It didn't have the comedy or thunder of "Battlebots", but this show was
still okay to watch. For this show, there was an arena full of vast
obstacles, including fire, a pit, a spinning disk and over-sized
household appliances. Plus, there were the "house-bots" to offer a
little more competition, the toughest being Sir KillaLot. I like all
that stuff. The show was an hour long, so there's a lot of time to fill
between matches. That's okay cuz there's Mick Foley as the psycho host
who sometimes goofs on the teams, especially the Clown team. There are
also interviewer-babes Rebecca Grant and Carol Grow, so no dead air
time there. As for the matches, they're never boring, but they needed
to get new 'bots every show, and not recycle so much.
Again, not nearly as funny or slam-bang as "Battlebots", but acceptable solely for it's cast and props.
When Robot Wars used to air it on TNN (now Spike), like 9:00pm
Saturday. I really like this version of Robot Wars (both US and UK). It
was titled Robot Wars Extreme Warriors, an American adaption to the
original British TV series. It was hosted by WWE wrestler Mick Foley.
the pit hostesses were Rebecca Grant (Series 1) and Carol Grow (Series
2) and announced by Stefan Ashton Frank. The first episode I watched
when I became very surprised by the show, was the House Robot
Rebellion, with Tricerabot, Tut Tut, Rosie the Riveter, The Green
House, Green Mouse, Close Enough, Rot Box, and Silver Box. I haven't
watched this show in years! (not in middle school or even the freshman
years in high school) But when I watched the videos on YouTube, it
brought back my memories from that show. I can know some of robots that
were in the show:
Rippa Raptor, Sobek, The Revolutionist, Panzer Mk 2, Falcon, Joker, Run Away, General Chompsalot, Conquering Clown, Red Virus, Texas Tornado, Trackzilla, Unibite, Drillzilla, Tiger Cat, Mad Cow Bot, Manta, $6 Million Dollar Mouse, Propeller Head, Psycho Chicken, Trilobyte, Brute, Tut Tut, Spike, etc.
Robot Wars (UK and US) is one of my favorite TV shows of all time. (right up there with Beyblade and Battlebots).
I will review the UK version of Robot Wars soon.
Robot Wars: Extreme Warriors gets 9 stars.
