What episodes are you watching on "I Love Lucy"?

Recommended Posts

I had the opportunity to watch some of my ILL Blu-Rays on one of those six-foot, curved TVs; the really 'spensive kind. It looked less amazing than I thought it would. It makes me appreciate Freund, Hickox, et al's work all the more. The show really was shot beautifully to be viewed on a smaller TV screen. Thanks to the upscaling from the high-tech setup, the Blu Rays, which look as clear as possible on my TV, actually turned out to have a lot of little specks and spots poking around. Later in the night, we watched Dancing Star/Harpo Marx (one of my buddies who was over is a big Marx Brothers fan and had wanted to see it) on DVD and it looked embarrassingly fuzzy. Oddly enough, none of this struck me as noticeable for the colorized movie theater engagement. Maybe you don't gotta have glorious Technicolor, breathtaking CinemaScope and stereophonic sound.

Which DVD did you watch Harpo Marx on, the season 4 set or the colorised disc? The newer ILL discs use higher compression than the earlier ones, so the picture isn’t as sharp.

It was the original DVD. I was the only real nerd about that stuff in the room, so nobody else really noticed.

I understand, I’m particular about those things as well. It drives me nuts how many people out there don’t set their televisions to the right aspect ratio, and are happy to watch pictures that are completely distorted.

You get used to it.  When I put the TV to the correct 4:3 aspect ratio now, everyone looks too thin!

Wth those settings, Viv must really be a sight from behind in her knit suit!

A question for the experts: when does Little Ricky's name first officially come up? Today I realized that I don't remember a scene where they decide to name the baby after his father. I don't recall it happening in "Lucy Goes to The Hospital", maybe in one of the wraparound segments done for the flashback episodes?

Good question. I think the first time the baby’s name was mentioned was in the flashback opening of The Audition rerun.
