    is anyone else as jazzed as i am that AG is coming back?!? i PRAY that NBC doesn't ruin it by giving it the rubber stamp reality show treatment- so many of those shows are all the same, blech.

    i want to see some of the same events but improved upon- like the wall making contenders chase gladiators! i think the own the bone should be eliminated- my rotator cuff aches every time i see that event! and the eliminator HAS to have some other new challenges in it- i can't WAIT!!

    i hope some old gladiators are involved, like Zap or Saber, or the one who looks like a "female" dennis rodman- Storm...lol or even old awesome contenders! that would be cool!

    lol , no...there are some interesting characters on to say the least. some muscles, but not like AG. the obstacles are really fun to watch, like AG.
    i am not sure what channel it is for you. but it's called the tech channel...

    Some people I work with just went to a taping last weekend. They didn't really enjoy themselves because of the way it was all set up and they couldn't see everything. Hopefully it will be better on TV.

    I watched this show all the time as a kid. Can't say I'm "jazzed" about it coming back, but I certainly would flip it on. Just worried the modern era will try to do to much with it and ruin the show.

    i agree- I have the same fear. I just want straight up normal athletic contenders- not wanna be actors and actresses. I want my Gladiators like I want my burgers: beefy and cheesy! not as bad as Malibu- and not WWF wannabves like Hawk. Just strong, agile, hot, slightly arrogant eye candy! a little background on the people- fine. but save the drama for springer or oprah. i want challenging physical events that aren't complicaed and convoluted with too many surprises or tricks.

    rant over... bring on the eliminator!!!!

    Redon - did you know that Hulk Hogan is one of the hosts for the new AG? So is Laila Ali.

    i did. not crazy abou hulk hoan- he adds that fake over the top aggression and "acting" to the mix- i don't want the gladiators to be wrestling rejects- i want real athletes who show good sportmanship and real ability! i wish Zap would come back as a host.

    Laila Ali will be great- she's a real athletel who should be a gladiator herself! who else would make a great gladiator... Dwayne Johnson- even though he was a wrestler he's a great guy witha hot bod! Kimbo Slice- he's a street brawler getting into mixed martial arts- look him up onyou tube- he is a MONSTER!

    What a let down! Bad acting and HORRIBLE editing. Then again...it IS American Gladiators. Not impressed.

    actually i agree with you- the banter between contenders and glads sucks. the camera crew is terrible- they miss a lot of crucial moments. but the events themselves and the competitors are awesome!
