I couldn't find a "Drafted" or a "Mertz and Kurtz" anywhere on this list. So something is making some sense. I don't understand the Superman episode making the top ten either? The exclusion of "Ricky Needs An Agent" is just blasphemous. Is anyone a member of the I.M.D.?

IMD? Intellectually moronic and demented you mean? These ratings make no sense as any list of favorites never do either, you have to have CRITICS, professionals who know what they're talking about, John Q Public are just offering their opinions and never get it right and critics don't usually fare much better anyway. It's all subject to opinions, personal preferences, for a show that was seen in infancy and even those opinions change over the decades. This is like comparing the Emmy and Oscar nominations to the ones for the People's choice awards.

I don't think you guys are understanding these ratings are phenomeonally high! This is not a bunch of Lucy fans per se, this is the general public rating them. It's like voting for politicans. Nobody is ever going to get 100 percent of the vote (a "10"). That I LOVE LUCY was able to get an ultra-rare "9" on one episode is extraordinary and also amazing that 50 episodes received a "8" vote (excellent) and a total of 109 received a "7" or better (very good), you are not going to find very few tv series that will be able to have so many episodes with such high numbers.

Yeah, their ratings HERE make as much sense as the ones for Lucy's movies in that other thread. Although many in the top five are correct. Lucy and Superman as a top one, i think NOT!

I agree Superman is overrated and even "The Celebrity Next Door" (the only Lucy-Desi Comedy Hour in the top 100!) but these were probably given a boost by Tallulah Bankhead and Superman/George Reeves fans. I consider the top 10 a pretty good representation otherwise, although Harpo Marx should have been in there (just missed), also "The Million Dollar Idea" and "Mr and Mrs TV Show" are rated a little too low for my liking.

 

With 50 getting an "excellent rating" of 8 and another 59 receiving "very good" rating of 7, they are hardly belittling the episodes, merely listing them in their personal order of preference. Make your own lists, there are only 50 slots in anybody's top 50 - surely you will also leave out many brillant episodes!
