I don’t know how it was for you, but at the time I thought Robot Wars to be one of the coolest TV shows ever. I think this show may have in fact played a significant role in my current choice of hobby 😉
Aaaaand, the BBC is going to bring it back! New and improved! Super awesome!
UPDATE: Actually, this BBC article is quite boring. Better check out The Guardian instead (turns out, adding backstory & pictures do make things more interesting).
