Robots activate

In general television kinda sucks. I do find myself liking certain shows and it surprises me a little.

I really like the Battle Bots, have watched for several years.

I love watching them fight. How they are made, what they can do.

I just enjoy it overall. Would have been a cool hobby to get into.

Anyway, just seeing if there was another fan out there.

it's a lot better if you can fast forward past all the hoopla and go straight to the metallic carnage.

I remember back when Grant Imahara of Mythbusters fame first appeared on Battlebots with his robot Deathblow.

Lots of innuendo there, Gordy.

Good to see you, bud! (And we all know how much I love bud....)

I've been known to watch every once in awhile. I'd really watch a show where they follow teams designing, fabricating and then testing the 'bots before the matches.

There's my Evil! Good to see you! 

I've watched the show for a few years now, and I'm getting excited seeing more female engineers. Robotics is a challenging field and having battles involves physics [up spin vs. down spin, angular momentum, etc.] and anticipating one's opponent's next move. Women are good at both, especially the anticipating the next move part (e.g., "if you think you're going to a strip club instead of serving drinks at my Pampered Chef party, you have another 'think' coming!")

It's always good to see you cobaltblue! 

Yes, women are as smart, as strong and as capable as men at anything they want to do.
