battlebots after the break…

battlebots…

i sort of miss this show. first off, for those who don’t know – it was about remote-controlled robots battling each other. they battled each other by weight-class & most of them eventually evolved into some sort of offensive-weapon gimmick. some were “lifters,” who would try to flip a robot over, thereby winning. some were “bashers,” having a mallet or spike or whatever try to puncture the opposing robot. some were “spinners,” that spun really fast so that any attempt to even touch them would result in robo-carnage.

the show “battlebots” didn’t really last too long which was too bad because it was fun to watch & gave us a preview of two future “mythbuster” hosts (even though we obviously didn’t know it at the time).

you’d think a show like that would’ve found another sponsor or whatever but i guess it hasn’t. oh well. i’m sure there are still robot-battle competitions but they aren’t televised. in fact, all of the robot-related shows seem to have died off a few years ago. a pity.
