In this city live Lucy and Ricky Ricardo. Of course, you know Ricky as the famous orchestra leader and singer. And Lucy is the famous, um, well she's... her hair is very red. And she's married to Ricky.

An obviously pregnant Lucille Ball joins her real-life husband to make this pilot for their new show, "I Love Lucy." The episode is not very well made and lacks the chemistry that their on-air shows have. I thought the clown was pretty freaky-looking and was very glad Lucy was able to take his place!
This pilot really sets up what the show will be like. Lucy always trying to get into acting, her husband trying to keep her out of it, and them fighting and making up. I really love these two together. I've read this show was formed to save their marriage. It's so sad that the on-screen chemistry these two shared was simply that - on-screen.
Of course, I always enjoy listening to Ricky sing...
