With all the thrills and edge-of-your-seat tension of a major sporting tournament, combined with the latest in robot engineering and larger-than-life inventors, BattleBots has proved a huge hit for ABC in the US and will have viewers of all ages gripped. It all starts with 24 extraordinary and very different remote-controlled Bots, each weighing up to 110kg and made from the toughest metal and the cleverest components. In pairs, they go head-to-head inside the perilous and bullet-proof BattleBot arena, with the aim of destroying or completely disabling their opponent. As well as all the lights, cheers and excitement that accompany any great sporting event, action replays ensure that no smash, crash or bash goes unwitnessed, while expert sports commentators give a blow-by-blow account from the ringside. During each episode, we meet the creators behind these awesome machines. From amateurs and super-smart technology students to seasoned professionals who have dedicated their lives to creating the ultimate fighting robot, find out what drives these charismatic inventors, and how they turn their visions into supreme battling robots. At the end of each battle, official referees declare a victor with the winning Bot progressing to the next stage of the competition. The tension rises as the tournament continues and more Bots are eliminated. Thrilling, entertaining and merciless throughout, the series culminates in scattered parts, shattered hearts and a spectacular trophy for the BattleBots champion.
