Here's Lucy Season Two- Another Fantastic Season Is Here!
Verified purchase
Season One of Here's Lucy is not even out yet, and Season Two is all ready to order for it's November 3, 2009 release! This is great news for Lucy fans that these shows will be out quickly, and I hope the film quality is just as good as the quick releases of this great series! Season Two starts out with a family trip out west, and after that, the great guest stars just keep on coming show after show! The first of these guest stars is Patty Andrews, who re-enacts the famous WWII Andrews Sisters singing act with Lucy and daughter Lucie Arnaz- they are just great! There are so many great performances by Milton Berle, Paul Winchell, Gary Morton, Johnny Carson, Ed McMahon, Jack LaLanne, Liberace, Lawrence Welk, Ann-Margret, Wally Cox, Alan Hale, Wayne Newton, Carol Burnett and many others. Even the wonderful Vivian Vance returns to guest star as Lucy's friend Vivian Jones. Lucy's real life 77 year old mother DeDe Ball (she passed away in 1977 at age 84) is seen as the woman in the audience on the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson. DeDe was in the viewing audience of every single show of I Love Lucy, The Lucy Show and Here's Lucy. They say you can hear her distinctive laugh and even hear her talking (DeDe always said UH-OH when her daughter Lucy was in trouble) on the background tracks in Lucy's shows, but this is the rarest time that you actually get to see Lucy's mom on a show! This second season is just wonderful with so many great stars and performances, one of the best being Desi Arnaz Jr. and Ann-Margret singing together and if Season Three comes out just as quickly, it won't be long before we get to see the highest rated show of Here's Lucy, which is the first show of Season Three-Lucy Meets The Burton's!

Featuring on Here's Lucy are:
Lucille Ball as Lucille Carter
Gale Gordon as Harrison Otis (Uncle Harry) Carter
Lucie Arnaz as Kim Carter
Desi Arnaz Jr. as Craig Carter

Lucy hits the road in Season Two of HERE'S LUCY
Verified purchase
Season Two of HERE'S LUCY kicked off with an unprecedented, four-episode "location" shoot, which follows Lucy and the gang on a quest to return a winnebago to a friend in San Francisco - instead, Lucy decides to take several detours, including a visit to the Air Force Academy, a Native American settlement, and even a trip down the fearsome Colorado rapids. Taking the show out of the comfort of a studio brought the production team even closer together, and gave Lucie Arnaz and Desi Arnaz Jr. their first taste of what was involved in being a real "movie star". Helmed by one of Lucy's best directors - George Marshall - the four opening HERE'S LUCY Season Two episodes are surely amongst the all-time favourites on every fan's list. Beverly Garland from "Decoy" shows up in an uncredited bit as a secretary in Part Two of "Lucy Goes to the Air Force Academy".

The guest stars come out to shine in further episodes, too. In "Lucy and the Andrews Sisters", Patty Andrews recruits Lucy and Kim (Lucie Arnaz) to recreate the famous musical trio for a fan-club meeting - complete with Craig (Desi Arnaz Jr.) playing Bing Crosby! Wayne Newton returns for his second appearance, this time shot at his real-life Las Vegas horse ranch, where he and the kids do a cute musical number with the horses. Lovely Ann-Margret steals the show with Craig when they perform a groovy song called "Country Magic" in "Lucy and Ann-Margret".

Carol Burnett returns again in "Lucy and Carol Burnett", but this time she plays the fictitious Carol Krausmeyer, a fellow secretary, who ruthlessly competes against Lucy in the Secretary Beautiful contest, hosted by Robert Alda. The back-and-forth banter between the two is especially hilarious in this show. "Lucy and the Laundress" sees Lucy having to secretly work in a Chinese laundry in order to pay off some damage when she rear-ends the laundry truck. Lucy and Viv (Vivian Vance) travel south of the border in "Lucy and Viv Visit Tijuana", only for Harry (Gale Gordon) to be arrested at customs for smuggling illegal contraband!

Two episodes, intentionally or not, actually hark back to some of the classic episodes from the California season of "I Love Lucy". In "Lucy and Lawrence Welk", Lucy welcomes a visit from near-sighted Viv, who desperately wants to meet Lawrence Welk. The closest she can get, however, is wax statue of the TV star. This is one of the rare HERE'S LUCY shows which has both of Lucy's mainstay female cohorts - Vivian Vance and Mary Jane Croft - in the same episode. In "Lucy and Johnny Carson", Lucy wins Stump the Band and enjoys a meal at the Brown Derby with Johnny Carson and Ed McMahon - hold the tossed salad!

As to be expected from MPI Home Video, the extra features are very worthwhile. Introductions for every episode featuring either Lucie, Desi Jr., or one of the surviving cast/crew members; the new featurette "Here's Lucy On Location" which goes into detail on the four-episode season opener, a rare radio interview with Carol Burnett (recorded during her Broadway run in "Fade Out-Fade In"), original network promos, plus lots more.

Nothing tops Lucy
Verified purchase
Having the seasons of this series released so quickly is such a treat. Season 3 is coming out in June. I grew up loving Lucy and this series HERE'S LUCY was the one airing in prime time during my high school years. Such memories and such classic antics from Lucille Ball. Many try to compare this series to I LOVE LUCY and you just can't do that. Lucy managed to have I LOVE LUCY, THE LUCY SHOW and HERE'S LUCY be very different. Many don't realize that on the history making I LOVE LUCY Lucille Ball was older than she was playing. She was already in her mid 40s. With each continuous series Lucy continued to master her unique brand of comedy with timing and precision that is awe-inspiring.

The character Lucy has always gotten into trouble and many situations were a little over the top but made believable by Lucy's performance. She always made the character of Lucy believable and the audience would always cheer her on thru her antics. Also, no matter how slapstick the comedy got Lucy was always a lady and had immense class. So as she aged, her comedy in her series became very appropriate to her age. Never crass, always classy and always one of a kind. This season of HERE'S LUCY has some great guest stars like Carol Burnett, Patti Andrews and Milton Berle. There are also some roadtrip storylines. But for me the best episodes were always the simple ones that took place either in her home or the office - CARTER'S UNIQUE EMPLOYMENT AGENCY. To see Lucille Ball use her immense skill in LUCY'S BURGLAR ALARM is priceless and worth the price of this set in itself. She is robbed and hilarious as she lectures her children with the robber standing right there. But when the officer comes to whom she is greatly attracted Lucy flirts up a storm and it is priceless. It is these moments where her pure unique artistry shines through.

Comedy has changed through the years and today we get different styles of performing but no one will ever match the Queen herself. To watch an episode of HERE'S LUCY shows you that with each step she took Lucy owned the screen with a talent so precise and unique with timing so exquisite there could only be one like her. Highly recommended.

Us Lucy fans are getting spoiled lately!
Verified purchase
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!

Here's Lucy - Season 2 Coming to DVD
Verified purchase
I can't believe that season 2 of "Here's Lucy" will be out on November 3, 2009. I have already pre-ordered by copy of this wonderful classic comedy series. Season two of "Here's Lucy" aired on CBS-TV during the 1969-70 TV season on Monday night at 8:30 pm. "Here's Lucy" finished no. 6 in the ratings with a 23.9 rating, up three notches from season one which finished in 9th place. Lucy earned three Golden Globe nominations as Best Actress In A Comedy Series. I know that all 24 episodes will be released with the same loving care as the first 24 episodes. I also hope that MPI includes many bonus features as they did with season one. The first 4 episodes of season two are shot on location and are really great. Lucy Runs the Rapids is a true classic. After these episodes we have great episodes with Lucy and Lawrence Welk (Vivian Vance is also in this episode) and is one of the best Here's Lucy episodes! Other epiosodes include Ann Margret, Carol Burnett (hysterical!), Johnny Carson, Liberace, Patti Andrews and Milton Berle. We also have Vivan Vance again in Lucy and Viv Go To Tijuana (pure joy) and a truly wonderful epiosde with Lucy and Gale Gordon dressing up as hippies in Lucy At The Drive-In Movie. This series proved that Lucille Ball is and always will be the First Lady of Television and Queen of Comedy. Monday night has never been the same since this series ended in 1974. Lucy is indeed a true Icon. A+ for the series and A+ to MPI for releasing this series and giving it the recognition it deserves. I can't wait for the Lucy special "Lucy Calls The President" that will be released sometime in early 2010. Thank you MPI!

Most of a lot of the episodes have some of the greatest stars that guest starred on the series and I can truly say Lucille Ball and Gale Gordon in both comedy series The Lucy Show and Here's Lucy always were clean family entertainment for the whole family.Tv back then in the 1960s and 1970s on CBS you could be sure was always clean family entertainment.Nobody had to worry what their children were watching and there wasn't no need for ratings of G,PG,etc.It was always fun to enjoy family shows always were G without a rating at the start of the show.There was lots of laughs and sometimes unexpected comic antics extra by Lucy.The show is still so fun and just as enjoyable as it was on CBS.The musical numbers and dances were always an extra treat to enjoy watching! If any families out there have ever told their grandchildren how clean and entertaining Tv actually used to be ought to get out and shop for Here's Lucy and other fine family fun family tv series DVDs and have fun reliving really good Tv with their family get togethers or just take a night or two to get away from the news and have some Tv fun.One thing Lucille Ball's shows do for anyone feeling down make you laugh and today's Christian doctors say people should get at least 4 to 5 times of good laughter to maintain being more healthy.

This series is a step down from the earlier series like "The Lucy Show", but it`s still pretty good. Much better than the crud on tv
these days. Lucy is still a nut and Gale Gordon is still there for her to aggervate. You can hardly go wrong with these two.
Buy it, watch it, and fondly remember the good old days when tv comedies were actually funny instead of just stupid and irritating
like they are today.

This was okay. I am a huge I Love Lucy fan...and the same humor is just not there with this series. Her two kids in real life play her kids in the show. No Vivian Vance. Neither of the kids are very good actors and that is so evident it is hard for Lucille Ball to carry the show.
