    Love Lucy

    I Love Lucy, A Timeless Classic
    First Season
    It all started in the late 1940s, when Lucille Ball played a silly and comic housewife, Liz Cooper, on My Favorite Husband radio sitcom. During that time, television sales were on the high rise. So naturally, CBS decided to move the show on television. Ball agreed, but there was one little problem – she wanted to get rid of her radio husband, Richard Denning, and cast her real husband, Desi Arnaz. Arnaz was a Cuban bandleader continuously on the tour, and Ball was in Hollywood pursuing her own career. Their marriage was on the rocks, this would be her last attempt to save her marriage. CBS, however, ridiculed the idea. All American girl married to a Cuban bandleader, this would push away television viewers. Ball decided to prove CBS wrong.
    During their summer vacation, Ball and Arnaz toured together putting on a live act performance created by the My Favorite Husband’s writers. The act was popular and well-reviewed. Eventually CBS agreed to fund a pilot starring the couple. The first pilot was filled in 1951. It was a victory. CBS decided to pick up the show. There was another problem, Ball and Arnaz wanted to stay in Hollywood and raise the family. In fact, Ball was already pregnant. During that time, almost all live shows were performed east in New York using the kinescope process, which had poor audio and video effect, and allowed later airing in the west. With her already difficult pregnancy, Ball and Arnaz came up with a solution. Their idea was to have the show filmed like a movie, rather than to be broadcast live allowing shows to be rerun. This was very costly. To stay in Hollywood, the couple agreed to significantly condensed salaries and reserved ownership of the show. This would eventually make them into the first television millionaire stars, and the system devised back in 1951 by Freund is still the basis for most sitcoms used today.
    I Love Lucy, the first complete season contains all 35 episodes and the pilot on DVD sold today. A rare seen pilot feared lost, until the copy was found in 1980, and first aired in 1990 by CBS. It’s all about schemes and getting into showbiz. The show is about a married couple living in a converted brownstone apartment complex on the east side of Manhattan. Ricky (Desi Arnaz) is the orchestra leader in the Tropicana nightclub, and Lucy (Lucille Ball) a smart and wacky redhead housewife who always tries to join her husband in show business. Ricky, of course, simply just wants her to be a housewife, cook, clean and fetch his slippers when he comes home. On the show they are joined by their two close friends, former vaudeville performers and their landlords, Ethel and Fred Mertz (Vivian Vance and William Frawley). Two families are close friends, but often split on gender roles when a problem arouses.
    The first regular episode to be filmed was actually the fourth to be aired “Lucy Thinks Ricky Is Trying To Murder Her”. The first few episodes are still not as polished as those to come. The writers were still trying to fully develop the script to fit with the characters, to hit their marks. Season one comprises of a few classical episodes as “The Freezer” in which Lucy and Ethel’s scheme to buy a walk in freezer goes totally twisted, the “Diet” in which Lucy starves herself to fit into size 12, and my least favorite “The Séance” where Lucy pretends to talk to dead.
    One of the highlights of the first season
