We honestly haven’t kept up with the television documentary Vanguard or its sponsoring Internet/Cable channel Current TV, but this trailer for their upcoming show Japan: Robot Nation has our interest piqued. We’re digging all of the robots, the ties of said robots to evolving Japanese culture and the overly dramatic score supporting the whole thing. The show doesn’t air until December 10, 10PM EST & 10PM PST on Current TV. But if you’ve got the channel, now might be a good time to set the DVR. Otherwise it’ll probably be viewable on the web at that time, too.
