Great Fun
15 April 2010 | by summerfieldsSee all my reviews

This is the one where Lucy gets to actually play in Ricky's band ("haha - isn't that the craaazziesst 'A' you ever heard" - "slip me some skin, Gates!" - "Or don't you dig bebop-bebop?") says Ms Ricardo.

The scene where Lucy opens the closet door to find a strange man hidden therein is split second perfection - hilarious.

Of course, Lucy gets revenge on Ricky's dirty trick in the end.

They will never make a show like this one ever again.

Thank God for the gift of film - Desi was so wise to film this evergreen joy: he had foresight!

I am partial to the first four years of the show: there is a certain elusive magical quality the show exuded which vanished after Jess Oppenheimer (a real genius) left over control issues with Desi.

But the final two seasons are still grade A!

Just not A+
