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.
SEASON 1 EPISODE 10: THE GREEN NINJA
Well, finally, this guy has only been built up since episode one!
Tonight there were two new episodes of LEGO Ninjago: Rebooted, Enter the Digiverse, and Codename: Arcturus. Just so ya know, some of the characters and situations in these episodes are spoilers, not just for season 3, but season 2 as well, so don’t read if you’re not caught up! (Or if you just don’t care about spoilers)
SEASON 1 EPISODE 9: THE ROYAL BLACKSMITHS
We open inside an Aztec-style pyramid with a snake motif, where Pythor and the Serpentine are searching for the second fang-blade. Like any good Indiana Jones-type temple, it’s full of boobie-traps. And we all know who loves boobie-traps!
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)
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!
