I posted on this upcoming SyFy show a while back, and there was some speculation as to what kind of series it would be. Turns out it is, in fact, a reality competition show in the style of Real Steel, with motion capture-controlled robots.
But now it has my attention for two other reasons:
1. Chris Jericho – former WWE champion, periodic heavy metal frontman and total smartass – is the host.
2. George Lucas’ daughter, who is an MMA fighter, is one of the contestants.
Yes, George Lucas’ daughter is a professional ass-kicker with a giant robot. Perhaps we’d all better watch what we say about Jar Jar and metaphorically molested childhoods.
