In the episode where Lucy and Viv are stuck in the shower and it starts flooding, Lucille Ball was actually drowning for a few seconds, she was stuck underwater and couldn't get herself up. When you see Viv hoisting her up, she is actually saving her life. They kept this take for the episode that aired. See more »
The black and white episodes were the funniest of the entire series. Maybe this has to do with Vivian Vance, who was better here than in the "I Love Lucy" show. I always thought that Viv was the glue that held those earlier episodes together. Who could ever forget the episode about "Crazy Crunch" or of the Christmas episode about "Chris Crinkle".
