The Best of Bill


Recommended Posts

Since it's Emmy night, I was wondering if you had to select one episode from each season to submit to the Emmy committee for the Lucy cast members what would it be? We've done this for Lucy in the past, but how about the supporting players.


(I know that in the early years the nominations were based on the calendar year rather than the TV season, but I'm just doing it my season here).


These would be my submissions for Bill for Best Supporting Actor.


I Love Lucy:

1951-1952: Ricky Asks For a Raise

1952-1953: The Black Eye

1953-1954: Too Many Crooks

1954-1955: Mertz and Kurtz

1955-1956: Second Honeymoon

1956-1957: Desert Island


The Lucille Ball-Desi Arnaz Show:

1957-1958: Lucy Wins a Racehorse

1958-1959: Lucy Makes Room For Danny

1959-1960: The Ricardos Go to Japan


What would you choose?

I was watching "Getting Ready" last night and this really was a totally Fred-central episode. He was hilarious! When Ricky's in the back seat and he goes to open the old car's door-and it pops right off in his hand, Bill says "PUT THAT BACK!!! :angry: " with such ridiculous conviction that we actually believe that HE believes the car is a good one! :lol: He cracked me up in Ricky Asks for a Raise when he's dressed in drag. :lol: I think Fred Mertz is actually my favorite character on "I Love Lucy". :P
