“We had eight paramedics on site and a lot of paperwork. Please do not try this at home, unless you have made the same arrangements.” It’s not often an entertainment show opens with this sort of warning flashing up on screen before the presenters have even been introduced, but Revolution isn’t for the faint-hearted.
The Ninja Warrior-style show sees 50 fearless BMX bikers, rollerbladers and skateboarders taking on terrifying stunts and challenges (they have ominous names like The Cull and The Reckoning) to see ultimately which street sport is the best. The premise might be a bit fluffy, but the spectacle is anything but. It’s just as well those paramedics are on hand – actual blood gets spilt on the course.
Steve-O and Maya Jama present an entertainment show in which inline skaters, BMXers and skateboarders go head-to-head in a series of rounds that include high-speed races, an obstacle course and a high jump competition. Jordan Banjo has all the trackside gossip and Tim Warwood and CK Flash provide the commentary.
