The New American Gladiators


The new American Gladiators premiered on Sunday night and I watched. I watched last night again (in between the sad football game). The old American Gladiators was a great show and I like this one too. Although there are complaints about bad commentating and the show losing its originality, but I love it. I, personally, LOVE Hulk Hogan and am glad to see him back in a sporting event and without his ridiculous wife (ex) and spoiled, talentless daughter in a really bad reality show. Also, I like watching the females compete better than the males. The men competitors are usually average, but the women are typically pretty buff and amazing. Good motivation to get to the gym.

Are you a fan? What do you think?

Huge fan, right here! I loved the 80's version and I was happy to see that they kept some of the same games. Only now they include water!

I desperately want to try that barrel roll thing on the Eliminator, that looks so fun.

Glad it's back.

Loved the old one and love the new one. The eliminator did get tougher. They used to do the uphill treadmill at the beginning and people had trouble then. Now they do it at the end when they are all exhausted. Great to see them all trying so hard to make it up but they can barely do it.

I love it! I love that they didn't change it up entirely - they took what was good from the old one and enhanced it. I couldn't believe how grueling the eliminator was. I'd love to try the course - just for fun, no racing, please.

LOVED the old version, too. Just like everyone else.

Do they still have that joust game? Where they hit one another with gigantic q-tips?

And, do they still have great names, like: "Earth", "Wind" and "Fire"?

Err...wait...
