You get tv shows and then generic franchising of them around the world. Not another f#4king season of Big Brother..

On the subject of franchising TV shows, does anybody know why gladiators has returned to several countries all of a sudden?

It seems to happen quite often.
 
2008-04-21 11:52:48 AM
Dark_Badger, you forgot American Beauty and American Psycho, but you said American Gladiators twice so u r dum.

As many as we can until we run out, then we'll pillage other countries for ideas and rename them.

A general lack of talent and creativity in the TV biz?

Nice.... and well spotted.

Do you feel good in pointing out the shortcomings of others? Does it make you feel big and strong, like a manly man, from mansville?

Good.

I'm glad I was able to assist you, you steaming hunk of man.

And this is precisely the reason that Japanese are maintaining the critical Game Show Gap with the west. While we're over here hindering the ingenuity of our game show technicians with petty rules and restrictions, they understand that sometimes, in order to entertain people when there's nothing good on television, you've got to cripple some contestants.

It's sort of like the Russian space program, but with way more nut-shots.

"Go back to bed, America, your government has figured out how it all transpired. Go back to bed America, your government is in control. Here, here's American Gladiators. Watch this, shut up, go back to bed America, here is American Gladiators, here is 56 channels of it! Watch these pituitary retards bang their farking skulls together and congratulate you on the living in the land of freedom. Here you go America - you are free to do what well tell you! You are free to do what we tell you!"

Probably not, in Britain. Other places, besides America, do exist; and have their own shows,too.
