Faulty Freddie-Great show, shame about the disc!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fast Freddie The Widow & Me - Starring Laurence Fox, Tamzin Outhwaite, Jack McMullen and Sarah Smart - As Seen on ITV1 [DVD] (DVD)
I have seen this a couple of times on TV and really liked it, so wanted a 'proper' copy of it. I got one for Christmas, as a gift, which alas was faulty-the same problem described by previous reviewers of it, the disc froze after about 30 minutes and then started jerking about. Got another copy - alas, same problem. I did ask if the problem had been resolved, before trying again in February and, like a previous reviewer here, was told it had been- I could order with confidence. Err..no. It wasn't third time lucky for me, the disc was still suffering from the same complaint as the previous two, freezing then jerking about 30 minutes or so in. In the end, I returned the disc and thought I'd wait until nearer Christmas to order it again-maybe the problem will be sorted by then. Shame, because it's a great story, but the dodgy disc problem really needs to be sorted out. If you get one that's working properly hang on to it! So five stars for Freddie as a story - but none for the disc!
