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.

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.

Ahmed Baba gets a 5. This is a very boring episode with a boring victory. Shane has to be one of the luckiest the show has ever had by going through 9 rooms with only one guard. Plus, he acted very unenthusiastic and tried to go down the central shaft  :roll:

5.75? Are you serious? :|

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.

I'll give this a 5. I really don't have much memory on this episode but there was one good moment at the end where the middle piece flies out of the Temple.

Ahmed Baba getting a 5.75 seems legit to me. It's just a typical episode with average rounds.

Anyways, Upside Down Compass gets a 5. It was an average episode. It was rather uneventful though.

Looks like I should have voted for Ahmed Baba. I would have given it a higher score than a 5! :(

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.

I didn't mean 'bad', per say, it was just...lackluster.
