About this tv show


"Men Are Messy" raises the stakes of the eternal argument of what is "lived in" and what's a pigsty when Lucy purposely trashes the apartment for Ricky's photo shoot, not realizing the magazine isLook. In "The Fur Coat," Lucy mistakes a mink rented for one of Ricky's dancers as an anniversary gift for herself. "Lucy Jealous of Girl Singer" finds the dutiful wife overlooking a gossip column item about her husband only to find torn black lace in his pocket, which, of course, requires a stint in the chorus line to straighten out matters. In "Drafted," the most forced of the episodes, Lucy and Ethel think their men are going off to war, while the men believe both wives are with child. Socks are knitted, party guests are stuffed in the closet, and at the end the entire cast sings "Jingle Bells" in a piece restored from the original Christmas Eve broadcast.--Kimberly Heinrichs
