I loved it when I was a kid. I'd literally throw a tantrum if I missed it. It got kinda crappy towards the end but it will interesting to see all of the technological advances since the last series.

I hope to see some of the old teams even if it's just for extra kick of nostalgia.

Did anybody else used to watch it?

Who was your favourite?

That was my first question too lol. I don't think any of that has been announced yet.

JP has said "their people are talking to my people."

Craig Charles tweeted that he has had no contact as yet but would love to do it.

Personally I think that JP will be back in commentary but I think they will go with a new young host or co-hosts to attract a younger audience.

We always made the (very off colour) joke that Stephen Hawkin should have a SRiMech fitted, then he could be one of the house robots...

I used to love Phillipa Forrester's innuendo. "Ooh, hasn't it got a big chopper" etc etc.

As expected Craig Charles will not be returning. Nor will Phillipa Forrester or Jayne Middlemiss.

Dara O'Briain and Angela Scanlon will be the new presetners with JP returning on commentary.

I think Dara is a good choice but I have no idea who Angela Scanlon is.
3 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Saturday 2/13/16 - 3:48:59 PM EST (GMT-5)
She's an Irish name who's hopped over to British TV.
Exactly like Dara, come to think of it.

Did anyone else watch jt last night?

I'm not sure what to think of it yet. It will take some getting used to. There didn't seem to be any atmosphere, which I found off putting.

I'm gutted that Razer went out in it's first battle. Nuts was pretty funny though.

I'm a huge fan, so was watching last night. I won't spoiler this, cause if you gone into this thread without having caught up that's your problem.

Gutted razor and behemoth are out - they bring back great memories! I think the thing I'll miss most are Philippa Forester's double entendres - "ooh what a big chopper " etc etc.

I know what you mean about atmosphere - hopefully that'll build.

Not a great year for Ian Lewis and his team. Out in the first round of Robot Wars with Razer and out of the first round of Battlebots with Warhead.
