I was disapointed that in the new eliminator they don't have the three different "doors" with the gladiators hiding behind them that you have to bust throught to finish.Originally posted by: purbeast0
i finally got around to watching it last night and i enjoyed it. the way some of them screw up on the travelator makes me wonder if the whole thing is staged (atlast who wins and who doesnt). also them seemed to make it a lot more dramatic than it needs to be. you can't even hear the clinking of the rings on hang tough because they have some metal music playing in the background.
i also think these competitors are pussies compared to the guys in the old show. i remember on the old show when the guys did the handbike, most of them just flew by it. these guys look like they have no clue how to do it and struggle the whole way accross. and the travelator just seems ridiculous. the treadmill looks to be going slower than the one on the old show, AND it has a rope, but I must admit its longer than the one in the old show.
i dunno i think it's entertaining but way too dramatic, and i'm still not convinced that the final outcome is not staged.
Foam blocks? BOOOO! I want to see somebody get pancaked against the plexiglass.
