Here's Lucy: a smash hit in India?


Recommended Posts

I just found this interview with Bollywood star Tusshar Kapoor and he cites Here's Lucy as his favourite television comedy. His wording makes me think that I Love Lucy wasn't as big a hit in the sub-continent as it's successor:

 

Here's Lucy is an exception I've made into these top ten favourite comedies I like. This one's a television sitcom starring the brilliance of Lucille Ball. I remember as a kid I used to see it on television in the late seventies and early eighties. Who can forget the character Lucy Carter? She was known world over by this name. I recall the most famous episode was the one where Elizabeth Taylor guest starred. It was a great slapstick sitcom of all times and my favourite too.

Lucy was so popular in India that the most popular name for any little baby girl was LUCY. I'm surprised that they tolerated the episodes that made fun of cows.

Speaking of 'India' - ahem - On Melody Thomas Scott's soap, Y & R, her 'daughter', Victoria, named her 'adopted', red-headed baby girl, Lucy. This was last 'fall'; and, I was waiting for someone else to mention it; but, since NO ONE HAS.... :marionstrong:

And fifty years from now they'll show Big Bang Theory that even has an Indian character.
