I Love Lucy (Season 5) DVD Review

Recipient of widespread critical and audience acclaim, I Love Lucy is by far one of the greatest, if not the greatest, comedy series in television history. It literally revolutionized the TV landscape forever with its creative thinking, live studio audience, experimental camera angles, and top-notch writing. Created by the talented husband and wife team of Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz, I Love Lucy became the most celebrated show of its time and helped usher in a whole new era in the American entertainment experience…

The I Love Lucy (Season 5) DVD offers a number of hilarious episodes including the season premiere “Lucy Visits Grauman’s” in which Lucy is wrapping up her extended trip to Hollywood where she’s collected a number of oddball collectibles, such as a tin can run over by Cary Grant’s car and a napkin used by Lana Turner. But when Lucy learns that John Wayne’s imprints on a concrete block in front of Grauman’s Chinese Theater have come loose, she decides to steal a real souvenir to take home… Other notable episodes from Season 5 include “Lucy Goes to a Rodeo” in which Lucy confuses Ricky’s performance on a “radio show” with his performance in a “rodeo show,” and “Paris at Last” in which Lucy’s trip to Paris is marked by her quest to find a famous artist whose paintings will one day be valuable, but the only artist she meets is a con artist who steals her blind…
