More Buzz About "I Love Lucy: The Final Seasons"

Lucy fans everywhere are excited about purchasing "I Love Lucy: The Final Seasons 7, 8 & 9" (a.k.a. "The Lucy-Desi Comedy Hour") when it's released on Tuesday, March 13. It's hard not to get excited now that DVD reviews and Lucy mentions are starting to pour in!

The March 13th issue of Good Housekeeping's Quick & Simple Magazine (in stores now) features this blurb and trivia quiz about "I Love Lucy: The Final Seasons 7,8 & 9" being released on DVD:

Mike Restaino of , who doesn't seem to be a devout Lucille Ball Fan, gave the season set a favorable review and seemed impressed with the set's special features:

As with other seasons of I Love Lucy on DVD, this set comes with some nice bonuses. The uncut version of Lucy Takes a Cruise to Havana is hilarious (though not having much knowledge of the broadcast version, I’m not sure what is new here), and the color set footage of the all-too-familiar I Love Lucy shooting locale is a trip. (Can you guess what color the walls are painted?) We also get a few enjoyable – if slight – deleted scenes, a blooper reel, the original openings and closings to the show, some original cast commercials and a promotion spot, some animation from the show’s first airings, a few song selections (that take you to some of this set’s better musical moments), and some production notes and guest cast information.

Long Live Lucy Member Mr. Mooney (Mike) has been helping us keep track of how many days until the set is released. Come share in the countdown fun!
