  1. Lucy Sightings!

    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.
  2. Here's Lucy 50th Anniversary

    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.
  3. 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?
  4. I thought the selection of Here's Lucy episodes was odd too. None of the gems from season six, no episodes with Vivian, etc... That being said, I like the idea of these volumes and will probably end up double or with some episodes triple dipping!
  5. Copies of each episode of Life were Lucy were donated to the Lucy Desi Center. I don't remember if they were the master tapes. Why were shows filmed but edited onto tape back then considering the decline in picture quality?
  6. Specific "Lucy" Memories

    Some of my fondest Lucy memories are when my gram would babysit me at her house. Nick at Nite would almost always be on. The Lucy Show must have been on past my bedtime because I mostly remember watching it at her house. Two episodes I vividly remember watching are "Lucy Meets a Millionaire " and "Lucy Discovers Wayne Newton" (with gram gushing about Newton the whole time).
  7. "Roseanne" - 2018 Revival on ABC

    It would be a mistake to have Darlene be the main character. Frankly, I don't think Sara Gilbert could carry a show on her own. With heavyweights like John Goodman and Laurie Metcalf already on board, it needs to be a true ensemble comedy for it to make it past its first year. Also, I hope they don't kill off Roseanne Conner. That seems too easy. Plus, although the chances are slim, the door should be open a crack for at least a cameo somewhere down the road.
  8. "Roseanne" - 2018 Revival on ABC

    The repeat tonight will be replaced by an episode of The Middle. The season has already been pulled from Hulu and starting tomorrow the Viacom networks will pull reruns of the original series.
  9. "Roseanne" - 2018 Revival on ABC

    I agree that Roseanne's line delivery is, at times, more restrained. She's still sarcastic and snarky, but more subdued, if that makes sense. To me, it seems like in the last episode or two the show is finding it's footing again.
  10. New book-"Lucy Comes Home"

    After a 3 week journey my book finally made it here. This is definitely a must-have. Absolutely remarkable.
  11. New book-"Lucy Comes Home"

    Nice timeline! I'm interested in the route of the Forever Darling Special, especially to see if it went through my neck of the woods here in PA. I've found that it made stops in Pittsburgh and Philadelphia, but don't know if it stopped anywhere in between. My copy hasn't arrived yet and it's starting to piss me off!
  12. New book-"Lucy Comes Home"

    I remember seeing the author's mother when the center had an event commemorating the 50th anniversary of Forever Darling (one of my favorite festival events I attended). I'll definitely bring my copy in August. Are there any color photos? She looked sensational in the ones I saw at the Fenton.
  13. There's a new book out about Lucy and Desi's trip to Jamestown for the premiere of Forever Darling. Looking forward to the pictures! Right now, Amazon has it for $32.75, down from the retail price of $50. https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/0998747467/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1521067672&sr=8-1&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_FMwebp_QL65&keywords=lucy+comes+home
  14. Lucy Sightings!

    Today on CBS News Sunday Morning, critic Rex Reed mentioned about attending an Oscars party at Polly Bergen's house where he watched the show in Bergen's bed with Paul Newman on one side and Lucy on the other.
  15. Here's a very short clip from "Together for Christmas" that someone recently colorized.
