    • Surely going backwards is a bad thing?

      When the new American Gladiators started earlier in the year, I hated it, and longed for the original UK gladiators. When I learnt that there would be a revival of the UK gladiators I was very excited.

      However, my excitement was an anti-climax to what i had anticipated. I thought it would be arena based, just like the original one, but no.

      They had decided to follow US TV example and try to make it just like theirs, but on a smaller budget....

      Therefore, we ended up with limited events (only Duel and Pyramid being as they should be) and classic events like Atlaspheres and Swingshot being excluded.

      Also, the gladiators are not very sportsman-like (unlike the originals) which is a problem, because you have to like the gladiators to keep watching it. Oblivion may be the new Wolf, but why are Destroyer and Tornado being so aggressive after the events. It just makes people dislike them, which is a shame because they are so good at their events.

      Although this series will make it to the second competition, without major changes it will be cancelled.

      This will be a shame, because the original was legendary, and the new series should mirror its integrity and sportsmanship.moreless
    • gladiators is a show where 4 contestants compete against 12 gladiators in a number of challenges. you will need muscles, speed and strength in order to beat the gladiators.

      gladiators is the show where the whole family gather around the sofa to watch this amazing form of entertainment. when i go back to school everyone is talking about it. i haven't met anyone that doesn't like gladiators. my favourite male gladiator is spartan and my favourite female gladiator definitely had to be battle axe. i love all the events in gladiators especially the eliminator. gladiators is my all time favourite and may not look like it but it is suitable for children. gladiators is a must see. this one hour a week show makes life worth living. it's the reason that i get out of bed on a sunday.moreless
    • I was never a big fan of the original Gladiators, but decided to watch the new series because of the hype...

      ... and I have to admit, it isn't half bad!! However, I've also been watching the 90s episodes and find them to be much better than the new series. The contenders actually lasted longer than 3 seconds against the Gladiators. The new Gladiators are great though (especially Atlas and Panther) but you can tell that their personalities are so fake for the media. That's one of the reasons I don't like the show as much as the old series. But, it is a good show to watch on a Sunday, and it is becoming addictive. I just hope it gets a bit better in the upcoming episodes...moreless
