    I'm curious what everyone thinks too!

    I didn't see it tonight, but my eyebrows were raised cuz I used to watch the old series as a kid and the modern take is a little weird (at least as presented on commercials ... the whole reality elimination genre and all makes me skeptical ...)

    I wish the guys last night had done the wall climbing bit, so we could have seen those buns pumping away. I also wish the guys would have gone shirtless like some of the gladiators did. Ultimately I like the eye candy, but I prefer the old format which was more akin to a sports competition than the current reality show bravado.

    I stayed up watching that crap... kinda dissapointed. Granted, I watched the original series through the eyes of a little kid, but I remember it being the most awesome thing in the universe... this one isn't as cool. Probably bitched about it for a good mile or so on the run this morning... I have patient friends.

    It has had me thinking of what my Gladiator name would be, though...

    Saw the last half -- it conflicted with Desperate Housewives, after all -- and was not impressed. Liked the old format better.

    Our local gossip columnist says that gladiator Militia made porn flicks for Colt. Hot guy.

    I love the show. I'm hooked. Maybe a bit goofy at times, but I love it. I found myself yelling at the TV earlier tonight: "Climb the fucking wall, Jeff!!"

    It's not that bad... The gladiators from the first season were much hotter...especially "Laser" and "nitro" who doesn't remember them? lol These new gladiators are more annoying..Titan is the "hottest" of them all I think. I think the old format was better too... I actually went to see the live tour when they were at MSG (Madison Square Garden) way back then. regarding this version, and the 1st show... I was very happy that Double A (our very own FDNY firefighter) won the first round! I'll keep watching...there will definitely be some hot men worth watching...even if the gladiators themselves aren't all that....lol

    Thanks alan95823. I recognize him now. He was in both Colt and Playgirl. Amazing body.

    I was hoping that Titan (Mike O'Hearn) was the one who posed for one of them. We've all seen the side of his ass in a dozen Spencer's cards. It's be nice to get the full view from both sides. icon_wink.gif

    I agree with you, anubisync. I thought the older gladiators were hotter, especially Nitro.

    The old one was definately better. They seem to have a nw twist with he new one were its almost like a modern game show where the reactions are fake and the contestants over act everything. The old show didnt have that, it was just straight clean awesome athleticism in its finest. thats my take on it.
    Conclusion: the new one sucks...

    I agree that it seems like the contestants over act and their responses seem staged and written for them.

    I watched it and I loved it. It brought me back to when I was a kid and I used to look at Nitro's HUGE lats and be like... damn he's huge.

    I liked the lady's competition a little bit more than the mens. The ladies were all... well... really scary. I would not walk down an alley alone with them.

    And I didn't think it was scripted. I mean that one military chick hit her head on the pipe in the eliminator and was bleeding at the end. I'm looking forward to more episodes and more hot men icon_smile.gif

    It was pretty crappy. The worst part though was we had to listen to some of the most inane questions and chatter to/from the contestants. Even they seemed uncomfortable with the contrived nature of it all.
