It's amazing that you glaze over the context of Nero fighting against Roman nobility which could be the cause of his very negative portrayal in historical texts

Okay, now all we have to do is completely restore it to the way it was at the height of the empire so that we may truly admire it in all of its original beauty

Does anyone else notice something weird with the music at like 4:25 to 4:35? Almost sounds like the tracks overlapped lol! One of their captured musicians they keep in the basement must have accidentally jumped the gun, now you just need to figure out which one did it and remove their window privileges for a week.

Did the Colosseum fall victim to Cleo's war on legos? Or did that take too long to make for you to risk having it destroyed?

So the Colosseum was originally built as a slap in the face to Emperor Nero. I can dig that.

So happy that OSP managed to get a sponsorship from such a big company! I was not too interested in watching lego-building at the end but still intending to to support the channel, but you guys knew how to hold audience focus. When in doubt add cats

Now just to convince lego to let use their blocks to create a full scale version of the undamaged colosseum, a true monument to building epic creations brick by brick! Mwahhahahaha!

it made me surprisingly excited to see that they got the pillars right. i say surprisingly 'cause i had an exam about greek and roman architecture the other day and i'm soooo done with that sh*t . i can't really tell if they made the ionic and corinthian columns slimmer than the doric colums, but they got the capitals right!

Wait so the Colosseum wasn't built until during the reign of Emperor Nero... during the Roman Empire. What about the Roman Republic then with the Third Servile War? Did Spartacus not fight in said Colosseum since it didn't exist at the time? I feel betrayed by Netflix!

So it was the circus maximus, not the coloseum that the romans fed chistians to animals? The coloseum was built after Nero. I wonder what got him so messed up in his later years?

I have two problems with this episode, although I understand that the length of the video doesn't let it go much bigger, but anyways: there are already plenty of doubts about how much Nero was actually the tyrant he is portrayed as, since only recently people thought to question the bias of the main sources on him (that were politically invested in demeaning him) and started to look for info elsewhere. Secondly, among the gladiators there was far less bloodshed than people think, and by the time of the Colosseum it was just a sport, violent but rarely lethal and not meant to be. It wasn't even the most important or common event to happen there, this was the races. The Romans LOVED the races.

Been there. I was underwhelmed by it's size as compared to our modern sports stadiums but I was impressed by its construction .... or at least what was still standing ... and not pilfered.

There were a lot of points in this video where they seemed to want to swear but didn't. I'm guessing the LEGO sponsorship stipulated the video be family-friendly.
