Product Description


This sixth volume of I Love Lucy's brilliant first season includes the charming "The Young Fans," in which a teenage girl (Janet Waldo, the future voice of Judy Jetson) develops a crush on nightclub star Ricky Ricardo (Desi Arnaz), prompting the latter's zany spouse Lucy (Lucille Ball) to help the girl's cast-off boyfriend (Richard Crenna) try to win her back. The problem: the moony boy falls for Lucy instead. "New Neighbors" finds Lucy and best pal Ethel Mertze (Vivian Vance) in familiar snoop mode, misinterpreting a dramatic rehearsal and concluding that a plot to murder the Ricardos is underway. "Fred and Ethel Fight" concerns Lucy and Ricky inviting the feuding spouses to dinner, unbeknownst to either of the Mertzes, while "The Moustache" involves Lucy's effort to embarrass Ricky into shaving but inadvertently sealing a false beard to her own face. Not indispensable episodes, but essential for Lucy completists. --Tom Keogh

5.0 out of 5 stars The Laughs Just Keep Coming May 19 2004
The second half of season one was certainly stronger, as these four episodes demonstrate.
Unfortunately, this disc starts with a weak episode. "The Young Fans" finds both Ricky and Lucy with crushes from young neighbors. Fred and Ethel are completely missing (a common complaint of mine early on) and I find the ending unbelievable. Fortunately, the other three episodes are much better.
"New Neighbors" finds Lucy thinking he's over heard a plot to kill her and Ricky when she spies on the new tenants. This episode is hysterical, especially for Lucy's impersonation of a chair.
When "Fred and Ethel Fight," Lucy and Ricky get caught in the middle. And after the Mertzes have made up, it's the Ricardos who aren't speaking to each other.
Lastly, "The Moustache" finds Lucy trying to get Ricky to shave only to wind up with a beard herself. This episode features some truly funny facial expressions from a frustrated Lucy.
This DVD is a collector's dream. The episodes are presented in their entirety, and they look and sound sharp. There are occasional flaws in the picture, but considering the source material is 50 years old, it really isn't bad at all. The sound is presented in mono. While it won't challenge your sound system, it serves the purpose well and is faithful to the original audio recording. The extras this time around feature two original openings since they changed starting with "New Neighbors." Also included are the now familiar guest cast info, trivia, mistakes, and episode of "My Favorite Husband."
While not an ideal way to be released, it's wonderful to have these shows on DVD. I can't get enough Lucy, and this disc will be played many times at my house.

1.0 out of 5 stars I am disappointed in the way they are packaged Aug. 14 2003
I agree with the comments made by Brian B. I Love Lucy should be available in box sets like all the other series. I love the show but I am very unhappy that they are not available in box sets.

1.0 out of 5 stars Getting fed up with these bogus "sets" June 24 2003
I am just about fed up and at my wits end with Studios releasing these partial "sets". You know, you've seen several studios doing it: putting 4 or 5 helter-skelter episodes from a particular year or years on a DVD rather than boxing the entire season in chronological order. To say that they nickle and dime you to death by these underhanded practices wouldn't be so bad if indeed we were talking about "nickles and dimes", however, we are talking about major tens, twenties, fifties, and hundreds of dollars to fully complete these series. The unabashed greed of the Studios, represented by putting a measley four episodes per DVD is appalling. I Love Lucy is certainly not the first and only show that is doing this, but that hardly makes it any more palletable. Speaking for myself, but with certainly many, many more movie and TV buffs like myself sharing this opinion, I refuse to be lurred in to buying these partial sets any more, only to discover months later that the studio has put out the individual full seasons in chronological order. Listen, I'm not going to say that series' such as M*A*S*H, Cheers, Frazier, All in the Family, and The Simpsons are any better than I Love Lucy, but they are brilliant in their own right, and they all put out full-season box sets and I have every one of them, just as I would have I Love Lucy if they were available, but I cannot allow myself to be ripped off any more. So if any of you Studio "heads" (and I'm being kind in not using a more appropriate body part here) are listening - you will get zilch from me from this point forward until you live the words of Spike Lee and "Do the Right Thing".

All "I Love Lucy" episodes on this DVD are in the same order filmed. "The Young Fans", episode 20, filmed January 18, 1952, broadcast February 25, 1952. Vivian Vance and William Frawley are not in this episode. "New Neighbors", episode 21, filmed January 25, 1952, broadcast March 3, 1952. Yes that's Hayden Rorke who later was cast in "I Dream Of Jeannie" tv series. K.T. Stevens was one of Vivian Vance's closest friends. "Fred and Ethel Fight", episode 22, filmed January 30, 1952, broadcast March 10, 1952. "The Moustache", episode 23, filmed February 8, 1952, broadcast March 17, 1952.
