Not going to lie here, this season of Robot Wars rather snuck up on me, I found out that it was coming back on the day it aired so I had a lot of hype to cram in to a few hours, but it’s all good.
After last season was heavily advertised on the back of how awesome the rebuilt House Robots looked it must be said that their involvement in the autumn season was rather minimal, confined rather strictly to the corner patrol zones (CPZ) with no means of traversing between them. In the second season the producers included a narrow perimeter patrol zone in between the larger corner areas that meant the House team presented a much bigger threat. In addition, they’d be set free to do far more terrible things to immobilised fighters, sadly no longer the case, although it does make repair time a little easier on the builders. (more…)
