What We Watched When There Was Nothing to Watch

American Icons: I Love Lucy

Evidently Lucille Ball would be 100 this week…. And Studio 360 certainly took on the subject from all angles.

I mentioned listening to this, in parts all weekend, to my daughter….

Told her that people my age have probably seen every episode- because there was nothing else on… Take the Law and Order franchise, I explained, and how it is always being  aired on some channel- that’s what the Lucille Ball franchise was like- except there were only 1/2 a dozen channels. What’s even better is that she was all on top of Lucy and Desi from a Women’s Study Class she took at her little Catholic Girl’s School.

[ A personal aside. My daughter decided that her bed time was too early and started agitating for a later curfew. I asked what she might do and she thought some more TV was in order. I agreed and told her this would be a great time for the two of us to get to n=know oneanother by watching what I watched when I was little and that she could stay up to watch Nick At Nite. After two nights of the Andy Griffen Show she informed me she was going upstairs to read.]
