It was refreshing to see Lucy in something new.
15 January 2002 | by kevinkglennSee all my reviews

"Life with Lucy" may not have fared well in the ratings, but Lucy will always be loved. I enjoyed this show just simply because I got to see Lucy doing something new on television. Personally, I would like to see these episodes aired more often. Any true "Lucy" fan will enjoy anything Lucy did, regardless of what the critics say.
