The Heart Room / Re: Legends is coming back!

So, I finally watched the entire Pearl Necklace of Rama episode. This is first episode of the Reboot that I've watched all the way through. My thoughts on the Reboot and every round of the episode are below. Overall, this was a pretty enjoyable episode and has motivated me to watch the previous episodes. I do have some complaints about the new format of the show which I will list below:

- Moat: Interesting decision to reduce the number of teams from 6 to 4 in the moat round. Not that it matters, since 2 teams ultimately make it to the temple games anyways. It does kind of suck not all 6 teams are present at once. I like how the moat in the Reboot involves a more extensive type of challenge instead of simply having two players trying to make it across without falling in. I always found the moat round in the original show to be uninteresting. I also like how teams receive an introduction, whereas in the OG it was just during the temple games. Although the constant cutting away to get the contestants' commentary might get annoying after watching the show for a while.

The moat round in this episode was pretty entertaining. The Orange Iguanas and Blue Barracudas were neck-and-neck. The Silver Snakes struggled pretty bad with trying to stay afloat. I liked the introduction for Nick and Josh and the flashback to the original show. Although they could've done better with the flashback instead of post a couple of Nick GAS screenshots.  :afro: Josh looks like the same in the face from his original episode, but I would've never guessed that was Nick. I guess not wearing his glasses makes him look like a different person. I wonder if they known each other for a long time? Maybe Nick was the one that got Josh interested in competing on the OG show?

- SOK: Not much has changed about this round. It looks like they are sticking with a cartoony artstyle for the stories. I do like how they kept the original chime for the SOK. Since this show is geared towards an older audience, they can get away with more violence in the legends. Orange Iguanas and Blue Barracudas pretty much dominated this round. LOL @ Nick frantically trying to step on the step markings in order to chime in.  :lol:

- Temple Games: I'm not a fan of this format of temple games. The teams are pretty much guaranteed to go to the temple with 2 Pendants. In the original show, the more Pendants that you earned meant the more likely you will be safe for all 3 guards. With this new format, the third temple guard is essentially worthless.

- Temple Run: I will admit that I had some major doubts about the temple, but the temple looks great so far. I like the objectives for all the new rooms featured in this episode. It will take some time to get use to them though. I also like how they brought back some old rooms like the Pit of Despair, Dark Forest, and of course the iconic Shrine. I also like the "just assemble the damn monkey" line by Olmec during the temple rundown. It made me chuckle.  :lol: The temple runner's contestant POV angle is a nice addition too. I do wish they kept the temple run theme from the original show.

As for the temple run in this episode, I agree with PP319 that Kirk was to blame for Josh and Nick losing. Was there a reason to interrupt the temple run for the Kirk cameo? They could've at least halted the clock while Nick and Josh were talking to Kirk. What if Nick and Josh never made it to the temple? How would they treat Kirk's cameo then? Although Nick wasting time in the Pit of Despair trying to open the door directly leading to the artifact did waste some time. You should know better, Nick.  :afro:

Overall, this was a good episode and it was nice seeing a couple of former contestant's return to the Reboot. I liked how Nick knows that he's famous among the fanbase for his jump out of the temple.  :lol: I hope they feature more former contestants in future episodes.

That's awesome that Nick and Josh returned to the show and even made it to the temple. I have this episode taped and will watch it tomorrow. Out of all the Nicks on the show (Great Seal, Melted Head, Annie Oakley, and Missing Weather Maps), I expected Great Seal nick to be the last one. From the tone of his interview, it sounded like he didn't have a good time. Or maybe he was just being a little dramatic.    :afro:

I don't think Kristen's weight had anything to do with her performance. She just wasn't really an athletic person. The talent pool in Season 1 was pretty bad too and the producers pretty much allowed any contestant that signed up for the show to compete. That's why you see moat rejects from earlier episodes appear again on the last episode of each production day in Season 1. Kristen and Jim were even moat rejects from the Geronimo episode. I feel that most of the comments about Kristen's weight are supposed to be tongue-in-cheek comments and not taken seriously. Monica from Bifocal Monocle was skinny, but she struggled immensely in climbing the wall in the Pit of the Pendulum. Also, Garrett from Mata Hari is another contestant that received comments about his weight as welll. But he did a pretty good job in the temple except the Holes of Python (which caused a lot of contestants trouble).

I was just wondering, were all of the favorable contestants in the original Legends of the Hidden Temple skinny legends? It’s said in the Temple Run review for "The Lucky Pot-Bellied Pig of Amelia Earhart" that having not been thin was the reason Kristin had trouble climbing to the Observatory.

Noticed that the "flashback" clips of Josh and Nick had the Nick GaS logo on them. Did the producers just grab the episodes off of Youtube or Dailymotion or something?

Also, quite the coincidence that the temple games matchup pitted the teams that Josh (Orange) and Nick (Blue) beat in the temple games in their original episodes.

Again, spoilers;






Spoilers below. You know the drill...















So it was Nick from Henry VIII and Josh from Empress Theodora that returned and they were on the same team, the Blue Barracudas. I thought all players in this episode were going to be ones that competed in the Nick version, so that was a little disappointing. What was more disappointing was Kirk Fogg's guest appearance. He was hiding in the Dark Forest during the temple run pretending to be the host and shaking the temple runners' hands as they were running through the temple. In this case, it was Nick and Josh. I thought Kirk would have a bigger role than this and it turns out him being in the Dark Forest briefly chatting with Nick and Josh may have cost them the grand prize. The team made it to the object, but fell a few seconds short of victory. I think the brief amount of time they stopped to be with Kirk cost them the win. If the producers were trying to prevent a win and save some money, they succeeded here.


Absolutely. But here’s also the thing; you completely miss Josh heading the The Royal Rage Room. He just exits the Room of the Beloved and is in then Crystal Cenote within a matter of seconds. I think it was also some tricky editing done as well.

Edit: Just wanted to throw it out there that I was happy to see Kirk again. It's just that I wish his role in this episode was better.

This Sunday's episode will have Josh and Nick from the original series returning. Not sure which Josh and Nick as there was more than one Josh and more than one Nick on the show.

If Nick's last name is Borey, what's Joshua's last name? There was a Joshua in Season 1 whose last name is Shullener.

Not sure, but I’m certain that Nick is the Silver Snake from “Henry the VIII’s Great Seal” and Josh is from “Imperial Purple Robe”. I’m in a Legends group on Facebook and someone put a video from the show both contestants mentioned their time on the 90’s version

And Henry VIII Nick/Empress Theodora Josh confirmed.


😁👍👍👍
