I LOVE LUCY: THE COMPLETE SERIES
July 22, 2013  | By David Bianculli
 

It’s amazing we haven’t given this set our Seal of Approval before this, since I Love Lucy is one of the most important and iconic series in the entire history of TV. Yet this 34-disk set, which includes all the classic 1951-56 episodes, the subsequent specials and mounds of extras, currently is on sale for less than the price of the original series DVD boxed set alone. Why love Lucy on DVD? Because even the most commonly repeated episodes are edited for television to maximize commercial slots, and the episodes you don’t know by heart often are the most fascinating. Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz, in the way they filmed I Love Lucy, changed Hollywood. But it’s still the comedy they left behind that impresses the most: And it’s all here, from candy conveyer belts to Vitameatavegamin. – DB
