Next Time: Episode 3
Original Run: 2 eps,
4/1/17 - 4/8/17
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.
