Re: Challenge TV


I'm waiting for Challenge to re-broadcast the original UK Gladiators (which is currently on a break). As soon as the break is over, I want them to show Series 1 - 8, plus the specials and international series (including the 1st Springbok Challenge which was never repeated on Challenge). And if it's possible, I wish they could get the rights to the original Australian Gladiators series (which includes both Ashes series from the Australian's point of view).

Re: Challenge TV


Did Challenge have all the original series' of Gladiators? Whenever I used to watch it on Challenge with my Grandma (admittedly that was over ten years ago) it was ALWAYS the series with a bloke called Two Scoops in it. Over and over again. LOL, still makes me laugh thinking about that as we always made jokes about it. Actually I've got loads of memories of watching Challenge with my Grandma, she always had it on emoticon

And her impressions of Melinda on Fort Boyard every week. "You're doing really really well". ROFL. You had to be there.

I remember that guy, he was awesome. I think he was from the US, so you probably watched International Gladiators.

Re: Challenge TV


There's currently no word on whether Challenge will repeat the original ITV version of Gladiators again. I think they should.

However, the Sky1 version is getting repeated again from the early hours of Sunday morning at 3:55am in a double bill. Very silly time, isn't it? Didn't like the Sky1 version anyway.

Re: Challenge TV


I suppose it must cost them nothing to broadcast as it's owned by Sky, so they use stuff they own to fill overnights instead of wasting money. Same with all those old Flextech show they play in the night.

Actually they've just replied to someone on Facebook about Gladiators:

Hi Terry - we don't have the classic series of Gladiators or American Gladiators in License at the moment. We do have 2 series of the newer Sky 1 Gladiators which we will be showing late night towards the end of March.

So that's that question answered - they won't be showing it again.

Challenge had picked the best time to do this! *sarcasm*
And this year marks the 20th Anniversary of the UK Gladiators!

Re: Challenge TV


It's a complete and utter shame that Challenge aren't going to show the original ITV version of Gladiators again, especially when it's the 20th anniversary of the show in October.

I'm kinda surprised they're not showing American Gladiators either. Wasn't it shown on Sky1 back in 2008 and 2009? I think it would be good if Challenge could acquire it. Since Hulk Hogan (who's currently associated with TNA) hosted the show, it would work.

Yeah, it was also in the roster when Sky Atlantic started.

They've just advertised Takeshi on their Facebook page with a picture. Amazing. This is a good sign emoticon
