    Did anyone else happen to watch this?

    Loved the premise, and I hope it grows to the point where the robots become even more sophisticated. I was also hoping that the robots were created by contestants, but I guess to get consistent quality, they had to do it this way.

    I used to love the Robot Wars show and BattleBots. This just seems to be the next gen.

    I try to catch the show if it's on and I have nothing better to do. It is entertaining.

    I think it's alot of fun, bar the annoying sod stories from the contestants.
    Fun to see how the robots develop over future series.

    I do watch (PPV) Fast forward through most of it.

    When I first heard about this show I thought people were going to be fighting robots they actually built or helped built.

    I was fairly disappointed when pre-built robots were given to people and all they really do is flail away with their arms until one gets enough lucky hits to damage the other robot.

    Not a very good show, but it passes the time.

    I can see this show evolving more towards a single-episode competition rather than a season-long tournament.

    I feel this way as well, but I am still hoping that it gets a modicum of success to allow the robots to evolve.

    I want a Robot with a Claw hand where upon grabbing a hold of the other robot can use its other "Saw/drill" hand to saw or drill into it.

    BTW the woman who won the flailing arm contest this week was uber-annoying.
