Welcome to the second season running from the fall of 1963 to the spring of 1964.Of course late 1963 brought us the world changing events of the Kennedy assassination and this year saw the fortunes of the Desilu Studios at their lowest in years.Desi Arnaz had resigned after the first 15 eps of the previous season and now Lucille Ball herself was in charge of the entire operation.Season one had been a critical and public success and so was renewed on that basis for a second season.
The second season as you watch it does not have the real kick of the first season and in fact the Lucy/Vivian chemistry seems to be fading a little.This was partly the scripts that were being created and the two sometimes had little to work with.Script writing changes would be made into the third season as their old scriptwriters from the 50s series would depart.However Lucy made one masterstroke addition to this season.It was in the form of Gale Gordon as Mr.Mooney.Gordon took over from Charles Lane;the actor who made a huge name for himself in movies and television for his seemingly eternal crankiness in his character portrayals.There was little or nothing for Ball to bounce off of with Lane whereas with Gordon,with his exceedingly droll and animated comebacks,she had a veritable cornucopia of reactions and interactions.The entire of the dynamic of the show changed from his introduction just a few eps in and it never looked back.However there was an in disputable "drag" in the show and Lucy would go further in her tweaking of the show into Season Three and onwards.One troubling factor was that Lucy was always up against her 50s shows which were huge in re-runs and the inevitable comparison always surfaced;with the new show always getting the short end.

One year after CBS/Paramount brought us Season 1 of the highly-anticipated DVD release of "The Lucy Show" comes an equally stellar release.

It's been a painfully slow wait for this one, but the end product is worth it.

Originally airing during the 1963-64 TV season on Monday nights at 8:30, the second season of "The Lucy Show" stands out for a variety of firsts.

Though CBS did not begin airing the show in color until 1965-66, these shows were the first Lucy escapades to be lensed in color.

The restoration of these episodes is phenomenal. The colors pop right out at you, from Lucy's famous flaming red 'do, to Vivian's oversaturated blue eye-shadow, to the purple and sapphire throw cushions on their sofa. If nothing else, it's fun just to watch these again and see how vibrant the colors are.

The scripts themselves are a little bit of a let-down compared to those of the stellar debut season, which was in glorious black-and-white. I always felt the writers got a little slack once Desi Arnaz stopped overseeing production on this series. (Though in my opinion, the third season saw a vast improvement in scripts).

Despite a dip in the quality of the writing, the performances are still top-notch, as Lucy and Viv never disappoint and are still delivering the goods as well as they did on "I Love Lucy".

Another milestone this season is the arrival of Gale Gordon as Theodore J. Mooney, the new bank president in charge of Widow Carmichael's trust fund. One of the better entries this season is a two-parter where Lucy accidentally locks Mr. Mooney in the bank vault--twice!

For the next eleven years, Mr. Gordon was the only constant in both this series and its' successor, "Here's Lucy".

5.0 out of 5 stars ""The Lucy Show" DVD's Continue" April 21 2010
By Terrance Richard - Published on
Format: DVD
After releasing "The Lucy Show-Season 1" on DVD last summer, CBS/Paramount is releasing the second season on July 13th, 2010. This fabulous and entertaining sitcom began its second year on September 30th, 1963, and although the series was broadcast in black and white on CBS, the shows themselves were filmed in glorious color to take advantage of huge syndication sales in the years to come. In this 4 DVD boxset 28 wonderful color episodes are included along with the following bonuses: the original "Lucille Ball Comedy Hour Special with Bob Hope"; clips from the "Opening Night" and "CBS: The Stars Address" programs; newly recorded interviews; cast commercials; and more. "The Lucy Show" finished its second year at #6 on the all-important Nielsen Ratings chart cementing itself as a television hit. This season also marks Gale Gordon's first year in his co-starring role as Mr. Mooney.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as funny as Season 1, but I did liked Mr. Mooney. July 6 2016
By Lucy - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Season 2 is definitely far from being my favorite season. I think Season 1 was the best season so far. I liked Season 1 opening credits far better where they had the stick figures of Vivian and Lucy. It had more of a classic feel to it like I Love Lucy. They should have continued that with Season 2. The Season 2 opening credits just felt very cartoonish, silly, bland, weak, and less memorable, even much inferior to the I Love Lucy series. Season 2 also began filming episodes in color. My mom and I kinda missed the black and white episodes because it took us to a much different time, but it is nice to see what Lucy and the rest look like in color, especially with Lucy's hair color. In my opinion, Lucy's hair didn't looked so red or orange-y, to me, her hair looked more like Strawberry Blonde. I also felt the make-up on Lucy and Vivian seemed a little too much and bright. It made them look too clown-ish. Their make-up weren't very noticeable when you watch them in the black and white episodes. I think their make-up should have been a more subtle/neutral color.

Now, focusing on the episodes themselves, I did not find most of them to be comical as the ones from Season 1 apart from "Lucy and Military Academy" (by far the funniest one of the season), "Lucy Plays Cleopatra", and "Lucy Is A Process Server". Some of the episodes like the one where Lucy and Viv staged a bank robbery was stupid. Most of the writing in the rest of the episodes felt really boring, weak, underwhelming, and not so humorous. I felt like the slapstick comedy that we usually see from Lucy were toned down a bit for this season. That magic had been greatly missed in most of the episodes I've seen. I feel that her greatest work is with her ex-husband Desi Arnaz. His input was very evident in Season 1 why I found it to be enjoyable and funny. She should have kept Desi as executive producer for the REST of the show's seasons, and should have also kept the same writers from Season 1.Apart from the episodes, I really did like Mr. Mooney. Does he top Ricky Ricardo? Nope, FAR from it. Ricky made Lucy much more vulnerable and humble. He brought out the cutesy, naughty little girl in her that you just want to spank, but you really can't help but love her at the same time. I do find Mr. Mooney to be more comical and charismatic than the first banker from Season 1. Finally, my last gripe is that you don't see the children as much as Season 1. In this season, they felt more like props being used from time to time. Not quite the same physical, love connection that you would see between Lucy Ricardo and her son Little Ricky. Hopefully, I will like Season 3 much better.

My Picks:

Lucy Plays Cleopatra
Kiddie Parties, INC
Lucy Goes Duck Hunting
Lucy and The Military Academy
Lucy Conducts The Symphony
Lucy Plays Florence Nightingale
Lucy And Viv Open a Restaurant

5.0 out of 5 stars I Love "The Lucy Show!" April 21 2010
By M. Rotondo - Published on
Format: DVD
The Lucy Show is Lucille Ball's follow up series to I Love Lucy. It was a very funny series, especially the years with Vivian Vance. This is a top ten series and Lucy won two Emmy awards for her work on this show. The laughs continue with the second season of the is wonderful series. This season also marks the first of any 'Lucy' series to be filmed in Color! The remastering they did with this set is spectacular! It looks as if it was filmed yesterday. The episodes are so funny, and if you want to laugh you must buy this set. If you enjoyed season one and enjoyed I Love Lucy over the years then you will love The second season of The Lucy Show. And if this DVD does well, the third season will be released quickly, so everyone go out and buy this wonderful series, and laugh along with Lucy and Vivian in living Color!

5.0 out of 5 stars Thank you Paramount April 23 2010
By MARK C. BALE - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
So glad the 2nd season of THE LUCY SHOW is coming. I am anxious to see them in near pristine condition. My understanding was that Lucille ordered all the color episodes of this series to be filmed with some sort of "soft filter" lens to smooth out her wrinkles!!!! Hence the reason why they may never be razor sharp visuals. But they should be free of dirt, scratches, splices and other imperfections visible on broadcast TV (and unofficial DVDs).

I will be picking this series up straight away, and yes, I certainly hope that Paramount will release the remaining 4 seasons in the near future.

The inclusion of the Lucille Ball/Bob Hope special is quite important on this set as it probably means that the later 1966 LUCY IN LONDON special will be included on whatever season set it is part of (it features Lucy Carmichael in London, but without Gale Gordon).

So, finally, with all the I LOVE LUCY episodes now on disc, and MPI releasing all the HERE'S LUCY (plus her later TV specials), and Paramount giving us THE LUCY SHOW, all that will remain is her LIFE WITH LUCY series - not really sure who would own the DVD rights to this.
