even Kirk!) were equally responsible for this loss. Of course, Chris was to blame THE most, like mentioned above. But like you said, Colleen and Kirk played a factor too. And Kirk can be blamed for A LOT of things in Season 1. I mean, more often than not, he just did not know what he was talking about. :afro:
