Storyline

Now, through ground-breaking engineering, the fusion of a human's fighting spirit with a powerful machine built for destruction has become reality in Robot Combat League. This series puts a 21st century spin on gladiatorial combat with tournament-style battle between eight-feet tall, state-of-the-art humanoid robots whose movements are controlled by exo-suit clad human robo-jockeys. Twelve teams of two contestants, a fighter (the robo-jockey) and a robotics engineer (the robo-tech), are paired with unique robots that clash in the ring for three rounds of intense action, with the winning team advancing in the tournament.

This show is likely much less scripted than any other reality crap on TV. As an engineer I enjoy seeing the robots operate and the carnage incurred during the fights. This is the FIRST SHOW OF ITS KIND so take it easy on "herky jerky" and "they move weird". These robots cost an insane amount of money to build, no amateurs are going to be able to start this kind of show without a network funding it. I eagerly wait each week to watch it and give it an 8/10. They could do without the staged fireworks, but they are probably just based on an accelerometer on the robot most likely to indicate to the viewers when a hit was delivered so they do have some meaningful use.
