Bots FTW
11 May 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Can't beat old school bashing, although I never seen Bill Nye on the show... According to their official site, they are coming back on TV though, so that is something I will have to catch when it comes on. The show had some interesting bots and kept things simple, which is why the show was awesome. Not sure why Comedy Central stopped airing it though...

Also, concerning TheUnholyArmpit's post...

Robot Wars was started in the US, not in the UK... You should REALLY do some research next time. Try robotcombat.com's history section, or head to Marc Thorpe's homepage (the man who may as well be called the father of robot fighting).
