The Lucy Show was a pale imitation of I Love Lucy. It lacked any comedic rhythm and it was a good episode that actually produced one good laugh. As good as Lucille Ball was she could not carry the show on her own.
As far as favorite I love Lucy episodes I would have to say that my all time favorites were "Lucy's Commercial" that comes in the first season and (I can't remember when it was) the episode involving grape stomping.
One of the good things about the current availability of the HUGE variety of TV and movies that we see is that we can, fairly easily, revisit gems like these from the past.
In the last week I have rewatched several episodes from The Honeymooners, The (original) Outer Limits, Andy Griffith, Highway Patrol, Adam 12, and even an old Family Affair and an Our Miss Brooks. This new era of media availability is Nirvana for us old folks.
One thing; If anyone can point me to streaming episodes of Salvage 1 I would appreciate it.
Also remember: Senility is a wonderful thing. All this media and I NEVER have to watch a rerun.
