I didn't know that George Lucas' daughter was one of the contestants. That's interesting.

The show really just looks like a large-scale version of Rock-'em-Sock-'em Robots. It also disappoints me that the teams aren't designing and building the robots themselves, but the robots are just being assigned to them. I would have liked it better if the teams were able to put some of their own personality into the designs of the robots.

That t-bar thing really annoys me too. Why even bother to have legs on the robot if it has to have a giant t-bar to keep it standing? Also, the herky-jerky movements of the robots themselves makes me think that the technology is simply not to the point where something like this can be truly entertaining.
