  1. 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.
  2. Carole would have been an amazing choice, I think she knew Lucy well enough to sing it “as Lucy.”
  3. 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.
  4. 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”?
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. I've been to Target pretty much once a week since the week after Christmas and haven't seen a copy either.
  8. 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.
  9. I think it's more fear that sales weren't high enough to merit a season two release rather than simple impatience.
  10. 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.
  11. I wonder how marketable a book would be for these shows. Not that I wouldn't love them. I'd really love another scrapbook, or how about two! One for Lucy, one for Desi. Perhaps a biography focusing on growing up in Jamestown and the New York years. Another focusing on the post-HL years. Aside from Tom's book, we don't have many big, glossy photo books focusing on Lucy, of all years. Garbo and Dietrich have a lot of these, 300+ page books loaded with full page photos, dazzling shots and some showing the ladies in unguarded moments. Integrate some bio for the casual fan who needs it... Re-release the coloring books! Both the vintage and Watson editions. Was there ever a more lovely book than Rick Carl's paper doll book? I treasure it. And I'd love to see it and the vintage doll books re-released. Seeing A Book at an affordable price might be nice.
  12. Michael Stern has posted on Facebook that Amy has passed away.
  13. A friend of mine works at a Target here... Corporate has given the American employees the impression that they opened too many stores in Canada and that's the big problem. Interesting to read some of the Canadians here say otherwise. Let me know if you can't find a copy, Brock. I'll see if I can snag one for you.
