From Harold Pinter’s The Homecoming to Joe Orton’s What The Butler Saw, the English have a long, storied tradition of pushing the culture forward with their penchant for hypnotic lyricism, sly subversion, and acerbic wit, but none of that’s important right now.

Anyone looking for an antidote to prestige TV should check out Bromans, a new show out of the UK that throws a bunch of muscly British dudes to the lions, forcing them into all sorts of sadistic scenarios that wouldn’t have been out of place in ancient Rome. You know, this sort of thing:
Here’s how ITV describes the show in their press release:
They may have the muscles but do these lads have what it takes to go down in history? Cameras will follow eight modern day couples as they’re transported to an ancient world where they’ll live and fight like gladiators did 2000 years ago.
Along the way there’ll be blood, sweat and tears. However, only the very best will make it through to the Emperor’s Games where one of them will emerge victorious and take home the Emperor’s gold (which today works out at ‘approximately’ £10,000!).
Advance praise for Bromans is already hitting a fever pitch:
More steroid abusing simpletons with no morals surrounded by shallow fake bimbos courtesy of ITV coming…called #Bromans – please die.

Just saw an ad for a TV show called "Bromans" with the tagline "modern geezers in the time of Caesar" so we're done as a civilization.

I've just seen a TV advert for a show called 'Bromans'. Like this year hasn't been bad enough.

In advance of Bromans‘ September 14th premiere, we thought you’d like to get acquainted with some standout members of the hyper-jacked cast before they all drown in a pool of their own testosterone. Have at it:

No half measures… thats the motto. Be obsessive. When you train, train hard When you diet, diet properly When you make your money, hustle your ass off! And when you relax with your family or friends, let your hair down and savour every minute of it. Too many of us are focused on doing too much, not very well – Focus on the now, and remember to enjoy every aspect of life Credit to Freddydahar on photography #mondaymotivation #positivity #positivevibes #monday #obsessive #fitnessinspiration #fitness #fitnessvloggers #lifestyle #instagood #gains #calvinklein #ck #fitnessmodel #model #shoot #hustle #hustlehard #grind #diet #work #friends #family #fitspo #fitfam #inspirationalquotes #inspiration
I would like for them to have maybe 75% less tattoos…but I’ll probably shame watch…at least a couple episodes.
PRINCE OF SNARKNESS aka DIVKID
Cor’blimey donnit make’ya proud to come from ol’ Blighty! Salute
I’m ready for the apocalypse anytime.
Spartacus on Starz was better gladiator porn and they could show dicks.
I wholeheartedly concur.
Play gay gladiators unafraid to mix it up with each other!
I won’t be watching since I am on the wrong side of the pond. Still, with “reality TV” there’s always hope for a moment of truth, a random act of kindness, a glimmer of humanity. But that was “Celebrity Fit Club,” when Jay was there for Shar when she was at her limits. This show? I wouldn’t count on it.
isn’t that david mcintosh in the first clip
I would help for the massage before and after the fights.
A LOT less ink please The Real roman legions had a tattoo to ID them but not all the ghetto that the guys have now . And be nice to see some natural body hair I call the guys like this see Tarzan hear Jane (EG)
