Review of I Love Lucy

I Love Lucy (1951–1957)
11 July 2001
The popularity of this show is more baffling to me than the origins of the pyramids of Egypt. Every episode is exactly the same, Lucy is told not to do something, she does it anyway, she cries, and Ricky gets mad. She is not funny, just obnoxious. Don't get me wrong, I like the sitcoms of yesterday much better than the ones today. 'The Honeymooners', 'Dick Van Dyke' even the similar ''I Married Joan' are all much funnier. The only reason I can see of it's popularity is that she was the first female doing slapstick on TV, it's just to bad that the aforementioned 'I Married Joan' didn't come out first, Joan Davis is EONS funnier than Lucy Ball.
