is the lucy show complete series a good deal for 115$ and no pic of it its on amazon
Lucy breaking her leg and generally getting older actually helped the last two seasons of Here's Lucy because they forced her to start relying more on her supporting team, which gave Lucie Arnaz, Gale and especially forsaken character people like Mary Jane Croft more time in the spotlight. Also, when Lucy was in a cast, Uncle Harry was no longer quite as bombastic, his character softened a bit and at fleeting moments, you saw that they genuinely cared for one another -- a badly needed adjustment in tone. While HL never came close to being 1/10 as good as I Love Lucy and many episodes remain silly beyond belief, the last two seasons do have some watchable episodes.Kasey said:Ironically, Here's Lucy takes the opposite approach and actually improves in its last 2 seasons. In fact, the final episode of the series "Lucy Fights the System" is one of the best of the whole series.
HL also has fantastic bonus extras and every episode is introduced by Lucie, Desi Jr. or a featured player or guest star. For instance, Petula Clark introduces her guest outing! There's great fun to be had with those sets even though one has to wonder how much better Lucy's late career would have been if Desi Sr. and Jess Oppenheimer were still around to offer guidance if nothing else.eric scott richard said:I'm going to finish both series since (cliche time) I love Lucy and I would like to have her entire tv output (especially the series.) So, in 2013, I will continue to push through The Lucy Show and Here's Lucy. They have great color, if nothing else.
There are two "Ricardo" adventures that have not been released. They'd make nice extras (and selling points) on a LIFE WITH LUCY set, if rights could be cleared.rmw650 said:Now we just wait for Life With Lucy to be released and that should be most everything of hers available, with the exception of a Lucy special she shot in Nashville at the Opry.
