History does repeat itself and luckily for us that includes a new edition of American Gladiators. NBC launched a new edition of the classic game show tonight with a two-hour special. During the show two contestants and one gladiator were hurt but I think more surprising is that more people didn’t leave injured.
NBC added a few new events but kept the format largely the same. My favorite event, Assault, is among the contests making the transition from the old version. The biggest change maybe the addition of Hulk Hogan as co-host which fits with blast from the past feel of the program.
Don’t worry if you missed tonight’s show, it’s on tomorrow night at 7 p.m. too.
