Don't ignore me
19 November 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What do you do when your husband reads the newspaper and totally ignores you every morning? Well, first you try to dress up in a way that he has to notice you, then you can try to be like one of the guys. When that turns out to be a disaster. the only thing you can do is...

The whole thing is so ridiculous, it's comical. Only Lucy can pull off something like this. I think any other actress would make this look stupid.

The early shows do a really good job at developing the show's personality. Between Lucy and Ricky and Lucy and Ethel, the show is just classic...
