The first episode of LazyTown was shown in the United States not long ago. Most of the reviews there are positive and it is clear that people think the idea is good. However, some question the effects of the show, while others go so far as to say that it can change the lives of young children. We ask at the end of the episode.
After the episodes about LazyTown were shown in the United States, several reviews of the episode have appeared on foreign websites. One of them, hollywoodreporter.com, published one of these not so long ago where the idea is said to be good and fun.
“By mixing live action, puppets and cartoons, the show manage to do their part to get the snack eaters who are stuck on their sofas to move a little” is one of the things that the review says. There is also an emphasis on the fact that the episodes are clearly intended to get people to exercise and get interested in sports and it’s just said to be quite successful.
“However, these are clearly not shows for teenagers or children who are reaching that age” says Hollywood Reporter Marilyn Moss.” The main character of the show is the eight-year-old Stephanie (Julianna Rose Mauriello), a young girl who has a lot of imagination and is a good friend of the town’s health hero, Sportacus (Magnús Scheving). Together they fight against the evil enemy – the lazy Robbie Rotten (Stefán Karl). “Robbie spends his time being lazy and eating fast food” Marilyn added.
Overall, the show gets good reviews, especially for the plot, because as everyone knows, Americans, just like Icelanders, have obesity and inactivity on their mind.
“This show is the best entertainment for the youngest age group, apart from having a certain educational value that could even change the lives of many young children,” are Marilyn’s final words in her review of LazyTown.
