Default The Mothers-in-Law - The Complete Series DVD Review

It's a funny family feud from Desi Arnaz and the writers of I Love Lucy! Set in the swinging late 1960s, The Mothers-in-Law centers on the laugh-filled misadventures of longtime neighbors who become related when their children suddenly get married.

Emmy Award-Winning actress Eve Arden (Our Miss Brooks, Grease) stars as Eve Hubbard, the sophisticated wife of straight-laced lawyer Herbert Hubbard (Herbert Rudley). Comedienne Kaye Ballard plays Kaye Buell, the outspoken wife of bombastic television writer Roger Buell (Roger C. Carmel and Richard Deacon). The strong-willed mothers are determined to meddle in the lives of newlyweds Jerry (Jerry Fogel) and Suzie (Deborah Walley).

This deluxe set of The Mothers-in-Law (1967-1969, NBC-TV) features all 56 color episodes digitally remastered for superior quality plus a wealth of rare special features. Guest stars include Don Rickles, Paul Lynde, Rob Reiner, Jimmy Durante, Larry Storch, Ozzie Nelson, Beverly Garland, Alice Ghostley, Desi Arnaz, Jr. and Desi Arnaz.

Mine arrived today, but it's going to be a while before I watch any episodes. I only watch 1 episode of 1 TV show a day. I watch one series sequentially from beginning to end. Right now I'm on season 4 of I Love Lucy (tonight's the Harpo Marx episode). The Mothers-in-Law will come after the last episode of ILL.

I haven't seen this series in a long time but remember an episode that guest starred Desi. I'm looking forward to seeing that again.

I received mine on Thursday and watched the two parter with the "Two Desi Anraz's" as they were billed in the credits, LOL! Lots of good musical numbers in the second part and a young (14 and a half) year old Desi Junior playing the drums was a sight to see.

Desi Sr. still had great timing and his expressions were great. It's a real shame he never acted much after I Love Lucy left the air. "The Matador makes a movie" from the second season is great! Another classic episode for sure.
