What special features and why so few episodes?,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Charlie And Lola: One [DVD] (DVD)
My daughter and I love Charlie and Lola. Although it's kept her captivated since its arrival, I have to say that I am quite disppointed with the amount of episodes on the DVD (only 7) and the very, very poor special features.
The jigsaw game is uninspired and maybe they should have looked to the Playhouse Disney Charlie and Lola site for inspiration. As for the hilarious outtakes and hidden surprises, I think these two terms somewhat stretch the truth. All I could find (including opening up all the files on my PC) was Lola putting on hats and her babbling into a microphone.
I am glad I paid the Amazon price for this DVD as it's a bit steep for what you get. For such an highly original show which stands out from all the dross out there for kids it's a pity more time wasn't spent puting this DVD together.
Despite this the animation, writing and voices of Charile and Lola are so brilliant that the slight naffness of the DVD features and lack of episodes can be forgiven.
