Endurance TV Show Facts

Twenty teens are dropped off in the middle of a remote location and forced to battle it out for a title and secret grand prize. Find out more about this Discovery Kids show!

Endurance - An Overview

Each season of Endurance starts off in a new location with 20 new, teen competitors - think Survivor with a twist. Instead of competing alone, pairs are arranged (one boy, one girl) and they battle it out as a team. In the end, both members of the winning team, wins the grand prize (this year it's a trip to Hawaii). How are the winners determined? Well, each episode the pairs will compete in different challenges. Whoever wins the challenge, also wins a pyramid piece. There are a total of 13 pyramid pieces and the first team to win them all becomes the ultimate Endurance players.

Endurance - The Pyramid Pieces

  • Friendship - This pyramid piece symbolizes the importance of getting to know your fellow competitors because their friendship will often be the key to making it to the end.
  • Teamwork - Obviously if you can't work with your teammate, things are going to be a long uphill battle to winning.
  • Ingenuity - This pyramid piece will go to the team who uses clever thinking and imagination to solve problems fast and efficiently.
  • Trust - Without trust, a team can fall apart. So it's not only important to trust your partner, but to also trust in yourself to endure through this game.
  • Knowledge - This pyramid piece doesn't necessarily go to the team with the highest IQ, but to the team that learns from its experiences and uses that knowledge to their advantage.
  • Heart - Passion will take you a long way in life and in the game of Endurance. If you have the heart to go after what you want, you have what it takes to succeed.
  • Strength - If you've watched the show, you know that it takes some serious physical and mental strength to get through the rigorous demands of the game.
  • Perseverance - This piece will go to the team that doesn't give up - even if they are always lagging behind.
  • Luck - Even the most prepared team sometimes will win a competition just out of sheer luck and that's where this pyramid piece comes in.
  • Leadership - Even in a game where everyone is out for themselves, some players are just natural leaders. The competitor(s) that display good leadership skills will score this piece.
  • Discipline - It's hard to stay focused in a game that takes so much out of you, but the team that is disciplined enough to do this deserves this piece.
  • Courage - We're all afraid of something, but the team that has the courage to overcome their fears will move that one step closer to the end.
  • Commitment - You may not get you ideal partner at the beginning of the game, but giving them your full dedication will guarantee you some success.

Many of the reviews and critics say it's bad because they are only looking at it from 'comic to movie' perspective. It was still a really cool movie and you should go see it. I'd have to agree with this. The movie itself was great. I think some people looked at it poorly because they were expecting something more similar to the older films or comparing it too hard to the comics. I personally think that it was a great way to reinvent some of the characters.

"It's so hard to talk when you want to k-ll yourself. That's above and beyond everything else, and it's not a mental complaint-it's a physical thing, like it's physically hard to open your mouth and make the words come out. They don't come out smooth and in conjunction with your brain the way normal people's words do; they come out in chunks as if from a crushed-ice dispenser; you stumble on them as they gather behind your lower lip. So you just keep quiet.” Ned Vizzini, "It's Kind of a Funny Story"

Powerslave
“Isn't there something in living dangerously?' There's a great deal in it,' the Controller replied. 'Men and women must have their adrenals stimulated from time to time.' What?' questioned the Savage, uncomprehending. It's one of the conditions of perfect health. That's why we've made the V.P.S. treatments compulsory.' V.P.S.?' Violent Passion Surrogate. Regularly once a month. We flood the whole system with adrenin. It's the complete physiological equivalent of fear and rage. All the tonic effects of murdering Desdemona and being murdered by Othello, without any of the inconvenience.' But I like the inconveniences.' We don't,' said the Controller. 'We prefer to do things comfortably.' But I don't want comfort. I want God, I want poetry, I want real danger, I want freedom, I want goodness. I want sin.' In fact,' said Mustapha Mond, 'you're claiming the right to be unhappy. Not to mention the right to grow old and ugly and impotent; the right to have ######## and cancer, the right to have too little to eat; the right to be lousy; the right to live in constant apprehension of what may happen tomorrow; the right to catch typhoid; the right to be tortured by unspeakable pains of every kind.' There was a long silence. I claim them all,' said the Savage at last. Mustapha Mond shrugged his shoulders. 'You're welcome,' he said.”
