You know that show that comes on after The Masked Singer? Lego Masters is a mildly intense, light-hearted, and entertaining good time for the whole family that deserves a large following.

It’s no secret that The Masked Singer is one of the most popular shows on TV right now. If you tune in live each week, you might have seen promos for a Will Arnett-hosted competition series called Lego Masters. I’m not sure if Lego Masters qualifies as “reality TV” the same way Keeping Up with the Kardashians does, but it comes close and surprised me as a less than passionate reality TV fan.

At the end of every episode, tears flow from eyes consistently when an unlucky duo is sent home. How many competition shows have that? In a cutthroat world, it’s a relief to see other Lego builders sympathize with those who couldn’t quite cut it to move on to the next challenge. Speaking of cutthroat, the more relaxed feel makes Lego Masters a good show for the whole family to watch (watch out for a shirtless Terry Crews flexing his pecs in Episode 8 though).

More from FOX

Here’s just a brief summary for those unfamiliar with the show: Based on a British TV series, 10 different teams of 2 people compete for the title of Lego Master. Each week, they are given a unique challenge to showcase their talents and creative abilities. The winner gets $100,000. Amy and Jamie are the judges who ultimately determine who advances.

What makes Lego Masters such a special show to me is its ability to re-inspire my childhood imagination. Seeing grown adults come up with illustrious stories and creative designs with limited time is amazing to watch.

Just when I think the judges can’t possible create a challenge more creative and challenging, they surprise me with something I would probably not think of if I had all the time in the world. Also, as a Black man it was great to see other Black men on the show unapologetically express their creative side.

If you’re thinking a show like this seems childish, I dare you to watch episode five without being on the edge of your seat. The emotional moments really hit home as well, particularly the aforementioned scenes where the judges decide who gets sent home each week. Give Lego Masters a chance and you may discover a new weekly obsession.

Lego Masters airs Wednesdays at 9/8c on FOX, you can stream the entire series on Hulu.
