Don Michael Paul,
Remote controlled robots fight to the death in a lexan-enclosed arena. Teams of robot builders come from all over the world with their creations to compete in head-to-head combat in four weight categories (Lightweight, Middleweight, Heavyweight and Superheavyweight).Written by
The problem with most of the robots on this show is that the builders work too long on armoring them up and then forget to give them a decent weapon. The battles usually either are 2 seconds long, consisting of one robot pulverizing the other with the first hit or they last forever with the robots just slamming into each other to no avail. I could see a future for the sport if they put stricter guidelines on the robots people submitted. As it is, there's a few which are basically Radio Shack remote control cars with a head welded on top. The show also needs to be longer than it is, only 1/2 an hour with 3 fights. Much more time is spent gearing up for the fight which could last as little as 5 seconds long. One thing I don't understand though... why was this show put on Comedy Central, of all networks?
