Editorial Reviews

The Lucy Show, starring television’s favorite redhead, Lucille Ball, returns to DVD with in all new laugh-filled adventures. This season, scatterbrained Lucy Carmichael relocates to Southern California, only to discover that her banker-nemesis, Mr. Mooney (Gale Gordon) has done the same. With her children off at school, Lucy discovers the life of a “single girl,” meeting new friends, going on dates, and trying to make ends meet with part-time jobs. Lucy’s zany antics bring her into contact with some of Hollywood’s biggest stars – including Danny Thomas, Milton Berle, Art Linkletter, Mickey Rooney, Dean Martin, Bob Crane and many others. Containing all 26 color episodes from the official Fourth Season, digitally remastered on 4 discs, The Lucy Show will delight longtime fans and newcomers alike!

No one knew what to expect in Season 4, after The Lucy Show Season 3 was a farewell to Vivian Vance. What they didn't expect from the show that was always in the top 10 Nielsen ratings, was that it would move up in the ratings to #3 after Vivian's departure, which it surprisingly did. The new Season 4 begins with Lucy moving to California and enlisting son Jerry in The Los Angeles Military School, while sending her daughter Chris up north to college. Lucy takes Jerry to Marineland to get Jimmy Piersall's autograph on Jimmy Piersall Day, all filmed at the real Marineland with the real Jimmy Piersall. What a great start to a season! Added to all this, you'll see Lucy perform with the seals and dolphins as well as seeing her real life children sitting behind her in the stands.

Besides booking more great guest stars in this season, Lucy was still looking for that permanent new sidekick to replace Vivian. Lucy's close friend Ann Sothern was out of the question due to Ann's wanting equal top billing, so the search was still on. In the 4th episode, a new contender appeared in the show, Joan Blondell. Joan played Joan Brenner, who lives downstairs and works at the movie studios. Lucy didn't have an opinion on her from one episode, so she put Joan in the next episode, where Lucy's famous stunt man character Iron Man Carmichael was born. At the end of this second episode with Joan Blondell, Lucy was so disappointed in Joan's performances and the fact that they had no chemistry both on and off screen, that she imitated flushing a toilet in front of the audience. The audience gasped and Joan Blondell was so upset and insulted at the toilet flushing gesture that she shouted the mother of all words to Lucy, Blank (it rhymes with duck) You Lucille Ball! came out of her mouth.

The fourth season of "The Lucy Show" is a major turning point in the series. Vivian Vance had quit at the end of season three so Lucy had to change formats. I must say that the California Years have some of the best episodes of the series. First of all, "The Lucy Show" finished a whopping third place in the Nielsen ratings for 1965-66 season. It averaged a 27.7 rating and was way up from season three. Season four also includes three more fabulous episodes with Ann Sothern as the Countess Framboise and one of the episodes include a cameo by William Frawley. Actress Joan Blondell also stars in two episodes and both are great. Season four of "The Lucy Show" changed for the better, season three just couldn't go on any longer, especially with Vivian Vance's (I love her) demands. Lucy was the star of the show and it showed by going it alone for the last nine years of her weekly television series career. Gale Gordon's role is much larger now and Lucy will come to work for Banker Mooney as his secretary. Lucy and Gale have a great chemistry together. Mary Jane Croft will fill the void left by Vivian Vance. The Mary Jane Lewis character is a real sweetheart. She's sort of like an older Georiga Engel of "The Mary Tyler Moore Show."
Season four garnerd Lucy her 11th Emmy Nomination for Best Actress In A Comedy Series and her second nomination for "The Lucy Show." She will win two more Emmy's for the fifth and sixth seasons of "The Lucy Show.

For fans of "The Lucy Show", this release of the series' fourth season is bittersweet. CBS is now rolling them out at a reasonable pace (it's been less than six months since Season 3 came out last November), but Season 4 marks a sharp turning point for the series.

Fans of Vivian Vance will be especially disappointed. Having left the series at the end of Season 3, this year she only receives a two-second mention from Lucy in the season-opener ("I wonder how Viv likes her new husband"). Trying to find a replacement for the irreplaceable Viv was fruitless, so after an episode with Joan Blondell as a potential sidekick, Ann Sothern makes a few return appearances to fill the void before everyone probably decided "Oh, the hell with it" and gave up. From this point forward, whenever they needed an ear for Lucy's schemes, they called on good 'ol reliable, sweet Mary Jane Croft.

Lucy's TV son Jerry is the only holdover from the Danfield era, but he is quickly whisked off to military school, leaving the Lucy character to adapt to her new surroundings in Hollywood and settle in with the series new "Guest-star-of-the-week" format (this season she meets Milton Berle, Danny Thomas, Mickey Rooney, Wayne Newton, Art Linkletter and Bob Crane to name but a few).

Gale Gordon is forced to step up to the plate and becomes the principal co-star for Lucy for the remainder of the series. This is the season where he goes from managing her trust fund to becoming her employer at the bank, projecting frustration and his patented slow-burn in nearly every episode.

All of these changes certainly do the show no favours. The earlier "Lucy Show" episodes quite often had the same energy and spark as "I Love Lucy", but these offerings are totally a horse of a different color altogether.
