Fantastic!
30 October 2002 | by StreepFan126See all my reviews

These episodes, like "I Love Lucy" were priceless. But what I think made these stand out, were its guest stars. The best episode was "The Celebrity Next Door" with guest star Tallulah Bankhead. The scene where Lucy tries to make Tallualh look bad on stage is timeless. Another great episode was the one with Fred MacMurray, where the Richardos and Mertzes join MacMurray on a uranium hunt in Nevada. This show is a must see for any Lucy fan!
