Engadget Eurocast 055 - 2.28.14

Ah, the joys of innocence. Jamie didn't know there was a Lego Movie, but Dan is here to fill him in on the details and deliver his thoughts on how it's the antithesis of Toy Story's rigid plot. The conversation then turns to Amazon's rebranding of Lovefilm in the UK and its plans to bolster its streaming library and revive Ripper Street, a Victorian-era cop show. Then there's the tangled web of intrigue and black-market banking called Bitcoin to try and hash out. It's a hefty task, but the crew is ready to attack the issues head on. Join us at the streaming links below for this week's episode of the Engadget Eurocast.
