No, the characters are 2-d and story is not surprising at all. The voice acting is meh-nice but I wouldn't watch it. It could ruin the theme for you.

I thought the first season was okay (with the skeletons and all), but season 2 with serpentine and such did ruin it.

Sounds sad- it sounded like it had potential. I remember writing a brik-fiction combining Ninjago and corrupt politicians and leaving it halfway through. Maybe I should continue.

Season 1 was by far the best season, but still, a 2 dimensional story and 2 dimensional characters! I really can't stand that! A character needs to have at least 3 attributes! I give you an example, but it's Pwny, so spoiler'd:
Spoiler: show
My Little penises                                                 Ninjago
Fluttershy: ------------------->                                            Cole:
Shy                                      ---------------------->                        Quiet
Contained rage                                      ------------->       Though
Loves animals
Generally kind
Stands up for her friends
if neccesary.

You see, that's how 2d the ninjago characters really are compared to a cartoon.

And chainsaws. That theme had lots of them. Too bad they're not OT.

But yeah it was awesome, but not as awesome as Ice Planet which I dream of being revisited by Lego.

Stumbled across a huge cache of Series 7 minifigs, walked away with 8 packs- 8 for 8 on Galaxy Patrols.

A friend of mine had left his Legos at my house for like over a year. He left them after playing Brikwars at my house one and just never asked for them back. When I moved out a month or so ago, he just told me I could have them. Major swag, as he had quite a few good pieces, and no shortage of minifigs. I spent the weekend assimilating them into the horde, as well as picking out all the Megablocks.
