Anyone else remember Battlebots? Long before Sasuke, Battlebots was the show I watched religiously on Comedy Central every single week. Unfortunately, the show got cancelled in 2002 and ever since then there have been rumors of show making a return. Now, 13 years later, Battlebots is finally back and it's on ABC!
I was honestly worried that they would over modernize it and turn the show into more of a reality show. But after watching the first episode, I can honestly say that they're doing it right. They kept the focus on the robots and their creators without any pointless drama. Also, Alison Haislip is a sideline reporter for the show. By the time the episode was over, I felt like a kid all over again. Battlebots is back! And I couldn't be happier.
So if you haven't seen the show yet, watch it. It's great.

Yeah I saw the first episode on sunday, I was worried they'd change too much but no it feels like the original just with more modern technology, which is a great thing because those were some badass robot fights they had
The robot in the thumbnail looks a lot like Razer from Robot Wars Apart from that it'd blocked in the UK so I can't see any of the others :l

We had a show here in the UK very similar to Battlebots called Robot Wars. It was the BEST SHOW EVER!!! When they cancelled it in 2004 it was like the saddest day of my life.
They aired that over in the states as well. I forget why since it's been so long but there was some reason I preferred Battlebots though (And no it wasn't because one was from the UK, don't try to spin this against me )

Just going to say this while I still have a chance to make predictions, the episode is starting as I'm posting this and looking at the bracket, I'm predicting Bronco will beat Tombstone and Ghost Raptor/Bite Force might be hard to call but based on how they customize their bot and with the driving skills they've shown I want to give the advantage to Ghost Raptor
I do not have a prediction for the winner but I predict it will be one hell of a match
EDIT: Of course you know I may be wrong lol EDIT2: That moment when both predictions were wrong lol

You know, I really enjoyed the episode, at the same time I'm wondering how some of these bots got into the competition, things like Chomp that couldn't stay up on its own or Beta which looks rather unstable itself probably won't last long in this competition, Minotaur is probably going to get rekt when it faces a flipper bot probably, also despite the aesthetic upgrades Warhead looks LESS dangerous this year and is probably going to face the same problem it had last year since unless that new dragon head thing is enough to flip itself over
