Robot Wars: Grand Champions

Show Summary

3 2 1 Activate! Hosted by Joanie Laurer (formerly Chyna of the WWF), Robot Wars: Grand Champions brings back each episode six robots from previous series of Robot Wars to fight it out until only one is standing. It's flat out competition: no pit interviews or sidetalking, so each episode lasts only thirty minutes. Robot Wars: Grand Champions encded around the time that "the new TNN" became Spike TV. However, you can read up on what happened on the show here in this guide. Robot Wars: Grand Champions is based on the 4th Wars of UK Robot Wars tournament, with each 1-hour episode condensed to 30 minutes by cutting the following: - All interviews - Craig Charles's commentary - Announcements of minor awards (eg: best designed robot, best engineered robot) - Award ceremonies - Mini-games (eg: Robot Pinball, Sumo Basho, Robot Football) - Celebrity Special episode In addition, the following was changed: - Jonathan Pearce's commentary was replaced by Stefan Frank's speeches - Joanie Laurer appears between matches instead of Craig Charles - Units of measurement are converted from metric to imperial - Robots' strength and weaknesses replaced the notes from the UK version of the show (eg: Chaos 2's note of 'Cost 250 pound to build' is changed to 'Strengths: Unbeaten in Competition Weaknesses: Limited CO2 Supply') - The warning text 'BUILDING ROBOTS IS DANGEROUS AND SHOULD NOT BE DONE WITHOUT GREAT CARE', which also appeared in Robot Wars: Extreme Warriors and Robot Wars Extreme, was added.moreless
