Legends of the Hidden Temple Guards
If you were not born sometime in the 80s than you are most likely not familiar with the amazing range of game shows that Nickelodeon had to offer. Last night I indulged in a little YouTube, and watched a few episodes of my favorite game shows. I learned two things from this experience; The hosts were usually drunk and often had the look of suicide creeping up on their faces, and the temple guards in Legend of the Hidden Temple were fucking terrifying. I hate haunted houses and I hate when people jump out at me. So when I'm pillaging through a Styrofoam temple in the semi dark looking for "Buddha's Bellybutton" under a time constraint, the last thing I want is for some crazy reject actor to come flying at me wearing a tribal mask. These poor kids practically had minor heart attacks, and I think one time a kid even ran straight out of the temple into Kurt Fog's arms. Even though I loved Legends of the Hidden Temple and desperately wanted to be on it- and be a Silver Snake, I made the decision that that dream would never happen, simply because the guards were just too terrifying. Also, I love how dumb the kids were on the show. How many reruns do you have to watch before you can properly identity the fact that you have to slam the monkey's head down in the Shrine of the Silver Monkey? Oh and I know what you're thinking, and the answer is yes, I do own a Silver Snakes t-shirt thanks to this website.
