Lego Masters
« on: February 05, 2020, 11:22:19 PM »
Just a few hours ago, I watched the first episode of a new show called "Lego Masters". Basically, it's a show where groups of people compete to build all kinds of creations out of Lego bricks and pieces, with different challenges for each episode. Oh, and it's hosted by Will Arnett (the voice of Lego Batman).

Is anyone here interested in this show? If you happened to watch this week's episode, what did you like about it?

Hmm! I'd be interested, but sadly there doesn't seem to be a streaming service here that has picked it up (only a commercial television station, but I wouldn't be able to watch at the times they air the show). How are you liking it so far?

I guess I should've specified that I was referring specifically to the American version. There are apparently different versions of this show for certain countries, but they all mostly follow the same premise. There's already been one for UK and one for Australia, and I've heard plans are already underway for one in Germany.

As a Lego enthusiast, I'm definitely liking this show a lot already. Even after just one episode, I'm quite impressed by what some of these teams have been able to create (though other teams definitely have much to improve on). (I guess one thing I forgot to mention is that the competitors for this show consist of teams of two, with a total of ten teams at the start that are eliminated one at a time until the last one standing is the winner.) The challenge for the first episode was to build a section of a theme park, with a requirement of at least one moving component. I'd rather not give out spoilers, so I won't bother going into details on who did better than others and what exactly they all built.

Second episode was on a couple days ago, and this week's challenge was a space-themed build with the intention of being destroyed in a spectacular way. The three methods of destruction were to be smacked by a "spaceball bat", to be dropped from a balcony, or to simply be blown up. Quite an interesting challenge, with some rather neat creations made by many of the teams.

Watched the third episode last night, and this week's challenge was to take an item that had been cut in half (such as a bicycle, a guitar, a diving helmet, or a laptop computer, among other things) and build something creative for its missing half. While many of the creations looked pretty interesting, a few others were clearly lacking. A rather interesting challenge, I have to say.
