Someone should make a thread in the cheering and venting forum for the next episode. ;-7

To be fair, they were all awful in the gauntlet.

Was it just me or did all the Gladiators seem to suck? I missed the first hour but watched the 2nd and the Gladiators just didn't seem to be all that to me.

A few of my thoughts...

-I agree, Wolf cannot be a real human being. There are robot body parts under his skin.

-Chad, the skateboarder, was the biggest tool ever. My favorite moment was when he talked trash on Wolf, then Wolf proceeded to destroy him in the ring game.

-Pyramid is probably my favorite, when it is with the guys. Watching Mollivan and the guy who tried out for the original American Gladiators get rocked by Wolf and the other gladiator with the comb over was pretty hilarious.

-My friends and I were thinking, what if they incorporated celebrity appearances into this show? Either have celebrity Gladiators or a celebrity vs Gladiators show? How sweet would that be? Imagine if it were Shawn Merriman out there tonight giving Chad a sack lunch.

-I will probably switch between this and the Championship game tomorrow night.

Well that's just like, your opinion man.

I loved watching those two girls do that obstacle course at the end and getting stuck on that ramp for a minute each. Two hours did seem a little overboard but I will put aside one hour every Monday to watch this. I have to imagine the rating for this show were amazing tonight; probably half the people I know watched it.

Oh and apparently Toa is The Rocks cousin.

A lot of potential for awesomeness there.


My favorites in the old days were Powerball and Assault, and they managed to screw them both up in this new version (by giving the buckets wider openings and making the guys load up the guns instead of just pointing and shooting).
