Format: DVD
What can I say that isn't already known about the best-loved sitcom in television history? Well, it has a history of many firsts as its makers were pioneers in television. They single-handledly invented the re-run. They were also the first show to have a video club in VHS format for sale back in the late eighties. I purchased those tapes and still own them, and waited for the day the full six seasons would be available on DVD. I also own the 13 episodes of the "Lucy-Desi Comedy Hour" on VHS, which were shot as once-a-month specials at the end of Lucy and Desi's run. A separate DVD package for that makes sense, and we the fans look forward to its release (hey, while you're at it, guys, The Lucy Show and Here's Lucy would be great too!).

So from the first episode shot (which aired as episode #3, entitled "Lucy Thinks Ricky Wants To Murder Her", to the final episode from season six, entitled "Lucy Dedicates A Statue", you now have the complete set, with a pristine and lovingly restored picture, and all the extras from each season DVD.

Here's something a lot of people are surprised to know when I tell them. The advantage of watching all six seasons in a package like this is you see the story of the Ricardos and the Mertzes unfold, and the story has an arc, particularly for Lucy. This is perhaps most evident in one particular Hollywood episode, when she is offered a golden opportunity. But I won't give anything away here, you'll have to see what I mean!

Lucy collectors have been around since the beginning of the I Love Lucy phenomenon, and I think it's mainly because the show has heart. The jokes never get old, and there is a genuine appeal - you can relate to the show no matter who you are or where you're from.

Format: DVD
Over 50 years ago during the early years of broadcast television, the very inspired talents of Lucille Ball (1911-1989) and her then husband Desi Arnaz (1917-1986) were showcased on their hilarious television show "I Love Lucy". TV execs had initially rejected the plausibility of the show because of Desi and because they intended to tape the shows. However, thanks to the tireless efforts of Lucille Ball and Desi's obvious talents, the show first aired in 1951 and quickly became one of the most successful TV shows during all six of its regular seasons. As Lucy and Ricky Ricardo on "I Love Lucy", Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz were joined by William Frawley (1877-1966) and Viviane Vance (1909-1979) as their best-friends/apartment landlords of Fred and Ethel Mertz.

Listed below are some of the best of the show's 180 episodes & 1 special contained within this six-season DVD set.

First Season (35 Episodes):

2. "Be A Pal": Thinking their marriage is going cold, Lucy joins Ricky for a poker game, then turns their apartment into a Cuban getaway.

3. "The Diet": To be in one of Ricky's shows, Lucy must lose 22 pounds. No steak for Lucy.

8. "Men are Messy": Lucy divides their apartment in half when she tires of Ricky being messy, but goes whole-hog to impress a magazine photographer.

13. "The Benefit": Lucy gets Ricky to perform for Ethel's womens club, but only if she can perform too.

17. "Lucy Writes a Play": Lucy writes a play for her woman's club, but when Ricky won't do it, she changes it from Cuban to English. Ricky later changes his mind, but gets the wrong script.

18. "Breaking the Lease": After a fight, Lucy & Ricky want to move, but Ethel & Fred won't end their lease; so Lucy & Ricky have a little party.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I would gladly this set 5 stars, except for the fact that it is currently cheaper to purchase all 6 seasons of "I Love Lucy" individually. That should not be. There is nothing extra in this set that is not included in the individual sets, except for a fancy piece of cardboard on the bottom and some extra plastic wrap holding all of the sets together. I really don't understand Amazon's pricing policy. Their DVDs go dramatically up and down in price every week. Just last week the "I Love Lucy" seasons were $45 each, making this complete series collection a good deal. Now it is not worth it. Buy them individually and save 50 bucks. But beware, maybe next week they'll jack the prices up again.

Format: VHS Tape
Volume 1 of the "Best of 'I Love Lucy'" starts off with the classic "Lucy Does a TV Commercial" (Episode #30, May 5, 1952), Ricky is set to host a TV variety show and Lucy wants to do a live commercial for (all together now) Vitameatavegamin. Although she fails to win Ricky's support after staging a mock show inside their television set, Lucy arranges to get the gig anyhow. She starts off great, but the problem is that Vitameatavegamin contains 23% alcohol and with each rehearsal Lucy gets progressively drunker and funnier. Lucille Ball considered this the best bit, and one of the hardest, she ever did. Next we have the wonderful grape vat scene from "Lucy's Italian Movie" (Episode #150, April 16, 1956). The Ricardos are in Europe when an Italian movie producer tells Lucy that he wants her in his new film, "Grapola Pungente." Finding out the title translates as "bitter grapes," Lucy takes this literally and heads for the nearest vineyard where she has a memorable encounter with Teresa Tirelli stomping grapes in a vat. So right off the start, you have TWO of the THREE funniest Lucy routines (and the Candy Factory sketch from "Job Switching" is on Volume 2).
The other three episodes might not all be classics, but they are still very, very funny. "Lucy Does the Tango" (Episode #173, March 11, 1957), finds the Ricardos and Mertzes investing in 200 laying hens. All you need to do is hear the situation and you know that Lucy is going to end up with end up with egg on her face. Okay, egg on everything. In "The Freezer" (Episode #29, April 28, 1952), Lucy and Ethel buy a new walk-in freezer. But when they grossly overestimate its capacity, they are suddenly in the meat business.

key part of a scene missing from "The Celebrity Next Door"
This has puzzled me for years when they used to air "The Lucy-Desi Comedy Hour" on local channels or cable in the 1980's and 1990's. I always knew something was missing from the episode The Celebrity Next Door... be it one line of dialogue or a full scene. I've never seen it. But I knew... Read More

I Love Lucy Movie
The I Love Lucy Movie is wonderful. It is three first season episodes edited together with new sequences filmed in late 1952 (the night they filmed "The Handcuffs"). Editing was completed in early 1953 about the time Desi and Lucy signed with MGM to do "The Long Long... Read More

Subtitles ?
Sorry, that's not correct. All of the I Love Lucy DVDs (except for the hour shows) have the option to view Spanish subtitles, and most of them have the option to hear the dialogue in Spanish rather than English. All of the episodes also have English closed captions, but as with all closed... Read More
