It's a shame we can't tell if the Swamp doors opened, because that could have provided at least another option for her. Hard to say. The really poor editing on this show really was a pain sometimes.

I'd have to go back and watch my VHS tape for the commercials. I couldn't tell you off the top of my head. The tape is at my 91-year-old grandfather's house, and I'm not going over there for awhile.

I don't have an exact date, but I believe it was sometime in the summer. I actually have half of this episode recorded from either its original broadcast date or a rerun. The episode after it on my tape is The Secret Battle Plan of Nathan Hale.

The Heart Room / The Shrine door in The Sacred Ring of Sultan Suleiman
« on: March 30, 2020, 03:46:54 PM »
Hey all! I decided to randomly check and see if my login credentials still worked and not only do they, but I also wanted to see if I could get a discussion going!

Reading through old posts, there seems to be a debate as to whether or not the Shrine of the Silver Monkey door opened during "The Sacred Ring of Sultan Suleiman." This episode is one of the more well-known losses in the show's history, with Gracelyn passing up the half-pendant and getting caught by a third guard in Medusa's Lair, as well as her partner not pulling all three books in The Crypt and ending up in the dead-end Ledges (where he also found a Temple Guard).

Here's what I think; I believe the Shrine door did open, but Gracelyn chose not to go that way. Why do I believe this? Well, it's incredibly circumstantial, but once she enters the King's Storeroom, the first thing she does is turn around and press the inactive actuators for both The Observatory - which she just came from - and Medusa's Lair. This implies to me that, for some reason, she was determined to go that direction. I don't know if she had a bad map of the Temple in her head or what, but I feel like she had always wanted to go back that way. Plus, Kirk seems incredibly confused as to why she's going back. I don't think he would have been if the Shrine door was locked.

I'm curious to see what others think about this.

I went through the episode list and posted the ones I know from the top of my head.

No, this was Ancient Greece/Troy.

Well I can tell you I've recently found my way back here after a very extended absence :) The movie (which I haven't yet seen) renewed my interest in the series. I've been lurking here for the past couple months, going back and looking at old posts and getting back into my favorite Nick game show. And today I made my first post in about four years. So I figured, why not come back? :)

The Heart Room / Re: Episode Order
« on: December 26, 2016, 04:08:24 PM »
Do we know that for sure? Because I'm fairly certain the episodes aired out of production order.

I at least know for a fact seasons two and three did. I have several episodes recorded on VHS off of their original broadcasts.

Here's the order I have some season two episodes in:

The Electrified Key of Benjamin Franklin -> The Silver Cannonball of Grandy Nanny -> The Bone Necklace of the Blackfeet Chief -> The Milk Bucket of Freydis

And there's two season three episodes I can confirm the date they aired, since a Nick Days segment aired during the commercial break. I'll have to look and see (I don't know it off the top of my head) but I can check it and add it here.

I don't think that's the half-pendent. I just saw the episode on my VHS copy and I think it's just a piece of the "packing peanuts" (or whatever they are) from the Holes of Python. It's far too small to be the half-pendent.

The Heart Room / Funniest LOTHT Moments
« on: September 16, 2008, 05:57:16 AM »
Hope I'm not resurrecting a dead topic here.

The funniest moment I have ever seen on Legends was during The Melted Head of Madame Tussaud. It's the third Temple Game. The players have to run out, grab a melted head, put it in their bin, and then their partner goes. The catch is, there is a large, swinging boulder trying to knock them off the platform. The boy from the Orange Iguanas goes first and just barely misses the boulder. Jennifer runs up, ready to go out, when the boulder hits her. It was so funny, because she literally went flying backwards! Kirk commented on it, then when her partner went to see if she was okay, she brushed him off and ran out.

There was a Saddam reference? I undoubtedly never picked up on that one.

Yep. In the episode "Tommy and the Secret Club," Angelica was mad at Tommy because he gave the secret code to Chuckie to get in. She told him, "If you do that, then just anybody can walk in here; Count Draculator, Sadman Husseini, or even Chuckie!"

I never realized what she was saying until a couple years ago when I caught a rerun on Nicktoons Network. There was also one episode where Angelica's father received a package from a "pathetic, groveling employee," which is making me laugh even as I'm typing this.

The Dark Forest / When did Nickelodeon Jump the shark?

For me, Nickelodeon jumped around 1999. That's when they started cancelling all the old shows that made the network popular. That also happened to be around the same time (as Nicklegends mentioned) that Rugrats began adding all those pointless characters and (as I saw it) correcting all the problems and making it a "perfect" show. Don't believe me? Take a look; they gave Tommy a brother, which he didn't have; Chuckie a sister and a mother, both of which he was lacking (although he did have a mother at one point, who passed away); Grandpa Lou got married to a woman played by Debbie Reynolds, who I don't believe ever really appeared, thereby giving Tommy and Dil two sets of grandparents; and Angelica got an "assistant" in Harold, which I guess was the best they could give her in regards to a younger sibling (I can't really see Drew and Charlotte having another kid).

Then you started getting these really stupid Nicktoons about that time as well. SpongeBob and Invader ZIM were great, and Rocket Power was okay, but pretty much all the others were terrible. The ones that weren't (like Jimmy Neutron) suffered from rerun abuse and became bad really quickly. It was also around this time that their movies started getting really bad. Clockstoppers had probably the dumbest premise for any movie I've heard of, and I would love to know who thought it would be a great idea to have a crossover with The Wild Thornberrys and the Rugrats.

In recent years, I think Nick has tried to lure older kids back to the network with TEENick (or as I used to call it, Teen Ick.), Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide, Unfabulous and that show with what's-her-name's sister (I don't even care anymore). Sadly, it's started to fail miserably. Even their good shows (Kappa Mikey for example) have become really bad in regards to new episodes.

I think Nickelodeon should try releasing a show with humor geared towards older people (like the old episodes of Rugrats. One episode made reference to Clarence Thomas, and another Saddam Hussein.) I think when it's written for older people, the humor becomes better for the younger crowd as well, although they won't understand it until they're older.

Just my two cents.

The Heart Room / Least Favorite Room
« on: February 23, 2008, 01:18:56 PM »
The Tomb of the Headless Kings. Took way too long to complete the objective, and it didn't help that the room was really dark and one could hardly see what they were doing.

Plus, that room was partially responsible for the team not reaching the artifact in The War Fan of the 47 Ronin.

A "Judges Ruling" also occurs in "John Henry's Lost Hammer".

Actually, that one was a disqualification, because the Green Monkeys crossed incorrectly.

I'm more interested at how the Barracudas also managed to break the gong when they got across the moat.

If you look at some episodes, you'll notice that the gong's cover is actually sort of slanted to the side when compared to others. I wonder if maybe it was loose and the guy slamming down on it was the proverbial final nail in the coffin.

I actually used to think that was the reason they were disqualified when I was younger.

Didn't Kirk once say something like "They went all the way!" after a team won the temple run?

I'm pretty sure he did, but I can't think of a specific episode.

"You might open the treasure chest, and climb down through it."
(Yeah, that's bad.)

Violent gang members
Criminals who get released from jail only to commit more crimes

Not so serious:
Stupid lawsuits and the people who file them
People who, when you ask for a hamburger, ask if you want cheese on it. If I wanted cheese, I would have asked for a cheeseburger.
