I gave this match up a 6. I really wanted to rate this higher, as I do like the colors together. I liked them better in the latter two seasons than I did in Season 1. Must be the lighting. However, the lackluster episode selection really drags it down for me. John Sutter, Henry VIII, and Missing Eye are by far the best episodes to feature this combination. The rest are average to bad. The distribution of the episodes was almost even. Blue dominated more, but Silver did get a fair chance, so it's not too bad. And just like Red vs. Blue, this combination occurred quite a bit in Season 1, twice in Season 2, and only once in Season 3. So this pair occurred less and less as the show wore on. So it lacked consistency. The colors look sort of nice together, but the less than stellar episode selection drags it down for me. Oh well, better than the next few combinations coming up. :oops:

I gave this pairing a 7. Like most of the Blue pairings, Blue and Silver look really good together. Mostly because of how well the colors contrast each other. I always felt that this pair was pretty rare too. I mean 7 times is a pretty small number compared to the other pairings. So that makes this combo a little more interesting at least. And I love some of the episodes like Map to the Lost Gold Mine, Great Seal, and Missing Eye. :mrsilver:  :mrblue: The other episodes were pretty boring, but nothing really distasteful.

You forgot to mention Geronimo as one of the "best episodes" too. And come to think of it, so did I. :o

But yeah, I was gonna give this pair a 7. Because the colors really do look nice together. I might actually go back and change it later. And this pair was somewhat rare, and I kind of wish it occurred more often, especially in Season 3. But, with John Sutter as one of the episodes, I'll take what I can get. ;)

I LOVE blue and silver together. In general. It has that retro futurist feel to it, like how EPCOT Center's Future World used to feel. It's a great combination purely color-wise.

I wanted to go higher than a 7, but in giving blue vs purple a 9, comparatively I couldn't justify it. We have a lot of combinations remaining with some great episodes, and this episode selection doesn't scream "legendary". There are definitely some good ones, just not enough to put it over the top. If this combo had produced a Lucky Pillow or Chandragupta type episode, I probably would have given it at least an 8 if not something higher.
Top 10 episodes:
1. Lucky Pillow of Annie Taylor
2. Lion Headed Bracelet of Chandragupta
3. Applewood Amulet of Emiliano Zapata
4. Milk Bucket of Freydis
5. Jewel Encrusted Egg of Catherine the Great
6. Much Heralded Helmet of Sir Gawain
7. Snakeskin Boots of Billy the Kid
8. John Sutter and the Map to the Lost Goldmine
9. Lawrence of Arabia's Headdress
10. Discarded Seal of Ivan the Terrible

Yeah, I was gonna say that too. This combination had such a futuristic look to it. It looked really neat to say the least. And yeah, some of the match ups coming up don't look the best, but do feature some legendary episodes. I'm not really looking forward to tomorrow's pair, but the one coming up the day after is pretty neat. ;)

I gave this match up a 5. I really didn't like how these colors looked together. The darker green and brighter orange just doesn't go good together. And this pair is really disappointing because for SUCH a common combination, and two of the most power house teams to boot, I expected much more from this pair. With that said, the episode selection is very unimpressive. The only episode I like at all is Discarded Seal. The rest are average to bad. That's not good when I can only pinpoint ONE episode out of a whooping 9 that I can even come close to liking. If it means anything, both teams got an equal chance at the temple. Orange dominated a little more, but Green did get some temple runs in there too. This match up also lacked consistency when it came to frequency of how often it was used. It was only used once in Season 1, three times in Season 2, (all coincidentally from the same day), but way overused in Season 3. The only positive thing I can say about this combination was the somewhat equal distribution of both teams. Otherwise, the pair was really disappointing and uninspiring. Give me tomorrow's pair please.

I gave this combo a 3. I dislike how these colors look together, and most of the episodes are lame or bad.

I gave this pairing a 4. Whenever I just look at these two colors, I fall asleep. I definitely don't like the pairing of these two colors either. It is liking mixing Halloween and Christmas together. Also, the episode selection is a drag too. Even though this was used a lot, the only episodes I like are Johnny Appleseed and Ivan the Terrible. And I hate Cracked Crown. >_< And this combo was used too much in Season 3 it felt like too. Overall, this was a boring combo with a mediocre episode selection and an eye sore of colors.

I went with a 5.

These are the classic Nick colors, and for that I love this duo.

The episode selection is kind of dull, so that dragged it way down for me.

1. Lucky Pillow of Annie Taylor
2. Lion Headed Bracelet of Chandragupta
3. Applewood Amulet of Emiliano Zapata
4. Milk Bucket of Freydis
5. Jewel Encrusted Egg of Catherine the Great
6. Much Heralded Helmet of Sir Gawain
7. Snakeskin Boots of Billy the Kid
8. John Sutter and the Map to the Lost Goldmine
9. Lawrence of Arabia's Headdress
10. Discarded Seal of Ivan the Terrible

I had to give this duo a 9.

The colors look great together.

Applewood Amulet, Lost Hornpipe, Billy The Kid, yeah, this combo has episodes!

There are no real duds here either. I would have maybe given it a 10 if I hadn't set a personal precedent and given blue vs purple a 9 as well.
Top 10 episodes:
1. Lucky Pillow of Annie Taylor
2. Lion Headed Bracelet of Chandragupta
3. Applewood Amulet of Emiliano Zapata
4. Milk Bucket of Freydis
5. Jewel Encrusted Egg of Catherine the Great

I gave this match up an 8. This is my second favorite pair behind Blue vs. Purple. I don't know if I'm alone on this, but I happen to love these colors together. They go together really nicely, even if Purple is significantly more darker than Green is. And the episode selection, for the most part, is great. Applewood Amulet, Golden Pepperoni, Billy the Kid, Pirate Captain, and Metal Beard are some of the best episodes ever. :mrgreen: :mrpurple: The only real bad episode on this list, is Xerxes. Which totally should've had Purple Parrots going to the temple there. This combination was a tad overused though, especially in Season 3. Whereas it was the only combination to not happen in Season 1, and it only happened four times in Season 2. So like most match ups, it lacked consistency. The distribution of episodes was almost equal. Just wish Purple would've had one more temple appearance, (again, with Xerxes). But both teams got an equal shot, so I can't complain too much. The great episodes and nice colors is what helps boost my score of this combination. I'm glad it was used a lot. :mrgreen: :mrpurple:
