After only 3 episodes I am completely addicted to the latest incarnation of American Gladiators, and my fave absolutely has to be Hellga.
How can you not love this hulking (6'1" 205 lbs) Valykrie that can crush your puny head and is just a hoot to watch. If you haven't seen it yet, check out the video for a Gladiator first.
I have been really impressed with the competitors, and our Soccer mom from last night impressed the hell out of me, pulling in the fastest time to date and kicking some Gladiator butt. The new challenges are fun, the competition has been pretty fierce (already 2 competitors eliminated due to injuries) and the show is finding it's beat. They have already been picked up for a second season and this looks like a remake that worked for NBC.
Now if we could just get some of the Gladiators to shut up it would be even better... somethings are better seen and not heard.
