  1. The classic episode of The Lucy Show where Lucy goes golfing with her new boyfriend Gary. A true gem not to be missed!! A true must see for all Gary fans the world over. :gary: :marionstrong: :HALKING:
  2. When Lucy broke her leg the writers did give Lucie and Gale bigger roles in the shows until Lucy's leg got better. I have always thought that Gale worked so well with Lucy. Gale was such a great actor. He added so much good energy to The Lucy Show and Here's Lucy.
  3. One episode of Here's Lucy that seems dull is the one where Kim moves into her new apartment. Lucy and Gale are in the employment office for a short time and then the rest of the episode features Kim in her new apartment. Not enough of Lucy in that episode.
  4. I know that the flashback parts are left in black and white to create a memory effect. But I wish they had colorized the flashback parts. I know that we are very lucky to have 3 shows in color. Now if we can only push CBS to color the rest of the shows. Maybe good sales of the Christmas dvd will help get CBS to continue the color process.
  5. The best thing about this new dvd is that CBS gives us both black and white and color show options. We have color for the color fans and black and white for the black and white fans. This new dvd should please color and black and white I Love Lucy fans.
  6. Just was asking if anyone has any new news on the upcoming 2014 I Love Lucy Blu ray discs?
  7. Just got the color dvd today at Wal-Mart. And what can I say but amazing just amazing!! The colors are so clear and bright. The shows look like they might have been filmed in color not black and white. The color job is just so good. To everyone involved in the production of this dvd I say thank you for doing a great job. After seeing the three color shows makes me want to see the entire series in color. CBS please consider colorizing the entire series plus the Lucy Desi Comedy Hours and the first season of The Lucy Show. On the dvd the opening and closing credits feature a pink heart background. Seems I remember Dann Cahn say that the heart background was to be blue. Seems he used the same blue title backgound he used for Forever Darling. Am I correct about this? Also why did CBS not use the original opening and closing credits on the 1989 and 1990 Christmas show airings? They had new computer created credits in 1989 and 1990. Now looking forward to the December 20th CBS airing of I Love Lucy.
  8. So if Wal-Mart has the dvd out early before the official release date of Tuesday November 5, has anyone bought the dvd at Wal-Mart yet? Just wondering if Wal-Mart might have put it on the shelf early by mistake like Target did. So anyone bought it from Wal-Mart early yet?
  9. 50,000 posts wow! Claude that is alot of posts. Congratulations on your 50,000th post. The color screenshots of the color christmas show are amazing. I would love to see the whole series in color. Time will tell if CBS decides to color the entire series.
  10. So the colors of the christmas show have been improved? This dvd sounds like a winner. :D
  11. Well it might not have been the Target stockers fault. But the Target media and electronics department managers should know better. They should not put out media ahead of the release dates and then refuse a sale. But it really does not matter now Target has the dvd for sale now on its Target release date of today Tuesday October 29. Trying to decide on colors for the I Love Lucy color shows must be a hard and interesting job.
  12. Since Target has the permission to sell the dvd a week early on Tuesday October 29 one would think that they would not make such a silly mistake by putting the dvd out before the Target release date. They must have some clueless dvd stockers at their stores.
  13. Target should treat us Lucy fans with respect and let us buy any Lucy dvd that they put out early by mistake.
  14. tjw I am glad that your local Target sold you the dvd early. I was at my local Target Saturday October 26 and saw the dvd on the new tv show release shelf. Well I was so excited to see the dvd out early. But my excitement turned to sadness very fast. Target refused to sell me the dvd because it had been put on the shelf to early by mistake. The checkout computer would not accept the dvd sale. I asked the cashier to try and override the computer but no the cashier refused. I told the cashier that they had about 10 dvds on the shelf with the price of $12.99 shown on the shelf. But no no no they would not sell me the dvd. They quickly removed the dvds and price tag until the official Target release date of Tuesday October 29. I wonder if all Target stores have put the dvd out early by mistake? Well Target made this Lucy fan mad, angry, sad and most of all shocked that they would not sell me the dvd. But I am glad tjw that your Target was nice enough to sell you the dvd early.
  15. If I am correct Lucille Ball Productions owns the rights to Here's Lucy. So Lucie and Desi Jr. should now own the show rights. Warner Brothers has the rerun tv rights. The Best of Here's Lucy dvd set was released by Paul Brownstein Productions and Shout Factory. And the Here's Lucy dvds are released by MPI.
  16. It might be that CBS thinks the Lucy fans would not buy the show on dvd. But if they think Lucy fans would not buy the show on dvd they would be wrong. As a Lucy fan I want anything that she did to be on dvd. Life With Lucy on dvd would be great for any Lucy fan's dvd collection. So CBS give us Life With Lucy on dvd!!!
  17. I think that CBS owns the Aaron Spelling library of tv shows. So since Life With Lucy was a Lucille Ball and Aaron Spelling joint venture it would be in the Aaron Spelling tv library. Now if CBS does own the Spelling library it should own Life With Lucy. I sure hope that CBS changes their mind on a dvd release of the show. I want to see this show on dvd.
  18. You are right. Life With Lucy will be on DVD at some point. Now I will just have to wait for it to be released. Glad you like the avatar.
  19. I would like to see Life With Lucy on DVD also. Maybe we will get it on DVD in the near future. We can always hope.
  20. CBS better be glad they got to have I Love Lucy on their tv network in 1951. It could have went to NBC or some other network.
  21. Now if CBS would agree to sell the show Lucie and Desi Jr. could always buy it from them. But what would CBS want for the show say about a billion dollars?
  22. $20 million annually. That is good for a 62 year old show. But Lucille Ball fans know that she is priceless and will be forever loved.
  23. Well then with NBC having color and CBS still using black and white, seems that CBS would have been to cheap to allow the show to be in color. I am sure CBS had alot to do with the black and white film decision. And CBS did not start full color broacasts till 1965.That CBS was still in black and white in 1962 might be the reason the first season of The Lucy Show is in black and white.
  24. I wonder just how much money CBS makes in a year now on I Love Lucy? Any guess to how much CBS made on it in 2012? And I think Lucie and Desi Jr. own the rights to Lucy and Desi images plus Here's Lucy and the 1970's Lucille Ball Specials.
  25. Correct Lucy was made for color. Color film was more expensive at the time and color television was just starting at the time. If Desi knew in 1951 that 62 years later the show would still be in reruns maybe he would have filmed the show in color. I say the reasons the show was done in black and white was cost and color tv just starting in the 1950's. But Desi was smart to use film to record the show. Desi was ahead of his time by using film for the show.
