More sports candy from Season One
on August 7, 2006
The LazyTown television series is growing in popularity every day, and there's no prize for guessing why. Originating from Iceland and led from the front by creator and star Magnus Scheving, the show encourages healthy eating and exercise, to the beat of hot Eurodance music. Part live action, part puppets and some CGI animation, this appealing series also stars one of the most loveable of villains, played by the talented Stefan Karl Steffanson, a hottie with a strong jaw line, an impressive wardrobe of costumes and a never ending stream of nefarious gadgets.
This is the fifth DVD release, and contains four episodes from Season One (2004 - 2005):
Records Day (Episode 18): There's an opening in the LazyTown Records Book for "Laziest Person" and Robbie is looking forward to having his name entered for posterity as the record holder in this category. Unfortunately, Stephanie and the other kids also have their eyes on various records, and a villain's gotta do what a villain's gotta do to put a stop to all the activity.
Hero For a day (Episode 7): Ziggy wants to be a hero like Sportacus, but of course things don't work out as planned for the candy addicted lad.
Zap It! (Episode 17): Lazy Pixel hates cleaning, so he invents a machine that makes things disappear, especially the garbage in an untidy room. Robbie sees an ideal opportunity to get rid of Sportacus forever. (Insert diabolical laughter and a little dance jig here)
Secret Agent Zero (Episode 27): Move over Mayor Milford Meanswell, because there's a new mayor in town. Suspecting that the election has been rigged, the kids go undercover with Mayor Meanswell to reveal the truth behind the ballot.
The special features are disappointing, with only two short exercise dances that are impossible to follow, and there are no subtitles or closed captioning. It can however be played in French - oooh la la!
