Review of BattleBots

Fridays, 8:00 PM ET on Discovery

120 minutes

“BattleBots” is a reimagined take of the killer robot combat sport from Whalerock Industries and the creators of the original “BattleBots” franchise, Ed Roski and Greg Munson. The homeade robots will battle against each other, in a single elimination tournament style format, until there is one champion. The six episode series features next generation robots – bigger, faster and stronger than ever before. The show will have a greater emphasis on the design and build elements of each robot, the bot builder backstories, their intense pursuit of the championship and the spectacle of the event. Separate weight classes will be eliminated so that robots of all sizes will battle against each other. State of the Art Onboard Technology and Cameras will provide audiences with enhanced viewing and combat analytics. There will be cash prizes for winners in the Championship Rounds.

What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

BattleBots is awesome: flying shrapnel, fiery explosions, the clank of metal on metal. The battles are fun, many of the builders have entertaining personalities and gimmicks, and there are always some really cool moments in an episode for enthusiasts of robotics, engineering and motorized mayhem. let's just hope the robots don't take revenge some day :D
