Can't forget the build your own rockem' sockem' robot show!
emilie is CRANKY Back · 16 years, 8 months ago
yeah! that's what i was going to say! we loooooove robot wars! *dances*
nate... Back · 16 years, 8 months ago
See, I considered including that, but it really doesn't fit this poll.

Robot Wars isn't really a "this is what you have to accomplish, now build something that can do it." challenge.

Great show, though. :)
Jºnªthªn Back · 16 years, 8 months ago
This is what you have to accomplish: build a robot to kill other robots.

Go to it.

I agree, mostly, I like most british style over all. Yay@ Red Dwarf, and Whose line, and Coupling. But Junkyard wars... I don't get it. It could be that the extent of my automobile knowledge is how to fill the gas tank, where the oil is and where the water thingy is... well and how to drive.

I love Junkyard Wars...it's awesome to see stuff in process. But I'm currently enamored with Full Metal Challenge so I had to go with it. Henry Rollins is a hoot and I have a crush on Cathy. (Is that her name?) It's a really fun show to watch. :)
nate... · 16 years, 8 months ago
I love Junkyard wars... both versions. And full metal as well... but I had to go for Monster Garage, as it is currently my fav.

The artistry is AMAZING with those guys... I mean, junkyard/full metal are impressive slapped together machines that do something.... but monster garage combines that with real artistry and an impressive level of refinement.
and... I love the fact that the vehicles have to appear to be stock.
:)

I guess I do love them all... but at the moment, monster garage is winning for pure fascination points.

woohoo for monster garage! that show really is amazing, and nate, if you ever get a chance, check out some of jesse james' custom bikes, they're amazing
nate... Back · 16 years, 8 months ago
Yeah, did you see the special this weekend about him?
they did an hour long thing about his custom bikes and stuff.

The guy may be a tool... and a bad father... but he's an amazing artist and sculpter.
nate... Back · 16 years, 8 months ago
Oh, and no pun intended.
heh

with craig charles hosting. cute little british nerdboys building robots, *and* david lister of "red dwarf." what more do you need?
Talcott Back · 16 years, 8 months ago
Craig Charles is the host on the British one now? Are they just cycling through the Red Dwarf crew?

Hmm...I want to see a Rimmer-hosted episode!
goovie is married! Back · 16 years, 8 months ago
i've only ever seen the craig charles episodes. who from rd used to host it?
Talcott Back · 16 years, 8 months ago
Robert Llewellyn hosted it too.
Actually, he's the only British host I've seen (not counting the girl whose name escapes me)

Drea Back · 16 years, 8 months ago
You mean Robot Wars.. Robert Llewellyn (sp) is still hosting Junkyard Wars.

I had to say I couldn't choose! Junkyard Wars (either version) is great, Monster Garage is cool, and it took a truly twisted, demented and evil mind to create Full Metal Challenge.. it rocks *g* (And hey, the Cdn team's in the semi finals! Go Snow Diggers!)
Mamalissa! · 16 years, 8 months ago
There's also that Build a Better Mouse Trap show. Really depressing. No one ever wins.
nate... Back · 16 years, 8 months ago
Huh... never seen that one... when/where is it on?
Mamalissa! Back · 16 years, 8 months ago
Futility Network. The time is never listed. You just have to watch and wait.
nate... Back · 16 years, 8 months ago
what an excercise in fu... oh... wait.....
;)
