It is a show on scyfy Tuesday. Premier was just the other night. Anyone watch it? I did. It will be fun. 8 foot robots duking it out. Teams of 2. One controls movement of the feet and the other controls the arms. Kinda like the movie Real Steel but not that sophisticated yet.

I've got $5 on Optimus. He will distract the opponent with unorthodox dancing then finish with a clever uppercut.

I stumbled across it. It seemed pretty cool. Not a science geek by any means, but you have to appreciate the technology and hard work put into the robots, not to mention the imagination of creating "character" of each. The first round I thought the girl and her father were done after the actuator on the arm was torn apart. They adjusted well and KO'd their opponent.

The people that are doing the actual fighting don't need to be looking at the robots too much. They need to look across the arena at the opponent's fighter and shadowbox them.

It is worth a look. I'm sure they'll replay the first episode before the second one next Tuesday's regular time slot.

Ehh.. I watched it, but for some reason I couldn't really get into it. I was expecting it to be like Battlebots (the shiznit), but it seems more like a mix between Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots and another lame, overproduced reality show. I'm still curious though, so I'll tune in next week.
