Synopsis / Plot
TV Series (1951-1957). 6 seasons. 181 episodes. A daffy woman constantly strives to become a star along with her bandleader husband and gets herself in the strangest situations. Cuban Bandleader Ricky Ricardo would be happy if his wife Lucy would just be a housewife. Instead she tries constantly to perform at the Tropicana where he works, and make life comically frantic in the apartment building they share with landlords Fred and Ethel Mertz. The first major show to be put on film rather than kinescope.

Critics' reviews
  • I Love Lucy was the most watched TV show in the United States in four of its six seasons, and was the first to end its run at the top of the Nielsen ratings (an accomplishment later matched only by The Andy Griffith Show in 1968 and Seinfeld in 1998) . The show is still syndicated in dozens of languages across the world, and remains popular, with an American audience of 40 million each year. I Love Lucy is often regarded as one of the greatest and most influential sitcoms in history (wikipedia).
