Synopsis


Though it was hard to top the "pregnancy" throughline that permeated the second season of I Love Lucy, the series maintained its ranking as America's favorite TV program throughout its third year on the air. Back for more fun and laughter were Lucille Ball as wacky housewife Lucy Ricardo, Desi Arnaz as her long-suffering Cuban bandleader husband Ricky Ricardo, and Vivian Vance and William Frawley as Ethel and Fred Mertz, the Ricardos' best friends. New to the series (though never given billing) were twin infants Michael and Joseph Meyer as the Ricardos' baby son, Ricky Jr., aka "Little Ricky." Highlights of season three include the episode in which Lucy bets Ricky and the Mertzes that she can't go 24 hours without telling a fib, the foredoomed efforts by Lucy and Ethel to open a dress shop, the Ricardos' and Mertzes' plan to purchase a diner, and the chaotic results when Lucy and Ricky subject themselves to a joint magazine interview. Prominent among the supporting players this season is Doris Singleton in her first appearance as Lucy's garrulous friend, Caroline Appleby. Also, I Love Lucy tentatively dips its toes into the guest-star pool during season three with golf-pro Jimmy Demaret and singer-comedian Tennessee Ernie Ford making memorable appearances.

    One of the rare classic TV sitcoms that can still be funny even after many viewings. Lucille Ball was brilliant. Enough said. But the supporting cast are all wonderful as well. Highly recommended.
