    The only Lucy Show episodes I have seen so far have been from Season Five, and among them this is my all-time favorite. Carol Burnett is simply hysterical as Lucy's new roommate – a gangly, eccentrically overbearing librarian who quickly turns to stone around the opposite sex.



    Lucy's usual quirkiness turns to mainstream charm and poise contrasted with Carol's over-the-top gestures and mannerisms. One has to sympathize with the blindsided Lucy, who appears absolutely composed in comparison to her roomie. Burnett's expressions and antics induce side stitches, culminating in her performance after drinking too much "Italian Water" of a bawdy-style rendition of the song "Hard Hearted Hannah (the Tramp of Savannah)."



    This episode is a must-see for any Carol Burnett fans out there!moreless
