If your kids are very active and like sports, Robot Combat League is an excellent alternative to MMA. There is some violence, but a lot more of the attention is paid to the bonds between the engineer and the robo-jockey, not to mention the technology itself. I work at DISH, but I used to be in special effects, and I was left speechless after watching the first episode last night. I would normally have waited until I got home to watch it because I am out of town, but I never have to do that now that we own a DISH Hopper. It lets me watch all of my DVR recordings and live television right on my phone, so I no longer miss my favorite programs no matter where I am.
