Bite me, Hicks. You were able to be smug, now you're dead, so just SHUT UP.

So I was about to join the "Man, I remember watching this in high school" brigade, when someone posted that it first aired in 1989.

In 1989, I was a Junior...in college.

Sweet Lordy Jesus, that's depressing. I was watching American Gladiators in college.

Why do I remember being so cool, when apparently I was a complete dipstick? I'm gonna just go ahead and decide to remember that I was just watching for the chicks.

Ninja Warrior/Sasuke/Kunoichi = WIN
American Gladiators (original) = WIN
American Gladiators (new) = Depends on if they can capture the cheesy fun of the first series.

Weigard: Nobody will be a dominating as Wesley "Two Scoops" Berry was back in the day.

They could get him out of jail and see how he'd do now.

glwtta: Holy shiat, Gina Carano is going to be in this thing?

Now I'm gonna have to watch this crap...


Not having watched MMA fighting, I just googled some vids of her fighting.

Holy shiat. I'm suddenly a fan of women's MMA. Goddamn, why isn't that crap on prime-time? And yes, she kicks ass.

American Gladiators is completely straight compared to those ultimate fighting shows. Every time I dial past them it's always 2 guys humping each other in the missionary position.

Reasonable tone.
No personal attacks.

What the hell are you doing here?


Whoa... sorry.

mrtursiops: American Gladiators is completely straight compared to those ultimate fighting shows. Every time I dial past them it's always 2 guys humping each other in the missionary position.

Indeed, in terms of gayness of the actual events.

Football < American Gladiators < Wrestling < Submission-fighting

Of course, that's until you notice how glammed up the outfits are on the gladiators. Then the gladiator gayness goes through the roof (ditto the tight fans on American football players).

dwelling: My point is that one could consider NW to be inspired from shows such as AG, but the two are very dissimilar. AG is very gimmicky, but NW... those guys are frikken' incredible.

How is one more "gimmicky" than the other?

Look at the contestants in NW. Having trannies and fat sumo wrestlers compete isn't gimmicky?

The obstacles are just as gimmicky, but in the case of AG they throw in a human part of the "obstacles".

I liked the old AG, I really like NW, and yes there are a lot of differences, but I think the them of having regular joes compete in something very demanding that most regular people can;t do makes them a lot more similiar than they are different.

This: Football < American Gladiators < Wrestling < Submission-fighting

The best part is submission fighters could beat the shiat and kill anyone less gay than them.

American footballers especially.

TenaciousDMZ: I agree, after listening to Bill Hicks' schtick, he really was an asshole. And a pretty petty one too. Not really that funny either.

yes, he was an asshole, yes, he could be petty at times. but part of his appeal for a lot of people was that he wasnt trying to please anyone. if you were a fan of his, thats fine, but it didnt really matter to him one way or the other. he didn't try to pander to people to win fans. and as far as being funny, well, thats subjective, but its pretty clear that he wasnt trying to just be funny 100% of the time. he went on stage to say what he had to say and if he made fans and got people to laugh, that was great and all but it was pretty much a by-product. but if you or anyone else doesnt like him, thats good too. different strokes and all that. hicks was a little different than your typical comedian down at the giggle barn, though.

/huge fan of hicks, and ill probably go out of my way to catch AG on sunday

I don't care what any of you say, they'd eat the hell out of this in Europe and Japan. We're just too "wussified" "self-righteous" "civilized" to get any enjoyment out of it here in America.

No argument from me. I'm perfectly willing to admit that submission fighters are pefectly capable of defeating and killing me through their use of crushing my face in their crotch while they hump the mat.

People forget how hardcore Ultimate Fighting is.

These guys aren't here to run around like a kid.

These guys aren't here to try and toss a ball in a hole.

These guys aren't here to be fat and just block people.

These guys aren't here to throw balls back and forth.

These guys aren't here to skate around on ice.

These guys punch you in the face, elbow you in the face, kick you in the ribs, and try to hurt you until you can't go on anymore.

Football, Baseball, Soccer, Hockey. They all have penalties. Hence, they are dog shiat.

We're all well aware of how hardcore Ultimate Fighting is. We damned well know that, being no-rules (other than anything that would permanently injure or kill your opponent) that it is the platform for the greatest non-lethal hand-to-hand combat in the world.

But it still looks damned ghey.

Ultimate Fighting has no rules.

Ultimate Fighting Championships does.

I trained under MMA.

We were allowed to straight up kick the opponent in the balls.

*insert about twenty-five or so other G.L.O.W. women here*

...and I wanted to Mount Fiji. Giggity, giggity, giggity.

Dirtball: Millzners:

Explain to me how taking a gay porn star and putting him in a leotard so he can wrestle another guy for your viewing pleasure ISN'T homo-erotic.

You've never seen the original show have you? You are just judging this on your preconceived notions of what you THINK it is.

There's is no wrestling here. None. Nice of you to have an opinion on something you have never seen, you're like the GOP on video games.


Uh huh. I often forget, as a conservative, that I hate free speech, especially graphic video games. It takes a real winner like you to remind me. Congrats on doing the same bullshiat you accuse someone else of.

EPIC FAIL

Allen. The end.: Thank you Poonesfarm! THis shiz is retarded beyond belief. It was farking stupid the first time around, and it's stupid now. Super-patriot homosexuals beat each other in sweaty pit for hillbillies drunken amusement.

THERE YOU GO.



I'm going to assume from your handle that you are either a Sucke....er...Buckeye or an alum (or, perhaps, a drop out?). How are you gonna feel when your team goes 0-9 against SEC schools when LSU dominates OSU on Monday?

Take your hyper-aggressive monkey like attitude and go get a job as an American Gladiator. Then the rest of us can make fun of you for being stupid. With any luck, you might get a chance to star in gay porn flick! I hear AG is kind of like a job interview for those positions (pun intended!).

Malibu said something like being "220 pounds of twisted steel and sex appeal". He proceeded to lose.

Wonder how many people would sign up to compete in lethal bloodsport. People on the fringe with no ties, given the opportunity to be glorified. This can be the primer before horrific genetic experiments and alien invasion ready us for Mutant League sports. And necromancy. We can't forget about Bones Jackson.
