Life With Lucy

All right, put your hands in the air if you remember and maybe watched Life With Lucy, the ill-fated final sitcom starring Lucille Ball. I can’t say I ever did, but the plot sounds incredibly… bad.

From based-on-verifiability-not-truth Wikipedia:

Ball played a widowed grandmother who had inherited her husband’s half-interest in a South Pasadena, California, hardware store (the other half being owned by his partner, Curtis McGibbon, played by Gale Gordon). Although, Curtis didn’t like living with Lucy. Lucy’s character insisted on “helping” in the store, even though when her husband was alive she had taken no part in the business and hence knew nothing about it. The unlikely partners were also in-laws, her daughter being married to his son, and all of them, along with their young grandchildren, lived together.


Be sure to watch the intro on TV Party above – it’s worth your time, if not just to hear a painful 80s sitcom theme that very few people ever experienced.

And your obligatory music reference: this is one of the shows Jenny Lewis starred in before moving over to the music side of art. The more you know!
