I've decided to change my vote to a 6. Since everyone else seems to think highly of it, I might as well.

I gave Oracle Bowl a 5. It's a typical episode really, just the temple run sucks. Oh well, at least the Purple Parrots dominated every round pre temple.

Sorry, but I give this a 3. I really hate this episode. Jackie was a huge lost cause. Shane should'be gone in 2nd. How do you waste 45 seconds in the Pirate's Cove  :roll:.

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.

"Oracle Bowl" is a really lackluster episode, with a pretty bad Temple Run.  It gets a 4 from me.
Favorite Episode: The Secret Map of the Bandit Queen
Favorite Room: The Chamber of the Sacred Markers
Favorite Team: Blue Barracudas

It's baaaaaaaack...
Legends of the Hidden Temple: Rebirth! (return date TBD)

1980s - Michael Jackson, Madonna, Bruce Springsteen, etc.
1990s - Mariah Carey, Boyz II Men, Nirvana, etc.
Present - Lady Gaga, Miley Cyrus, Justin Bieber, etc.

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.

For the millionth time, IT'S JIM NOT SCOTT. :P

Anyways, Priceless Portrait also gets a 9 from me. Great episode and great way to cap off Season 2.

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. I think she retreated to get the half-pendant and then went up to the Observatory.  :mrsilver:

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.

I also gave Dead Man's Hand a 6. Josh and Sara weren't a bad team at all, just a tad unlucky.

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.
