I like how Red and Blue look together. It looks very cool, like fire and ice or something elemental like that. While it did appear a lot on the show, it wasn't over the top like certain combinations where it sticks out like a sore thumb. And I like how the teams were evenly matched with this combination. The episode selection was pretty much a bunch of average and forgettable episodes, with a couple of good ones jam packed. I love Red Sash though and Buddha is pretty good too. The rest are forgettable but not bad (except for Jean Lafitte). I wasn't a fan of how often it was used in Season 1, but t was like non-existent after that season so it evens out. It was cool combo and I liked it, so I gave it an 8.  :mrred:  :mrblue:

Yeah, Red vs. Blue was used a whopping 5 times in Season 1, but then it only happened three times in Seasons 2 and 3. I also agree that these set of colors was elemental. It's not one of my favorite pairs, but it's still a good combination. ;) But you should be happy to know Stone Marker had that match up too. Since I know you and your love for Stone Markers. :mrred:

I gave this combo an 8. I really like these colors together and the epsiodes were decent. And the colors remind me of berries and I like berries.

Gave this an 8.

A few amazing episodes and a couple other memorable ones. Love the Christmas colors, albeit unintentional. Strange to see red actually beat green head to head.

I gave this match up a 7. I didn't really like how these colors looked together. Too dark and mushy looking to me. Though Red and Green are Christmas colors, so the colors don't look entirely too bad. ;) If there's one thing positive to say about this pair, it has an excellent selection of episodes! Lawrence of Arabia, Apanuugpak, Roland, Royal Torque, etc. are amongst some of the best episodes ever on the show. :mrred: :mrgreen: The only bad episodes on this list are Hannibal and Anne Bonny, and even that isn't too distracting. The distribution of the episodes are sort of equal, I kind of wish Green would've had just one more temple appearance from this match up. Despite the colors looking less than stellar together, the excellent episode selection helps boost my rating of this pair. ;)

I loved the Red-Green combination. This combination always reminded me of Christmas colors even though the color Green was kind of dark. An the episode selection was amazing too. Lawrence of Arabia, Roland, Apanuugpak, Queen Boadicea, and Battle Flag were all strong episodes.  :mrgreen:  :mrred: This combination was used a lot, but it was fairly distributed between Season 1 and Season 3. And the temple teams in each of those seasons went almost equal amount of times. There was a couple of bad episodes there too like Silver Saddle Horn and Anne Bonny. Overall though, the great episode selection and the good color combination makes this one of my favorite combos. I will give it an 9.  :mrred:  :mrgreen:

Somehow I always forget that this combination was not used at all in Season 2. :lol:

Oh yeah, and you forgot to mention Shaka Zulu as one of the "best" episodes. Who doesn't love the hyper active Green Monkey boy and the ridiculously easy win? What a showstopper that temple run was! :mrred: :mrred: :mrred: :mrred:

I gave this match up a 7. The colors looked alright together. They weren't the prettiest, but I did like how "firey" the colors looked. The episode selection is VERY hit or miss. The episodes are either really really good, or really really bad. Episodes like Blue Pearl, Atocha, Napoleon, and Catherine the Great are amongst the good episodes. :mrred: :mrorange: Unfortunately, we have downright putrid episodes like Silver Cannonball and Bifocal Monocle that really drag it down. :oops: The distribution of the episodes is pretty equal. While Orange dominates just a tad, both teams get an equal representation at the temple. This pair seemed to happen a lot in Season 2, and not so much in the other two seasons. I would've ranked this pair a little lower, but the near solid episode selection helps boost my score up. ;)

I am not a fan of this color combination at all. I don't know, the colors Red-Orange just look so ugly together. And the episode choices were two extremes for me. I love Lucky Medallion, Two-Cornered Hat, Catherine the Great, and Dragon Lady. On the other hand, I can't stand Charles Lindbergh, Grandy Nanny, and Pytheas. And f***k Bifocal Monocle, I wish that episode burns in hell. -_- If it wasn't for the great episode selections, this might be one of my most hated combos on the show. Not a fan of this at all. I am going to it an average 5.

The only thing that boosted it up for me was the episode selection. I don't like the colors either, but the episodes were the only thing that saved it for me. I might actually lower my vote to a 6, which was what I was actually gonna give it.

And I hate to say this, but the next two combinations are even WORSE than this one. I guess not every combination can look nice. I don't know. =/
