Default Here's Lucy - Season Four DVD Review

Lucy Carter, her daughter Kim, and her brother-in-law Harry are back again in the fourth season of Here's Lucy! The third major television series starring Lucille Ball (or fourth if you count The Lucy-Desi Comedy Hour as a separate series) is essentially a reworking of the later seasons of The Lucy Show, but with a different workplace (an employment agency) and Lucy having teenage kids at home. This season is the first season of the series without Desi Arnaz, Jr. in the role of Craig, however. Kim is still at home, but is about to go off to college and will be leaving the series at the end of the season... but not permanently.

The fourth season of the series gets a bit more back into the domestic side of Lucy, as opposed to the previous season, which seemed to focused on getting big guest stars (who can forget the Elizabeth Taylor appearance from the third season?). However, there are still plenty of celebrities (and often times, celebrities playing non-celebrity characters in this season) popping up at the employment agency, bringing twenty four more fun-filled episodes to the fourth season of Here's Lucy.

Is there a reason the last episode on every disc is 27 minutes instead of 25, or is this a typo?

No typo. Some episodes have original commercials, so they are over 25 minutes!

Nope, Kim never left the series at all. They did a pilot episode at the end of the fourth season for a Lucie Arnaz series, but it didn't sell, so Lucie was right back on the show from the very first episode of the fifth season. She never left.

I'm confused about one part of your review. Are the original commercials from The Lucy-Desi Comedy Hour different than the ones that are included within a handful of episodes.

I'm wondering because it would be weird if they had inserted commercials from LDCH into Here's Lucy episodes. But you didn't mention the commercials, unless I missed it somewhere.

Great review though! Can't wait to get the set.

Cool

I'm looking forward especially to the original commercials. They're always fun!

Lucie Arnaz does not leave the series, but at some point, Kim does move out of the house and into her own apartment, but I think that may not be til season 6. And Desi Jr. (Craig) returns for one episode in season 5, Lucy & Joe Namath.

I miss Craig. It's so hard to get into watching those Season 4 episodes. Craig should've shown up.

Overall, it was a weak season. There were some moments here and there, but nothing stellar. I hope the 5th and 6th seasons are better.
