  1. Billy, the episode of Ramsey’s that they showed on Tuesday night (not sure of last nights episode cause i didnt watch it) is actually from the most recent season in the UK which i believe aired at the end of last year….. It wasnt a 2005 episode.

    I actually prefer the UK version of the show.

  2. another amazing result for Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares…I thought it might die a bit when Channel 9 ran out of USA based episodes but it keeps going from strength to strength even with the current UK episodes they have dug up from 2005. By the looks of it there are plenty of episodes from 2004-2007 in the UK series to drag out before his new series ‘Hell’s Kitchen’ starts. Train wreck TV at it’s best!

  3. I missed the premiere of Canal Road. I hope they decide to air an encore at some point. If they can do it for Power of 10 and My Kid’s a Star, surely they can do it for the one show I’m actually interested in watching on their network?

  4. Thanks so much for replying guys, and i’m sorry David I meant to write Sydney.

    Thanks Adrasteia, i’m glad she has some qualifications. At least now I’ll fast forward her just because she rambles inanity rather than ignorance.

    And in relation to the Travellator, its actually thinner and shorter than the original & the American Series. But I’ll stop going on about it now haha, i’m just glad other people have noticed. I’m still going to enjoy it because its Gladiators, and there are a few things we do here in Aus better than the Americans (it doesn’t feel as built up, the contestants are actually nice and don’t make stupid statements that seem fed to them by the producers, and the Gladiators here get to speak alot more), I just hope that they get a 2nd Series and return it back to that same sense of Arena TV if you know what mean?


  5. Luke (Lakeyboy)

    The reason the challengers get up the travelator during the eliminator more easily is because there is a much bigger gap between it and the end of the balance beam in the new series when compared to the small distance in the old series. They get a better run up, hence only 1 of 12 people so far not making it up in one go.

  6. Dakota: according to Wikipedia not only was Bonnie a professional dancer, but she choreographed a number of West End productions and even produced/directed verious theatre productions, including pantomimes.

    I know it’s a bit hard to imagine that the crazy woman screaming “You are strong! You are Demi!” actually is supposed to know what she’s talking about.

  7. LOL!

    I should have explained myself better… what I meant was that you can tell they have visibly shrunk the size of the games. I.e the wall is simply a straight up vertical wall now whereas in the old one it was massive and towards the end of it, it rose so they had to almost climb backwards. In the game where they had to run back and forth on the bridge avoiding the “tommy knocker”-like thingoes, now you can see there are no gaps between them and you can’t duck down, whereas the old version and the American versions, the bridge is much longer. Even Hang Tough isn’t as high as it used to be. I guess its just the change of Venue from Brisbane to melbourne? I’m not neccessarily complaining, just asking for curiosity sake in case anyone has an answer.


  8. Hey,

    Just 2 quick questions that i’ve been wondering about the last couple of Sunday nights.

    1) Has anyone else noticed how much smaller the Gladiator games look now compared to what they were in the old series? Do you think that it’ll go back to looking as great as it did back then now the series is rating well and may encourage some money to be put back into it?

    2) What exactly is the point of Bonnie Lythgoe on SYTHYCD-Aus? Is she a professional in some aspect of dance? I just find that I fast-forward through her Judging comments, but that when I don’t, she’s always criticising the girls and never the boys. Thanks for reading.
