American Gladiators

ESPN Classics is running episodes of American Gladiators. Lots of old shows I used to enjoy don't seem to hold up on current viewings, but this is not true with A.G. This show is a television classic. What we have are muscle-bound men and women battling with athletic contestants in a test of skill and strength as displayed in various competitions. There were so many great games that the final contest, The Eliminator, was almost a walk in the park. There were awesome events like The Joust, Human Cannonball, Hang Tough...

...Assault...



and The Maze



Great show. I'd buy it on DVD. There was also a Nintendo game which I am surprised I never even played, and I have a feeling I need to correct that.
