Welcome back to the Beat! Last week, there were a pair of controversial decisions and neither of them were Chomp's fight. Also three robots went 0-3 crippling their chances of making the big end-of-season playoff bracket. This week, we have all sorts of crazy matchups, including my favorite-looking bot, Warhead.
Welcome back to the Beat! Yeah, no title smart-assery in the lede today for reasons you'll find out below. Last time out DUCK! showed it was thick as a brick, Witch Doctor voodooed its way around death by screws, and Lock-Jaw and Bronco gave us about a quarter of the
In case you're wondering what the hell I'm talking about—more than usual, of course—that's Bil Dwyer. Some of you may know him from his time on Last Comic Standing, but to me he is best known as the color commentator from the Comedy Central BattleBots seasons, and for the catchphrase,

Welcome back to the Beat! Last time, HUGE told Free Shipping to get big, Blacksmith bullied The Four Horsemen, and Yeti got its receiver issue from the Icewave loss fixed quickly enough to come try and wreck the KDFO studio. This week a DFO favorite makes her debut as do
In fairness I didn't say I was good with titles. But welcome back to the Beat! Last time, burgerbot Battle Royale with Cheese was more than a little undercooked in its debut, Lock-Jaw pulled a much less successful version of a Diesector, and Gigabyte learned that sometimes you get what you
Morning, lizard people. Let's see how this one turns out, since I was at my 10-year HS reunion over the weekend, so I was busy Friday night. And also as of this second the lappy's still mostly dead because I was running around. Which means I'll take notes on my
That's a double meaning in the title, due to my laptop being out of commission. Whoever said "hard drive error," you win! You don't win anything specifically or corporeally, or even my eternal love and admiration and gratitude. Just know that when your Disk Utility notes your S.M.A.R.T. system says
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
A long time ago (2015 does feel like an eternity), the most-recognized American robot fighting tournament came back to TV. Yes, BattleBots came back, and there was much rejoicing. I covered the second season of it for this very website! And by covered it, I mean recapped the already taped
So they finally posted all the rumbles (the last one took a week to repost because they fucked up the sponsor stuff in post or else this would have been up in a timely manner dammit), so hell with it, let's do one last write-up! Not only that, but you
All right, it's that time, for the last time, it's robot fighting time.
For old friends, welcome back! For new friends, welcome to the final BattleBots recap of the summer. I'm your friendly neighborhood Senor Weaselo. We've been following this season's BattleBots since the competing robots were announced back in April,
