The Heart Room / I've always wondered

Olmec's Terrace? Terrace of the Temple? I don't know... It was never referred to in the show.

I remember Pumping GaS, specifically watching "The Golden Stallion of Ali Baba" with my neighbor at 1 in the morning when he slept over. 3 times out of the 4?! Bizzare! Wow, I really want to see the Walking Stick of Harriet Tubman!

How about this... I'll post a special request for it on my website, and see if GaS catches on and anything happens.

Wait, did we forget about Tarrah's(?) great collision in The Milk Bucket of Freydis? With only a small amount of time left, she tried jumping clear across the pit without using the rope. She collided with the rock on the stage-right side of the room, and supposedly broke the bucket itself in doing so. Of course the run was also memorable for its 'one-second-left'-ness

SWEET! STP (Same Time Post)!!!!! First one on the forums? We'll make a mental note of that.
Congratulations to the both of us. :) I'm counting these posts from now on... "1."

Yeah, that was classic in The Mask of the Man in the Iron Mask. If the wall wouldn't break & was locked???

If the wall wouldn't break, his neck would. Of course, the wall is made up of foam bricks, so it couldn't ever be that bad.

Kirk also had a tendency to make the contestents feel absolutely terrible at the end of a game that was already embarrassing for them. If a contestant slipped down the ramp, he'd always go on and on about "Oh, you were SO close, but you just had to slip down... You almost got to the top, but you lost your footing. That's TOO BAD..."

I don't know if Kirk was trying to make them feel bad, but what he said made me feel sorry for the kids!

There was one time during the Steps in Season 1 (I think) where one of the contestants rang in, cutting Olmec off, and then began to describe a gigantic portion of the story (probably three answers in one!). Before this guy finished his lecture of an answer, Olmec snapped, "That is NOT one of the three choices" in a truly "shut up, already!" sort of tone. That was memorable, even if I can't place the episode. :lol:

There was a dodging of sorts in The Iron Nose Ring of Babe the Ox, where a tree should have caught Joel as he raced through the room. If it would have been any other contestant intending to break through the wall, the guard would have caught him or her for sure.

There was also that episode where the contestant dove head-first under the limbs of the tree, just in case. I wonder if that would have counted as a dodge should there have been a temple guard in the trees he evaded?

It has already been mentioned, but the escape from the temple in the "Applewood Amulet" episode was absolutely classic, and then Kirk's ecstatic SHE MADE IT! at the end. Sure, the temple was easy, but the outcome was memorable as could be.

The Heart Room / Season 3 Golden Moments

There were a bunch of good episodes in Season 3, but those have been named already, for the most part.

One thing I'll remember is the anticlimactic third temple game in "Sforza." (What an incredible match! Zero to zero!)

EDIT: I also forgot about the "Mummified Hand" episode. The only time a player EVER held more than 1 pendant.

"The Map to the Lost Gold Mine" in general. A trillion Fogg-Ups, miscounting of the temple games, and the icing on the cake: the girl slipping on the precariously-placed sheet on the studio floor shortly before passing through the gates for the win.

That "log-taking" is exactly what I did to complete my episode list, except I did not write the players' names down. The last episode I had to log was "The Mysterious Manuscript of Mary Shelley," although you "picked," so-to-speak, a good last episode to watch. The temple run was bizarre!

What seems odd, yet interesting to me... well, it'll take a bit of set-up...

1. Nick GaS used to have Pumping GaS sections in the morning and at night; each showed the same episode for the day.
2. They also had two other episodes shown during the remainder of the day that were different than the Pumping GaS ones.
3. Whether it was coincidence or whether it was planned, I don't know, but they showed The Manuscript episode three times out of the four Legends slots one of the days soon after I put episode #119 on my site. I didn't recall that three of the same episode a day had ever been done before.

I have a suspicion that the operators of Nick GaS specifically chose that episode to air because it was the last to be added to my episode list.

I'll never know, though. :wink:

And a pretty unrelated note: Did anybody notice, during the 100th anniversary of flight a year or two ago, GaS showed "The Broken Wing of Icarus?" I love seeing that creativity. :D

In "The Ruby Earring of Benzibab", when Kevin is running across the Pit of the Pendulum, Kirk says "he has the watch!" Does this mean that this episode was filmed the same day as "The Good-Luck Watch of Empress Eugenie"? I've wanted to e-mail nicklegends about this, so he could put it in his website (The King's Storeroom), but I didn't want to give away personal information, like my name & stuff, but now that nicklegends is able to see this, it's all settled.

Just for reference, you don't need to share a word of personal information with me if you want to submit something to the site. The single thing you DO need is an alias of sorts to go by. Some people choose to give their names, others (like "El Short Guy") simply choose a different name so they can be identified. E-mail me if you'd like to "officially" submit that to the site. :wink:

The Heart Room / Olmec's Temple Run Strategies!

After grabbing the artifact, just go straight across the top of the three-tier level. DON'T GO DOWN! YOU'RE GOING TO LOSE! Aw, too late.

Oh, yeah, only listen to Kirk shout orders during the run 50% of the time.
I remember one time, it was faster for the kid to go through The Chamber of the Sacred Markers, so sometimes the second tier might be best

But consider your options! You can either get down on your hands and knees and crawl through two tiny doors, or you could bound up and down two small sets of stairs. I'd instinctively take the top-most route.

Another thing, I hate it when, for example, an artifact is hidden in the center room. They (almost) always press that actuator - its not going to open, moron! Or in the interview for one of the episodes, I cant remember which. The artifact was in the Throne Room (season 1). The girl said she was going to run into the ledges, go into the pit, and then go straight in the throne room and get the artifact.



Naturally, they didn't get the artifact.

Yeah, but then there are the times when it does work exactly as the teams plan (Shaka Zulu).

Also, "The Temple of the Ancient Kings" and "The Ledge of Size." He said both of those in the SAME temple run! (Map to the Lost Gold Mine)

He didn't only mess up on the room names, though--there were always gems sprinkled throughout the episode ("Dreaded Temple Games" comes to mind). Also, we can't forget the now-somewhat-famous quote, "The Key to this Game is... the Key."

I've always called them "Fogg Quotes," but I love your title, "Fogg-Ups." I'll have to start using that term more often now. :wink:
