Trivia

The day's shows were recorded section-by-section. In other words, every moat crossing was recorded first, back to back; every Steps of Knowlege round was recorded second, and every Temple Game round was recorded third. The Temple Runs were recorded last. See more »

Goofs

In his Temple Run commentary, it's clear Kirk Fogg often forgot about the diagonal passage connecting the Shrine of the Silver Monkey and the lower left-hand room. See more »

Quotes

Kirk Fogg: Ah, Oh no! Looks like the temple guard got you!
[pause takes extra long breath]
Kirk Fogg: ... But don't worry guys... you're not going to Space Camp but at least you've got those remote control trucks and your confidence.

My childhood dream
14 December 2002 | by (Washington) – See all my reviews

I remember watching this show when I was young, and for years all I ever wanted was to be on it. Sadly, no such luck.

This was a fun show that kept me and a million other kids coming back every week. I'm afraid I'll have to correct a previous reviewer that this show consisted of six teams and four rounds, not four and three. To trim the fat down to four, the teams had to cross a "moat" using some cleverly named "ancient" apparatus. Once across, four teams would listen to a giant stone head tell them a "legend" (normally a story from history, occassionally mythology), and answer questions on it. The crux of the game was an object from the "legend" placed in the temple. After that, the two remaining teams would do battle against one another to enter the temple. Prizes were won if the team retrieved the object.

Whenever I flip around and see reruns of this, I smile and remember my younger days. While this show of course won't have such meaning for anyone else who today watches it, it's always fun to suspend reality and root along something that happened 5-10 years ago. This show would still work if it were produced today (the target audience wouldn't care about repetition) just as it did then. A nostalgic show for me, a nice time for virtually anyone.
