Wow, I remember thinking a few years ago, will they ever release 'The Lucy Show' and 'Here's Lucy' on DVD? then early I heard about Paramount/CBS releasing the first season of 'The Lucy Show' I was very happy with that news, and bought it when it came out, then I heard that MPI Home Video was planning to release all 6 seasons of 'Here's Lucy' I was blown away, and I was so looking forward to getting the first season, unfortunatly, I had to wait until my birthday of this year to get it, but I'm so happy I finally have it, and just the other day, I received this season from Amazon, and tomorrow I am receiving season 3, I am so happy these companies are finally giving us Lucy fans our due, many of us have waited for years for this, and our dreams finally come true.
I've been a fan of Lucille Ball ever since I can remember, of course 'I Love Lucy' is great, but so is 'The Lucy Show' and 'Here's Lucy' as all 3 shows are different, but you know one thing, you're getting Lucy!
The quality job MPI has done with these episodes are remarkable, from the crystal clear picture and sound, to the very vivid colors, I doubt this series looked as colorful when it originally ran, plus, with all the great remastering, you get a load of extras, including the original syndication promo's, which I really like watching before I watch the season, so I know what I'm looking forward to, since I haven't seen this series since it was ran for a while on 'Nick at Nite' back in the mid 1990's I believe it was, so being able to relive my childhood and laugh at these shows again is an absolute treat, I'm 28 years old, and find TV shows today to be rubbish, especially the sitcoms today, THIS is comedy, not 'Everybody Hates Chris' and such.
Anyways, I've ranted long enough, if you bought the first season of this and was pleased as I was with the quality and such, then you must buy this season, they did just as nice of job with this one, and I expect nothing less from the 3rd season, thanks MPI!
