3. There is nothing redeeming here. The team ran into three straight guards in three straight rooms.

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.

I'll give Cosa Rara a 3. The Legend was really weird. It was about a chat.... with a horse   :shock: :roll:  . The run was pretty mediocre.

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.

Re: Rate the Legends Episodes! Day 94: The Trojan Horseshoe

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:

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.

Is it possible to set the poll so I can change my answer? I want to give it a 7 also because the episode is memorable and I always see myself going back to watch it.  :P

Trojan Horseshoe gets a 7. The Stupid step answers by the Silver Snakes were very unusual, especially "the part at the bottom of your foot"   :lol: . The Temple Run wasn't as exciting as John Sutter but it was alright.

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.

5. I hardly have any memory of this episode. The only thing it stood out for was the distance Temple Game.
