The writers strike has caused me to hit an all time low in my TV viewing standards. No, I'm not watching "Lipstick Jungle," even I have some standards, but I have been watching the "American Gladiators." My heart actually skipped a beat when I heard that "AG" was coming back. Jim and I used to spend a lazy afternoon on the weekend watching "AG" when it was on the air years ago. We loved to watch the Contenders get beat senseless by those oversized Gladiators. It was good family fun. Now that it is back on the air it is the same craziness that we loved before, only better because now we can sit around cringing with the girls as Contenders get their brains and bodies bashed in by the abnormally large Gladiators (and cheer when the little guy beats the big guy). If you didn't watch the first round, you really should check out the second season........because there is nothing better than watching a 6'2" 300 pound mound of muscle toss a 5'8" 155 pound man around like a rag doll.
