The Americans have "BattleBots" where invention must of course include violence. :-) Yes, I do watch it anyway... I personally think the remote control thing is silly. They need to be entirely self contained and self guided. If they aren't, they really aren't robots. They are remotely controlled death machines.
What's up with Robotica??? They need to get rid of Ahmet Zappa FAST. I loved Frank as much as anyone, but his kids don't automatically get the respect I had for him. Ahmet is just annoying on that show. Lets put him on the 16x16 platform with a couple of robots.
