In the early 90s, before we all had pocket computers with instant access to as much pornography as we liked, there was one reliable Saturday afternoon source of slow-motion boobs and bums and OH GOD IT'S HASSELHOFF MY EYES!

"Tonight Matthew, I'm going to be..." embarrassing myself on national TV.

It's part 2 of our "classic" Saturday night light entertainment lineup, as we watch Stars In Their Eyes; the show where ordinary members of the public walked into some smoke as themselves, and came out as their favourite singers. There is no possible way that could backfire on them 25 years later.

"Do you feel the power... of the Gladiators?
Do you have the will... and the skill?"

This week we watch Gladiators, a show that combined all the pantomime of British wrestling with all the sporting achievement of British wrestling.

Saturday evening TV never got better than this. A sad indictment of Saturday evening TV.
