The Sacred Ring of Sultan Suleiman

Brian
Moat: 6.5
SoK: 8
Individual Temple Game: 5.5
Team Temple Game: 8.25
Temple Run: 4
Average: 6.45

Gracelyn
Moat: 6.5
SoK: 7.5
Individual Temple Game: 8
Team Temple Game: 7.75
Temple Run: 4.5
Average: 6.85

Overall Team Average: 6.65

Notes
The overall team average might look like a decent score, but in all honesty, just like the Lost Lion Tail team average, this really wasn't that good of an episode. The Purple Parrots in this episode just seemed weak and small and it showed in the temple. For the most part, they were okay before the temple. However, I think we saw their true colors (please no Purple Parrot jokes for that comment!) once the temple run began. Brian made that critical mistake of not trying all three books in the Crypt and it cost him more than any other player who failed to pull all books. Gracelyn was slightly better, but not by much. Not finding that half pendant proved costly too. The only PP run to end in guard capture. End of story. Things can only get better from here.


The Leopard-Skin Cloak of Annie Oakley

Chandra
Moat: 8.75
SoK: 5.5
Individual Temple Game: 9.5
Team Temple Game: 8
Temple Run: 7.5
Average: 7.85

Nick
Moat: 9.25
SoK: 9
Individual Temple Game: 8.75
Team Temple Game: 7.75
Temple Run: 6.75
Average: 8.3

Overall Team Average: 8.08

Notes
Wow, what can you say? One of the best Legends teams NOT to grab their respective artifact. This team was great for the most part. In the SoK, I gave Chandra a 5.5 for at least trying to ring in once. Concerning this score, I also took into account how competitive this SoK pairing was. It could've gone either way. Both players were great in the temple games. Then came the temple run. What a heartbreaker this one was. Chandra was solid. I had to look at Shane's ranking I gave him from Very Tall Turban (I ranked him before all of these PP runs) and I had to give her the same ranking for taking the same path as Shane. Both players I felt were identical when taking the same path. Nick did a nice job tracing her steps. However, I had to dock him for pointlessly swinging on the pit rope and for putting the Storeroom key in the front railing. However, this was a great team that got stuck with a tough temple layout. Not taking shortcuts on Chandra's part didn't help either. Still, a great episode. Let's see if the next PP episode can top it.


The Snakeskin Boots of Billy the Kid

Kelly
Moat: 9
SoK: 5.5
Individual Temple Game: 9.5
Team Temple Game: 7.5
Temple Run: 6
Average: 7.5

Tony
Moat: 9
SoK: 9.5
Individual Temple Game: 8.5
Team Temple Game: 7.5
Temple Run: 8
Average: 8.5

Overall Team Average: 8

Notes
The Purple Parrots finally get that much deserved temple win. Just like Leopard-Skin Cloak and Chandra, I had to give Kelly a 5.5 in the SoK for trying once. Not to mention, Tony seemed to know it all in a sweep of the steps. Both players rocked the moat and temple games, especially Kelly in her temple game. That spitting horse was no match for her. Now for the temple run. I know I've criticized Kelly heavily for being clueless in her short stay, but after watching this run again, I have to be fair to her. Honestly, I don't think she was that bad. I mean, there are other players who got taken out three rooms into a run at around the same time she did (Olivia from Battle Flag and Maggie from Mummified Hand to name a few). Besides, THK gave Gabby (Golden Ship) a 6 and I think she was worse than Kelly. Still, I'm sticking with me giving Kelly a 6 for the temple. Tony on the other hand was fast and seemed more knowledgeable about the temple than Kelly. His exit plan wasn't that good, but at least he made it out in time. Jason (Broken Wing) can't say that.

Wow, Leopard-Skin Cloak got a slightly better ranking than Snakeskin Boots, just slightly. To be honest, I think the Leopard-Skin Cloak kids and the Snakeskin Boots kids were identical. Both of these two were solid episodes all around. Better than Sacred Ring, that's for sure. :roll:

I know I did a rankings for "The Bone Necklace of the Blackfeet Chief" during the database crash, but I don't have them saved anymore. Anyways, I think your rankings were close to mine. I remember clearly the Purple Parrots barely scrapping by the moat. However, they were much more competitive in later rounds. The temple games were also very close between both the Red Jaguars and Purple Parrots. But both Leah and Brandon still won two pendants at the end. As for the temple run, I think your scores are pretty reasonable. Leah wasn't a bad contestant, she was just too slow. I might've decreased Brandon's score to at least a "7" in the temple. He was kind of sluggish also and his exit plan was a little weird. Overall, they look similar to mine.

And "The Lost Lion Tail of Little John" is easily the worst Purple Parrot episode, worser than "Oracle Bowl" and "Sultan Suleiman".  That team didn't even deserve to go to the temple. I don't remember the exact details on the temple games, but a "7" for both players seems a little too kind IMO. Before the Silver Snakes dropped their sign, I recall that the Purple Parrots were lagging behind. But then the Silver Snakes dropped their sign, allowing the Purple Parrots an opportunity to reach the top easily. And for the temple run, I probably would've gave Marie a "5" in the temple. I mean she was kind of slow and missed a couple of rocks in the Rock Quarry. She was lucky to reveal the first light in the Laser Light Room. Claude was terrible though and it looked like he didn't have a single clue on what to do in the temple. I would've given him a "2.5", but I guess finding the half-pendant is the only redeeming thing about him. Second worst boy after John from "Cricket Cage".

I actually posted rankings for "Annie Oakley" and "Billy the Kid" though. I will come back later and compare my rankings wth PP319.  :mrpurple:

Well, the Sacred Ring kids were pretty weak, but they did decently during the temple games. I especially liked the temple game sequence where each story led right into the next game. If that makes any sense. While they were an IMMENSE improvement over the Lost Lion Tail kids, they still kind of sucked. The temple run is pretty terrible, and the path they took was pretty strange. But still, I blame Brian 100% for this loss. Not just for his detour into the Dark Forest, but for not signaling back the pendant to Gracelyn. Not that she was too much better though, since she moved much too slowly. If it's any consolation, this is the only triple capture by the Purple Parrots. At least they didn't have to endure anymore of those type of scenarios.

And enough has been said about Leopard Skin Cloak and Snakeskin Boots. PP Pwnage! And I think 6 is a decent score for Kelly for the temple run. She moved at a decent pace, but we never saw much of her since she only lasted 3 rooms. Tony was great too, even if he didn't have a stellar exit plan. The only difference between him and Jason is that Tony only faltered a bit at the end. Jason sucked the whole way through. But, both Purple Parrot teams did great, and it shows in their near identical team ratings.

And yes, you did review those aforementioned teams before, TRJ. Right here. Should be easier now comparing your rankings to the ones PP319 did. ;)

Looks like the Fogg-Ups have come to PPF now. Brian got lost in the Ledges. ;)

Let's end season 2! :mrpurple:

The Golden Pepperoni of Catharine de’ Medici

Chris
Moat: 8.5
SoK: 7.5
Individual Temple Game: 7.75
Team Temple Game: 8
Temple Run: 6.5
Average: 7.65

Aqila
Moat: 8.5
SoK: 7
Individual Temple Game: 7.5
Team Temple Game: 7.5
Temple Run: 5.25
Average: 7.15

Overall Team Average: 7.4

Notes
For the most part, this team was average all around. There's not much to say about them in the rounds before the temple except they were solid. The temple run was interesting to say the least. Chris didn't last long, but I felt that despite his short stay, he lasted long enough for me to know that he was a good player. He barely hesitated and didn't have brief moments of being clueless unlike Kelly. Therefore, I gave him a higher ranking. Aqila is where the run became kind of chaotic. She seemed to know what to do in the rooms, but was very hesitant in completing most of them and was kind of slow. On top of that, she passed up two important things: the half pendant (which she thankfully went back and got) and the artifact itself. Talk about being inattentive. The run itself wasn't bad, but it wasn't good either. As for the episode, I'd say it was good. The temple run is what drags it down. Let's see if the next PP episode doesn't disappoint.


The Milk Bucket of Freydis

Tarrah
Moat: 8.75
SoK: N/A (didn’t attempt to ring in, so no judging here)
Individual Temple Game: 7.75
Team Temple Game: 8.5
Temple Run: 8
Average: 8.25

Chris
Moat: 9
SoK: 9.5
Individual Temple Game: 8
Team Temple Game: 8.5
Temple Run: N/A (his partner did a solo run)
Average: 8.75 (damn! :o )

Overall Team Average: 8.5

Notes
YES! This was truly a great episode all around. It was fun to watch and it was exciting too. Both players were superb too. I thought they did great in the moat despite being 4th. Chris was very smart, almost sweeping the SoK on his own. Both players did a fine job in the temple games. As for the temple run, I thought Tarrah did great. Sure, she might not have been Gator fast. Sure, she took a wrong turn once. Sure, she fell into the pit. However, she didn't have to be Gator fast. She's not the only winner to have taken a wrong turn at least once in a run (Jennifer from Belly Button and Jarrid from Lost Hornpipe come to mind). She's also not the only winner to take a dive in the pit. In fact, all three Purple Parrots who brought out the item fell into the pit. These three made Jason from The Broken Wing of Icarus look like a jackass. Based on strength and determination alone, I gave Tarrah an 8 for the temple. She was just great and great to watch. Tarrah's deserving of this 8.

And this run gives us the best player and best team average so far. Chris got an outstanding 8.75 average and the team got an 8.5 average, by far the best in both categories. Definitely the highlight for the PPs in season 2 if you ask me.

Season 2 was fun. It had its lowlights and highlights, but I think the highlights were overpowering. Season 3 is next and it only has two runs. I'll do this some other time.

I knew I was forgetting something. It concerns the male Purple Parrot's temple games. Since both players are named Chris, I'll refer to Golden Pepperoni Chris as Chris1 and Milk Bucket Chris as Chris2.

In the temple game for Golden Pepperoni, both players had to climb up a pole and put four bricks into a basket at the bottom. Chris1 got all four bricks to the bottom first, but two bricks missed the basket. He got one of them in, but his opponent got his last brick in before Chris1 could. To me, I feel like Chris1 was cheated here.

Now, for the temple game Chris2 was in for The Milk Bucket of Freydis, he had to go from platform to platform and grab horns to put onto a helmet. While grabbing the horns, he also had to dodge swinging obstacles. Now this game ended in a 2-2 tie, but one of Chris2's horns fell off the helmet. However, unlike the bricks in Chris1's game, the horn that fell off in Chris2's game was counted despite coming off. Now I'm glad this was counted for obvious reasons, but I find this to be a little odd. The horn was counted, but not the bricks? Where's the consistency?

Just thought I'd bring this up.

You know, as few times the Purple Parrots have made it to the temple, they have had some pretty dominant teams in the temple games. "Billy the Kid", "Milk Bukcket", "Annie Oakley", and "Henry Hudson" had very strong performances in the temple games. And then, the "Blackfeet Chief" and "Oracle Bowl" team also won two pendants. I wonder what Purple Parrot team will average the most after you finish the season three runs? I am going to say Tarrah and Chris will probably have the highest. The Purple Parrots were very fun to watch in season two and that was no doubt their best season, minus "Lost Lion Tail" though.  ;)

Yeah, the Purple Parrots had a lot of dominant teams in the few times they went to the temple. Seriously, 6/11 of their temple appearances had the Parrots go to the temple with 2 pendants. That's pretty good, how many other teams achieved that? With the exception of "Sacred Ring," "Lost Lion Tail," and to an extent "King Tut's Cobra Staff," the Purple Parrots dominated nearly every round just to get to the temple. PP Pwnage indeed. :D

As far as the above rankings go, the Golden Pepperoni kids were a decent team, despite the huge mistake at the end of the run. Chris should have gone in second, and Aqila should have gone in first. Just so we wouldn't have to see much of her due to her being so slow. I kind of agree about Chris' temple game too. Chris probably would have won if he didn't keep dropping objects from that totem pole.

And the Milk Bucket kids were great. Aside from placing 4th in the moat, the Parrots dominated every round. And the Chris in this episode did GREAT! His 8.75 average is beyond deserved. And Tarrah was equally as great, nothing more needs to be said about her. I also agree about Chris' temple game here too. I guess the spotters just didn't have much consistency did that day.

Also, isn't it funny how there were 2 Purple Parrot Chris' on the same filming day? Where one player didn't last long in the temple, and the other didn't go in at all. While there were a lot of Chris' on the show, I still find it to be an interesting coincidence. :lol:

I think tonight will be the night that I finish ranking the Purple Parrots that made it to the temple. I remember watching Metal Beard's full episode (I'll re-watch it again), but I've never fully seen Upside-Down Compass (only the temple run). I might be in for a treat.

Alright, time to finish ranking the Purple Parrots! :mrpurple:

The Upside-Down Compass of Henry Hudson

Sherra
Moat: 8.5
SoK: 9.5
Individual Temple Game: 7.5
Team Temple Game: 8
Temple Run: 6.25
Average: 7.95

Derek
Moat: 8.5
SoK: N/A (no attempt to ring in)
Individual Temple Game: 8.75
Team Temple Game: 8
Temple Run: 6.5
Average: 7.94

Overall Team Average: 7.945

Notes
First time watching this entire episode and it was pretty good. The temple run leaves something to be desired, but it was still a good episode. Both players were solid in pretty much every round. Like quite a few players in the past, Derek didn't ring in or answer in the SoK, so no ranking for him there (trying to be fair). The temple run was decent. Sure, they didn't win and they made some mistakes, but it wasn't all that bad. I think the biggest problem in this run was that Sherra was kind of on the slow side. Sherra knew what she was doing, but she moved a little too slow. She also made the mistake of falling for the King's Storeroom temple guard trick after the temple guard appeared behind the Chamber of the Sacred Markers door. Derek corrected this mistake, but he also made the mistake of not entering the Chamber from the pit. He also dropped the belly of the Silver Monkey into the Dark Forest, but to be fair, he was in a rush and time expired. Still, a decent run and a pretty good episode overall. Both players were pretty much exactly identical and they almost achieved an overall ranking of 8. Now one more episode to go.


The Metal Beard of the Egyptian Queen

T.J.
Moat: 9
SoK: 9
Individual Temple Game: 6
Team Temple Game: 7.75
Temple Run: 8.5
Average: 8.05 +.5 (got the tiebreaker) = 8.55

Randy
Moat: 9
SoK: 7
Individual Temple Game: 7.25
Team Temple Game: 8.75
Temple Run: 8
Average: 8

Overall Team Average: 8.28

Notes
What a great way to close out this ranking project. I thought this episode was better than Upside-Down Compass. Both players here were solid too, but they kind of struggled with the temple games. T.J.'s game was the one where he and his opponent had to push two big boulders into these fake forts. He didn't even knock down one and he just wasn't pushing those boulders hard enough. However, that is a tough game and I gave him a 6 for giving a good effort and not quitting. Randy was better in her game, but she also lost. Her game was the one where she was in a catapult-like mechanism. She had to grab toy animals on top of a high column and then put them into a zoo-like cage on the ground. Randy struggled to get high up into the air and kind of slowed down near the end. I was generous and gave her a 7.25 for her game. In the final game, things weren't looking good, especially at the end. The game was the one where Melted Head Jennifer faceplanted the swinging boulder. In this episode, both teams had three points with less then ten seconds remaining. Things weren't looking good, but Randy came through at the very last moment and got the win to tie up the pendant scores. Then T.J. came through and got the only Purple Parrot tiebreaker win. With that, I added 0.5 to his overall score. I worry if that's too much. Should I go less with the tiebreaker?

The temple run was great. It was the best Purple Parrot team effort in the temple. T.J. laid down a great path for Randy with plenty of time left. He was fast and smart! Randy didn't disappoint either. She followed his path very nicely en route to the Metal Beard. Then came her exit strategy. Oh man, that wasn't good at all and it almost turned into disaster. At least she made it out despite that Jason-like exit plan. I gave her Tony's temple score because I felt her stay in the temple matched Tony's stay. Still, what a great way to end the ranking process! The Purple Parrots ended their temple runs on a very high note.

Soon I will post comparisons for all of the PP episodes and see which players and which episode was the best.

Well, we've reached the end of Purple Parrot runs. And both your above teams did pretty well too.

Upside Down Compass was an alright episode, PP Pwnage until the temple run. The only problem was that Sherra did move pretty slow. Even if she had entered the Room of the Ancient Warriors, she still would have been taken out. Derek was okay, he should have taken the Pit-chamber door though. That certainly would have saved some time. And of course we got the poorly edited "epic fail" in the shrine at the end. Not that it would have mattered, since time was up anyways. Overall, this wasn't a bad temple run at all. It's not as terrible as people make it out to be. It was just a tough layout and slow players.

And Metal Beard was a great episode. GREAT comeback by TJ and Randy in that third temple game. They literally won that game at the last seconds. And of course this is the ONLY time they win a tiebreaker. And the temple run was amazing. One of the most underrated victories ever. Even with Randy's exit plan, they did great. That's all that needs to be said about this run.

Also, it's funny how BOTH Parrot runs in Season 3 had Red-Green-Purple-Silver on the steps, Green vs. Purple in the temple games with Purple winning. Though granted, all 3 Purple Parrot victories had the same Red-Green-Purple-Silver combination at the steps. And neither featured 1.5 pendant runs. The Upside Down Compass team had 2 pendants, and The Metal Beard episode had 1 pendant. Good stuff overall, are you gonna do anymore rankings?

I think I might do what PP319 did and rank most of the Red Jaguar episodes. Although some of those episodes are painful to watch though and I am not really looking forward to sit through garbage like "Blackbeard's Treasure Map" or "The Missing Weather Maps of Charles Lindbergh". But I still want to do one more production day in season one and season two first.

Anyways, onto your recent rankings:

I actually did the "Henry Hudson" team a month or so ago, and they were a pretty dominant team pre-temple run. Although it seems your numbers for Sherra and Derek were sightly higher in most categories (minus the Steps) than mine. I do remember this team dominating the temple games, but I thought Sherra was a little stronger than Derek in the temple games. He kind of kept getting hit by the boulder in his game. But still, the team swept the temple games. The temple run was a little disappointing, but this team faced an unfair layout also. They were forced down into the bottom floor, than back up onto the top floor. I thought Sherra was a little too slow in the temple though. Derek moved a little faster, but he made a couple of unnecessary detours. I don't really count the monkey drop against him, because like you said, he probably dropped it to try and get e monkey together as fast as possible.

Also, I don't see how people really compare this run to the "Sacagawea" run. The Green Monkeys in that run were at fault for not reaching the Jacket. Didn't the King's Storeroom open in that run? Plus, both players were slow too and neither bothered to speed up.

And as for "Egyptian Queen", it is definitely an overlooked episode and win. I say that TJ was the best male Purple Parrot player on the show. I don't remember the details pre-temple game rounds, but I know that team did very well in the team game and they atually won the tiebreaker. And I am glad that you gave Randy a good score in the temple too. I remember somone else ranked her a gave her a "6". I don't think she was that bad in the temple. Maybe a "7" or "7.5" was more respectable. Overall, its definitely an overlooked win and all we hear about is "Bandit Queen" when Zac was the savior in that run. In this run, it was both players who made it exciting.

And good luck with Jennifer from "Map to the Lost Gold Mine". With all due respect to THK, I think both players from that episode were ranked too low. After all, TMH ranked them as the fourth best team on the show using his ranking system. And I feel some of the numbers are low to like in the temple games and Jennifer in particular in the temple. I just don't see how she was that bad to be ranked that low, especially for her to receive the same ranking as Gabby from "Elizabeth I's Golden Ship".
