EPISODE ONE (4/1/17)

SUMMARY: At a major robotics competition, Tina and Nick are hoping win to the $50,000 grand prize to find their new biomedical research laboratory. However, their screwup colleague, Rob, forgot to bring the robot - so they make him pretend to be a robot and participate in the contest. Unbelievably, they get away with it, and Rob participates in the dance challenge. However, bully Theodore, who has a rich father and always wins the robotics competition every year, theatens Tina and Nick and says his robot, the intimidating Megadeathtron III, will take their robot apart. And it's time for the first robot fights - though Rob has a reprieve as the first fight is between robots "Scarlet Johanneson" and the made-of-cardboard "Box."

EPISODE TWO (4/8/17)

SUMMARY: Box somehow withstands the attack of Scarlet Johanneson. Rob will have to somehow fight Megadeathtron III, who is being equipped with chainsaw hands. When the fight comes, Rob tries to run away, but is pushed into the fray, and collides with the fearsome Megadeathtron... who, somehow, completely falls apart, leaving Rob as the surprise winner... and earning Theodore's enmity even more completely.


SUMMARY: The robots are challenged to an Iron Chef-style cooking competition, and they all get very simple recipes… except for Rob, who is assigned a gourmet meal. Rob desperately tries to Google how to make his fancy dinner, leading Theodore to question why a robot needs to go on the internet.
