I Love Lucy (Season 5) DVD Review

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 5) DVD offers a number of hilarious episodes including the season premiere "Lucy Visits Grauman's" in which Lucy is wrapping up her extended trip to Hollywood where she's collected a number of oddball collectibles, such as a tin can run over by Cary Grant's car and a napkin used by Lana Turner. But when Lucy learns that John Wayne's imprints on a concrete block in front of Grauman's Chinese Theater have come loose, she decides to steal a real souvenir to take home� Other notable episodes from Season 5 include "Lucy Goes to a Rodeo" in which Lucy confuses Ricky's performance on a "radio show" with his performance in a "rodeo show," and "Paris at Last" in which Lucy's trip to Paris is marked by her quest to find a famous artist whose paintings will one day be valuable, but the only artist she meets is a con artist who steals her blind�
