    I'm glad I don't remember that, I never would've finished breakfast. 

    Well, upon further review as an American who says "lay-go" more often than not, I'm going to have to assume I'm an outlier.

    Do you think that it's time we should email Cartoon Network, LEGO, and Warner Bros. Animation to do a block of new cartoons based on current LEGO themes?
    I don't think it'd make a huge difference to email them. Lego can't just up and make a cartoon for a theme if the theme's marketing and media budget isn't already set up for that, and chances are it'd take quite a while (a year, at least) to get one brand-new show up and running, let alone several.

    What sorts themes are you wanting shows for, anyway? There are already ongoing TV series for Ninjago, Star Wars, and Nexo Knights, movies/specials for DC Super Heroes, Jurassic World, Scooby Doo, Mixels, and Elves, Netflix series for Bionicle and Friends (along with Elves moving to Netflix next year), and web animations for any number of themes. To be quite honest I'd say we're living in somewhat of a golden age for Lego media already.
    Well, how bout a cartoon adaptation of both the LEGO City theme and Creator series?

    I think the difficulty with that is that they don't have such strongly defined (by TLG) characters, which is probably by design to allow kids to create their own characters and stories with those minifigs. It's not accidental that themes like Friends and Nexo Knights get animated series; the storytelling potential with characters and plots is designed into them from the beginning.

    I just saw a small collection of Lego on Grand Designs tonight. Channel 4.
    Owned by a young lad living in an eco-village called Lammas in Wales.

    ^ That reminds me, I saw one of those shows that help buyers choose a new home like 7 years ago... The host is a realtor who shows the show guests three properties based on their wants and then they have to choose one.  One of them was a couple from Portland, OR and the guy wanted a room for hobbies... like Lego, he had a small display of vehicles set up when the show went back shortly after they settled in.

    So is it meant to be pronounced 'Lee-Go' or 'Lay-Go'? I used to pronounce it as the former, but then everyone around me started pronouncing it as the latter, so I just went along with the majority.

    I'm not sure there is a 'meant to be'. If this discussion has proved anything it's that some Brits pronounce it one way, some another, some Americans pronounce it the same and some different and that no-one says it quite like the Danish.

    A certain Louis Theroux episode aired recently and it featured within a Lego bust that should be returned to a pile of bricks.

    It's not Lego on tv programs but is a Lego programme. Not sure if this has been mentioned but Ninjago Day of the Departed is on now. Its an hour long and seems to be the basis for the new Ninjago sets, not sure if it's a Halloween special or just the start of the new series ? Can anyone else shed some light ?

    @sonatine01i it's a TV-special belonging to season 6, there are some sets based on it (http://brickset.com/sets/theme-Ninjago/subtheme-Day-of-the-Departed).

    I think it's a chance for a couple of old favourites to be resurrected for people who missed out on it (and TLG makes some money) - is it any good?

    @snowhitie thank-you, I spied the related sets just wasn't sure how it tied in with the new series, but you've cleared that up for me.

    As for if it was any good, it's not my sort of thing so I'm probably not the best to ask. My 7yr old enjoyed it though and happily explained all the bits that didn't make sense to me :-)

    It would be helpful if you could say which channel the program is on. Then everyone can try to find it.
  • sonatine01sonatine01 Daventry, EnglandMember Posts: 566
    @Venunder it was on Cartoon Network and by looks of it it's on again next at 10.30 Sunday morning again on Cartoon Network, hope that helps.

    Because watching a cabin dweller fish for hours on end while the local moose walks by is incredibly engaging.

    I also can't think of anything more entertaining than watching a crook get chased by a cop car that is altered slightly every new episode.

    Or perhaps watching incredibly vibrant construction vehicles that have no drivers construct nothing because they can't carry any material that's more than half their weight.

    In all seriousness, I know that City has some potential, what with the results of the Lego City Undercover videogame, none of these sound at all entertaining to market similar to current Lego Themes that have a television/streaming presence.

    The latest episode of QI featured some Lego. It was Sandi Toksvig's second episode as host with the theme being 'North Norse' and all things Danish being mentioned. They couldn't say the word 'Lego' so it was referred to as something along the lines of 'generic interlocking brick system' by Alan Davies. They also brought out a reproduction of the QI set in Lego, including minifigs and QI logo. Was a nice surprise!

    I think they had a Lego studio on Only Connect a series or two ago, as well. One of the teams were AFOLs, iirc.

    The Pentatonix Christmas Special on NBC had a Lego segment.  It looks like '90s style animation because it's VR. You can drag and look around or if you have VR glasses – be inside it.

    On Jeopardy tonight, there was a "LEGO" category. Unfortunately, I was not able to see it. Did anyone happen to catch it and remember the questions and answers?

    OK, I was able to catch a replay. The questions involved showing pictures of LEGO sets, but they were stuff that you didn't really need to know too much about LEGO to get the answers. However, in looking for it, I found pages on the official Jeopardy! site talking about LEGO designers making a 12,650 piece model of the Jeopardy set, and minifigure versions of the cast and crew.

    There's actually a bunch of 'em on the Sky youtube channel - the running theme of these ads appears to be "Batman is a prick to the people at Sky broadband for no discernible reason"

    I was able to find a list of the questions and answers (source):

    $200: A carpenter, Ole Kirk Christiansen, founded Lego in the 1930s to make wooden toys; he coined the company name from the words "Leg godt"-- "play well" in this, his native language

    What is Danish?

    $400: Popular sets from the Building Series include such landmarks as Big Ben, the Eiffel Tower, and this World Heritage Site and masterpiece of Indian architecture

    What is the Taj Mahal?

    $600: In 2016, NASA's Juno probe completed its 5-year voyage to Jupiter; on board is a mini-figure of this 17th-century Italian, telescope in hand

    Who is Galileo?

    $800: In 2016, NASA's Juno probe completed its 5-year voyage to Jupiter; on board is a mini-figure of this 17th-century Italian, telescope in hand

    What is renewable energy?

    $1000: The Mindstorms construction kit, which allows children to build and program their own robotic devices, grew out of the company's longstanding partnership with the famous Media Lab of this Cambridge, Massachusetts school

    What is MIT?


    Here is the video clip, but they skipped the $600 question:

    Will Arnett was on Sunday Brunch (UK TV programme) promoting the Lego Batman Movie along with Johnny Vegas (Whos a Will Arnett AND Lego fan)...

    https://mobile.twitter.com/SundayBrunchC4/status/823569241244741633/video/1

    Later when they were interviewing Vegas he said that Will Arnett had asked if they had sent the Batmobile to him to promote the movie, to which Johnny revealed that no he bought it and made it just for him :D
