Robot Wars Legacy: Controversial Battles! The Series.


The Thousand Scar's Muse

I said I’d keep to the new rota didn’t I? This is a new part covering the original Robot Wars show. My last two articles reviewing the original series were received rather well, and because it seems people love debate and drama, I figured I’d keep that going. This will be part of a series where I’ll go through the more questionable Judges Decisions in the original run of Robot Wars, and view what made them so controversial. I’ll also give my viewpoint on the battle as I remember it, and wonder who I think deserved the win. It’s a trip down memory lane, but many are still talked about to this day.

Introduction

Firstly, a bit of background information for those who didn’t watch much of RW. Often, robotic combat ends without either side being able to knock each other out. Whenever a battle ended with no clear winner, a…

Greatest Moments in Battlebots History: Son of Whyachi vs. Biohazard


SOW might have done better with a fully-charged battery in Season 5.0

The Unapologetic Nerd

We love a good underdog story and honestly, who doesn’t??  There was a plethora of 90’s sports and kid films that just milked this trope repeatedly.  I think by far though the best film that pulled off the underdog story is Rocky.  Can I get a hell yeah on that one folks?

Anyways, what’s better than an underdog in film is one in real life which brings us to today’s article, Battlebots.  Now, I already talked about Battlebots last year where I critically analyzed how well it held up (hint: not very) but with the recent revival of the series (yay!)
