I vividly remember the first time I saw it.  I found it a few episodes into their first season.  I was cruising through the channels when... wait, what?!  the fuck is this?.  I was instantly hooked.  I had inadvertently stumbled on Battlebots.   I watched it religiously from that point until I was forced to mourn it's passing.  It continued on in a diminished capacity here and there but it never really reclaimed it's initial glory.  Soon, even the youtube videos ended.

Until today that is.  Battlebots is officially  coming back bitches.  Gladiator robots will once again fight to the death in the plexiglass arena.  ABC is bringing it back for 6 episodes.  It's not much, but it's something.  Honestly, so many things have changed since this all began in 2000.  New materials, manufacturing processes, more energy from batteries, and the whole innovation explosion that is the maker movement.  It will be glorious...
