BattleBots

Show Summary

A televised exercise in applied destructive engineering in which competitors must construct fighting robots out of materials found from a junk-pile. After constructing their robots, the builders must send them into battle against each other to see who has created the superior war machine. It started in San Fransico, then went to Las Vegas for a while, then finally returning to an old army bunker in San Fransico, where the last tapings were held.

  • Fights were awesome!

    9.5
    This show was one of my favorites from my childhood! I always looked forward to new episodes and wished the show was either back on in reruns or out on DVD.
  • Yeah, smash things!

    People build machines. People use them to fight other machines.



    This is good.



    Battle Bots ran on U.S. television for a number of years in the 1990s. Millions of eager viewers hunkered down in front of their television sets to watch the battle matches, which were fairly similar to wrestling matches. Crews designed their robots and had them duel each other in an arena with a booby-trapped floor. The bots could break each other to bits, or they could push the opponent over a buzz saw in the ground. Parts went flying. When one robot could not move, or time ran out, the match was up. It was simple, it was exciting, it was funny. Battle Bots would make a great video game, and it should certainly get to be released on DVD. Here's hoping the public gets a chance to see this classic again.moreless
  • Hot metal on metal action!

    I really miss this wantan display of robot carnage.



    The show did go down hill when Carmen Elektra was on the screen more often than the bots.



    From what I hear there are bots fights all over the country yet its not on TV? What gives? With crap on like Flavor Flav and all the other reality TV shows, why is there no hard core robot smashing action on? Battlebots would be the perfect show for SPIKE TV - I always wondered why the producers never made a deal with them. I want to see bots smashing each other into piles of smoking junk and I want it NOW!moreless
  • Its robot fightin time!!!!!

    I love Battle Bots [I know Robert Larwance the guy that made Mechavore]. BB so kicks Robot Wars ass since there is just mindless destruction and Carmen Electra in slutty outfits. You are just amazed how much more destruction is in here [more than RW] I fondly rember Hazard dismembering several bots, Biohazards arm being ripped off by Mechavore and seeing Compas of Doom killed. But the main weak point [very evident in Season 5] is not enough ass kicking, to much of the builders backstorys and filler video... there were 500 robots why cant you show more of them?moreless
  • This realtity show of people building their own robots and battling them head to head, first aired on comedy central a couple years back. A show for family to watch. Safer for humans, since the robots are destroying each other rather than people.moreless

    Most unique , thrilling, interesting , non-boring, action-packed, reality show for family I've ever seen!! Should-never-have-been-taken off TV! My favorite robot of the series, Ziggo was the first to battle on the first aired episode of Battlebots. Ziggo had a very simple design shaped like a wrong side up bowl with blades coming from the sides. The robot would spin fast, like a lawnmower blade in one direction, tearing robots apart battle after battle! If this show is not returning own "Spike TV", it should be put on a box set for sure! It would sell, sell, sell!moreless
