DVD TV Show Reviews
This is one of those classic shows that has been around
forever. Everyone has seen a zillion of the episodes since they were kids.
It was one of the first great comedies of television and starred the first major
comedienne, Lucille Ball. The show was on six years, so this collection of
4th season shows is from when it was still going strong.
For some reason, they felt they needed to change things in
the show, so in this season, everyone heads to Hollywood to launch Ricky's movie
career. This gave them a lot of opportunity to have many Hollywood guest
stars and exciting things going on. What really made the show great was
the chemistry and humor between real-life marrieds Lucy and Desi (Ricky).
If you like slapstick comedy, Lucy is right up there with
the greats like Laurel and Hardy and The Three Stooges. Any age can enjoy these
shows and will doubtless continue to enjoy them for years to come.
There are many great features on this disk set, including
bloopers, guest cast info, and some episodes from Lucy's Radio Show.
