This is shockingly bad
13 May 2008 | by brdlybaumSee all my reviews

How can I type ten lines on this load of rubbish?!?!? Or more to the point, how can I type ten lines on this load of rubbish?!?!? I am really going to struggle with this review! This should NEVER have been brought back! OK, so that's not quite true as I did want to see what was new about it after all of the hype that Sky had caused and created and I was so very, very disappointed! The games are the same, the only difference being that instead of hitting a crash mat when a contestant or gladiator the person now lands in a swimming pool. The eliminator is slightly different in that they have to swim a bit first to get to the cargo net and they have to run up the pyramid to get to the zip line. Other than that, no difference. Oh whoop-de-doo for that because that really adds to the 'excitement'. (Oh, and if you think I being serious in the previous sentence I wasn't, I was being sarcastic!). The costumes are less daring/much less daring and are boring/more boring to look at than they were in the nineties, almost as if they had been designed on the prudishness of the seventies or eighties. People are saying how bad John Fashanu was in the original Gladiators (personally, I thought he was better than Ulrika Jonsson, but there wasn't a lot in it!), well Ian wright should never present anything ever again as he is absolutely, infinitely worse than dire! With all of the hype and the fact that so much was made of the swimming pool I thought the program would be full of brand new games from start to finish instead of trying to fob us viewers off with 'old favourites' (emphasis on the old!) proving that they couldn't be bothered to sit down for five minutes and think of something new not just for above the pool but I'm sure they could also have thought about games to play in it too. I know I could!
