    Finally, The Lucy Show on DVD!

    Lucille Ball and Vivian Vance are wonderful, and this first season contains some of their best moments. I especially love the vintage commercials done by cast members at the end of most episodes. The commercials are woven into the plot lines, which make them very amusing. The episodes are full-length and contain footage cut from syndication. The special features are also good. I highly recommend this for any Lucille Ball fan.

    You'll Love It!

    If you grew up watching Lucy in the early 60's, you'll love this collection. It's great to see a comedy show again that does not rely on sarcastic, put-down humor to be funny. I'll watch these episodes again and again and will look forward to the release of season two.

    Great DVD Set - but where is Garrett interview??

    I have long awaited an official release of "The Lucy Show" as I am especially a fan of the early season episodes with Lucy and Viv in Danfield. The episodes after Lucy moves to LA are fine, but the guest stars just can't compete with the antics of Lucille Ball and Vivian Vance. This DVD set is superb in all respects, and I highly recommend it! However, I do have one question -- the box cover notes interviews with Lucie Arnaz and Jimmy Garrett (he played Lucy's son on the show). In the individual DVD menus in the inner packaging, it is noted that the Arnaz interview is on disc one (and it is and is terrific) and that the Garrett interview is on disc four. I can't find the Garrett interview ANYWHERE in the set -- was it left out by mistake? Don't let this sway you from purchasing the set, but I'm wondering if I got a DVD set where it was left off by mistake or are all the sets missing this special feature?

    In the words of Ethel Mertz, "What a treasure trove". However, we aren't talking about Ethel here. It's all VIV, and it's all LUCY. This set of Season 1 is superb!! I've only been through the Bonus Features on Disc 1 thru 3, and the episodes on Disc 1 (personal favorite is the Kangaroo costume). Loved the Lucie Arnaz interview, and still waiting to see the Jimmy Garrett interview. This set was made with literal "tender loving care". Options to view with original broadcast openings, closings & cast commercials, or in a regular rerun format with restore titles for DVD. Great bonus features!! The picture quality is superb for black & white, the last "Lucy" programs in this format. Granted, CBS ran The Lucy Show in Black & White until the fall season of 1965 when the locale moved to California. However, Seasons 2 and on were filmed in color. Tom Watson and crew who worked on this deserve large pats on the back for their excellent work. With all this positive feedback being received, I hope Paramount has Season 2 ready to roll. Bravo!! Get yours now.

    By the way, check your history. According to official records, 2009 marks Vivian Vance's 100th Birthday. This is a nice way to celebrate.
