Lucille Ball must be the funniest female comedian in the history of television. She had, of course, made numerous Hollywood movies, but it was in television that she became famous as Lucy in the shows 'I Love Lucy', 'The Lucy Show' and later 'Here's Lucy'. I personally prefer this show to 'I Love Lucy'. I do not think that Desi Arnaz had the most engaging personality. Perhaps his Cuban accent did not help and, of course, you had to appreciate his brand of music in order to enjoy some of the episodes. Lucy divorced Desi in 1960. 'The Lucy Show' ran for 156 episodes between 1962 and 1968. The set-up is that Lucy is now sharing a large suburban house with her teenage daughter Chris ( played by Candy Moore ) and young son Jerry ( played by Jimmy Garrett ). Also sharing the house are Lucy's long-time best friend Vivian Bagley and her son Sherman ( played by Ralph Hart ). Lucy and Viv are both divorced. Vivian Vance as Viv is, in her own way, almost as funny as Lucy. Gale Gordon who plays Lucy's boss Mr. Mooney did not join the show until the second season as he was still playing Mr.Wilson in the TV comedy series 'Dennis The Menace'. The first season of 30 black and white episodes is presented here along with many special features including a newly recorded interview with daughter Lucie Arnaz. All episodes have been restored as you would expect from a proper studio release.
