    and now for the audience's viewing pleasure we wil cover everything in fog so nobody can see anything :p

    10 robot rumble will favour rugged bots I'm thinking. should be fun

    So, they're getting the area to destroy itself rather than waiting for Carbide to do it.

    uhm... fog of doom is pointless and wastes time more then anything

    them counting to show daras and angelas reactions to the fight annoyed me as this is robot wars not 2 people watch robot wars

    the new format way to mch favours the robots that get though the first round

    and the fact this new format forces battereted machienes to play for scaps shows they have solved nothing but chaused more issues down the line

    the fight were amazing but wait to I get home I have a cair and I need to beet it over the head of the bbc

    I really liked the new series so far; 'Fog of War' not withstanding. The fights were pretty good, and the production team seem to have really sharpened up their camera work. Dara and Angela I find quite fun as presenters, and Jonathan is as excitable as ever. Big respect to the Donald Thump guy, he played his part very well.

    Well for the first time since series 2 Behemoth has past its heat and by beating the former champ for the first time. Also I like the new format, a lot better than the battle royal. And to finish this off, flying floor spike.

    That was an exciting start to the new series. I actually like the new format since it means we don't have a rematch for the heat final. I'm unsure about the Fog of War, I'm doubtful it will do much.

    Also I did find the Donald Thump guy rather funny. :p

    I thought it was a tremendous final. Will be giving it another watch in the next few days I think.

    woo robots :D great final and heat! robot melee thing workedish except for fog
    for final though they keep on underscoring damage. carbide clear winner for me if you take that intoo account and they were able to keep their weapon going through the whole fight

    That was an amazing episode of Robot Wars, probably one of the most exciting ever.

    There were so many robots in the pit at the end of the 10 robot rumble! I've never seen it so full. The Fog of War proved to be a bit of a nuisance in that fight for spectating purposes. I do wonder if that feature will just be abandoned, particularly as it seems to favour spinners.

    Nuts 2 pulled the shock of the tournament. I was amazed to see it beat both Behemoth and Carbide. A shame it couldn't pull off the same feat twice.

    I was a little surprised to see Eruption win the event. Carbide did do more damage, but I was happy to see Eruption get the win. They did really well to survive and it was a very close battle. A great way to end the series.

    Well 20 years ago we saw the first eposide of Robot Wars where we saw Nemesis burn, Roadblock gave Killertron a piggyback and for the next 20 years we saw many great robots and fights.

    Awww, that's a shame. It had a good run, though and it was good to see it come back.

    For me the remake never lived up the the original, so I gave up with it. I would have enjoyed it more if they hadn't had the ever so dreary Dara O'Briain presenting and fights which were more geared towards destroying your opponents rather than favoring cheap flipper and pit wins.
