We were kind of skeptical about the new American Gladiators after the first episode. Way too much talking for our tastes. But now that we’re fast forwarding through the commercials and the pre/post event chit-chat, it’s a whole lot more tolerable. And it only takes about 15 minutes to watch!
Besides the constant jabber, the main difference between the old version and the new school one is the Gladiators. They just don’t pick `em like they used to. Some of those guys are just plain weird – yes, we’re talking about you Wolf. Still, they beat the heck out of the rejects.
