I Love Lucy (Season 2) DVD Review - Articles Surfing

Widely considered one of the greatest, if not the greatest, show in television history, I Love Lucy signaled the ascendance of the prime time TV era. The brainchild of Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz, I Love Lucy revolutionized the television industry with its extensive use of a live audience and the employment of multiple camera angles. The result of true comic genius, the show's ability to entertain is just as relevant today as it was fifty years ago'

Real-life couple Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz play the prominent roles of Lucy and Ricky Ricardo, a married couple living in a New York apartment complex. Ricky is a Cuban-born band leader who wows night clubs with his act, while Lucy is a homemaker. Lucy and Ricky's best friends are landlords Fred and Ethel Mertz who often become intertwined in Lucy's get-rich-quick schemes, screwball ideas, and comic shenanigans. Former masters of the stage, the cast comes across as a likeable bunch, with Lucille Ball stealing the show with her goofy antics and brilliant facial contortions. If ever there were a television classic, then I Love Lucy is it'

The I Love Lucy (Season 2) DVD offers a number of hilarious episodes including the season premiere "The Anniversary Present" in which Ricky is spending time with a beautiful neighbor who is helping him find the perfect anniversary present for Lucy. But Lucy and Ethel are convinced that Ricky is having an affair, and they set out to spy on the two "home wreckers"' Other notable episodes from Season 2 include "Redecorating" in which Lucy unwittingly sells all the furniture after Fred and Ricky conspire to tell her she's won a home decorating contest, and "The Camping Trip" in which Ricky tries to keep Lucy (and Ethel) from horning in on his and Fred's camping retreat by taking her on a "trial run" (which he plans to make a miserable experience). But Ricky doesn't know that Lucy's on to his scheme, and she's determined to turn the tables on him'
