What Did You Think of the Return of Robot Wars?

By Aatif Sulleyman on at

12 years after the last episode aired, Robot Wars made its highly anticipated return to television yesterday evening, sending many of us into a frenzy of nostalgia-drenched excitement.

The opening show in the new series was a blend of familiar and fresh, introducing new competitors alongside a number of recognisable faces (and machines), but did it live up to the hype?

Dara and Angela are certainly likeable enough, but how much did you miss Craig Charles’ over-the-top ridiculousness? Was Nuts a breath of fresh air or was the bonkers bot a waste of time in the ring? Were you annoyed about the pronunciation of ‘Behemoth’?

And what about the judges and interview segments? Would you have preferred the show to have gone heavier on slo-mo money shots or did they strike the right balance between carnage and conversation?

Let us know what you thought about everything in the comments below. Oh, and don’t forget to dissect the robots themselves. I’m still shedding tears for Razer.
