Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes!!!!!! Day 1: The Golden Goblet of Atilla the Hun
Post by: GreenMonkeys#1 on February 04, 2013, 08:12:04 PM
I will give Atilla the Hun a 3. It was sort of forgettable yet I think that Rachelle got just one room away from the artifact by herself was big though it is only 1 of 2 times that has happened when she ran out of time before she got to the artifact solo that her partner never went in. She went through 8 rooms solo with 1 Temple Guard (Medusa's Lair). Not really much to say about this one

Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on February 04, 2013, 08:27:58 PM
Cool, more rankings. We really need our own section for this, like with the Legends Tournament.

Anyways, this gets a 4. This run and episode as a whole was so boring.
Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes!!!!!! Day 1: The Golden Goblet of Atilla the Hun
Post by: The Red Jaguars on February 05, 2013, 12:25:27 AM
I gave "Attila the Hun" a 4 also. There is literally nothing memorable about this episode at all. I don't even remember a single detail about any round either. Never mind the fact that I just watched this episode this past summer when it aired on T90'SAAT. Okay, I sort of remember Taylor having a mini-crush on Rachelle and how Rachelle was one of the few contestants to use up all three minutes in the temple. It wasn't a bad episode though, just VERY forgettable.

I'm going to end this one early a bit, Atilla the Hun gets a 3.67 (note all results rounded to nearest Hundreth). If you still want to put one for Atilla the Hun, you can post down here or PM it.

Next one up is the Mummified Hand of the Egyptian King.

Thanks  ;), is that just a mod thing because I can't see it in the edit poll option  :|

Egyptian King is getting a 7. This episode was famous for the Pendant Drop by Maggie. Josh somehow did the unthinkable finding it deep in the Pit. The reason this wasn't a win is because Josh took a different route thus resulting in Triple Capture. It would've been amazing if this was a win.

Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on February 05, 2013, 08:22:46 PM
It must be just a mod thing, if no one else but the mods can edit the polls accordingly. Don't know why that is.

Anyways, I also gave it a 7. It was a pretty good episode, and the temple run was certainly a unique one. I don't know if this is an unpopular opinion, but I thought it was a huge mistake for Josh to take a different route. If he had just stuck to the bottom floor, he would have found the half pendant, and the run wouldn't have ended in triple capture. I'm pretty sure Maggie and Josh wanted to take the top floor, but Maggie just couldn't get back from the platform. I don't fault Maggie for dropping her pendant, but Josh never should have strayed from Maggie's bottom floor path. Either way, Josh and Maggie were a good team, they just encountered some bad luck.
Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes!!!!!! Day 2: The Mummified Hand of the Egyptian King
Post by: The Red Jaguars on February 06, 2013, 12:01:02 AM
I am giving Egyptian King a 6. It was a pretty quirky episode from start to finish. First off, the artifact was literally a severed hand.  :shock: The temple games were pretty decent, even though they used some of my least favorite games of S3 (swinging boulder and the boulder overhead team game). The temple run is actually pretty exciting and quirky. I don't fault Maggie for her pendant drop either. I am sure it was an honest mistake and that it probably fell off her wrist by mistake. Josh had a good plan by staying on the high road, but he also doomed himself because he didn't have two full pendants. I commend him for finding Maggie's pendant and moving fast, but taking a differentpath was risky like PPF mentioned.

One thing that brought this episode down was the legend. It was so silly and stupid at the same time. Plus, they pulled an "Imperial Wizard" trick in the legend by naming the two Egyptian guys Nachmed and Achmed. :roll: Although the Imperial Wizard legend is still worse though. :roll: But the "Egyptian King" legend is just laughable.  :roll:

Post by: GreenMonkeys#1 on February 06, 2013, 08:20:05 PM
I will give Robert the Bruce a 2. Jeremy is all to blame for the loss. Why? Because 1. He cheated in his Temple Game and 2. He passed the Half-Pendant. The Main highlight of this episode is Jeremy cheating but the Legend itself was alright but having it to do with a spider is stupid. That is not a good way of saying the third time is the charm.
Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes!!!!!! Day 3: The Golden Spider Web of Robert the Bruce
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on February 06, 2013, 08:31:15 PM
This episode gets a 3. I consider Jeremy's "cheating" in his temple game an honest mistake and I don't hold it against him. But besides that, this entire episode was just plain boring. There is not a single memorable thing about this episode besides Jeremy's temple game. And the temple run sucked, even with their impossible layout.
Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes!!!!!! Day 3: The Golden Spider Web of Robert the Bruce
Post by: The Red Jaguars on February 06, 2013, 11:03:54 PM
I am going to give Robert the Bruce a 4. It was a pretty uneventful episode, but it was better than some of the crappy filler episodes of S3. I have seen this episode many times thanks to Nick GaS. -_- Nothing really happens in this episode at all, except Jeremy cheating in his temple game. But like mentioned above, it was just an honest mistake and it's not like it shafted the Silver Snakes because they won. The temple run was just like "Hans Holbein" with a ridiculous layout, but it didn't help that they moved so slow and Jeremy missed the half-pendant. Oh well, they wouldn't have gotten past the Dark Forest anyways.

I gave Sir Gawain an 8. It's actually a pretty good episode despite the fact that Nick GaS overplayed the episode all the time. The legend was very good and interesting, the temple games were close, and the temple run was pretty solid. Some memorable moments from the episode include "Exit stage right" during the temple games and Jahmel's badly coordinated and dubbed over temple game with the swinging mace. Tiffani also did a solid job in the temple even if her path was lucky. She did do many things right though including making it back to the platform, taking the Shrine shortcut, and dragging out the big Helmet with a good effort. Definitely one of my favorite episodes on the show.

Sir Gawain gets an 8. This episode Nick Gas repeated many times but at least Tiffani gave us a good reason to do that. It was shocking the team didn't run into a single guard. I like that it was a win but carrying that heavy helmet proved big for Tiffani. Also that Exit Stage Left was funny too.

You can still help us rate the other episodes even if you haven't watched the full episode. *trying to get more people to vote*  :P

And believe me, I have only watched about 1/3 of the full episodes too. Hell, I hardly remember anything about Robert the Bruce and Attila the Hun and watched the latter episode this past summer. It's been a while since I have watch a full episode for most of them. So I am only voting based off of bits and pieces too. ;)

You probably forgot it because it was literally a forgettable episode. I watched it too and I don't remember a single thing. I do remember the Purple Parrot girl looking like she didn't want to be there. And for Taylor blowing kisses at Rachelle. But the episode is really forgettable, so you're not the only one. ;)

And I have watched every single episode in full also. Most of them are decent in a way and have some sort of redeeming value. Even episodes like Jean Lafitte and Enormous Feather had one good round. I do enjoy going back and rewatching some of the more obscure episodes. Like I went back and watched Judge Roy Bean a few months back and forgot how interesting it was. But then there are episode I refuse to watch. *cough Spanish King, Snow Cone, Bifocal Monocle, Alhambra, and Amelia Earhart cough*

The only thing I absolutely know about every episode is their temple runs. I know a majority of the temple game rounds and legends too. But I definitely know the temple runs the most. ;)

Post by: The Red Jaguars on February 09, 2013, 12:35:03 AM
I also gave Imperial Wizard a 6. This episode is pretty decent IMO and I do remember some stuff about it. The Green Monkeys were a very dominant team including finishing first in the Steps and sweeping the temple games. They also did decent during the temple run where they faced a tough layout. Jared stalled too much in the Dark Forest unfortunately but Katie followed up on his path very well. One thing that drags this episode down is the extremely stupid legend. Wing Ding and Ring Ling? Really? I can understand the one Chinese woman's name being Ling Ling, but not every single Chinese woman's name has to rhyme with "Ing" you silly producers.  :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll:

Sorry about the long delay but here it is.

I'm giving Joan of Arc a 5. This was just your typical "Center of the Room" loss with a difficult layout with no shortcuts. Plus the episode is just average. If I can say anything good, it's only 1 of 2 times when the Torch room was completed.

I am giving Joan of Arc a 5. It's not a bad episode at all, just forgettable. I only remember the semi-interesting legend from that episode and the temple loss is average at best. It was the classic Season One temple loss where the second runner is slow and dooms the team from winning due to making a stupid mistake. They weren't bad players though and they still made it far. Overall, it was just an average episode.

One Eyed Jack gets the shit rating of 1. This episode was crap from the Moat. Veronica is in my opinion the worst person in Season 3. They got so lucky in the Temple Games. Veronica couldn't even climb her way out of the Pit  :oops: . She got captured but in an ugly way because the ladders were removed to go down to the Jester's Court. Thomas even did the Crypt objective again :roll:. Veronica was just a lost cause and she is the reason why this episode sucks :roll:
Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes! Day 7: The Bifocal Monocle of One Eyed Jack
Post by: The Red Jaguars on February 10, 2013, 09:56:17 PM
I also gave Bifocal Monocle a 1. This episode is literally utter garbage and there is NOTHING redeemable about it. I know it was the first episode of S3 and that it will be more awkward than usual, but "Belshazzar" and "Butch Cassidy" were also the first episodes of their respective seasons and weren't anywhere near a disgrace of this episode.

The legend is lame, the artifact looks too cartoonish and stupid, the temple games sucked, and the temple run is probably the second worst in the whole series. In Thomas/Red Jaguars boy temple game, the Red Jaguar boy literally spent the whole time trying to pull himself up the second hole in the maze game (like the one Jeremy cheated in). And don't get me started with the temple run. Veronica literally spent 1/3 of the temple run just in the Pit of the Pendulum. The wall couldn't have been that hard to climb. And then she backtracks to the King's Storeroom when she can't make any progress forward. Thomas was equally as bad as Veronica and he pulled the books in the Crypt when he didn't need to. And I kind of agree and disagree with you, GM1. I agree that Veronica was the worst girl of Season 3 but I also think Thomas was equally as sucky as her. They were both lost causes.

I know I overdid with the whole rant about this episode, but it whole-heartedly deserves it. The only S3 episode that might be worse is Snow Cone, but I hope we don't review that episode anytime soon. Overall, atrocious episode.  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:

I also gave Bifocal Monocle a 1. This episode is literally utter garbage and there is NOTHING redeemable about it. I know it was the first episode of S3 and that it will be more awkward than usual, but "Belshazzar" and "Butch Cassidy" were also the first episodes of their respective seasons and weren't anywhere near a disgrace of this episode.

I am also giving Buddha a 7. I remember the episode for the unusual artifact, the Blue Barracudas dominance before the temple, and Jennifer's slow temple win. And as slow as Jennifer was, she knew what she was doing and it wasn't that bad of a win. And it was pretty much better than the other episodes from the S1L6 day.

I am giving Stone Head a 4 also. There is nothing really redeemable about this episode. I dd enjoy the legend and the temple games used were okay, but there were more bad things than good about this episode. The temple run was disappointing considering the fact that Heather and Tony swept the temple games. No one should ever spend over a minute in a room, even if the objective was frustrating. Oh yeah, the moat was ridiculously long. Was this the 45 minute moat? Probably one of the worst Barracuda episodes on the show.

What about the Mush Pot Hat moat or Empress Theodora moat? I guess its definitely not one of them because the teams in those moats didn't struggle as much IIRC. But since all the moats were taped together, that must've been a painful moat round tosit through.  :shock:

No trust me, it HAD to be Cracked Crown. The mist disappeared so early and it took forever getting the last two teams across. The Stone Head just took forever getting the last team across. Imperial Robe and Mush Pot Hat weren't long at all.

I will go ahead and give William the Conqueror a 7. This was a pretty good episode, but it is not exactly memorable though. The Green Monkeys kind of sucked during the Steps, but they turned around and then swept the temple games. The temple loss is very exciting though and any team that reaches a center of the temple artifact is good enough in my book. If neither Olivia or Jonathan wasted time on their own parts in certain rooms, this would've been a solid temple win. Also, longest episode title ever.  :P

I am going to give Pytheas a 5 also. It was a mediocre episode indeed. I have seen this episode about a couple of hundred times thanks to Nick GaS. I remember the close competition during the temple games (2-1.5 score) and the legend was kind of sucky. The temple run is average at best, and Brittany and Damien managed to somehow finish one room away from the artifact despite moving so slow. Luckily, neither one of them were clueless, so it saved this run from being a total disaster. But still, it was another one of the many Orange Iguanas episodes that were pretty lackluster.
Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes! Day 11: The Lost Whale Bone of Pytheas
Post by: GreenMonkeys#1 on February 15, 2013, 06:56:58 AM
I'm going to give Pytheas a 4. It loses a point because of how slow Damien was in the Temple. But to even get to the Room of the Ancient Warriors was something especially in a "Center of the Room" run. But for all the other rounds they were just typical. However it was a funny Legend.

Post by: The Red Jaguars on February 16, 2013, 12:37:26 AM
I gave Empress Eugenie a score of an 8. You can tell that the producers went above and beyond in this episode compared to past S3 episodes. The legend was very good and one of the few legends I can remember by heart. The Green Monkeys were very strong in the temple games and the Purple Parrots were no match for them. The temple run was very exciting too. Too bad Janeen blew it by being so slow and hesitant. But it was fun to watch Jay in the temple and he saved this run from being as bad as Enormous Feather and Charles Lindbergh. Overall, I enjoyed this episode very much but it really should've been a win with that easier than usual temple layout.
Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes! Day 12: The Good Luck Watch of Empress Eugenie
Post by: GreenMonkeys#1 on February 16, 2013, 07:04:24 AM
I'll say 7. The Legend was interesting as well as Jay's dominant Run to the Watch. It's too bad that Janeen couldn't move her slow ass and Jay running into bad luck in the Jester's Court. If those 2 don't happen, this would be a win.

I am going to give Magellan a 6. It's not a bad episode at all, just very forgettable. I did enjoy some parts of this episode. The legend is pretty morbid and I studied Magellan a lot in High School, so I was very familiar with it. The temple games were decent and it featured a rare temple game combination, with the Blue Barracudas beating the Orange Iguanas only one time. And while the temple run was rather boring and filled with numerous errors, the team still finished one room away from the artifact. And the Harmonic Convergence deadend was a little bit unfair too. It was a decent episode, just not very memorable though...
Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes! Day 13: The Lost Log Books of Magellan
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on February 17, 2013, 12:50:27 AM
I'm giving it a 5. It's just a typical, boring episode of Season 1. The only thing memorable about it is the rare Blue vs. Orange matchup in the temple games. And it's the only time out of the 4 episodes Blue beats Orange. The temple run was kind of meh, the team never should've entered the Room of the Harmonic Convergence.

I don't even remember a single detail about the earlier rounds of the show, and I have watched each win a dozen times. And don't get me started on the temple win. It has to be one of the most undeserving wins IMO. The win would've been more bearable and impressive had Mitchell attempted to speed up at least once and not assemble the Silver Monkey after grabbing the artifact. Even if the Green Monkeys won the temple games, they probably would've won also. Just a lame and uninspiring episode with such an overrated and undeserving win.  :roll:

I give it a perfect 10. :mrblue: This entire episode is full of win. The Blue Barracudas were a strong team all day. By being first in the moat, first in the Steps of Knowledge, won 2 pendants in the temple games, and scored an amazing victory! I also loved how exciting and quirky this episode was. From Kirk's numerous Fogg Ups, to temple game miscountings, to a solid temple performance. And Jennifer slip on the floor at the end? Priceless. Very memorable and very exciting victory and episode. Second best episode of Season 1 behind Lawrence of Arabia.

10! :mrblue: This has to be one of the best episodes of Season 1 and probably the most quirkiest om the entire show. This episode has a lot of Fogg ups including a miscounted temple game. Some Fogg quotes were "The sixteen are going to the Temple", "The Ledge of Sighs", "The Temple of the Ancient Kings" and the "Center of the Room". Now back to the episode. It should be noted that Jennifer was the only person in the entire show to "hug an Idol" :o . She also had a very funny moment too when she was leaving the Temple, she slipped on the tarp, I'm suprised her glasses weren't broken on that fall  :lol: . This was a great episode start to finish.

I am going to add to the 10 crowd myself for "Map to the Lost Gold Mine".  :mrblue: I love this episode since day one when I first watched it. It was a very memorable and exciting episode, and this was a Season One episode to boot. Jennifer and David were a VERY strong team - first in the moat, first in the Steps, two Pendants in the temple games, and they even won! Some memorable moments include the temple game miscounts during Jennifer's temple game and the temple run was very memorable and fun. Jennifer and David were fast contestants, but Jennifer was the star of this run, and Kirk even noted it too. I love all of the Kirk Fogg-ups during the temple run, most notably the ones that GM1 quoted. Plus, I also liked how he called the Pit, "Jennifer's Pit". The most memorable moment was when Jennifer slipped on the random piece of tarp at the end of the temple run.  :lol: That was a great effort on Jennifer's part and the Blue Barracudas in general. They sure made good use of that second chance! Overall, one of my all time favorite episodes.  :mrblue:  :mrblue:  :mrblue:  :mrblue:  :mrblue:

Shaka Zulu gets a 6 from me. It's just an average episode, faulty door opening and hyper active male Green Monkey aside. And this temple run, is the second most undeserved, most unexciting, victory in the shows history next to Silk Ladder. Bobby was just plain average and completely lucked into his win. If he didn't have access to the Tomb of the Ancient Kings, this team would've lost. I am not going to give him special treatment just because "he moved fast" and "he got lucky" with a production error. The rest of the episode is alright, but the temple run itself was just uninspiring.

Shaka Zulu is getting a 5. This episode is famous for the faulty door and for being they fastest run. Really, it doesn't deserve to have that. It should've gone to Yakerra from Roland. The other rounds were just typical. But I do think this run is better than :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll:
Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes! Day 16: The Mask of Shaka Zulu

And also for the "Drat that Zulu Drought" quote.  :roll: And I never cared for the temple win either, nor did I ever find it amazing. Yeah, Bobby moved fast along the bottom floor of the temple. Big deal. Both Jennifer from "Map to the Lost Gold Mine" and David from "Lawrence of Arabia" could've done the same thing too, but much faster. And the door opening was a load of crap too. Definitely the second most undeserving win after  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll: .

Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes! Day 17: The Missing Weathermaps of Charles Lindbergh
Post by: The Red Jaguars on February 20, 2013, 11:37:40 PM
I gave Charles Lindbergh a 4. The episode is kind of interesting in the early portions of the show. The legend was the only time live footage was actually used, which was a nice change of pace. The temple games featured a sweep of the Orange Iguanas by the Red Jaguars. So when you get a strong temple game performance from a team like Nick and Kim, you expect a good temple performance, right? Not with this temple run though. Nick was amazingly fast and he was in killer mode once he got past the Crypt. With around 2:00 minutes on the clock, you expect Kim would reach the Missing Weather Maps, right? Wrong. She tries very hard to blow this run anyway she can - unnecessary backtracking, moving super slow, and having trouble completing every single objective. Case in point, look at my sig for her pitiful Shrine performance. And even when she completed the Shrine, she passes the Dark Forest door when it opens from the Shrine.  :roll:

This team did come the closest to retrieving a Dark Forest artifact. But that doesn't make it a good temple run at all because Kim ruined everything. This temple run should've been a win, no question about it. Even Kerry and Aqila probably would've reached the Dark Forest. This temple run is a disgrace to the Red Jaguars, especially after Nick and Kim's dominance in the temple games. :roll:

I'm giving Me Linh a 2. Really, this episode sucks and even if Karisa got to the Feather, she still sucks. The  :iguanas2: barely made it. What was it, 4th in Moat, 2nd at Steps, 1 Pendant tiebreaker? Yeah it should've been the  :parrots2: . David was so good, if only he had a good partner. Just like that last episode, a tactical genius with a slow witted player. :roll:

I also gave Enormous Feather a 2. This episode is one of the many reasons why the Orange Iguanas were my least favorite teams. There is hardly anything I like about this episode. I suppose the legend was okay and the Steps were kind of interesting with the "Really really fast" answer. But the Orange Iguanas barely advanced past each round though. The only time they were sort of dominant was when Karisa and David won their individual games. And I hate the temple run with a passion and refuse to watch it. Karisa was a horrible contestant and she tried her hardest to make sure this team wouldn't win. I have seen this episode too many times too, so it made me loathe it more than I should. It was a horrible episode.

I give it a 7. It was a very exciting episode and MUCH better than some of the other Season 3 episodes. But the win (while well earned) is overrated.
Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes! Day 19: The Ivory Hunting Horn of Roland
Post by: The Red Jaguars on February 23, 2013, 12:30:30 AM
I gave Roland an 8 also. The episode is pretty good, even if the temple win was not very exciting and easy. Kirk and Olmec were having fun with the "Roland" puns. The temple games were also very exciting. Kraig and Yakerra dominated the "throw your boulder over your head" team game. I never seen anyone dominate it before. The temple run is overrated though. While it was a fast win, it really wasn't that amazing in comparison with the rest of the Season 3 wins. It is kind of the "Silk Ladder ( :roll: )" of S3 wins. But it was still a fun episode and I enjoyed it.  :jaguars2:

I gave Silk Sash a 5. It was just an average episode at best. However, it wasn't forgettable or anything. Just nothing really good or bad about it. I do remember it for the Blue Barracudas barely advancing past the moat. It also had the Green Monkey boy who couldn't stay away from the camera and screwed up his temple game. Plus, the temple run had three over-the-top temple guards. Jessie's temple guard in the Crypt went looking for the pendant that she threw at him like a lost puppy and Justin's temple guard in the Laser Light Room wanted that pendant BADLY.  :lol:

Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes! Day 21: The Mask of the Man in the Iron Mask
Post by: The Red Jaguars on February 24, 2013, 09:39:53 PM
I am going to go ahead and give Iron Mask a 7. It may have been a forgettable episode, but it is also definitely worth a view. The most interesting part about this episode is the legend. The legend is very accurate and makes you curious about what it is about. The temple games also had a memorable quote, "The key to the game is the key" (reference to Justin's temple game where they had to collect keys). Justin and Danielle were very strong also - First in the moat, first at the steps, and won two pendants in the temple games. The temple run wasn't very exciting though. The players were kind of slow and Danielle messed up big time when she went into Medusa's Lair. But Justin's head first slide into the stone wall was pretty hilarious. :P And as time consuming as Medusa's Lair was, they still finished one room away. It was actually a good episode, just not very exciting...

Justin and Danielle were not first in the Steps, they were second.

Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes! Day 22: The Dried Apple Half of William Tell
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on February 25, 2013, 10:12:58 PM
William Tell gets a 3. This was a terrible episode. Long moat, bad Steps of Knowledge round, one sided temple games, and a pathetic temple run. TMH described Lauren perfectly: a failure of a human being. Their layout was impossible, and they were going to lose anyways. But spending a whole minute just getting to the King's Storeroom entrance as the second runner, is inexcusable.
Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes! Day 22: The Dried Apple Half of William Tell
Post by: The Red Jaguars on February 25, 2013, 10:55:05 PM
I gave William Tell a 3 also. One of the four episodes from the impossible temple run layout day. This episode shares the EXACT same temple games as "Mary Shelley". Except the temple games in this episode were more boring and one-sided like mentioned above. The legend was probably the only good thing about this episode. And the temple run was pretty much impossible like the other episodes that day. But Lauren and Brett sucked so bad that they probably wouldn't have won with a relatively easy layout. And as hard as their layout was, there is no excuse for their pathetic temple performance. Leah and Matthew from "Belle Boyd" had an identical layout, yet they made it much further than these two losers did. And Lauren was so annoying, just shut up and let your partner do his part. And my favorite part is how she entered the temple with one minute left and still couldn't reach the King's Storeroom. I guess TMH was right when he said that Lauren failed as a human being. :roll:

Post by: The Red Jaguars on February 26, 2013, 11:53:57 PM
I want to give Chandragupta a 9. This episode was one of the many good Green Monkey episodes in Season 3. The producers were having fun with this episode and making references left and right. Like the cat reference at th Steps of Knowledge which referred to the cougar statues at the side of the Steps. Andrea was also very enthusastic during the whole episode too, and it was authentic and not fake like Lauren or Kate. And the temple run was very solid and a well-earned win. I honestly couldn't find a single thing wrong with it. Andrea rocked and it was nice to see these two win.

Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes! Day 24: The Lucky Pig of Amelia Earhart
Post by: The Red Jaguars on February 27, 2013, 11:13:52 PM
Amelia Earhart gets a 2 from me. What an awful and extremely boring episode. There is absolutely nothing good about this episode at all. The Blue Barracudas barely advanced by each round of the temple. More like, Scott did all the work and Kristen hardly contributed at all. Case in point, Scott won his individual temple game and answered all the questions correctly in the Steps. And the temple run was terrible and an epic fail on Kristen's part. While the team had a very long path with no shortcuts, that doesn't excuse Kristen's piss poor performance. She literally got lost in the Treasure Room and Dungeon, couldn't climb the Wall Climb, and moved like a rock. She only made it far because all her rooms aside from the Shrine were easy. Poor Scott, the kid never got to enter the temple even though he did most of the work the whole episode.

The only thing I liked about this episode was the legend (I like reading stuff about Amelia Earhart'sdisappearance) and the rare Bamboo Forest temple game. And I thought the Lucky Pig being in the Room of Harmonic Convergence was a little weird. :P

Overall, it was a very lackluster and lame episode.  :roll:

Dr. Livingstone gets a 6. The team did alright but the episode itself was kinda boring, including the run. The path is EXACTLY like Metal Beard and this is a very typical episode.
Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes! Day 25: The Diary of Dr. Livingstone
Post by: The Red Jaguars on February 28, 2013, 10:49:52 PM
Well, five people did vote in the Chandragupta poll a couple of days ago. So it's not like every episode is getting three votes. I wish there was a way to promote these polls more though. Is it possible to advertise it on the main page? Like on some forums, you can set afeature for the poll to appear on the front page. All we need is someone to take 5 seconds to vote. Feedback is only optional. ;)

Anyways, I went ahead and gave "Dr. Livingstone" a 6 also. It was just a slightly above average episode. I do remember the legend being interesting in this episode. The temple games were also pretty fast in this episode, but they weren't very exciting or competitive at all. In fact, the Blue Barracudas swept the temple games. The temple win was pretty boring and forgettable. Both Tabitha and Brett moved at an average speed and the only real objective they had to complete was the Viper's Nest (hardly an objective). And then they were lucky to win with Brett's poor exit. The "Egyptian Queen" win was much more memorable and exciting than this one. Overall, Tabitha and Brett were a pretty solid team in their episode. But it was just slightly above average at best.

Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes! Day 26: The Marble Armrest of Xerxes
Post by: The Red Jaguars on March 02, 2013, 12:33:27 AM
Marble Armrest... yet another episode that was shown countless times on Nick GaS and I had the misfortune to watch it many times. So I know this episode by heart, unfortunately. Anyways, I am going to give this episode a 3. It was a pretty unique and unusual episode from the start to finish. The legend was very unusual where it talks about the Persians punishing water because it destroyed the bridge. No really, the legend stated that they took whips to the water since it was unruly. :shock: The Purple Parrots were pretty dominant in this episode and it featured our beloved Zac Turney's younger brother, Levi. Anyways, the temple games were pretty good and competitive. Except for Pat's temple game where he literally made no effort to block Levi's shots. Then we get the most pathetic tiebreaker question. "What was Xerxes' armrest made of?" Really? The answer was revealed five seconds ago. :roll:

Unfortunately, the Green Monkeys made it to the temple. The temple run performance was pathetic and these two had no idea what they were doing. I mean they literally did not make it past the bottom floor of the temple in three whole minutes. That is just pathetic, especially since the bottom floor was the easiest part of the temple in S3! The layout was hard, but that doesn't excuse their pathetic performance. Irish from Jedediah Smith had a similar path compared to these two, and she still made it one room away. Maybe if they didn't move so slow or waste so much time on one objective.

I would've given this episode a higher score if the Green Monkeys just didn't scrape by every round of the episode. Then they turn around and suck it up in the temple. Do yourself a favor and just skip this episode. There is not much good about it except for Levi and the sort of interesting legend.

Davy Crockett gets a 6. While this win is similar to :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: , it was better. Shannon & Adam may not be the best, but they still won. And the stupid part is the artifact is a Pendant of Life :roll: .
Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes! Day 27: The Collar of Davy Crockett
Post by: The Red Jaguars on March 03, 2013, 12:29:20 AM
I also gave Davy Crockett a 6. I don't remember much about this episode, but I do know that it wasn't a bad episode by any means. Yeah, the artifact being a Pendant of Life was indeed lame. The producers were pretty good at finding Dollar Store artifacts in Season 1. But it still wasn't as bad as the Lost Lariat and Paintbrush. The temple games also had a rare moment where the team won the last temple game and went onto the temple. The temple win was kind of close to " :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll: ", but I like this win much better than Silk Ladder. At least Shannon didn't try to make a break for the direct path. Adam was very slow though and he almost caused this team to lose. There is no reason why they should've finished with four seconds left with such an easy layout. Either way, I liked the episode and it wasn't bad at all.  :snakes2:

Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes! Day 28: The Sacred Ring of Sultan Suleiman
Post by: The Red Jaguars on March 03, 2013, 10:46:03 PM
Sultan Suleiman will get a 5 from me. While the temple run for this episode was pretty bad and pathetic, the rest of the episode was pretty interesting. The temple games used in this episode were very unique as each temple game practically followed the sequence of the entire legend. Why didn't the producers do this more often?  It was much more interesting than having a random temple game that was not relevant to the legend at all. The temple run was pretty disappointing, but the outcome wouldn't have happened if Brian just didn't enter the Ledges. Oh well, at least the path was interesting. And it was one of the rare few Purple Parrot temple runs, so you can't really hate it that much. It would've been a better episode if Brian and Gracelyn performed better.  :roll:

Missing Eye gets a 7 from me. Very quirky episode, from the 4 way tie on the Steps of Knowledge, to the temple games, to the interesting temple run. Michael and Emily were a pretty good team, they just had some bad luck. And how is anyone supposed to see a half pendant in Medusa's Lair?
Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes! Day 29: The Missing Eye of David
Post by: GreenMonkeys#1 on March 04, 2013, 09:43:39 PM
David gets a 6. This was a weird episode, with the 4 way Steps and the 3 guards in a row. Wasn't this the episode where Kirk, during the 3rd game, elevated? I highly believe it was this one. However, I do think the Medusa's Lair guard was avoidable and that they could got from the Ledges to the Rock Quarry to the Laser Light Room. And that Swamp guard moment was very funny too  :lol: 
Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes! Day 29: The Missing Eye of David

Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes! Day 29: The Missing Eye of David
Post by: The Red Jaguars on March 04, 2013, 11:10:11 PM
I gave Missing Eye an 8. It was a very unusual and quirky  from start to finish. The Steps of Knowledge round featured in this episode was probably one of the most bizarre Steps round next to "The Trojan Horseshoe". Olmec allowed one question to be answered three times, there was a rare four-way tie on the second to last step (only other episode it happened in was Leonardo Da Vinci), and then there was the classic "Uh, a scaffolding?" line. The temple games were unique and I liked the ending to the team game with Kirk sitting up on the high steps with Emily and Mitchell. The temple run was disappointing, but it wasn't the Silver Snakes fault at all. They were both fast players and it was the lack of a half-pendant that was there downfall. And their half-pendant was well hidden in Medusa's Lair, so you can't blame them for passing it up. But they were both fast and I thought it was awesome and clever for someone to actually pull two books at once in the Crypt.  :mrsilver:  Overall, the Silver Snakes weren't a bad team at all, just a bad outcome. And the ending with Emily being allowed a few extra seconds to make progress was hilarious too. :lol:

IIRC, the Rock Quarry did not open from the Laser Light Room when Emily completed the room objective. So I don't think there was an alternate path. But I could be wrong.

Post by: GreenMonkeys#1 on March 05, 2013, 07:06:17 AM
So we know that there was no alternate path, but the half-pendant location was just stupid. If it was on the Troubled Bridge/Observatory actuator, it would be a lot more visible to the players.
Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes! Day 29: The Missing Eye of David
Post by: The Red Jaguars on March 05, 2013, 02:14:49 PM
It was surprising that the half-pendant in "Missing Eye" is not in plain view. Literally every other temple run from Season 2 (minus "Harriet Tubman") had the half-pendant in plain view. And not to mention, Emily and Michael were pretty much forced to encounter all three guards. Really the only triple capture from S2 I have sympathy for.

I was confused at first when you said David got a 7, and then I realized you were referring to an episode and not a contestant. :P

Anyways, I want to give Pirate Captain a 10. This is one of the best and most exciting episodes on the show. It had a cool legend and one of the most funny answers in the Steps of Knowledge that gets accepted - "A musical instrument that does a jig". The temple games were very exciting and competitive and both teams deserved to enter the temple. I actually remember the losing temple teams names - Brent and Mary. Brent also liked to collect bags. :lol: The temple run was also very exciting and Jarrid and Jessica were one of the best teams to enter the temple. It was nice to see a temple team where BOTH players were fast and smart. Jessica attacked that central shaft like it was the S1 temple and Jarrid followed up well. And to top off the well-deserved win, Jarrid is seen playing around with the Lost Hornpipe at the end of the temple run. Overall, this is my third favorite episode (after "The Lucky Pillow of Annie Taylor" and "Lawrence of Arabia's Headdress") and I have no problems with it at all.  :mrgreen:  :monkeys2:

10! :mrgreen: This is clearly one of my favorite episodes (3rd behind Lawrence of Arabia & Apanuugpak). Jarrid & Jessica are probably the best team to ever be in the Temple. Both were fast and knew what they were doing. There was some funny parts too. "The musical instrument that does a jig" :lol: and that the Purple Parrot boy collected bags. After all, this really deserves a 10. Kirk even said that this was one of the best we ever had on the show, I agree!

Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes! Day 31: The Golden Chains of Zenobia
Post by: The Red Jaguars on March 06, 2013, 10:51:25 PM
Golden Chains gets a 6 from me. It was a forgettable episode, but not a bad one at all. In fact, I enjoyed it for a Season One episode. The legend was really good and interesting, and both the Purple Parrots and Orange Iguanas dominated one round. Jennifer and Justin dominated the Purple Parrots in the temple games. They pretty much set the trend for the Orange Iguanas beating up on the Purple Parrots. :P The temple run was slightly above average. Jennifer starts off at a pretty good speed and gets taken out early, but Justin moves slow and messes everything up. They would've had more success if Jennifer went in second. The team did have a long layout to traverse though and they both made it far. I honestly don't have any problems with this episode other than it being forgettable.

Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes! Day 32: The Medal of Sir Edmund Hillary
Post by: The Red Jaguars on March 07, 2013, 09:54:04 PM
Sir Edmund Hillary gets an 8 from me. Now this was a fun episode and MUCH better than most of the average or mediocre episodes in Season 1. The legend is memorable for it being the only that covered a historical figure that was alive at the time it was made. It also had the awkward "Velociraptor" quote in the Steps. The temple games also featured the only time the Silver Snakes swept the temple games. The temple run was a very exciting loss. Both Tara and Danny were fast players and had a fairly long layout. They also had to take the slow Well Bucket on top of that. They still managed to grab the Medal though, but all hope of winning was lost when Tara took the long way out of the temple by going down the central shaft. They still came close and it was very exciting compared to other Season 1 temple runs. They might've been more successful if Tara didn't take a direct path and not go down the central shaft. But it was a good episode and one of the few Silver Snake episodes I enjoy watching.

Sir Edmund Hillary gets an 8. This is one of the most notable Season 1 episodes and that Sir Edmund Hillary was alive when this was recorded. I'm pretty sure if Tara never goes down the shaft, this might be a close finish.

Post by: The Red Jaguars on March 09, 2013, 12:30:48 AM
Jean Lafitte gets a 3 from me also. There is nothing really good about this episode... at all. I did like the legend and it was a bit unusual, but everything else about this episode sucked. The Blue Barracudas barely advanced by each round. Not to mention, they were only one of two teams to go to the temple run due to the other team getting the tiebreaker question wrong. The temple run sucked and was pretty mediocre. Aaron wasted too much time at the top of the temple when and shouldn't have fooled around with the Gargoyle-Troubled Bridge door. His partner was equally as dumb for taking an alternate path while only having 0.5 pendant. Even if the team had more time, Terry Kay moved so slow and her attempt to put the monkey together was laughable. Overall, it was a mediocre and lackluster episode.

Jean Lafitte gets a 3. While scraping by each round, Aaron & Terry-Kay made it because the Red Jaguars choked at the Tiebreaker. There is simply nothing memorable except for different paths in the Temple.

Post by: The Red Jaguars on March 10, 2013, 11:29:41 AM
Henry Morgan gets a 9 from me. It was a great episode and very exciting on top of that too. It had an very interesting legend and probably was my most favorite Pirate legend on the show. :P The temple games were also very fun and competitive also. The Orange Iguanas FINALLY lose a tiebreaker for once. And the temple run featured one of the most exciting losses on the show. Ashley moved fast in the temple, but she got taken out in the Mine Shaft after finding the Dark Forest key but didn't try it. Shem was awesome and had one of the fastest stone column completions on the show. He grabbed the Golden Earring at the last second and both him and Ashley were excited as if they won everything. Very memorable ending and it was nice to see a team that was actually excited just making it to an artifact. And they should be glad too. They had a rare center of the temple artifact reach. Overall, it was a very exciting episode and never gets old.

Next is The Electrified Key of Benjamin Franklin
Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes! Day 35: The Electrified Key of Benjamin Franklin
Post by: The Red Jaguars on March 11, 2013, 12:16:27 AM
Benjamin Franklin gets a 7 from me. It's been a while since I have seen this episode, but I don't remember it being bad at all. The Steps of Knowledge is hilarious for the Green Monkey boy that kept cutting off Olmec. The temple games were also competitive and exciting also. The Blue Barracudas were kind of weak though throughout the whole episode and barely scraped by IIRC. This tiebreaker round was probably the biggest fail after "Xerxes". The Green Monkeys shouts for no reason "AMBASSADOR" "AMBASSADOR" where the question wasn't even asking for that. The Barracudas did answer it correctly though and go onto the temple run.

Not many people seem to like this temple run, but I found it to be exciting. Peter is the one to blame for this loss though. He tried way to hard to make a break for the direct path. By Season 2, you should not expect the bottom door to open from the Pit. :roll: He also entered Medusa's Lair when it could've been avoided and gave him a solo victory. Michelle was a good runner too and she had a fast completion of the King's Storeroom. Unfortunately, she took the Mine Shaft shortcut and wasted time there. She came up one room short of the Electrified Key. Before the "Polynesian Girl" episode, this team came the closest to reaching an artifact from the bottom of the central shaft. So you gotta give Michelle and Peter credit for that. Overall, it was a decent episode that had some quirks to it.

Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes! Day 36: Henry VIII's Great Seal
Post by: The Red Jaguars on March 12, 2013, 12:04:30 AM
Great Seal gets an 8 from me. This was a classic episode and a very quirky one at that. It was one of the 3 episodes showed on 90'sAAT this past summer too along with "Attila the Hun" and "Bifocal Monocle". And unlock those two episodes, this one rocked. The legend was silly for exagerrating the size of Henry VIII's coffin. I remember the temple games for Shay collecting glasses horses and for Nick knocking down Kirk during the soapy floor temple game. And the temple run is memorable for the over-the-top temple guards. :lol: The combination of Shay's screams and Nick jumping out of the temple was great and memorable. They were a good team and would've won if they found the other half-pendant. Probably the best episode that ended in triple capture next to Kamehameha.

Golden Cricket Cage... gets a lowly 1 from me. :roll: This was absolutely a terrible episode with no redeeming value to it at all. There was NOTHING good about it all. Even episodes with bad temple runs have something redeeming about them, but this one was just utter garbage. The legend was stupid and had nothing to do with the artifact itself. The temple game performance was embarrassing and you wonder how John and Tia even made it past them. And we all know the story behind the temple run. It's amazing how BOTH players can be stupid and only make it through four rooms in 3 whole minutes. They couldn't even make it past the Heart Room! :roll: And there is absolutely no excuse for their pitiful performance either. Jammin John and Jennifer from "Galileo's Cannonball" and Jennifer and Damien from "Map to the Lost Gold Mine" also had an early S1 temple run and they did just fine.

I hate this episode. John and Tia were such a waste of space and this episode is a waste of anyone's time. The producers should've done themselves a favor and burn this episode from existence. They should be ashamed of even airing this abomination. Don't touch this episode at all!  :oops:

Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes! Day 37: The Golden Cricket Cage of Khan
Post by: The Red Jaguars on March 13, 2013, 11:05:31 PM
Billy the Kid gets a 9 from me. This was a very strong and solid Purple Parrot episode, and probably the most memorable one too. Kelly and Tony were famous for being one of the most dominant teams to enter the temple - first in the moat, sweep the Steps, win two Pendants in the temple games, and then turn around and win the temple run. It was very exciting to see this team dominate and you can't help to root for them. Case in point, watch Kelly dominate her spitting horse temple game. The temple win was definitely well-deserved, even if it wasn't the hardest layout. The fact that it was the first Purple Parrot win ever makes it more memorable and likable. This was a great episode and this team wholeheartedly deserved their win. While I like "Freydis" a little better, this one is still awesome. :mrpurple:

Clovis the First gets a 4 from me. For the longest time, I didn't even know this episode existed. Nick GaS took forever to air this episode. And when they finally aired it, it was kind of a disappointment. But like many Orange Iguanas episodes, it was average and forgettable. I do remember the legend very well for this episode and it was pretty interesting. The temple games were a close matchup with a rare pendant score of 2-1.5. The temple run was pretty disappointing and Katie and Judge should've done better. I think Katie was a better played than what people make her out to be. She just got a little too confused in the Chamber and it looked like she wasn't taking her time to find the Markers on the wall. They were kind of well-hidden in her defense. At the end of the day though, it should never take one minute to complete a room. That was pretty much this team's downfall during the temple run. Otherwise, it was just a forgettable and average episode.

Lost Taj Mahal Turban is basically the definition of an average episode. I can't think of anything good or bad about this episode at all. Nor I can remember much of anything from this episode either. I always forget that the Purple Parrots lost in the temple games in this episode. The temple run was similar in layout to "The Mystical Spellbook of the Imperial Wizard". Both Dean and Chrystine moved at an average pace and they still came up one room short. Chrystine should've found that half-pendant in the Pit of the Pendulum, but it's not like she didn't know it was there. Not that it mattered, they only had a shot at the second prize. IIRC, there was a character named "Needmore Rupees" in the legend. :roll: Overall, this episode gets a 6 from me.

Smashed Printing Plate is definitely my most hated Red Jaguar episode and it is an embarrassment to my team in general. Yes, I hate it even more than "Blackbeard's Treasure Map" and "The Keys to the Alhambra". If I had a choice to pick the most annoying episode in the series, it will be this one right here. There is nothing likable about it. Jason cheated during the team temple game by jumping to the second row of bamboo poles when you were clearly not suppose to do that. And both players were incompetent in the temple. Jason was so slow and kept backtracking for no reason at all. Plus, he missed a shortcut in the Dark Forest and wastes time taking a longer path. Dana was no prize herself and she doesn't even make it past the Pit with her 30 or so seconds left. She even wastes time trying a different door. -_- Plus, her screaming is obnoxious and extremely annoying.

Frederick Douglass gets a 2. Jason & Dana sucked and are a big disgrace to my 2nd favorite team. It is a miracle they swept the Temple Games. If the Purple Parrots were that bad in the Temple Games, they probably could've done worse in the Temple.  Now one unusual thing was Jason entered the Room of the Secret Password but didn't have to do the objective. Production error :? And if anyone ever got to the Plate, they would probably have a hard time, that looked bigger than the Much Heralded Helmet. Anyway, Jason & Dana should've never been in the Temple. Oh, and one more thing, SHUT UP DANA, WE DON'T HAVE TO HEAR YOU ALL OVER THE COUNTRY. :roll:

Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes! Day 42: The Royal Torque of Queen Boadicea
Post by: The Red Jaguars on March 17, 2013, 09:25:13 PM
Queen Boadicea was a solid episode and my favorite Red Jaguar episode after "Catherine the Great". Lissy and Nate were a strong team prior to the temple. This episode featured a very interesting legend that I remember without having to watch the episode again. The temple games resulted in a Red Jaguar sweep, although the Green Monkeys didn't seem very strong though. Case in point, they didn't even score in the team game. :roll: The temple run was very exciting and the Red Jaguars came close to getting a rare bottom of the central shaft victory. It was all Lissy's fault that they lost though because she moved so slow and wasted time in the Pit. It should not take a whole minute to complete three rooms of the temple. Luckily, Nate was very fast and he even reached the Royal Torque. He even had a good idea of taking the top level out of the temple. The Red Jaguars didn't win in the end, but it was a very exciting a nail biter of an ending. The Jaguars don't have many good episodes, but this one was an exception. Overall, I am going to give this episode a 9.

And is it me or does Nate make all these awkward faces throughout his episode? :lol:

Post by: Legend of Legends on March 17, 2013, 09:36:44 PM
This one gets an 8. Very solid and exciting episode, the only big flaw being that Lissy could've done somewhat better, but otherwise, it is a great episode.

Post by: GreenMonkeys#1 on March 17, 2013, 09:45:13 PM
I'm giving this an 8. There are only three Red Jaguar episodes that made my top 30, this was one of them (Roland, Catherine the Great). Nate did a really great job and really made up time and got to the Torque. This should've been a victory, but it wasn't due to Lissy. She is part of the reason why there were no Bottom of the Central Shaft victories (joining Kristen, Peter, Dana, Janeen, and the Temple Guards in Elizabeth I)

Yeah, Veronica from "Bifocal Monocle" literally spent over a minute to climb out of the Pit. Kristen from "Amelia Earhart" didn't spend any where near as much time as Veronica did. I think Kristen only wasted about 30-40 seconds in the Wall Climb. And Veronica had the convenience of a platform to pull herself on and she still took longer than Kristen. She made Kristen look like a pro with her failed attempt at climbing. :roll:

Stone Marker gets a 5 from me. I will admit that I rewatched this episode after the interview with Keeli was posted.:P It is a very forgettable episode and just average at best. After all, it won the "Most Forgettable Legends Episode" game. The temple run was disappointing, but it wasn't Keeli or Chris's fault at all. The producers should be ashamed of reusing the exact same temple layout as "The Paintbrush of Leonardo Da Vinci". This is probably my shortest episode summary I have wrote yet, but that is because there is nothing really to talk about with this episode. Despite it being very forgettable, it wasn't bad at all but it was pretty boring and uneventful.

Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes! Day 44: The Pearl Necklace of Gwalior
Post by: The Red Jaguars on March 19, 2013, 10:59:05 PM
Gwalior was kind of a forgettable episode in a sense where you forget that it exists sometimes. But still, there are some parts I remember about it. The moat in this episode was different from the other episodes on that day where the teams had to cross the troubled bridge by running across it. In the three other episodes that day (Belle Boyd, Pytheas, and Sojourner Truth) the other teams had to cross it by crawling on their knees. The temple games were pretty close and competitive, and we see a rare 2-1.5 score. The temple run featured a very close encounter with the artifact. It wasn't exciting as the "Blue Pearl" temple loss, but they still came close. If only Ryan and Dawn didn't hesitate so much, then they would've definitely reached it. Overall, it was a decent episode with some interesting parts to it. I will give it a 7.

Post by: The Red Jaguars on March 20, 2013, 10:51:48 PM
Bandit Queen gets a 7 from me. It was a good win and everything, but the episode itself was nothing special. Plus, I have seen it many many many times. I don't even remember much about the early rounds of this episode at all. As for the temple win, it was a pretty solid Silver Snake effort and we get to see one of the fastest runnes to conquer the temple. Unfortunately, Miriam brought this win down a lot and it was a miracle that this team even won since Zac had to haul ass the minute he entered the temple. A pretty solid Silver Snake episode that featured one of the best male players on the show, but I like "Galileo's Cannonball" and "Sultan Saladin" much better than this one.

But even then Zac still got the map and won. However the tiebreaker with Zac saying half the reward first, I'm not sure that would've been accepted if he never said gold.

Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes! Day 46: The Broken Trident of Poseidon
Post by: The Red Jaguars on March 21, 2013, 11:21:46 PM
Poseidon was one of those episodes where the earlier rounds were interesting, but the temple run really does bring it down. I like legends that are about Greek mythology, so that is one highlight of this episode. The temple games were memorable for how unusual the bucking horse game was and Kirk's "That bucking Poseidon" quote. The temple run is infamous for Kimberly's screw-up. Seriously, how do you fail to bring an artifact out after reaching it with about a minute left? And what does all doors open not mean to Kimberly? She deserved to lose after that fail. Not to mention, she never encountered a single guard either. Overall, the temple run really does bring this episode down. So I will give it a 5.
Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes! Day 46: The Broken Trident of Poseidon
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on March 22, 2013, 12:43:45 AM
Yeah, Kimberly had a free win basically handed to her on a silver platter. No temple guards, two full pendants, and doesn't realize she needs to bring the artifact out? I don't care how well she did previously, she really blew it in the temple run.

Also....

Poseidon gets a 5. When you grab the artifact, one thing you should NOT do is run off without it. Kimberly brought this episode down because she dropped the Trident, and then did the Ancient Warriors objective AFTER all the doors were open. :roll: .

Post by: PurpleParrot319 on March 22, 2013, 10:14:12 AM
I also gave it a 6. Even though the ending was very disappointing, I thought this episode was pretty good. The moat was exciting, the legend was good, the temple games were decent, and the temple run was looking good until Kimberly messed up. Overall, not a bad episode. I probably would've given it a 7 or even an 8 if it was a win.

Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes! Day 47: The Bullet Riddled Handbag of Belle Boyd
Post by: The Red Jaguars on March 23, 2013, 12:48:05 AM
Belle Boyd was a great episode and I actually do remember the earlier rounds of the show too. I liked how they used a Civil War figure for their legend as it is a nice change of pace from the mythological and Ancient times ones they use all the time. They made Belle Boyd out to be a badass. :P And just like "Gwalior" and "Pytheas" from the same day, Leah and Matthew both won with a pendant score of 2-1.5. The temple games were competitive and exciting. And the temple loss is also very exciting. It is always exciting to watch two players move fast and complete the rooms fast in the temple, even if they lose. Too bad Leah or Matthew didn't take a shorter path. But they put up a great effort and should be proud and they are probably the second best losing team after Travis and Elisa from "Ivan the Terrible". This was an overlooked and very exciting gem. I will give it an 8 too.  :mrgreen:

I will give Belle Boyd an 8. Matthew & Leah really did a great job throughout the show, yet there was another insane layout. A couple of highlights were a 2-1.5 score in the Temple Games, Kirk's quote "he still had a monkey to put together", and Leah & Matthew's speed. Overall 2nd best team not getting the artifact.

Next up is The Lost Lion Tail of Little John :oops:
Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes! Day 48: The Lost Lion Tail of Little John
Post by: The Red Jaguars on March 24, 2013, 12:38:04 AM
Lost Lion Tail is definitely the weakest link when it comes to Purple Parrot episodes. There was just nothing good about it from the moat to the temple run. At least other bad Purple Parrot temple runs like "Sultan Suleiman" and "Oracle Bowl" had something redeeming about them in the earlier rounds.  The legend made no sense at all. First off, how did none of the other men know that Little John was a woman? And secondly, if Little John scared a wildcat, then why did it leave a Lion Tail behind? And a wild lion in the United States? :roll:

The temple games featured one of the biggest fails also. The Silver Snakes had a big lead in the giant steps temple game where they had to carry a large sign to the top of the steps. Unfortunately, they dropped the sign midway up and had to go all the way back down and start over. Marie and Claude had an open window of opportunity and basically a free pass to the temple. If the Silver Snakes never did that, they would've easily gone into the temple. And the temple run is hardly any better. In fact, it was one of the worst of Season 2. Marie was not too bad since she pretty much lead the team throughout the episode. But Claude on the other hand... he was awful and a lost cause. :roll: He moved so slow and didn't know what to do in any of the rooms of the temple. Seriously, what was his deal? :roll: I think Jackie was even smarter than him. And he didn't know what to do in the Dark Forest. He is the reason why this temple run is such a fail.  :oops:

So yeah, this is one of those episodes where the team does not deserve to go into Olmec's temple. But the Purple Parrots hardly had any temple appearances anyways, so I guess it wasn't too bad that they made it. Unfortunately, they failed there too. I will give this episode a 3.

I want to give Little John a 3. This episode is on my garbage list and Claude and the Silver Snakes failing was the reason why this episode sucked. I can only find one thing good in this entire episode and that was the Half Pendant being found. But the episode still sucked and I would blame Terrible Claude.

BENZIBAB!!11!1!1! is actually a very good and exciting episode besides the fact that the win isn't that great. It had a great legend and pretty quirky legend despite the fact that we don't know who Benzibab really was. :P Annie an Kevin were also pretty enthusiastic contestants and made watching their performance enjoyable. The temple win is indeed kind of overrated too. The temple layout only require the team to complete the bottom floor of the temple. Which was pretty easy for a S3 run. On the other hand, both Kevin and Annie were very fast contestants and finishing over a minute was no fluke. Overall, it was a decent quality episode with a good and enthusiastic team. I give this one an 8. :mrsilver:

Post by: The Red Jaguars on March 25, 2013, 11:00:29 PM
Golden Pepperoni is a classic and very memorable episode at that. The legend was utterly ridiculous and laughable at the same time. Catherine de Medici had nightmares about being chased around her castle because she ate too much pepperoni. Also the name of her psychic was "The Great Linguini".  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  The temple games and moat were very competitive and interesting though. And the most famous part of this episode is the temple run. Aqila made it all the way to the Room of the Secret Password where the Golden Pepperoni was waiting, but she passes it up to go into the MINE SHAFT elevator. :roll: The ending was so disappointing that Chris even fell to his knees at the end. One of the biggest fails on the show's history indeed. Despite the disappointing outcome, the temple run was not anywhere near a disaster people make it out to be and it was very memorable at that. Overall, this is a very memorable and classic episode on the show. It would be a tragedy if you didn't watch it at least once. I will give this one a 7.

Lost Fountain of Youth gets a 4 from me. I honestly forgot that this was an episode for a second. I literally don't remember a detail about the earlier rounds either. The temple run featured a cruel temple layout where the guard was set one room away from the artifact. The only way they would've won is if they encountered all three guards. James wasted time by taking the longest route possible and moved slow and Jessica just didn't know what she was doing. Just your typical forgettable and ridiculously hard temple run and episode.

Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes! Day 51: Ponce de Leon & the Lost Fountain of Youth
Post by: The Red Jaguars on March 27, 2013, 09:40:48 PM
Cracked Crown is definitely my least favorite episode in the whole series and I can't stand to watch it at all. It's one of those episodes where almost everything is bad about it. First off, the moat was horrendously long and painful to sit through. Longest moat on the show? This quite possibly it. You can't blame the players for this one though. Although it shouldn't have taken that long to complete the moat because other episodes like "Johnny Appleseed" and "Empress Theodora" were no where near as long. The legend was pretty boring too.

Now let's move onto the temple games. The second temple game with Kerry and the Green Monkey girl Winter was just awful. Winter literally fell off her horse six seconds into the temple games, giving Kerry the win. And the Green Monkeys sucked during the team game also. And just like the other rounds of this episode, the temple run this had to be mediocre as well. Josh was a pretty fast guy, but he didn't last long in the temple and he wasted time no reason trying the direct path. Really? Kerry though was a disgrace. She was definitely the slowest girl ever on the show. It was like 3 minutes was more than enough time for her to move at her own leisurely pace. How she made it to the Shrine at her pace is beyond me. Oh yeah, she ran into wrong direction after the temple run was up. :roll: She was pretty much the reason why you never send the slow runner in second.

I have seen this episode MANY times and I hate it more each time. It was so bland and uneventful not to mention extremely boring. When every round of an episode is bad, you know to stay away from it. I hate this episode even more than Bifocal Monocle, Kilimanjaro, and Golden Cricket Cage. This suckfest gets a lowly 1 from me.  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:

This suckfest is getting the shit rating of 1. Featuring the longest moat ever at 45 min., this episode sucked from the start. I mean, the Moat was 45 min long according to the Kirk Fogg interview. And one of the Temple games was 7 seconds long :roll: . And Kerry sucked in the Temple. The only good thing I can say is that the half-pendant was found. This episode is on my garbage list and it will stay there, like Cricket Cage, how was this on the 20 episode cycle? :roll: :oops:

Wait, did Kirk flat out state that the Spanish King moat was the moat that was 45 minutes long?  :shock:  I haven't seen the interview in a long time, but I don't think he said it was one particular episode. I think the general consensus is that either this episode or Stone Head had that moat. I have to lean towards Cracked Crown though, but I say that Stone Head is fair game too. It definitely wasn't Empress Theodora or Mush Pot Hat.

Cracked Crown had to be the 45 minute moat. The mist disappeared just as the second team had gonged in. And Kirk made a comment about "what a moat crossing!" that was at the end of the round. Stone Head's wasn't nearly as short, despite the heavy editing.

Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes! Day 53: The Applewood Amulet of Emiliano Zapata
Post by: The Red Jaguars on March 28, 2013, 11:29:11 PM
Emiliano Zapata is a great episode that never gets old to watch. It was memorable for the Blue Barracudas getting eliminated in the moat (luckily they were allowed back at the very end of the season). The legend was also very good and I know a lot about Zapata from history class, so this one interested me. Olivia-Emma and Robert were also very good in the temple games, which came down to a tiebreaker that they won. The temple run may have featured an easy layout, but the ending was a nailbiter and very exciting down to the last second. Olivia-Emma didn't have much time to bring the Applewood Amulet out, but she hauls ass and makes it out of the temple with barely one second left. Maybe players like Chris, Jason (Icarus), and Kimberly should watch to see how to use your time to your fullest. They weren't the best team or had the hardest layout, but I sure don't care. It was a very fun episode from start to finish and I enjoyed every second of it. This one will get a 9.  :mrgreen:

Emiliano Zapata gets a 9. This episode started off quirky with the Silver Snakes replacing the Blue Barracudas due to a spotter's error. The run may have looked simple, but it featured the 3 toughest rooms at the time. Once Olivia-Emma got the artifact, she really hauled ass out for a 1 second victory. Best finish ever :mrgreen:

Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes! Day 54: The Shriveled Hand of Efoua
Post by: The Red Jaguars on March 30, 2013, 12:45:56 AM
Efoua gets a 5 from me. It was a very forgettable episode with a forgettable temple run. I do remember the episode for the creepy legend and the artifact literally being a severed hand.  :shock: It's also memorable for the rare Orange/Blue temple games and I do remember the zipline temple game where the contestants collected masks. The temple run was pretty boring and average. The contestants had to take a long route, but it didn't help that they were slow. Plus, Bobby went up into the Shrine for no reason at the end of the run. Overall, it was just an average episode like most Orange Iguana ones.
Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes! Day 54: The Shriveled Hand of Efoua
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on March 30, 2013, 01:10:19 AM
I also gave Efoua a 5. What a coincidence that I just watched this episode today. XD Besides the creepy artifact/legend and the rare Blue/Orange matchup this episode and temple run was pretty forgettable.

Efoua gets a 5. In my opinion, this is the grossest artifact on the show. When I saw this episode for the first time, I almost puked at the artifact. This episode also featured a rare blue vs orange. And the run was just forgettable.

Post by: The Red Jaguars on March 31, 2013, 12:32:53 AM
Two-Cornered Hat gets an 8 from me. I have seen this episode many times thanks to Nick GaS. But it was actually a good episode, so I can't complain too much. Anyways, the legend was interesting since it revolved around Napoleon who we have all studied in school at one point in our K-12 careers. :P The temple games were also very competitive and exciting to watch. The temple run was also very exciting and the team put up a good effort with a long layout. The main downfall of this run was Carly not trying the Shrine shortcut from the Mine Shaft. Had she done this, then the Jaguars would've had a win in S2. Other than that, both players were fast and they still grabbed the Two-Cornered Hat at the last couple of seconds despite taking the slow elevator. It was a good episode, which the Red Jaguars need considering the rest of them are either forgettable or flat out suck.
Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes! Day 55: The Two Cornered Hat of Napoleon
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on March 31, 2013, 12:40:47 AM
I gave Napoleon a 7. While it was a great temple run, the rest of the episode was kind of average. Even then, it was one of the very few Red Jaguar runs that were actually good. The rest were either forgettable or just plain bad like TRJ said.
Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes! Day 55: The Two Cornered Hat of Napoleon
Post by: GreenMonkeys#1 on March 31, 2013, 08:45:11 AM

Post by: The Red Jaguars on March 31, 2013, 11:39:09 PM
Golden Stallion was just a forgettable Orange Iguana episode like most of them usually are. I do remember the legend for the lame "Open Sunflower, Open Pumpernickel, Open Peanut" quote, which was pretty dumb along with the name Bobby Baba. :roll: The temple run was just your typical Season 2 loss where the team takes a long path and comes up one room short. It really wasn't either player's fault though as the Swamp door wasn't noticeable for any one of them. So they weren't bad players, they just had bad luck. And the team still made it far taking into account the central shaft detour caused them. There is really not much to say about this one except you see it one time and forget that it exists. I will give it a 5.

Post by: GreenMonkeys#1 on April 01, 2013, 06:37:55 AM

Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes! Day 57: The Snake Bracelet of Cleopatra
Post by: The Red Jaguars on April 01, 2013, 11:19:11 PM
When it comes to Season 1 episodes, Snake Bracelet is pretty decent. I liked the legend use for this episode and the artifact looked pretty cool too. The temple games used were pretty interesting and I liked the team game where the players had to collect different pieces of gold. The temple win featured a pretty easy layout, but Robert and Tracy were still a good team. Tracy was kind of lucky she had plenty of time to herself because she did make some weird moves in the temple like trying to enter the Treasury from the Observatory when she wasn't allowed. If Robert went in second, this could've been the fastest team victory on the show. I am going to give this one a 7 because it is a pretty good episode to go back and watch again from time to time.

Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on April 02, 2013, 10:35:11 PM
For me, I will give Dolly Madison an 8. It was a pretty exciting episode, despite the rather disappointing ending to the temple run.
Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes! Day 58: The Bonnet of Dolley Madison
Post by: The Red Jaguars on April 02, 2013, 11:07:13 PM
Dolley Madison is a solid episode from start to finish. A legend that involved the United States President and his wife is very unique to the show and a nice change of pace for once. The Orange Iguanas did get lucky in the Steps though because Ashlie did get three answers wrong. But they turned around and swept the temple games with a very strong performance. I liked the temple game where the players had to match the Presidents with their names. The temple run was very disappointing, but it was also exciting because both players were fast. Matt blazed through five rooms of the temple and had one of the most badass completions of the Stone Column. Unfortunately, he made the mistake of beeling for the direct path and entering the Ledges when he could've went to the Crypt for a solo win. Ashlie was fast herself (albeit a little clumsy), but she still made it far and one room away from the Bonnet with more than a minute left. Unfortunately, she stalled in the Dark Forest a little too long and by the time she entered the Jester's Court, this team had no chance of winning. It was still a very exciting episode episode though and one of the few Iguana episodes I like. I am giving this one an 8.

Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes! Day 59: The Thornwood Gavel of Judge Roy Bean
Post by: The Red Jaguars on April 03, 2013, 10:07:05 PM
Judge Roy Bean is one of the rare episodes where the whole episode besides the temple run is pretty good. This was also one of the few episodes that I did a review on a while ago (need to get back into that!). The legend was very good and interesting. The temple games used were also very unique and fun to watch. I liked the one where they used the giant hamster wheels as a team game and the teams had to break open the piggy banks with a gavel. The temple games also made sense if you watched the legend, which was pretty rare. The temple run was disappointing though, and that was because Kelli screwed everything up. Mike was great and had one of the best and fastest Silver Monkey assemblies on the show. Kelli though tried her hardest to screw everything up. She moved slow, made a useless and unnecessary detour into the King's Storeroom, kept her mouth piece in when you couldn't understand what she was saying and just was so clueless. A perfect of example of when the slow and stupid second runner should go in first. They would've won if Mike had a competent partner. Other than that, it was a good episode so I will give this one a 7.

Post by: GreenMonkeys#1 on April 03, 2013, 10:12:56 PM
Judge Roy Bean gets a 7. I think Mike's effort was totally wasted by Kelli during the run. But beside from the run, the episode was great. It had a rare Season 3 Legend that made sense.

Sorry, but Thornwood Gavel only gets a 5 from me. Interesting temple games aside, this was one of the most boring, most unexciting episodes in the shows history. Mike did just fine, but Kelli was a terrible player. She completely ruined this run and it was totally her fault they lost.

Post by: The Red Jaguars on April 04, 2013, 09:08:09 PM
Mussel-Shell Armor is one of the best wins on the show and is well-liked for a reason. Gator was an amazing player and one of the best on the show. He knew that the only way his team would win is by using all of his talent and might when it was his turn in the temple. Amanda was taken out with about 1:30 left, but Gator took over and won with quite a few seconds to spare. It was a fantastic win and both players were very exciting to watch. What keeps this episode from getting a perfect score was that the earlier rounds just didn't "pull" me in like some of the other wins did (Pirate Captain, Map to the Lost Gold Mine, Annie Taylor, Atocha, and Lawrence of Arabia). They were good, but they weren't exactly memorable or the best IMO. The legend was also kind of silly and lame too. But it was still a great episode and almost in the top 5 favorite episodes all-time. This when gets a 9.  :mrgreen:

I can't believe Bifocal Monocle ranked higher than Spanish King episode. Oh well, both episode sucked anyways although I do remember someone giving Bifocal Monocle a 6 or something lame like that... :o

Anyways, I gave Captain John Smith a 6. It was pretty an average episode, although it is worth a view for a few reasons. The legend talks about the real story of Pocahontas and how she was in love with Captain John Smith. It wasn't like the Disney tale at all. The temple games were kind of interesting too and I liked the net climbing game where they had to find ears of corn and make their end of the scale heavier. The temple run was pretty mediocre though. Derrick moved at an average pace and Whitney was so slow and should've found that half-pendant. Not that it mattered, because I doubt she would've completed the Silver Monkey in time at her pace she was moving. The only real notable thing was that she completed four snakes Medusa's Lair and didn't really struggle as much as Tony did. Overall, it was an average episode with a disappointing temple run.

Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes! Day 62: The Useless Map of the Chibcha Chieftan
Post by: The Red Jaguars on April 07, 2013, 12:29:34 AM
Useless Map was one of the few Orange Iguanas episodes that I enjoyed. The legend about El Dorado was interesting and Hallie and Jared were a good team throughout the episode. They won their first two temple game and came close to entering the temple with two pendants. Unfortunately, they lost their team game but still won the temple games. The temple run had one of the fastest losses on the show, but I sympathize with these two because they just had bad luck with the pass they chose. Like mentioned, Hallie should've stayed to the top of the temple and I think Jared would have enough time to pull off that elusive Dark Forest victory. I can tolerate this triple capture more than garbage like Nathan Hale and Robert the Bruce. And the ending is memorable for how upset Hallie was. Overall, it was a good episode with a bad outcome. But this episode is worth watching from time to time. I give this one a 6.

Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes! Day 63: The Secret Battle Plan of Nathan Hale
Post by: The Red Jaguars on April 08, 2013, 12:00:39 AM
Nathan Hale is a very quirky and controversial episode due to the layout change and the reasoning behind why it change. Some people think it had to do with Christina puking in the Pit while other think it had to do with a production error in the King's Storeroom. For whatever reason, the episode changed from an early to late S2 episode. The episode itself was just average at best. I do remember the temple games for the Silver Snakes losing on a close call in the "Attack Philadelphia" where I think it should've counted for them IMO. The temple run was a pretty big fail though and probably the worst triple capture on the show. James signaled the half-pendant to his partner, Kirk pointed it out to Christina, and it was even in plain sight for everyone to see. Yet, Christina STILL managed to miss it. As a result, we had one of the quickest triple captures on the show. Not that it mattered though, because Christina was pretty slow and she only had a little over a minute left to herself. Overall, despite how average this episode is, it was still very memorable and talked about a lot due to the reasons above. So I am going to give it a 6 for this reason.

Sorry, but Secret Battle Plan gets a 3 from me. One of the worst, most poorly edited episodes ever. And the temple run is one of those pathetic, quick losses because Christina just couldn't find that half pendant SIGNALED to her. Though she should've won that second temple game. :roll:

By the way, the above poll as been fixed.

Post by: The Red Jaguars on April 08, 2013, 10:18:44 PM
Ivan the Terrible is a fun episode and I love going back to watch it. The legend was memorable for how Ivan the Terrible was once Ivan the Kind and how his name became Ivan the Terrible. The temple games were also fun to watch and Travis and Elisa dominated them. The temple run is very fun and tragic at the same time. Travis and Elisa literally didn't do anything wrong in the temple and they still lost. This is one of the few episodes where it wasn't the player's fault that they lost, it was totally on the producers. It's a shame because these two would've won on almost any other layout. It is still a great episode and one of the most exciting in the whole series. Overall, this episode is great and I would highly recommend this one for anyone to watch. Plus, Travis and Elisa's enthusiasm made this episode more enjoyable. I give this one a 9.  :mrgreen:  :mrgreen:  :mrgreen:  :mrgreen:

Discarded Seal should get a 9. This has to be the most unfair run in the entire series. Travis & Elise did nothing wrong & they still couldn't even get to the artifact. It was just brutal.

Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes! Day 65: Pecos Bill's Lost Lariat
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on April 09, 2013, 09:31:03 PM
I gave Pecos Bill a 7. It was a pretty exciting episode with some very enthusiastic teams. What brings it down is the temple run. This should've been a win. Instead, Chris moved like a slowpoke and Kirk should never have told Chris to "bust through the wall." Even though it would've helped if Colleen hadn't gone down into the Heart Room, Chris is mostly to blame for why this team lost.

Sorry, but Pecos Bill should get a 6. If Kirk never told Chris to bust through the wall, he would've won. And if Colleen never visited the Heart Room, it would've been a solo run. But, like I said in the other topic, all the blame goes to Chris.
Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes! Day 65: Pecos Bill's Lost Lariat
Post by: The Red Jaguars on April 09, 2013, 10:55:22 PM
Lost Lariat was a fun episode and one of those episodes where everything was good besides the temple run. I remember the legend for Pecos Bill being able to ride tornadoes and how lame and uninspiring the artifact looked. In the temple games, the Green Monkey girl had a very good horse impression. Seriously, that sounded almost real. :o The temple run was disappointing though, but at the same time though it was sort of exciting too. Colleen was super fast, but she got taken out quick and even missed an opportunity for a solo win. Chris was so slow and dumb though. There is no excuse why he couldn't bring the Lost Lariat out in time. If he didn't screw around so much and put his butt into gear, this would've been a decent win. I blame this loss on him. If it wasn't for the temple run, I would rank it higher. Overall, this gets a 7 from me.

Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on April 10, 2013, 10:02:32 PM
I gave Icarus a 7. It was actually a pretty exciting episode. The Green Monkeys and the Silver Snakes were neck and neck the entire episode. Only to have the Silver Snakes choke at the tiebreaker, with the Green Monkeys going to the temple. The temple run was really frustrating. Jason was so clueless, but it did make for a nailbiter ending. He could've won easily if it wasn't for his screwing around.

Post by: The Red Jaguars on April 10, 2013, 11:13:08 PM

Oops, Colleen did not make the horse noises.  :P

Anyways, Icarus reminds me of "Lost Lariat" where everything else about the episode was good except for the temple run. As PPF mentioned, the Green Monkeys and Silver Snakes were very competitive and came close in each round. There was a double sweep at the Steps of Knowledge. Was this the only episode that it happened? The legend was also good too. I enjoy the temple games for being competitive, but Jason and April really should've won the team game. The Silver Snakes did choke in the tiebreaker though. I mean come on now. How did they not know that Atlantis was the answer? Even a third grader would've gotten that. The temple run was one of the biggest fails on the show and Jason deserved to lose after that screw up. He wasted his whole time hesitating and backtracking to rooms that were not completed. Even after grabbing the Broken Wing, he STILL can't bring it out. Plus, his exit plan sucked. This was the closest loss on the show, but it was more painful than exciting compared to other close losses like "Polynesian Girl" and "Johnny Appleseed". I will give this one a 7 though since the whole episode altogether was good.

*looks at the episode for tomorrow*

I will also give Snow Cone a lowly 1.  :oops:  :oops:  :oops:  This may very well be the worst episode in the whole series. I can't think of ANYTHING good to say about this episode. The legend was so lame and was so horribly incorrect that it was laughable. It was like they took random images and threw it together and called it an episode plot. The artifact looks equally as lame and looks like some cup with overflowing beer. Both teams in the temple games were terrible too. So it was basically the less suckier of the two going to the temple. And holy hell was that temple run terrible. They only made it through 5 rooms in three minutes. And on the bottom floor of the temple too, where it was much easier in S3 than the central shaft and top floor. Casey was horrible and he wasted too much time on each objective. He must've tried each Jester's Court painting 2-3 times. And he literally ran into the Dark Forest's temple spirit while the arms were moving around. Heather was pathetic too and she didn't make any progress with a minute left. This was a horrible episode and it was one of the last episodes I ever watched. And believe me, it is NOT worth it. Between Bifocal Monocle and this one, I am not sure which is worse. I will give it to Kilimanjaro though because at least Bifocal Monocle was the first episode of S3, so it sort of has an excuse.  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:

And was the door suppose to unlock for Heather in the Dark Forest? To me, it seemed like she forced it open with her hands.  :roll:

Yep, Snow cone got a solid 1, making it the worst episode. The only ones that will compete with this is John Henry's Lost Hammer, and Blackbeard's Treasure Map.

And Nostradamus gets a 9. One of the best runs in Season 2. I like how Jason used the leash to escape.

Well, at least the earlier rounds of Golden Cricket Cage were sort of okay. At least John and Tia won the temple games fairly and the legend was sort of interesting. Snow Cone had nothing good about it at all.

Anyways. Nostradamus was my second favorite Orange Iguana episode on the show. Jason and Elizabeth were a pretty enthusiastic team, making the episode more enjoyable to watch. The legend was interesting, the temple games were close, and the temple run was a solid victory featuring two smart players. Jason was also clever to use the Dog Leash to reach the rope in the Pit. It saved him both time and a detour through the Ledges. The only episode that I like better than this one is Atocha. Other than that, this is a very solid episode that never gets old. It will get an 8 from me.  :mrorange:

Harriet Tubman gets a 5 from me. Not much to say about this episode itself, except that it was just average. I don't remember any of the earlier rounds either. I do remember the temple games for the rare Orange/Blue matchup. The temple run itself was a big fail and one of the quirkiest endings to a temple run on the show. Chris made good progress in the temple and had a path cleared out all the way to the Shrine. Ryann only lasted in the temple for a few seconds before being taken out in the Crypt, which held the last temple guard. This would've been avoided if she just followed her partner's path. As a result of Ryann's inattentiveness, we have one of the fastest losses on the show. Too bad, because this outcome could've been easily avoided. Overall, it was just an average temple run with a lackluster and very disappointing temple ending.

Post by: The Red Jaguars on April 14, 2013, 08:54:33 PM
Johnny Appleseed was a decent episode and one of the few Orange Iguana episodes I actually enjoyed. This episode featured the moat crossing as "Stone Head" and "Spanish King", but it wasn't as long and painful as they were. I always thought the artifact was a bit unusual too. The temple games also featured some close competition and some interesting temple games, most notably the zipline temple game. The temple games ended with Orange beating Green 2-1.5. The temple run was a pretty exciting and close loss. Both Chris and Angela moved at a good pace, but they also stalled too much in the Pit. It didn't help that they were forced to take the Mine Shaft elevator. If it wasn't for that, they would've had a close win. The ending was still pretty exciting and came down to the wire. It was a pretty good episode overall and you should definitely go back and watch it. I will give it a 7.

Post by: The Red Jaguars on April 15, 2013, 10:57:31 PM
Mary Shelley was actually a good and enjoyable episode to watch IMO. It reminds me of "Golden Pepperoni" where the earlier rounds of the episode were good while the temple run was quirky with a hilarious ending. The legend was very good and I liked the horror theme they used throughout the episode. The temple games used were also pretty unique and followed the horror theme like the legend did. The temple run was average at best, but it was also hilarious and pretty memorable if you ask me. The Blue Barracudas did okay in the temple. but it was their actions that made it more enjoyable to watch. From Kate's silly expressions, Larry's awkward running through the rooms, and the abomination of a monkey at the end of the run, it was definitely memorable even if the outcome sucked. And Kate throughout the whole episode in general was pretty goofy with her expressions, even if she was getting a little over-the-top with them. Overall, it was a very memorable episode and I think I will give it a 7.

Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes! Day 72: The Very Tall Turban of Ahmed Baba
Post by: The Red Jaguars on April 16, 2013, 11:03:25 PM
I know this won't be a popular opinion, but I will give Ahmed Baba a 5. Aside from being a win, this episode is pretty average and uneventful. While I am not a fan of the win by any means, that is not the reason why I am giving it a low score. I am not a fan of "Enormous Iron Nose Ring" either, but I enjoy the whole episode for the memorable temple games and Joel's enthusiasm. When it comes to "Ahmed Baba", there is just nothing about this episode that "pulls" me into it. I suppose the team game is memorable for the Purple Parrots choking. But that is not really in favor of Jamie and Shane. The temple win was just average and boring. Not to mention, Shane's strategy was very flawed and it would've been deadly if that last temple guard was on the upper floor. People like to harp on Missy and Tiffani for having lucky layouts, but at least they used shortcuts. Shane got lucky with the path he took. It was a good accomplishment for completing 9 rooms enroute to the artifact, but many teams could've done that given Shane's temple layout. The teams that have used Shane's strategy usually ended up failing because they met an extra temple guard on their path.

It was a decent win and everything, but the whole episode and win is forgettable and pretty boring. I just can't push myself to watch this episode since it's so uneventful. This is definitely my least favorite Green Monkeys win.
Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes! Day 72: The Very Tall Turban of Ahmed Baba
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on April 16, 2013, 11:13:31 PM
Yeah, gotta give this a 5, for the same reasons as TRJ stated. Sorry, but this entire episode let alone temple run, was extremely boring. The only thing that's even remotely interesting about this episode is the unique temple game sequence. (And rare usage of the third temple game). But other than that, it's on par with "The Diary of Dr. Livingstone" as the most forgettable episode and victory ever. And Shane is very overrated. That's not skill, that's called luck. Any team could've won with the exact same temple guard set up. At least the likes of Tarrah and Missy used shortcuts, and had some excitement to their temple run. Shane didn't, there's NO similarities between Tall Turban and the aforementioned runs. Then Chandra from "The Leopard Skin Cloak of Annie Oakley" has a near identical path, and she gets taken out one room away. :roll: Not to mention, Shane had little to no enthusiasm the whole episode. Which I suppose can't be helped by him. Overall, Shane was just plain average in every aspect and this victory is not exciting at all. I prefer wins like "Billy the Kid" and "Galileo's Cannonball" over this.

I gave Ahmed Baba an 8! I really thought this was a solid episode. All of the rounds were pretty fun to watch if you ask me. The moat was competitive, the legend was alright, the steps were fun to watch, the temple games were solid (especially the last one), and the temple run didn't disappoint. Overall, a very good episode.

As for Upside-Down Compass, I'll give it a 6. Kind of forgettable, but it wasn't bad at all. Just your typical episode with nothing interesting happening. The end of the temple run was interesting though.

Anyway, "Upside-Down Compass" gets a 4 from me. Pretty forgettable episode, and a pretty bad Temple Run too.

How was the temple run bad? Their layout was hard, plus it wasn't like Derek dropped the monkey on purpose.

Henry Hudson gets a 6 from me also. The Purple Parrots did not have many temple run appearances in Season 3. In fact, this was their only one next to "Egyptian Queen". The artifact was interesting and one of those episodes where you want to watch the legend to find out what it is about.  Sherra and Derek were also very strong pre-temple round - they swept the Steps and Temple Games. I never found the temple run to be hard though. It was just a tough layout, but it didn't help that these two kind of moved slow. The ending was pretty hilarious for both the awkward Silver Monkey drop and the bad camera angle. How did he drop it with only two seconds left? Overall, this episode was pretty boring and only worth watching the first couple of times.

Post by: The Red Jaguars on April 18, 2013, 10:57:07 PM
Belshazzar was a pretty special and quirky episode for several reasons. It's obvious that this was the episode that took 18 hours to produce. That was probably why the temple run was delayed. Kirk Fogg seem so out of synch in this episode too and he lacked so much enthusiasm. I also remember the line "You will have to find one of the Golden Cups of Belshazzar and bring them back here." Was that used in any other episode? The rest of the episode was pretty average. Kathrine and Sean totally got shafted in the temple run. The Room of Harmonic Convergence dead end was so brutal and wasted too much time for them. By the time Katherine retreated from that room, there was no hope at winning. They should've reran the temple run over until the producers got it right. This episode is pretty memorable if you ask me. We all talk about it for all the early quirks that were a part of it and how it was the first episode ever produced. Taking all of this into account, I will give this one a 6.

I forgot that it was used in Galileo's Cannonball. Thank God they dropped it though. It sounded so lame and made it seem like there were more than one of each artifact. Those early episodes were probably a learning experience from the players to Kirk and Dee Bradley Baker.

Another perfect 10.  "Catherine the Great" was so close to a perfect episode, it's unbelievable.  The only two that are better, IMO, are "Apanuugpak" and "Pirate Captain".
Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes Day 75: The Jewel Encrusted Egg of Catherine the Great
Post by: The Red Jaguars on April 20, 2013, 12:41:44 AM
There are six episodes on the whole series that deserves a perfect 10 (Pirate Captain and Map to the Lost Gold Mine being two of them, the other three I will reveal later), and "Catherine the Great" is one of them. The producers went above and beyond with this whole episode. The legend was very good and the artifact design was one of the best in the series. This was one of the few temple games where I remember all of the players: Kristin wanted to be a fashion designer, Kris wanted to be a marine biologist, Orange Iguana boy wanted to be a computer technologist, and Orange Iguana girl wanted to do journalist. The temple games were very exciting and close too. The temple run was also very exciting and never gets old. It is also easily my favorite Red Jaguar run on the whole series. Kris and Kristen were really good players from Kristen's head first dive into the Pit to the team's fast speed in the temple. The episode is also memorable for the fancy camera work, including the one shot where Kirk is chased into the Pit by the cameraman. Overall, this episode ended an amazing series with a bang and is also the best Red Jaguar episode ever. I give this one a 10.  :mrred:

But I was going to give it a 10 either way because I am a Red Jaguars fan and it was a good way to end the series.  :mrred:

It was Pirate Captain that got a perfect 10 also. Apanuugpak and Map to the Lost Gold Mine came very close. I gave Apanuugpak a 9 though just because the earlier rounds of the show just didn't really pull me in. Although I do think we will end up with a couple of more episodes with a 10.

Finally we are getting more people to vote in these polls.  :mryellow:

Lion-Slashed Jacket was indeed a pretty lackluster and boring episode. I forgot that this episode existed until we covered it in this poll. I hardly remember much of anything from this episode. The temple games in this one were sort of unique, like the one that involved grabbing the different U.S. states while inside the giant human wheel temple game. I do remember the interesting tiebreaker question for this episode also. The temple run was pretty average and boring, and the players were pretty average too. It didn't help that they had to ascend the entire central shaft either. Their slow speed didn't do any of the player's a favor though. Although Mike moved pretty quick IMO. They still finished one room away though, so it definitely wasn't a bad temple run at all. Overall, it was a pretty boring and uneventful episode. I will give it a 5.

Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes! Day 77: The Jeweled Necklace of Montezuma
Post by: The Red Jaguars on April 21, 2013, 11:39:39 PM
Montezuma was one of the better Red Jaguar episodes on the show and it was pretty memorable despite the screw job in the temple run. I remember the interesting legend for how Hernan Cortez conquered the Aztec. The artifact was pretty lame though and it looked like one of the producer's five year old daughter made it. :roll: The temple games were pretty good also. The temple run was sort of exciting because the Red Jaguars moved fast and came close to the Jeweled Necklace. Unfortunately, they also made stupid mistakes that could've been avoided. Kevin could've avoided two temple guards if he didn't beeline for the direct path and Kelly messed up big time in the Shrine. She couldn't even fully assemble the monkey even after the torso was thrown back to her. :roll: It should've been a solo win either way since the layout was similar to "Babe the Ox". Overall, it was a good episode in my eyes with a memorable and disappointing temple run. I will give it a 7.
Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes! Day 77: The Jeweled Necklace of Montezuma

Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes! Day 78: Elizabeth I's Golden Ship
Post by: The Red Jaguars on April 22, 2013, 11:14:21 PM
Golden Ship was part of the trio of mediocre episodes from S1L2 (Lost Hammer and Golden Cricket Cage being the other two). Unlike the other two I named, at least this one was sort of watchable. But that is not saying much because it was still pretty boring and average. Every round of this episode just seemed so mediocre. I do remember the "wig incident" in Gabby's temple game where there were only 3 wigs when there was suppose to be 4. As a result, both Gabby and the Purple Parrot boy waste their remaining time finding the last wig. :lol: The temple run was the quickest capture on the show. It wasn't really Gabby and Joe's fault for the outcome, but boy did these two move slow. You should NOT have 1:30 on the clock after entering four rooms that were hit the actuators. If they moved at an average pace, they would've finished with 2:00+ minutes on the clock. Overall, it was a mediocre episode that is not even worth watching after the first view. And don't bother with the temple run either, there is literally nothing to watch about it. I will give it a 5 too.

I gave Star of Sultan Saladin an 8. :mrsilver: It was a great episode, and totally deserves a ranking higher than Golden Ship. Both the whole episode, and the temple run itself. So what if Lea took a direct path? She did just fine, and dodged a temple guard.
Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes! Day 79: The Star of Sultan Saladin
Post by: The Red Jaguars on April 23, 2013, 10:45:51 PM
Sultan Saladin was a classic episode and one of the best of Season 1. Every round was good and fun to watch. The legend was interesting and the temple games were competitive and fun to watch. The temple run was a solid solo win. I don't care if Lea tried for the direct path or if she hesitated in a couple of rooms. She did great and was also a fast runner in the temple. Not to mention, it's not like Observatory wins were easy either and she was the first one to receive a solo win. The ending is also memorable for how long the post temple run interview was. Furthermore, I remember this episode being used for the "Legends Redub". :lol: I highly recommend anyone to watch this episode and temple win because it is very exciting. This is my favorite Silver Snake solo win and my second favorite Snake win altogehter. This one will get a 9.

Butch Cassidy gets a 6 from me. It's memorable to say the least. From the close Moat where Paula just barely made it to the very last second of the final temple game, it was memorable. The other rounds were lacking though.

Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes! Day 80: The Silver Horseshoe of Butch Cassidy
Post by: The Red Jaguars on April 24, 2013, 10:15:54 PM
I will also give Butch Cassidy a 6. Just like PP319 mentioned, this episode is pretty memorable even if Paula and Matt scraped by each round of the temple. They did have some close calls in some of the rounds of the show like the moat and temple games. Their only real dominance was in the Steps of Knowledge. The temple games is memorable for the controversial call that involved Paula falling off the horse at the last second and not getting called out for it. As a result, it gave the Orange Iguanas a window of opportunity to get a second chance of going to the temple which included answering the tiebreaker. The temple win was pretty lame and boring too. All Paula had to do was run through rooms with actuators with an easy path to the artifact. She still had a quick finish though and scored the Orange Iguanas first win. This is my second least favorite win after "Geronimo". Overall, the episode was just average and the highlights of them were the Orange Iguanas winning on close calls. But like mentioned, at least the episode is watchable.

Post by: The Red Jaguars on April 25, 2013, 11:50:27 PM
Gordian Knot is such an average episode that I don't remember much about. I always thought the artifact was a little strange, but the legend about the Gordian Knot was actually a true story. I remember the temple games for how the players wore the sweat pants even though they normally wear shorts. The temple run was just an average loss, and nothing good or bad about it. Tim was a fast runner, but he got taken out early. Mandy was a little slower than Tim, but her biggest mistake was that she took the Well bucket. Had she not done this, I am sure they would've reached the Knot. And for a second, I forgot that we haven't even covered this episode yet. :P Overall, it was a forgettable episode with an average outcome. I give it a 5.

Post by: The Red Jaguars on April 27, 2013, 12:36:59 AM
Lost Hammer was an episode I just watched today due to ranking S1L2 for my "Player Rankings" thread. :P This episode is pretty infamous for the piss poor temple run and big fail known as Kim, but the other rounds of the episode were not bad at all. In fact, I didn't mind the earlier rounds too much at all. Kim and Billy were pretty strong contestants prior to the temple including finishing first in the moat and winning two pendants in the temple games. So it's not like they scraped by every round like John and Tia or Kristen and Scott. The temple run was absolutely deplorable though. Kim literally spent half of her run not knowing how to push an actuator. Come on now, how is that giant red button next to the door not obvious enough? :roll: She was pushing on the doors in the Wall Climb trying to get them open. And it wasn't just that area where she got confused. She also got lost in the Heart Room too and it was getting so bad that they had to send in what looks like a mercy guard.  :o By the time she got taken out, there was no chance for them winning. Billy was a better contestant than Kim. He wasted time for no reason in the Spider's Lair, but the team still made it two rooms away from the artifact despite Kim's utter stupidity. At the end of the day, it was pretty much a below average episode with a piss poor temple run that makes you want to avoid it. It's not an episode I would want to go back and watch but at least it had SOME redeeming value to it and not a lost cause like a dozen other episodes. So I will give it a 3.

Up until the Temple Run, Kim & Billy were doing fairly decent.  Kim's piss-poor performance in the Temple drives the score way down, though.

Another 3 from me.

What a breath of fresh air compared to the previous episode. :mrsilver:

And Galileo's Cannonball gets an 8 from me. One of the best episodes ever, from the ridiculous "pepperoni pizza" line, to the one second win.
Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes! Day 83: Galileo's Cannonball
Post by: GreenMonkeys#1 on April 27, 2013, 10:55:05 PM
Galileo gets a 9. This was such an amazing episode. Jammin Jon and Jennifer were probably one of the best teams on Legends. They were first in the Moat, Swept the Steps, won 1.5 pendants, and won with 1 second left. The Legend was historically accurate until the part where the cannonballs landed on sandwiches, therefore proving his theory and inventing Pizza  :roll: The Run was the highlight of the episode and Jammin Jon took care of business, grabbed the Cannonball with 44 seconds left and escaped with 1 second left. He even dropped the cannonball in the process :lol: . This is my second favorite Silver Snake episode (Bandit Queen) and is definitely third in Season 1 (Lawrence of Arabia, John Sutter)  :mrsilver: :mrsilver: :mrsilver:

I gave Galileo's Cannonball a 9 also. This is my favorite Silver Snake episode on the whole show. It was definitely an unusual and awkward episode due to being one of the first episodes ever recorded. But that didn't stop it from being a memorable experience. Like GM1 mentioned, Jammin John and Jennifer were a very strong team. First in the moat, Steps of Knowledge sweep, 1.5 pendants in the temple games, and of course the exciting one second win. Yeah, the legend was pretty lame and ridiculous. I don't think many 8-10 year olds would think that pepperoni pizza was invented by Galileo dropping cannonballs from the Tower of Pisa. :roll: You can tell that line was forced and even Kirk thought it was lame. The temple games were very fun and Jennifer had a thing going on for Jammin John (she puts a lot of emphasis on his name).  :mrsilver: The temple win is very exciting IMO and both Silver Snakes did a good job. Jennifer was a little slow and got sidetracked a few times, but she still fared well in the temple. John was definitely the star though and did a great job following up on her path. The ending came down to the wire and he even dropped the Cannonball out of his hand before crossing the temple gates. Plus, the temple guard guiding Jennifer up into the Heart Room was also memorable. Overall, this was a great episode and win for one of the earliest episodes on the show. These two did an outstanding job considering what they had to go through. My favorite Silver Snake episode on the show.  :mrsilver:

Next is King Tut's Cobra Staff
Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes! Day 83: Galileo's Cannonball
Post by: The Red Jaguars on April 28, 2013, 09:49:23 PM
I am glad Galileo's Cannonball finished with that high of a score. I thought people would rate it low due to how awkward it was for one of the very first episodes. But I didn't expect it finish with a 9. No complaints from me.  :mrsilver:

Cobra Staff gets an 8 from me. This episode falls in the "not as bad of an episode as people make it out to be" category. The episode was actually very good and memorable IMO. The legend was a good topic to talk about and they nailed the artifact location pretty well. The highlight of this episode was the unique temple games which used the "mummy wrapping" game. This game was only used twice on the show, the other episode being "Blue Pearl". The temple games were very fun to watch and probably one of the best rounds on the show in S1. The temple run was pretty exciting too, even if they should've won. Eusinia was the real reason the team lost though. She moved fast, but this girl was running all over the temple. Had she not made that detour down into the Throne Room, this team would've won. David had his head together though but he moved a little slow. The team still grabbed the artifact at the last couple of seconds, so it's not like this run is a complete waste. This was a pretty memorable episode and one of the few Purple Parrot episodes I remember from my childhood. Don't let people fool you on what they say about the temple run. Eusinia does bring this episode down, but the rest of it is very good and fun to watch.

Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on April 28, 2013, 09:52:39 PM
Yeah, I also gave King Tut's Cobra staff an 8. For the same reasons TRJ stated. I don't consider Eusinia a bad player at all, she was just easily confused. Plus, the rest of this episode was very exciting. Especially the third temple game with the mummy wrap, also used in the Blue Pearl episode.

8, This is a better episode than what people think. The location was perfect for a Season 1 artifact and the Third game was ultra rare. Eusinia brings the run down a bit, but hey, at least they got the Staff  :mrpurple: .

Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes! Day 85: The Leopard Skin Cloak of Annie Oakley
Post by: The Red Jaguars on April 29, 2013, 11:10:32 PM
Annie Oakley was a very memorable and strong Purple Parrot experience. I pretty much know every detail about this episode because I watched it dozen of times for a good reason.  :mrpurple: The legend about Sharp Shooter Annie was one of my favorite legends on the show. I think a member here said they were related to Annie Oakley? Although I am not sure what the artifact had to do with the legend and why it was randomly placed into Medusa's Lair. The temple games were also fun and I liked the trapeze game where the player's had to put cannonballs into the Ace of Spades hole. As mention, Chandra and Nick were a very dominant team and had probably the most dominating team on the show from a losing team - First in the moat, first in the Steps of Knowledge (wasn't it a sweep?), and a temple game sweep also. Unlike the Purple Parrot team following them (Billy the Kid), these two did not win in the temple. Chandra made the mistake of taking the Mine Shaft elevator instead of trying the Shrine passage. Luckily, Nick realized her mistake but too much time was loss by the time he made it to where she was taken out. They would've won if it wasn't for this mistake. The temple guard layout was pretty unfair though and one of the reasons why I don't think the "Ahmed Baba" win was that great. Either way, the temple loss was exciting and Chandra and Nick gave the Purple Parrots a good reputation despite not winning it all. I will give it a 9 also.  :mrpurple:  :mrpurple:

Post by: The Red Jaguars on May 01, 2013, 01:09:15 AM
Hans Holbein is an episode I have seen many times thanks to Nick Gas. The whole episode is pretty average and nothing noteworthy really stands out about it aside from the Blue Barracudas dominance. The legend is kind if awkward for the artifact being about Henry VIII. The temple run contained an impossible layout like the other runs that day. Rachel and Keith were too slow anyways and wouldn't have won. Plus, Rachel's screaming was annoying and her voice was irritating to listen to. Nothing really to this episode, so I will give it a 5.
Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes! Day 86: The Missing Portrait of Hans Holbein
Post by: The Bandit King on May 01, 2013, 08:30:16 PM
I'll be a bit more generous and give Hans Holbein a 6. It was pretty uneventful, sure, but the Temple run was quite good, and the team did a pretty fair job with the brutal layout they were given.

I give this one an 8.  It's definitely the most heartbreaking loss in the show's history, as they were literally within an eyelash of grabbing the Pearl.  If the other rounds were more exciting, I'd have no trouble ranking this one higher, but it does finish strong from me.
Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes! Day 87: The Dragon Lady & the Blue Pearl
Post by: The Red Jaguars on May 01, 2013, 11:05:40 PM
Blue Pearl was a very exciting and memorable episode that never gets old. It was another episode that was shown on Nick GaS a lot, but I didn't mind at all. The legend was probably my all time favorite legend on the show and the artifact was very creative too. Just like in the "Cobra Staff" episode, the temple game round for this episode was the highlight of it. This was one of the two temple game rounds to feature the mummy wrapping game. I still wonder why they didn't use this in any of the other episodes that day besides Cobra Staff? It also used one of my other favorite temple games from S1, which was the dragon tunnel game. The temple run was one of the most exciting losses behind "Polynesian Girl" and "Ivan the Terrible". Albert was kind of a slow and clueless frontrunner, but you can blame the Treasure Room guard for that. The guard scared him so bad that he got sidetracked by it and confused. In the Shrine, he also got confused there and finally got his act together when Kirk told him that he was assembling the monkey run. He got taken out one room away from the Blue Pearl. Jennifer hauled her ass all the way to the Tomb of the Ancient Kings, which included another trip through the super slow Well bucket. She made it into the Holes of Python where she was just a couple of inches from grabbing! She might've been able to grab it if she didn't go for the dramatic dive. The temple loss was very exciting though and was a nailbiter down to the very last second. They might've won if Albert got his act together earlier. At the end of the day though, some temple runs are better as losses. Which is why I give this one a 9. :mrorange:

Post by: GreenMonkeys#1 on May 02, 2013, 07:10:36 AM

I gave Atahualpa an 8. Very exciting episode, from the temple games to the temple run. It would've been a solo win if Chris didn't detour into the Heart Room. Oh well, at least Tracy grabbed the artifact at the last second.
Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes! Day 88: The Golden Jaguar of Atahualpa
Post by: GreenMonkeys#1 on May 02, 2013, 10:28:19 PM
8. This kicked off the first of many Purple Parrot tiebreaker losses. The Blue Barracudas were a strong team but made one very critical mistake with Chris going into the lowsy Heart Room. The artifact was grabbed still but this run should've been solo.
Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes! Day 88: The Golden Jaguar of Atahualpa
Post by: The Red Jaguars on May 02, 2013, 11:42:26 PM
Golden Jaguar gets an 8 from me also. It was a pretty enjoyable Season 1 episode with a few quirks to it. The legend was pretty interesting and good IMO. The temple games were very competitive even though the Blue Barracudas only won their team game and turned around and won the tiebreaker. The temple games also had the "By the look of thinks, you look a little soapy" quote from Kirk in the slippery slopes game. The temple run was a pretty close loss, but the team is only to be blame for them losing. Robert ran into the Heart Room and through any chances at a solo victory out of the temple. Had he not done this, then they would've had a shot at a solo victory. Tracy did a solid job following his steps and assembling the Monkey at the last second. But time ended a couple of seconds after the artifact was grabbed. This was also the only Blue Barracuda failed escape on the show. This episode is more of an obscure gem IMO and it is worth the watch. One of my favorite losses on the show despite the silly temple game quote and temple run dead ends.  :mrblue:

Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes! Day 89: The Pendant of Kamehameha
Post by: The Red Jaguars on May 04, 2013, 12:40:12 AM
Kamehameha was one of the rare episodes that were enjoyable despite ending in triple capture. Robbie and Tina were pretty strong prior to the temple despite only winning one pendant in the temple games. I liked Robbie's individual game where they had to assemble the Hawaiian warrior by climbing the wall. Unfortunately, they loss their team game which cost them an additional pendant. At least they won the tiebreaker though unlike another episode that day. :roll: The temple run was a very exciting loss despite the outcome of it. Robbie was a very fast contestant, but he made the mistake of taking the direct path which set them up for triple capture. Tina followed up pretty well despite almost pulling a "Harriet Tubman" by running into the Gargoyle Room. When it looks like Tina would make a grab for the Pendant, she gets taken out by a guard from the Dungeon. Everyone in the audience was upset and both Tina and Robbie looked bummed out. Too bad, they would've won if they didn't take such a long path. But the ending was still a memorable heartbreaker and they should be proud of completing almost all rooms of the temple with a little less than two minutes on the clock. I will give this one an 8 also.

8. This episode was actually my 120th episode that I saw (just pointing it out  :P). At least the Silver Snakes won the tiebreaker here unlike the other tiebreaker that day   :roll: . The ending of this run was such a heart breaker. The most unusual guard encounter happened when Tina plowed through the wall to the Tomb of Ancient Kings, then a guard emerges from the DUNGEON to take Tina out.

Lucky Pillow gets a perfect 10. :mrblue: This to me, is the best episode ever. It was like Kirk, Olmec, and the teams were excited to be there. The temple games came down to a 1-1 pendant tie between the Blue Barracudas and the Purple Parrots. John and Missy won and we see the boob grab seen around the world. And the temple run is just amazing. Anyone who doesn't like this temple run just doesn't know a good victory when they see one. Missy may not have been fast and tried for a direct path once, but she was a very smart player who knew what to do in every room. Furthermore, she was the first player to retrieve an artifact successfully from the center of the room. Something most contestants before AND after her have failed to do. And her emotional personality just solidifies my love for this run and episode even more. Kirk was excited, Missy was excited, John was excited, everyone was excited. Especially since Missy was such a nervous wreck throughout the show. This gets my vote for best temple run and episode ever. Missy did an amazing job and I will NEVER stop loving it. You've gotta be crazy to not like this episode. :mrteal:

Annie Taylor gets a perfect 10 from me also.  :mrblue:  This episode was a classic and my all time favorite episode in the whole series. This is the episode you go back watching again and again because it never gets old. The legend was good and had an exciting Steps of Knowledge round. The temple games were memorable for the Blue Barracudas come back in the last temple game. And then we get an epic tiebreaker moment which turns into 1 of 2 boob grabs. The temple win was also a classic and very memorable too. Missy might've not moved as fast as Gator and Zac and she may have tried for a direct path, but she also did many things right. After all, she was the first contestant to reach a center of the temple artifact and bring it out. The ending was awesome also with Missy in tears, John cheering loudly, and Kirk unable to contain himself. And we get round two for the boob grab!  :mrblue: This episode was just amazing and fill with high emotions and close competition.  Missy truly made this episode a memorable experience. Which is why this my most favorite episode on the show and temple win.  :mrblue:  :mrblue:  :mrblue:  :mrblue:

Sending another 10!  :mrblue: This has to be one of the best episodes ever. John & Missy did a huge comeback to go to a tiebreaker. And then, it happened. The infamous "tiebreaker touch" scene. John touches Missy's Boob   :lol:. Missy then had one of the best runs in the history of the show. She may not've been fast or she even tried a direct path. But she really tore through the Temple and got a "Center of the Room" victory solo! Everyone was going crazy when she got the Pillow, and even more crazy after she won. Best episode of Season 2.  :mrblue: :mrblue: :mrblue: :mrblue: :mrblue: :mrblue:

Anne Bonny... the episodes that features the cheater and moron named Ron in my avatar. I pretty much know this episode like the back of my hand and know every little detail about it. Ron totally ruined this episode by cheating in the moat and later making a stupid blunder in the temple. During the moat, the players were forced to cross the moat by swimming across the innertubes. Ron never did this and swam along the SIDE of the tubes. As a result, the Red Jaguars got a very lucky break and were allowed to progress on. Aside from this fail, the rest of the episode was pretty good. The legend was interesting for telling a story about a female Pirate. The temple games were pretty good also for Fred's interview (She admits that she is weird. :p) and I thought the last temple game was interesting. The temple run was decent up until Ron decided to take the entire central shaft out of the temple. They would've won if Ron simply stayed at the top of the temple. Or if Fred went into the temple first. I guess that was payback for cheating in the moat? Despite the blatant cheat by Ron, this episode wasn't too bad. Although they really should've won. I give this one a 6.

Nzinga gets a lowly 2 for me. Why? I personally can't stand this episode at all and it was disappointing experience all around. Every round of this epiode felt like I was forcing myself to watch it. Renee and Benjamin really weren't that great of a team at all. The Purple Parrot girl didn't even look like she wanted to be on the show at all and the temple games were so boring. The temple run was just another crappy performance by the Red Jaguars and we already have plenty of those. Renee had a double fail where she should've found either the obvious half-pendant or try plowing through the stone wall. She does neither and as a result, we end up with a fast triple capture. Other than that, this episode is near the bottom of episodes that I would rewatch. The only thing I thought was sort of interesting was the arifact located in the Lightning Ball Room and the temple run being ended by a temple spirit. Other than that, this episode was lame and I could care less about it.

Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on May 06, 2013, 10:38:59 PM
Yeah, I didn't like Nzinga either, which is why I'm only giving it a 4. I still think the wall wouldn't have broken down and they would have been forced up into the Shrine. Also, did the Purple Parrot girl really lack that much enthusiasm? She seemed excited to me, from what I remember. The Purple Parrot girl from "Attila the Hun" was someone who bored throughout the whole episode.

Either way, I was rooting for the Parrots in the temple games. :?

Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes! Day 93: The Plumed Headdress of Cosa Rara
Post by: The Red Jaguars on May 07, 2013, 11:03:14 PM
Plumed Headdress is another episode I can't stand at all. Just like "Queen Nzinga", all of the rounds of that episode were boring and uneventful. The legend is absurdly weird in this episode. The legend  talks about the King of Bavaria literally having a conversation with a horse at the dinner table.  :shock:  :shock:  :shock:  And he also made the horse soup and everything. That is all the legend talks about.  :roll:  :roll:  :roll: I think the only competition this episode has for most ridiculous legend is the "Snow Cone" one. :roll: The temple games were pretty boring, but I will admit that I sort of like the giant step temple game where the teams had to light the candelabra. The temple run sucked though and I refuse to watch it. It was just your typical Season 2 episode where the second runner was slow and ruins everything. Justin was good, but Jessie was not a good player at all and she was slow and only entered one additional room after her partner was taken out. They would've had a better chance at winning if they started high and Jessie went in first. Overall, this was just a filler episode that is brought down by the ridiculous legend and boring temple run. I give it a lowly 2.  :roll:

I gave Cosa Rara a 4. One of the most boring, filler episodes ever. But there are more episodes that I hate more than Cosa Rara, so that's why my score is more generous. Still a crappy episode though.

Granted, it did center around King Ludwig II, who was one of the most apeshit-insane guys who ever lived. :P

And yes, the run was very forgettable.  I also gave it a 3...nothing very special about "Cosa Rara" at all.

Next is The Trojan Horseshoe
Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes! Day 94: The Trojan Horseshoe
Post by: The Red Jaguars on May 08, 2013, 11:01:02 PM
The Trojan Horseshoe was a memorable episode for how awful the answers at the Steps of Knowledge were. Seriously, no other Steps of Knowledge round can trump the one in this episode. At least every team at the Steps got one wrong answer. Kirk and Olmec were pretty much getting impatient themselves with all of the wrong answers at the Steps. At the same time though, the Steps were also pretty laughable for the Silver Snake boy's answer and reactions. One of the answers to the question was "Achilles tendon" and the Silver Snake boy pointed to his heel while answering the question.  :lol: The legend itself was historically inaccurate and I don't know how a wooden horse can leave a Horseshoe.  :roll: The rest of the episode was good though and if it wasn't for the Steps of Knowledge, then it would've got a higher score. The win was just plain average, but the Green Monkeys still did a good job. But nothing sticks out about Lucretia and Shawn's performance at all. I actually don't mind this win at all and it ranks in the middle of the pack for my favorite wins. This was a good episode that is brought down by the Steps of Knowledge and historically inaccurate legend. At the same time though, the Steps in this episode is a classic and always fun to go back and rewatch. I will give "The Trojan Horseshoe" a 7. :mrgreen:

Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on May 08, 2013, 11:06:55 PM
I gave The Trojan Horseshoe of 7. It was a good episode, aside from that awful Steps of Knowledge round. And don't get me started on the Silver Snakes and their ridiculous answers. Now THAT is someone who deserves a low ranking for that round. The temple run was good, but nothing really stood out. And I don't see how it is at all compared to John Sutter. Either way, Shawn and Lucretia did a decent job and they did earn their win.

Post by: The Red Jaguars on May 09, 2013, 10:27:32 PM
Silver Saddle Horn is an episode that I forget that even exists sometimes. Nevertheless, I do remember certain pieces of this episode. This episode has the longest RECORDED moat in the whole series. While the Stone Head/Cracked Crown episodes probably featured the infamous 45 minute long moat, this one holds the record the longest taped moat. I also remember the temple games for the belly sliding game and for the British Green Monkey boy named Lee. The temple run was just average at best, but Vicky had some bad luck when she chose to go up into the Heart Room. She was definitely a fast runner and if she stayed at the bottom the whole time, they would've won. Although this run is the reason why I hate the Treasure Room. I mean why didn't the treasure chest open in this situation. It was a waste of space. Overall, this episode is pretty forgettable and the temple run has a disappointing outcome. I will give it a 5.

Post by: The Red Jaguars on May 11, 2013, 12:33:36 AM
Ivory Elephant was a good episode, but it was forgettable though at the same time. It was the last episode that people waited for to air on Nick GaS I remember. :P The rest of the episode had good rounds if you actually watched it. The legend was very interesting for Scheherezade telling a story every night to prevent her husband from killing her. The temple games were dominated by Monica and Brad. The temple run featured a tricky path, but Brad and Monica made their own mistakes that prevented them from reaching the Ivory Elephant. Monica took too long in the Ledges and she assembled the Stone Column in a horrible fashion. Brad himself didn't help their cause either when he unnecessarily entered the Ledges and took the slow ass Mine Shaft elevator. If they didn't make any of these mistakes, they would've reached the Ivory Elephant. But both players still made it far despite the path they chose and mistakes they made. Overall, this is a good episode that is pretty forgettable. I will give it a 6.

Did you count my vote in the final tally, GM1? ;)

Another 1 rating from me. There are literally no redeeming qualities about "Alhambra" at all.  The Moat is boring.  The Steps of Knowledge were boring.  The Temple Games, while watchable, are nothing special, and the way the Red Jaguars advanced to the Temple was a load of crap.  And we all know about the abysmal Temple Run.
Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes! Day 97: The Keys to the Alhambra
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on May 11, 2013, 10:05:14 PM
I also give Alhambra a 1. This is easily the worst episode ever. The moat was too short, the Steps of Knowledge had some pretty dumb responses, the temple games were way too one sided, and the temple run sucked. The Red Jaguars only got to the temple because the Silver Snakes choked at the tiebreaker, only to have Lisa blow it for the team. Yet another example of why slow players shouldn't go in second. Temple runs like this are precisely why I hate the Red Jaguars. Their temple runs and episodes are always my least favorite. -_-

Post by: The Red Jaguars on May 12, 2013, 12:38:54 AM
Alhambra was a god awful and boring episode for sure. Every round felt like a chore watching and it was just sad how the Red Jaguars made it to the temple. Steve and Lisa winning the tiebreaker wouldn't have been so bad if they actually answered the question themselves. If that was the case, then I wouldn't give them a hard time about it. But that is S1's rules for you. :roll: Everything else about this episode was bad though from the short moat to the temple run. And speaking of the temple run... how do you NOT make progress with 2:30 to yourself on the clock? Sure the Tomb of the Ancient Kings "dead end" confused Lisa. But that doesn't mean she couldn't try an alternate route. Steve was a great frontrunner, but Lisa was probably the worst girl on the whole show after Tia. Unfortunately, this is one of the few episodes I remember from my original Nick days. I was originally going to give this episode a 2 for nostalgia reasons. But Alhambra will get a lowly 1 instead and keep "Snow Cone" company with an even 1 score.  This episode is such a waste of space. Don't even bother rewatching it after your first view. :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:

Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes! Day 98: The Lucky Medallion of Atocha
Post by: The Red Jaguars on May 12, 2013, 10:23:25 PM
Going from one of the worst episodes to one of the best episodes, I give Atocha a 10. This is my favorite Orange Iguana episode on the show that I thought was a very memorable experience. There was close competition throughout the episode from the Steps of Knowledge to the temple games. The temple games were very fun to watch due to Ty and Jennifer's enthusiasm. The temple games came down to a tiebreaker when Ty and Jennifer lost their team after some close competition in the temple games. The temple run was also a very memorable and fun solo win. Ty dropping his Pendant at the beginning of the run was very costly for the team, but he got his act together quickly and put his butt into gear to score a very outstanding solo win. While dropping the Pendant at the beginning of the run was a costly mistake, I don't give Ty a hard time about it though and it was probably an honest mistake. Either way, Ty was a smart and very fast guy and not taking the direct path helped his team win. Overall, this was a very memorable and fun episode to watch. And Jennifer and Ty owned it. It ranks #7 in my all time favorite episodes.  :mrorange:  :mrorange:  :mrorange:

Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on May 13, 2013, 11:02:31 PM
Just one more episode until Day 100. :mrorange:

And I gave Melted Head a 6. It was a decent episode, and I especially liked Jennifer's face plant in the third temple game. :lol: The temple run sucked, all thanks to Nicholas. Not only will taking the whole central shaft ruin your shot at winning, but three minutes is not enough time to dilly daddle through the temple. I don't blame Jennifer one bit for shouting at him, though sounded more overexcited than she did angry. Also, I think Jennifer gets a little too much criticism here. She's not the terrible person she's made out to be. Unlike Dana and Lauren, she actually DID pull her weight and almost assembled the monkey in time. You can't expect a contestant to go all the way to the bottom corner of the temple, grab artifact and win in 40 seconds. In my opinion, I thought she did just fine in the temple. Other than that, this episode was just average.
Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes! Day 99: The Melted Head of Madame Tussaud
Post by: The Red Jaguars on May 13, 2013, 11:05:38 PM
Madame Tussaud is an episode that gets sort of a bad reputation due to Jennifer's screaming. The episode itself was average, but it was pretty memorable too. The artifact gets the reward for the creepiest artifact on the show.  :shock: I know it's suppose to be a bust of Napoleon, but they went a little over-the-top with the details. The temple games featured another Orange-Purple matchup with Orange winning. It is also memorable for Jennifer taking a boulder to the face too.  :lol: The temple run was average, but it was hard to watch Nicholas in the temple. He was very hesitant when it came to completing every objective. He is the reason why the team lost, not Jennifer. Jennifer actually did decent in her short time in the temple. She actually cut straight to the King's Storeroom and almost assembled the Silver Monkey too. That is pretty good for her short time in the temple. It's not like Dana and Lauren who did crap in their short tenure in the temple. Nick is the reason why the Orange Iguana lost. I bet the team would've done much better if Jennifer went in first. Overall, it was an average episode with some memorable highlights. It's definitely not the worst episode that people make it out to be. I will give it a 6.

Empress Theodora gets a 7 from me. It was a pretty memorable and decent episode IMO. The moat was infamous for being part of the "45 minute long" moat day. Unlike the other episodes that day, this one didn't seem too long. It is also memorable for a certain Silver Snake team that later appears in the "Polynesian Girl" episode.  :mrsilver: The temple games were also pretty close and a nailbiter too. This is the closest an episode has come in ending in a 2-Pendant tiebreaker. Now that would've been neat to see. The temple run featured a very close encounter with the artifact similar to"Blue Pearl". It wasn't as exciting as Blue Pearl though, but was still came down to the wire. Josh and Ashley came very close to the Imperial Purple Robe, but they moved a little slow. If they moved at a faster pace, then they would've had a close win with it too. It didn't help that Josh didn't finishing riding the Well bucket down to allow him to be in grabbing distance of the Robe. The temple run is still decent and I will take it over half of the episodes on the show. Overall, it was a decent Green Monkeys episode where most of the rounds were decent.

6. This episode is really exciting. This was probably the closest episode to a two pendant tiebreaker. The run was a nailbiter with the Green Monkeys going for a last second grab. Just one question, could they have plowed through the wall on the way out?

Post by: The Red Jaguars on May 15, 2013, 01:22:50 PM
I always assumed the wall was reinforced one way but not the other way. So when Ashley pushes on the wall from the Dark Forest side, the wall is \reinforced and she isn't able to push it down. However, from the Dark Forest side, it would be easily pushed down. I wish there were other runs that showed the wall not being able to break down either. Perhaps it worked this way in Atocha if Ty and Jennifer stood on the bottom floor?

Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes! Day 101: The Oracle Bowl of Delphi
Post by: The Red Jaguars on May 15, 2013, 11:01:32 PM
I gave Oracle Bowl a 5 too because it was a memorable episode where the temple run was the only bad part of it. Unfortunately, the temple run was a huge disaster and brings the episode down a lot. Otherwise, the rest of the episode was fine. The Purple Parrots were waiting a long time for a shot at the temple, and they got it in this episode after half of S1 already went by. Jackie and Shane did great before the temple run too - first in the moat, first in the Steps, won their individual games and tied their team game. So it's not like other episodes with bad temple runs where the temple team barely advanced. The temple run though was pretty bad and that was mostly Shane's fault for being very slow and clueless. Shane was a very fast contestant like Robbie and Steve were and got taken out while making it through a good portion of the temple. Unfortunately, Jackie ruined everything. She was so slow and so clueless too. Just look how long it takes her to get out of the Cave of Sighs. :roll: Then she slowly takes her sweet time on the bottom floor of the temple and completely oblivious to the little amount of time she does not have. When she makes it to the Pirate's Cove, she can't even make it past it with almost 45 seconds left. To be fair though, not even Kirk knew what to do in that room until a good 15 seconds has past. This team would've won in the temple if Jackie wasn't slow and clueless. Luckily, the "Cobra Staff" episode did better justice for the Purple Parrots in S1 than this suckfest. But overall it was just average.

Polynesian Girl gets a 9 from me. This was one of my top 20 favorite episodes on the show and one of the best episodes to end in a temple loss. The whole episode was very exciting and I know about every little detail about it. The Purple Parrots and Silver Snakes were very competitive and the competition was close. The legend was interesting and the Priceless Portrait was very neat looking. Although the location was very random and you knew the producers stuck it in the Laser Light Room because no artifact was there before. I remember all four player interviews too - Jim wanted to be an electrician, Kristen wanted to be a painter, Chris was a baseball player, and Janet got struck my lightning. :o The temple games were fun also and I always thought the hand painting game was very neat and creative. The temple loss was very exciting, but the Silver Snakes should've won. Jim was very speedy in the temple, but he only lasted three rooms though. Kristen was slower and stalled a few times early on in the run. I am not sure why she retreated back to the Pit in order to go into the King's Storeroom? Although her camera poses were a little silly.  :P When she got on the bottom floor though, she finally got it together and grabbed the Priceless Portrait with 14 seconds left. They didn't win at the end due to Kristen's hesitations. If the player order was reversed, they would've won and probably would've been the best Silver Snake win. Overall, it was a very exciting episode and a great way to close out S2. It would've been better if they won, but this episode is a class and very memorable IMO.

9. This was a great way to wrap up Season 2. The Purple Parrots were the Blue Barracudas in Emiliano Zapata (same team that got replaced). Scott & Kristen proved to be very strong in the Temple and Kristen really moved fast on the bottom floor.

Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes Day 103: Wild Bill Hickok & the Dead Man's Hand
Post by: The Red Jaguars on May 18, 2013, 12:39:12 AM
I think I will show Dead Man's Hand some leniency and give it a 6. It was a pretty boring and bizarre episode, but you can't really hold it against Sarah and Josh and the producers since it was one of the first episodes ever taped. And despite it being quirky, I still remember bits and pieces of it. The Steps of Knowledge is memorable for the "Colonel Sanders!" answer where the audience even laughs at the Silver Snake boy. The temple games is also memorable for the "You don't want to aim there, you might want to aim a little higher" quote from Kirk when one of the girls threw the velcro ball at her partner's private area.  :lol: The temple run had a disappointing outcome, but you can't blame Sarah and Josh at all. That layout was pretty screwed up and they were forced to run all over the place. I think it was a bunch of crap that none of the upper shaft doors didn't open. Not even the Tomb of the Ancient Kings opened from the Swamp and they were supposedly forced up into the Room of the Golden Idols. If this was any other filming day of S1, I bet both players would've performed much better. Too bad that they had to be guinea pigs for one of the first temple runs ever. But I don't think they were a bad team at all. Overall, it was a pretty quirky episode due to being one of the first episodes ever taped. Which is why I was more generous towards the score for it.

6. This episode is famous for the Colonel Sanders answer  :lol:. Also, during the third game, Kirk said "You don't wanna shoot there, you wanna shoot a little higher" after one of the girls threw the ball at her partner's "area"   :lol:. Josh and Sara got really ripped off in the run. I think they should've had a second chance.

Jedediah Smith was such a boring and forgettable episode. I can't remember many details about it at all. The artifact was very weird choice to be used to begin with. Oh well, Season Three had plenty of weird artifacts. The temple games were mediocre and boring. I do remember the tiebreaker though and the Orange Iguanas won that one fairly. And I honestly can't stand the temple run. While Irish had bad luck with the one room away guard, she was so slow from the start that they had no chance at winning with her speed. Even Brittany from "Pytheas" moved faster than she did. She was just slow and kind of clueless too. Brian wasn't much better either because he pretty much taking his time following up on her path. And for some reason, he always annoyed at the end when he was waving in front of the camera. :roll: Overall, this was a pretty boring and mediocre episode that I usually skip because there is nothing great about it. It wasn't a terrible episode, just not worth sitting through. I will give it a 3.

I personally don't think the episode is as boring as you guys are making it out to be.  Granted, Irish was slow as molasses in the Temple Run, but Brian actually wasn't that bad.

Still, this episode was among the worst of Season 3.  I'm giving it a 4.

Sorry, but this episode is extremely boring. There is literally nothing memorable about this episode. Who's Irish? Who's Brian? Seriously, I honestly forget this team even made it to the temple. All I can remember is the tiebreaker between the Orange Iguanas and the Green Monkeys. That's it. Neither player did great, and they were equally responsible for why this team lost. Just a typical, boring Orange Iguanas episode. Then again, the Orange Iguanas had a lot of forgettable episodes, but this one takes the cake.

I was getting worried that you were talking about the Freydis episode. But now I see you wanted to get Bent Shaving Pan and that forgettable episode over with

And for Freydis, I'll give it a 9. This was an exciting episode and the Temple Run was no exception. Tarrah may not have been Gator or Zac fast, but she was amazing. The best part of this episode was her dive in the pit and the hit on the Rock Slab, YOLO  :lol: ! To wrap it up, it was one of the best finishes ever... and a close one too. This was my favorite Purple Parrot episode.  :mrpurple:  :parrots2:

Speaking of Freydis, I'm giving it a 9. It's one of the best episodes of Season 2 to me. The Purple Parrots were a great team all day, but in the end, it was Tarrah that mattered. And who could forget about the jump across the Pit and the last second win? Great episode. :mrpurple: :mrpink:

I am going to go ahead and give Freydis a 10. This was both a very strong and memorable episode. From start to finish, it was a very memorable episode to watch. The legend was very good and interesting, as was the artifact. Tarrah was a very enjoyable contestant to watch too, and you can't help but root for her during the temple games and temple run. After all, she pretty much owned her temple game for such a small size. The temple run is a classic and one of the most exciting runs on the whole show. Tarrah was a slow contestant in the temple, but she was also very strong and tough. She made it all the way to the Milk Bucket with over 30 seconds on the clock. She then proceeds with the artifact by trying to jump across the Pit of Despair before taking a face dive into the stone slab. She smacks her face against the stone slab. Instead of giving up though, Tarrah drags the bulky artifact through the Ledges before scoring the very memorable one second win. She was very strong throughout and was a trooper for scoring that win after taking such a nasty hit. The ending was memorable with Tarrah about to fall apart, Chris hugging her, and Kirk's enthusiasm. This is the Purple Parrots best episode on the show. It was a very exciting and memorable experience that it deserves a perfect 10!  :mrpurple:  :mrpurple:  :mrpurple:  :mrpurple:  :mrpurple:

War Fan was a pretty quirky and decent Silver Snake episode. Even though Jeremy and Elise are guilty of scraping by the whole episode, I still thought it was a fun and decent episode. The legend was pretty memorable as was the artifact also. The temple games were close competition and with the Silver Snakes making a comeback in the team game. The temple run is very memorable for the production error that shafted the Silver Snakes. Jeremy was a fast contestant, but he got unlucky with the one room away guard. Elise was even more unlucky where she lost 30 seconds of her run because of the door locking up in the Tomb of the Ancient Kings. Why did this happen? Even though Kirk blames it on Jeremy, I don't think it was his fault at all. It was just a screwy mistake due to the being the first production day of S3. Had that error have not occured for Elise, she would've reached the War Fan and had a legit shot of getting it out of the temple. At least the Silver Snakes got the second prize either way. But it's not the same satisfaction as reaching the actual artifact. Overall, it was a good episode that ended with a disappointing outcome. I will give it a 7.

The Silver Snakes won their individual games, not a comeback in the team game.

Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes! Day 107: The Paintbrush of Leonardo da Vinci
Post by: The Red Jaguars on May 21, 2013, 09:07:50 PM
Leonardo Da Vinci was a pretty forgettable episode all around, but I do remember quite a few details about it. If the temple run wasn't so forgettable, this episode would have received a higher score. I do remember the rare instance where there was a 4-way tie on the second to last step in the Steps of Knowledge. I also remember the rare Orange-Blue matchup used in this episode. In addition, I thought the paint bucket temple game where the contestants had to climb up the slippery slope to pull the paint buckets down was both memorable and pretty neat. But there is literally nothing noteworthy about the temple run. I don't think Katie and Roberto were a bad team, but they had some pretty bad luck in the temple. The Swamp deadend was unfair to the team and did not grant them into the lame Treasure Room. They were then forced up to the entire central shaft before getting removed at the top. If the team didn't try the direct path, they might've done better in the temple. But then again, you can't really expect a Season 1 team to know better. Overall, the earlier rounds of the temple were memorable to an extent, but the ever forgettable temple run brings this one down. Oh yeah, this had to be one of the lamest artifacts used on the show. -_____- A plain old Paintbrush? That's all you could come up with for Da Vinci? You could use that for any artist. :roll: I will give this episode a 5.

I second everything TRJ said, which is also why I gave it a 5. This episode is only good for the rare 4-way tie on the second to last step, the rare Blue/Orange matchup, and the paint temple game. Other than that, the temple run was boring was basically a repeated "The Stone Marker of Leif Erickson" layout. Katie and Roberto were robbed, direct path or not.

Blackbeard also gets a lowly 2 from me. I actually hate this episode more than "Alhambra". But what saves it from getting a 1 is that the earlier rounds were... okay. Like TSM mentioned, at least the temple games were competitive and the Red Jaguars did win two pendants, so they weren't really undeserving or anything. Everything about this episode was bad though from the bad edits to the horrible temple run. Seriously, there were a lot of bad shots in this episode - butt picking in the moat, no figure used for the legend narrative, sloppy camerawork in the temple run, and no credits at the end! And speaking of the temple run, it was nothing but pure crap. Five rooms in three minutes? I doubt now that the Wheel Room was even a deadend. Even if it was, that doesn't excuse the piss poor performance. Sean and Katherine from "Belshazzar" made more progress than Sabrina and they had an even more time consuming dead end. At the end, I think she just gave up and went back to the temple gates. I wonder why there is no credits for this episode? I am with PPF on this on, I will stay away from this crap when I rewatch episodes.  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:

I gave Metal Beard an 8, one of the best episode of Season 3. And it's the ONLY time the Purple Parrots win a tiebreaker. :mrpurple: And the temple run was very exciting. TJ and Randy were fast, smart, and knew what to do in every room. Randy did take her sweet time exiting the temple, but that shoudln't be counted against her in any way. Overall, this was a great, well deserved win and one of the most underrated wins in the show's history. :mrpink:

Post by: The Red Jaguars on May 23, 2013, 10:31:03 PM
I thought Egyptian Queen was a very fun and memorable episode, so I am going to give it a 9. The artifact was interesting and the legend was good, the Steps were good, and the temple games were memorable and fun. The Purple Parrots made a comeback in the final temple and turn around and won their first and only tiebreaker. The temple run was very exciting and both Purple Parrot players were solid. TJ started out fast, and got taken out of the Dark Forest. Randy followed up on his path very well and even grabbed the Metal Beard with plenty of time to spare. Unfortunately, she took a bad path out of the temple which caused her to enter every room. Everyone was on the edge of their seat whether Randy would bring it out, and the ending was a nailbiter. The Purple Parrots won in the end with 0:05 seconds on the clock in a solid fashion. Even though this episode is almost exactly like "Bandit Queen", I gave this one a higher score because it was more memorable. The Purple Parrots had a lot of bad luck on the show, including having very few temple appearances and losing almost every tiebreaker. But this Purple Parrot team broke tradition and won a tiebreaker and turned around to win the temple run. Very exciting episode and my second favorite after "Freydis".  :mrpurple:  :mrpurple:  :mrpurple:  :mrpurple:  :mrpurple:  :mrpurple:

"Metal Beard" is one of those episodes you just can't help but love. It's very entertaining to watch, the Temple Games were great, and the Temple Run was one of the most memorable on the show. It gets a solid 9 from me, only held back from a perfect score because of Randy's...unusual exit strategy.

Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes! Day 110: The Codebook of Mata Hari
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on May 24, 2013, 11:22:41 PM
I only gave Mata Hari a 3. the legend was interesting, but the temple games were the worst. Kirk took the "furthest along" rule WAY too literally and the Silver Snakes won 2/3 games as a result of that. Though with the Blue Barracuda girl's pathetic, downright embarrassing performance in the third temple game, I doubt the Blue Barracudas would've done a better job. The temple run wasn't much better. At least Gareth was kind of fast, but couldn't maneuver through tight spaces well due to his chubbiness. Rinette was just a lost cause. She took longer to get to the Holes of Python than Gareth did, and she moved like a slug. Definitely one of the weakest episodes ever.
Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes! Day 110: The Codebook of Mata Hari
Post by: GreenMonkeys#1 on May 24, 2013, 11:43:06 PM
3 from here as well. The Temple Games were unfair because Kirk took the furthest along rule too far. Although I would rather still have the Silver Snakes in the Temple due to the female blue Barracuda in the third game  :roll:. The run was just your typical Season 1 loss, but Rinette was so slow  :roll:.
Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes! Day 110: The Codebook of Mata Hari
Post by: The Red Jaguars on May 25, 2013, 12:40:14 AM
Yeah, Mata Hari is only going to get a 3 from me also. Everything about this episode was mediocre and it was pretty forgettable too. The temple games had to be one of the worst officiated temple game round on the whole show. As mentioned, Kirk took the "furthest along" rule a little too seriously. For example, in Rinette's temple game where they had to climb the wall and grab the books, there was no way that she was furthest along. They should've called this temple game with a tie at least. The third temple game was even worse due to the Blue Barracuda girl. In the dragon tunnel temple game, she literally could not climb up the first hill. Her partner had to go all the way to the other side just to help her out. :roll: In the end, I guess it was a good thing the Silver Snakes won. As for the temple run, it was just your typical season one loss where the team lost due to the one room away guard. I actually thought Garrett did decent in the temple and he made it far with one room away from the artifact. The team had no chance to win though due to the one room away guard, but that didn't matter because Rinette was a lost cause anyways. She moved so slow and took her sweet time to move through the Holes of Python. Even if she didn't last long in the temple, it was enough time to show us that she was a lost cause. The only thing I liked about this episode is the interesting legend. Other than that, not worth my time and probably not worth anyone else's either after their first view.

Post by: The Red Jaguars on May 26, 2013, 12:31:41 AM
Blackfeet Chief was a pretty forgettable episode and didn't have many exciting moments. However, it was still a strong Purple Parrot episode with almost their first win too. I remember the moat for the Purple Parrots barely making it in the last spot, then turn around and dominate the Steps. As GM1 mentioned, this episode marked the only time the Purple Parrots beat the Red Jaguars also. And coincidentally, this is the only episode I really like for having the Red/Purple matchup too. The temple run should've been a win, but Leah and Brandon moved way too slow. Leah was definitely the slowest of the two and she hesitated too much in the Swamp trying t figure out which direction she wanted to use. Brandon was kind of a slow secondrunner also, but he also had one of the fastest Silver Monkey assemblies on the show too. They still grabbed the Bone Necklace though, but they would've won if the Purple Parrots moved faster and Brandon didn't have such a bad exit plan. Either way, I found it to be a pretty good Purple Parrot episode. So I will give it a 7.

Make it another 7 from me. This wasn't the best episode by any means, but the legend was fairly interesting (it dealt with a black man on Lewis & Clark's expedition being mistaken for a wizard by Indians due to his dark skin), and the Temple Games were good.  Also, Leah and Brandon were a pretty good team, as they did manage to reach the Necklace.

Grandy Nanny was an episode for the longest time that I thought was alright and never understood all the hate it got. But after watching it again recently, it disgusted me and I remember why people hate on it. It was such a boring, terrible, and poorly edited episode. The legend was boring, the Orange Iguanas were a boring team, and the temple run was crap. Jonathan and Amber were such a hyper team and the producers must've gave these kids something before the show because these two kept jumping around. And Jonathan was the worst of the two where he made stupid gestures at the camera and after his team won the temple games, he threw his helmet in the air. Why would you do that and risk hurting someone? And speaking of the temple games, how did this Orange Iguana team sweep it? The temple run was pretty piss poor and these two players made stupid mistakes. Jonathan was so slow and got lost in easy temple rooms. Amber was not much better and she even backtracked to the Observatory. Even though they sort of made it far, it was a bad effort and these two should feel bad for it. Besides the crappy Orange Iguanas performance, the rest of the episode had terrible editing and camerawork. Also, Kirk was way off in the temple games too. Due to these factors above, people thought that Grandy Nanny was the first episode of S2. But it turned out to be "Butch Cassidy", which is a much better candidate than this episode. So listen to other people when they say this episode was crap, because it sure was! I give it a lowly 2.

Grandy Nanny gets a lowly 2. This was a bad episode. They had horrible editing and cameras and Kirk kept acting like it was Season 1 when it was Season 2. Wait... the Orange Iguanas swept the games :shock: . Jonathan's throwing of his helmet was uninteresting :roll: . The Temple Run was confusing and featured an unnecessary backtrack to the Observatory. Kirk yelling that the Cannonball was right below Amber didn't help, because Amber was looking down thinking she past it :roll: . But something funny happened when Olmec (Dee) said Silval instead of Silver and then correcting himself. :lol:

I gave Silver Cannonball a 3, boring episode with bad editing and hyperactive players. Plus, this was one of the episodes that was played on Nick Gas A LOT during the 20 episode cycle in late 2006. And you can bet it was a pretty poor episode choice to play over and over again. :roll:

Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes! Day 113: The Jeweled Scabbard of Sforza
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on May 27, 2013, 09:55:00 PM
I gave Sforza an 8. It was a very exciting episode, from Lacey's enthusiasm, to the scoreless tie in the third game, to the Green Monkey's long winded response of a tiebreaker answer, to the temple run. The layout was pretty easy, and it was pretty much rigged so every episode on the final filming day could win. But, it was still a great run and Lacey and Asher deserved it.

I like Jeweled Scabbard. The Temple Games were interesting, the third one was scoreless :lol:. Kirk almost blew the tiebreaker :lol:. It was a good Temple Run but one of the easiest layouts ever. Still, it was fun, and I'll give this episode an 8. :mrgreen:

I'll give "Sforza" a 7. Don't get me wrong, it was a great episode, and the team deserved their win. But the Temple layout was very...easy.
Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes! Day 113: The Jeweled Scabbard of Sforza
Post by: The Red Jaguars on May 27, 2013, 10:12:26 PM
Sforza was a solid Green Monkey episode and a very exciting one at that. Like all the episodes from that day, the producers went out of their way to make this one memorable and special. The artifact looked very detail and awesome, as was the legend too. Lacey and Asher also showed some great enthusiasm throughout this episode too. Since this was the last production day of the show, the kids seemed to get away with certain answers at the Steps and then later at the tiebreaker. If this was a S2 or S3, then these players probably wouldn't have advanced on with these answers. This episode came down to the very last tiebreaker on the show. It was also the Barracudas only tiebreaker loss on the whole show too. The temple win was pretty simple, but Lacey and Asher were a good team. And as easy as their layout was, they still had to travel up the central shaft. Which was not an easy feature in S3 at all. They still scored a solid victory and they definitely earned it. It was definitely a fun and classical episode throughout the whole day. I will give it an 8 also.

Post by: The Red Jaguars on May 29, 2013, 12:21:41 AM
Stolen Arm was a very boring and forgettable episode. It was one of those episodes that you even forget exists half the time. I do remember a couple of details about this episode. The Stolen Arm was the only time an artifact was ever located in the Bamboo Forest. I also remember Olmec Fogging up the Bamboo Forest and refer to it as the "Bamboo Swamp". I also remember the temple game where the players had to collect pieces of the Shiva statue's arms. The temple run was very boring and Christina and Evan were so slow. Even Kirk felt this way about them and even told them to pick up the pace. Three minutes is not enough time to screw around in the temple. Evan's Silver Monkey assembly was pretty laughable also. If Larry didn't screw up his Silver Monkey so bad, this would probably be the worst screwjob on the show. Overall, the whole episode felt very boring and mediocre. You will watch this episode once and never touch it again because it's not even noteworthy. I will give it a 4.

Post by: GreenMonkeys#1 on May 29, 2013, 09:28:14 PM
Genghis Khan is one of those better episodes in the first season. The Temple Games were interesting, and I believe this is the one where the head of one soldier falls off :lol:. the run was easy but it was a great win, and the Red Jaguars just couldn't stay in the frame :lol: :mrred:. I'll give it a 7.

Post by: NekoSuave on May 29, 2013, 10:21:41 PM
I just watched this episode again not too long ago. The episode itself was average, but it's probably one of the better ones of Season 1. I remember someone in the Temple Games taking back a soldier's head. It was amusing to see that. The Temple Run was okay; the layout was easy, but it was a good win. Not as good as the John Sutter episode from the same season, but it was interesting to watch. I'll go ahead and give this a 7.
Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes! Day 115: The Helmet of Genghis Khan
Post by: The Red Jaguars on May 29, 2013, 10:34:45 PM
I am going to give Genghis Khan an 8. Almost all of the Red Jaguar episodes from Season One were either really bad (Alhambra and Blackbeard), mediocre, or just plain average and forgettable. This episode was a nice change of pace and Becca and Taylor dominated most of the episode. And there were some memorable parts of the episode too as mentioned in the previous two posts. Becca's temple game is memorable for ending in a scoreless tie where the girls had to climb up the slide and grab the dolls from the top. The only thing that was grabbed was the head of one of the dolls.  :lol: The temple win was pretty simple, but at least it was earned and wasn't as lame as another Red Jaguar victory from S1. It was one of the few episodes where the direct path worked for the team, but they still did a good job and a team effort is a good accomplishment no matter what season of the show. The ending is also memorable for the two Red Jaguars not staying in frame of the camera either. It was hilarious seeing Kirk trying to pull both into camera frame. I also find this episode to be memorable for nostalgic reasons. So while the win wasn't the best on the show or S1, it was a fresh breath of air of all the other crap Red Jaguar episodes from this season. It was a fun experience.  :mrred:

Yeah, it is definitely worth the wait for Lawrence of Arabia's Headdress if it is the last episode. And yeah, it took exactly 4 months to review every episode. I honestly didn't expect us this finish this thread all the way through, but we are almost done and GM1 did a good job updating this daily. I wish some of the episodes got more votes, but at least the more popular ones got a lot of votes. And it has been fun going back and reviewing every episode.  :mryellow:

I'm tempted to rank "Genghis Khan" lower than most wins, but I can't fault the players too much because they were pretty good by S1 standards.  Still, there's not much about this episode that sticks out, so I'll give it a 7.

There really is nothing much about Dried Ear of Corn. There were some funny moment like the Temple Game basket switcheroo, Fast Eddie's slip in the Pit, and Tess in the Dark Forest. I'll give it a 5.
Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes! Day 116: The Dried Ear of Corn of Sojourner Truth
Post by: The Red Jaguars on May 30, 2013, 09:37:20 PM
Sojourner Truth was a very forgettable and bland episode. But I don't think it was a bad episode at all, just nothing really noteworthy sticks out about it. The artifact was pretty dumb and lame though. I mean why associate a dry piece of vegetable with Sojourner Truth? The Green Monkeys were a decent team up until the temple run. The temple run was pretty boring and uneventful. I remember Eddie's faceplant into the platform while swinging back to it in the Pit of the Pendulum. Tess also messed their temple run up to when she when she stalled in both the Shrine and Dark Forest. If she got her act together, she would've easily reached the artifact. This temple layout was exactly like "Sir Gawain", except Tess and Eddie were forced to meet all three guards. But if they moved fast, then this temple run would've had a better outcome. There is really nothing to say about this episode, but it wasn't terrible by any means though. I will give it a 6 also.

Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes! Day 117: The Enormous Iron Nose Ring of Babe
Post by: The Red Jaguars on June 01, 2013, 12:31:39 AM
Enormous Iron Nose Ring was a very fun and memorable episode. While the temple run was a little overrated and not as good as people make it out to be, the rest of the episode was very enjoyable to watch from Kirk to the Silver Snakes. The legend about Paul Bunyan and Babe was memorable to me, as was the interesting artifact. The temple games were memorable for Joel and Dorothy's enthusiasm and Joel's strong performance. It was also memorable for Kirk's "Ring around the Babe" quote too. The temple run is kind of overrated though. Joel may have had a fast win, but he made some mistakes that has cost other teams in the past. He took longer than usual to complete the Shrine of the Silver Monkey and took the whole central shaft out of the temple. That would've cost him if his layout wasn't generous to him. Not only that, he would've had one of the fastest wins if he never made either mistakes. But still, Joel was a good player either way and I respect his performance moreso than other overrated contestants. He would've done well no matter what layout you gave him. Overall, this episode is one of my favorite ones from Season 2 and even if the win is a little overrated, Joel was a fun contestant to watch. I will give this one an 8.  :mrsilver:

I gave Babe the Ox an 8. It was a fun episode and I liked the enthusiasm all around, but I find Joel a bit overrated. He was a great player, don't get me wrong, but his layout was rather easy and he didn't have much work to do. But I appreciate him much more than I do other overrated contestants.

8. Joel had a really easy path that involved no guards (but... he sped past one in the Dark Forest). He can be overrated, but it was an exciting run anyway. Everything else was good too.

"Robin Hood and Marian's Ladder!"
"Bow and arrow skills!"

Alas, we come to the  :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: episode. Jeremy & Erica were a very strong pre-temple team (1st in the Moat, 1st in the steps, 2 Pendants, victory) The other team that did all that was a 100 times better. The run is the most boring win ever. Just a few buttons led to victory. Jeremy's pose was bad too :roll:. I'll give this a 6. (Mercy vote)  :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll:
Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes! Day 118: Robin Hood & Marian's Ladder
Post by: The Red Jaguars on June 02, 2013, 12:29:13 AM
Silk Ladder... the episode that features the worst win on the whole show.  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  Seriously, the win was so easy that almost any team would've won. The rest of the episode was pretty memorable and decent though. The Steps of Knowledge were memorable for the silly answers from the Blue Barracuda boy. Although in his defense, his "Bow and Arrow skills" answer probably would've been correct in later seasons. I remember the temple games also for Erika collecting 200+ pencils and Jeremy who collected 10,000 sport cards.  :shock: The "Billy the Kid" team were famous for their dominating performance before the temple run, but Jeremy and Erika won in similar fashion - first in the moat, first in the Steps, temple game sweep, and a win in the temple. Although Kelly and Tony's performance was more strong than the Silver Snakes.

But that temple win... was so easy and lame.  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll: I know teams can't pick and choose their temple layouts, but these two should've won with more than a minute left. Erika was not a problem, she actually made it through five rooms in under a minute. Jeremy was so slow though. There is no reason he should've exited the temple with 30 seconds on the clock. If this was any other temple layout not named "Shaka Zulu", he would've lost. And then his celebration at the end of the run was so lame too. You just pushed two actuators, how is that even an accomplishment?  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  So yeah, this win is very lame and almost any team from S1 would've won it. In the end though, this temple run is better than more than half of the runs of S1. And the episode as a whole was pretty good quality and memorable. And I can go back and watch it without having to force myself to sit through it. I will give it a 7.  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:

Title: Re: Rate the Legends Episodes! Day 119: The Red Sash of Tokugawa Ieyasu
Post by: The Red Jaguars on June 02, 2013, 08:35:10 PM
Tokugawa gets an 8 from me. This episode is kind of overlooked because it doesn't really stand out compared to many other episode in S3. But once you watch, it will most likely be a memorable experience for many. Brandy and Quentin were a dominating team throughout the day. The legend was a little bit silly for the "I am grounded for two weeks with no TV?!" line. It doesn't even make sense and no one would really believe that they had televisions during that time. :roll: But Legends did worst with their legends. The temple games used were pretty interesting, and the upside-down one was also pretty unique also. Unfortunately, the Blue Barracudas had to face a bottom of the central shaft run. That means their run would end in a loss. The layout was also very lengthy for whatever reason and required the team to enter 9 rooms. And the team STILL made it to the room of the artifact. Too many hesitations on both players parts cost them the victory. But they still were a good team and Brandy was one of the very few contestants who made it back to the platform. If they had any other bottom of the central shaft layout (especially the Empress Eugenie one), the Blue Barracudas would've won. Other than that, I like this episode and was worth the review last night.  :barracudas2:  :mrblue:

Also, one more episode after this one!  ;)

The second-last episode. So I'll give this an 8. The Blue Barracudas were a great team. The Legend was going alright until this line came. "I'm grounded for 2 weeks with no TV?" :roll:. One of the worst lines ever. No one is going to believe they had TV's all the way back then. The run was very exciting and odd. The Shrine/Password door was left open. Brandy still did the Monkey, and she failed to notice the Bog door (common mistake, Quentin did it too). Man, did they get a lucky break in the Jester's Court. They almost got the Sash.

We have finally made it to our last episode! And what better way to end this with my favorite episode (I made sure this would be reviewed last  :P). There is no question, I'm giving this a 10.  :mrgreen: This was the first episode Nick aired, man did they make an awesome choice. David was a beast in this episode, he just blazed across the Moat. The Steps were notable for being the longest on the show. Candice's Lump/hump answer was weird too. The Temple Games featured domination, the Red Jaguars didn't even stand a chance. The run finishes off a Green Monkey pwnage  :mrgreen:. David was for sure the best contestant in Season 1 and he showed us why. He probably had the fastest Silver Monkey assemble. He also noticed the Shrine/Tomb shortcut (which really helped him out). Once he grabbed the Headdress with 27 seconds left, he hauled ass along the bottom floor and escaped with 1 second left.

Post by: The Red Jaguars on June 03, 2013, 08:27:28 PM
Lawrence of Arabia's Headdress gets a perfect 10 from me.  :mrgreen: After "Annie Taylor", this was my second favorite episode on the whole show. You can tell the producers put in a little extra effort in editing this episode, like the different shots in the moat for example. This whole episode was very exciting from the Green Monkeys dominance to the very exciting temple run. The temple games were memorable for the temple game interview with Angel (who was a boy...  :o) and for the Green Monkeys dominance in the temple games.  I liked the unique temple games they used from the dragon tunnel game where Candace and the Red Jaguar girl put the Turban tail on their head to the final temple game where the teams had to push pieces of brick up the water slide. Was that the only time that was used as a team game?  :?: The temple win is amazing and my favorite team win on the show. It always bothers me when people say that this win was average just because it was from S1. The Green Monkeys were a great team. Sure, Candace moved a little slow and David followed up on her path too closely. But it also lead up to the big grand finale. When David grabbed the Headdress with 27 seconds left, I didn't think he could pull if off. But he hauled ass out of the temple, climbed up the Wall Climb portion of the Wheel Room, and basically just leaps out of the Cave of Sighs for the last second victory!  :mrgreen:  :mrgreen: This was the best temple exit on the show IMO and it sure came down to the wire too. Candace was unable to contain herself and Kirk was very happy at the end too.  :mrgreen: They deserved it and David is one of the best guys to appear on the whole show. Apparently, the producers picked this episode as the first one to ever air on Nickelodeon. Well, they picked a great candidate because this episode was very memorable and a classic. I am sure it drew many fans into this show, because it sure would've drew me in! I am glad that we saved this episode for last, because it truly was one of the best episodes on the whole show.  :mrgreen:  :mrgreen:  :mrgreen:  :mrgreen:   :mrgreen:  :mrgreen:

And with that note, we are done ranking all of the Legends episodes.  :mrred:  :mrblue:  :mrgreen:  :mrpurple:  :mrsilver:

Voting closed already? :|

I think I was the only one to give Tokugawa Ieyasu a 7. It was good, but not 8 material in my opinion.

Lawrence of Arabia on the other hand: 10!!! :mrgreen:  :mrgreen:  :mrgreen:  :monkeys2:  :monkeys1:  :monkeys2:  :monkeys1:  :monkeys2:  :monkeys1:

And with that said, we are done rating all the episodes!!!!!!!! :mrred: :mrblue: :mrgreen: :mrorange: :mrpurple: :mrsilver:     


Before I post the long rankings ( :P), I do want to thank some people here


Purple Parrots Fan: For changing the poll every day so everyone can have a chance to vote :mrpurple:

The Red Jaguars: For giving us probably the most specific detail of every episode that we did. I think he did better than Ed.  :mrred:

Everyone who took their time out of their busy day the last four months to vote: This thread couldn't have been done without you  ;)


Me: For having the idea that this was a better idea than a Tournament


John, Tia, Veronica, Lisa, Kim X3, Claude, Kerry, Sabrina, Karisa, Kristen (Lucky Pig), Dana, & Larry: For not bothering to even touch this forum  :P.

At long last we're done. I was glad to update the polls and I'm glad Lawrence of Arabia got a perfect 10. :mrgreen: It was a good run, and I can't wait to see the major post to see how each episode did. :P

Thanks GM1 for updating this everyday and thanks for everyone who took the time and gave feedback for each of these episodes. I know reviewing 120 episodes is a daunting task, but I enjoyed reviewing every episode and it helped bring back some memories for me. I know I went into a little too much detail in my episode rankings, but it was worth it. I wish some of these episodes got more than 3 or 4 votes, but at least all the popular ones got a good amount of votes and feedback.  :mrred:  :mrgreen:  :mrblue:  :mrorange:  :mrpurple:  :mrsilver:

I don't really have many problems with the final results either. I was very surprised that "Catherine the Great" finished with a perfect 10 because I thought everyone would give it a 9 due to the simple temple layout. But I am not complaining at all.  :mrred:

I am also glad that Lawrence of Arabia, Annie Taylor, and Pirate Captain got perfect 10's also.  :mrgreen:  :mrblue:

I wish "Imperial Wizard" was a little higher up on the list though. I know the episode was forgettable, but it was still decent and should've finished with at least of a score of a 6. Although the legend was really lame though.

I am surprised that  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  made it into the top 50 too.  :o

This is how I see each episode ranking:

7.00 - 10 - These episodes are definitely worth watching and you are missing out by not watching them. They are ones that you can go back to time to time and still watch them and they never get old.

5 - 6.99 - These episodes are either average, boring, or forgettable. But they are still worth watching and at least they still have something redeeming about them. They are episodes that you will go back to watch, but they are definitely not at the top of the list.

3.51 - 4.99 - These episodes are mediocre with lackluster rounds and bad performances. They are not total wastes though but you will most likely not to want to watch them. But they do still have something good about them...

0-3.5 - Stay away from these episodes. They are bad and hardly have anything redeeming about them. These are the episodes that you only watch for completion and never watch them again unless you use them for reference (like I am with the episode reviews) or for a game. I definitely say avoid these ones.

I sure bad a great time with this topic. Basically, you were the one who started the rating threads and everyone else joined along. But they weird thing was only three users voted in all episodes; you, me, & PPF. The others just joined the ones they knew. And about the pole expiration day, I think that should be enabled or all of us become mods. PPF really put a majority on fixing the poll, and he did a great job with it.

I don't really blame anyone for not wanting to vote in every single episode. I mean Stone Marker? Attila the Hun? Robert the Bruce? Those are episodes where it felt like "Why bother even rating?" since they were so forgettable and nothing to recall from them. The episodes that got the most votes were either the really bad ones, the ones where the temple team wins, or the ones where something significant happens in the episode. The rankings would've been slightly better if at least 5 people voted for each episode. But I guess you can't force people to vote in everything.

But yeah, it was quite a daunting task for the three of us to take on 120 episodes. I didn't mind providing my input for all of the episodes because it generated discussion and it was interesting to see how some of the obscure episodes were rated. I will admit that I will miss coming on here at night and voting for the next daily episode. :P Oh well, I guess I will wait until the next big thing comes around.  :mrred:

Don't worry, I am pretty sure I called her a guy at one point too. :P

Now that these rankings are done, I can use them as a reference for my Legends Episode rankings. So when I rank an episode like Alhambra or Bifocal Monocle, I should expect it to rank towards the bottom of the list. I will still probably make a couple of polls here and there in the Chamber of the Sacred Markers like I just did for the temple room one, so don't expect this forum to go defunct now. :P

That's the third time it's happened to me  :oops: :lol: 


And yeah, with the completion of the rating thread, the next big thing is my countdown I guess. We'll come up with something though. I mean, the show's 20th anniversary is in September so...

I wish this forum had a way to determine genders around here. We had that here once, but it was gotten rid of for no reason.

Anyways, looking at this list, look at how many Red Jaguar and Orange Iguana episodes rank towards the bottom. It definitely says a lot about them when most of their episodes rank so low, when otherwise they're the "power house" teams.

I am not surprised at all actually for the amount of Red Jaguar and Orange Iguanas at the bottom. I mean both only really have less than a dozen episodes that were actually good.

The Silver Snakes also had a bunch of episodes that were towards the bottom half too. But they also quite a few at the top.

The Green Monkeys definitely dominated the upper half with their episodes, and 3/5 of their episodes even made the top 5 list. And not to mention, they have at least 6 episodes that ranked 9.00+ higher.

The Purple Parrots also did pretty well too, with only Oracle Bowl and Lost Lion Tail ranking low. Their episodes with wins got good rankings too.

The Blue Barracudas were the only team really spread out evenly.

I got an idea

What if we did another interesting Temple Game topic? It will be a new elimination style. I'll call it. Three Strikes. Just like in baseball, 3 strikes you're out. So when you choose which one to get a strike, you would give that episode a strike, once the third strike is given, it's out. Oh yeah, no healing.

What about "Rate the Triple Capture?" We've done wins and failed escapes, but nobody has done triple captures yet. Even though that particular result isn't very positive, not all the triple captures were bad. Like Kamehameha and Great Seal would probably rank pretty high. And I can see Magellan and Secret Battle Plan ranking pretty low.

Post by: The Red Jaguars on June 06, 2013, 06:33:08 PM
I wouldn't mind that at all. There are only a dozen or so triple captures on the show anyways, so it would take less than 2 weeks. I could even make the topic if anyone wants.  ;)
