It had to happen. With the popularity of "reality" television over the last several years, it was only a matter of time until "American Gladiators" made it back to television in an attempt to out-muscle the original. At first glance, I thought there was no way I was going to watch this. But now I admit I'm kind of curious. I'm sure no one besides myself has failed to notice that we, as a country, have become..rather..er...portly. But "reality" TV never fails to portray the image of the average American as supremely buffed and surgically enhanced. Needless to say I'm interested in seeing what the competitors look like, but I'm dying to see what 21st Century gladiators look like. This should be interesting. OH, and the names! Anyone remember Zap? How about Malibu? OMG! I have to watch this just to see what the names are going to be.
