  1. Lucy is getting the Golden Book treatment this fall! This is terrific, a great way to introduce her to kids and it’s sure to be a fun little book for us die hards, too! Lucille Ball: A Little Golden Book Biography https://www.amazon.com/dp/0593482646/ref=cm_sw_r_awdo_86974JZKQ2XGN9HWHHVF
  2. I’m watching Gilmore Girls and there’s a small wealth of Lucy references sprinkled throughout the series. Tonight’s is especially fun and obscure, I wonder how many people have heard this and thought “what?” Lorelai is using small trees to hide a boat in her garage, she and Sookie are joking about sneaking more trees and Lorelai says “Great! Then I’ll hop a fence and get Richard Widmark to sign my grapefruit.” You can find this in season 5, episode 10, the scene begins around 26:50 and lasts maybe 30 seconds.
  3. At one of the August Birthday Festivals (probably ‘03) I had the completely bonkers experience of sitting in front of Jimmy and Wanda during the auction. I had no idea who they were, but after overhearing bits of conversation one of my parents turned and asked if they knew Lucy personally, and they introduced themselves. They were insanely generous with their time, it didn’t even phase them that I had lots of questions and wanted pictures and autographs. It’s still very surreal to me to have not only been in their presence, but to have been given their time so generously (all while sitting in the venue Lucy had sat in so many times growing up). That weekend is full of so many cherished memories, but getting to speak with Jimmy and Wanda will forever be my highlight. I am very saddened to hear of his passing, between my in person experience and following him on Facebook it seems like he was a very lovely man. My condolences to his family.
  4. I’ve been watching The Nanny which has so many Lucy sightings. Probably my favorite is the night before their wedding Fran and Maxwell (in separate locations) are seen watching an episode of I Love Lucy.
  5. Carole would have been an amazing choice, I think she knew Lucy well enough to sing it “as Lucy.”
  6. Anyone know what “Los Angeles department store” was used for filming? I always assumed those scenes were done on a sound stage. I appreciated this reviewer’s comments about Lucy’s singing and specifically that it’s her interpretations which make her so special for the role. As much as I do like Lansbury, I never got the warmth and heart from her recording.
  7. I especially loved the “two women living on the edge.” 😂 Thank you for sharing this video! I admittedly skipped through portions but man did Nick at Nite really go all out or what? I feel like I started watching a little later than this era, but it reminds me of how psyched their ads would get me. Anyone else remember the commercial with a song that went something like “two I Love Lucys in a row, this is followed by a Lucy-Desi Comedy Hour. Every Saturday niiiight”?
  8. https://theplotthickens.tcm.com/season-three/ Lucy’s season now has a page! I’m very curious who the 50 people interviewed are not to mention any “surprising revelations.” As a side note, I’ve been wishing old Hollywood podcast “You Must Remember This” would cover Lucy is some form. The host, Karina Longworth, goes above and beyond in their research, engaging narration, music, etc. Highly recommend everyone check out that podcast as well.
  9. I hate to say it, and I'm prepared for a barrage of comments, but the blu-ray sets were majorly overpriced. Now I understand a lot of hard work and dedication went into both sets, truly I do. But you can't tell me they couldn't have been more reasonably priced in the $40-50 range upon release, not when season one now sits with a $25 price tag on Amazon. I'm sorry, but when you can get virtually any season of the show on DVD for $10-15, why would most even think twice? I consider myself a tremendously hardcore fan, but money is tight right now and I haven't been able to justify the purchases. I'm more than bummed the sets won't continue, if only because it was a planned further purchase and one I sincerely looked forward to. I wonder, when they originally released season one at 4 episodes a disc, each disc selling for around $10, were there sales issues? What (seriously) brilliant mind helped move the show in the direction of complete series sets? Shame the same can't be done in this case.
  10. I've been to Target pretty much once a week since the week after Christmas and haven't seen a copy either.
  11. I don't know if the HD episodes are being used for syndication, but they're all available on Hulu! Now that this set has settled into the $40 price range I may make the leap and buy it....only begrudgingly because I know I'll just have to have the complete series set when it's all said and done.
  12. I think it's more fear that sales weren't high enough to merit a season two release rather than simple impatience.
  13. I'll probably buy it. To be honest, For The Love of Lucy and the I Love Lucy Book of Trivia are two of my favorite, most referenced Lucy books. But, it really sounds about as useful as that teeny tiny I Love Lucy Guide To Life book.
