"I Love Lucy" is one of THE best television shows ever... this proves it!!
12 November 2001 | by Funkypizza2001See all my reviews

I must say that Lucy, Ricky, Ethel and Fred are classic, and will be considered one of the best in the business for the rest of time. This special proves how great and funny and how entertaining this show was. It had the Top 10 lucy episodes, and of course,the "Vitavetavegamin" episode was ranked #1.

Comedy like this isn't around these day, and I think if we still had Lucille Ball on this Earth, it would be more entertaining. It is very hard to face the fact that they are all gone.

I give the special **** out of ***** stars. I give the show, itself ***** stars out of ***** stars. This special proves how magical this show was.
