Lego City Adventures? BEST! I loved it! My older sister hates every single show I recommend but instead of that it has a lot of great role models like Billy, the police, and the firefighters. Freya, Duke Detain, and Billy McCloud (the good characters) are also my favorite characters. I would recommend this to any kid or parent I know. And also when it says it's rated TV-Y7, I agree. The trailer isn't that convincing but it's still a good show (especially when season 4 aired!) My favorite episodes come from season 3 and 4. That's when I started liking the show as a kid. And I started getting addicted to LEGOs after that. If Common Sense Media hates it or not, change your rating! Every show you rate 3 stars. My big sister should regret her response when she sees this rating. She's gonna go DOWN!!

Too many sirens and chases. Anyone under 8 shouldn't be watching this kind of content

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (6 ):
Kids say (5 ):

Lego's recipe for hilarious entertainment tailored to the well-known blocky toy line rarely disappoints, and these stories, based on some of the most dysfunctional community safety departments you've ever seen, fall right in line. One-line zingers poke fun at Lego mores (large bags with dollar signs that act as robber bait, for instance) and classic cartoon cliches (villains whose premature celebrations prove their undoing). The wacky characters certainly wouldn't cut it as chiefs and safety professionals in the real world, but they're just right for a city that's as unpredictable as they are.

What makes Lego City Adventures a lot of fun is the rapid-fire humor in both dialogue and situational plot, much of which will be lost on young kids. As silly as the plot and characters can be, the whole package is more tailored to tweens and teens who can follow the somewhat frantic pace and constant action.
