  • This episode had some funny moments, but the storyline was a little sloppy. This review may spoil the episode if you haven't seen it yet...

    With Lucy and Ethel posing as Martian women, this is one of the more memorable episodes. But the driving plot of the whole episode--that Lucy is jealous of an old classmate--was kind weakly thought out. Actually, Lucy is not so much jealous as she is a little concerned with keeping up appearances. Because of that, Ricky's repeated lecturing to Lucy about her 'jealousy' isn't really convincing. Finally, the ending of the episode did not make sense to me. How did Ricky and Fred know that Lucy and Ethel were the Martian women? And then, why would they go out of their way to dress up as Martian men to scare them and take away the money the girls earned--it was supposed to be for charity. Even if the guys were just playing a joke, it was plain silly and I suppose the writers were just trying to fill up the time to finish off this weak episode.
