It's really fun to watch stuff get torn apart
18 July 2001 | by (Bradford, Ma.) – See all my reviews

I mean it. Robots getting torn to pieces has some serious "wow factor" as well as being good for laughs. Heck, I laughed as Ziggo tore through one of those Scrap Daddy 'bots. There wasn't anything left of that 'bot after that! One match I'll never forget was between Spaz and Buddy Lee. Bil Dwyer really wanted Buddy Lee to lose. All I remember hearing throughout that whole fight wasn't any commentary, rather screams of "Get the dogs! Get those stupid dogs! Hit that STUPID DOLL!" etc. I don't know why, but I laughed the whole fight.

I do miss Sean Salisbury though. He played the straight man well to Bil. The new guy has yet to prove himself to me. But, there's only been 2 shows prior to the date of this posting. Who knows? Maybe I'll eventually like him too.

It's fun to watch just how creative these bot builders can be. This competition is growing quite a bit in popularity. As it does, more and more robots are about to be displayed. I noticed that this season, the crew has actually shown some more fights than in the past. The show is now an hour's length, for starters. Also, in addition to showing whole fights, they also recap some previous battles that did not make it to television for a full fight airing. At least this gives the audience a chance to see more sparks flying.

Hey, what else can I say? It's fun to watch. Enjoy it!

Oh yeah, and go Ziggo! :)
