5.0 out of 5 stars FULL LEG CAST, DAUGHTER LUCIE SHINES, LAST EPISODE FILMED November 25, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Huge Thank You's To MPI for bringing us this Season 5 of Here's Lucy which will be released on February 28th of 2012! For us Lucy Fans, that means we will need only one more last Season 6 to have the entire series of Here's Lucy on DVD! 2012 also promises to have the last Season 6 of The Lucy Show on dvd from CBS as well- leaving us fans beyond happy to own the entire seasons of both Here's Lucy and The Lucy Show! MPI, as always, promises the best remastering/restoration of this Season 5 with plenty of bonus goodies included for us Lucy fans!

Here's Lucy Season 5 was the beginning of the end for Lucy's great television career. Lucy had more than one bad break besides the one from her tragic skiing accident, as the Nielsen ratings dropped Here's Lucy from out of the top ten to #15 this season. In 1970, an almost 60 year old Lucy fell in love with skiing, so much in fact that she purchased 3 condos in the ski resort of Snowmass, Colorado for the entire family. Lucy's natural athletic ability and her love of the crisp, cold air made skiing a perfect fit for her. The beautiful cold snow brought back her childhood memories from New York and the Midwest where she grew up. Sadly, this lovely retreat for Lucy turned into a tragedy, when in early January 1972, Lucy was resting to the side after lunch, as skiers passed her, when a woman came down the trail and plowed right into her. The woman and her skis broke Lucy's right leg into 4 pieces. This put poor Lucy into surgery and a full leg cast right up to her hip.

In the hospital, Lucy constantly kept chipping the cast down to her calf, but the doctors kept replastering it back up. Lucy would never get over the fact that her leg would never be the same being held together with 4 pins.

5.0 out of 5 stars No Chimps, Gorillas or Garboonas--Thank Heavens! February 28, 2012
By Kasey G
Format:DVD
MPI delivers yet another fantastic "Here's Lucy" release with Season Five. Presentation-wise, everything is just as terrific here as it has been for the last four releases: gorgeous eye-popping colorful prints of the episodes themselves and a treasure trove of extras.

Of course, this is the year that Lucille Ball famously broke her leg and was confined to a wheelchair for several episodes and after it healed she was limited in the physical comedy she was able to perform. Actually at this point, the show benefits from Lucy's misfortune as she's forced to rely on comedic delivery and timing rather than schtick. No chimps, gorillas or Garboonas this season; nor do we have creaky musical numbers of seasons past. The plots this year become more logical (well, logical for Lucyland anyway) and Season 5 becomes the strongest yet of the series.

Most notable among the Bonus Features is a 30-minute collection of Bloopers; many of which fans have only read about up to this point: Jack Benny remarking on a retake that they'll "have to do this G*damn thing all over again" after Lucy breaks the heel of her shoe; and Carole Cook and Lucie Arnaz bumping-and-grinding during the "Mais-Oui" perfume number. There are plenty more and wait 'til you hear the off-color remark Lucy makes about director Jerry Paris!

While the episodes themselves certainly don't rate against the best of "I Love Lucy", when judging them against other "Here's Lucy's", this is the most consistently good season thus far. My favorite segment "Lucy Is Really In a Pickle" features an obvious rip-off of Vitemeatavegamin with Lucy making various sourpuss faces while rehearsing a pickle commercial, but the episode stands on its own merits.

Five stars for this release and only one more season to go. Thanks MPI!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best Seasons of The Series February 20, 2012
Format:DVD
Firstly, there's no logical reason to judge any of Lucille Ball's television work against her
first series, I Love Lucy. Nothing will ever compare to that landmark program. But her later
shows, including Here's Lucy can be enjoyed on their own terms.

Lucy remains a legend and there's plenty still to love on Here's Lucy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Here's Lucy: Season Five - Better Than Ever! November 28, 2011
By Lizzie
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The fifth season of Here's Lucy will for sure please Lucy fans. Unfortunately Lucille Ball had a skiing accident and had to be in a wheelchair for most of the season. Lucy's daughter Lucie Arnaz got to show off her talent with guest stars such as Donny Osmond and others. The ratings for the show dropped. Ball was so depressed that she decided that the fifth season would be her last. They filmed a last episode with Harry (Gale Gordon) selling the office, packing up and remembering the times he had with Lucy (Lucille Ball), Kim (Lucie Arnaz) and Craig (Desi Arnaz, Jr.). At the last minute, the producers of the show convinced her to do the sixth season. She did. I already pre - ordered it and if I were you, I would do so too.

5.0 out of 5 stars This seasons product is Superb! May 22, 2012
Format:DVD
Here's Lucy: Season FiveAll the reviewers said Here's Lucy went downhill with this season. I think this season has some of her best work of the series! The entire cast was showcased and it shined. I loved every episode of this season. Ratings wise she suffered because of Monday Night Football. However, the show holds up extremely well and you can see Desi,Sr's; influence in the show. The show is just so much more richer!
