    I was just curious if anyone has any news on I Love Lucy Season 2... Are they going to make us wait for a year like many other season releases? Or will they come out at a decent pace like the other discs from Season 1 did? I know Season 2 is suppose to be the full season instead of individual discs, thats why I ask?

    Thats the one thing I hate about Television show releases... Having to wait years for many of them...

    Ryan,

    Just came back from Paramount.

    I believe you'll see Season 2 in January/February.

    Thats good news. I hope they release at least 3 seasons next year so we can have all 6 seasons of this great show by 2005. When they finish season 6 I also hope they follow it up with a set of the 13 Lucy-Desi Comedy hour episodes.

    Hopefully they will not use the same type of packaging as they did on their recently released season one set, but rather much smaller, digi pack type packs such as those that most everyone else has begun using.

    I'm not really fond of digipacks, but if the went with slim packs or double amarays, they'd use a lot less space.

    I would be perfectly happy with Twilight Zone-esque thinness...and putting more than 4 episodes a disc wouldn't hurt...

    Paramount has said Season Two will be released all at once in a boxed set. I also know from personal discussions with their producer, Gregg Oppenheimer, that CBS (Paramount is just the distributor) is committing more money to digitally restoring the episodes starting with Season Two.

    He also told me that speculation by some members here that the previous DVDs were mastered from the old analogue video masters was ridiculous, and that ALL the discs from Season One had brand-new transfers from the best existing film elements.

    I hope they do all the LUCY DESI COMEDY HOURS TO
    THEIR ORIGINAL TIMES, Especially "LUCY TAKES A CRUISE TO
    HAVANA", they cut the scenes LUCY had with HEDDA HOPPER,
    telling about how she and Ricky met. That show was like
    90 minutes, but, from what I have read it was cut to
    60, to accomodate syndication. And when it was released to
    video it was the shorter version.
