    One of the best old time shows you`ll love

    By Raven77, Mar 02, 2014

    Pretty funny show. If you ask me, it looks like it was filmed a bit ahead of its time yet it manages to still look good today compared to some shows you see on these days. Full of funny moments and timeless characters, this may be the best old school show that there is.

    Re-watching the entire series

    By TVIcons, Mar 09, 2013

    Just bought the entire series, and finished season one. It took a few episodes to hit their stride, but these shows are perfection. Nobody mentions it but I Love Lucy was the Number 1 situation comedy on television for its ENTIRE run. I don't think any comedy has been that popular since. As a side note, Here's Lucy was the #1 situation comedy on TV in 1970. What an amazing legacy and run for Lucille Ball! I doubt there will ever be anyone as popular as Lucy again. Desi Arnaz is so under-rated. He is brilliant in this show. AND Vivian Vance... best supporting player ever . . . right up there with Don Knotts. Re-watching the show, I find myself marveling at Vivian Vance's excellence as much as I do Lucy's.

    If you are just watching the edited shows on TV, I recommend buying the series. Sloppy syndicated editing takes away the smoothness of the shows, and they don't play as well. And speaking of syndication, we owe a great deal of appreciation to the series' production crew. If it wasn't for the excellent cinematography, lighting, scripting and direction, no matter how brilliant the cast was, these would never had played in syndication.moreless

    A Legendary and Timeless Classic

    By AlexEdwards1, Feb 09, 2013

    The Precursor of all Sitcom, I Love Lucy stands out still today as one of TV's greatest shows, mainly thanks to the wild and hilarious antics of the Queen of Comedy herself, Lucille Ball. Serving as the televised adaptation of Ms. Balls successful Radio Comedy "My Favorite Husband" I Love Lucy followed the antics of the worlds craziest Housewife, Lucy Ricardo. Each time you saw that famous Heart on a satin background, you knew the events that followed would eventually end up with the Red Headed Mischief Maker in an outrageous, perilous or downright bizarre situation. Whether it was becoming intoxicated due to a pick me up tonic with a high alcohol content, battling and losing to a high speed candy convert belt, brawling with another woman in an Italian Wine Vat, Tangoing with Ricky while hiding over 3 dozen eggs in her blouse and so on. More importantly Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz helped to pioneer many concepts that the sitcom continue to use today, such as multiple cameras, a live audience and filming in Hollywood rather than New York. Without I Love Lucy, shows such as Friends, Modern Family, Everybody Loves Raymond, 30 Rock or Seinfield may have never existed.moreless

    Colorize Already

    By WillJOsbor, Jan 29, 2013

    They really should colorize the I love lucy series, esp seeing that they have color recordings to reference what color everything was for some episodes if that's not fake, but it looks real to me I think they didn't use those cameras because though they offered color the pixels were bad. I like watching the old episodes, but it gets terribly drab after a few when my eyes are so used to new color tv shows, I could sit through a whole season or two of this if they fixed the lack of color problem. Oh & release dvd sets in color please now that you have the lost pilot there should be nothing stopping you from releasing the whole thing in it's entirety.moreless

    It brought forward very sarcastic clean wit from radio days. It was a groundbreaking show. TV was new then and Lucy's sitcom format set the standard from there on out. A timeless classic that didn't use dated material so it's still fresh as far as relationship and marital situations. Everybody has a favorite episode and everybody has seen just about all of the shows. The DVD set got me through the roughest time period in my life and that's all I watched (or listened) to for a rock solid year. The humor and banter between the characters kept my spirits lifted. There were a couple of clunker episodes but almost all of them were gems.moreless

    I would describe I Love Lucy as the best tv show of all time. It will always be the best. Desi Arnaz and Lucille Ball teamed up and invented something brilliant and what nobody had done before. It is great because no inappropriate things are in it. I wish more people today watched old classics, instead of what is on TV now. I am so glad I Love Lucy still shows!

    i've been watching this show for a long time and it NEVER gets old.

    By mnman, Dec 09, 2011

    i've been watching this show for a long time and it NEVER gets old. I love this show for so many reasons. Like the character Lucy is so freakin hilarious. And all the characters are funny but not as nearly as Lucy. Now this show went on in the 50's and it still comes on TV land. WOW i'm suprised that no one gets old of this show. Now there have some boring episode but only like 1 or 2. Every show has the. Overal l10/10.moreless
