Tracking down Battlebots
June 20, 2006 12:39 AM   Subscribe

I've got a hankering for some robot combat. Could anyone help me locate some copies of the Comedy Central Series Battlebots?

Yes, I know it's a bit of a lame question, but it's mostly a nostalgic "wanting to relive those bygone college days" thing, since that show was a weekly ritual for my house full of friends.

I know the show isn't available officially on DVD or VHS, and it's my understanding it shant be offered anytime soon. But I believe some of my fellow nerds out there must have been recording the show, and tapes must be floating around.

I'm aware that there exist dealers for copies of out of print and rare television, but beyond being aware of their existence in the general sense, I'm clueless.

I've checked e-bay, and my preferred P2P services with no luck. My google searches have only turned up the Calgary Aerospace Museum (which apparently has seasons 1-3 for checkout), but alas I'm quite sure an international trek is a bit farther then I'm willing to go for this.

Any info on tape dealers, or any other ideas?

Thanks much.

Not the same show, but you can buy DVDs of what is probably the UK version, Robot Wars. Quite fun, I seem to remember.

Did you try searching on their broadband video player, "Motherload"?

Never mind, doesn't seem to be on there. Too bad.

You know, I've never seen Robot Wars. I think I shall have to check it out. That Motherload deal seems pretty cool also.

Thanks.
