Battlebots vs. Robot Wars

September 6th, 2016

There’s one thing that always bugged me about British television, it always felt cheap to me.  From classic Doctor Who and even more modern BBC shows, it isn’t just production value, which is typically much lower, it’s the writing and the expectations that are much, much lower.  This struck me recently as I was watching the reborn British Robot Wars, it was hard not to compare it to the American Battlebots, and unfortunately, the UK version simply doesn’t compare favorably.  Here’s why, at least in my opinion.
