Lucy and her husband, Ricky Ricardo, are living in the country with their best friends and old landlords, Fred and Ethel Mertz. Lucy is still getting into trouble with her sidekick Ethel, but in this sequel there is a famous guest star in each episode for her to bug. Written by
The Ricardo's Connecticut neighbors, the Ramsey family, (Ralph, Betty or their son, Bruce), appear in nine of the final thirteen episodes of I Love Lucy (1951). Lucy seems to develop a relationship with Betty Ramsey (sometimes to Ethel's disapproval, most likely because Betty Ramsey and Ethel Mertz were elementary school classmates, in Albaquerque, New Mexico, thirty to forty years earlier) plus their sons, Ricky Ricardo & Bruce Ramsey become friends. However, during The Lucy-Desi Comedy Hour (1957) the Ramsey family was dropped, and their names are only mentioned twice, as babysitters for Little Ricky. See more »
The best episode of the entire series was the one with Tallulah Bankhead, as for once, Lucille Ball had a co-star and a female one at that who could match her toe-to-toe in everything. If Lucy dished it out, Tallulah dished it right back and then some. I don't know if it was scripted or not, but in one scene, it looked as if Lucy could have killed Tallulah just by her looks alone!!
It was the scene where Tallulah says.."when Miss Bankhead is bored, Miss Bankhead will tell you"--the reaction shot of Lucy was priceless!! The other episodes were passable, but this particular one is the stand-out.
