LEGO: Ninjago Masters of Spinjituz Episode 11 Review

SEASON 1 EPISODE 11: ALL OF NOTHING

 

We open with the ninja cornering a Venomari in Ninjago City using their new powers. We see that Jay can become electricity and travel through telephone lines! It’s awesome! Too bad I’m pretty sure it’s never used again.

LEGO Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu Episode 9 Review

LEGO Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu Episode 8 Review

Hey, I’m back from playing with explosives with my family!

SEASON 1 EPISODE 8: ONCE BITTEN, TWICE SHY

 

We open with Nya speaking on the fascinating subject of Fangpyre paleontology, which I obviously find more interesting than our heroes. She’s been analyzing the venom in the fossilized fangs (The venom hasn’t broken down? It must be really young and well-preserved, we’re talking like less than 10000 years!) and has found that the snake mutation process can be reversed if you dramatically raise your heart-rate. (Which is weird, because that’s the exact opposite of what you’re supposed to do if you’re bitten by a venomous snake in real life)

No new Review this week

Sorry folks, I’m too busy celebrating Independence Day with my family to figure out the new Word Press post format this week. I’ll hopefully have it figured out and post episode 8 this Tuesday, and the regularly scheduled reviews will continue after that.

So, sorry for the inconvenience. In the mean time, check out this cool interview with the Hageman Brothers, the writers behind Ninjago: http://deadshirt.net/2014/01/03/the-e-list-dan-and-kevin-hageman-talk-ninjago-the-lego-movie-and-how-to-write-a-screenplay-with-your-brother/

See you next week!
