    When I was little, I loved

    When I was little, I loved watching Robot Wars and Battlebots. Anyone here remember those shows?

    I hope it will comeback someday. So many things become more prominent as I grew up. It's unfortunately this reach a point in the early 2000's as gaining more television contracts and attention. But then it all died. While, it is still around, I prefer to see it more visibly growing.
