Looks like darn near anything is legal. Shred your oppontes robot if you can. Set it on fire. Smash it. Flip it out of the ring. I’ve gotten hook on the darn show. Just amazed at what people can create. Anybody else like this silliness.

    I've seen it a little bit, but we don't have cable so not often.

    On a par with much of current television - I'd much rather play solitaire on a tired old computer than sit in front of that stuff.

    I recorded 4 shows for when my 10 yr grandson came for a visit. He is really into robots, has gone to robot camp and built a few with his dad's help. His dad is an electrical engineer and makes his living designing and building down hole tools used in oil wells. Anyhow my grandson watched each of those 4 shows about 10 times. Looks like they will be adding that channel to their cable!
    :lol:
    Me, I like the shows as well. I'm another EE and that kind of stuff is just to neat to not watch.

    The tournament on Wednesday night was fun. Little time to make repairs. Durable robots vs attack robots. The winner proved to be both. Just fascinating to watch.

    Use to watch it once in a while, then got tired of the same-o same-o pancake, buzzsaw, grinding wheel, flipping, yawn, glad to see they've come up with some new stuff.
