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.

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.

I am so grateful that The Lucy Show Official 4th Season has been released on DVD. I love this season! Lucy's lovely 1960s California apartment is great (I always wanted to have an apartment like that one). The episodes are wonderful and I really enjoyed seeing Countess Framboise (Ann Sothern) in several of the episodes (it would have been great if Ann Sothern stayed until the end of The Lucy Show series but as noted here by another reviewer Ann Sothern wanted equal star billing with Lucy and Lucy was not going to have any of that! Too bad that Ann didn't accept a co-star billing but she wouldn't so that's the way the cookie crumbles). It was also nice to see Joan Blondell, Dean Martin, Wayne Newton and Mickey Rooney in this season. And the Wing Ding episode is one of my favorites of The Lucy Show series. All in glorious, perfectly presented CoLoR! I also loved the extra titled The Magic of Broadcasting included in this DVD set. Great work CBS! Now, when can we expect the Official 5th season?? I'll order as soon as it's announced. The Lucy Show is a series that I'm hoping to collect every season of so I can watch and watch again.

I have to admit that I never liked Desi Arnaz much but I liked I Love Lucy. I love the Lucy Show a whole lot more. Lucy and Vivian Vance were great together and then others after. I couldn't wait for Season Four to arrive after purchasing the other three seasons. One reason that I love this season is for two episodes in particular is because of the episode titled "Lucy The Choir Master". It is a christmas episode to cherish and it's in color. From Lucy screwing up gift tags to her annoying a tree lot owner, to her trying to direct a childrens choir. Hilarious and heartwarming. This is much like the first seasons christmas classic Another favorite of mine is "Lucy Discovers Wayne Newton" where Wayne is only a teenager then and sings the song "Bessie The Heiffer". It is very cute and funny and is one of Lucy's favorites. I'd rather watch this any day over the new comedies. Lucy was a genius at comedy. Buy it for yourself. The episodes are great fun!!!
