Format: DVD
I was also a bit disappointed in the quality of this DVD. DVDs are supposed to be of the best quality in picture and sound. Mine looks a little fuzzy and washed out - like it was recorded on VHS off the TV, and yes, mine skips in some spots, also. The fact that this show originally aired in the '60s is no excuse. I've got VHS tapes of The Lucy Show which are better quality than this DVD. My husband is collecting the DVDs of the classic Star Trek episodes, and the picture and sound quality of those is excellent - better even than the VHS tapes he has of Star Trek: The Next Generation, which aired roughly 30 years after the classic series aired. If a DVD company (or whoever makes the DVDs - I don't know) can go through the trouble of making sure that the DVDs of the classic Star Trek series are of excellent quality, then they *could* do the same for The Lucy Show, no? Getting good quality film, restoration, etc. It is possible to enjoy if you put the poor quality aside, so I gave this DVD 2 stars.
If good quality isn't too important to you, you might be interested - The price isn't all that high compared to other DVDs, which probably reflects the poor quality. However, if it is of high importance to you, I'd skip over this one...

After "I Love Lucy," and the subsequent 13 hour long specials featuring Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz, Lucille Ball returned to television in "The Lucy Show." The first season of this program, with Desi Arnaz serving as Executive Producer, explored the theme of what it would be like in 1960 for two women to share a house, without a man around to do what was at the time considered the manly things (watching the money, putting up a TV antenna, etc.) At the end of that first season, Lucille Ball bought out Desi Arnaz' stake in Desilu, and this program, as a result suffered. By the time these episodes were done, not only was Desi gone, so too were Lucy's best writers: Bob Carroll, Jr., Madelyn Davis, Bob Schiller, and Bob Weiskopf. So as the writers who knew Lucy best were gone, so too was the Lucy persona of "I Love Lucy." No longer was Lucy a conniver who'd do things like swindle her way into a weekend at a British estate, or who'd break into Richard Widmark's house to get a grapefruit. Now instead, Lucy Carmichael is devoid of everything that made Lucy Ricardo funny. Now she has become a total idiot. A total idiot, that is, who is somehow able to just walk into the homes of celebrities like Paul Winchell or Jack Benny, to get them to do favors for her. These scripts are just plain awful. They do give you a chance to see some of the celebrities of the 1960s, but if you're a true fan of Lucille Ball's, you know that her best work ever was that done between 1951 and 1957 on "I Love Lucy." Watch one of those shows for 18,995,876 time before you watch these. Unless you don't mind, of course, seeing a genius work with lackluster material, usuually getting lackluster results. Someday, hopefully, the Desi Arnaz-produced first season of this program will become more widely available. Those episodes are true classics. These are not.

The problem with this and other "Lucy Show" collections is not just the quality of the scripts, which are among the worst in the series. This handful of eps must be in the public domain or else they wouldn't be available--the same ones--again and again. They are not enhanced or remastered, they are old, faded prints with pops and focus problems all the way. A better source would be Columbia House subscription series--which I understand includes the black and whites. These eps, which pay no royalties to any of the original participants at all or their estates, are a ripoff of fans and display no respect for the queen of TV. Shameful. Don't waste your money. Commercial free yes, but not worth it.

I was also a bit disappointed when I saw the poor quality of the picture in this DVD. It looks like it was recorded off the TV. It looks a little fuzzy and washed out if you ask me. Also what the other customer said about skipping, mine does that too.
However, it's still possible to enjoy if you put the poor quality aside, so I gave it 3 stars.
If picture quality isn't that important to you, then you might be interested. If picture quality is of high importance to you, however, I would probably skip to the next one...
