Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
More than a half century after its debut, I Love Lucy still reigns as the most important -- and perhaps the funniest -- situation comedy ever to grace the airwaves. Aside from being a perfect vehicle for the sheer comic genius of Lucille Ball, the show firmly established the sitcom template that remains the television standard to this day. Volume 8 of the show's first season includes the episodes "Cuban Pals," "The Freezer," "The Publicity Agent" and the unforgettable "Lucy Does A TV Commercial," wherein the redhead poses as Lucy McGillicuddy, lands a role in a commercial for Vitameatavegamin, then gets drunk during rehearsals on the alcoholic tonic. As always, the big-dreaming Lucy is the quintessential sitcom protagonist, and these early episodes provide plenty of laughs and promise bigger laughs to come. The DVD includes flubs, special footage, a behind-the-scenes featurette and a radio show.
