That’s right I kid you not. The much beloved classic series about scrappy amateur teams building robots in their garage (with various degrees of success) and then duking it out in front of an audience who thirsted for robot blood, which will be used by a sentient AI in the future as a reason to kill us all, is being rebooted by the BBC.
The new series will feature six 60 minute episodes according to the BBC press release and will be made in Scotland in a newly built facility designed for the show, hinting that this won’t be a one off (http://www.bbc.co.uk/mediacentre/la…).
I for one can’t wait to see yet more carnage in the arena.
