There was much excitement in my household at the return of this favourite but despite trying my hardest to like it, it's pretty lame.
The main problem is the set - the place just isn't big enough, and it seems Sky have just tried to scrimp, and it is grossly detrimental. I mean for the Eliminator they had to go up the Pyramid to slide down - it just looked like they couldn't be bothered to put away the last event.
The women Gladiators are lame too - you can't tell the difference between them and the contestants. The male Gladiators are fucking ripped, but they don't have an ounce of charisma between them. Some guy called Oblivion tried to be the Wofl character but whilst Wolf seemed deranged, he just seemed like a guy giving aggro in a pub in a provincial town centre.
I do like falling off stuff into the swimming pool.
Also, at the end they don't swing through paper - they run from some blocks. It literally could not look shitter.
Also Kirsty Gallagher seems to have lost loads of weight and her boobs aren't as big any more.
Ian Wright is a tool
