Hi everyone, and welcome back to the Beat! Last time out we saw dueling flippers with drastically different outcomes, as Hydra used gravity to break WAR Hawk into its separate components while Bronco debuted and got shredded by Bite Force. Plus we saw HyperShock decapitate Monsoon and Skorpios double-decapitate Sidewinder.
Welcome back to the Beat! Last time, Witch Doctor played American air hockey, Shatter! came down upon Wan Hoo's head, even if they didn't make sure they were dead, and Whiplash tanked Son of Whyachi enough to flip it over. This week we have a continuation of changing partners, many
First off, Louie Anderson is my Family Feud host if not just for this:
And he's still alive, which is both surprising and heartwarming.
Second off, welcome back to the Beat! Last time out, the floor winning became a meme, Tombstone slashed SawBlaze, and Nelly the Ellybot tasted the rainbow, motherfucker. This
Hello, and welcome back to the Beat! We are doing absolutely nothing special for the 4th of July, so there.
Last time out Rikki watched the fights so I didn't have to! Or get to. I'm still most of the episode down. Either way, he did a good job. Also Bite
Hi everyone, and welcome back to the Beat! Last time out, Tombstone clipped Lock-Jaw, HyperShock blazed by Valkyrie, and Cobalt made SubZero's team rage and regret swapping the fight. This time we've got the return of HUGE and a robot even bigger than it, a new Brazilian bot, the first
Hello there, and welcome back to the Beat, the second-funniest Thursday (normally) running BattleBots review column! This becomes a special two-parter because I realized, "Holy shit, if I just do the re: MARS stream it's still a 3500 word post," Also it was 3 AM because I was finally actually
Welcome back to the Beat! We're back for realsies this time, not just a preview but actual honest to goodness fighting. And for this premiere we've got way too much work for me to do—it's so big we're going to split it into two parts. So let's just get to
Hi there, lizard people. It's been a while, hasn't it? But the summer's here, and with it, large robots that would maul your face, legs, or anything else. That's right, it's another season of BattleBots, and with it, another season of the BattleBots Beat!
So, I don't have anything to recap
Welcome back to the Beat! For those new to the site or returning for the first time in a while (we survived the off-season!), this is the BattleBots Beat, a weekly recap of the most recent episode of BattleBots. Yes, BattleBots is a thing again. As a matter of fact,
Sorry. Had to make it.
Welcome back to the Beat, and welcome back from the break! Everything's all caught up now, Shark Week has come and gone, though the last Sharknado movie isn't for another couple weeks, and it's not even by the original writer. (Fun fact: We went to the
Welcome to Senor's BattleBots Beat, the best BattleBots review series that posts on Thursdays… that doesn't routinely mention a "Bad Dragon." (Just a hunch, don't Google that one at work. Or at your family computer.)
Last week, we had some fantastic fights and rumbles, and Tombstone and Minotaur nearly broke the
No, that wasn't the name of the episode, that was me trying to be clever. Also I figured a second season of this means it deserves a category, maybe I'll retroactively categorize things like the Season 2 recaps?
