BBC Axe Robot Wars BBC Axe Robot Wars

In yet another demonstration of just why the BBC is struggling to attract viewers who aren’t interested in property or dance programmes the corporation, no doubt as a result of some internal dick measuring contest, has decided to scrap the immensely popular Robot Wars reboot after 3 series to make way for “new shows”.

Welcome to the grand final of Robot Wars for 2017 and my god was that a phenomenal episode as we saw fight after fight of epic proportions.

Robot Wars 2017 Part Deux: Boy Wonder Robot Wars 2017 Part Deux: Boy Wonder

Welcome back to Robot Wars after a two week absence due to tennis and to be honest most of this heat wasn’t worth the wait.

Robot Wars 2017 Part Deux: Go Nuts Robot Wars 2017 Part Deux: Go Nuts

Welcome back to Robot Wars where today a combination of luck, mechanical failure, and sheer genius the joke robot of the revival managed to somehow win the heat.

Robot Wars 2017 Part Deux: Crushed Egos  Robot Wars 2017 Part Deux: Crushed Egos 

Welcome back to Robot Wars and this week a well known egotist on the show once again went out a failure.

Robot Wars 2017 Part Deux: Crossed Wires Robot Wars 2017 Part Deux: Crossed Wires

Today Robot Wars justified just why the new rule change is so beneficial when a pain in the arse returned and went straight out.

Robot Wars 2017 Part Deux: The Kids Are More Than Alright Robot Wars 2017 Part Deux: The Kids Are More Than Alright

Today Robot Wars returned for its third rebooted series and it was a mixed bag overall. While all of the robots feel far better quality than previously the arena is in its worst state yet.

Robot Wars 2017: Cut Corners Abound Robot Wars 2017: Cut Corners Abound

Today on Robot Wars we saw the ending of the current series in what can only be described as pure carnage as robot after robot tore was torn apart.

Robot Wars 2017: Clash of the Titans Robot Wars 2017: Clash of the Titans

Back again for more robot on robot action and today we finally see crowd favourites Carbide and Apollo meet again. Outside of this the episode also saw a couple of more experimental designs, including another splitter robot that for once actually worked.

Robot Wars 2017: Now We're Getting Somewhere Robot Wars 2017: Now We're Getting Somewhere

Welcome back to Robot Wars and tonight’s episode was actually pretty damn good.

Robot Wars 2017: Amateur Hour Returns Robot Wars 2017: Amateur Hour Returns

Well this is two days late again but this time it’s not because I forgot but rather that after the shitshow that was the last episode I had given up on the show. I decided to watch it again today however and thankfully despite starting out questionably the episode became rather good.

Robot Wars 2017: Robots Rated in Ascending Order on Control, Aggression, Damage, and How Cute The Children Are Robot Wars 2017: Robots Rated in Ascending Order on Control, Aggression, Damage, and How Cute The Children Are

So here we are again with the Robot Wars and this week what was a hopeful episode to begin with ended with one of the shortest finales ever seen due to probably the worst judging calls I’ve ever seen.

Robot Wars 2017: A Steaming Pile of Scrap Robot Wars 2017: A Steaming Pile of Scrap

Well here we are again with series 2 of the reborn Robot Wars and you may have noticed this is two days late as unfortunately I didn’t realise that the new series was even airing and, to be honest, if the rest of the series was like that episode then I can see why the BBC didn’t promote it that much because in one…

Robot Wars 2016: Houston We Have A Problem Robot Wars 2016: Houston We Have A Problem

So the series has ended and what a series of ups and downs it was. Tonight six robots entered; the previous winners Carbide, Shockwave, TR2, Apollo, and Pulsar, along with wildcard entry Thor who the judges chose as the best runner-up.

Robot Wars 2016: Are You Compensating For Something? Robot Wars 2016: Are You Compensating For Something?

So here we are after the final heat of Robot Wars 2016 and what an utter load of rubbish the episode largely was, with most of the fights ended due to mechanical problems than anything else.

Robot Wars 2016: Blow Your House Down Robot Wars 2016: Blow Your House Down

On Robot Wars tonight not only did we see a bunch of robots slug it out but a contestant finally having the balls to deliberately take on the House Robots and beat them.

Robot Wars 2016: Not The Sharpest Tools In The Shed Robot Wars 2016: Not The Sharpest Tools In The Shed

Another week, another episode of Robot Wars, and my word did we see some weird robots this week. Straight of the bat was the students from Falkirk who built Overdoser, a robot built out of MDF. No prizes guessing how their campaign ended.

Robot Wars 2016: Heavy Lifting Robot Wars 2016: Heavy Lifting

Here we are with episode two of the rebooted series and while still getting better and better it was still a mixed bag affair. Once again there were 8 competitors quickly worked down to a notable four.

Robot Wars 2016: The Fall of The Old Gods Robot Wars 2016: The Fall of The Old Gods

Robot Wars, the cult British TV show that alongside Scrapheap Challenge encapsulated the ‘man and his shed’ amateur engineering spirit, returned tonight in a much anticipated reboot and unlike Top Gear it didn’t disappoint.
