The colors are just too bright. Lucy’s hair is too red, the kitchen walls are too green, Ethel’s hair is yellow (!), etc.

I wish they’d pay this guy to do it: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=IbL-VUZmL30. He did this ILL scene (he also colorized a scene from the first season of the Lucy Show). His color choices seem much more natural.

But a large portion of the country simply tunes out black and white shows because they consider them for old fogies! Like most people under 40.

I prefer color because the rainbow of colors is more appealing to the eye.

They probably did that for the glam effect. They want Lucy to look as hot as possible. Even Ethel looks better in color.

On the flip side Fred looks fatter in color and Ricky more Cuban!

Thumbs up Send a bouquet to the colorizers

I thought the colors were absolutely great, each and every item seen in the picture was a sharp clear separate color. And as for Lucy's hair not looking natural, did you ever see Lucy's hair in the real color Lucy Shows? An extremely bright Nehi Orange color, I suppose that's natural. In the ILL episode her hair was a more natural reddish red color not the Big Bad Orange color (a color name used by AMC for their Hornets and other cars from the early '70's). If you look at the cover pictures on the ILL DVD sets you'll see the same red color that was used so brilliantly in the TV episodes last night. The skin tones (the hardest to produce) were spot on too. You got to really stretch your neck way out or just be a plain old fuddy duddy who will never admit perfection even when it's right in front of you to find a single reason to complain about the marvels of wonderful modern day colorization.

My one and only wish (aside from immortality so I can see this wish come true) is to see the COMPLETE I Love Lucy & Honeymooners Classic 39 and Dennis the Menace and seasons 1 & 2 of Adv. of Superman ALL COLORIZED brightly and unashamedly. Oh what a wonderful and colorful world it would be.

I think they did a great job, but I agree that the guy who post the YouTube videos would do an even better one. It literally looks exactly like it was filmed in color, they should really hire that guy I really don't know what they're thinking haha. And he would probably charge a lot less than some huge company. I wish I worked for CBS, I'd hire him ahha.

LOL - some of us are just more discerning. I do think the colorizations done by Pop Colorture (linked above) are close to perfection. I would love to see the whole series done in color, but not using the color palette they’re using for the CBS specials.

Someday, they’ll perfect this.

[QUOTE=TV Guy;5528422]I wonder why they chose Bonus Bucks - I don’t think it’s one of the better ones.



Bonus Bucks is one episode I never liked. When the episode comes on I always pass it by. For all they went through, poor Fred and Ethel has to suffer through the 4 some only got a dollar profit.
