Every once in a rare great while, a new TV show comes along that fulfills, in its own particular niche, every promise of the often harassed new medium. Such a show, it is a genuine pleasure to report, is I Love Lucy.
If the story line wasn't exactly inspiring, nonetheless it had flexibility that permitted for a full blown explosion of Miss Bail's comedic talents.
Watching ''I Love Lucy'' today, you realize how complex Lucy Ricardo really was. And this complexity is what makes the show so enduringly hilarious, so relevant.
Lucy reminds viewers that it's possible for women to be hilarious when playing something other than a nag or killjoy.
Miss Ball is a funny young woman, all right, but you couldn't prove it by her new television show.
These episodes are all quite funny, and Gale Gordon shows up in two of them as Ricky's boss.
I Love Lucy is more than just a really, really, funny show - it's an enduring piece of television history.
Audience Reviews for I Love Lucy: Season 1
Jul 26, 2020Sometimes deeply funny but most of the time I think it is trying too hard.
Feb 12, 2020An absolute delight. Incredibly entertaining and funny, with outstanding performances by THE Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz.
Oct 28, 2019This season started the legend we call "I Love Lucy"! I love the show and everything about it! And my favorite episode is "Lucy Thinks Ricky Is Trying To Murder Her". I Love this show so much!
Dec 21, 2017No television show will ever top I Love Lucy for many reasons!
Oct 23, 2017How can I start describing 'I Love Lucy'? Well, I do. 'I Love Lucy' is about the most entertaining motion picture you can watch, and it is entertainment about entertainment, a TV show meant for the happy consumerism of its time. Lucille Ball, Desi Arnaz, Vivian Vance and William Frawley are always pleasant names to the ear, sounding like popular culture and good souvenirs. Each episode of I Love Lucy is 25 minutes of pure pleasure and fun in a good old fashioned America, it blends slapstick delight to its tale of neighborhood, friendship and family marvelously well, and it is a mixture of circumstances, which altogether (the whole six seasons) are an extraordinary variety of situations. This opening season is an extremely enjoyable start to the show (and to television) which features some of the best-known episodes, including the legendary 'Lucy Does a TV Commercial' and 'The Audition', but also some of my personal favorites such as 'New Neighbors', 'The Gossip', 'Pioneer Woman', 'The Kleptomaniac', 'The Freezer', 'Ricky Asks for a Raise' and many more. 'I Love Lucy' is comedy and TV at their very best.
