American Gladiators For a New Generation

Posted by tvondvdcritic on November 28, 2007


Who doesn’t remember American Gladiators? Well guess what? Now even the new generation of youth will be polluted by this wonderfully bad show. NBC is bringing back the show in a revamped format with hosts Laila Ali and Hulk Hogan. If that alone isn’t bad enough to get you to watch I don’t know what is.

 I fondly remember watching this show and eating rice crispy treats as I was glued to the set seeing if Blaze or Gold could bring down their opponents on the wall or knock them off in jousting. How into this show was I? I owned the nintendo game, which was horribly bad, but oh so good. I threw my controller on more than one occassion while always losing in the final round since I could never do the rope game or the powerball. That’s not all. I also owned the entire trading card set of American Gladiators. You read that right. I own, and still have, American Gladiator trading cards. In fact, I came across them in my garage a while back, wondering what ever happened to Zap and Siren (the deaf one).
