Custom "Best Episodes" Collections


Recommended Posts

So we all know that whenever we see a "best of" DVD collection, the term "best" needs to be taken with a grain of salt. What might be considered the best by those selecting the episodes may not be the case for some of the fans. It's all very subjective.

 

If we could assemble our own "Best of Lucy" sets, which episodes would you pick? Here are mine (since MPI has been using 7 as their number, I'll choose 7 episodes for each)

 

I Love Lucy

1) Lucy's Schedule

2) Ricky Asks for a Raise

3) Ricky & Fred Are TV Fans

4) The Business Manager

5) Getting Ready

6) Lucy Learns to Drive

7) Off to Florida

 

The Lucy Show

1) Lucy & Viv Are Volunteer Firemen

2) Lucy & Viv Put in a Shower

3) The Loophole in the Lease

4) Lucy Takes a Job at the Bank

5) Lucy & The Countess

6) Lucy & The Countess Have a Horse Guest

7) Lucy & The Lost Star

 

Here's Lucy

1) Lucy is Matchmaker

2) Lucy & Carol Burnett (Secretary Beautiful)

3) Lucy Protects Her Job

4) Lucy & Flip Go Legit

5) With Viv as a Friend...

6) Goodbye Mrs. Hips

7) Milton Berle is Life of the Party

Here’s Lucy:

 

· Lucy’s Working Daughter

· Lucy and Lawrence Welk

· Lucy and Carol Burnett (Secretary Beautiful)

· With Viv as A Friend, Who Needs an Enemy?

· Lucy and Harry’s Tonsils

· Lucy Loses Her Cool

So hard to name just seven even with “Here’s Lucy,” for which I could name a dozen or two.
