Matching the other DVD volumes of the series, I Love Lucy: Season One, Volume Four offers a clear transfer that is a significant improvement over any VHS versions. The picture does contain some minor defects due to its significant age, but they cause few notable problems. The full-frame, black-and-white images are clear and generally effective. This disc also includes a mono transfer that corresponds with expectations for this type of release. The dialogue and music are both easily understandable, which is all one can really want from this type of audio track. The sounds are extremely centralized, but they lack the muddled nature sometimes evident on older television transfers. Volume Four offers slightly less extras than the preceding release, but it still includes several notable features. The most interesting is the entire My Favorite Husband radio show for the Valentine's Day episode, which inspired the television Lucy Plays Cupid entry. It stars Lucille Ball and Richard Denning as Liz and George Cooper in a generic-sounding radio sitcom. Also included is a three-minute behind-the-scenes featurette entitled "Rehearsing the Pilot." It contains a reading of the initial ideas for the show and also presents some production photographs. The remaining supplements include the series' original Philip Morris-dominated opening, a guest cast list (with bios), and several minor flubs.

The fourth volume adds to the collection. Everyone who likes to watch I Love Lucy will love these episodes. I can't wait until I can get the rest of the episodes.
