A new Lucille Ball DVD collection from Time Life will include episodes of her last sitcom, until now unavailable on DVD. But only four of them. Lucy: The Ultimate Collection collects 76 episodes of I Love Lucy, The Lucy-Desi Comedy Hour, The Lucy Show, Here’s Lucy, and Life with Lucy, plus a wide variety of bonus features.
Life with Lucy premiered on ABC on September 20th, 1986. It reunited Lucille Ball and actor Gale Gordon, her co-star on The Lucy Show and Here’s Lucy. The network aired eight of the 13 produced episodes before cancelling the show due to low ratings. It has never been officially released on VHS or DVD. Lucy: The Ultimate Collection includes the following four episodes: “One Good Grandparent Deserves Another” (the series premiere), “Lucy Makes a Hit with John Ritter,” “Lucy Is a Sax Symbol,” and “Mother of the Bride” (with guest star Audrey Meadows).
Lucy: The Complete Collection costs $99.95 and is only available from the Time Life website.
