The New American Gladiators

... or The New Celebration of Trailer Park Wife Beaters




Either way, I've heard that it is very politically insightful.

I don't know what Chris Carter looks like, but given the description, I am assuming this must be him.



With nearly godlike strength and skill, he is the ultimate warrior. Able to physically dominate foes with his impressive physique, he is equally adept at mind games and will attempt to mentally defeat opponents before the battle even begins. Titan is a double threat who will find a way to win... one way or another.

Yes, yes that is most definitely Chris Carter.

Or Dolph Lundgren.

I normally agree, but its gotta be damn near impossible to mess up American Gladiators. Plus, you can tell from previews that they are not taking this too seriously.

I'm excited.

Aren't we ready for The Running Man to be a reality yet?




Whoever loses, we win.

What could possibly be better then kicking ass with giant Q-tips?


Nothing.

A sad display of society's downfall. Even the Ken dolls are on steroids now.

Did anyone else watch this last night? I surprisingly found it quite entertaining. Granted, I was a fan of the original back in the day, but the new version is essentially the same idea with a much better budget, production value, commentating, etc. It may be dumb, but it's still quite fun.

I was surprised by how difficult the final "eliminator" event looked. They may have to make it slightly easier, it was killing everyone.

I caught the final eliminator thing last night.

It's funny, because I remember, back in the day, thinking how kitschy the original was.

Now, it's beyond kitsch and just lame.

You just say that because I said something different. Why must you constantly attack and shame me, JessicaAnn?! Why do you have to constantly hurt me with your words? I'm CRYING. Is that what you want? You want me to cry about American Gladiators? Well I am! I'm crying so hard that even Nitro himself can hear me from his American graveiator.
