About the TV-Show
I Love Lucy is an American television sitcom that originally aired on CBS from October 15, 1951, to May 6, 1957, with a total of 180 half-hour episodes spanning six seasons. The show starred Lucille Ball, her then real-life husband Desi Arnaz, Vivian Vance, and William Frawley. It followed the life of Lucy Ricardo (Ball), a young middle-class housewife in New York City, who either concocted plans with her best friends Ethel and Fred Mertz (Vance and Frawley) to appear alongside her bandleader husband Ricky Ricardo (Arnaz) in his nightclub, or tried numerous schemes to mingle with, or be a part of show business. After the series ended in 1957, a modified version continued for three more seasons with 13 one-hour specials; it ran from 1957 to 1960. It was first known as The Lucille Ball-Desi Arnaz Show and later in reruns as The Lucy-Desi Comedy Hour.I Love Lucy became the most-watched show in the United States in four of its six seasons, and it was the first to end its run at the top of the Nielsen ratings (an accomplishment later matched only by The Andy Griffith Show in 1968 and Seinfeld in 1998).
Another vintage Tv Show I am putting on my Favorites List! This is such a classic and I haven’t seen it, being that I’m from Europe. So now Thanks to technology I could watch it and It was amazing. I can totally see why it was (and still is) so popular. It’s easy to watch, funny, and has such a lovable cast. My concern with any old ‘classic” is …How racist and sexist it really is? And I can say it wasn’t that bad(just by watching the first season, can’t comment on the others yet). Yes, it has a big emphasis on the “women place” at home and “men’s place” at the workplace. But taking into the account the year and what was “expected” from people and families in particular at that time,I can’t really criticize. So overall I’m very happy with this TV show, it’s perfect for casual watching when you cook or clean. (And my boyfriend’s parrots love the opening)

Till next time
The first time I heard about Munsters was two years ago when I looked up The Addams family original tv show. As someone who didn’t grow up in America and didn’t watch reruns of old sitcoms
(like really old) like the Addams family, I was intrigued. The only thing why I didn’t watch any episodes till this day was because they are in black and white, and to be honest this wasn’t something I was into. But now finding all of the episodes on Youtube in amazing quality I was like”Why not watch it!”. I watched the first season this week and here are my thoughts…
Who are the Munsters?
So the family consists of 5 family members we see in every episode(and some more who come and go). There are Lily(vampire) and Herman(Frankensteins monster), a married couple, they have a son whose name is Eddie(a werewolf).Grandpa(Lilies dad and a vampire) who makes different experiments in the basement, and then we have the only “normal” family member Marylin(she is Lilie’s niece). She is a “normal” teen who wants to find love and be more like her family. The Munsters live at 1313 Mockingbird Lane in the city of Mockingbird Heights, a fictional suburb in California. And they have a pet Dragon. The running gag of the series is that the family, while decidedly odd, consider themselves fairly typical working-class people of the era.
My Favorite Family member- Lily
In the first season, she is played by Yvonne De Carlo , and I can say I loved her in this role! I loved her look and how involved she was with her son and niece. And I can say …that contour ,giiirrrlll what are you using?!
A family of friendly monsters have misadventures, never quite understanding why people react to them so strangely. The Munsters are a weird but honest family. … Marilyn (their niece) is the only normal one (that is the ugly duck of the family). I can say just one thing…Why isn’t it remade?! I would love to see a 2020 spin on this unique family and how they deal with everyday life. I really like that this family is not overly rich like The Addams, but are just middle classed family living quietly in the suburbs, thinking about kids’ college funds and how to save/make some extra money on the side. I felt like I could relate to them much more than the Addams.
Would I recommend watching it?
Will I watch the 2 season?
