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
A major reason the Mertzes were able to move to Connecticut during the the ten final episodes of I Love Lucy (1951) was running the egg farm on the Ricardo's property in Westport, Connecticut. However, during the entire run of The Lucy-Desi Comedy Hour (1957), the business was never mentioned nor shown except in passing in only one episode of season one. Although Fred Mertz secured employment during this period as Ricky's Band Manager, he had filled the same position during earlier band trips to California (in season four) and Europe (in season five).

I love the Lucy-Desi Comedy Hour! Since the show is an hour, and I Love Lucy was only thirty minutes, Lucy has an even bigger chance of getting herself into a mess. Another thing that's special about it is that there are always several guest stars that add more drama to the story. Little Ricky has more of a part. He's so cute!! I really like the country setting. The Ricardo's house is beautiful. And, of course, there's Fred and Ethel! In this series, the Ricardos and Mertzes go on lots of trips together, and you feel like you are vacationing with them instead of watching it on television. They've been to so many places: Sun Valley, Japan, out West, and more! The scenes are beautifully shot. The Lucy-Desi Comedy Hour is definitely a classic. I wish they had made more episodes. Give it a try sometime. It's a pleasant way to spend a Saturday night. You won't be disappointed.
