Awesome show until it was brought back from being canceled.
16 April 2010 | by emt4988See all my reviews

Hi everyone this is Jack Red, today I wanted to review one of my child hood shows Celebrity Death Match.

I love this show it had everything you could possibly want I mean you had a funny referee, awesome hosts and even Stone Cold appears on the show.

I still remembered when The Undertaker got into a match on the first Halloween episode they did that was entertaining.

Fandemonium I-IV were great episodes basically you vote on online what matches you wanted to see at the time.

They had Beavis vs. Butt Head of all things and my god that still today my personal favorite match why because I was a fan of theirs as a kid.

Referee Mills Lane in the first four seasons was voiced by the actual person now he at times made the show funny to watch like let's give it up oh I mean let's get it on classic.

Johnny and Nick were two of my favorite hosts of all the shows I shown to date.

Sadly it first got canceled in 2002 with a horrible game released a year after.

Out of no where it came back however instead of MTV it aired on MTV2 like that would make any differences.

To be completely honest I hate this version of the show sure it was two seasons lasted eight episodes each but come on what happen to the show I loved.

As bad as that game was I would rather play it then to watch this version ever again yes it is that bad.

Referee Mills Lane wasn't funny, Nick was made to look more like an idiot rather than being one at times where it's funny.

Of course I got to bring up Johnny sadly they were close with him but how could they screwed up on his hair color.

This version is supposed to be bloodier yet most of the matches suck really bad especially compared to the classic version which barely had a bad match up.

They even reused an idea used in the old one where the hosts fight each other but it never happen.

I like the original take on that idea which involves a time machine while the others involves Don Vito eating Tony Hawks which was pretty stupid.

I prefer the original clay used on the classic rather than the newer one which was lucky to make some celebrities that appeared on both closer to the actual person.

They remade Shaquille O'Neal vs. Kobe Bryant that was a good match into a match that's actually worst than Big Foot's match with Loch Ness Monster.

Everyone can agree that the most popular match of the show was Spice Girls vs. Hansons mainly because how it ended.

They did bring back the voting however it sucks especially with a match so stupid that being high seems like a good option I'm talking about Ashley Simpson versus her old nose what how can you make that a match.

Sadly it was a match with a vote from me because how poorly the options were on it.

I thought at first it would be like Nicolas Cage versus John Travolta match where they had each other's faces as well as theirs butts but nope that wasn't happening.

It was Ashley Simpson against a giant talking nose now how high do you have to believe to make that a match.

They also did an episode of Comedy though not as good as the ones done by Eric Fogel the creator of the show.

Oh that's right I haven't said the single worst thing about the new version of Celebrity Death Match yet that guy wasn't involved that's right why do you think it stinks so bad.

I thought they were bring in many more celebrities in the new one but most of them already had been on the show it's like there wasn't any creative involved.

They didn't do a single holiday episode which sucks because for those who remember the 4th of July episode that was awesome.

Rodney Dangerfield was in a match while he was still alive and in the new one they used the time machine to bring him back to fight since he's dead now.

R.I.P. Rodney Dangerfield I remembered from the original it had Marv Alberts who was on there very briefly then Stacy Cornbred who died on the show then finally Debbie Matenopoulos who was okay but not as good as Stacy.

Tally Wong was Debbie's permanent replacement that wasn't entertaining at all I mean even Marv Alberts was better now that's saying awtifully a lot right there.

Every now and then she says to Johnny oh what are you going to do bring back Stacy Cornbred what who honestly thinks that's funny because I sure don't I think it's pointless, stupid and a waste of my time.

In conclusion I can watch the first four seasons without any problems however avoid the last two seasons at all costs or you will regret it for the rest of your life.
