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 »
This continuation of I Love Lucy is nowhere near the classic sitcom. The best of the 13 episodes (by far) is The Celebrity Next Door with the incomparable Tallulah Bankhead. She steals every scene she's in and knocks every line out of the park. Lucy has met her match in this one and then some. Bankhead's personality (and talent) is like a tornado that flattens everyone in its path. Remember: "When Miss Bankhead is bored, Miss Bankhead will let you know." She can take the most mundane lines and deliver them with verve and humor that seems to come out of nowhere. She is brilliant.
The rest of the episodes pale in comparison to this episode and certainly to nearly every I Love Lucy episode. Watch The Celebrity Next Door and skip the rest of them.
