I think it might be a good thing that we missed American Gladiators. Something about it really bothers me. If I really wanted to see it I would just watch the reruns. They are hilarious and fun and i think they taped 345,685,234,437 episodes. I've never seen the same one twice.
Also, cheap, new, unoriginal reality shows are a ploy by major networks and big production studios to starve out the striking writers. If you watch this you're a fascist.
On a side note, and keeping with a developing theme, a little man love for a real gladiator.
