    I saw this previewed at the movies the other day. Ali and Hulk hogan are the hosts. The gladiators all have the same type of names and look buff as well. Some of the competitions looks the same such as Joust, but there are others that are new. I didn't see the tennis ball cannon one though.

    The cannon is there. However, there's water involved now.

    American Gladiators

    New Series Premiere. It was alright they need less Hulk Hogan and Ali and less talking to the contestants. It is a waste of time when they could just compete more. I liked the format of the old AG and this one needs to be retooled in order to survive. Hulk Hogan looked like a bum wearing black jeans and a black sleeveless shirt and he added nothing to the show. He said brother every other word and his questions were obvious and the answers were terrible. Focus on the competition and not on the contestants tired stories and lame responses.

    I watched and it was very very similar to the original show. Several of the old competitions were there like the "Guantlet", "Assault", and "Pyramid".

    The Gladiators look like Pro Wrestlers and they all have gimmicky names like Malitia, The Wolf, Justice, and you have to check out Helga! She's this big nordic looking chick in blonde pig tails. Man is she hefty.

    There were 3 injuries on the premiere episode that wasn't a surprise considering how physical the Gladiators and competitions were.

    On the first competition, the one where you have to drop the balls into the baskets before getting tackled (AKA crumpled) by the Gladiators, one of the lady contestants gets her leg broken by one of the She-Hulk Gladiators.

    On the next competition with the guys the Gladiator - Malitia hurts his arm on "Hanging Tough" and couldn't finish.

    During the second half of the show, a woman contestant who was a US Marine split her head open on a bar during the final obstacle course race. The amazing thing is this happened right at the begining of the course while she was swimming under water and she still finished the course. She didn't win but considering she had blood running down her head, I was amazed she could even finish the race.

    All-in-All, I thought it was a great show. They kept the mood light and even had a lot of trash talk and comraderie between the Gladiators and contestants.

    Larry is not coming back, he didn't have a meeting with Orlando for not reason, yeah he is coming back to the NBA but not to the Pacers, the notion that he is a taking a year off and then come back is absurd.

    Andy is the intern at my church. I have never met him but know some of his friends pulling for him. It was still hard sitting through the Hulkster and posturing with some connection to the show.
    "They could turn out to be only innocent mathematicians, I suppose," muttered Woevre's section officer, de Decker.

    "'Only.'" Woevre was amused. "Someday you'll explain to me how that's possible. Seeing that, on the face of it, all mathematics leads, doesn't it, sooner or later, to some kind of human suffering."

    I always hated AG. it's so stacked in the Gladiator's favor, I could never get behind it. About the only reason I even peeked at this new version is because of Gina "Crush" Carano.

    I haven't read anyone's comments in this thread yet. My question is.

    Do you think the contenders are actors?

    No, but I think they do coach them as to what to say. Some of the smack talk seems a little scripted but it could just be that they purposely pick people that are articulate and comfortable in front of the camera.
