If you're reading this review you're probably already familiar with the show, and most likely a fan. However, you may not be familiar with how "Here's Lucy: Season One" has been packaged and presented in this new release, so I'll use this review to provide my opinion in that regard. Let me say right off the top, if you are a Lucy fan, I highly recommend that you purchase "Here's Lucy: Season One". I received my copy in the mail yesterday. I'll first address the packaging. The outer package is the familiar, clear, plastic, clam-like box, with the artwork inserted. The discs are stored inside on a spindle, which is hinged to the spine of the box. Because of this design, when you open the box, you can see the episode titles listed for each disc, appearing on both inside panels. Specifically, this means that you do not have to remove the discs to read the titles listed on the inside panels. The discs are one-sided with colorful labels featuring the "Here's Lucy" logo and the familiar marionette. The menus are very easy to navigate, and the discs are void of other product promotions. You can select to watch the episodes with or without a filmed introduction by Lucie Arnaz, Desi Arnaz, Jr. or the episode's guest star. The quality of the video is absolutely sensational. The images are crystal clear, and the colors are probably more vivid than they appeared when originally broadcast. The extras alone are worth the money. I don't want to give away too much but they include: Desi Arnaz, Jr.'s screen test for his mom's 1968 theatrical film, "Yours, Mines, and Ours"; creation of the opening credits; and film of the Queen of Comedy golfing with The Great One himself, Jackie Gleason. If you are a Lucy fan, buy this dvd set, you'll not be disappointed.

Lucille Ball began her third weekly series on CBS on September 23rd, 1968. After selling "The Lucy Show" to Paramount, Lucy wanted to own her own show, so she created "Lucille Ball Productions" to produce her new sitcom. Lucy had already finished an amazing run on CBS with her "I Love Lucy" show in the '50's, and her 1962-1968 series "The Lucy Show" never went out of the top 10. It was very important for CBS to keep her as the network knew Lucy had a loyal fan base that wanted to watch her week after week. "The Lucy Show" finished its final season in 1968 at #2 in the national Nielsen numbers, so expectations were high that "Here's Lucy" would be an even bigger hit. Lucy had nothing to worry about: both the fans and critics loved her new show, with "Here's Lucy" staying in the top 10 in its first three years.
"Here's Lucy" was different than Lucy's other two series in that she cast her real-life children, Lucie Arnaz and Desi Arnaz Jr., as her on-screen kids Kim and Craig. Lucy also brought back the marvelous Gale Gordon as her brother-in-law Harry and boss at the Unique Employment Agency in Los Angeles, which was the setting of the series. Lucy played Gale's crazy secretary. The wacky redhead continued to make viewers laugh for six more years on CBS, and many fans, including this one, believe "Here's Lucy" was Lucille Ball's best television work. Lucy has even admitted that out of all her shows, this one was her favorite.
As the 1970's arrived CBS wanted to change its image as the "rural network" by canning shows that featured longtime tv personalities like Ed Sullivan. Lucille Ball was a different story however. "Here's Lucy" would continue well into the '70's as CBS' top-rated show. In 1970-1971 "Here's Lucy" finished the year as CBS' #1 program!

This Summer of 2009 is a Lucy Summer! In July we are getting the first season of The Lucy Show, thanks to CBS/Paramount and on August 25th, we are getting the first season of Here's Lucy, thanks to MPI Home Video. Some of the great shows of Here's Lucy have already been on dvd by Shout!Factory, and it is a great set, but now we finally get to have all of it complete!

When I heard Here's Lucy Season 1 is being put out by MPI Home Video, I immediately contacted MPI for more information- especially about the quality of the video! For anyone who is familiar with MPI Home Video's quality of their dvd's, you know they can be horrible or superb. MPI put out the first season of The Beverly Hillbillies, The Honeymooners 6 sets and Hullabaloo's- all very poor quality, loaded with graininess and scratches. MPI also put out The Doris Day Show- all 5 seasons and Family Affair's all 5 seasons, and the quality is superb, very clean and crystal clear! MPI is also known for putting out all of a show's seasons separately and then in a complete set later on. I spoke to MPI directly to find out the quality they are putting into Here's Lucy Season 1, and they assured me that they are remastering the original 35 mm film, in exactly the same way they did for Doris Day and Family Affair. This means the dvd's will be absolutely superb in color, crystal clear sharp picture and a clean film! As a huge Lucy fan, this was great news for me! They also stated, that on June 30th, 2009, they are putting out the first of The Lucille Ball Specials dvd. These are two specials that Lucy made after Here's Lucy, starring with Dean Martin and Jackie Gleason. Both Here's Lucy and The Lucille Ball Specials will have extra's included. I was really happy to see that the film quality is absolutely superb on this first season!
