When MPI Home Video announced early in 2009 that they would release all the seasons of "Here's Lucy" they were not kidding. Even before "Here's Lucy-Season 1" has been released MPI has announced that the second season's worth of episodes will be coming out in November. If these boxsets continue to be released in this manner (2 sets per year), it means that we fans will have the entire "Here's Lucy" library of shows by the end of 2011!
The second year of "Here's Lucy" continued Lucille Ball's dominance in the national Nielsens. Finishing the year at #6 proved to the audience and critics that "Here's Lucy's" success was no fluke: audiences watched the series in droves and the show became a Monday night staple like its predecessors "I Love Lucy" and "The Lucy Show". Some wonderful guest stars popped up in the second year including Johnny Carson, Lawrence Welk, Carol Burnett, Ann-Margret, Milton Berle, and even Liberace. Vivian Vance came back for two episodes and her chemistry with Lucy is evident.
This set features 24 excellent shows that are remastered from their original prints, is 610 minutes long, and the sound is English audio with English subtitles. Among the many bonus features in this set are the following: new video introductions by Lucie Arnaz and Desi Arnaz Jr., a featurette called "Here's Lucy On Vacation", "Let's Talk To Lucy- a loss interview with Lucy friend Carol Burnett, Special Footage, Treasures from Lucy's Vault: a "Here's Lucy" slideshow, Production Files, and Original CBS and syndication promos.
