Ch 7 reviving Gladiators

Post by Max_TMP » Tue Sep 11, 2007 9:41 am

Gladiators is comming back!
Quotes from SMH:
"We're extremely excited about relaunching this massive show which was such an audience favorite", says Sevens head of program development Brad Lyons.

"It will have a new look but retain the classic battles. We are on the hunt for a new bunch of Gladiators and those prepared to take them on."


Looks like more capping oppertunities comming up. :D

No they probably won't, unless this new series gets axed and they need to fill the gap

They decided to bring it back because American Gladiators announced that it would be back in 2008. I don't know why because unless the UK & SA versions start up again there won't be too much of an international annual contest anyway. The difference between the Australian & US shows is that in the latter of the two was more successful & ran for a lot longer. The Australian one only went for three years & was axed due to poor ratings & high production costs. It does cause one to wonder if it could be more successful a second time around...

Personally, I'd rather we did our own version of Robot Wars & got some international specials of that going! :lol:

I'd like to see the old series as well, also would be nice to see on new version.

Robot wars is also something I'd like to see in AU :P

Gawd help us! I always said, (when the original came out too) that unless it's formatted in the same hardcore way as "The Running Man" with Arnie, then I’m not interested and its a complete waste of time. LOL. Shoulder pads and PG rating styled fights completely suck!

FYI, these days if I want to watch a Gladiator styled show I'll watch some UFC, and that shit is entertaining/shocking!!

I gotta say, I honestly think in this day and age - with all the "real violence", etc thats around on TV/Satellite/Internet – its gonna tank faster than the show Headland! lol. Hmm, seems I'm the only one who doesn’t care for it, then or now, but I do have to admit, anything with Zoe Naylor in it – and I'm there!!! Though I would have loved to have seen Kimberly Joseph again.

PS: FFS, if they really want to go down that road (rehashing old shows) then why doesn't someone over at the networks grow some balls and bring back ‘Hey Hey its Saturday’!!!

[I'm most probably gonna catch flak over this but...] Now there was a good show! I miss it!

Haha, now thinking back, I still remember being in a club (irish pub) in Sydney back in 96, and watching as Vulcan “John Seru” got into a massive punch up at the bar – hehe, it took like six guys to bust it up and thanks to him, after all the chaos died down me and my mate scored with two girls because of it LOL – true story.

thanks Vulcan. lol

Running Man style would be great, sets would be expensive but it would get better ratings.
Wasn't there rumour of Daryl trying to negotiate another Hey Hey its Saturday?
I liked Hey Hey too, though Daryls interview technique is just as bad as Roves. Sometimes good but mostly awkward.

Nice style on the Vulcan fight :D

So, who are your favourite Gladiators so far?

I have to say BIONICA and DESTINY were my favourites. 8)

Special mention must also go to co-host Zoe Naylor. :D

same games different people. Looks like they just copied everything from the original series and had no new ideas. If this lasts the season i can't see it coming back next year.

I started watching The Einstein Factor & the news on Aunty as per normal & forgot all about Glads until about 7.20pm so didn't bother. Channel Seven might shoe an encore I suppose...
