Re: BattleBots Season 2

There's actually a "promo episode" that will be playing on May 10th from 10-11 pm with 4 rumbles that will star Clark Gregg as a guest celebrity judge.
(More info here)

The rest of the episodes will be on Thursday nights at 8pm starting on June 23rd.

Re: BattleBots Season 2

I'm watching with a lot of interest. Frederick Moore* of the Danger 4 team was on 1293 while I was a mentor**, so you know I have to pull for that.

*His father also allowed the team to use his warehouse as a build space for many years, which allowed them to keep a great operation growing.

**My last season with them as a full-on mentor was 2006. Ten years ago, holy cow.

Sorry buddy. Maybe you can download the episode (and skip through the fluff) now or soon?

Ideally watch it on hulu once it goes live there, those views get factored into the ratings for ABC. Help support the show getting a 3rd season.

Re: BattleBots Season 2

As a member of Team Blacksmith, you know who I was rooting for during the melee episode

I have to say that participating in Battlebots this year was one of the most exciting projects I've been involved with. All the teams are amazingly friendly and helpful (kind of like FRC), and I learned a ton about machine design and fabrication techniques.
Filming happened to come between our final FRC regional and Champs, which made for a very busy month of March with robots!

Re: BattleBots Season 2

I know I'll be pulling for Aptyx and the guys from 254. Since I don't know of anyone else that's competing.

Please, as Adam mentioned above, anyone who is able to stream the episode through ABC/Hulu, do so! I understand if people are outside the country and can't do so...but if you have the ability to watch an official source and watch on Youtube instead, the ratings for the show are suffering.

Lockjaw
Overhaul's team leader used to do FRC
I think someone on Bombshell may have as well
I believe chrome fly has students who do/did FRC
There are probably more that I'm not remembering.
