The Cowboys are such a disappointment year in and year out. I'm not really surprised that they lost the way they did.

I'm also not surprised that we're getting blown out by the Chiefs. I was honestly expecting this.

I'm predicting Chiefs vs. Packers because I'm sure that's what State Farm wants (their QBs are State Farm guys). :roll:

Also, I have to say I can't believe we got into the playoffs. The fact we even made it in the first place is amazing. We haven't really looked good all year, but we made it somehow.

I thought this was a 10 episode season, but we had a new episode tonight. Spoiler below:

Of all rooms to cause the team trouble in the temple, it was the Steamy Hollows. The front runner kept making the same stupid mistake, stepping on the wrong button and wasting time having to do it all over again. That cost the team precious time and of course, the Queen's Armory caused problems again. One piece of armor fell off at the end and it had to be put back on. Horrible room is horrible. Oddly enough, the Pit of Despair had the artifact. That's a first. Sadly, time ran out as the second runner was on the ladder between the Queen's Armory and Dark Forest.

Last episode spoiler below for tonight's temple run...

Yet another difficult temple run. The item was in the Crypt of the Heartless, the bottom room next to the Crystal Senote. This layout was set up in a way that the Green Monkeys had to enter EVERY room except one (the Room of the Lost Treasure, the center room below the Shrine of the Silver Monkey, would've been that room). That's ten rooms! That's crazy. The front runner was fast and got taken out of the temple at the Steamy Hollows. He gave his partner plenty of time to win, but not only was she pretty slow, but the Queen's Armory struck again. I think it killed at least 40 seconds. Pieces of armor kept falling off and because the second runner wasn't that tall, she struggled to get the headdress on at the end before time ran out.

If this show gets another season, I hope that the Queen's Armory goes away. That room is such a time killer and it's apparent that it's a pain to get each armor item onto the queen. The room doesn't even look that fun to go through. As a viewer, that looks like a tedious objective to complete. I say replace it with something else; something that isn't boring to watch and doesn't waste so much time.

It's sad that this season's finale ended in a loss and sadly, given the low viewership these episodes have gotten, I'm not that optimistic that this version will get another season. Hopefully I'm wrong.

Near day late edit: I completely forgot that there was a door from the Queen's Armory that leads to the Pit of Despair, so there was a chance the second runner could've avoided the Dark Forest if given the chance. That means this could've been another 9 room run, but that still would've been a lot.

Is it me or are these temple layouts insanely difficult? Even with the added minute to the clock, teams are still struggling to even reach the item. Some of the rooms being big time wasters like the Queen's Armory doesn't help.

No new episode tonight. Christmas shows, in November. :roll:

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.

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.

Watch one of the returning teams be John and Tia. :P

I'm happy to see that Kirk Fogg is making an appearance this Sunday and I'm also looking forward to seeing former contestants again, even if they didn't make it to the temple or if they made it to the temple and did poorly. Hopefully we get to see a flashback or two of each team or player from the Nick version.

About what happened in last night's temple run. It's kind of bothering me. Spoiler below:

In the Nick version, whenever a contestant struggled to put the monkey together, Kirk Fogg would usually speak into his microphone to help them out and the contestant could easily hear him. In the CW version, Cristela Alonzo really isn't loud whenever a contestant is struggling with the monkey, as was the case with last night's episode. She wasn't loud at all and the guy couldn't hear her. I think it would've helped the guy out big time if he could hear her better. That doesn't excuse the poor attempt (seriously, you can walk in front of the monkey pedestal in this version to get a better look, as Tyler did last night), but I really think this version doesn't do a good enough job at having the host (and the second runner for that matter) be loud enough for the temple runner to hear if they're struggling in the temple. Maybe if Cristela had a mic like Kirk did, this wouldn't be a problem.

Spoiler below, read at your own risk:

All those kids who struggled in the past to put the Silver Monkey together? You can feel a little better now after seeing tonight's attempt. That was awful. I think that guy took over a minute because the belly was on wrong. He pulled a Larry from Mysterious Manuscript. :roll:

Came in here to say that yesterday, I tested positive for covid-19. I didn't feel good a day or two before the test, but right now, I'm the worst I have felt. Covid is not pleasant to have.

Man I miss many old members here. PPF, TAW, TBK, ALF, RJF, PP4L if you see this please say you are still here.

I'm mainly worried about PPF because I was responsible for her withdrawal from this website. I think it was an argument over whether Lion-Slashed Jacket or Melted Head had the better temple run and I lost my cool. I could be remembering the details wrong, but I remember being responsible for her leaving and I still haven't gotten over that, especially since she said she would never forgive me. I hope she's doing okay. I really regret getting mad at her, especially over a show like Legends. :(

I hope everyone else is doing okay too. The people you mentioned have all probably moved on to other things in life, but I still hope they're well.

Spoilers below, read at your own risk:

FIRST TEMPLE WIN OF THE REBOOT!!! It was a solo win too! I honestly didn't think this would be a win because the first runner struggled with the Room of the Heartless (I think that's what it's called). She even got met by a temple guard that was hiding behind the locked door after the objective was finally complete, similar to that of the Chamber of the Sacred Markers. It was early on in the run when that happened, so I thought she would eventually get caught by a second guard at some point. However, in the Pit of Despair, she chose to go right, into the Spider's Lair where she then entered the Room of the Lost Treasure (again, I'm not sure if that room name is correct; I'll get these names figured out eventually, lol). She was slow with this one too, but once she was done, she entered the Shrine of the Silver Monkey and I was fully expecting a second temple guard here. However, it didn't happen. She assembled the statue easily, entered the Room of the Beloved (I think that's it) where the Talking Rooster (yes, really) was at, and won with plenty of time to spare.

I'd say the Red Jaguars got lucky here. I really do believe this temple run had an alternate path because those other two temple guards had to be somewhere. So maybe this reboot's temple runs aren't always set to be one path after all? If that's the case, then I'll say that I'm glad. Multiple pathways in the temple are a good thing in my opinion. The more options, the better. That being said, let's just hope these teams avoid pulling an Electrified Key by taking the longest route possible.

End spoiler. Putting this here so that it's harder for people to read what was said above if anyone chooses to do a quick reply.

A random thought popped up in my head while I was at work today:

What would happen in this reboot if in the temple, a contestant drops a piece of the Silver Monkey into the room below (just like in the Montezuma and Henry Hudson episodes)? The Dark Forest isn't directly below it now and even then, this Dark Forest doesn't have trees with temple spirits in them.
