  1. I do like this one a lot. Aside from its comedic worth, it employs an "A-story" and a "B-story," which became much more common on other shows many years later. I wish it had been employed more on "Here's Lucy."
  2. The 25 best episodes of 'I Love Lucy', ranked (msn.com) The familiar favorites top the lost, but the lower part of the list has shows like "Ricky Thinks He's Getting Bald" while shows like "The Million Dollar Idea," "The Business Manager," "Ethel's Birthday," "Ethel's Home Town" and "Lucy's Schedule" are not in the list.
  3. She's among the very short list of original guests still with us.
  4. They have started to air the “new” episodes, with Ron Howard answering Lucy’s questions. Silly and too gimmicky for me.
  5. The only thing I find annoying is the pretense that the shows involving a particular guests were recorded on different days. "Will you come back tomorrow," etc. Given that she makes it clear her show is a roving one, there is no pretense that it's a live show. So why the pretense about each show being a different day?
  6. I don't know. Only a few pages of the script were viewable online. That's a "Here's Lucy" script. I have an original copy of that one.
  7. On ebay there is a script for an episode called "Lucy Goes Commercial," which from the date of the script was intended for the early part of season three. From the page you can view, the scene with Lucy and Chris appears much like the "Here's Lucy" scene in which Lucy teaches Kim to grocery shop in "Lucy's Working Daughter."

  8. They have edited out the original theme music and Gary Morton's presence altogether. No complaints, though. Whoever thought the entire run of this show would ever be heard again?
  9. According to his profile, he hasn’t visited this site for a month. I hope it’s just a break and he’s not leaving us or worse.
  10. I recently watched a few first season episodes that I had not watched in a long time including "Lucy and the Ex Con" and "Lucy Goes on Strike." Now I remember why I have passed over these so many times. They are not ridiculously bad like "Lucy's Safari" or "Lucy and the Gold Rush," but they have very few good moments. I believe "Strike" was the only script from Mel Diamond and Al Schwartz. I suppose it was another one of those cheap, uninspired "off the market" scripts used
  11. No holiday-themed banner this year. Very impish.
  12. I’m surprised “Hogan’s Heroes” is popular enough to merit two prime-time episodes five nights a week for what seems like ages. I watched as a kid, but I can’t stand it now. Same with “Gomer.”
  13. As “The Best of The Carol Burnett Show: Season 2,” you can see Lucy’s 1970 appearance on Amazon. She’s in the cold open musical number, a sketch in which she and Carol are stage mothers competing to get their daughters an audition, and a parody of “Some Like it Hot.”
  14. I watched a handful of fourth season episodes yesterday including a favorite, "Kim Moves Out." I wanted to watch "Lucy's Replacement," but it's among the batch of episodes that no longer "free" on Amazon Prime. These episodes appear to be viewable for an additional fee. The fee episodes appear to be randomly selected.
