Battlebots terug.

The battling robots are back! Twelve years after BattleBots ended its run on Comedy Central, ABC has picked up a reimagined take of the killer robot combat sport, from Whalerock Industries and the creators of the original BattleBots franchise, Ed Roski and Greg Munson. Former ABC topper Lloyd Braun executive produces the project, which has received a six-episode order to air this summer.

Like the original, the new series will feature homemade robots battling against each other in a single elimination tournament style format, until there is one champion. Of course, it will bring the franchise to 2015 with next generation robots – bigger, faster and stronger. The show also will have a greater emphasis on the design and build elements of each robot, the bot builder backstories, their intense pursuit of the championship and the spectacle of the event. There will be cash prizes for winners in the Championship Rounds.

Separate weight classes will be eliminated so that robots of all sizes will battle against each other. (In the original BattleBots tournaments, robots were divided into four categories: Lightweight – 60 pounds; Middleweight – 120 pounds; Heavyweight – 220 pounds and Superheavyweight – 340 pounds)

State of the Art Onboard Technology and Cameras will be used for combat analytics. MGM Television, which has a development deal with Whalerock Industries, will be distributing the program internationally. Executive Producers are Braun, Chris Cowan, Roski and Munson.

The BattleBots compeny launched robot competitions in 1999. That led to five semi-annual BattleBots tournaments, which were televised as a primetime series on Comedy Central. It premiered on 2000 and ran for five seasons.

Toch wel een goed gevoel om dit weer op tv te zien. Helaas moeten we om 3 uur snachts kijken willen we het live zien..

nieuwe reclame :



Ik las veel commetaar over de toeschouwers die een kaartje gekocht hadden. Alleen maar wachten / wachten ./ wachten en uiteindelijk 3 gevechten zien.

Op zaterdag was er een totaal van 7 gevechten schijnbaar voor een hele dag filmen. Jonno doet er 7 per uur.

Series 6 en 7 had er anders ook aardig wat vaart in. Met de bull pen's ging wisselen van gevechten ook snel.

Van de battlebots facebook pagina:
Too bad ABC was a terrible host for BATTLEBOTS. They took eight hours to film 7 fights, even loading bots in then removing them without a fight or explanation. I hope they can at least present the show in a way respectful to the builders and their teams, as the actual event was handled very poorly.
on Saturday they had tournament fights and grudge matches, 8 hours total for only 7 fights. Maximum of 21 minutes of fighting.
Dat is echt een slechte zaak, MMM en DRG scoren dan nog beter met minder robots.

voor zo ver ik lees komt het langen wachten door de vele interviews en andere zaken welke gefilmd werden, het is natuurlijk ook als hoofddoel een tv programma. Bij robotwars meen ik mij te herinneren dat er toch wel 4 gevechten per uur waren max. Maar afhankelijk van de gesprekken na de gevechten in de boot wel eens wat langer. ( de robots werden dan al wel door de crew uit de arena gehaald en de nieuwe stonden al weer klaar)

RW, en zeker de laatste paar series waren na genoeg live opnames welke ze later uitzonden. Dan wil je ook wel vaart maken.
En de USA... 't blijfen acteurs en amateurs...

ABC's montage technieken vallen niet tegen. Goede actiemomentjes. Kan niet wachten.
