Rate the Silver Snakes run - Day 12: The Codebook of Mata Hari
« on: December 05, 2014, 05:27:01 PM »
Since we have done one for 4/6 teams, we should me onto the Silver Snakes! Same rules as other topics where you rate the runs on a scale of 1-10. ;) I think this team might be the most interesting due to how God Awful some of their runs are and also have a few gems too.

Previous Results:
"John Henry's Lost Hammer": 1.75 (4 votes)
"The Ruby Earring of Benzibab": 7.50 (4 votes)
"The Golden Earring of Henry Morgan": 8.20 (5 votes)

I gave John Henry a 2. This is one of the worst temple runs ever on the show and for the Silver Snakes too! It featured one of the most clueless runners ever too. Kim was an utter moron and she did not know how to... press a button. O_O You know, that big circle near the door? She was so bad that even the producers felt it was time for her to leave the temple. :roll: Nick was an okay second runner, and he moved a little slow and spent too much time in the Spider's Lair. But with little time that Kim left him, he did make it pretty far. This run was a huge disaster and I was so close to giving it a 1. But Nick sort of says this run and I think Golden Cricket Cage and Mt. Kilimanjaro are slightly worse. Still a lost cause run though.  :roll:

Another two here. The only thing that saves it from getting a 1 is Billy. And even he wasn't that great either. :roll:

I will definitely take Lost Hammer over Golden Cricket Cage and even Snow Cone.  :oops: At least Billy almost made it looked like the team had a chance. He technically finished two rooms away despite all the time wasted in this episode. But let's move on from this awful temple run. Lost Hammer finishes with a 1.75. :oops:

Next up is "The Ruby Earring of Benzibab".  :mrsilver:

Episode: "The Ruby Earring of Benzibab"

I gave BENZIBAB!111!!11! an 8. It was a pretty enjoyable win that featured a strong team. Kevin and Annie finishing with over a minute left is no fluke. Although they can sort of thank the producers for giving them an easy layout. But still, they won it fair and square and the win was enjoyable. But the temple run is still a little overrated though. I like Sultan Saladin, Cannonball, and Bandit Queen better anyways. ;)

I personally gave it a 7. Quite frankly, this run is overrated. Sure Kevin and Annie were fast, but this layout was handed to them on a silver platter. I prefer Jeweled Scabbard over this episode. Sorry, I just don't like this run. It's overrated. =/

I prefer Benzibab over Sforza win's, but not by much. But yeah, this run is overrated. I am surprised how many people have it in their top 10? I mean none of the fast wins impressed me on the show. I love Gaileo, Sultan Saladin, and Bandit Queen much better than this run. Zac was much more impressive than Kevin too.  :mrsilver:

I agree, especially since Zac had MUCH less time on the clock. I honestly prefer close finishes to wins where the teams win in plenty of time. It just seems too easy to me. I also agree that the likes of Bandit Queen, Sultan Saladin, and Galileo were better. :mrsilver:

And when you think about it, Kevin and Annie's win had a much easier layout than Sforza's win. Lacey and Asher had to descend the central shaft, which featured the hardest rooms of Season 3. No way the Silver Snakes finish over a minute with that layout. I definitely like Bandit Queen's win over Benzibab's too. And I have changed my mind on Bandit Queen too. I don't feel that it is overrated anymore. It deserves all the praise it gets.  :mrsilver:

Bandit Queen is a fantastic win. :mrsilver: I loved it from Day 1 and it was one of the very first episodes I ever saw. :mrsilver:

Benzibab.... well Annie and Kevin won in quick time. And you're right, no way would they have finished with over a minute left on the clock if they got Sforza's layout instead. Sforza's layout was even harder, like you said. Sorry kamehameha, but I just don't care about Benzibab. ;)
