    Well, when the writers don't want to write, make a show that doesn't need them!

    I actually watched an episode of the original american gladiators the other week, while corny as hell, just as when I was a kid, I still want to be on it(the original that is, dunno about the new one. something about rolling around in a giant hamster ball and being shot at with tennis balls is awesome).

    Oh man, this brings me back. The obstacle course was the stuff dreams were made of, at least for me and all the kids on my street.

    I had the joust playset. Good times. XD

    As long as all the contestants and Gladiators are women. And hot.

    Climbing up the wall... then grabbing each other falling off the wall in a sweaty, heaving, straining heap...

    What?

    I'll give it a try.. mostly for a nostalgia factor..

    I loved the one with the air cannon firing tennis balls. Always wanted to try that challenge.. especially on the firing side.

    If they do something like that then there better be a UK version again, i'd pay money to see Wolf eaten by a lion.

    As long as it isn't like the last 2 seasons of the original show, it should be ok.

    Edit: After seeing that youtube video of it I have a bad feeling about it.

    Or Hollywood is just out of ideas...... again.

    But the air cannon firing tennis balls was the best. I mean who doesnt want to fire a tennis ball going 300 PSI at someone else?

    Awesome, I used to love that show.

    My friends and I would play out the firing range/obstacle course throughout their house with an arsenal of nerf guns. Damn, I miss being a kid.

    No word about this in the UK, but apparently its coming back to Australia, as well as the US.

    Its only a matter of time before it comes back to the UK. And Jet was a pivotal part of my childhood. And Baywatch.
