| Not the 'Best Of', but........
.....it's still Lucy and many of her long-time co-professionals, either beside her or behind the cameras. In contrast to many emerging comedies in 1977, this is trapped in time, identical in style to 1960's Lucille Ball series----although the reliable Gale Gordon is cast as her father-in-law, and she's not a widow. (Ed McMahon is miscast as the husband, but he's still less annoying than he is as Ed McMahon.) The familiar supporting cast reliably goes through their paces as the thin-but-familiar plot unfolds toward the surprise guest at the end. Casual viewers may or may not like this, but those of us who really love Lucy will want to give it a watch....and maybe add it to their collection.
