Although the complete series is expensive, Walmart has the best price I could find and purchasing the box set is much cheaper than buying each season individually. The complete set is enchanced with bonus features, including behind the scenes, production notes, guest cast, additional scenes, and flubs. The I Love Lucy show is a classic, with a cast of real talent, and a quality of entertainment that is lacking in television today.
This DVD was of excellent quality, and I have purchased the other DVD's in this set from the older, more expensive videos. The only drawback is the cover, I preferred the original ones with photographs of Lucy, but the quality is just the same as the original series.
While I do enjoy the this DVD, it is not the complete 1st season. I noticed the \"Too many Crooks\" episode is missing. I've only missed this one so far. Made me kind of mad because considering that's the real reason I bought this season. It was on the Hallmark channel the other day and they just butchered it. I decided to order it right away so I could see in its entirety, and its not on the DVD.
I've been watching this show ever since I saw it on TV Land. The thematic ideas are present, and I adore monochromatic television. Lucy is hilarious, although they do reuse Ricky's Cuban accent a little too much. Go Lucy!
My daughter loves to watch the old \"I Love Lucy\" episodes. She already had one season and wanted more. So, I purchased two more seasons for her birthday. Lots of episodes, and they are hilarious!! It would be difficult to outdo crazy 'ol Lucy!!!
