Maybe if sky1 stopped showing endless repeats of road wars and other shows like it and had extensively promoted gladiators then it may have been more of a success

It annoys me that the new version of gladiators has been cancelled the official reason for the cancellation is due to declining numbers in viewers

There is one thing i won't miss about gladiators and that is some of the new gladiators that were added in series 2 particularly doom goliath and warrior

there is a campaign to save the show there is a link to the official site in the above link

The idiots at sky1 are so :cen:dumb scrap the endless repeats of shows that are several years old and save something new

No offence but I thought Gladiators was awful. Can't believe they brought it back.

i thought it got old quickly, i'm not surprised it got axed, the gladiators' acting was embarrassing!

It was novel and fun when it first came about, but it's gone stale now tbh. Wipeout is better. :)

Mmm. I think it would have been better just bringing it back for a like a celebration of the original series- not a whole full length series. i watched a few, but it got boring.

The original was on TV when I was young, I used to love it. I didnt even bother with it this time around. It just seems like a lame way to spend the little amount of time I do spend infront of the TV.
