  1. This is on my Christmas list now. But that picture...
  2. On the Home Theater Forum website someone posted that next week CBS will release the first season of "Miss Brooks" as a made on demand DVD set. See post #3577 https://www.hometheaterforum.com/community/threads/is-the-b-w-era-of-tv-on-dvd-slowly-coming-to-an-end.311401/page-179
  3. Nice article. LWL does seem like it would have fit better as part of a TGIF style block of programming. Nevertheless, glad it's finally out. Next I wonder if CBS will do a complete mega set of ILL, LDCH, TLS, and LWL?
  4. "Lucy's Impossible Mission"- Silly story, yet still an entertaining parody of "Mission Impossible". "Lucy the Fixer"- Not much plot, but some of the best work (in my opinion) Lucy and Gale ever did together.
  5. I remember around the time TVLand was getting started there was a commercial where a guy was saying shows that were coming soon to the network and Here's Lucy was one of them. Too bad it never aired. It would have been a good fit for the channel back then.
  6. I decided to skip ordering online and go the brick and mortar route. No luck at Walmart, Target, or FYE. My little scavenger hunt ended at Barnes and Noble where they had one copy marked at 40% off. Funny how a few years ago I wouldn't have given anything colorized the time of day. Looking forward to watching Redhead Tales since I couldn't make it to a theater last week.
  7. I enjoy "Envious" also. My mom, who is at best a casual fan, still says "It's a moo-moo" when she thinks something is strange. My favorite moment is after the "martians" leave the apartment and Ethel says to call the police and all Lucy can do is scream. It's one of those funny little moments to me.
  8. My dad started taping episodes of ILL for me off Nick at Nite in the mid 90s. He also started recording a few episodes of LDCH and TLS after I showed an interest in those series. That was around the time Nick pulled TLS so I didn't get many episodes of that program. Years later I transferred from VHS to DVD several of the clever promos Nick at Nite did for ILL and TLS. When I went to my first Jamestown festivals in the early 2000s I paid an embarrassing amount of money for those Columbia House videos of TLS. But I hadn't seen most of those episodes, so I felt justified haha. Suncoast Video store came along in the late 90s/early 2000s and sold official VHS releases of ILL and public domain sets of TLS. I also got the individual volumes of ILL season one from there and the first "Best Of" HL DVD release as well. That was a great store during the golden age of TV on DVD releases. So that pretty much sums up my history of collecting Lucy on video.
  9. I thought it was insulting for them to theorize she had a drinking problem, as well. I found it kind of humorous that they actually spent time talking about headaches caused by her wigs.
  10. If you expected tabloid tv, you wouldn't be far off. Topics ranging from her teenage "mystery illness" to the "loser interview" were brought up. And I don't want to give too much away, but she was a heavy smoker. 🙄
  11. On a morbid note, tonight at 8pm EST on the Reelz Channel there's a program called, "Autopsy: The Last Hours of Lucille Ball".
  12. I found this photo at a local flea market today. The autograph looks authentic to me. If not, I still think it was a pretty good deal for $8.
  13. Dick Martin was also around during the first year of The Lucy Show. That could've been enough time for him to notice it himself.
  14. I had a bad cold over the weekend and decided to have a "Lucy" binge that included episodes from the first 3 seasons of HL. One thing I noticed is that all but 2 or 3 episodes I watched (and are some of my favorites) did not feature any guest stars. HL had it's share of good guest stars, musical numbers, etc... However I think it shines the most when it functions as a domestic situation comedy.
  15. As far as episode selections of Life with Lucy, I'd switch out "Sax Symbol" with "Love Among the Two by Fours". It had some touching moments, to me anyways. At least about one third of the series will have an official release. Who has the rights? CBS?
