Format: DVD Verified Purchase
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.

The third season of "I Love Lucy" that aired between 1953 and 1954 has 31 memorable episodes:

1. "Ricky's 'Life' Story": Not happy about being ignored in Ricky's magazine interview, Lucy gets back at Ricky.

2. "The Girls Go Into Business": Lucy & Ethel purchase a dress shop, but things don't turn out as profitably as they had imagined.

3. "Lucy and Ethel Buy the Same Dress": Getting a rare opportunity to perform on TV for their women's club, Lucy & Ethel purchase the same dress.

4. "Equal Rights": When Lucy & Ethel demand equal rights from Ricky & Fred, the men only think that they are getting back at them at a restaurant.

5. "Baby Pictures": Lucy's jealousy over Carolyn Appleby's (Doris Singleton) baby as compared with Little Ricky is not advantageous to Ricky's upcoming appearance on a TV show hosted by Carolyn's husband.

6. "Lucy Tells the Truth": Lucy bets Ricky that she can tell the truth for 24 hours and drives everyone crazy.

Format: DVD
In season two Lucy had little Ricky. Most of the season dealt with the pregnancy and the joys of a newborn. In season three Little Ricky is now a toddler. The 31 episodes are on five discs.

Disc One:

Ricky's "LIFE" Story - A pictorial spread on Ricky appears in LIFE magazine but Lucy is nowhere to be scene (well her elbow can be scene). Lucy blames Ricky for this. Fred comes up with a scheme to quite Lucy forever. Ricky gives Lucy a starring role in a dance number. The plan is to make it so strenuous that Lucy will quit. It works until Fred blurts out the plan to Lucy. This creates a great revenge scene.

The Girls Go Into Business - Lucy and Ethel's favorite dress shop is up for sale and the girls decide to buy it. What they find out is it appears that they are the shop's only customers.

Lucy and Ethel buy the Same Dress - When the girls Ladies' Club is given 30 minutes on television for a show, Lucy promises the club Ricky so she can take control of the show. Lucy and Ethel decide to perform Cole Porter's Friendship for the finale. But when they show up in the same dress, the number goes from friendship to fiendship!

Equal Rights - Lucy demands that Ricky and Fred treat Ethel and her as equals. The catch is Ricky and Fred decide to enforce this at dinner and have the maitre d' give the girls separate checks. When they can't pay, they are forced to clean dishes. The girls play a phone prank to get the boys back to the restaurant but the boys find out and turn the tables on the girls but have the girls get the last laugh.

Baby Pictures - Lucy and Ricky make a vow not to bore everyone with pictures of Little Ricky.

Format: DVD
I am happy that CBS and Paramount have released another season of "I Love Lucy." I have watched this series in its perpetual repeats my entire life and owning these DVD sets and being able to watch classic "Lucy" anytime I want is terrific.

I'm a big fan of "I Love Lucy" episodes set in the Ricardo's New York City apartment. Season Three contains 31 really enjoyable episodes of this variety. There are no Hollywood stars or European locales just fun situations involving Lucy, Ricky, Ethel and Fred. Of course, there are still all of our favorite "Lucy" antics. She tries to get into Ricky's show ("The French Revue"), she fights with Ethel ("Lucy and Ethel Buy The Same Dress") and she gets into those outrageous situations only she can get into ("Bonus Bucks").

This set also includes one of my all-time favorite "I Love Lucy" episodes, "Lucy is Envious." This is the one where Lucy and Ethel pledge $500 to a charity of Lucy's snotty school friend and in order to raise the money they take a job dressing up as Martian women for a publicity stunt for a movie. The ending scene in this episode is especially funny.

As with Season Two, they have packaged the entire season (31 episodes) into a cardboard sleeve that holds five slim cases containing the five DVD discs. The whole season of classic episodes will take up a spot on your DVD shelf about two inches wide but the entertainment is much more enormous.

The extras are comparable to the Season Two set. You will find original openings and transitions, some deleted scenes used to bridge continuity when shows were rerun, some commercials that Lucy and Desi did to promote their films, etc., there are flubs, and some radio shows of Lucy's "My Favorite Husband" series.

Who is the "Oh-Oh" woman?
This lady is most likely Lucille Ball's mother, DeDe Ball, and it's not a plant. It is said Lucy's mother was in the audience for every episode of every series and always was heard saying uh oh or just talking.
