The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.

Positive Messages

Builds require creativity and imagination, and also need some STEAM skills to produce advanced work.  

Positive Role Models & Representations

The competitors range from artists and designers to teachers and engineers. Teams are composed of families, friends, and partners. All teams want to win but still offer encouragement and support to each other. 


Lego builds collapse, sometimes get smashed, and on occasion, are blown up. 


Words like "damn" and "hell" are occasionally used. 


Lego brand bricks are central to the series, and the logo is everywhere. Specific Lego sets are sometimes featured. 

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Lego Masters is a competition show where lots of adults build big, creative objects using Lego bricks. The Lego brand logo is constantly visible, and on occasion, specific Lego sets are shown. Overall, it's positive and family-friendly, aside from some very mild disagreements between contestants and occasional strong words (like "damn"). Builds sometimes get smashed or blown up for fun. This is a fun watch-together experience for Lego-loving families.

What's the story?

Based on the British series of the same name, LEGO MASTERS is a reality competition series featuring amateur adult Lego builders competing for a cash prize. Ten pairs of Lego enthusiasts are tasked with constructing original, creative, and extremely sophisticated builds using Lego blocks within a limited time frame. As the teams work, renowned brick masters Amy Corbett and Jamie Berard offer advice and critiques, while host Will Arnett offers humorous commentary. Special guests like Mayim Bialik, Terry Crews, and Nicole Byer also weigh in. After each challenge, the brick masters decide on the winners, and which team must be eliminated.The last builders standing win $100K and an impressive title. 

Is it any good?

The fun series offers Lego fans a chance to see talented amateur builders revisit their youth while creating complex models that tell good stories. Contestants go beyond merely stacking bricks, and construct large structures consisting of intricate shapes, refined edges, and mechanical details that make things drop, spin, and jettison. Adding to the fray are the animated presentations of each build, which bring the story worlds to life. But the positive energy of most of the contestants, and their collective desire to see everyone do well with their builds, makes watching Lego Masters an entertaining and feel-good experience.  

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about the use of STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math) in Lego Masters. How does the knowledge of science, technology, engineering, the arts, and math help the builders create their masterpieces? 

  • How has the Lego brand gone from providing plastic building bricks for kids to becoming a popular media entertainment franchise? Do you think this helps market even more Lego toys to kids?

  • Do you play with Lego? What kinds of things do you make with them? Does this series inspire you to build more?
