Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
Although the 1953-54 episodes of this groundbreaking sitcom lacked the manic quality of their best-known predecessors, the third season of Lucy (which finally saw the show reach No. 1 in the ratings) contains its share of classic moments. In "Lucy and Ethel Buy a New Dress," for example, the pals perform their memorable duet of Cole Porter's "Friendship." During "Lucy Tells the Truth," the madcap redhead manages to insult her friends and get into all kinds of trouble when she wagers that she can go 24 hours without telling a lie. "The French Revue" uses Ricky's new show as the latest backdrop for Lucy's ongoing efforts to break into show business; this time she disguises herself as a chorus girl and winds up onstage. In "Lucy Has Her Eyes Examined," she actually wrangles her way into the floor show, but the drops she's been taking for eyestrain make her vision blurry, and her jitterbug number goes hilariously awry. "Ricky Minds the Baby" rates special mention as the only show in the run not performed before a live audience, because the producers were afraid that the toddler playing Little Ricky wouldn't be able to perform on cue. Season 3 is light on guest stars, but "The Charm School" gives a marvelous part to Natalie Schafer, who would play "Lovey" on Gilligan's Island. And country singer Tennessee Ernie Ford, then just beginning his ascent to stardom, turns up in a two-parter as Lucy's country-bumpkin cousin. By the end of 1954 the sitcom's formula would show signs of aging, and Season 4 offered a change of locale with the Ricardos and Mertzes off to California for an extended stay. But a good number of the Season 3 shows are first-rate, and even the weaker ones are well worth watching.

    I Love Lucy!!

    I absolutely love this show! I have EVERY season of I Love Lucy. They have been digitally remastered, so they look, and sound even better than they do on tv. Wonderful for the whole family. True clean comedy! Barnes and Noble was great, ordered, and received it within 3 days.
