Lucy on the Line with Chocolates
November 16, 2016  | By Eric Gould
 
David’s new book, The Platinum Age of Television: From I Love Lucy to The Walking Dead, How TV Became Terrific is now out on Amazon (in e-book and audio versions, too.) To help kick off The Platinum Age release, we’ll be featuring clips related to his study of TV genres and their evolution. For the discussion on early sitcoms, (and she’s in the book title, after all) here’s the classic bit from the 1950s I Love Lucy show with Lucy and Ethel in new chocolate manufacturing jobs… and losing big time to a haywire conveyor belt. —Eric Gould
