Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
The 1955-56 season opens with the Ricardos and the Mertzes near the end of their stay in Hollywood. Lucy goes on a frantic search for souvenirs to bring home and, at the famous Grauman's Chinese Theatre, hatches an insane plot to make off with the loosened cement slab containing John Wayne's footprints. The Duke himself makes an appearance in this classic two-parter. The bulk of the season takes place overseas: when Ricky's band is signed for an extended European tour, Lucy and the Mertzes tag along, bringing their patented brand of mirthful mayhem to numerous foreign settings. One hilarious episode, set in Paris, stars Charles Boyer as himself; Lucy fancies that he's interested in her after a chance meeting at a café. Another memorable show finds the Ricardos and Mertzes snowbound at a mountaintop cabin in the Swiss Alps, being "entertained" by a Bavarian band. But the Season 5 standout -- and one of the best-remembered episodes in the entire series -- is "Lucy's Italian Movie," in which the erstwhile Miss Lucille McGillicuddy is hired by a famous Italian director to star in his latest film. One of the scenes requires her to stomp grapes underfoot while standing in a wine vat, but she's unprepared for what happens next. This sequence alones justifies the purchase of this box set, which shows yet again how skilled writers and directors kept the series fresh by shifting locale and varying the types of situations in which Lucy and Ethel found themselves.

I have watched I LOve LUCY since I was a kid, I'm now 29 years old and I still enjoy her. My four year old daughter enjoys watching I Love Lucy and spends her time watching the dvds over and over again. I love wacthing the smile on her face, just brings me back with I enjoyed watching as a kid and still enjoy it. My family and I will enjoy it for years to come. Wacth them all. Also should pick up the Lucy show.

If you ever seen the "I Love Lucy" I recommend it. I have purchased season 1-4 and I can't wait for season 5. Lucy gets to be funnier and funnier in each season. And I love the relationship that she has with her husband Ricky Ricardo.

What can you say about Lucy that hasn't been said? She is funny! Lucy and Ethel show us, you can be funny and have crazy ideas at any age---not just the young. Europe didn't know what had "landed" when the four of them arrived. Who could forget Lucy and Ethel's flour sack designer clothes from Paris? These shows have been very useful in seeing how "life" was before all the computers, cell phones and people took proud in their appearance. It has opened discussions with my 18 year old daughter as to how her Grandparents and I grew-up. It shows us how life use to be and yet, we are still the same. We still want the same things from life: love, respect, fun and adventure.
