Default Battlebots coming back

Saw where ABC is running 6 new episodes of the old Battlebots tv show starting June 21

Always was a lot of fun to watch and with todays technology should be even better

Excellent! I just hope ABC doesn't screw it up like major networks tend to do.

Bump for this.

I'm liking these episodes a ton.

Very interesting and how they absolutely (try to) destroy each other is great.

...and that lady commentator doesn't hurt either.

I watched the first new episode and the battles were good. But sitting through 25 minutes of hype, commercials and B.S. for two matches totaling less than 5 minutes of action wasn't worth it.

Not that I do not agree with you BUT Got to MAKE $$$$$, name of the game

I have noticed that as some of these "reality" shows become more popular that is a LOT more commercials and less actual action/footage of the show

DVR is YOUR FRIEND, watched last nights final episode in about 20-25 minutes , in fact that is the way I watch MOST of my actual tv shows now

Love it and watched the new episodes...good entertainment. Would love to see more contestants, though, but guess it is a pretty limited field of "enthusiasts."
