This is (indeed) the first step to "Real Steel".
I enjoyed watching it.
Thank you for sharing this with us.
I'll bide my time until two competitors square off in Aliens' Power Lifter-style exo-frames, to me that's Real Steel !
watched the first one... the "competitors" did not make the bots, one man did. just cant buy into it, i know it has to start somewhere but this just seems to scripted.
Pardon my cynicism, it's television, it's worse actually, reality television which means it's all scripted
Still better (and more appropriate) than WWF....
I still say it's not as good as Robot Wars from G4Tv or BattleBots from Comedy Central. There was a UK version of either show a while back but I didn't think it was as good as the originals from here and Canada.
I agree with arkon that it's all scripted, typical of reality tv.
It's pretty cool, but you have to say that with every "reality" TV show that comes out you can subtract about 5 IQ points from the average TV viewer.
More like 50 IQ points. Don't forget Jersey Shore. sign1
Hmmm... you have a point there... and subtract an addtional 25 point if there are rednecks or hillbillies in the show!
Hey go easy on my kinfolk. I am a sophisticated redneck thank you very much.
