Lucy Show - Official First Season

Overview

Overview

Lucille Ball proves that her two-year absence from network television has not in any way blunted her comic expertise as The Lucy Show launches its first season. The episodes herein are pleasantly schizophrenic, with widowed mother Lucy Carmichael Ball, of course harvesting new comedy opportunities out of such situations as attracting eligible bachelors, raising money to augment her allowance, and wrestling with the trials and tribulations of single motherhood with daughter Chris Candy Moore and son Jerry Jimmy Garrett, and at the same time capturing the carefree zaniness of the I Love Lucy days, vis-à-vis Lucy's misadventures with best her friend and housemate, divorcée Vivian Bagley, played by Ball's former I Love Lucy co-star Vivian Vance. For her part, Viv Bagley also must be both mother and father to her own kid Sherman Ralph Hart -- who, fortuitously enough, is Jerry Carmichael's best friend. On the "dating" front, things get off to a fine start with the series' second episode, in which Lucy and Viv finagle Jerry's math teacher William Windom into escorting both of them to a Saturday night dance; in later episodes, Lucy will try to win a guy Frank Aletter away from Viv by feigning an interest in classical music, and will go gaga over her new boss John Vivyan when she takes a temporary job as a society columnist. Incidentally, Dick Martin of Rowan & Martin fame is seen throughout this season as Harry Conners, Lucy's next-door neighbor and occasional boyfriend. As for her money-raising schemes, Lucy inaugurates her well-meaning torture of Mr. Barnsahl Charles Lane, the banker handling her late husband's estate, when she accidentally writes a donation check for two thousand dollars and then goes to great and hilarious lengths to cover up the gaping hole in her bank account. And in a classic episode reminiscent of I Love Lucy at its best, Lucy and Viv set up a "factory" in their kitchen to mass-produce Viv's caramel corn recipe. Finally, our heroines gently intrude upon their offspring's private lives by making a big production of waiting for Chris' return from a date and becoming a public spectacle while refereeing Jerry and Ralph's football game; and best of all, Lucy imitates Charlie Chaplin in a comedy sketch staged for Chris' classmates. And on a pure slapstick-force level, few of the Lucy Show episodes can match the hilarity of the first-season episode in which Lucy and Viv become volunteer firemen, or the one in which Lucy takes singing lessons from guest star Hans Conried to qualify for a neighborhood barbershop quartet, or the installment wherein Lucy finds herself "driving" a dump truck. The first-season ratings of The Lucy Show proved beyond doubt that America still loved Lucy: her series ranked as the fourth most popular TV show in the country, sharing this honor with the popular Bonanza.

    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?

    FABULOUS RESTORATION OF LUCY'S SECOND HIT SERIES

    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.
