The first one, when the producers expected way too much.  It was just too hard to take in, though all the mishaps were rather comical.

It's so true, but the crew deserved a bad episode for not shooting a pilot of any form prior to the first episode.

At the very least, they could have tested it.  Actually, there was a Kirk Fogg interview in which he said he tested the temple once before every season.

Actually, if I recall, he also said that he didn't have to deal with guards.

Kirk, while he said he didn't, had a better grasp on the objective than the kids did (not to mention the strength to get him to the artifact and out), so it's not a perfect comparison, but I can see your point. (I wonder if Dee Baker got to run through it as well?)

If Kirk did, Dee might have, but I wouldn't bet on it.  And yeah, Kirk had an exponentially greater idea of what he had to do.  But, I suppose if the kids had paid attention, run through it verbally and in their heads, they could have done as well as Kirk.

And as a little bonus, they also had Kirk's infinite wisdom.  "The door's unlocked!" and stuff like that.

EDIT:  Kirk may have been physically stronger, but that doesn't mean he had better cardiovascular fitness.  He hosted a game show, probably worked out occasionally, but most of the kids claimed roots in sports, which would require periodic workouts and practices.

That said, it's possible some of the kids had deeper gas tanks, if you will.

Deeper gas tanks do no good when you're filled with crap.

Let's say the artifact is in the king's storeroom.  Player A gets taken out in the shrine.  Player B has to sprint across the bottom floor, around the horn (through the slide) and back.  Of course they get time to catch their breaths, but notice how many are panting and catching their breath at the end.

Yeah, but how many people go slow because of fatigue?

The people that are slow, are the tentative ones, for the most part.

Yeah, just like Karisa from the 'Enourmous Feather' was. Slow and tentative...not a good combination at all.

For the most part, yes, but there are many instances in which a player just burns out.  Tries keeping a pace his body won't accept.

I hate the broken wing of icarus.  I hate short steps of knowledge and the silver snakes swept it with the green monkeys to follow.  And Jason could've easily won in the temple if he just didn't make so many mistakes like not realizing the door to Jester's court opened from the King's Storeroom.

At least the Temple Games in "The Broken Wing of Icarus" were exciting with it coming down to a tiebreaker.  The Temple Run was still exciting; even though it had a disappointing outcome, it was still very close to being a win.
