Some of my fondest memories as a kid was pretending to be on American Gladiators with my sister. We would get pillows and stand on chairs trying to knock each other off. Looking back on that now I’m very surprised we didn’t break something.
There was an attempt to bring it back a few years ago and it didn’t go to well but this time might be different. A very familiar name may be producing it. Seth Rogan may be coming on as an executive producer with the original co-creator John Ferraro.
It lasted for 6 years in the early 90’s and with the boom of reality television since then this could be the perfect time to revive it. I’m pretty excited about this actually and I’m not usually a fan of reboots. With the success of shows like American Ninja Warrior I think that this will be successful if it’s updated and done correctly. First thing to get rid of? The unitard. Let it go!
Here is a little taste to remind you of what you have been missing.
